Why Doesn’t Equal Burden Apply to Arabs Too?

Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon makes it clear:

    The government committee weighing the “equal burden of service” issue is unfairly focusing on chareidi-religious Jews while ignoring the Israeli Arab community, Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon (Likud) has accused.Danon told Yisrael Hayom that he and other members of Likud and Yisrael Beytenu will not support a proposal “that deals with just one community and leaves the Arabs alone.”

    “We cannot ignore a huge part of the population,” he said. “Nobody expects [Arabs] to enlist in Golani, but they can volunteer in a local health center before going to study at Haifa University.”

Danon accused Finance Minister Yair Lapid of leading the trend to focus on chareidi Jews. “Lapid’s hate for the chareidi community compared to how he ignores Israeli Arabs is sheer hypocrisy,” he said.

The Perry Committee is currently researching the issue of chareidi-religious army enlistment in the wake of the end of the Tal Law, which granted an automatic deferral of service to full-time students of Torah. The committee has been tasked with proposing a solution by the end of May.

  1. “Danon accused Finance Minister Yair Lapid of leading the trend to focus on chareidi Jews. ‘Lapid’s hate for the chareidi community compared to how he ignores Israeli Arabs is sheer hypocrisy,’ he said.”

    Very true. If they would understand how much Lapid hates them as well. They will, alas it’ll be too late.

  2. Because they hate chareidim. chareidim make them sick. just like rebbi akivah while he was an am ha’aretz would want to bite any talmid chochom like a chamor. ??????? ?????
