One of the reasons the Eda Haredit agreed to the compromise agreement about IDF conversions was economic pressure from the Chief Rabbinate.
In order to abort a mass demonstration scheduled for Wednesday against IDF conversions, Chief Rabbinate kashrut inspectors -- directed by Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar, who is considered a Shas man -- visited factories and slaughterhouses under the auspices of the Eda Haredit. Leaders of the Eda Haredit got the hint and quickly found a way to compromise before endangering the kashrut stamp that provides income for many Eda Haredit supporters.
I've said this many times before, but I'll say it again now: If Jews would simply stop buying any food product or ritual product (like tzitzit) that carries the Badatz Yerushalayim kosher seal, all the riots, thuggery and violence that eminates from Eidah Charedit could be stopped. Put their kosher certification out of business and Eidah Charedit – and its violence – will go out of business. Do it now. And make sure to tell your local supermarket manager or owner that you will no longer be purchasing any product that carries the Badatz seal.
