    " leftwing Israeli media outlet " - mm..well more like the biggest most successful comedy show on Israeli TV, one that people quote from "by the water cooler" the following week. and as to your "have a cushy desk job" remark. For every soldier on the front there are about 5 in the back units supplying food, clothes arms and managing the whole thing and so forth. these soldiers have weird clothes old weapons and funny looking badges. They count grenades in hidden bunker. others supply all the above mentioned with a moment of relief and perform music to the soldiers. so don't you go on judging people by the color of their army hat !. speaking of TAGLIT : many Jewish American friends I met whom participated in TAGLIT mocked the whole thing (rightfully..) as being old fashion - one sided and annoying. They mostly took advantage of it to travel after college.. The comedy sketch.. well quite funny I'd say ! Everything is laughable..oh wait not American Jews, unless it is on SNL but that is a great great classic American show !! ha ! Basically Alice and Liel both fits just right into the Taglit bus. And yeah I said it with a deep deep deep cynical tone.
