MK Yogev: Equal Burden Should Be 'Privilege to Serve'


Member of Knesset Moti Yogev (Jewish Home) requested a faction meeting to discuss his party's relationship with the Yesh Atid party. MK Yogev said he voted for the yeshiva student draft law because of an obligation that Jewish Home has with Yesh Atid. However the long-time IDF commander in a special forces unit said he personally is very skeptical about the benefits of the law which Yesh Atid initiated. "I voted for the law with great pain," he stated on Wednesday. The Equal Sharing of the Burden bill " should have been entitled 'the privilege to serve' bill," he stated.
