How can you possibly compare serving in the IDF to being in the Ukrainian Army?!

The IDF provides kosher food and has frum soldiers etc. It can’t be compared to ukraine’s army.

Aliya?? No!!

You can live in Israel without making aliya. The only difference is that you cannot vote. For the rest you have many more possibilities and financial advances in Israel as a student or tourist than as a toshav or ezrach.

Even though the two sides may be enemies, I would like to think that, nevertheless, both sides are normal people. Okay, one side may be more normal then the other, but, still normal enough that we can apply a famous military dictum: “nuclear weapons actually brings peace to the world because, if they know you have nuclear weapons, who wants to start a war… Read more »
