Blog Spotlight

In case you haven't checked them out, JewsInGreen is a Jewish mil-blog. Wisely, they seem to avoid politics and focus on the cultural aspects of Jews in the military.

Also, they gave me my new wallpaper. This was my old one.

It's always annoyed me that the UO community treats the armed forces like a foreign animal. Do they really think that the Jewish kingdoms of yore didn't rely on a standing army to protect it?

I recognize that military service necessarily means violation of some halakha, but in today's age of Shabbos-clock euthanasia machines, I'm sure there are allowances to be found for the men and women who protect us all.
