Daughter of Mossad Chief: I Refuse to Enlist in the Israeli Military
I find this to be a very interesting trend. And aside from the Israeli/Palestinian issues, there is another problem, namely, the very fact that women are recruited and conscripted for military service in Israel. I believe that when a country drafts women into the military, it is no longer a civilized nation. So I support the objections of these young men and women objectors, and add that for the women they have a second, and more basic, ground of objection, whether they realize it or not. Unfortunately, they probably do not realize it, for feminism (that is, the war against the essential dignity of a woman's femininity) is so ingrained and institutionalized in the culture that it will take a major cultural shift, over time, for it to be displaced.
