From Lee Rodgers:
So now the Obama administration has OK’d women for combat roles in the military. Israel, which has plenty of experience with war, at one time — when they were fighting for survival — also gave women a large role in ground combat operations.
They dropped the policy because they found it was getting more MEN killed, trying to fulfill their cultural (and some say genetic) role as protectors of women. Take note of this:
“Women have been barred from combat in Israel since 1950, when a review of the 1948 Arab-Israeli War showed how harmful their presence could be. The study revealed that men tried to protect and assist women rather than continue their attack. As a result, they not only put their own lives in greater danger, but also jeopardized the survival of the entire unit. The study further revealed that unit morale was damaged when men saw women killed and maimed on the battlefield.
“Writes Edward Norton, a reservist in the Israel Defense Forces: ‘Women have always played an important role in the Israeli military, but they rarely see combat; if they do, it is usually by accident. No one in Israel, including feminists, has any objection to this situation. The fact that the Persian Gulf War has produced calls to allow women on the front lines proves only how atypical that war was and how little Americans really understand combat.’” — World Net Daily
