Giyus Law Postponed: Government Averts Coalition Crisis, Avoids Snap Elections


A deal brokered by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman of Yisrael Beytenu Tuesday evening has resolved the ongoing coalition crisis over a charedi-backed draft law, and averted the collapse of the Likud-led government.

According to the committee’s decision parties will vote as a bloc, with their vote determined by the party chair.

  1. PM Netanyahu is not ready for continuous road blocks and protests because of the racist giyus law which incriminates only chareidim, while 1/2 of the secular are legal draft dodgers and Arabs get financial aid even without serving.

  2. “a bill aimed at protecting army draft exemptions for yeshiva students”
    That’s a very weak description of the law. What wasn’t mentioned is the fact that this law includes annual conscription quotas that number in the thousands. Only by reaching the quotas every year will the rest of the bochurim be safe. Mamesh cantonists!
    So we will send a few thousand (the quota for 2018 is 3,300 bochurim rachmana litzlan) bochurim to the Shmad machine also known as the IDF, and in exchange the rest of us will be safe. Why do we have frum Knesset members if this is the best they can do??

  3. Typical #FAKE NEWS to pretend the day has been saved when the new agreement is contingent on a spiked quota for chareidim to be drafted.
