That implies secular families having more children to assure the Jewish majority in Israel.
2. a real dialogue? How that should work?
The haredim consider israel as somekind of an evil state, constribute nothing really but get thier bills paid though the hard working israeli people.
They denie any attempt to integrate them, all they do is demanding to get into control of the rest of israel.
So tell me, how to get a REAL dialouge started with them? In the end only some use of force will get them ready to cooperate!
Just pampering them will not make it better a lil bit!

Dont confuse quantity with quality.
4. Equal Share Ridiculous
As ORA pointed out. If 95% what equal share of burden then let the Haredim impose something on seculars. Have seculars go learn in yeshivos and seminaries and have seculars start going to shul and doing mitzvas. Why do non-observant Jews get to force their views and outlook on others? Ridiculous, narrow minded intolerance. Not everyone shares the same beliefs as the State.
5. Better get with it and soon
when you look at what is happening in the Middle East neighborhood, you will need those soldiers a lot sooner than you think.

6. To # 4 Who pays for 70,000 Charedim who don't
work ???? We do, the Israelis who work and pay taxes. That Ben is what I call Imposing on us!
7. And Israeli Arabs?
If 62% of Haredim believe they should be exempt, that should mean 38% of Haredim believe they should do some form of national service. That's quite a good start and should be encouraged. How many Israeli Arabs believe they should also do some form of national service? We're told the Arab MK's don't speak for the Arab public. Have we surveyed the Israeli Arab public?
