Draft Law - FAIL
Yeranen Yaakov 7/23/2013:
Sadly, the law will only promote inequality, as those Haredim who were not fit for full-time Torah study and were considering joining the army will now be dissuaded from doing so since they're being forced into it.

Hareidi Enlistment Law Figures Show Massive Failure
The Shaked Committee, headed by MK Ayelet Shaked (Jewish Home), met Monday morning to track the results of its controversial Enlistment Law, which was passed in mid-March, and found that the law has had the exact opposite of its intended effect.
It was revealed in the discussion that of the 1,500 hareidi IDF recruits set as a goal for the law, only 300 have been enlisted - meaning the legislation has only reached 20% of its goal.
As a result of the law, hareidi draft figures nosedived dramatically.
Those trends were pointed out as early as June, a mere three months after the law was passed, when Rabbi Avraham Baron, former Chairman for 25 years of the Hesder Yeshivas Association, told Arutz Sheva that hareidi enlistment had fallen sharply and said he hoped the High Court would invalidate the law.
