Bar Refaeli attacks Israeli Press
and confirms she draft dodged


Model Criticizes Paparazzi in Israel

JERUSALEM (AP) — After Leonardo DiCaprio's visit earlier this year resulted in a scuffle with journalists, Bar Refaeli says she will no longer bring her famous friends to Israel.

The Israeli media have closely followed the 22-year-old supermodel and DiCaprio with a hint of pride that a local girl snagged an A-list Hollywood beau.

When Refaeli brought DiCaprio to Israel in March, the couple created a paparazzi storm. After eluding journalists for days, they were met by a group of waiting photographers in Jerusalem. Their bodyguards scuffled with photographers, punching some and damaging equipment.

"I won't bring anyone famous to Israel because there is a chutzpah here that you won't see anywhere else," Refaeli said in comments published Tuesday in the Yediot Ahronot daily.

Refaeli also said she has no regrets about dodging mandatory military service and announced that she's moving to Los Angeles.

"I don't regret not having been drafted into the army, because I made out big," Refaeli said.

The newspaper said the full interview would be published Wednesday.

While military service has historically been a rite of passage in Israel, a growing number of youths, including several prominent celebrities, have figured out ways to avoid it.

DiCaprio, 32, has received Oscar nominations for his roles in "What's Eating Gilbert Grape," "The Aviator" and "Blood Diamond."

He and Refaeli have been romantically linked for about 18 months, and Israeli newspapers regularly run updates on their relationship.

Mr Bagel: Sorry this might ruffle a few feathers, but when it comes to the draft, it's not right that celebrities and children of the rich and powerful are able to avoid it. Bar Refaeli should be ashamed of her actions. Thats my two cents.

I've never thought much of supermodels, its not like they contribute anything of great worth to society, in fact most of the time they espouse the very shallow values of vanity and self indulgence. Moving to L.A? bye..

I wish more young people had her good sense!

Would you be willing to spread the word about www.draftresistance.org? It's a site dedicated to shattering the myths surrounding the selective slavery system and building mass civil disobedience to stop the draft before it starts!

Our banner on a website, printing and posting the anti-draft flyer or just telling friends would help.

Thanks!

PS. When it comes to conscription, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

Mr Bagel, I agree with your comment at the bottom of the article.

I feel that her actions are very selfish considering she has happily lived in Israel under the protection of others who are doing mandatory military service.

I don't understand why children of prominent celebrities are able to get out of military service. They should not be treated different to anyone else.
As for Bar Refaeli, sounds like being a celebrity is going to her head.... then again, I don't have much respect for "super models" anyhow.

The first comment must have been from Cindy Sheehan and the second one comes from a spineless man who breathes today because other men had the courage he lacks to secure his freedom.

As far as Bar, she is an idiot who belongs around other out of touch idiots in LA. Israel is a better place without her traitor ass. It's an honor to serve in the IDF which apparently means she has no honor.

You see, Mr Bagel, we cannot measure supermodels by their IQ - there are a few other parameters, if you see where I am going ;-)
