Rabbinical courts to stop automatically placing financial burden on divorced fathers.02:39 02.12.15 | 0 comments
You are right and wrong: as an American, my Israeli friends had to explain the 'Shalit phenomenon' and guaranteed return to me. However, the US also had mandatory draft not so long ago--no one went after John McCain nor any other soldiers caught by Viet Cong and left in prisons. They were no less our 'children', but there is a different set of beliefs because US wars were fought on foreign soil(among other things). Israel has a different history and fights 'at home', and so promises parents/soldiers that no one will ever be abandoned. Given time/change, there is need for Israel to re-evaluate its contract with Israelis...can this promise be kept? Will it?
