Shas Chairman Threatens Support for Territorial Withdrawals

The bills to be discussed this week include the Governance Bill, significantly raising the voting threshold and endangering small Knesset parties; the Enlistment Bill, sending hareidi yeshiva students to the draft for the first time in Israel’s history; and the National Referendum Bill, requiring a national referendum on Israeli land withdrawals.

That bill does not include Judea and Samaria, as they are not currently under Israeli sovereignty, but would cover land-swaps. In the alternative Opposition meeting, held at the Knesset's Negev Hall, Arab, hareidi and leftist MKs united to attack the government.
