Israel needs to stop making concessions to these parasites.

On the other hand, as I have said before, the Charedim should NOT do military service as they are too much trouble for the IDF to mananage with all their special requirements which mostly have nothing to do with Halacha. An additional consideration is that we can see that the Charedim are becoming more radical, more violent and more dangerous. We don't want to see them use military skills to promote their radical cause and the absolute last thing we want to hear is "Baruch Hashem" before a Charedi suicide bomber blows up.

They DO NEED to do some type of community service which is much harder, more unpleasant and of much longer duration than military service would be. If an individual Charedi wants to reform and work (as required by Torah) then he could agree to be educated and do less or no community service as long as he agrees to use his new-found education for work purposes.

Most of them are not genuine students, let alone rabbinical students and most of them are certainly not genuine scholars. They are mostly time-wasters who don't even attend yeshivah or kollel full time, even though they are meant to. No one would have any problem supporting a few hundred GENUINE scholars to learn and maintain the traditions and engage in deep scholarship but to have hundreds of thousands on the public purse is ridiculous.

put a square into a hole

If israel can make consessions to the arabs all day and night, than what is wrong with making a few consessions for the frumme??
