Following the Peri Committee passage of a bill for haredi enlistment, MK Eitan Cabel Thursday said he would "pay a lot of money to read tomorrow's column written by Yair Lapid the journalist on Yair Lapid the finance minister."

In response to Lapid's support for equalizing the burden of service, Cabel penned his own version of such a column on Facebook.

Cabel's demonstrative column depicted a conversation between the MK and his family in which he explains to his son that the government's outlined draft policies would be "cheating" him, as a secular male due to serve standard, obligatory military service.
