This year brings multiple challenges, but those from outside, also face issues concerning core character of the IDF as militiamen. The main challenge is the public discourse that developed around the issue of equal, or in other words the right to serve.

I call you, headquarters and commanders, putting the values of equality and human dignity by value
Achieving a victory, since the two are intertwined. The only way we succeed.
