One intriguing fact about Israel is not just that the have some of the most beautiful women in the world, but that Isreali women are always walking around with an M-16 rifle, this women love guns, so much they go everywhere with it, just like as women from other parts of the world are addicted to always carrying phones or make-up kits, Israel women don't joke with their guns.
At present, a person must be at least 21 years of age and in good health to apply for a permit. Other conditions include residence in a West Bank settlement, a border area or an area near the separation barrier. This is due to the incessant attacks by the nearby Palestinians carrying out terrorist attacks against the Isreali citizens like in time past when a Palestinian terrorist would drive into Israel for suicide bombings, or attacks unarmed innocent people with matchets, or battle axes or guns.
Qualified citizens carrying firearms in public contribute to the sense of security, are an important line of defense from ‘lone-wolf’ attacks and thus strengthen public security,” Erdan said.(Minister Of Israeli Public Security).
It's also worthy of note that those Palestinians where actually named so by the Romans their biblical name are Philistines, an age long battle that has refused to subside, yet one side keep winning while the other country is a wreck.
Nevetheless the way Israeli woman took the gun licensing law serious would keep one asking are they really for enemies or for Boyfriends or Husbands that would mess-up (just thinking though).
The Government of Israel have however made it easy for the people of the country to carryout self-defence aganist terrorist or an enemy invasion
Israel has one of the Most powerful military in the world.
