Here’s an idea Paphitis, how about we swap enemies…

The CNG takes on the Gaza strip and Israel takes on Turkey!

That’s a lot more balanced, don’t you think? :lol:

Turkey could overrun Israel within a week, and Netenyahu would end up with a Turkish cucumber up his arse by the weekend!

Yeah, because they are superhuman like Trump, aren’t they? :roll:

Just as a fly is attracted to a turd, you seem to have a fascination with all things crap!


No probably because they are better trained than you. :wink:

Oh and probably because they actually serve their country and are willing to die for it. :wink:

Trained to go to war the next day. Because in Israel, anything can happen.

Plus I still reckon they will rip your balls apart if they had to. :wink:

Here’s a clue... BILLIONS OF DOLLARS year in and year out, against impoverished 3rd world neighbors under constant embargoes.

Now compare that with Cyprus' predicament.

But what am I saying here... :? I'm asking you to take facts and contemplate when your brain can only prevent you from walking into walls and smashing your cranium!


3.8 billion per year.

Not enough to buy 25 F-35s. Let me give you a tip Get Real. The Israelis spends 22 billion per year.

Australia has also received billions worth of US Military aid in decades past. During Vietnam it was a case of have whatever you want. They had so much hardware they were actually tossing it overboard into the ocean from Aircraft Carriers.

Greece and Turkey got billions in aid as well.

But I still don’t understand what this has to do with this thread.

Maybe you think women are no good and should be chained to the sink.

Well the times have changed. And Israel has proven women are definitely good enough with the right training.

So, maybe Cyprus should look at the Israelis as a guiding example. Make military service compulsory for women?

Let me begin by congatulating you on the serious bit of research you have done to come to such conclusion.

I mean the photo is all you need, it says it all right?

Like hell it does you stupid blithering idiot.

Here are some facts about women in Israel.

1. Women comprise 25% of Israel's 120-member Knesset.

2. 31% of Israel's top 100 company directors are women

3. The number of women running companies in the TA-100, which comprise Israel’s biggest businesses as measured by market valuation is 19%.

4. Women in Israel have 19% representation as CEOs

5. Women currently make up 3% of the IDF's combat soldiers.

Now that is some serious empowerment right.

Youuuuuuuuuuuuuuu stupid boy.

At the risk of possible retriribution. :shock:

My last visit to Israel coincided with Yom HaZikaron.

Prior to the usual events, during the previous days preparation, there seemed to be a lot of female soldiers around. I have to say that it seemed to me - with very little exceptions - that the 3% were pretty hot.

That's it. I'll get my coat.

You are not paying attention to what is being said, you are due for detention, it is your last warning. lol

Notice the signicance of the two words and there are very important to the subject matter in hand.

combat soldiers


Was this event in the front of a battle? I guess it was, it was a battle to win the hearts of the gullable.

Gullible! :twisted:


Absolutely. :lol:

They were clearly a tank crew though. FWIW.

I'll leave it at that I think. :wink:

BTW. The idea, expressed in another thread, that Israel would be "just another Arab shithole" if it weren't for US money doesn't really hold water. Unless you've never been there and seen the place of course.

Although what was said was true enough it does not explain it fully.

They also have an arab population which is cheap labour and also they can just take their best lands as well as their water supply as and when they want and lock them up in enclaves when ever they feel like it.

The last country to have such easy access to resources of all kind were the Nazis. Which is quite appropriate really. The Nazis did not need American help they had the German industrial complex to help them.

As to the Arab shithole comment, it is a common sentiment to express when you steal their resources ohps I meant buy it very cheaply, install a dictatorship so your facilitations are not threatened in any way. Imagine if Saudis had a democracy and had a man like Mosaddegh come to power. Or even any of the other Arab countires for that matter.

Unfortunately for you, Israel has been world leading in terms of allowing women to serve in front lines positions. They started doing this from 1962.

Since 1962 to this day, 535 women have lost their lives in service.

Each year, 1500 females are drafted into the IDF every year, and remain in the reserve to age 38.

Seems to me, Cyprus can learn a lot from Israel.

I don't think Turkey can, as the only thing Turkey will do is put women in Burkhas. :lol:

Let me address your other points about Women as Directors and CEOs etc.

The numbers you mentioned are actually quite impressive. It indicates that Israel does have equal opportunity for women. 19% as CEOs and 25% women in the Knesset, 31% as Directors is pretty dam good.

Unrealistic to expect women to occupy 50% of these positions because they simply just do not have the same ambition or drive as men. There are of course many exceptions where there are of course so many women with exceptional ambition and drive. However, for the majority, they are genetically engineered to eventually want to focus on other things, like motherhood. Most want to have children. Again, there are exceptions where many put their careers or ambition ahead of having a family. That's ok as well. To each their own. It's up to them to do as they wish with their lives. If they want to strive and be a CEO of a multi national, then sure, go for gold. If they are good enough, they should make it.

If they want to join the IDF, then so be it. the key here is to allow them to have the opportunity. And it seems they have those opportunities in the IDF as well.

About 87% of all positions in the IDF are open to women. I don't know which 87% are available and which 13% are not available apart from the obvious. They probably wouldn't be able to join the Special Forces because of the physical rigours required. Most women probably just wouldn't be able to deal with that. 99% of men also just wouldn't be able to pass selection. But that's a different kettle of fish.

Israeli women I have found out have been serving since 1948, out of necessity. But in 1962, there has been a steady movement towards allowing women access to the IDF till this day. I believe the are one of the very first if I am not mistaken.

It's a good thing inmho. :wink:

And politics aside, I actually think there are many things we can all learn from them.
