Forget about much the ballyhooed Zombie Apocalypse that film and television producers have romanticized to the point of becoming a cultural phenomenon. The American people may find themselves busy just dealing with a standard, run of the mill apocalypse that could kill millions.

Bombs away.

The Obama appointees running the United States Institute of Social Engineering (also known as the Pentagon) are simply giddy with excitement over a handful of The Fairer Sex passing the basic physical strength and endurance requirements for the US Army’s “elite” Ranger School. The following expected from the prospective Rangers on Day One:

  • 49 push-ups in two minutes
  • 59 sit-ups in two minutes

As reported by Fox News via the Military.com news portal on Oct. 3, 2014, a U.S. Army intelligence warning is getting the word out to military personnel and their families to exercise vigilance after ISIS called on its many supporters to “scour social media for addresses of their family members — and to ‘show up [at their homes] and slaughter them.'”

Depending who you talk to, Israel’s military recruitment efforts aimed at young Arab Christians has either been a dismal failure or a step in the right direction, albeit a slow one. A prime example would be the two very different takes on the same story as reported by the openly tilted “supporters of the Palestinian cause” left-of-center Middle East Monitor news portal on April 23, 2014, and also reported on the opposite end of the spectrum by the self-described “Jewish and Israel news for Jewish media” internet portal The Jewish and Israel News Service on April 22, 2014.

Arab-Christian Woman Determined to Serve and Defend Israel

“I would sacrifice my life for the State of Israel and all of its citizens …”

With Bedouin and Druze Muslims possibly serving Israel as her inspiration, Staff Sergeant Mona Liza Abdo isn’t just proud of her Christian Faith or her Arab heritage or simply her Israeli citizen … she’s proud of being a leader in the Israeli Army.

As recently cited on the official weblog of the Israeli Defence Force (IDF), SSgt Abdo recently completed her third year in the IDF, which is a year longer than Israeli Jewish women are required by law.
