The IDF is having its budget slashed so they are not buying essential new equipment and without the new equipment the lives of soldiers are put more at risk and the IDF doesn't have the equipment it needs to deal with growing threats so everybody is at risk. Recruiting the haredi will cost the IDF millions, modern weapons mean we don't need them and there are thousands of haredi most of whom will end up jobnicks which makes drafting them a waste of money, The best solution is to create a civilian nataional service where they do jobs in the day and go home at night, the majority of the haredi would not fight the idea and it would get them into a go out to work mindset. The only reason the government is going out to recruit the haredi is to satisfy Lapid and the secular Jews who hate the haredi and nobody is interested in whats best for the country & IDF.
