Steven, I'm religious and I served in a front line infantry unity. The overwhelming majority of the guys I served with were secular and left wing. In fact, my experience is that the jobnikim held more right wing opinions than the lochamim. Didn't you see how many of the soldiers killed this past summer were kibbutznikim?? You should be ashamed of yourself. Your attacks on the "left" are further splitting our nation and desecrate the memory of all the secular soldiers who fought and died to keep Israel secure. Shame on you. As to clickFOOL - Charadim have been exempt from military service since the founding of the IDF. We've never needed to rely on them in the past and don't need to rely on them now. Don't get your hopes up that their failure to serve will help bring about Israel's destruction.
