This is brilliant and only way to keep the ultra-orthodix parties from choking the state. Netanyahu and Mofaz have pulled the utimate rabbit out of the hat and can now have a viable temporary respite to repeal the self destructive Tal law which can destroy the state from within. Ben Gurion made a tactical mistake to allow yeshiva students permanently abstaining from participating in the army or national service. Way to go Netanyahu and goodby meretz and the labor party.
