Ultra-leftists who don't stand still for the memorial sirens

A writer for leftist Haaretz, of all places, wrote about the subsections in Israel who won't respect the special siren sounded on Holocaust & War Memorial Day, such as Haredis, and amazingly enough, also cites Arabic citizens and ultra-leftists who won't do so either:
These moments of standing and remembering during Yom Hazikaron’s two nationwide sirens, the one that ushers Yom Hazikaron in at night and a second one the following morning, are deeply ingrained in mainstream Israeli culture. But several subgroups – ultra-Orthodox Jews, Arab Palestinian citizens, and, perhaps increasingly, some Israeli ultra-leftists – choose not to participate in the ritual. Haredim in particular have a complicated relationship to Yom Hazikaron, Israel’s equivalent to Memorial Day, and to Yom Haatzma’ut, Independence Day, which began Monday night and runs through Tuesday.
I'm surprised somebody at that otherwise filthy paper - which has a lot of items you need to take with a grain of salt - cares about this, and the editors were willing to greenlight it. I was already aware some Haredis and certainly Muslims wouldn't respect the custom, but maybe the real eyebrow raiser here is the ultra-leftists in Israel who're following suit. This is definitely disturbing, and needs to be dealt with under an improved education system.
