The Israeli Website Ynet has published an article by Hanan Greenberg that details the Israeli Defense Force's discrimination against recruits who admit to playing Dungeons & Dragons. According to the IDF, D&D players are "detached from reality and susceptible to influence," so the IDF prevents fantasy gamers from being considered for sensitive posts by only giving them a low security clearance. Greenberg quotes an IDF official as saying, "These people (gamers) have a tendency to be influenced by external factors which could cloud their judgment. They may be detached from reality or have a weak personality -- elements which lower a person's security clearance, allowing them to serve in the army, but not in sensitive positions."
Perhaps they're afraid of rules-lawyers questioning the range of the weapons or crying in disbelief that "No! The rulebook states that I get a leave this weekend!"
I guess even drill sergeants can meet their match...
