Army Service is About Social Engineering; not About Pikuach
Now it is clear what the real reason for Israeli army reserve
duty always was. Now that the Government has approved the new
reserve law, the Knesset has approved its first reading, and
it is expected to be fully approved by the end of the
calendar year, it is clear what was behind the way things
were done for so many years.
For How Long the Doubt?
Years ago, [a period of] great tension existed between
Germany and the other super powers. Its source lay in German
demands to reconsider the Treaty of Versailles. After the end
of the First World War, the two sides had met in Versailles
to sign a peace treaty which took its name from the location
of its signing.

one whose body and soul personified a true talmid

Politica: Sharon Preparing for Likud Elections
When the media plastered the Likud with corruption charges
before the last Knesset elections, Sharon convened a special
government meeting, announcing that the government would pass
a law requiring the major parties to hold primaries to select
their Knesset lists and authorizing Meir Shetreet to draft
the law. (Like many other pledges the proposal was never
brought before the Knesset; in fact, when a similar law was
proposed the Likud MKs mobilized to defeat it — fearing
the wrath of the Likud Center, of course.)
