2. How can something be historic

if it will never happen? Who in their right mind believes that Torah scholars will enlist or will be jailed for not enlisting? One has to be a real dunce to believe so. The only historic thing will be that Lapid, Bennett and Shaked will be gone as quick as Haman.

own accord because service, whether military or national, will allow them to get out of the sinkhole they are mired in. As more expand their outlooks, the Charedi leadership, which thrives on fear and repression, will lose their hold on the Jewish people. Another concern which will exponentially expand is the sexual abuse of minors rampant in the Charedi community. As this phenomenon becomes more and more obvious (as in the Catholic Church), the hold on these hapless and subservient (to their leaders) people will disintegrate and the Charedi world, as we know it in Israel, will look totally different.

Dan ,   Hadera Israel   (02.21.14)
