    It's not much of anything but it's a start. Finally the haredim will have to start becoming part of normal society instead of continuing to be elitists who put prayer and study above protecting the land that allows them to live the blessed lives they have. Hopefully the government and the army will take more determined steps so that all eligible Haredim will serve. If datim can both serve and study what gives them the right to not serve. They are no holier than the next man.
