Ok, I'll be the first one to make the comment (just to be yotzi): "What do you mean 'fake' mental illness?"


+++The hared draft dodgers also received prescriptions for sedative injections, which they were supposed to receive at their HMOs. Instead, the ring leaders replaced the prescription sedative ampoules with ampoules of Vitamin B12 made to look like the sedative, and the haredi draft dodgers brought these to their HMO’s nurses who then administered the shot of the ‘sedative.’+++

Apart from all the other things they did, tampering with medications is a very stupid, irresponsible and dangerous act.


How do haredim fake mental illness? By acting normal.


Hal -Hahahahaha thats a good one.


Are we sure they are faking?

So if you fake mental illness to avoid the draft, how about the armed forces using you as a fake target practice dummy. Save the army a few shekels on the dummies and save the taxpayer a whole lot more.

After all, what is the difference between Haredism and mental illness?


i'm sure the gedolim would approve.

This has been going on for a very, very, long time, generations.

Apologies to Billy Joel (You May be Right):

Friday night I crashed your kiddish
Saturday I spoke in Yiddish
Sunday came and in kollel again
I was only being frum
Wasn't helping anyone
And we all enjoyed the schnorring for some change

I've avoided all the combat zones
I walked through Williamsburg alone
Even ate gefilte fish with lots of chrayn
I told women not to drive
But I made it with frum jive
So I said that only proves that I'm insane

Well, I must be right
I may be crazy
But it just might be meshugenehs avoid the war
Don't wanna fight
Want you to save me
Well you may be wrong for all I know
Because I'm right

Remember how I found you there
Alone in your IDF gear
I told you divrei Torah until you yawned
You were lonely for your wife
I said live the kollel life
'Cause you might enjoy some madness with your spawn

Now think of all the years you tried to
Find someone to make you a freier
I might be as lazy as you say
If I'm lazy then it's true
That I am a better Jew
Whom you wouldn't want our enemies to slay




Wrong but I must be right
You may be wrong but I must be right
(till fade out)






IMO, this is definitely one of your best songs by far.

"Friday night I crashed your kiddish
Saturday I spoke in Yiddish...."

LOL =)
