Nationalists: 'Stop NIF Indoctrination in IDF'
The young leadership sections of four nationalist parties will cooperate in fighting against IDF seminars that impart controversial political messages to the participants. The seminars are reportedly sponsored by the New Israel Fund.
According to publications last week, the seminars and workshops about "social justice" are directed at reservists, cadets at Officer Training School and combat soldiers in regular service.
Many soldiers complain about the seminars, but the complaints apparently fall on deaf ears, as senior officers fear that their future promotion could be blocked if they come out against the seminars.
The young leadership sections of the four parties have sent letters to the Chief Education Officer and to other officers, co-signed by Knesset Members, asking that the matter be dealt with posthaste.
Liran Cohen of Yisrael Beiteinu's Youth added: "It's absurd that the Education Corps lends a hand to lies and delusions that do not jibe with reality. I have experienced attempted brainwashing under the Education Corps and I will fight to make this phenomenon disappear."
