Israel’s two largest bus lines removed posters calling for a draft of yeshiva students from their buses following the threat of a boycott from the fervently Orthodox community. The posters, which followed Labor Party leader Ehud Barak’s call to limit the number of draft deferments given to yeshiva students, read, “One People — One Draft. We Are All Jews, Even the Haredim.” In response to the removal of the posters, left-wing and religious pluralism activists called for a boycott of Dan and Egged buses.
