    the religious exemption from national service is being abolished in Israel. The ultra-orthodox are increasingly unpopular as they are seen as "welfare queens", to put it in US terms, dependent on government handouts to maintain their large families and lifestyle without contributing to the defense of the country.

      Politics is a strange business.  Let an Arab try to say anything against the orthodox and see what happens.

      An idea is not responsible for who happens to be carrying it at the moment. It stands or falls on its own merits.
