They'll kill you with a smile, or they'll just...kill you. But a society where every young girl spends two years serving their country with a huge automatic weapon is a society that will never go down without a fight, no matter how much Barack Obama pleads with them to do so.
No Israeli supermodels, or actresses, or entertainers on the last night of Hanukkah...Instead, I present your everyday Israeli female, beautifully attired in standard military fatigues, and all of them armed to the motherlovin' teeth:
No, darling, we salute you, for the work you have done in keeping the only true democracy in the godforsaken Middle East safe, and for allowing Jews worldwide to have a place, should they ever have the need, to call home. The 8th night of Hanukkah is all about you. We honor and thank you for your service in the name of freedom, and we admire you for still looking stunningly, achingly beautiful while doing it.
May God bless you, and keep you.
