    Typical religious stupidity and bigotry

    The only good use of a chief rabbi is put him under your tank tracks to get some grip.

    That’s pretty much the only way a chief fundamentalist could get a grip.

    How disgusting that he’d say such a thing only a week after a homophobic massacre. Don’t these bottom-feeders ever get tired of being sickeningly evil?

  5. Maybe he’d like to complain to the families of the gay people killed in Tel Aviv, many of whom presumably had to carry out their national service in the Israeli military.

    Ah! I forgot that Israel supports the barbaric practice of national military service! To hold opinions like these when LGBT people are FORCED into the military is just utterly vile.

    I don’t know how any country which discriminates against its own people thinks it has the right to force them to murder (or facilitate murder) in its name.

    Pumpkin Pie,
    Isrealis have discriminated against Isrealis since the 1960s that I know of. So, what can we expect from them? To be an outed Gay cannot be easy. Chief Rabbi’s carry a lot of clout still, but, gradually they seem to be losing it!

    The sooner the better, Brian!

  9. ‘… to complain that the features in Bamahane were not appropriate.’ Not appropriate?! That a magazine recognises that soldiers can be gay?

    You’d think he’d be happy that he has another deeply religious Jew in the forces, rather than complaining about it.

    and yet he’s happy that an entire tranche of healthy young men get out of military service because they’re religious scholars: ie they are being protected by filthy queers!
