Haredi Paper Says Hamas Missile Fire Has Done Something Very Good – Reduce Shabbat Desecration By Secular Jews In Tel Aviv

Terrorism, it seems, isn't all bad.

According to a report in Ynet, the haredi newspaper Yated Ne'eman, the official mouthpiece of Rabbi Aharon Leib Steinman’s mainstream non-hasidic haredi faction, proclaimed that Hamas rocket and missile fire on the Tel Aviv area are doing something positive for the city – reducing Shabbat “desecration.”

“In violation of the law and the interior minister's order, the supermarkets in Tel Aviv continued to defy the sanctity of Shabbat and open their gates shamelessly in an act of rebellion.…[But now with the missile and rocket fire,] the tourist areas, the cafés, the supermarkets and the restaurants were completely empty.…

“It was as if the sirens sounding in the city of Tel Aviv since the beginning of Operation Protective Edge were avenging the honor of Shabbat, leaving the city streets deserted.…Business owners reported Saturday evening that they could feel the damage in their pockets," the Yated Ne’eman wrote, reportedly with evident satisfaction.

But what of all the sabbath-keeping businesses who suffered losses Saturday night? And those who suffered losses Thursday and Sunday and Monday and the rest of the week? And what about those haredi businesses in nearby Bnei Brak who are also seeing a decline in weekday business due to the war?

Those are questions Yated Ne’eman did ask or answer.

And this year's award for carrying "Gam Zu LeTovah" to the most absurd degree goes to ... Rabbi Shteinman! [raucous applause]

Meanwhile, charedim refuse to desecrate Judaism by their refusal to work, educate or vaccinate their children or do military service.

Should have read "Meanwhile, charedim CONTINUE to desecrate Judaism by their refusal to work, educate or vaccinate their children or do military service."

David, please post that comment beneath the article on Ynet - or if you like, I'll do it.

I don't think it's hyperbole to say that at this point the Haredim are a bigger threat to Israel then Hamas.

Marcus Tullius Cicero (apropos Audrey T. Benjamin's post):

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague."

Yes, but they think we're the traitors.
