Ok here are some guidlines about this thread.
This is NOT a discussion about the rights or wrongs of the IDF.
This is ONLY about providing USEFUL information and links to encourage and facilitate persons joining the IDF.
Do NOT post anti - IDF material here please! Start your own thread.
Ok I will start by this link to the IDF.
Please use English where ever possible.
Also as I am probably among those that know the least about the IDF I invite others to contribute positive information about the IDF, how and where to join, age and fitness criteria, types of jobs on offer.
I hold that it is the moral obligation of every man and woman person of Jewish faith, regardless of nationality, to have served in the IDF, with hopefully at least one tour of duty. Every man and woman that says they are a Jew have a moral obligation to have served Israel at the risk of their own lives.
Those persons that for one reason of another are not accepted by the IDF, are deemed in my view to have served, as they have stepped to the mark and have shown they are willing to do their part.
Please only provide USFUL information. I do not want to turn this into a debate. If you are against this, post somewhere else please.
