On The Sexual



he Israel Defense Forces is
battling a new enemy —
sexual dysfunction. The
army sent out letters re-
cently to female soldiers notify-
ing them of new sexual aid
programs, including pregnancy
detection and "the service of sex
therapists for those suffering
from difficulties in their sexual
perfoi mance," Yediot Aharonot
The IDF offers these programs
only to women on permanent ser-
vice, not to men or even women
on mandatory service. But it is
enough to give all soldiers hope,
one officer told Yediot Aharonot.
"Maybe now the army will be-
come more liberal with regard to
sexual activities on the bases,
which are now forbidden."

The Ashdod mall, in Southern
Israel, is not your typical shop-
ping center.
For on thing, it is located on
the Mediterranean Sea. For an-
other, it is about to become the
foundation — literally — of four
apartment buildings, which will
be built on top of it.
The development's 120 apart-
ments will feature marble floors,
Jacuzzis and intercoms with tele-
vision monitors.

A Mall With A View

Israel's plans to build a new in-
ternational airport have not ex-
actly taken off.

to suffer noise and pollution from
the airport's operations area re-
cently signed a petition to ground
the project, Yediot Aharonot re-
The airport planners are try-
ing to convince local residents to
support the project because it will
attract business to the area, ac-
cording to Yediot Aharonot.
They say the airport will cre-
ate hundreds of new jobs. But
this may not be enough to off-set
the noise and pollution, Yediot
Aharonot reports.

Making The Cut

High, But Not On Torah

It's not the kind of behavior
you would expect fro n any reli-
gious people, much lei Orthodox
A group of tens of Orthodox
Jews in Israel's most religious
city, Bnai Brak, have been get-
ting high not on studying Torah
or on doing mitzvot. Instead, they
have been gathering in con-
struction sites at night to shoot
heroin and sniff cocaine, accord-
ing to Yediot Aharonot.
To make matters worse, they
have been getting the money to
pay for this by asking people for
donations to such worthy causes
as helping the frail elderly, Yediot
Aharonot reports.

Eliyahu Ben-Shoshan recent-
ly received a notice to serve a
month in an Israel Defense
Forces reserve unit as a driver.
Just one problem — the five-
month-old Eliyahu does not have

Yediot Aharonot.
Eliyahu, who lives in Carmiel
with his parents, doe' like to dri-
