Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz on Tuesday came out against "national service" as an alternative to IDF service, demanding that all minorities join military service.

"Cleaning one's synagogue or mosque does not count as equally sharing the  public burden," he said. "I want to warn against the illusion called national service."
