Hey, Yossi, contrary to your comments the vast majority of the youth who excitedly anticipate their military service are the religious ones, because they believe in God and understand what they are protecting. Most of the rest here would rather not even be here. How many Ramat-Aviv kids are officers today? (Can you even find Olmert's and Rabin's descendants here?) How many of the Russians complain bitterly about defending Jews outside of the big cities? They'd prefer to be in NYC or LA. Seems all you really want to do is whittle the armed forces down to mostly religious kids, so that when they are maimed or killed by your handcuffing policies of appeasement you will have achieved your other goal - removing the religious community. How thoughtful.
