We all pay taxes and we all give 3 years of our lives to the State

July 17, 2012

From Danny Ayalon’s Facebook. I haven’t scrutinized their agenda and compared it with others, so I’m not saying that I’m 100% behind this political party and their idea – but I definitely agree with the principle, and support it 100%. No one who enjoys the benefit of living secure within the borders of the State of Israel should be exempt from helping to protect it. Whether they do it through army service or through caretaking at hospitals, or through serving in fire fighting units is less important. We all give 3 years of our lives to the State, just like we pay taxes.

“Please watch and share our new video stressing the utmost importance of finally equalizing the national burden in Israel before it’s too late. The video is titled “One Citizenship. One Obligation. One Opportunity. One Vote” and was released ahead of the planned vote on Yisrael Beytenu’s IDF, National, or Civilian Service Law Proposal on Wednesday in the Knesset. English subtitles available by clicking the CC button at the base of the screen”

Just watched these two with my wife. Let My People Go was fine. But the other one was not. Mostly because it included a made-up angel-war between God’s angels and Lucifer’s angels. (God would need to “win a war” against Satan? Really? That’s kinda Zarahoustra-religion). Plus, Satan looks just like the Roman god Pan. Horns and tail and stuff. I don’t like when silly unbiblical gimmicks are added. For the Moses story, my only critical remark is that the emphasis is put on the “moral lessons”, and not on the redemptive history and prophecy. But life application of Biblical truths is nevertheless important, and we can add the most important aspect of the Tanach stories ourselves. We will definitelly let the kids see Let My People go. The other one – not so much. Amazing animation, by the.way.
