There will not be real equality in sharing the burden of national service until Haredim (ultra-Orthodox) and Arabs alike are enlisted, Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon said Saturday.

Speaking in Petah Tikvah at a weekly cultural event, Ayalon addressed several issues currently at the forefront of Israeli political and public discourse.

He said that army service must be identical for all Israelis in terms of conscription age and length of service. Despite the strife this week over finding a replacement to the Tal Law, which saw the Keshev committee crumble, and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Mofaz Premier Shaul Mofaz struggling to agree, Ayalon asserted that "it is not too late... to make the right  decision."
