this AP account that the IDF has set aside the 11-day disciplinary sentence imposed on a soldier for eating a ham sandwich in violation of regulations:
"We were wrong. The IDF (Israel Defense Forces) will continue to keep kosher on one hand, but will not probe a soldier's sandwich on the other," military spokesman Brig. Gen. Motti Almoz wrote on Facebook. "There are tensions in Israeli society and there are different stances and opinions. There is room for everyone in the IDF."Phew. That was a close call.
