Danny Danon blasts anti-Haredi Lapid

Likud MK and Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon has blasted Yesh Atid leader and Finance Minister Yair Lapid for Lapid's obsessive and excessive focus on Haredim being drafted or doing national service (Hat Tip: Eliana).
The government committee weighing the “equal burden of service” issue is unfairly focusing on hareidi-religious Jews while ignoring the Israeli Arab community, Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon (Likud) has accused.
Danon told Yisrael Hayom that he and other members of Likud and Yisrael Beytenu will not support a proposal “that deals with just one community and leaves the Arabs alone.”
“We cannot ignore a huge part of the population,” he said. “Nobody expects [Arabs] to enlist in Golani, but they can volunteer in a local health center before going to study at Haifa University.”
Danon accused Finance Minister Yair Lapid of leading the trend to focus on hareidi Jews. “Lapid’s hate for the hareidi community compared to how he ignores Israeli Arabs is sheer hypocrisy,” he said.
Indeed. But then, this was always about destroying the Haredi way of life and not about 'equalizing the burden' or integrating the Haredim into the economy. Wasn't it?
