Yes only 13% of combat troops are religious- representing their current numbers in society as a whole – while 35% of combat officers are religious. And while only 30% of all troops are combat, the overwhelming majority of these are either religious,traditional (Sephardi) Russian immigrants, or from outlying/rural districts. The representation from hiloni TA-Herzliyah among combat troops is in grossly inverse proportion to the area's population. As for my prediction that THE FUTURE is firmly in the hands of the religious, this is indisputable unless the birthrate among hilonim shifts radically in the coming years -- which I would welcome, but which is extremely unlikely. As for the Zionist/Jewish education of secular Tel Aviv youth it is 'al hapanim', unless you know somethign no one else does.
