Likud MK Moshe Saada says that the current version of the Haredi enlistment bill advanced by the Knesset last week should be “thrown in the trash.”

“The bill the way it is is not moral, values-based and should be thrown in the trash can of history,” Saada tells Army Radio. He says the advancement of the legislation is “technical and allows us to hold a hearing on it and turn it into one of equality — it needs to deal also with Haredim, Arabs and any people who don’t want to serve.”

The bill, which would do little to increase Haredi enlistment in the IDF, has received harsh backlash for coming amid eight months of grueling war and what the IDF says is a manpower shortage.
