"For female Mossad agents, life is like a spy-movie — though not always as glamorous.
Theirs is a world of intrigue, sleepless nights and, sometimes, flirtation, in conditions of
ever-lurking danger, all for the sake of the state, with immense strains on their families."
Israel has always been an Equal Opportunity Employer. The country is, comparatively, tiny. Their enemies outnumber and have them completely surrounded. Ever since they became a Nation they have been continually under attack. Everyone in the country is expected to take up arms when necessary. Women serve proudly, bravely and willingly in whatever capacity needed.
“A man who wants to gain access to a forbidden area has less chance of being allowed in…
A smiling woman has a bigger chance of success.”
Works for me.
"We flirt, but the line is drawn at sex.”
Even as a heterosexual male, I like that thought.
"Efrat noted soberly that she knows her “life is over” if she is caught — and said
it’s a risk she’s willing to take for the sake of Israel’s national security."
Reality or not, I do not like that possibility.
“Contrary to stereotypes, you see that women’s abilities are superior to men in terms
of understanding the territory, reading situations, spatial awareness.
When they’re good, they’re very good.”
Were I an Israeli, I'd be happy knowing these women are on the job. As a supporter of Israel and its continued existence, I approve of their use of whatever means necessary to continue their existence.
