Anti-military Haredis protest yeshiva student's arrest for draft dodging

One yeshiva student is busted and they're bawling over this?
For the first time since the dissolution of the Tal Law, which granted blanket de-facto exemptions from IDF service to Israel’s ultra-Orthodox, a 19-year-old Yeshiva student was arrested and subsequently sent to 14 days in prison for failing to respond to a draft summons.

On Wednesday afternoon, following the arrest, hundreds of Haredim — including prominent ultra-Orthodox leader Rabbi Shmuel Auerbach — rallied outside of Prison Six where the student was being held.

Moshe A., a resident of Kiryat Malachi and student at a Petah Tikva yeshiva, was arrested in his home in the early hours of Sunday morning after he ignored numerous conscription summonses sent to his home.

The student received a preliminary deferment after his initial conscription order prior to the dissolution of the Tal Law. However, following the revocation of the law in July 2012, the student did not respond to the follow-up summons.

“What are the Haredim thinking? That if they don’t respond to the subpoenas, we’ll just continue on our way?” an official from the IDF’s Personnel Division told Channel 2. “We adhere to the prescribed law, and those who don’t come to us — we’ll go to them.” [...]

Auerbach met briefly with the imprisoned student and offered him words of encouragement. Since July 2012, Auerbach has reportedly urged Haredi students to ignore their draft notices.
Oh, so now we know just who influenced the boy. Just the kind of people whom Abe Lincoln would've been outraged by. Auerbach should be charged with undermining the rule of law by encouraging yeshiva students to turn their backs on Israel's safety.

The Jerusalem Post has a video of the protest.
