In another case of Haredis taking isolationist steps, the Haredi-run city of Bnei Brak is changing the names of street signs they consider Zionist
, and replacing them with names of rabbis who probably weren't:
Bnei Brak, Israel’s largest predominantly Haredi city, has announced it is cleansing its street names from any hints of religious Zionism in favor of names of Haredi rabbis, including Knesset Members whose questionable contribution to the country consisted of pumping as much as the taxpayers' money as possible into the coffers of Haredi yeshivas.
Mayor Avraham Rubinstein assured residents that they can voice their objections before the decision is carried out, and that the city even will inform relatives of those whose names no longer will appear.
For example, the street named after Moshe Sharett, Israel’s second prime minister, will disappear.
This is not the first time the city has removed a Zionist name. “Herzl Street” no longer exists. He was not only the founder of modern Zionism but also was fiercely secular.
But a wholesale removal of Zionist names in a city that was built by religious Zionists is another nail in the coffin for co-existence between Haredi anti-Zionists and secular and religious Zionists.
You said it. Their decision even seems to affect female names:
“Mother of Moshavot” Street will changed to “Rabbi Avraham Shapira Street,” named after a Haredi Knesset Member.
Religious Zionists are a dying species in Bnei Brak. One of them, a worker for the city, told the Hebrew-language newspaper Maariv, “Changing the names of streets named after religious Zionists who built the country and who were part of the reestablishment of Israel is tantamount to the expulsion of the remaining religious residents in the city.”
And this is another reason why we need to stop paying the taxes of these anti-Zionist Haredi ingrates. They're doing nothing but mooching money at our expense while doing little or nothing in return to show their thanks.
