Sharing the Burden in Israel Means More Than IDF Service

The most critical aspect of equality in Israel is in the economic sphere, starting with municipal taxes.

The clarion call in the recent election for “equal sharing of the burden” shook the secular public out of its apathy and was one reason behind the Yesh Atid party’s huge success. With coalition talks now in full swing, both Yesh Atid and Habayit Hayehudi are waving the equal burden flag, knowing full well that this is what their voters expect them to achieve.
