** Gadot is not only a model and actress, she received military training as part of her mandatory 2 years of service in the IDF. She attributes her gun training and willingness to perform her own stunts to why she was chosen for the Fast and Furious franchise and is currently lined up to play Wonder Woman.

She attributes her gun training and willingness to perform her own stunts to why she was chosen for the Fast and Furious franchise and is currently lined up to play later played Wonder Woman.



* Actress Creator/GalGadot's main acting credit has been her role as Gisele Yashar in the ''[[Film/TheFastAndTheFurious Fast and Furious]]'' franchise. When she was announced as being the first actress to play Franchise/WonderWoman on the big screen, the reaction was overwhelmingly, vehemently negative due to her thin frame, with accusations thrown at WB and DC Comics for wanting an unhealthy model rather than a "real woman". Those people likely did not know that while she is a model, Gadot performed all her own stunts in ''Fast and Furious'', received military training as part of her mandatory two years of service in the IDF, was a fitness trainer for said military, can handle guns and in addition to the martial arts she already knows, immediately began training in jiu-jitsu, capoeira and sword fighting. Also, she attributed her training as a main reason why she landed her role in ''Fast and Furious'', a stunt-heavy franchise.

* ''Series/MadMen'' referenced this in an episode where executives of the company try to learn about Israel while considering how to pitch it as a tourist destination. All they can figure out on their own is that the women are attractive and have machine guns. When asked for her opinion on Israelis, a New York Jew can only advise Don Draper not to cross them.

Israelis are badass. No ifs, ands, or buts. They are a [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Proud Warrior Nation]] and it is a national law that each one must have a MomentOfAwesome on his Bar Mitzvah. The polite softspoken Israeli with glasses is a myth. If one miraculously appears, you can count on him being a BadassBookworm. If an Israeli is a villain you can count on him being something cool like an ArmsDealer or [[ProfessionalKiller an assassin]]. Every female Israeli is an ActionGirl [[TheSquadette Squadette]] who ''always'' looks great in her combat fatigues and beret with her Uzi jauntily slung over her shoulder. Every male Israeli is an AcePilot, or a spy for the UsefulNotes/{{Mossad}} (their other intelligence agencies are so secretive, Hollywood hasn't heard of them; and anyway no one can beat that name for [[RuleOfCool coolness]]). The Israeli Defense Force does not have a single ObstructiveBureaucrat like, oh, every other army in the entire world. It is too much of a BadassArmy.

* Danny Lewin, co-founder of Akamai Technologies, grew up in Israel and was once an officer in the Sayaret Matkal, the Israeli General Staff Reconnasiance Unit. He was the first person to die in the 9/11 terror attack, being knifed by one of the terrorists on American Airlines Flight 11 a good 15-20 minutes before the plane hit the WTC. While it is impossible to prove either way, his friends and family believe that this happened because he made an unsuccessful attempt to retake the plane.
