Incitement Against Chareidim In Israel Increases: ‘Day When Chareidi Is Murdered Not Far Off’ Warns Journalist

70

JERUSALEM (VINnews) — The judicial reforms proposed in Israel have served as a convenient excuse to attack chareidim, who are perceived as supporters and beneficiaries of such moves. However the current budgetary allocations have stoked the fuel of the anti-chareidi elements in Israel and have led to almost unprecedented incitement against the entire community, amid accusations that they are “robbing the public coffers.”

The tone of the rhetoric has anti-semitic undertones, as witnessed in Tuesday’s demonstration outside the home of Construction Minister Yitzchak Goldknopf in which protesters poured 200 NIS bills on the ground to portray the minister as stealing public resources.

At the same demonstration, Bar Ilan Professor of Economics Elise Brezis screamed at a chareidi that “You’re not Jewish, you’re a cult”. When asked why she had made such an accusation, she said that the chareidim don’t maintain Bein Adam L’Chaveiro, and don’t enlist in the army. Ironically Brezis herself never served in the army and the chareidi she spoke to had done three years of army service, was an electrical engineer and supports 27 secular families- leaving her with no response other than: “You’re not typical.”

 

A scurrilous caricature which appeared in Haaretz Tuesday could have easily passed for an anti-semitic diatribe elsewhere in the world. The caricature, penned by Amos Biderman, portrays chareidi Knesset members carrying stackfuls of money away from the safe as Netanyahu, wearing a shirt labelled “security” tells them that “there’s more”. Goldknopf can be seen carrying a Louis Vuitton suitcase with the money inside.

Other caricatures appearing in media sites portrayed the government members as thieves. In a play on words, a caricature condemned “Ali Bibi and the 64 thieves” for pilfering the treasury.

The incitement has spawned additional demonstrations against chareidim, including one scheduled for Wednesday evening in which protesters will march towards Bnei Brak to protest chareidi allocations. In a play on a popular chasidic story about the Shpoler Zeide, the protesters entitled their demonstration: “This is not Moshke,{Moshe Gafni], this is the Poritz”

Chareidi journalist Yaki Adamker, horrified by the shrill anti-chareidi rhetoric, said on Channel 14 that politicians like Gantz and Lapid who remain silent and do not protest the incitement “could be responsible for the harming and even murder of chareidim in the streets.”

It may feel good to brag but the Charedim will be a victim of their own success. As the Charedi population grows the current economic model will become unsustainable.

The left does what the left does, it’s only when the right does it, that they yell on top of their lungs, about love and stopping the hate.

So much for all that Cholent given out and all that singing in Benai Brak, when there were protests not too long ago. Gotta come up with a better plan.

The whole fight could be ended in 5 minutes if all Chilonim started to keep Torah and learn Torah, with zero exemptions.

Some of us are old enough to remember these cartoons in Israel in the past. This is their way, it isn’t increasing. People have short memories.

Those cartoons are taking it too far, but the message should be absorbed. What other way can they get the point noticed? Talking is futile.

Because they actually want a 20 year old, 120-150 pound yeshiva kid who never exercised backing him up. You know the kid who doesn’t know what a ball is. The guy who thinks his life’s exercise is jumping on Simchas Torah when they sing Moshe Emes. That’s the guy you think can handle a gun or a tank?

No Frum Yid should be surprised about the hate to Charedim from the secular population in Israel.

The foundation of Zionism by Thedore Herzel and the rest of his Atheist cohorts that Jewish people to become full fledge Goyim. In fact, Atheist Herzel writes in his diary that he wishes to convert Jews to Christianity.

The question is only to those Frum MK how come they are still members in the Knesset when we all see the hate from there to Hashem and his Torah.

those that hate dont vote and those that vote dont hate.

It’s about sharing the burden of both ‘Torah’ and the army.

The army has not been accomidating for the chreidim.

What a wonderful idea. So if you’re not a top-notch learner, your Torah and Yiddishkeit and preservation of it is not considered important enough. Complete lunacy you speak of.

The problem with your suggestion is that the 5,000 exemptions will first go to the sons and sons-in-laws of the Roshei Yeshivas, regardless of their Torah scholarship. At the end of the day, there will be no exemptions available for Torah-true Avreichem.
