IDF joins with Women of the Wall

I just saw this on Facebook:

Breaking News: On Monday morning, Feb 11, 2013 Women of the Wall will be joined by the IDF paratroopers who liberated the Western Wall in 1967. These Israeli heroes overwhelmingly agree that they must stand with Women of the Wall, as we continue to liberate the Kotel! This historic moment is not to be missed!

This should be interesting to see - I wonder what the reaction will be, maybe it will change the image of Women of the Wall so that they seem less an isolated "fringe" group. The original IDF paratroopers that liberated the Wall probably never anticipated that women would not be allowed to wear tallitim at the Wall!
