    As a non jew , but a strong supporter of Israeal, it is no secret that all jews consider them selves the "chosen People" , I have no problem with that what so ever, every religion considers them selves as "chosen". In regards to the Haredi resisting military service to their country reeks of the stench that in Israel , some of the" chosen people" have decided they are more "chosen" than others! This has got to stop, and stop now! The Haredi enjoy the same rights and freedoms of those that serve, and should pulling their weight! They are not forced to serve in Combat roles, there are plenty of vacancies in support services, but they have to get off their "behinds" and lend support ,rather than hide behind a religious belief, in order to milk the Israeli government of social service benefits, and do nothing in return as a form of payback!
