MK Porush: Forceful Enlistment Will Cause Civil War

MK Meir Porush (United Torah Judaism) warned on Thursday that any attempt to force hareidi-religious Jews to enlist in the army will cause a civil war in Israel.

Speaking to Arutz Sheva after meeting with President Shimon Peres on the issue, Porush said, “Usually during a war, one sees fire. We don’t have the rifles, but even if we did we would never fire.”
