Is the IDF Weeding Out Chabadniks from the IDF Rabbinate?

Truth be said, there is no proof according to the Chabad Online report, but nevertheless, there is an alarming apparent pattern of Chabad-affiliated members of the IDF Rabbinate being held up from promotion and being dismissed from the military.

According to the report, it is unclear who if anyone is behind the reality that many Chabadniks are suffering, with some compelled to end their service while others are not being promoted. At first glance, one might point the finger of blame at IDF Chief Rabbi Brigadier-General Avichai Ronsky, but in the past, he has been a major fan of the Chabad rabbonim, having complimented them openly. Nevertheless, there are some who suspect he stands behind the obvious targeting of Chabad rabbonim in the military.

It would be interesting if there was anything backing this up.
