    Great pics GiladS.

    Also it is interesting to see the amount of conscripts volunteering to serve in combat units. Is there a general feeling that Israel is under an even bigger threat at this time? Or are they just buoyed by the success of Cast lead and the quality of the IDF?

    I believe that Israel prior to the Six Day War and in the first days of the Yom Kippur War was the most anxious and under the greatest threat.

    I didn't live back then but that's from what I understand...

    You could say that Israel has always "lived in between wars".

    I believe the rise in motivation of conscripts to join combat units is due to the better confidence the people have in the IDF and in the state as a whole (due to a change in policies mainly led by Chief of General Staff Ashkenazi and of course Operation Cast Lead).

    I didn't wanna to be rude, just sayin'...

    Oh well, many pics I posted from Cast Lead were deleted by the crappy hosting server I used back then. Since I saved all the pics on my computer, I can upload them in a rar file if anyone is interested. The file is 164 Mo strong !

    Can someone post a nice link to a rar file with all the pictures that IDF Spokesman published from the Cast Lead operation?
