And they clearly have no shame in encouraging them to throw away their futures
A booklet put out by an anti-Zionist hareidi-religious sect is making the rounds of hareidi-religious neighborhoods in Jerusalem. The booklet urges young hareidi men to go to jail rather than to join the army, and assures them that jail is probably not as bad as they believe.
The 44-page booklet opens with an explanation of the history of hareidi-religious non-enlistment, and the legal issues that have led to attempts to require hareidi men to enlist for the first time in generations.
It assures readers that the army does not actually need hareidi soldiers. New technology means fewer foot soldiers are needed, the writers argued. In addition, they said, enlisting hareidi soldiers would be “a headache” for the military, which would need to provide special food and other conditions in accordance with the hareidi-religious lifestyle.
They even suggest the country is turning commie:
“This isn’t a Soviet state yet,” they added, “and there are international protocol set by the Red Cross and the like about treatment of prisoners. And with G-d’s help, all the young men will be released in a matter of weeks or days, after fulfilling that rare mitzvah [commandment] of sacrificing themselves to sanctify G-d’s name.”
Interesting how they seek to exploit aid from the Red Cross for helping them disrespect the law and military, much like United Torah Judaism's
been asking the US administration for help on the same grounds. And the worst part is that those they're asking to help undermine Israeli politics are precisely the kind of people who cannot be trusted to respect Israel or recognize its legitimacy.
