We’ll wait.

Paul Ciotti: These Americans who join the IDF (instead of the US marines) all say the same thing when you ask them why–“I wanted to give something back.” We’ll, that’s fine, giving something back shows a noble sense of gratitude. The only problem is all these guys want to give it back to Israel, not the United States.
