Bar Rafaeli, anti-Zionist?

Well she may not have the same anti-Zio chops as Marek Edelman, but let's give credit where credit is due. Israeli supermodel Bar Rafaeli is under fire from fellow Israeli model and IDF private Esti Ginzburg. Rafaeli, it seems, is a draft dodger, whilst Ginzburg is a proud soldier. "IDF service is a must," declares Ginzburg. "Service is a duty, not a choice." (Anyone seen Starship Troopers? "Service guarantees citizenship!!"). Anyhow the YNet article in which Esti disses Bar links to this two-year old interview with Rafaeli which includes these bon mots:

“I really wanted to serve in the IDF, but I don’t regret not enlisting, because it paid off big time,” she said. “That’s just the way it is, celebrities have other needs. I hope my case has influenced the army.

“Israel or Uganda, what difference does it make? It makes no difference to me. Why is it good to die for our country? What, isn’t it better to live in New York? Why should 18-year-old kids have to die? It’s dumb that people have to die so that I can live in Israel,” Refaeli added.

Bar: it's definitely better here in the Big Apple. We agree with you, Jews don't need frontieres. Come join us in the galut!
