What are paras?
I've always felt that the IDF is either the most kickass organization around, or the structure of Arab culture/governments prevents them from being able to engage the IDF in a meaningful fashion.
I had known a few Israeli fighter pilots and that's where I first learned the importance of Masada, and there was also a made for TV movie "Masada" some time back.
I understand that the ramp that the Romans built is still there.

My graduation ceremony of high school was at Massada.
We arrived to the site at midnight, watched the light-and-sound show, then climbed all the way to Massada itself and reached the top when the sun rose out of the Dead Sea.
It was amazing.
