Netanyahu: Gov't will find better solution to Tal Law

January 30, 2012 16:29

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday said that the government would find the best solution for all citizens before the Tal Law is brought to a vote in the Knesset.

The prime minister defended the government’s decision to bring the Tal Law to a Knesset vote when it expires in six months, saying that the previous two governments automatically extended the law regarding haredi (ultra-Orthodox) deferrals of IDF service.

“We know there has to be a better solution, and we will bring the government’s proposal to the Knesset,” Netanyahu said.

He refused to answer questions from the reservists as to whether the “better solution” is a new bill or not.

Netanyahu told reservists attending Monday’s Likud faction meeting that they are “the salt of the earth, and the state owes them a lot.”
