MK says IDF should not draft gays, cites Torah
Just days after the LGBTQ community was rattled by what it perceived as an anti-gay rant by a member of Knesset, MK Uri Ariel (National Union) on Monday stated that the IDF should not draft gays into its ranks.

Asked by a Knesset Channel reporter whether or not he supported the IDF drafting gay civilians, Ariel said that "If I had to choose I would not draft them." Ariel added that he believes homosexuality "distracts the army from its main task of fighting."
