Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Sunday that the decision to form a special team to draft universal service legislation based on the Plesner Committee's recommendations presented a "historic opportunity."

Barak said that the new law will help unite the nation and create a just distribution of the (national service) burden.

"This is the time to make decisions, and we are all obligated to take part in the mission and implement the law," the defense minister said.
