The two Americans killed in fighting in the Gaza Strip followed in the footsteps of scores of Jews from around the world who have volunteered to fight for Israel. Israel calls them the lone soldiers: They are men and women in the prime of their lives who have left their parents and often comfortable lives behind in places like Sydney, London, Los Angeles and elsewhere to join the IDF, marching in the desert and taking up arms to defend the Jewish state. There are about 2,000 lone soldiers currently serving in the Israeli military.
