Israeli non-issue of bayonets to save money

Maalox

The IDF, including their semi-disheveled and semi-slovenly honour guard, is the only army in the world not to issue bayonets, to save on the shekels.

The Tavor isn't even made with a lug to fit a bayonet.

For today's Independence Day, they decided for the first time to issue some British Mandate bayonets for their honour guard's Vietnam era M16s to make them look a bit more menacing, as Arabs and Iranians seem utterly unafraid of them.





When their Chief of Staff was asked why they don't issue bayonets or give any knife training, he said "it's not Jewish!" and "we Israelis fight with our trigger fingers!"
 
It’s only the Germans that don’t like it up ‘em. The Arabs love it, especially from young boys.

Not British bayonets.

In fact they look like M16 bayonets on M16 rifles.

Not sure what the purpose of your post is, if any?

Because they kill their enemies way before it would be needed.

Semi-disheveled and semi-slovenly troops who take no shite and kill their enemies without a fukking debate in parliament from the opposition party’s leader, who may or might not be a communist?

Proof that marching up and down in shiny boots and red coats actually belongs in the 1800s

So long as their enemies are under 14 and armed with nothing more dangerous than a pointy stone, obviously.

Israel’s Second Lebanon War remains a resounding failure

Not an M16 bayonet. The original bayonet for the M16 was the M7 Bayonet, now they issue the M9 bayonet.
I think either the M7 or the M9 also fit the lugs on the M4A1

They actually look like the old M7 bayonet that the US phased out in the mid-1980s.
Yes, have to agree with that.
Parallel edges to the blade and a convex curve on the handle/scales.

Edit.
Wiki (yes, I know) also says that the M7 was made in Isreal, as well as the USA and other countries.
