IDF Command Levels from the Lord of Hosts on Down

givati command levels
Satire from today’s Haaretz concerning the Commander of the Givati Brigade, Col. Ofer Winter.  Note which command level is ranked lowest of the five:

The five command levels for the [IDF] Givati Brigade:

1. the Lord of Hosts

2. Deputy Lord of Hosts

3.  Prophets of Israel

4. IDF Chief Rabbi

5. [IDF] Chief of Staff

Of course, what’s even more ironic about this is that this is not just the command level for one IDF brigade, it’s the command level for the entire army and possibly the entire country, which is rapidly turning into a Jewish political-theocracy.

    This “Winter Fellow”, seems like he lives in a fantasy world. Dangerous thing is, he commands a lot of dangerous hardware. Still, it goes to show large segments of Israeli society are going mad.

    “DEPUTY Lord of Hosts”…? Is this something that I have somehow missed?

      @ James Walley: It’s a play on “Deputy” as a military rank conflating God and army.

    This sort of religious Zionism is a comparatively recent phenomenon. Many of the founders of Zionism were atheists, and they refused point-blank to sign the Declaration of the Establishment of the State of Israel if it mentioned God. Most Orthodox Jews opposed Zionism on the grounds that the Jews should not return to the Land of Israel until led there by the Messiah.

      My sister and I spent two summers of the 1930’s in “Werkdorp Wieringen”, the Netherlands as guests. Werkdorp Wieringen was a sort of super farm where potential Zionists could learn various aspects of agriculture. There were very few religious persons among these Zionists. In fact, the great majority of them were Socialists or Communists.
