POSTED ON JULY 12, 2012 BY JOHN HINDERAKER IN ISRAEL, MIDDLE EAST
IS SHE OR ISN’T SHE?
This photo apparently has been sweeping the web. The Sun tells us that the woman with the rifle is an IDF soldier obeying the rule that weapons be kept at hand “at all times if they are taken outside their military base.” I’m not sure that is actually the rule, but the photo brings back fond memories of my own experience in Israel, when my wife and I were always happy to see pairs of IDF soldiers making their way through crowds with rifles on their backs. Those were generally men, of course. Anyway, here is the picture:

Default My Wife

At first glance I thought it was my wife. Couldn't be her, her weapon of choice is a SIG M400.

I don't doubt it, but suspect the shot is 'staged.'

One sight I'll always remember is a young Israeli couple, under a Haifa streetlight. Gently holding each other, making small talk. You know, the way young lovers do...

...both of them dressed in BDU's, with automatic rifles slung on their backs.

No reason it can't be real: note this pic of female IDF soldiers also out of uniform and armed:



God bless Israel. God damn us if we ever abandon them.

Note they have a second clip siamesed to the one in the rifle...

I'd wager they would be a serious hazard to anything they aimed at.
