Tel Aviv (TPA) — Public at-
tention was focussed last
week on the sizable number
of yeshiva students exempted
from military service. Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir and
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres agreed it is unfair and
does not serve the national
Shamir said that "the
wholesale exemption of
yeshiva students from service
is splitting the nation in two."
Peres proposed that exemp-
tions should be reduced to the
number necessary to main-
tain the religious schools, not
make them a haven for draft
He told the Knesset's For-
eign Affairs and Security
Committee that "the criteria
for exemptions have appar-
ently changed since 1977, and
we ought to examine the
Israeli law requires that all
able-bodied citizens serve in
the armed forces when they
reach the age of 18. Men are
required to serve for three
years and women for two
years. But yeshiva students
are excused as long as they
pursue their religious studies.
