(Israel National News) A new book sums up 13 years of research on female participation in IDF combat units and declares the feminist experiment in the Israeli military a failure. "Lochamot Betzahal" by Col. (res.) Raza Sagi, a former infantry regiment commander, points to high rates of serious injury among women serving in combat units, and to involvement of radical political groups behind the scenes of the campaign for combat service by women.
The book's name is a Hebrew play on words that means both "female combat soldiers in the IDF" and "women fighting the IDF."
"Deadly Consequences: How Cowards are Pushing Women into Combat" is a resounding indictment of a policy that is bound not only to erode the American military, but to jeopardize American security and society as well.

"The study found that a particularly high percentage of women who served in combat roles suffered physical harm during their service and will suffer for the rest of their lives from ruptured discs, stress fractures in the pelvis, uterine prolapse and more," Sagi told Maariv/NRG.
