Netanyahu: Israel soon to require national service for Israeli Arabs



PM speaks to anti-Tal Law protesters and promises a more equal enlistment law, but does not mention the ultra-Orthodox; PM says question of early elections in Israel to soon be clarified.

 

ed note–remember as you read this that when it comes to Israel and Jewish interests in general, it is always a case of ‘all show and no go’. 

This is nothing more than a pathetic attempt at furthering the lie that Israel is the ‘only democracy’ in the area that does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion or whatever.  Sure, Israel will allow Arabs to be part of its ‘mandatory national service’, she will even give the Arabs uniforms, but what they will be relegated to doing is 

–cleaning latrines

–shining boots

–digging ditches

–any other menial work that is not suited for ‘God’s chosen people’

All can be rest assured Israel will not give them weapons, unless they are BB-guns with no BBs in them

Not that any self-respecting Arab should want to serve in the IDF anyway, as it would be akin to slaves defending the same plantation system that is responsible for their own enslavement.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that he intends on setting into motion a new law that would include mandatory civilian national service for Israeli Arabs.

The statement came after Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman threatened on Saturday that a vote on a replacement to the Tal Law, which allows full-time yeshiva students to defer national service, would decide the date of Israel’s elections.

Lieberman advocated for a mandatory service law that would require the enlistment of the ultra-Orthodox, Israeli Arabs and all other Israeli citizens. He warned that his Yisrael Beiteinu party had exhausted its obligations to Netanyahu’s coalition.

Following Lieberman’s threats, Netanyahu met with representatives of the anti-Tal Law protest movement, called the “sucker’s camp,” and echoed the foreign minister’s statements that there must be a new law that would require Israeli Arabs to perform national service.

According to a statement by the Prime Minister’s Office, Netanyahu told the protesters that he intends on changing the distribution of the burden of service in Israel.

“Whatever was is not what will be,” he said. “I know that there are many opportunists that voted in favor of the automatic extension of the Tal Law, but I am not one of them. The Tal Law will be replaced with a different law – a more equal and correct one – and I am the one who will bring it for a vote before the Knesset.”

The statement did not mention the enlistment of ultra-Orthodox Jews.

Netanyahu added that the new law would require the enlistment of Israeli Arabs and said that the change will necessitate a larger budget.

On Saturday, Lieberman said on Channel 2’s “Meet the Press” that Israel’s political system will know whether or not it’s heading for early elections following the vote on a replacement to the so-called Tal Law on May 9.

The foreign minister’s comments came hours after newly anointed opposition leader and Kadima Chairperson Shaul Mofaz urged Netanyahu to move up the general elections to October of this year.

Later on Sunday, Netanyahu said during a meeting with Likud ministers that the question of whether Israel will hold early elections will soon be clarified.

“There are speculations about early elections but there are still no conclusions,” he said.

Netanyahu said that the opposition parties have been competing with each other and trying to show that they are willing to enter elections, but claimed that it is not true.

Culture and Sports Minister Limor Livnat said during Sunday’s cabinet meeting that Netanyahu said he is speaking to parties within the coalition, saying that “next week it will be decided when elections will be held.”

    I fail to see how this revoking of draft exemptions will benefit the entity. It is the yeshiva students and ultra orthodox who need to be pressed into the military.

    As for drafting the very people you occupy, the results would have to include mutinies (please do not kill your innocent brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, children for these Tel Aviv marauders.

    How would the average Arab/Israeli feel if s/he were the one responsible for demolishing Al Aqsa?

    Some A/I’s may be under the illusion that they will learn useful skills to crush the usurpers in the future, but like the article says, these folks will be in charge of honey dipping, polishing boots, and be under orders to murder their own kinfolk.

    I see this as another feature of ethnic cleansing – “What? Won’t serve? The deportation line is to the left.
    Another divide & conquer ploy. I envision the statistics of death by ‘friendly fire’ to skyrocketing.

    I agree with ruby-22-kate. The yeshiva students and ultra orthodox have been getting tax dollars (probably American) to do nothing other than study the Torah and Talmud. They don’t even work for a living.

    Leave the yeshiva students and ultra orthodox to their timewasting, at least they aren`t killing anyone..
    This is just another example of the diabolical parasitic thinking, which dreams up one insult after another, and heaps them on the long suffering Palestinians..
