The IDF – Israeli Defense Forces – are not only, arguably, the best military in the world, they’ve got a great sense of humor in the face of war with those who want to annihilate Israel. We at the Curmudgeon are strong supporters of Israel – the ONLY democracy in the Middle East – and we love the IDF.
At least one photo journalist has a book on the women of the IDF, with great pictures of very attractive ladies. This one happens to be one of our favorites.
They’ve also got a great Facebook page.
As for their sense of humor, remember a couple of weeks ago when Hamas hacked into a pizza store Facebook page and put up threats of jihad. The good people of Israel, and please feel free to read into that comment that we find NO “good people” in Gaza or the West Bank, responded wonderfully.
Hamas hackers overtook the Domino’s Pizza Israel Facebook page, posting threatening messages against Israelis. They didn’t know Israelis have been punching out jokes at a quick pace. Hamas hackers wrote: “Today will strike deep in Israel, Tel Aviv, Haifa, Jerusalem, Ashkelon, Ashdod more than 2000 rockets. We’ll start at 7. Counting back towards the end of Israel … Be warned!”
An Israeli response read: “Hey, please reserve a missile for me with jalapenos, green olives, extra cheese, and mushrooms. You have my address. Tell the delivery boy to activate the alarm when it is arriving, so I know to put my pants on.”
Today, comes the topper. We’re not sure the latest Facebook page will ever be topped, but we’re pretty sure the Israelis will keep trying. Hot girls telling the world that they heart the IDF with selfies. Here’s an example.
We’ve been reading about how Hamas is demoralized. The following is from an IDF soldier, as reported in the Jerusalem Post.
…a recognizable wave of demoralization has washed over Hamas’s combat battalions. “They simply escape, leaving behind weapons and suicide bomb vests that were laid out for battle. This morning we stormed a position, and they just weren’t there. I don’t see a determined enemy. We have encountered stronger pockets of fighting in the past. But now, I would not give them a high grade for fighting spirit.”
And, faced with an IDF manned (womaned?) by and supported by people like these, they should be demoralized. They should also be questioning the burka.
