(Oren Ziv) Quando due settimane fa Hallel Rabin  si presentò davanti al Comitato degli obiettori di coscienza dell’IDF, l’organismo militare che doveva decidere se  rimandarla o meno in prigione per essersi rifiutata di prestare servizio nell’esercito,  si sentì porre una strana domanda: ” Indosserebbe l’uniforme dell’esercito se fosse rosa? ” “Non ho problemi con il colore”, ha risposto, “Ho problemi a indossare un’uniforme dell’esercito, indipendentemente dall’esercito”.

This plea was heard Wednesday in one of the church-like courtrooms of the Supreme Court.
