Lapid: New gov't will not make real change to Tal Law
May 10, 2012 21:11

Yesh Atid party leader Yair Lapid let loose on the new unity deal that brought Kadima into the government claiming that the coalition has no intention of integrating haredim into military and national service.

"They will not change the Tal Law," Lapid said, noting that they will claim "they made a revolution" while merely adding another "ridiculous" and meaningless section to the law to cover up their ignoring the issue.

"Whoever placed Eli Yishai in charge of drafting haredim" into the army does not mean to treat the issue with seriousness declared Lapid.

He noted that Interior Minister Eli Yishai already said in recent interviews that he and the haredim have nothing to worry about from Kadima regarding any new push to draft haredim.
