      UTJ Campaign: You've Been Drafted. Just Kidding!

      Activists from the United Torah Judaism (UTJ) party distributed phony army induction notices, Monday evening, to many homes in hareidi-religious populations centers in and around Jerusalem and Bnei Brak, near Tel Aviv. The orders called on the recipients to report for three years of military duty, starting on February 23rd with a reminder that not to do so is a violation of the law.

      The note includes a reminder that UTJ and Shas are looking at uniting around the issue of hareidi induction. It describes the center parties as "anti", adding that if they win, "Don't be surprised if you get an order like this - only real - delivered to your home."
