Lapid: Tal Law Will be Extended Behind Our Backs

Journalist-turned-politician Yair Lapid issued a warning, Monday evening, about extension of the Tal Law, which provides exemption from military service for draft-are yeshiva students, as an incentive for them to enter the work force.

Lapid wrote on his Facebook page, "Warning. They are going to deceive you! By the 31st of July, they will call this by another name and take their time, but behind our backs, as always, they will extend the Tal Law again."
