According the Jerusalem Post, Defense Minister Ehud Barak's new political party has a platform that can be viewed as "anti-haredi."
Written by Independence Party faction head Einat Wilf, the platform says:
“The party will work to strengthen Israel economically by advancing initiatives that would increase the participation of Arab and haredi citizens in the work force, based on the principle that in a stable society there must be equal rights and duties.” [emphasis added by FailedMessiah. com.]
The Post also notes that the party's platform also calls for encouraging pluralism in Jewish culture and strengthening Israel’s connection with the Diaspora – two things that weaken haredi political power in Israel.
