AMAZING: Meet Lieutenant Toby Cohen The First And Only Nigerian Woman To Serve In Israel’s Army.

The 21-year-old was born in Nigeria to a Nigerian mother and an Israeli father.

Cohen was living with her parents and sister in Kano, before she migrated to Israel.

Cohen said: “I always wanted to come to Israel, ever since I was a small child, I wanted a deeper connection, to understand what ‘Israel’ is, and not just through stories.”

Despite the fact that moving to Israel was dream come true for the woman, it was still hard to adjust to the life in another country.

She said: “New immigrants are often embarrassed and ashamed to speak, because they may say something wrong and I was one of them but at some point I realised that I couldn’t go on like this.

I made a lot of mistakes along the way, and it was hard, but it was worth it.”

The young lady learnt Hebrew and her friends helped her to adjust into the Israeli society.

According to Cohen, her father was happy about her decision to become an officer in the Israeli army.

The soldier’s father was also an officer in the Israeli army.

She said: “He was just as emotional as I was. For him it was a dream come true, and his being there really helped me.” “My mother and my entire family attended the officers’ graduation ceremony.

It is very touching to be the first woman officer from Nigeria in the IDF. Obviously I have fallen in love with Israel. This is my home and I see myself continuing my life here.”

Cohen served as an operations sergeant in the Homefront Command and was later accepted into the officers’ training course.

Her duty as a Deputy Training Officer in Haifa region is to guide people on how to act during natural disasters such as earthquakes, fires and floods, as well as emergencies such as rocket attacks or the threat of a biological/chemical weapon.

Pretty.

Hungerbad has a thing for a woman in Uniform. Well, all except the women wearing the Nigeria Police Uniform.

Your father was happy you decided to join?you had no option sweetheart. All Israeli's must serve the Country.

Joining the Israeli armed forces is not optional for both males and females,as it is compulsory they serve.

Israel and 23 other Countries in the world have this strange law.

It is the law.

This must be because they are surrounded by Arabs/Muslim countries. It's a strategy to make sure they have combat ready citizens incase they are being invaded

Over 2/3 of their citizens are trained soldiers. So normal barber self fit fight war if he is needed.

What we call the state of Israel today was created by the Europeans in 1948
Before then that whole area was known as Palestine.
The Europeans who are there now aren't indigenous to the place.
The only claim they have is the biblical assertion

And once you know the bible is nothing but a tool
Everything becomes much more clearer
Why they are aided by the British and America to commit such horror in the Mediterranean which we foolishly call the middle east.
Wtf is middle east? That's all political jingoism as Dr Ben would say.

Like I've been saying
Everything is working for our downfall in Africa
We need a total overhaul
First we remove the crown of all madness in our minds which is religion.
Then everything else falls into place.
The death of dogma is the beginning of morality.
