Santosh, India

Though the number of kills of Hezbollah were high by IDF in the second Lebanon War, how would you regard the Infantry urban warfare tactics and close quarter combats if any?? Hi Santosh, The IDF has vast experience in Urban warfare and close quarter combat from its missions and time spent in Gaza and the […]

I am Noah, from Kampala, Uganda, Eastafrica, 25 years old, in pursuit of my lately vocation to priesthood. What I love most in life is to be in peace and harmony, on this planet earth, and what I hate most is being selfish and lies. Treat life as the sea, your heart as the shore, […]

Esther, USA

Hello, Yagil! I’m very excited to befriend an Israeli soldier. I’m an ex-infantry soldier, like yourself, with exception of having served in the first Lebanon war (1981-82) vs. the second one (in 2006). I live in LA, California and visit Israel very frequently (my whole family lives in Israel).  How far are you from the […]

Rhonda, USA

I have a question but this one is pretty tough. I’ll totally understand if you don’t have time to take it on but just let me know. The subject has to do with hating one’s enemies. I think the FaS is a great place to get into it. Something happened to me earlier this week. […]

Sam, Canada

I’m a Muslim convert (was originally Jewish on my mother side) and now live in Montreal.  If Israel is a Jewish state, then why does it not annex the West Bank, which holds some of your people’s holiest sites (Abraham’s tomb, Jacob’s tomb, etc.)?? It seems to be that there is some semblance of an […]

Jasmine, USA

Why are you a soldier? Have you ever, directly or indirectly, caused a human life to come to an end? If not, are you afraid of this happening? What do you think of the wall? Is it fair for the citizens of Gaza to be held in a prison when most of them are guilty […]

Randi, USA

How does Israel maintain any restraint when she is under constant threat and attack? I realize the “world” condemns each step she takes to protect herself only after each assault on her citizens. Wouldn’t it be easier to simply put an end to the nonsense first and deal with fall out after? I know the […]

Imran, Germany

I am a Ahmadi Muslim, living in Germany. While you where in the infantry and after that, did you feel yourself getting colder insight or do you have more hate after it against Muslims? The base of the question is the movie “Muenich” from Steven Spielberg, where he shows, that people get changed insight. Did […]

Pedro, Portugal

First and foremost, as a veteran soldier myself, allow me to salute you with the highest respect and admiration. Unlike you people, It’s easy and, truthfully, humbling to claim I’m protecting my country when actually no-one would be insane enough to attack a NATO member, bringing the threat level to as low as 0. You […]

Meyer, New York

Do most members of the IDF believe in God? When you read the torah, do you feel a closeness to the armies of KIng David, Solomon, etc? Hi Meyer, Most Jews in the IDF i think do believe in God, or at the least that someone is up there looking out for us. Many soldiers […]
