    According to Army Radio, which isn't usually very sympathetic to the religious: ?after the Golani Brigade and Bahad-1 Officer Training Base, the religious-Zionist camp has now become an absolute majority in the Israel Air Force?s elite Shaldag unit.? Most of the new cadets in Shaldag also happen to live in Judea and Samaria, the report notes. In fact, among the first religious officers in Shaldag was none other than a son of the head of the National Union party, MK Yaakov Katz (Ketzaleh). http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/135831 and Golani Brigade Goes Religious http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/135401 and Half of IDF's New Combat Officers are Religious http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/123492
