A piece that could have been interesting, but descended into useless generalizations. Israel Harel's connection between actors, film directors, academics, and draft dodging is ludicrous, unless perhaps he knows that the majority of Tel Aviv's eligible soldiers belong to these professions, or he has figures proving that these professions are less likely to serve in the army across the country. Just as meaningless is the catch phrase "secular haredi". We are all aware of the problem. Let's at least discuss it intelligently and without bias.
