Mitchell Cohen ,   Gush Etzion, Israel   (01.02.13)
....this could have been any of our children....It is scary enough knowing that your child is in harms way when he/she finishes tironut and starts participating in missions and/or wars, but you can't even sleep when your child is in tironut!!!!

When your child is in the army, you're in the army aswell!!
6. In my entire Army career
Ethan Schwartz ,   Eilat   (01.02.13)
I never found a reason to shoot my weapon in auto mode.
7. Trainees should start with non-automatic
Barbara ,   Haifa Israel   (01.02.13)
then slowly advance to automatic. Something wrong in the teaching methods.
8. Naama
Lauren ,   Israel   (01.03.13)
Sending my deep felt wishes and prayers for Naama's recovery and well being.
9. Who are the recruits?
Mike ,   Edmonton, AB   (01.03.13)
When I enlisted in the IDF, years ago, few soldiers in our unit were complete idiots, imbecils, in the eyes of the rest of the soldiers as well as the people in charge, to the extent that we removed the firing pin from their M16, to avoid any risks. By the looks of it, the selection of new recruits in the IDF did not improved.
10. That's what happens when you have a popular army
If the army wasn't a people's army but a professional army, this kind of incidents wouldn't occur

ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (01.03.13)
fate in the well paid army s desiteratas.Very risky.
12. Lack of dicipline, lack of training, lack of leadership
Al   (01.03.13)
If you were to hear the horror stories of what is going on and how poorly fed and poorly clothed the soldiers are, you would scream. Parents always have to buy extra basic military clothing for the young soldiers.(undershirts, etc) As to the food, its barely dog food. All this can be blamed on the lousy leadership of Gantz. He has proven to be a horrible COS. I wish the young lady a speedy recovery and a quick exit from this dysfunctional excuse of an Army. You must throw out the current COS and start rebuilding the army, for your own sakes.
13. #12 Oran- Friendly fire accidents
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (01.03.13)
are not as uncommon as you may think, every army has them, including the IDF It's an unfortuante situation, but they do happen
14. #7 Barbara - How about Nuzzle Loaders?
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (01.03.13)
15. #9 Mile Edmonton-iDIOTS ?
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (01.03.13)
Are you including yourself among them?
16. to #7
You are never allowed to use automatic.
17. #10 Not at all true
BEN JABO (MACHAL) ,   ISRAEL   (01.03.13)
U.S. Army, are all paid volutners, no sconsrips, a side from the Natiooal Guard, who volunteered and then called up for service These accidents happen in very army, do a bit of research before displaying your ignorance so publicy
18. Bimbos with guns? Forget it.
sonia ,   paris france   (01.03.13)
Israel should just stick to pushing buttons. These bozos don't have a chance on the ground against serious Arab warriors.
19. #18 Sonia, never fear you won't get one
