A group of possible Satmars not only resent the idea of working for a living, they even reacted to a legitimate argument by making offensive comparisons
A five-minute YouTube video has caused a great deal of controversy this week, after a haredi Jewish group in Rockland County, NY, compared Rockland County officials to Nazis.
The video - produced by the Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council (OJPAC) - primarily attacks a campaign entitled "Block the Block Vote" - a campaign calling to lessen the influence of haredi Jewish voters in Rockland and blaming them for the county's financial crisis.
As the campaign's advertising says, it's not intended to be anti-semitic, but to make clear that abusing people's tax dollars through socialist welfaring is wrong:
"Block The Block" is a political effort, an effort to end the current financial abuse of the Rockland county Community at large by the Orthodox and Hasidic Communities.
Fairness is not anti Semitic. This writer is not attempting to offend and persons, but the current superficial "civility" in Rockland Politics has been masking a barbarity in financial abuse.
...If people do not respect you, and feel you and your money exist only for their benefit, I have little patience for their superficial, and false , good manners. In other words, to fix the issue of the community at large being financially abused, some feelings may end up being hurt.
This effort is in no way anti Semitic, and in fact, the Orthodox and Hasidic Communities collective behaviors are creating an increase in anti Semitic views, and creating a many misunderstandings among the less informed, as to what is , and what is not , the behavior of "Jewish" persons.
I would only take issue with the part about "Orthodox" in itself - it's not the simpler Orthodox who're committing this abuse, it's the ULTRA-Orthodox - the Haredis - who are. The campaigners have a point that socialist abuse like what Satmar's become notorious for abusing can lead to anti-semitism among the less rational. And OJPAC made a disgusting video that refuses to address any legitimate arguments? All they've done is make things worse:
Several local leaders, including Rockland County executive Ed Day and local National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) representative Wilbur Aldridge, stated that the video is unhelpful and further divides relations between the Jewish community and its non-Jewish neighbors.
Correct. One of the commentors
Sorry, but Foley's 100% right. Sponging off of society is denounced by the Torah and is a disgrace to the name of G-d in the world. Get jobs or get out.
Those Haredi residents of Rockland and/or Kiryas Joel who're living on welfare dole should be told to get jobs and pay for their families themselves. Especially Aaron Teitelbaum. He's one isolationist who definitely has to go out there and get himself a job just like many rabbis in ancient times had.
