Absurd: Jerusalem Faction Yeshivos Continuing To Receive State Funding

JERUSALEM (VINnews) — Despite leading numerous raucous demonstrations against the Draft Law and not showing up for deferments at the IDF’s absorption base, the Jerusalem Faction’s yeshivos are continuing to receive government funding. All the other yeshivos have had their funding cut by the high court’s disqualification of the draft law.

The reason for this anomaly is a lacuna in the current law, which states that the budgets will be cut for those who defer IDF service [due to the court’s claiming that the current deferment law is illegal and causes inequalities by placing a larger burden on the rest of the population].

The law however did not mention those who shirk army service rather than deferring, and since they were not included in the law, their budgets have not been cut.

The Ministry of Education claims that it has no authority to cancel budgets and it works based on lists provided by the IDF. However the IDF has only provided lists of those who declared Torato Umanuto and received deferments, while those who did not apply for deferments and did not come to the bases are not on these lists and therefore continue to receive their monthly stipends.

Because they are doing the government’s dirty work for them. Their shenanigans are causing the masses to hate the Chareidim.

Their learning Torah is supposed to protect the whole country. But right now, there is heavy fighting going on in Gaza, and they’re sitting on the floor.
If their way of fighting a war is by sitting on the floor, than the army really doesn’t need them.

Goes to show Hashem hoo ha’elokim he controls all, and what the human would have thought turns out the opposite. Those who “feifed” they are the ones still receiving and those who compromised aren’t. Never give in stick up for what you (daas torah) believe is right. Emes will prevail.
