More time requested for amended draft law in Israel

The Israeli Supreme Court has been asked to allow the government another seven months to get its act together on new legislation on the conscription of ultra-Orthodox students. Haaretz has the story here. Excerpt:
“The induction of yeshiva students is one of the most complicated and sensitive issues facing Israeli society” says the petition. “This matter involves questions of identity, culture, economics, society and religion, questions which the court ruled had better be resolved by consent, as far as possible. Amending of the law is required in order to reach a balance between various interests and clashing objectives.”
