Rule 5 Blogging: Israeli Defence Forces (again!)

It’s the weekend and time, once again, for our version of Rule 5 Blogging. Robert Stacy McCain described as putting pictures of pretty women somewhat déshabillé, but, on this site, our Rule 5 Blogging doesn’t put up pictures of Piper Pirabo in her summer clothes, but women, in full military gear, serving their countries in the armed forces. The terribly sexist authors on this site celebrate strong women, women who can take care of themselves and take care of others, women who have been willing to put their lives on the line in some not-so-friendly places, women who truly do have the “We can do it!” attitude. Click on any picture to see full sized. Today, women of the IDF.

This isn’t the first time that THE FIRST STREET JOURNAL has featured Israeli soldiers on Rule 5 Blogging, but there are three reasons for it:

  1. Female Israeli soldiers have fought for their country on the front lines, along with the males;
  2. Featuring the Israelis does infuriate our friends on the left just so much; and
  3. Israeli women are just so pretty!

The Caracal Battalion is a combat battalion of the Israeli army and is composed of both male and female soldiers. Women were previously prevented from serving in direct combat positions, but due to growing public pressure, the Caracal unit was formed in 2000, and was assigned patrols along the Israel-Jordan border.
