Interior Minister Eli Yishai on Tuesday said that the Keshev committee, responsible for replacing the Tal Law on haredi (ultra-Orthodox) army enlistment, was born in sin, Israel Radio reported.
Yishai said the committee created a cruel race between political parties over who could undermine the haredi public most. "Those same people who want to tear Israel's Torah from us know that there is no existence for the nation of Israel without the Torah of Israel."
