Kfir~Think Camouflaged!

The youngest Infantry Corps brigade in the Israel Defense Forces, the Kfir (Young Lions) are known as the camouflaged brigade. 

According to the IDF, a “Camouflaged” soldier is “a fiery combat soldier, who doesn’t give up, and who follows his commanders.” They are specialists in high profile counter-terror operations, arrests of terrorists, patrols, manning checkpoints and regular security activities. You can read the full story at Arutz 7.

A Friday-night guest of mine, a young man who climbed high in the Israeli airforce and qualified as a pilot, quit the airforce, to the dismay of his peers and superiors and family. But his family changed their minds when he told them the reason - he felt they were nurturing a chip on their shoulders, feeling they outranked other "lesser" brigades. He felt this to be at least hateful, at best not loving. He quit and became a chassid!

I remember the same pretentious snobbish attitudes among Israeli doctors, who thought they were a cut higher than common folk. What rubbish!

That's why the Maskilim movement deteriorated and today hardly exists, and why chassidism prevailed and surges forward, as a jaugernaut that will usher in Moshiach and his era.

So let's not say or imply that one Israeli soldier is any better than another, or never gives up whereas the other would - whatever force he fights in. It's just plain foolish because bravery can come from any quarter - at the right time. Don't forget, we are Jews fighting for our lives and land. This alone provides the highest rank to every fighting man.

Israel, Jerusalem, Judaism, Zionism, Middle East, Aliyah, Conversion, and everything else that pops up
