It seems you only want to argufy in the face of the obvious.
Ha. Yer describing yerself.
Here's what you said in your first comment to me:
Since almost every Israeli citizen serves...
And here's some relevant information; linked in my last post, but you must have missed it.
Despite a general impression that the majority of Israeli citizens are conscripted, only about 50% of potential conscripts actually serve in the military. Others do not serve for a variety of reasons, including religious study, minority community exemptions, refusing to serve, "low motivation", and a criminal record.
To: caveat emptor
You might notice that “religious studies” is a biggie, and it amounts to a postponement not a waiver.
Sorry, you are still the irrelevant argufier. Once the religious studies postponement is factored out it becomes the 80% mentioned in my reference. So there.
