Potential Religious Chief of Staff Promoted to Shomron Commander

Leftists are scared out of their pants by the success of religious soldiers in fighting for their country.

After Kalper completed his officers’ course, he rapidly moved up in the ranks, and soldier noted that he is a hard worker who “almost never sleeps.”

The IDF has overgone a dramatic change in the past two decades since the beginning of the “mechina” religious pre-army Torah academies.

The percentage of religious officers is far greater than the percentage of regular religious soldiers, reflecting the determination and beliefs of yeshiva and Mechina graduates.

Their observance of Jewish law within the confines of combat situations has driven leftists up a tree because it is another clear sign that the long-time leftist power base is crumbling due to the intellectual and ideological bankruptcy of the old liberal guard.

  1. Well written…and there is a mishna which is used by physicians when dealing with abortion….it is called Rodef…when someone is chasing you to cause you harm….you have a right…if not a duty to stop them…and if ti means killing them because they are coming to kill you….DO IT! Jews are the only "Nation" that is required to "turn the other cheek" and let themselves be killed! NO this Jew…and thank G-d not Col. Kalper!

  2. Looks like Col. Kalper is an excellent, if not superb, candidate for IDF Chief of Staff!

  3. His family must be very proud. I am.

  4. Carlos Font says:

    Go get 'em, Col. Kalper! As an ex-military man (fighter pilot) this kind of decision makes my heart feel good.

  5. GOD BLESS YOU!!! KOL AKAVOD
