Another Week of Anti-Chareidi Proposals And Propaganda


yair-lapidOn Monday, the Knesset fought until after midnight to approve the first reading of the state budget for 2013/2014. Its 83 articles provide a knockout blow for Israel’s poor and chareidi public.

  3. good point yidineh. If they wanted wanted chareidem to service all they have to do is make it more attractive for them i.e. frum working conditions higher income potential etc. and more people would join. Same for jobs. If there were more suitable options people would do it. But that isn’t their goal. They hat Torah and want to get rid of it Chas v’shalom

  4. Just remember they hate all frum Jews. Around 9 to 10 years ago it was the settlers they went after, and now it’s the chareidim.
