No chance to draft haredim

A 5,000-strong haredi crowd protested the proposed Tal Law alternative. Predictably, the Eda Haredith gathering vowed to be jailed rather than enlist in the atheist army.

There is no way that haredim would accept being drafted. For them, joining the army amounts to forfeiting Jewish religious values. The army, for its part, is not going to budge on its core values—doubtfully kosher food, mixed-sex environment, and deep respect for our Arab enemies.
