Deputy transportation minister slams IDF conscientious objectors

September 13, 2014 20:42

Deputy Transportation Minister Tzipi Hotovely said on Saturday that IDF soldiers’ refusing of orders is a "social explosives belt that reflects moral bankruptcy of the education system."

"Officers who could compare Israeli intelligence-gathering to the German Stasi, which spies on its own citizens and not terrorists are twisting history and do not deserve to serve in the most moral country in the world," she posited.  

Hotovely called for IDF chief of staff Benny Gantz to remove them from service immediately and the Israeli Left to reflect on how it led young people to refuse to defend their own people.
