    conservative small "c" Israelis have reservations about inducting young women in Zahal. If these are the "poster girls" of what is supposed to represent the State of Israel, why should a Haredi, or any other self respecting male Zahal soldier show respect when they are otherwise seving as their "commanidng officer". In the old days, women were treated like matresses by many of male commanding offieers, and in the last few decades, some of those commanders have been put to trial, and other just put to shame. That these young women seem to be "offiering themselves", well . . . Maybe Zahal shoud reconsider it's policy of inducting women altogether, and may find that Haredim will have not problem serving in the Army, and work out arrangements that "share even more than the burden" than the Secularists ever imagined.
