Haredim that do serve in the IDF function very well thank you very much, in fact, were you to ask some commanders, they would like more solidiers like them, as disciplined as capable of understanding what a Jewish solideir is. Mehadrin in not a problem-just make it avaialble. Prayers, they manage very well, in fact, there are Hasididm that are known for the speed when they pray anyway What might be a problem is when they want to understand "why" they have to do something when, according to what they see on the ground, or on the map, or what seems logical is not being done, or . . . might be in violation of the Army rules by a commander that wants to cut corners. If that is a problem, than it seems what we read about the issues that vex the upper echelons seem to be as endemic in the lower elchelons, and the Haredim aren't willng to just "let that go", either.
