Israeli Soldier Punished For Putting Meat And Dairy In The Same Fridge

13

An Israel Defense Forces soldier was confined to an army base for a weekend as punishment for putting dairy and meat products in the same refrigerator.

According to Channel 12 news, he put cheese and cold cuts on the same shelf in a refrigerator on his base.

A Yisrael Beytenu lawmaker on Saturday condemned the army’s punishment of the soldier, warning it could portend further religious strictures on troops.

“Today they forbid putting milk and meat together in the same fridge. Tomorrow they’ll forbid girls from enlisting in the army. In two days we’ll become the army for the defense of Jewish law,” MK Evgeny Sova wrote on Facebook.

“We should stop this quickly,” he added.

  1. i will try to be clear
    overall this has less to do with mixing milk and meat and MORE to to with Discipline
    i get it if you grow up with 1 fridge no big deal you learn to be maybe even more careful
    BUT if you grow up with 2 fridges 1 milk 1 meat it would never ever happen

    i am not judging but guess what an army base has more then one fridge and maybe the fridges are on the opposite sides of the room so what is it then a kosher issue or a discipline issue

    you don’t store flammable material near open flames
    more because you were trained to or its a RULE

    there is a further deeper problem here and that is for GOYIM cold-cuts and cheese go together even alternating on the same plate and they look alike so there is need for stricter separation and in even a minimal Kosher home more diligence
    in the army it is just a rule and part of the discipline

    • Now tell New Yorkers who dangerously cross the street on red lights or on “Don’t Walk” or just wander into traffic like dumb behaimos. Dina deMalchusa Dina. These are the laws you are to obey! We don’t like losing people due to their stupidity!

  2. He was punished for disobeying orders.
    To prevent mix-ups by non-religious kitchen staff, milchigs and fleishigs are supposed to be stored on separate SHELVES. The soldier knew this.

  4. Isn’t Israel fortunate to have all those Russian immigrants who have no clue about Judaism, some of whom are not even Jewish.

    If they are so afraid of anything to do with Yidishkeith, why did they come to Eretz Yisrael. Why not go live in America or Canada and where they could indulge in all their treif practices.

    • All those Russians are afraid to live in Frum areas like Los Angeles or New York because they may become (C”V) Frum!!

    • I’m not Peleg and I even have some strong Zionist inclinations in my head, but this point has to be clarified once and for all;

      The IDF is not the mind of a single person – just like any organization which is run by a democratic government.
      Democracy is an agreement between ideological enemies who agree to fight in a parliament rather than on the streets.
      Therefore, no democracy is always in the best interest of every one of its citizens.
      As a result, in every democratic country the Orthodox Jewish community has some “foes”. And very often, those foes can impact the government by one way or the other.

      Now in regards to the IDF;
      The IDF was strongly impacted throughout the last 70+ years, by both the Frum Zionist and Lehavdil the anti religious communities and organizations. Thus, one soldier is confined for putting Milchig and Fleishig in the same fridge, while his frum college is confined for not participating in exercises together with female soldiers.

      In regards to the Giyus;
      Some secular politicians/activists/military commanders, don’t want the Haredi bays in the army – fearing that more frum yidden in the army will make it even frumer. Some others, do want to draft the Haredi boys, not hiding their intentions that being exposed to the secular world will somewhat cool-off the “extremism” of the future Haredi generation. Some Frum Zionists also seek the draft of Haredi boys, hoping that the Haredi soldiers will help them in their 70+ year struggle, to make the army more appropriate for the Frum soldiers.

  5. Everyone fell for it. This is FAKE NEWS. Had it been real, the official IDF spokesperson would have commented on it. However, we hear nothing from him. This is part of the smear campaign against the religious.
