Justice Minister Tzipi Livni responded Tuesday evening to the High Courts ruling to stop funding yeshivas whose students did not enlist to the IDF after receiving draft notices.

Livni said that the High Court is working towards equalizing the burden. "The High Court is not the enemy of the haredim, rather it is the enemy of inequality and evading the law."

"The High Court will protect the value of equality and will not let anyone harm it," she added.
