The movement for equality in shouldering the national service burden rejected on Saturday Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's announcement that he was convening an emergency meeting Sunday to discuss the findings of the Keshev Committee.

"It has become difficult to follow Netanyahu's daily announcements. Each day he wakes up and tries a new spin. There is nothing to discuss, there is no need to form another committee or to seek counsel. There are findings that must be made law immediately," the group which has led the protest against the Tal Law said in a statement.

"Netanyahu we are no longer suckers, we won't accept any more declarations, just actions."

The statement concluded that another Tal Law, allowing haredi Torah scholars to indefinitely defer IDF service, would not be passed. The group said that a massive protest scheduled to take place in Tel Aviv on Saturday night would "send a clear message - There will be no Tal Law 2, there will be a law by which everyone serves."
