"The point is that the IDF does not exclude females from combat. Period."
Again, notice the assignment of the Caracal. That's an exclusion. That's part of the shell game for avoiding unnecessary casualties or defeats. Our U.S. forces play the game, too. We've done the same with homosexuals in order to avoid demoralization and disasters.

I'm not sure what your point is. I have shown that the official policy of the Israeli government and the IDF is that females are eligible for combat roles. I have shown that there are coed infantry units in the IDF. Currently, there are three of them. Yes, they are basically stationary defense battalions but that's like saying a combat unit of our National Guard is not a combat unit. The Caracal has engaged in combat. Arab forces are not going to hold back if their plans are to strike where the Caracal is stationed.
Is the IDF dragging its feet to meet the demands of feminists screaming for equality? Yes they are. Is it accurate to say the IDF used to have women in combat roles but not longer do because it didn't work out? No, it is not.
