Same as usual. There will be a lot of rhetoric but nothing will actually happen
The status quo has already changed - all bochrim now undergo registration and medical tests at drafting centers. There's no official exemption and there's a supreme court case about the legality of government funding in such situation.

Just wondering do all the yeshiva bochurim who are worried about being drafted vote?
Well if kfar chabad voted over 50% Utzma Lyisrael, it doesn't sound like they are worried about being drafted...

What's wrong with those Israeli pollsters?  Why are they allways so off-mark?

I don't see any government lasting their full term, with results like this...

I can't see a coalition w/o Bennet.
I doubt Livni can get along with Bibi.. she can go back to teaching us how to eat krembo..
IDK why they always are considering Yesh Atid as left wing.. Anti tal law -for sure... Left wing?  Definitely not.
If they veer to the left, next election they'll probably be gone, or cut in half -at least..
Meretz growing to 6 is quite sad :'( ,they're the worst enemy within, period.

20k votes are to be counted overnight.

Very interesting! He makes some great points, but one of his main points I think he is way off on. He makes it as if it is a recent development that chareidim are secluded, not letting their kids play with "secular kids", that part is non-sense. Orthodox people have been like that way before secularism was invented. Maybe it is because I don't know the difference between chareidim and orthodox.

There is no difference. It is one and the same. It's only because the media has labelled charedim as "ultra-orthodox" that there is confusion in the matter.

In my mind you can be Orthodox without being Charedi.

Agreed. A vote for one of the small, right wing factions thus election, ended being a vote for lapid. If the votes for small parties were given to likud, shas etc,, the right wing couldve formed a natural fitting coalition without lapid.

Right now, I'm banking on the extremism of the parties to break or prevent a coalition in the coming months. We'll have new elections which will strengthen both likud and shas to help form a strong right wing government.
