So far, the highlight of our fact-finding adventure in Israel was getting to attend the graduation ceremony for the Israeli Air Force.
I'm pretty sure we were the only tourists there. The rest were the new pilots and their families, of course, but Prime Minister Netanyahu came too, along with other high ranking dignitaries. And not only that, but after giving his speech, the Prime Minister stayed for the entire ceremony, as each new pilot received his or her wings in a personalized presentation.
Can you imagine our own Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, even coming to an event like this, let alone staying for the whole thing?
And then what? An air show of our aging fighter planes, in contrast to Israel's F-15s and F-35s, the most advanced military aircraft in the world?
By the way:
Israel's new pilots are mostly Millennials. While their counterparts in the rest of the west are arguing about gender pronouns, these young men and women are fighting real battles.
