MK Gafni slams PM for trying to 'coerce' haredim to serve

Knesset Member Moshe Gafni (United Torah Judaism) slammed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for attempting to force haredim to serve in the army. "I miss Olmert," he said. "If Israel had a prime minister, he would have put his foot down and opposed this coercion. But Israel doesn't have a prime minister."


Gafni also said that MK Yohanan Plesner's recommendations for a universal draft "borders on anti-Semitism." He made the remarks during a Knesset plenum session dealing with the Tal Law. (Moran Azulay)
