The Jerusalem Post got a letter
from a reader following the Beit Shemesh election overturn
In “Court decision over election in Beit Shemesh sparks contention among lawmakers” (December 27), United Torah Judaism MK Yisrael Eichler is reported as calling Israel a “legal dictatorship” similar to the one in Egypt. He says: “The day will come when the secular regime will place the haredim outside of the law, as was done in Egypt, all in the name of democracy.”
On the same date we read “Hassidic leadership preparing for ‘historic’ journey to US to protest haredi draft.” The action of going outside the Jewish community and to non-Jewish areas to protest an internal Jewish matter was once unheard of, especially in the haredi world. Going to a foreign country, even if supposedly only to Jewish communities, means giving aid and support to anti-Israel/Jewish forces.
These same haredim are always complaining about a lack of money to feed their families and sustain their institutions.
Apparently, though, they are able to muster the reported millions needed in the campaign to fight a draft law.
We now see to what extent some people will go to further their self-interests at the expense of national interests.
Even if the funding they're getting for anti-war campaigns comes from donations, it's hypocritical of them to complain of not having enough to feed families while spending so much on projects that do harm to Israel. I have no respect for such disgraceful nutcases.
