  1. The real issue is which parties are willing to cancel criminal sanctions against Hareidi draft refusal, which might involve either broad based exemption for anyone claiming a moral or religious objection to military service, and might lead to a professional/volunteer army.

    If Likud and Bayit Yehudi agree to the Hareidi demand, they will have no trouble forming a government. If the “right” insists on incarcerating the hareidim, the “left” has an option to form a government with Arab and Hareidi support. If neither secular camp will compromise, they will have no choice but to form a “grand coalition” led by Labor and Likud (and excluding the Hareidim, and the far right and far left parties).
