In the last 24 hours or so, a passel of IDF girlfriends had some play with a camera, a la “a boo grab” showing off some string bikini bootay and backsides bare of all but the guns, which got me curious as to who else has been snapping pictures or recording videos along the themes of beauty in uniform, girls with guns, platoons just havin’ a little fun, and despite the job description — or because of it — just a whole lot of love and bonding going on.

Choose one or a few — I couldn’t watch all of these again . . . well, let me think about that.

Many of these do raise the question: what is was will the fighting be about?

Even the lasses covered in black burqa and holding big sticks for weapons look pretty good.

Maybe it’s the music that most changes how everything looks . . . .

Also: Anyone, I know, may experience YouTube videos in serial fashion, but there’s something about having a whole collection on one page, a kind of From Russian to Israel With Love — and some grins between — that holds this experience in one place.

Enjoy.

A retired drill instructor taught me and a lot of other folks how to dance in the country-western way (knowledge that I handily passed along by teaching coach Joe Gibbs how to dance the “Macharina”, but I’ll leave that story for another day), so it was with the memory of good times that I found this cafeteria “flash mob” video from Afghanistan.

I don’t know what all the fighting’s about, but I know what peace is about.  I’m a little prejudiced here, but I think this is what peace looks like and this, this peace, especially in the eternal oasis of the Jewish heart.
