Leaders of the Camp Sucker movement on Monday slammed both Likud and Shas for torpedoing legislation that would replace the "Tal Law" with a more equitable solution that would increase the number of IDF inductees by drafting more minorities.
In a press release, the Camp Sucker leaders said that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had "sold the equality of the citizens of the state in a filthy political deal." The group also singled out Shas leader Eli Yishai, who they say was responsible for coordinating the early elections with Netanyahu in order to destroy the bill.
Idan Miller and Boaz Nol, leaders of the Camp Sucker group, said "Netanyahu promised us, in front of the entire nation, that he would take responsibility for increasing equality in the IDF draft process. He promised that he would do so in the current Knesset, and then he went and sold the the citizens of the country to the haredi parties... for nothing more than his own political survival."
They added that "the public will not forgive a politician that lies over and over. May every Jewish mother know that she has put fate of her son under the care of a completely untrustworthy prime minister." The comment parodies a famous saying by Israel's first prime minister, David Ben-Gurion, who said: “May every Jewish mother know that she has put the fate of her son under the care of commanders who are up to the task.” Read the full story here
