Quote of the Day

Kever Yosef is a crazy delusion. I have been there many times. It is insane.  Just thinking about IDF soldiers that can get killed in order to secure a group of Haredim who did not even serve in the army.

  -- MK Yair Golan (Meretz), regarding a group entry to Kever Yosef last night that was attacked by local Arabs

yes, the army's role is to secure its citizens, yes, even the one you dont necessarily like and the ones that behave differently. The IDF is supposed to defend all Israelis and all areas Israel lays claim to, including this holy site.

Additionally, having been there many times myself (though not recently), while plenty of the people who go are mainstream Haredim, many of whom likely did not serve, many are Breslav baal teshuvas and Sefardi chozrim who mostly did serve in the army, in addition to many from the "settlements" community of Datiim who mostly serve. So even if he is right, which he isnt, he is identifying the public incorrectly.
