Hasidic Member Of Knesset Calls On Haredim To "Make War" Against The Reform Movement

Rabbi Israel Eichler 2“What connects all the evil decrees [the draft of haredi yeshiva students, the requirement that haredi schools teach some basic secular studies, etc.] being directed at the haredi community? The Reform women at the Kotel, the the profaning of the holy. I spoke with [Arab] MK Dr. Ahmed Tibi and I understood from him that when it comes to the Ramadan fast [the police and border patrol] are considerate towards the Arabs [on the Temple Mount,] but when a group of women wish to act in a disgraceful and inappropriate fashion near the remnants of the Temple, who is targeted in response? The haredi community."

Rabbi Israel Eichler 2
MK Yisrael Eichler

Yeshiva World reports:

MK Yisrael Eichler addressed the eighth annual Hamodia Conference [Hamodia is a haredi daily newspaper controlled by the Ger hasidic movement] in the Jerusalem Convention Center on Tuesday, 24 Tammuz 5773 [July 2, 2013]. [The] Following is a synopsis of his remarks.

“What connects all the gezeiros [evil decrees; the draft of haredi yeshiva students, the requirement that haredi schools teach some basic secular studies, etc.] being directed at the chareidi tzibur [the haredi community] [?] [T]he Reform women at the Kosel [Western Wall], the chilul Kodesh [the profaning of the holy]. I spoke with [Arab] MK Dr. Ahmed Tibi and I understood from him that when it comes to the Ramadan fast they [the police and border patrol] are considerate towards the Arabs [on the Temple Mount] but when a group of women wish to act in a disgraceful and inappropriate fashion near the remnants of the Beis HaMikdash [of the Temple], who is targeted in response[?] [T]he chareidi tzibur [the haredi community]”.

Eichler feels we must ask ourselves “where is the money” and look in the direction of the Reform Jews, those who “create the divide in the nation, [and] those who fund their activities.” He is calling [on haredim] to wage a war against the Reform [Movement], which must begin with a probe and then [follow with] using the same tactics [they use] against them.

He spoke of two nonprofits that bring people to Israel and receive enormous funding. The first if [sic] Birthright (Taglit) which Eichler reports receives 120 million NIS [$33,069,720] annually for its 10-day trips. The second in Masa, which receives 100 million NIS [$27,551,200] annually yet brings “less than 10,000 students a year.” [Which works out to $2,755 per student for an all-inclusive trip – something Eichler did not tell his math-challenged audience.]

He then questions “why is it that [the government] only cut[s] from the thousands of yeshiva students who come here from abroad to study Torah and their parents pay their hard earned money for them”.

he's threatening to make war!
when his goal should be "ahavas yisroel!"

i want one hour in bed with this guy

Aside from the utter incoherence of his logic, it's very telling that MK Eichler is commiserating with Ahmed Tibi. Because there IS NO "Reform Islam" for all intents and purposes (i.e. nothing which is any serious player in the Islamic world).

One of the best things that could happen in the world right now is if vast numbers of Muslims adopted a Reform version of Islam. And one of the best things to happen to Israel is if the Orthodox monopoly were broken and a little healthy competition were allowed to exist.

You'd be lucky if he lasted three minutes, from the look of him.

"Calls On Haredim To "Make War" Against The Reform Movement"

What, they weren't already?

Of course, the Reform movement has shirked the draft, given comfort to Israel's ideological (and physical) enemies, vandalized property, acted rudely, dressed bizarrely, called modestly dressed females as young as 5 "prostitutes," attacked Modern Orthodox youth who strayed into their neighborhoods, refused to work, refused to educate their youth to be employable, protected child molesters, monopolized the official rabbinate, and declared the "pulsa d'nura" death sentence on those with whom they disagreed.

Oops, that's the Ultra-Orthodox. My bad.

yochanan,
bravo

Ruthie: I know he has long peyos, but size doesn't matter.

Yes, all the problems Jews face are because of the Reform movement and assimilation. Jews never had any problems before any of that happened.
Does this idiot really believe that Haredim are the ones facing discrimination because of the WoW? Looool

"Hasidic Member Of Knesset Calls On Haredim To "Make War" Against The Reform Movement"

I am Conservative, but think I can speak for my Reform friends when I say "bring it, Bubba".

Heck, we can win this "fight" without breaking a sweat. We (collective - all "liberal" Jews) just stop sending them money.

War over.
