Haredim advised to emigrate from Israel

Dozens of copies of a booklet calling on ultra-Orthodox Jews to emigrate from Israel were handed out last week near the main synagogue in Jerusalem’s Mea Shearim neighborhood, on the backdrop of the battle between Israel’s haredi and secular publics over the attempt to draft yeshiva students to the Israel Defense Forces and introduce core subjects into haredi schools’ curriculum.

Although the booklet was written about 15 years ago by Rabbi Moshe Dov Beck of the extreme Eda Haredit faction, it was handed out once again this week in light of the haredi draft issue, which has reached the High Court of Justice.

The 50-page publication cites passages from the Holy Scriptures as proof of the obligation to “escape from under the Zionist regime and not go in to visit there.” The claim is based on the haredi perception which sees the establishment of the State as a revolt against God and the world’s nations, which citizens will be punished for. …

Looks like the Hareidim don’t understand their own scriptures, which foretell the establishment of the State of Israel. A group that sees themselves as orthodox (they are not) and uses the language of the enemy (“Zionist regime” is used by the Islamic terrorists, ultra-leftists and neo-Nazis), never mind being perpetual welfare-addicted seminary students, is not going to garner much sympathy.

Listen up. Anyone who wears a fur hat and 14 layers of black clothing in the Israeli climate obviously has a direct pipeline to Yxxxxh and must be cherished at at all costs.*

As theological proof, I offer the medical fact that wouldn't an ordinary Jew would have sweated to death years ago?

Lapid’s coalition of individuals is already falling apart, just like his father’s coalition the secular-liberal Shinui party from 1999–2006. 40,000 marched against the new Likud/Lapid coalition, but the brunt of the hatred was towards Lapid’s already failed campaign promises.

The Haredi have made it pretty clear they will outlast and endure any gains by Lapid’s coalition, and simply undo the changes once Lapid loses his coalition to infighting and disillusionment, just like they did when Lapid’s father’s coalition collapsed.

On that point, I support the plan to force Haredi into the IDF/national service, and also to nudge the Haredim Yeshivas to teach actual educational courses to their boys,
