Yehudah Meshi Zahav's son joining Israeli Army


You have probably already read about it in the news: Yehudah Meshi Zahav's son Ariel became a Golani soldier. Golani is a combat unit and part of the "Zionist" Israeli army. 

The news didn't really surprise me but last night, when I was at friends in Mea Shearim for dinner, no one wanted to believe me that Meshi Zahav also went to the Tekes (official oath of enlistment) of his son, taking place at the Kotel (Western Wall) in Jerusalem. My Mea Shearim friends said that they do believe that Ariel Zahav joined the army but not that Meshi went to the swearing at the Kotel. However, Israeli papers claim so and Meshi Zahav himself gave an interview:

Ariel Zahav said that he always wanted to join the army and when he finally did so, he went to the Nachal Ha'Charedi first but was disappointed. Years ago, when the Nachal unit was founded, it consisted of Haredim only but, in the course of the time, more and more national religious Jew got accepted destroying the haredi character. Today the so - called Nachal Ha'Charedi is not a haredi unit anymore and when Ariel Zahav saw the soldiers modern behaviour, he preferred switching to Golani.
