This can't be good for kollel youngerleit/zionist diehards

The Times is reporting that Saul Mofaz, boss of Kadima, and Bibi Netanyahu, boss of Likud, have signed a coalition contract that makes Mofaz Deputy PM, or consigliere.

and for kolelniks to join the IDF
The deal has four other conditions. If you''re a shul-goer, you'll likely be hearing lots about one of them. But exactly which one depends on the type of shul you attend.

MO shuls Rabbis are likely to be screaming about this:
[Mofaz] said that he would start with an interim Palestinian state on 60 percent of the West Bank and negotiate the rest... and thousands of settlers in far-flung locations would agree to move or be forced to.
... whereas their right-wing counterparts are already planning kinus and tzedakka drives to deal with this:
[One condition was] that the Parliament would pass legislation to require national or military service of all Israeli citizens, including ultra-Orthodox Jews
Don't hold your breath on any of this actually happening, but until things are sorted the House of Israel is in for a fun, fracturus, ride.
