    Ultra-Orthodox students must be drafted, Israel court rules



    Probably won't hear too much in US but I would imagine the shit is going to hit the fan in Israel although the Court got it right seeing as how the ultra-orthodox want Arabs gone while their percentage of the population is increasing yearly.

    Does this statment make any sense, any sense of all ?

      It does to the Ultra-Orthodox but not to the secular citizens of Israel. And as we have seen, not the Supreme Court of Israel.

        I think I saw where the Army put a C-RAM on the pier also.

        Col, The pier when used in amphib ops would be protected by whatever Navy ships came to the party. And that depends on the size of the operation. From Battalion Landing Team up to Brigade/Division

        • C-RAM will work.

              Yep, currently something like 12% of the population (and rising). And a second important component of the Court's decision was that any Yeshiva that refuses to release its students for national service is to have its State funding terminated. Looks like the hornets nest has been given two very firm kicks.

              If you are emotionally invested in 'believing' something is true you have lost the ability to tell if it is true.

                        As per the title the article states the flights in question are going to Beirut, not Tel Aviv. So unless the the British Government and the MoD have lost their collective minds they are NOT delivering arms or equipment to anti-Israeli militias. If equipment of any kind is being flown in? It's probably medical supplies and other equipment for the use of the Lebanese Army and emergency services with an eye to improving their preparedness for mass casualty events. As for military supplies? The Lebanese Army couldn't hope to prevent a full scale incursion by Israel even if the UK handed over every piece of spare kit it has left (which is almost zero thanks to years of under investment and well Ukraine!).

                        IMO? The Lebanese Army won't be intervening in the event Israel crosses the border to go after after Hezbollah. They don't have the means, aren't deployed to any great extent in southern Lebanon anyway (because they don't want to annoy Hezbollah or challenge its control there) and if the shooting does start in earnest? Will have their hands full just managing a refugee crisis and maintaining civil control in the north. My best guess is that the article is sensationalizing regular military flights being conducted for the purpose of covert diplomatic meetings and the movement of classified assets and information into and out of the country at the behest of the British government and it's allies. So not as alarming as it may appear.
