They've always been opposed to the very idea of a Jewish state, but at the same time have felt entitled to tell it how to run its business - not to mention, of course, their sense of entitlement concerning the social service network.

They should be marginalized, and they should be told, "You did this to yourselves."

"...They should be marginalized, and they should be told, "You did this to yourselves..."

Got that right. They should get no more by way of privileges and benefits than would any other group of Israeli citizens.

good the silent majority is sick and tired of being ripped off

A. Nuran

This can only be good for Israel and, ultimately, for the long-term prospects of both Jews and charedim

80% Of Rockland County NY Want Haredim Out Of Government.

Scottie Boy

Hmmm... so if 80% of Americans don't want Blacks in govt, they should be barred as well? Welcome to the United States of the 19th century.

What a dumb blog post!

Nobody is saying that they should be banned idiot. This is not the charedi world where you ban everything. It is an opinion poll. And what you are speaking of is a dislike for a group of people based solely on their skin colour. What this is talking about is a dislike for a group of people based on their vile actions and hatred towards anyone outside their cult for the last many years and its negative impact on the Israeli government and society in general. So right back at you....what a dumb blog post.

Many Dati Leumi (MO) are even more sick of the chareidim, because they come in contact with them more often, and they don't accept MO as truly Orthodox. MO serve in the army, get a secular education, work, pay taxes, and still find plenty of time for Torah and Mitzvot. For that, they get no credit from the right flank.

but also too stupid to realize how flawed his analogy is.

Scottie Boy:
You forget that the UTJ and Shas has completely alienated secular Israel and they are the majority. So, if I were you, and live in Israel, I'd get ready to either put on a uniform or roll up my sleeves and get a job, because-THE PARTY IS OVER. Haredim, will now get off their behinds and add to the state rather than subtract.

Ben

I'm pessimistic about the prospects because Haredizm is a viral ideology and, like muslim fundamentalizm, can not be healed by jobs and army service.
The ideology itself must be confronted and tamed to prevent self distruction of the Jewish people.

Scottie Boy- love the "Blacks in government" analogy. Do you feel that wearing a big black hat entitles you to special protected minority status? American politics should be about breaking, rather than rewarding, the welfare cycle....regardless of color. That is not racism/antisemitism it is just good business. If a group wants to promote an unsustainable lifestyle the majority rejects it. That is United States of any century
