Just tonight at the confused "Israel Democracy Institute" and broadcast on Kol Yisrael, there were calls for dragging more Israeli teenage girls into military service, even though the IDF doesn't really have much use for them. At the same time, Israeli militant secularists are trying to drag more male strictly religiously observant Jewish students into the Army - and is demanding that they be mixed with the bored girls such as those posing in the photo. (Separating the sexes in the IDF was announced tonight to be a threat to "democracy". Seriously.) The IDF doesn't have much use for these Haredi guys, either. So maybe the Haredim were right after all. It isn't about "sharing burdens" but is really about forcing religious young men to listen to women singing and who knows what else. Godless Communism rises again in Israel. How pathetic.
