Haredim Prepare To Exact Revenge On Zionist Orthodox

As it looks more and more like haredi political parties will be excluded from the new coalition government, haredi political leaders have begun to plot revenge on Zionist Orthodox Jews because, as Ynet reports, the Zionist Orthodox HaBayit HaYehudi party is, in their eyes, making that exclusion of haredim possible.
Last week, haredi politicians threatened to support the evacuation of West Bank settlements. Now senior haredi journalists are urging haredim to boycott products made in those West Bank settlements.
Now haredi journalist Yaakov Rivlin slammed Habayit Hayehudi's cooperation with Yair Lapid's Yesh Atid party – and even more so the support party chairman Naftali Bennett received from religious Zionist rabbis in teaming with Lapid.
In an interview to the Kol Barama radio station, Yaakov Rivlin said that haredim should only purchase products made within the Green Line, in Israel proper. He asked haredim to "think twice whether we should support those who hate us beyond that line.”
"There has never been such an act of treason," Rivlin said about HaBayit HaYehudi’s chairman Naftali Bennett’s decision to join the new governing coalition without the haredi parties.
Haredi journalist Avi Bloom urged Sefardi haredi Shas Party and Ashkenazi haredi United Torah Judaism Party members of Knesset to be an aggressive opponents to the new government, joining with the Labor Party to search out and eliminate any preferential funding Zionist Orthodox projects receive from the government.
As an example, Bloom claimed that West Bank settlements receive budgets and military forces that are disproportionate.
"It's time for us to stop being suckers," he claimed.
Haredi yeshivas and outreach projects have for many years received funds well in excess of what they should have received, especially when haredi draft evasion and lawbreaking (the failure to teach the country’s core curriculum, for example) are taken into account. Bloom, of course, did not mention that.
Haredi journalist Yossi Elituv wrote what Ynet calls a “harsh” article against leading Zionist Orthodox rabbis, which was published in the haredi weekly magazine Mishpacha.
"The leaders' silence will not be forgiven," Elituv wrote ominously.
