Re: *chuckles*

Actually, it's the Israeli army prison.

Since Israel is a Jewish state I suppose we can make the assumption ;)

There's a great difference. There're enough non-jews who serve. Anyway, Israel is a Jewish state, yes, but that doesn't make her people "people of the jewish state, and thus - jews".

Not to mention the fact that "Jewish" carries a wealth of different connotations, at least to Israelis. Israel is a secular country, all in all. There are many aspects of Israeli culture that have nothing to do with Judaism, the army being a prime example.
Judaism has enough problems without us attributing it some of the shortcomings of the secular Israeli beaurocratic insensitive inefficient machine that is the army.
