In the meantime, more than 60 active combat reservists, including officers and commanders have already signed a letter that if Yeshiva Har Bracha is out, then so are they.
In their letter to General Ashkenazi and Ehud Barach they write (rough translation):
Many of us have fought in Lebanon and Gaza fulfilling every mission – even if it meant giving our lives.
We learned this fighting spirit from our Rabbis, and from our Hesder Yeshivas we absorbed the message to fight and give our all.
But if the Hesder Yeshivas are kicked out then the message we receive is that the army doesn’t want us either and is forcing us out.
It is because of our Yeshiva education that we did our army service and do our reserve duty. But if the army is kicking our Yeshivas out, then it is with a heavy heart that we must complete the job for the army.
And if there is war, unfortunately we won’t be able to see ourselves on the frontlines in the army that pushed us out.
This is just the beginning. Who is going to be left to fight Barak's upcoming wars with Gaza and Lebanon?
