    The army REJECTS lots of potential recruits and then calls them DRAFT DODGERS. The plain truth is that the government does not have the additional one billion shekels of tax revenue that would be required to clothe, feed and train these 25% that the army rejects. So, for all of you out there that demand that EVERYONE serve, are you willing to cough up the additional TAXES from your pay check to pay for it???? What altered state of reality do you people live in? By the way, I agree that anyone who doesn't serve in the fighting army should be required to do at least 2 years of national service, whether Haredi, Chiloni or somewhere in between. My daughter will be starting her second year of Sherut Leumi at Sh'are Tzedek in Jerusalem. They have 150 girls working there for about 5 shekels per hour. If the hospital had to hire real employees to do the work that these girls do, it would add at least 7 million shekels to the annual payroll !!!

Senator Bernie Sanders
Bernie Sanders is smart to keep his mouth shut about Israel

The U.S. presidential candidate has the Democratic progressive vote in his pocket and is wise not to reveal that, on the Middle East, he stands more to the right than his fans would like him to.
