May we call the present situation of having reached the State of Israel?s ?Robicon? and in the interest of all concerned even far beyond the borders of Israel, this element of religious laws superiority on daily life has to be minimized and to be brought to the daily level of recognizing of supremacy of the State Laws for all its citizens, This would not need complete negation of religious laws but would give them a semi status of an advisory body and source for personal, private observation. Practically spoken the army should cancel this strange mixture of religious studies combined with military duties and ?Yishivot Hesder? special unit for ultra orthodox people. Army chaplains should become a like in other states with mixed religions, an advisory welfare supporting body, including chaplains for all other religions for soldiers serving in IDF. ?One cannot allow to have counter productive laws like, who is recognized as a Jewish and all its present consequences! Of course this views will create a wide and most probably agitative discussion which has to be combined with executing this line of thought to ensure a personal satisfactory human life for everyone within his own family and chosen friends, recognizing that these are private areas which should be preserved. - This merely a framework outlining a possible way out of the present ?cul ? de-sac? of ultimate commander authority in the IDF but of course also would influence all other spheres of Israel?s life provided the army remains a true representative of Israel.
