    Paul, I agree with most everything you right here, but you statement: "No foreign soldier ever fought for Israel." would be most interesting to my South African stepdad, and his friends, who all fought for Israel. There are US troops right now in Israel, and will be there to help operate the anti-missile batteries if necessary. And not that they fought FOR Israel, but in '56 both English and French navies and air forces fought alongside Israeli ones. The IDF has almost always welcomed soldiers from abroad to join its ranks. No?
