Quote of the Day

By Gldmeier @gldmeier
More than the State of Israel needs the haredim in the army, it needs them in the workforce. Therefore it is important to create for them a track that does not obligate them to stay in the yeshivot, even someone who is not really learning, but will let them go out into the workforce..
  -- MK Ayelet Shaked (Yamina)
she is 100% correct, but how do you do that without resolving the army issue? If you just give a blanket exemption to all haredim, suddenly many other people in Israeli society will be saying they dont want to do army service and why should one be automatically exempt and not the other? That is besides for people claiming they are haredi when they are not, just to get out of service There also has to be some modicum of fairness, of shared and equal responsibility, built into the system - perhaps the blanket exemption will be replace dwith some other form of service such as National Service or Civil Service, though those tracks already exist and arent utilized either all that much.. so I am not sure how this can be accomplished
