Much of the Israeli public would rather Haredi parties be kept out of coalition

As confirmed by a recent polling:
Nearly three-quarters of the non-haredi Jewish population support the exclusion of ultra-Orthodox parties from the governing coalition, the Hiddush annual index on religion and state shows.

The Hiddush religious freedom lobbying group published the index, now in its sixth year, just ahead of Rosh Hashana. The poll is designed to track public opinion on the main questions regarding religion in the public domain.

Seventy-three percent of non-haredi respondents said they support the formation of a government without ultra-Orthodox parties. This included 69% of Likud and Yisrael Beytenu supporters and 92% of Yesh Atid supporters, but only 37% of Bayit Yehudi supporters. Only 10% of respondents who said they voted for ultra-Orthodox parties favored excluding the haredi parties from government.
I honestly think Jewish Home supporters would do better to take the position more clearly that the Haredi parties would be best left out of the government. I think it'd be better to keep the Haredis out too, and not let them swindle the public's money without giving anything in return.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
