I happen to agree with him. Arabs should perhaps serve in their own areas but not in Jewish areas. How do we know that an Arab isn't a closet Jihadist ready to turn his weapon on Jewish soldiers in his own unit? It's a real problem, not an imagined one... Like training Afghans in Afghanistan alongside Western soldiers. Ho do we know an Arab in uniform won't turn into a 'Martyr'...? However, I disagree with him about ultra-Orthodox Jews. Wherever they go, women 'disappear'. Israel prides itself on gender equality. With the UO this disappears and we're back in the Middle Ages. They are as bad as Moslems with regard to women. Except that they don't do violence to women, as far as I'm aware, on religious grounds. If you get UO in the Army they will inevitably begin to influence the Army towards gender swegregation and other restrictive practices. This is imho a very bad idea.
