Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met with Vice Premier Shaul Mofaz (Kadima) Friday morning to resolve what appeared to be a coalition crisis brewing over efforts to equalize national civil and military service throughout the country's demographic groups.

On Thursday, Netanyahu warned members of the Keshev Committee on Thursday that unless it instituted mandatory national service for the Arab sector, he might decide not to bring the committee’s recommendations to the Knesset for a vote.

The Keshev Committee, tasked with drafting proposals to replace the “Tal Law,” announced earlier Thursday that it had decided instead to institute a recruitment target for national service in the Arab community, of at least 6,000 recruits per year by 2016.
