The following is the response I wrote to the photo of scantily clad women carrying weapons over their shoulders, going around on Facebook. It carried the caption...
This response is a criticism of the Israeli government, Israeli Defense Forces' [IDF] leadership, and and the IDF Rabbinate, and not of the fine men and women who defend our People and our Land (when allowed to do so), and who do not destroy Jewish property and throw Jews out of their homes in our God-given Homeland.
Prompt: ...Why are these women indecent ? They aren't covered up enough for you ?
Response: They most certainly are not covered up enough al pi halakha (according to Jewish Law). But, that's not the point.
The point is that promiscuity in the [Israeli Defense Forces] IDF skyrocketed after women were admitted into mixed units, including combat units.
The point is that when this was implemented, the IDF Chief Rabbinate at the time was silent.
The point is that the Erev Rav controlled government uses sex to water down the already watered down Jewish nature of the army, and to entice young men to throw off their kippoth, so that they can "do what they want," instead of what God wants, and assimilate into the anti-Torah, pro-Western assimilationist, Israeli secular, Erev Rav society, and be much more easily controlled pawns.
There is nothing wrong with a woman carrying a gun. On the contrary, all women in Israel probably should carry a weapon, or at least learn how to turn household items into weapons. Often when a man has his gun license taken away by the guv'mint, the wife having a license means that the family may still have a weapon in the house.
The issue is whether they should dress like whores or not. No, they should not. The question is whether there should be mixed units, mixed tents even. No! There should not be. And for those who keep carrying on about "saving a life," the prevention of gilu'i arawoth (forbidden sexual relations) takes precedence over saving a life.
Furthermore, serving in the army is also about fulfilling the additional misswah of protecting our borders. However, there are other ways of fulfilling this misswah besides being in the IDF. Torah/halakha governs ALL aspects of our lives, including how to run an army, how to fight a war, and how men and women are to relate to one another. This "I'll do want I want" attitude is not a Jewish one, but rather a Western/non-Jewish one.
Because the IDF adheres more to Western/non-Jewish values than to Torah ones, it calls its "Jewishness" into question. It doesn't matter how many Jews serve in it. It is controlled by those with an anti-Jewish agenda.
The issue is also whether rabbis should remain puppets of the guv'mint, much like the "Rabbanim miTa'am" of Czarist Russia. I say that no, they should not.
Jews must finally snap out of it, and wake up to the fact that everyday the numbers of contradictions between the Torah and Israeli Law increase.
Which will you follow?
You must finally decide, because more and more you simply cannot have your cake and eat it, too.
