Israeli Women – Images of the IDF

An open request:

Putting aside the politics of the Middle East, I am asking every blogger  to view the IDF – Girls youtube vid. I have never seen such positive images of women. It was especially gratifying to see the affectionately woman to woman  pictures. 

As uncomfortable as it may be, to admit it, Israeli women seem to be flourishing, while Arab women (outside of Israel) seem to be stifled.

Are there any comparable vids out there showing American, Arab, and/or any other female military or otherwise personnel so impressively and so unselfconsciously? The emphasis is on woman to woman, preferably, open expressions of same-sex affection!

It should not come as a surprise that my champion is the  writer/journalist,  Amira Hass.
