No Sympathy for Bar Refaeli, Israeli Draft Dodger

By Debbie Schlussel

Many have been buzzing about Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli’s claimed “molestation” by security inspectors at an airport, presumably one in the United States.  We’ve all been molested by the TSA at airports, and I’ve had a similar experience to the one she described, which was degrading and disgusting.  But I can’t feel bad for her.  Not even a bit.  That’s because Ms. Refaeli is a draft-dodger, and she shouldn’t be traveling around with the jet-set class.  She should be behind bars for dereliction of duty.


Bar Refaeli: Beautiful Israeli Draft-Dodging Bitch Whines About Being “Violated”

As I’ve noted on this site, Refaeli engaged in a brief sham marriage to a friend in order to skip her service in the Israeli Army–a mandatory two-year service required of every Jewish Israeli citizen.  And not only did she dodge the draft, she bragged about it, saying she didn’t have to do the things the little people do because, hey, she’s a supermodel.  “Celebrities have other needs,” she said.  (Hey, just like draft-dodger Ted Nugent. He needed to rock and she needed to be a model, rather than serve when required by law.) But, unlike her, plenty of Israeli models–even a couple who’ve recently been in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition–have done their time in the IDF.  And they’ve been proud to do so.  Ms. Refaeli is a different story because she apparently doesn’t like Israel or the IDF all that much.

The problem is that Israel selectively enforces its draft, giving confirmation to her selfish statement about the little people.  The Israelis go after those who do not serve or otherwise volunteer, but only if you’re not a celebrity or the kid of someone important.  Israeli Prime Ministers, like Ehud Olmert, have draft-dodging kids who’ve face their crime with impunity.  They’ve moved to the U.S. to pursue left-wing causes and showbiz careers (none to much success).  And they’ve returned to Israel without being arrested or getting so much as a paper cut for skipping their IDF duties.  Refaeli has returned to the country, and nothing has happened to her, either.  So, she knows she can get away with it.

Yet, if you are the average Israeli, aside from it being an offense not to serve in the IDF, it makes life very tough.  Employers will not hire you if you cannot produce evidence that you served (unless you moved to Israel later in life, in which case you need not do so).  The little people all serve.  They find it impossible not to.  And it’s required.

As opposed to leftist skanks like Bar Refaeli, the Israeli soldiers who’ve died in the greatest numbers were religious Jews who came from the much-maligned settlements.  They are the ones who give their life and limb–their blood–so frauds and morally bankrupt cretins like this jet-setting supermodel can travel in and out of Israel at whim and still be free to do so as Jews.

So when I hear Ms. Refaeli whining about how she was “violated” by airport security, my mind is screaming at her to look in the mirror, since she’s committed her own set of violations which are far more disturbing.  Her own set of violations against her fellow Israelis fighting Islamic terrorists every day, while she hangs out with celebrities and parties in London.

Bar Refaeli may be beautiful on the outside (and actually, there are plenty of Israeli women far better-looking than she is).  But on the inside, she’s just an ugly troll as “cute” as the ghost of Yasser Arafat.  Period.

Sometimes traitors wear bikinis and look good in them. But they are still traitors.

Debbie, you are so right. (And, by the way, in your 20s you were also better looking than Bar, and, of course, much smarter.) It’s women like Bar who are the majority of Jewish women in LA.

Occam's Tool on April 20, 2012 at 3:55 pm

What an embarrassment to Israel. G-d bless the ones who are taking up the slack!!!

Hollywood on April 20, 2012 at 4:07 pm

Long ago, celebrities made a great deal of the military service in the United Stetes. These people did not need to be handed draft letters or dragged into induction centers. These celebrities volunteered. It is just the opposite these days. It is surprising that Israel is going through this sort of apathy, since it has not know years, let alone decades of peace.

Worry01 on April 20, 2012 at 4:13 pm

Yes she is beautiful on the outside but poisonous on the inside.

Debbie I want to see you in a bikini like that one. You’ve still got it going on. Be nice and share.

ex mossad on April 20, 2012 at 4:17 pm

Unfortunately, there are now plenty of draft dodges in Israel. Something like over 40% of left wing Tel Aviv youth never serve (some say the number is closer to 60%). They get out on phony mental health deferments.

The extremists in Israel (and settlers are not extremists) who study Torah all day get exemptions. Funny thing is, true Orthodox know that it is a requirement to defend your people, and to work for a living.

Modern orthodox, like Deb says, and those from the settlements have the highest rate of service in the military. Somehow, western newspapers like the Washington Pist think that is some sort of problem. Somehow, I think that is the solution. Now if only the liberals in Tel Aviv and the phoneys Torah buchas would do their duty to Israel..

Jonathan E. Grant on April 20, 2012 at 4:18 pm

    Would you have a link about the stats in Israel? How treacherous it is that the left do nothing more then sit back and reap the benefits of conservates who go out and defend the country. It seems to be the same story everywhere, in every country.

    Lucy on April 21, 2012 at 6:29 pm

I have to agree with ex-Mossad. We are your loyal readers. A bikini shot would reinforce our belief in the Almighty.

Jonathan E. Grant on April 20, 2012 at 4:19 pm

    Bar is an ass. If she can’t figure out the difference between Israel and Uganda as a place to live, she really is a walking lobotomy.

    Well, in 10 years her fortunes will change, and her no doubt fast living will destroy her fortune…

    Occam's Tool on April 20, 2012 at 8:00 pm

I guess as a woman I cannot help but sympathize with the issue of airline violations. You have tried it. She has tried it. I have tried it, and thousands and thousands of women have been violated in a similar fashion. I don’t want to belittle that topic in and of itself. I do, however, share your disgust for a draft dodger and Bar is no exception, celebrity or not. There is a problem with the Israeli system if she is ABLE to avoid her 2 year service to her country. Whenever there are loopholes, certain slimy individuals will find them and take advantage of them. That needs to be changed so it can’t happen. It is a mockery of all the citizens who do their rightful duty. And for her to have to gall to brag about it – well, just disgusting. I just feel you used her legitimate complaint as a springboard to attack a different, albeit much more important issue.

clubsoda on April 20, 2012 at 5:01 pm

I’ve always been partial towards the lovely Esti Ginzberg. If my memory is correct she actually served in the IDF.

J: Great minds think alike b/c Ginzberg was one of those I was talking about. She proudly served, and she’s far better looking than Bar Refaeli. DS

John on April 20, 2012 at 5:30 pm

    Esti Ginzberg also told Bar to get stuffed. I hope my daughter grows up like her, INSIDE as well as the far less important out.

    Occam's Tool on April 20, 2012 at 8:05 pm

    If memory serves me, she was Miss Teen USA before she went back to Israel to enlist in the IDF as a tank instructor. She gave something back to Israel. She has character. Beauty isn’t what the world sees – its what others see inside you. Refaeli will never have that no matter how much popularity and fame she has acquired in life.

    NormanF on April 20, 2012 at 9:09 pm

‘Lindsay Zohan’ strikes again….

Nick Fury on April 20, 2012 at 5:30 pm

Another reason the why Israel is corrupt from the top down. American draft-dodgers, before they were given amnesty, could not enter the U.S. without being arrested. Israel ought to have cracked down on this crap.

Between the draft-dodging double-standard and the lack of a death penalty for murder, Israel is likely to decay from within. Once again, Israel is its own worst enemy.

FrenchKiss on April 20, 2012 at 5:39 pm

BRAVO! And thanks, Debbie, for this.

My initial feelings when I read the story were entirely for her; now I despise her.

She is no better and arguably worse than the creeps that crawl in and around Hollywood, professing to be special but in reality are the scum of the Earth.

Tasmanian Devil on April 20, 2012 at 6:30 pm

Nothing new here. The list of celebrities (and I strongly question whether or not swimsuit models fall into that category) with inflated egos, who have complained about being groped “like common people” at airports is lengthy. Diana Ross’ well publicized temper tantrum from a few years back immediately comes to mind.

Irving on April 20, 2012 at 7:56 pm

She wasn’t railroaded, like Shalom Eisner was, who suffered a broken hand. He wasn’t treated fairly but he obeyed the rules and took his punishment. He’s a far better man than Bar Refaeli will ever be a woman and because he acted with dignity and restraint, his detractors can’t even say what they did to him was justice. That’s why the “little people” in Israel back him.

Refaeli may be beautiful but she’s an insufferable and selfish person despite her wealth and fame. Eisner may not be a good looking man but he submits to discipline and you can tell he’s a patriot even though he’s not a very photogenic guy. Maybe that had something to do with his treatment.

That said, I have no sympathy for Rafaeli and every sympathy for Eisner. Life isn’t fair – but we don’t demand to get unjustified treatment in this life. That’s why draft dodgers I feel, always got something undeserved because others had to bleed and die for them to enjoy what they have and they don’t even appreciate it.

Refaeli, go get lost!

NormanF on April 20, 2012 at 8:47 pm

So SI is just another skin magazine now. Wow, I remember when they used to do sports.

JeffT on April 20, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    @JeffT: I had a subscription to SI for a year. It was a gift. I’d usually look through it. Their coverage of golf was weak and Nascar near-nonexistent, but I’m a Peyton Manning fan and a Yankees fan and every third story was about one of those so it wasn’t too bad there.

    When the “Swimsuit edition” came around though, it went straight in the trash. I’m a dude and interested in dude things, but I don’t need softcore porn in my home. Still don’t know why it was called “Swimsuit edition.” I saw the model on the cover… didn’t see any sign of a swimsuit…

    Brian R. on April 20, 2012 at 10:20 pm

My first instinct was indifference, as I don’t believe women should serve in the military at any point anywhere. Nevertheless as I understand the long held requirement and the rationale behind it as Israel is a constantly threatened state wherein every individual needs to be prepared to defend themselves, I was inclined toward your opinion in this article, and indeed you are right. This isn’t about gender preference, and that was never part of Bar’s decision to dodge, I’m sure. It is about the arrogance of the leftist elites and their consistent belief that they are exempt from what goes for everybody else. Ooze through the loopholes and just make certain to establish the right connections so that you are elite enough to avoid the repercussions of your immoral, illegal betrayal of expectation… disgusting.

And I don’t really follow fashion or models, but I have seen Esti Ginzburg, and agree with the assessment of her. Far prettier, and far more interesting. Only time I’ve ever heard of this Rafaeli woman before is with constant media attention-seeking due to some relationship with that slime Leo DiCaprio. Can’t say that I’ve heard of any similar action from Ginzburg.

Brian R. on April 20, 2012 at 10:14 pm

A ‘nice Jewish girl’ whose claim to fame is flaunting her de-haired pubic area….hmmm….recent press on the Bar has not been favourable, classifying her as a one trick pony expression of the vacuous variety. Time for her to hang up the thong and find a real man before she goes past her sell-by-date.

Eyes Wide Open on April 21, 2012 at 6:04 am

I might crucified by the women readership and some of the men for saying this, but after her comments about “only little people do this and that” and she excludes herself from any hard duty, I say grope away you TSA pervs! This is the kind of women I despised no matter how physically attractive they are. I believe this is just a small comeupance for her avoiding the draft and yet having other sacrifice life and limb so she can avoid it, BRAGGED ABOUT IT, and still want benefits of an Israeli citizenship. I in reality do not like women to be groped but it is hard not to say it to an attention whore like this who believes her model status is something for us little people to behold and she should be given the royal treatment everywhere she goes. I am too ticked off to continue writing because Debbie did bring up an interesting point of the Israeli government doing selective prosecution for draft dodgers. I wonder if this did not contribute in a way that princess mentality that she can do anything she please and get anything she wants.

Mario on April 21, 2012 at 7:27 am

I know this is off the subject of your post, but I do not like being patted-down by a man. As a prison guard, some 28 years ago, fellow trainees got to practice on me. I don’t like my Nederlands being handled by a doctor, let alone some stranger. I wish we could choose the sex of the person that frisks us. I think I might enjoy a hererosexual woman frisking me….maybe even a bit too much!!!

Visteo on April 21, 2012 at 11:18 am

Women should not be forced to serve as soldiers in any country ,I am speaking as a former U.S Marine!

Tom Dooley on April 21, 2012 at 12:42 pm

The Law is the Law. If she was supposed to serve, then she should have served. Rather than beating it to the USA, however, it would have been more appropriate for her to skip off to Canada per Vietnam tradition.

I also know that if a person is more qualified to be a “desk jockey” as a linguist or whatever, that person need not shoulder a rifle and stand guard on the border. I was a linguist in the military during a time when the only way I could have been put in infantry was to royally mess up, somehow. Become a failure… However, this is not my way. Therefore, if Refaeli had wanted to be a good citizen, she could have done so at the cost of two years of her life and still be young enough to proceed with her career afterward.

I’m reminded of Elvis Presley. He served his military duty and was applauded for it. It actually enhanced his career. I also would have a much higher respect for her and anyone like Refaeli if she had serve her time in military duty.

If she actually refused to do it for no plausible (physical/mental) reason, I would wonder why Israel does not rescind her Israeli citizenship and cancel her passport. This could be a good example for others who question the need to serve the country.

NoCrud on April 21, 2012 at 1:47 pm

There are many, many Hollywood movie stars who volunteered for service in WW2 and became some of America’s most notable heroes. You can say they were the first of the Heavy Medal people in Hollywood, some retiring later as Generals or higher in the reserve forces. Going to the military did not hurt them. In fact, I suspect it made much better people of them and actually enhanced their later abilities.

What current American movie star has a military background? Has the tradition of service to the country by Hollywood stars been relegated to World Wars only? This is an area ripe for investigation and report. Loyalty and Patriotism are words worthy of high regard but is this all that they are these days?

Concepts of the love for home and family must also include a person’s country if any degree of tangible moral fiber is to be realized.

NoCrud on April 21, 2012 at 2:03 pm

I agree with the posters who mentioned you should give us a dream and pose in a bikini….give us this. I think DeCaprio “dated” Bar Refali….know nothing about her, except this. and I don’t like her ‘tude.

Steve Epps on April 21, 2012 at 6:06 pm

Bar who?

The only Bar I would entertain would be one with am awesome selection of single-malts.

But since I don’t drink anymore, MEH!

The Reverend Jacques on April 21, 2012 at 9:57 pm

Bar Refaeli doesn’t have anything to do with being left-wing.

She has skipped army service for carrier “needs” and she could have left-wing or right-wing politically and in doesn’t matter.

Many Israeli origin residents of the US holds right-wings political views and consider themselves enthusiastic Zionists although they have chosen not to live in the state of Israel regardless of their “support”.

Moreover, not only religious Jews have died in Israeli wars, they are not even the majority. Many “lefits skanks” from Kibbutzim, Arab Druze who has been “blood allies” with Israel, cities residents and so on.

I don’t have any sympathy for Bar Refaeli either but link draft dodging with political view is a mistake.

An Israeli Zionist and leftist who served in the Israeli army (regular and reserves), and lives in Israel.

Ran on April 22, 2012 at 2:36 am

To be honest, I’ve never been molested by TSA workers. I HAVE had a belt stolen and flown back to Israel worried that my jeans would fall off.

Miranda Rose Smith on April 22, 2012 at 4:51 am

The Israeli draft dodgers are fools along with being cowards. Israel is the size of New Jersey and surrounded by enemies who have attacked before MULTIPLE times !!! The Arabs teach their young from their birth that Israel must be destroyed and all Jews killed.
If the Arabs attack, there will be NO non-combatants. You either fight or you are DEAD. So WHY would you not want to spend two years and learn how to defend yourself and your country ??

jimmyPx on April 22, 2012 at 8:07 am

having served in viet nam i have no use for draft dogers of any stripe when that creep carter gave amnesty to them i knew he would be a one term traitor.carter hates israel on behalf of the saudis who gave him money so he would not loose the peanut farm.i find draft dogers to be cowards.

BRUCE on April 22, 2012 at 5:18 pm

Draft doggers of ALL stripes deserve condemnation. My Dad had much love for the long haired hippy scumbags who spit on him and called him a baby killer when he came back from Vietnam. Bar is nothing but a coward who will get by on her looks alone because she seems not to be too bright. Let’s see how this vapid dumbass will turn out when her looks start to fade. Ron White was right when he said that you can’t fix stupid. I have to agree with other posters. I looked up Esti Ginzburg. Not only is she prettier that Bar she seems to be a more thoughtful person who did her duty and understands military service. My hat’s off to her.

Ken b on April 23, 2012 at 8:39 am

Molested by the TSA. I don’t feel I’m getting my money’s worth when I fly if I don’t get groped. Sometimes I go the airport just to get groped! -)

myother on April 26, 2012 at 12:56 pm

you’re being generous calling this one a “supermodel” Debbie. I hardly call a girl who models nothing but bikinis and anaymous catalogs no one has ever heard about, a supermodel. Linda Evangelista would be appalled. She is merely a draft dodging panty pusher, famous for dating Leonardo Dicaprio. that is all.

getoveryourself on May 4, 2012 at 1:23 pm

Just because the draft is a law doesn’t make it right.

Lynn on July 16, 2012 at 6:53 pm

Just because someone else got away with it(Ehud Olmerts Kids) does not mean everyone should get a free pass. It is disgusting and will only get worse if they do not punish these people.

M Z on March 18, 2013 at 10:02 am

So, let me get this right. If you are a “draft dodger” then it’s OK if you’re molested? If you believe that rubbish, then you’re an even bigger idiot than this article makes you sound. Nobody should have to suffer molestation. Not because you consider them a criminal (even though they actually stayed within the law), and not in the name of the poor parody of security that is the TSA.

Rachel on May 18, 2013 at 5:11 am

Jimmy px: “If the Arabs attack, there will be NO non-combatants. You either fight or you are DEAD.”

We’re talking about a country that drafts Jewish girls, but not Arab boys. That alone tells you all you need to know about the threat posed by “armies” of Arab “men”. You saw how Lynndie England dealt with them.

Reg on June 5, 2014 at 6:26 pm

The United of America did away with the draft
Israel is now like a dictaroship. If someone
does not to serve they should not have to.
If there was a war than I agree it should be
mandatory. In todays wars you dont even need
soldiers. You need a lot of fighter pilots
The best thing to do before they get drafted is
leave the country.
