Shas triumvirate leader Eli Yishai asserted Monday that his party is not afraid of being in the opposition.

In an interview with Israel Radio, Yishai said that Shas has been in the opposition before, and returned stronger to the coalition.

However, he asserted that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu wants a wide coalition and he wants Shas in it.

Addressing the issues of equalizing the burden, Yishai said that there are many haredim waiting to enter national service. "The haredi public is flexible and open, and many want to joint the army," he said.

He added, however, that the process must be conducted in an organized, agreed-upon manner.
