Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has met early on Tuesday with Knesset members Yakov Litzman and Moshe Gafni of United Torah Judaism, and briefed them on Kadima's decision to join the government. Sources in UTJ said Netanyahu promised to involve the party in the discussion dealing with alternatives to the Tal Law.
"Bibi said that this will be a new law, a different one, which won't include forceful IDF enlistment (of haredim) but will do so through integration," one source said. "He asked us to be partners in the discussion." (Kobi Nahshoni)
