    Not content with calling for women to die while protecting their fighters who were able to dress in women's clothing and escape, last week, Hamas are now recruiting 68 year old grandmothers to blow themselves to pieces.

    Putting aside the entire issue of suicide-bombers, why not? I see nothing remarkable here. Equal opportunities and all that.

    Or do you think women should somehow be above the fray? Is this really a point of view based on a form of misogyny?

    Besides, from what I gather, it's not so much about recruiting but more about volunteering.

    I could not agree more Ms Velvet, I hope my post did not give the erroneous impression that I thought women weren't tough enough.

    The days of ladies being banned from 800 metre track and field events is long past. (except for professional tennis players who aren't as yet up to five sets)

    Doesn't matter. I read it anyway and thought it only reinforced my initial point. ;)

    It wasn't a double post! I just thought it was and then I realised it wasn't so I rewrote it anyway. Which you probably realise by now. I hope this isn't too confusing.
