It is about time!! The Torah and the Tanakh give important insights as to how the Haredi should approach service to Israel. How ALL men should be giving their time to that service is clearly stated. What was good for Israel the first time around should be equally valid today. HaShem never changes!! The degree to which an orthodox man serves Israel should be proportionate to how much he actally values the privilege of living in Israel. With privilege comes responsibility!!
