Knesset member from the party «Israel Our home» Oded Forer said that everything that happens today around the law of appeal is simply a theater of the absurd.
«The issue of conscription in the IDF is entirely within the competence of the Ministry of defence and the army command. With all due respect, the opinion of the Council of Torah sages in this matter is totally irrelevant. At the moment there is no bill on conscription in the IDF, which could be discussed.
There are only attempts of political combinations in which we do not intend
to take part,» said Oded Forer.
According to the Deputy, the law on conscription in the IDF should deal with professionals, not the Council of Torah sages, which, together with the ultra-Orthodox parties and the Minister of justice invent some language.
«Under the cover of slogans about the quest for political stability is banal blackmail. The position of the NDI is unchanged: we will support only one bill who will develop and present a team of professionals, formed by the defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman. It is unacceptable for us, — said Oded Forer.
