    Although getting killed should not be the highest priority, it is important to have a spirit of solidarity. The statement of such as "Why should I risk getting killed for Israel?" Is very cynical, and can be more accurately re-stated as follows: "as long as there are other idiots who are ready to die, slowing down the enemy to buy time for me while I am running away, let them do that job." But the trouble for such a thinker, is that this idiot-victim MUST be found, otherwise, she won't be able to have enough time to run away and exit Israel. Without these idiots and suckers who sacrificed themselves during the 1973 war, the parents of that person were going to get executed by the victorius Arab armies. All of them, and she was not going to be born. Thus it is important to read not only between the lines, but more importantly, also BEHIND THE LINES!!!
