The Likud faction on Sunday unanimously approved a motion putting forward six points on the Keshev Committee, which was tasked with finding a replacement for the Tal Law.

In contrast to the recommendations published by MK Yonahan Plesner (Kadima) last week, the Likud statement says it sees no reason to delay the application of the "service for all" principle to the Israeli Arab population. Plesner recommended that the application of a service mandate for Israeli Arabs be implemented gradually.



The other points addressed and accepted by the Likud faction are: the principle of service for all Israeli citizens; that serving is a personal responsibility; providing incentives and rewards for those who serve in the IDF; creating an enforcement mechanism that will punish those who evade service; the immediate implementation of the committee's recommendations regarding men in the ultra-Orthodox communities.

A statement issued by the faction also noted that it views gender equality in the IDF as greatly important, emphasizing that moves to apply universal service cannot be allowed to harm gender equality.
