American Jews, Other 'Lone Soldiers' Serve Israel

The two Americans killed in fighting in the Gaza Strip followed in the footsteps of scores of Jews from around the world who have volunteered to fight for Israel. Israel calls them the lone soldiers: They are men and women in the prime of their lives who have left their parents and often comfortable lives behind in places like Sydney, London, Los Angeles and elsewhere to join the Israel Defense Forces, marching in the desert and taking up arms to defend the Jewish state. Spokeswoman at the Israel Consul General in Los Angeles Marina Rozhansky said, there are about 2,000 lone soldiers serving in the military.
