Its not a fair "war" that's for sure. The daunting picture of Palestinians throwing rocks at Isreali tanks is very unsettling.

Women's roles in Palestine (and Isreal) have been ignored. I did a lot of research on women in the first Intifada, it is interesting to see how women's rights have really stayed stagnant.

Hi. I think that you are absoutly right that women in Isreal have been deprived of enrolling in their local or countries army. They get denied their rights as it is, and I think that if they want to help their country and if they want to show how they are effected every day by whats going on, then they should be able to do whatever they want and can to show how they feel. Thank you. Lucy

I would like to offer my sincerest support to the idea that Isreali women should be allowed to fight for there country. It is wrong to deny anyone the right to fight for there beliefs. And as I, as a man I think that any guy who doesnt want the women to fight is an idiot! Better them than me I alway say!!! LOL.

there are plenty of women who would give up their lives to defend there country.. i am a sri lankan tamil.. and in our country there are also fighting.. i believe in what the tamils do.. suicide bombings are a shame because most men get involved to defend their country not, to put it bluntly, commit suicide...
