Some more Likud members find coalition minus Haredi parties preferable

The third Knesset member from Likud to voice an opinion about why it's better to form another coalition without the Haredi parties has spoken out:
MK Faina Kirschenbaum on Tuesday became the third Likud-Beytenu lawmaker to say the parties would prefer a coalition without haredim after the January 22 election.

Earlier this month, coalition chairman Ze’ev Elkin (Likud) and MK Tzipi Hotovely (Likud) made similar statements.

Kirschenbaum, the Yisrael Beytenu secretary-general and a close ally of Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman, said the party hopes to form a coalition with larger, center-left parties.

“If blocs are created on the Right and Left, then we will not be dependent on small parties and haredi parties, and we can bring a big change,” Kirschenbaum said at a political event at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design in Ramat Gan.

“We will not have to deal with those parties’ political extortion and make changes that are better for the State of Israel,” she continued.

One of the major changes, Kirschenbaum said, will be to the system of government.

Last week, Elkin said there is no right-wing bloc in the current election, because haredi parties are willing to join any coalition that will help them avoid having to serve in the army.

The coalition chairman spoke in an event closed to press, but a tape of his speech reached Ma’ariv reporter Ze’ev Kam.

Hotovely told high school students in Ness Ziona that the only way to bring equality in the burden of IDF service is to form a coalition without haredi parties.
At this point, I'm in agreement, especially when pondering how the Haredi parties were willing to join a left-wing government, especially Shas. And the left-wing governments did appease them by not making army service a duty for them as well, let alone special civilian service. Shas' leaders also mistreated Netanyahu at least a few times and relied more on socialist style approach to education by demanding that the state foot the bill for their yeshivas. On top of that, they also didn't do much on their part to put a stop to troublemaking in the Haredi public like sexual harrassment/discrimination/segregation.

So I really don't see the point of including Shas and UTJ in the coalition unless they agree to go by what better values the public would like them to embrace.
