At a forum about women’s tennis I read that after two years of being a soldier, world No.18 Shahar Peer completed her duty, gave back her uniform and received official release documents.
Shahar Peer comes from Israel, a country where military service is obligatory for both men and women. Being a celebrity, Shahar could have avoided the service, but she didn’t. Of course, as a tennis star, she had certain privileges and her military service was often just symbolic, but still, it’s nice that she wanted to do her part.
Shame on Peer..she served in a “defence” force that has killed so many innocent Palestinian children and women.
Shame on you, she’s doing it for her country because it’s mandatory… let’s not get involved in politics.
I respect Shahar for doing her service. She is proud of were she comes from.
