Kol ha-Kavod to the Knitted Kippa!
No, I'm not referring to Srugim (for a change). I am, rather, referring to the dramatically high proportion of religious young men who fought (and, לא עלינו, paid the ultimate price) in order to defend us from the Hamas scourge. While the Leftists wringed their hands and ignored the plight of the residents of the periphery, it was the sons of that periphery (who are overwhelmingly observant or traditional), along with the National Religious soldiers who bore the prunt of the fighting. (See Matthew Wagner's article in today's Jerusalem Post.)
