1. Equality in the military means that...
Gideon Reader   (05.30.12)
...EVERYONE **except** for the children of senior Officers and Min/Def Civilian appointees, in the classic picture of nepotism, get treated like crap. These young women deserve to get treated like the same crap as everyone else does. No more. No less. Shared risk? Shared "benefits". Shared crap. GEEEZE.You think that the IDF would have figured this out by now. having to re-learn how to mal treat subordinates over and over again is NOT smart.
2. Quick ...Call Gen ORNA BIMBET on the case
Al   (05.30.12)
she will set it all right. These are the ones who are supposed to protect you...yeah right..
3. Shouldn't 'SHAS' have something to say about this?...
Edithann ,   USA   (05.30.12)
What would Haredi women demand if they had the chance?...hahahaha Can't you all see how much of a lession you Jews have taught us Goys? TATA
4. @1&2 yawn u r so not funny!
5. equal pay 4 these brave women of the IDF!
6. y Edithann we haven't heard from u in 'coon's age!
Mandy ,   Israel   (05.31.12)
where have u been hiding? Perhaps you may wish to go back there for a while longer? (see and you thought we Jews couldn't be taught manners from you Goyim!) "Tata! Horn Please!"
7. is this news or an op-ed
Shalom Hartman   (05.31.12)
Look at the way this article is written. It doesn't leave any room for doubt where the writer's sympathies lie. It could be that in this case the story is justified, I don't know, but this should have been reported as news with facts, not without all the superlatives. If we can't do it - how do you expect the foreign journalists in Israel to be unbiased in their reporting?
8. IDF women demand the essential right to sing in the Cave.

9. # 3 Edithann........
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (05.31.12)
I don't think anyone has ever taught you anything.
10. What about Border Guard Volunteers?
David Lev ,   Israel   (05.31.12)
On a private basis, everyone is entitled to try and earn a living, but the way that's done is a public affair. There are many hundreds of dedicated Magav volunteers who take risks, probably a little more dangerous that the one's these women are compalining about. These volunteers include females too! They also incur personal expenses to do the job of protecting our people...and get no salary. In addition they have to endure humiliating ill informed comments likening their sacrifice to kapos or nazis. Sorry, I might agree that a pay increase could be helpful, but don't play the public sob story card, we both know that it doesn't work except for serving to undermine the efforts of others, females included, who do their job quietly & efficiently.
11. Fo girls!!!!
Yael ,   Israel   (05.31.12)
Israel in general and the IDF on particular are big on slaking the talk but fail in walking the walk. It's about time to actually give equal rights and not just pretend!!!!
12. Equal pay for equal work
Bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (05.31.12)
especially for those serving under harsh terms of patrolling, policing, and keeping Israel safe. Jewish women are some of your greatest assets. They insure Jews will be born in Israel. Treat them well, they are your future and the mothers of your future Jewish generations. By not fairly compensating women, you leave yourself open for comparison of muslim values. Women are people too.
13. # 11 Yael one thing..
Bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (05.31.12)
thank G-d Jewish women aren't being stoned to death or, honor killed. We have some bright notes even if equal pay and treatment is so lagging. I maintain equal pay is equal rights. Here's an idea, have israel's women protest, march, make noise until all women are treated equally. Does Israel have a "Rosa Parks"? Time to demand equality by the women who are being used and treated less fairly.
14. # 8 Michael maybe you should
Bad Assed Jew   (05.31.12)
live in a cave, alone, no music, no females just another ass like you, for company? As a woman, that would suit me fine. Would they have 'visiting' hours, like in a zoo, if we wanted to taunt you or, throw some peanuts and watch you scramble for the shells? I assume you have a brain, please use it.
15. # 7 Who said journalists are fair?
Bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (05.31.12)
foreign or otherwise? Most are leftist, most have no experience in the real world. Maybe that's why so many people are now watching FOX News?? I know I can't stand the far leftist who seem preoccupied with everything and solve nothing.
