And again: Lapid puts his foot in his mouth

Yair Lapid has put his foot in his mouth again.

On Friday, Lapid wrote a post on his Facebook page in which he called for firing Israel's Chief Rabbis for ruling that Jewish law forbids drafting women into the IDF.

There's one small problem: When he was the head of the Orot Shaul (hesder) Yeshiva (a Yeshiva that combines Torah study with army service), Lapid's number 2 in the Yesh Atid party, Rabbi Shai Piron, wrote a responsum in which he stated that he is not aware of any halachic ruling that permits women to serve in the IDF (link in Hebrew).

So will Lapid now fire Piron?
