Moshe Feiglin: Mandatory Draft Detrimental to Israel
Wednesday, at 4:30 PM, we will hold the Professional Volunteer Army Caucus in the Knesset. Security experts and politicians from all across the political spectrum will speak at the caucus: from former Meretz MK Musi Raz to Agudat Yisrael MK Rabbi Yisrael Eichler. The security ethos is the founding ethos of the post-Holocaust State of Israel. It is taken advantage of by the elites controlling the draft, who determine who does or does not belong to the Israeli experience. Mandatory draft is severely detrimental to the army’s combat fitness, to Israel’s budget and to the state of human liberty in our country.
