The Kadima spokesman said that the "conversions thought police" would not pass, in a statement released Monday.

"We will not agree in any way that IDF soldiers who converted will live their Jewish lives with apprehension and fear because of the whim of the Chief Rabbinate judges. No political deal between the courts of the rabbis will be done on the backs of the soldiers.

"IDF conversion is conversion in all senses and there is no canceling this after it has been done," the statement read.
