Not historic and not an achievement
Although it’s true that the Haredim are resisting the Perry Committee’s recommendations for a new military draft with all their might, deep down they’re chuckling. 'That’s it?' they’re asking themselves. 'This is the best the secular can do even when we’re weakened and out of the coalition?’
“This is a historic achievement,” Yair Lapid hurried to declare about the legislative recommendations of the Perry Committee, even before they were finalized. Perhaps that’s how you get public opinion on your side, but the sad truth is that this “achievement” is no achievement, and it certainly isn’t historic.
