Kadima MK Shlomo Molla on Tuesday said that the issue of military conversions is not a subject to be discussed "at whim" by one party or another, according to an official statement released following a discussion in the Constitution, Law and Justice Committee on the IDF conversions bill.

"We are talking about people who served in the army and already established a family in Israel and closing the door on their aspirations for conversion is a shame on Israel and the Orthodox rabbinical establishment," Molla said.
