High Court to state on haredi army service: You’ve created a monster

Even as there was no decision, there was no ambiguity on Sunday about the High Court of Justice’s view of the radical change in November to the law about haredim serving in the IDF, with Justice Uzi Vogelman telling the state that “you’ve created a monster.”

The law passed in November pushed back targets for inducting haredim from 2014- 2017 to 2020 and beyond, and essentially eliminated criminal sanctions for draft-dodging ultra-Orthodox men by giving the defense minister nearly unlimited discretion to exempt them from meetings the targets.
