    religious, young women from North Tel Aviv, from more or less Traditional families, even from small "c" conservative families that have heard stuff, say, from Ima, who would rather forget the two or so years when she was a soldier, or a father that "knows" what commanders do young women while he saw on Reserves. The usual line is that the young women are trying to get "out of their army service" on illiigitimate grounds, when, the fact is they aren't willing to speak up, lest they accused of "making up stories" about things that never happen. Then . . . the media lambastes Haredim for not wanting to serve with women because they are "primitve"--Dayan, Mordechai, as well as some of our otherwise respectable pols, I guess were honorable men, right? Mabye the Haredim have a point when they argue that Zahal is not a place for women. Let the men serve, defend the country, and perhaps Haredim, those who don't have the patience to learn, might be willing to serve in the IDF more than ther fair share of burden quite willingly, too.
