Gafni: Force Hareidim Who Don't Study to Enlist


MK Moshe Gafni (United Torah Judaism) said on Thursday that he would support a law that will force young hareidi men who do not study Torah and evade the army to enlist in the IDF.

Speaking in an interview on Kol Yisrael radio, Gafni said that United Torah Judaism's position is that anyone who does not study Torah must serve in the IDF. He said that those who lie about it should be caught and even sent to prison, because they cause damage to those students who truly study Torah.
