WORLD: Women in Israeli Army facing more combat situations

NEGEV DESERT, Israel - Recently, the United States military rescinded a policy restricting women to non-combat roles. The move, instigated by then-U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, was partially an acknowledgment of the fact that many women have found themselves in combat during the Iraq and Afghan Wars; a situation created by the lack of a clear front line, in concert with the guerilla tactics employed by America's enemies.

WORLD: Bakery brings American-style food to Israel

It is sacrosanct that bagels, mandel bread, and corned beef are Jewish foods. Yet, in Israel, exactly none of them are considered particularly Jewish. Maybe it can be chalked up to the intentional distancing that Israel's founders wanted to make from their Ashkenazi origins, but Israelis tend to be much more eager to go for Jachnun (a Yemenite pastry) on the weekend than a bagel and lox.
