Haredi radio hosts call for boycotting "settlement" products

It looks like the incitement and selfish attitudes are coming to the surface among some of the most insular Haredi representatives:
Two popular ultra-Orthodox radio commentators on Tuesday called on their audience to take “revenge” on religious Zionism by boycotting settlement products.

“We need to think twice about supporting those who hate us. It’s about time we stop being suckers,” one of them, Avi Bloom, said, referring to the Jewish Home party’s insistence that it won’t join a government coalition so long as a law isn’t passed to draft the ultra-Orthodox into the military.

The ultra-Orthodox parties are unlikely to consent to such a move.
Well let's hope not. They're already making fools of themselves as it is.
In an interview with ultra-Orthodox radio station Kol Baramah, Bloom said the agreements between Jewish Home leader Naftali Bennett and Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid actually brought about an opportunity for the ultra-Orthodox sector to “finally” separate from the right and the settlers.

“I think at least from an ideological standpoint, if there is something good to come out of this story it is our liberation from the [fake] ‘bear hug’ with the settlers,” he said. “We need to consider the legal implications [of boycotting settlements] and hit their pockets as hard as possible.”

Bloom suggested that support of the settlements is inconsistent with Jewish law.

“The position of Orthodox Judaism is on this subject is well known — not to provoke the nations,” he said.
Oh, so he's resorting to that victim-blame technique: whatever we do is a "provocation". How unimpressive. And his claim that Orthodox Judaism has such a standing on the issue is a most blatant misuse of the religion as a whole. It's not true what he's saying and there's verses in the Torah to prove that, and the man is really doing a grave disservice to everybody by stooping to such horrible behavior.
