'If Hareidim Understood the Draft Bill, They Wouldn't Oppose it'


Hareidi MK Dov Lipman shared his thoughts on the enlistment bill, negotiations with the PA and the prospects for a split in Beit Shemesh.

Speaking to Arutz Sheva, MK Lipman said that despite media reports to the contrary, implementation of the recently-passed draft law is going "very well", and that the reason for hareidi hostility to the bill is the "huge gap" which exists both between the realities of the law and what the hareidi press has been reporting, as well as between the hareidi leadership and the rest of the community.
