Sniper's Hide verifies discussants' self-reported rank, though, so I can assure you that the gentlemen in the quoted thread are of the rank specified.
At ArmTech I found this discussion of the IDF's use of supressed .22RF rifles for sniping:
"Ruger 10/22 Suppressed Sniper Rifle
"The need for a Suppressed 0.22 Sniper Rifle rose up when the Intifada (the Palestinian uprising against the Israeli regime in the occupied territories) broke out in 1987. The Israeli security forces needed a weapon with more firepower then the standard riot control rubber/plastic rounds, but at the same time less lethal then the 5.56 M193/M855 rounds of the M16/IMI Galil family of assault rifles. The Ruger 10/22, a 0.22 caliber semi auto sniper rifle (with 10 round rotary magazine), fitted with a X4 day optic, a full length suppressor and a Harris bipod, was selected."

Worldwide, about two-thirds of all snipers are female, though most of them are in developing countries. Russia and Israel are today the only developed countries that recruit women to be snipers. During WWII, sniping was the only combat role available to women in Russia. Stalin was convinced that they make better snipers because they are less prone to posturing. This is also why most guard dogs (in every country) are female.
The Palestinian getting shot in the crotch is not a terrorist, he's a demonstrator. If he were a terrorist, the IDF would kill him.

Is the following quote reckless in the extreme? Then read my 2008 paper about monetary theory:
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
