This is coolbert:
Once more from Iranian Internet media PressTV:
"Activists call for end to recruitment of Canadian citizens by Israeli army"
"Human rights activists have called for an end to the recruitment of Canadian citizens by the Israeli military, which is against the laws of Canada."
"These activists maintain that this measure by the Israeli army is in violation of the Foreign Enlistment Act, which prohibits the recruitment of Canadian citizens by foreigners."
RECRUITMENT as mentioned in the article not totally and explicitly defined!
Canadian citizens by law are forbidden from joining the military of a foreign nation? That is a new one on me.
DURING THE VIETNAM WAR, MORE CANADIANS SERVED IN THE U.S. MILITARY THAN WERE ACTIVE IN THE CANADIAN ARMED FORCES DURING THE SAME PERIOD!!
I am aware that relatively small numbers of American citizens [Jewish] do volunteer for military service in Israel. This not being illegal under American law as long as the individual does not serve in the capacity of an officer or non-commissioned officer and an oath of allegiance nor sworn?
These Canadians might also be teenage volunteers for a month long program in Israel called Chetz V'keshet. Program an immersion in Hebrew language, Israeli culture, and yes some sort of wearing of the Israeli military uniform and rudimentary weapons and para-military training.
