Outrage to alternative Haredi draft plan

Religious parties in Israel were outraged to learn that the Plesner Committee, tasked with finding alternatives to the Tal Law, which regulates haredim's IDF service, has decided to recommend both mitigations and sanctions be applied in the matter. If Haredim should default on IDF service or National Service at the age of 23, they will be subjected to personal sanctions. Religious seminars that fail to refer their students to service will be subjected to budgetary sanctions as well. The committee's method includes affording 20% of yeshiva youths considered prodigies -- a permanent exemption from service, which will release some 1500 students from service in each draft class; as well as deferring yeshiva students' service until the age of 22. The religious parties are threatening that should these laws come to pass, the political crisis would be "the least of Netanyahu's problems."
