Time to stop bad-mouthing haredim and to open a dialogue


It’s time to stop repeating the false mantra that implies – or blatantly states – that the haredim (ultra- Orthodox) are bloodsucking draft-dodgers who take everything they can from the state without giving anything in return.

This may be true of some haredim. It certainly isn’t true of all of them.

This is total BS.

There are about 60,000 haredim studying in yeshivot with a draft exemption. Their living expenses are covered by the state.

About 2000 haredim per year enlist in the army.

The vast majority of haredim are anti-Zionist blood sucking leaches, and the few who aren't don't exonerate the majority.
