"It is God who arms me with strength
    and keeps my way secure.
He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;
    he causes me to stand on the hieghts.
He trains my hands for battle..."
(Psalm 18:32-34)

The IDF's Lotar counter-terrorism unit has a section called the "Monkey Unit." These daring and death-defying soldiers specialize in climbing and mountaineering, skills which come in handy among the great heights of the Holy Land. Shabbat shalom, friends.
