Orthodox Jews protest about conscription.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Orthodox Jews protest turns violent

    I knew they had conscription in Israel, but I didn't know it only applied to secular men and women.
    People of 'the faith' are exempt apparently....for the moment anyway.

  2. Link doesn't seem to work
  3. Fixed it now............sorry !
  4. Worked for me and looking at the photo is it a spectator sport and is that the Western (wailing) wall behind the protagonists?
  5. I wonder if they would have the same attitude if the Germans were coming.
  6. Thanks for correcting the link Flag :)

    I think in practice, even if they do change the law it's not going to make a big difference to the number of people who serve...apparently only about 50% of potentials actually serve, and many duck out under medical reasons, 'low motivation' or just refusing to serve. At present they are excluded under a law allowing religious study as a reason for exeption, but if people can avoid serving simply by refusing to do the training then I don't see how much difference changing this law would make.
