MK Chetboun: Yesh Atid MKs 'Fanning Flames of Hate'


The committee, headed by Jewish Home MK Ayelet Shaked, is hammering out the last details of the bill that would authoritatively decide for once and for all, MKs hope, what the obligations of 18 year old Israelis to the state are.

The Committee on Wednesday discussed two key points – imposing criminal sanctions, up to and including jail time, on draft dodgers from the hareidi community, and the inclusion of a four-year grace period. Jewish Home MKs on the panel either voted against or abstained.
