Haredi MKs reacted angrily on Sunday to the decision of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and the Likud to draw up legislation for drafting haredi yeshiva students into the army based on the recommendations of MK Yohanan Plesner and the Keshev committee.

Netanyahu and Kadima chairman Shaul Mofaz agreed on Sunday that Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya'alon (Likud), Plesner (Kadima) and Mofaz himself would head a special working group to draft universal service legislation based on the Plesner Committee's recommendations.
