Quote of the Day

In a democratic country we cannot agree with someone saying "I will not go to the army because I do not like the way the government functions", this is crossing a red line

  -- Minister of Jerusalem and of Jewish Affairs Meir Porush, when asked about the issue of some reservists threatening to not appear for duty

Porush might be right on the money, but the irony of him saying this while pushing an agenda (and regularly threatening to collapse governments that do not go along with it) to exempt tens, or maybe hundreds, of thousands of people from army service is rich.

  2. Maybe he's talking about reservists who didn't offer to instead go to learn in a yeshiva that day? (Yes, I'm joking.)

  3. Well, to be fair, Porush and his ilk do not refuse to serve because they're unhappy with how the government functions. They're actually very happy with how the government functions. They're not happy with the very *existence* of the State.

    1. That they don't appreciate the simple fact that they wouldn't have their government if there wasn't a state is their problem.
