Yisrael Beitenu, the party headed by Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman continues calling for the drafting of chareidim.
After the Tal Law expired at the end of July 2012, Lieberman turned to Defense Minister Ehud Barak to draft chareidim, who prior to that date were protected by the Tal Law.
Interestingly, the letter sent to Barak by faction members was not signed by Liberman or party MK Anastasia Michaeli.
The letter speaks of the government’s opportunity to correct the historic injustice by drafting chareidim and thereby solving the ‘sharing the burden’ issue.
