Interior Minister Eli Yishai said Tuesday that most Israelis support at least a large segment of the haredi community studying in yeshivas instead of joining the IDF.

Speaking to Israel Radio, Yishai said "Most Israelis don't think they're suckers for joining the army.  They understand that those who study in yeshivas work very hard. Studying the torah is a legitimate way of serving the state."
