Lieberman’s last word awaited as Likud drafts bill to dissolve Knesset

Yisrael Beitenu leader Avigdor Lieberman still refused to budge on the conscription bill, against all the efforts by go-betweens Sunday overnight – despite major concessions by the ultra-religious parties. He remains the last hurdle facing Binyamin Netanyahu’s bid to form a coalition government led by his Likud. Both potential government and opposition parties are now awaiting to hear Lieberman’s final word after he leads a faction meeting at 1430 local time. Meanwhile, in case of a nyet, Likud is preparing to table a bill at 1600 hours for the dissolution of the Knesset ahead of a new general election. The opposition factions, led by Blue-White, are meeting to decide how to vote.

    So conscription quotas for yeshiva seminarists. They want to limit the number of students??

    They never learned in yeshiva!
    Yeshiva scales extremely well:
    One Sefer Gemera and two students
    learn together and discuss what they read.
    If they have questions they ask senior students
    and if they dont know they ask the rav of the
    department if he does not know they ask another
    Rav and if they all not know they ask the rosh
    yeshiva and if he does not know they ask
    roshey yeshiva of other yeshivot like Mir. And then
    they is becomes difficult maybe a dayan knows or
    a piece of paper falls from the sky as it is written in one story in the gemera.
