Argument: Military service gives youth great responsibilities
- Debate: Mandatory military service - pro argument.
Ari Bussel. "Mandatory military service works in Israel." News Blaze. November 26, 2009: "After completing the matriculation exams, a young person, fresh out of high school, would undergo exams and screening, go through boot camp, and start the most influential period of one's life. These soldiers and their commanders are entrusted with the safety and security of the Jewish Homeland. They carry out the policies of the Israeli government. Whatever the composition of the ruling coalition, the military is there to execute its decisions, with the goal of defending the Jewish State."
