New Tal Law: nothing has changed

The current version, approved by Netanyahu and Shas, is meant to increase the number of haredim in the IDF to 6,000 by 2016. The change would be slow, incremental, and open to re-negotiations in the coming years.

Likewise, the government plans to draft just 5,000 Arabs into the National Service, though they greatly outnumber the haredim.
