Difficult and threatening security conditions prevailing throughout the process of Constitution of the State of Israel and in its first 60 years of independent life determined a constant and intense interaction between the country’s military and civilian sectors. This interrelationship was reflected and configured in character and leadership structures very special and peculiar of israeli society that significantly differ it from others. Without penetrating into a profound sociological analysis, will try to emphasize only certain aspects of these characteristics and models of driving so special, particularly, the great differences that are perceived in certain important social nuances through the stages that Israel ran from its independence until its first 60 years. The proclamation of independence, the war that breaks out immediately together with sparse population, configured the deep roots of the slogan all the people is the army and the army is all the people. The society as a whole It mobilizes in the military effort and only a few hundred Orthodox religious preachers were freed by the leader Ben Gurion as express order of senior rabbis.
A glorious military past combative, participation in audacious operating histories and the newspaper called to reserve became one of the symbols more important outstanding social status of every citizen. The army, outside of fulfilling the sacred mission of providing maximum security to the civilian population, tried by all means to support the development efforts of this new society in growth. As an example cannot be side her enormous contribution to indigenous artistic creation born of sets of theater, satire and music that were originally recruited for the entertainment of the soldiers but which eventually became true pillars of that immense and admirable creation is new israeli culture. Another noteworthy aspect is the active participation of the army in the national effort supported by all sectors politicians aimed at the expansion and development of civil colonization, especially in frontier zones, with the supplementary aim of increasing the defense capability.
