I will not tolerate comments on this blog that disparage or debase the sanctity of Jewish life. Don't mess with me.

Yael appears in The Book of Judges. One of its passages recounts how she single handedly kills Sisera, general of the Canaanite army attacking her people:

"...Yael went out toward Sisera and... he turned aside to her to the tent...she opened a skin of milk, gave him to drink, and covered him.... Yael, wife of Heber, took a tent peg, placed a hammer in her hand, came to him stealthily, and drove the peg into his temple and it went through into the ground...and he died"  (Judges: 4:17-21).
