“One of the men is called Shlomo and he is an ex-Isreali soldier. He judged that the car was not going to blow up straight away and went to help. He was very brave. “The family in the car were beside themselves and in shock. Shlomo is a lovely chap and he hasn’t been in this country for very long.”

Yeap .. This is what I've come to expect of the IDF after having seen them in action, over and over .. No wonder they are often called the most moral army in the world ..

It's nice to read some good stuff about the IDF after all those horrible attacks in all those misrepresenting posts.

Thank you, my friend, I'm so glad that that brave soldier was in the right place at the right time and was able to rescue the baby and the elderly man from certain awful death.

Thanks Alexa! I'm glad these brave men were able to rescue the baby and the old man. I'm impressed that this was published in the British press.

Great article, Alex! Of course to anyone who knows the heroic risks that Israel soldiers take regularly to keep civilian populations (especially the ones that are trying to kill the soldiers) as safe as possible know that it is deeply ingrained for these soldiers to save human lives even when it requires putting themselves in potentially fatal situations.

Needless to say, this double-life saving is highly admirable, and I'm glad to see that the London Evening Standard published it, and not at all surprised that the led-by-the-nose Arab Israelophobic The Guardian didn't, because they seem to be fatally allergic to say anything good about Israelis.

this exemplifies how the IDF are trained to value human life above all else. the rescued people were blessed to have intelligent and courageous rescuers.
