Bar Refaeli, Draft Dodger?
Will Bar Refaeli be toting a rifle in defense of her homeland soon?
E! Online reports that the Israeli-born model and Leonardo DiCaprio squeeze is coming under fire from retired Israeli Major-General Elezar Stern for accepting an exemption from Israel’s mandatory military service.
In a speech denouncing the Tal Law that exempts yeshiva students from military service, Stern called for a boycott of companies that employ Refaeli “ever since they decided to put a draft-dodger on their products—external beauty overpowering internal beauty.”
“I called the companies and the managers of those companies, and they told me ‘that’s what the youths like,'” Stern announced. “I told them our job is to stress what the youths should like, not what they like now.”
Hold on there, pal; you can have our copy of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue when you pry it from our cold, dead hands.
