Share the defense burden? Let’s do it!
If the current Arab MKs had any imagination at all, they would submit their own bill obligating every citizen - regardless of ethnicity, religion, race, color and gender - to serve in the Israel Defense Forces. Then we’d see how the 'knights of the equal burden' would vote.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he’s committed to an equitable division of the defense burden. This sharing of the burden must “include all Israeli citizens, including the Haredi public and the Arab public,” Netanyahu declared at a meeting of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee earlier this month.
