Interior Min. Bashes Yeshiva Student Draft Committee

Interior Minister Eli Yishai (Shas Party) bashed the Plesner Committee calling it "extremely amateurish." He stated that it "ignores the complexity of the subject." The Plesner Committee presented its recommendations on Wednesday. The Knesset committee is seeking ways to draft more male yeshiva students and male Israelis of Arabic heritage into the Israel Defense Forces.
