Yechimovich slams Plesner recommendations on haredi draft

July 4, 2012 12:15

Opposition leader Shelly Yechimovich leveled criticism against the Plesner Committee and its recommendations for increasing ultra-Orthodox (haredi) and Arab participation in national civilian and military service, which were released Wednesday morning.

Yechimovich said that the Keshev Committee was tricking the public and is part of a “political puppet show that must end immediately.”

“A press conference on a flight to Mars would be worth as much,” she quipped on her Facebook page.

According to Yechimovich, Plesner had good intentions and some of his recommendations are worthy, but they are not legitimate due to the “cynical connection between Kadima and Likud, which occurred only for reasons of political survival.”
