Danny Danon condemns Haredi attacks on Haredi soldiers

The Likud MK has expressed his outrage at Haredi moonbats who've assaulted Haredi soldiers, asking something be done:
Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon (Likud) on Tuesday called upon Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovich to deal firmly with the growing number of attacks on haredi soldiers that have been reported in recent weeks.

Danon said that recent months have witnessed a significant decline in haredi IDF enlistment, which stood until recently at approximately 15 percent of the possible annual intake.

In a statement to the press, Danon noted that representatives of the haredi community raised the issue of the “aggressive campaign being conducted against haredi soldiers” in a recent meeting between them and the deputy minister.

There have been several incidents in recent weeks in which haredi soldiers have been subject to either verbal abuse or physical assault for having “betrayed” the haredi community and enlisting in the army.

In one incident earlier this month in Jerusalem, several haredi youths pulled a haredi soldier out of his car, tore off his yarmulke and beat him.

The soldier was hospitalized with minor injuries. A similar incident occurred in the capital in May when two uniformed haredi soldiers were attacked and beaten while walking through the haredi Mea Shearim neighborhood.

Danon said that the campaign is designed to delegitimize the notion of IDF service in the haredi community.

“We cannot compromise on the struggle against those who are besmirching military service and criminals who attack IDF soldiers,” said the deputy minister. “We must not stand by and watch the rift in haredi society on the issue of enlistment be accompanied by physical and verbal abuse.”

Danon stated that he had asked Aharonovich to deal decisively and uncompromisingly with those behind the campaign and anyone involved in attacks on soldiers.

The uptick in attacks against haredi soldiers has been linked to a vigorous poster and information campaign that is being waged by hard-line elements in the haredi community in recent months against haredi men who enlist in the Israeli army.

Such men are labeled “hardakim,” a derogatory acronym for a “weak-minded haredi” person and also, an amalgam of the words “haredi” and “harakim,” or insects.
I saw a few of those posters; simply disgusting. Those who publish that kind of dangerous incitement should be arrested and prosecuted.
