    תוכלו לעזור לי לתרגם את המשפט הבא:

    "Some enemies aren't meant to be fought"
    The best syntactic workaround I could find for the infinitive clause (since להילחם ב cannot be passivized) was
    ישנם אויבים שאינם אמורים להיות משהו להילחם\שנלחמים בו
    *The infinitive clause version sounds awkward to me now, does it to you too?
