Former Kadima chairwoman Tzipi Livni on Sunday said that in order to achieve equality in Israel, every citizen must perform either military or civilian national service, whether they are Jewish or Arab, religious or secular.

Livni was speaking to members of "Camp Sucker," a movement calling for equal service from all segments of the Israeli population, at their tent encampment in Tel Aviv.

If some segments of Israeli society opt out of serving the country, she continued, there should be a limit to the number that are allowed to do so. "Those who don't follow the law must have sanctions levied against them."

Israel cannot talk about morals, equality and democracy when only some of its population serves, she added.
