    Greetings from Brisbane Australia I have been a Zionist for 40 years and proud of it ! I have served for 10 of those years in the Australian Army. A lot of Non Jewish Australian Zionists are appalled at the Ultra Orthodox Haredi who will not defend the State of Israel. Yet on the other hand, they take whatever they can get for free, and they flatly refuse to be productive, let alone serve their country. These are the sort that let others die whilst they sit on their backsides, and vomit verbal nonsense I believe that Civilian Nataional Disciplined Service, is an excellent idea. Those Haredi who refuse even this requirement should be locked up amongst the Arab terroists. So the alternative is simple either co-operation and teamwork or Jail, Its in your Vital National Intersets. I sincerely appologise for any offence given but its the Truth. Regards and Respects from 1 Australian Zionist.
