    It is interesting that the interviewee is of the opinion that it is the fault of Netanyahu, but not the fault of those who protested against his proposed reforms.  Netanyahu did not intentionally weaken the military readiness of Israel, it was the protestors who decided to weaken the country by refusing military responsibilities.
