Thanks for correcting the link Flag :)

I think in practice, even if they do change the law it's not going to make a big difference to the number of people who serve...apparently only about 50% of potentials actually serve, and many duck out under medical reasons, 'low motivation' or just refusing to serve. At present they are excluded under a law allowing religious study as a reason for exeption, but if people can avoid serving simply by refusing to do the training then I don't see how much difference changing this law would make.
Was watching the wright stuff programme this morning and was surprised to learn that members of the Israeli Defence Force wear their uniform in public when off duty.
