While I'm not a hater, and certainly see the validity of their studying, I think the bigger picture is being missed here. The issue of equal burden is more about a welfare system being fixed. Israelis are tired of sending their children to the army to possibly not come back, while the Ultras and Haredim don't serve or work and get free money.

If they have a problem with that, they can move here to the US and not suck what little resources Israel has dry.
