MK Danny Danon (Likud) on Wednesday accused the Plesner Committee tasked with forming a plan to increase national and military service across various sectors of the population as serving Kadima's political aims.

Danon said that the Keshev Committee marks Kadima’s end, because rather than seek to end inequality, Plesner was more concerned with pleasing his party’s Arab voters.

“The people of Israel are sick of seeing Arabs sit back while a small percentage of the population carries the whole burden,” Danon stated. “All Israeli Arabs must do national service.”
