1. Q. Which of the parties are semi-reliable supporters of the Judaic State law?
A. Likud, Yesh Atid (Lapid), ha-Tᵊnuah (Livni), Bayit Yᵊhudi (Bennet) & Yisraeil Beiteinu (Liberman)
2. Q. Of these parties, which also support Drafting Yeshivah students no differently than all other Israeli Jewish boys?
Update 2018.10.16: Well, this one is a “reverse worded” bill, making it seem to the public the opposite of what it really is:
“If new legislation is not voted into law, current deferral regulations would expire with the deadline and thousands of yeshiva students would find themselves unable to renew their deferments, making them eligible to be drafted by the IDF.” (https://www.timesofisrael.com/zionist-union-head-attacks-yesh-atid-over-support-for-haredi-army-draft-bill/)
Ergo, it turns out that standing for drafting yeshivah boys like all other Jewish boys really means opposing this new law that would dilute the draft to a minuscule meaningless fraction limited to boys who are failing their yeshivah studies; saddling the IDF with yeshivah dregs who can’t even pass the yeshivah — no math, no science — ignorant test! It’s not enough that the Ultra-Orthodox khareidim are determined to keep Orthodox Jews as mushrooms in the Dark Ages, they want to empty their trash into the IDF to recycle.
So, the party (or parties), OF THOSE WHO PASS THE FILTERS ABOVE, that we need to support will oppose this new law so that “current deferral regulations … expire with the [existing] deadline and thousands of yeshiva students … find themselves unable to renew their deferments, making them eligible to be drafted by the IDF.”
A. MAYBE יש עתיד (Yesh Atid; Lapid)?
3. Q. Which OF THE ABOVE REMAINING parties are most reliable to refuse diluting the conversion and draft laws and avoid including the Ultra-Orthodox Khareidim in a coalition?
A. MAYBE יש עתיד (Yesh Atid; Lapid)? Maybe no party. In the last summer session of the K’nesset, Yesh Atid caved to support the new bill easing the draft for the Ultra-Orthodox. So, maybe no party is willing to stand up to the Ultra-Orthodox, refuse the new “Ease The Existing Yeshivah Draft Law” bill and apply the regular draft to yeshivah students? In that case, the only option would be to support the best party in the previous question.
Update 10.12: What does Benny Gantz’ new party, “Akhi Yisraeil” (My brother Israel) stand for relative to these issues? Can’t find any positions for the party posted on the web, yet. Bobbleheads are predicting his party would start off about the size of Bennet’s “Bayit Yehudi” party. So it’s important.
On these issues, Bibi says (and dances the political sidestep) but does not do.
