A photo was posted on the Internet yesterday showing Finance Minister Yair Lapid and Economy, Trade, Diaspora and Religious Services Minister Naftali Bennett dressed as Nazis, Israel HaYom reported.
The photo was posted in groups on WhatsApp and Facebook as a haredi response to the proposed universal draft bill that would draft some haredim and criminally charge any haredim who dodge the draft.
Lapid and Bennett are reportedly shown dressed as Nazi officers standing under the gate to the Auschwitz burning Torahs and the Talmud while haredi yeshiva students dressed in Auschwitz prisoner uniforms are studying in the background.
The photo was condemned by secular and Zionist Orthodox Jews, including political leaders.
Haredi leaders, however, have not yet condemned the photo-cartoon.
