Rabbi Melamed may state political protest in army is wrong

Rabbi Melamed may state

Har Bracha Yeshiva head Rabbi Eliezer Melamed, who is at the center of the recent IDF insubordination storm, is mulling a compromise proposed by some of his colleagues, according to which he would sign a statement declaring political protest in the military to be wrong, Israel Radio reported on Wednesday night. If Melamed signs such a statement, it may lead Defense Minister Ehud Barak to reverse his Sunday night decision to remove the Har Bracha Yeshiva from the roster of hesder yeshivot. Barak made the decision to sever all ties with the yeshiva after Melamed repeatedly expressed support for insubordination in the military and failed to attend a hearing conducted by the defense minister.
