Landau and Matalon to Visit 'Suckers' Tent


Energy and Water Minister Uzi Landau and Member of Knesset Moshe Matalon (Yisrael Beiteinu) are scheduled, Friday morning, to visit a tent set up by opponents to the government's proposed renewal of the Tal Law, which grants military deferments to draft-age yeshiva students.

The party's Knesset faction issued a statement, saying "the faction is determined to resist any further extension of Tal Law both in the Knesset and in any other place where the law is discussed. Non-extension of the law is a golden opportunity to arrange a new reality in Israel, in which all strata and sectors will take part in the burden of obligations imposed on citizens."
