The law says that all Jews must serve in the army no exceptions. The conscientious objectors like everybody else must serve in the army and if they refuse they will go to jail not be hailed as heroes. Lapid's budget was very unpopular if I think it is immoral to charge me such high taxes does that give me a right to refuse to pay tax because it is against my moral judgements to pay these higher taxes? If I do refuse to pay will I be a hero or criminal as the law demands we pay taxes and government is responsible for setting tax levels. These objectors might now like serving in the army but just like all the other laws they might not like they need to obey the law or be punished for it. Society needs laws some we like others we don't but no matter how we feel about those laws we must obey them all.
