IDF Polls

Is this some kind of joke?

The IDF recently conducted its own opinion poll to find out what Israelis think about the disengagement plan, irking former senior officers concerned about possible politicization within the military.

Possible?

Former senior officers were outraged by the poll, saying it is wrong to use the army’s money to sound out public opinion on a controversial political issue – particularly as this allows the IDF to influence the controversy by choosing whether to release or bury the results.

One thought on “IDF Polls

  1. I think they have every right to asses public opinion through commercial organizations as opposed to other countries where the army itself spies on its own country’s citizens. IMO, and I’ll agree with Assaf’s apprehensiveness, the IDF should not release any results publicly, and no government worker should run to their favourite journalist with a copy either.
