Tzipi Livni rebuked the Netanyahu government Sunday morning for its decision to approve drafting 1,300 ultra-Orthodox young men into civilian service instead of military service on Sunday.

That Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's government intends "to circumvent the [High Court of Justice] and continue perpetuating this historic injusice is outrageous, immoral and does not stand the test of the High Court," the Tzipi Livni Party leader said.

Livni described the move as a decision by Netanyahu "to spit in the face of the Zionist majority" on the eve of elections.
