Inciting hatred and dehumanising others is ev
2. A closed mouth catches no flies!
Moshino ,   Tel Aviv   (07.16.16)
If the reason why you're opening your mouth is to spread baseless hatred and incite by pretending to speak for G.od, so yes, you should be marked and branded. Welcome to and enjoy the 21st century!
3. A very important point to consider
Moshino ,   Tel Aviv   (07.16.16)
If your officer is not ready to be an officer for ALL soldiers, then of course s/he should be kicked out of the Officers' Training School. Either you comply with the rules and regulations or you can go be an officer of the local Beni Akiva charter or another religious youth movement. Oh and did that *offend his feelings*? :)( Poor soldier. Who's the sissy now!?
4. So here's when this whole thing gets hypocritical
Ben ,   Beer Sheva   (07.16.16)
There was a time (back in the 70's and 80's) when the IDF would teach LGBT people were ill. And that was fine. Now that the IDF teaches tolerance and pluralism. Suddenly the teachings of the IDF are against religious principles. Seriously!? When your words do nothing, but promote hatred, then you should certainly crawl back into a cave and keep quiet. It's our world now, beeatches. Suck it up and deal with it (pun intended!).
5. I had no idea there were so many rednecks wearing yarmulkes!
Adele Franklin ,   Haifa   (07.16.16)
What next? Chastity belts in basic training?
6. Double standards
Raphael ,   Netanya   (07.17.16)
Why did the rabbinate oppose the extradition to Australia of Malka Leifer? Malka Leifer is wanted by Victoria Police on 74 counts of sexual abuse, allegedly involving girls at the Adass Israel School in Melbourne where she was head mistress.
7. and the new chief rabbi of the IDF too...
A Jerusalemite ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (07.17.16)
Are we seeing a trend here?
8. Good rabbi reads Torah
Avi ,   Haifa   (07.17.16)
Good, he is real Jew
9. Is there any law against this trash talk?
Avi L.   (07.16.16)
Is there any law against this trash talk?

Are they allowed to say this?

Sue him and the other talebans
10. Poor Levinger
Ephraim ,   Tapuah   (07.17.16)
He is finally realizing you cannot mix Torah and IDF. They are two completely different entities with different values and goals.
11. He is right.You have imported a culture into this land
olim hadashim ,   Tel Aviv   (07.17.16)
which is foreign to the Jewish soul.
12. Bravo
dave ,   safet/phila   (07.17.16)
Intelligent rabbi, ridiculous headline and byline. Yes, respect the the feelings of Abraham, Yitzchak and Yaakov, Sara, Rivka and Leah, not to mention 3340 years of Jewish continuity. YNet is highly offensive.
13. Bigotry
Miche ,   Hod Hasharon   (07.18.16)
So what he teaches is bigotry against statistically 10% of the population who are members of the LBGT community and bigotry against the mainstream Jewish movement in the world - Reform - in the name of a narrow interpretation of Judaism that has exchanged Jewish humanitarian values with the values of landgrab and nationalism,

And this is where our tax dollars go - to an institution whose leader wishes to create intracommunal strife
