      Mofaz: No Contradiction between Faith and IDF Service


      Opposition Leader Shaul Mofaz told a gathering of the Nachal Hareidi army unit, Thursday evening in Jerusalem, "I was asked if I am ready to accept hareidi-religious soldiers in the Israel Defense Forces and our response is that we want to induct hareidim."

      The former chief of staff and defense minister added, "Integration of hareidim in the army is a supreme value in the vision of one society. There is no contradiction between faith and service in the IDF."
