Kadima responded Sunday to the passage of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's yeshiva stipend reform legislation, that the prime minister "sold the Israeli public, is training the draft-dodgers and has turned the IDF from a peoples' army to the 'IDF Inc.'"

In order to win over the religious parties' support, the statement continued, "Netanyahu has chosen the culture of lies at the expense of equality, compelling the public to pay" for the cost of the government's "survivability." The Kadima statement said, "The decision evades responsibility, sells out the values of the state and spits in the face of the young generation that serves and contributes."
