Kadima leader Shaul Mofaz said Monday that he believes the government can successfully draft a bill to replace the Tal Law on haredi (ultra-Orthodox) enlistment by the weekend, but reiterated that Kadima would leave the coalition if the effort fails.

Speaking to Channel 2 news, Mofaz said that progress on the bill is "headed in the right direction," but warned that "until there's an agreement, there is no agreement."

He also said that haredi Jews must be drafted by the age of 22 at the latest, a condition he called a red line.


In an interview with Channel 10 Mofaz also said that service "is part of our DNA as Jews."
