  1. A dark milestone in the history of the state of Israel, the IDF and the IAF – a steep step in weakening the IAF, IDF and the safety and security of the state. This is an unexplained trend lately, among those to whom the main and utmost interest should be the safety and security of the state without the slightest discount and compromise.

  2. To the first 2 posters: This site was meant for chareidim – including chareidi men, many/most of which observe the lav in the Torah, the TORAH LAW, of “velo sasuru achrei levavchem…” with utmost importance. Thus, whenever possible, Matzav tries not to include pictures of women.

  3. Not at all unrelated. The picture is of the individual who made the appointment. Read the caption and the article before going to the default, Torah-observant media bashing, mode.
