Moshe Feiglin Calls on Chief of Staff to Back His Proposal for Volunteer Professional IDF

"I endorse Chief of Staff Benny Gantz for his statement today that "we need a small and smart army." I call upon him to take one more step and to add his weight to my proposal to transform the IDF into a professional volunteer army. This step will make the army more efficient, will save our country money and will solve - once and for all - the conflict raging between the Jews over drafting those people who are not interested in joining the army. On the 3rd of Tamuz (June 11th) the Knesset Caucus for a Professional Army, to be chaired by yours truly, will hold its first meeting. We will be examining the different aspects of adapting the army to a volunteer structure and the methods to advance this proposal."
