Half of Britain's Jewish population could be Haredi in 2 decades

According to a special report for local Jewish sources, the Jewish population in the UK could be 50 percent Haredi by 2031:
Accelerating birth rates among the strictly observing religious Jewish communities mean strictly Orthodox Jews are expected “to constitute a majority of the British Jewish population before the 21st century is over,” a report from the Institute for Jewish Policy Research says.

If high Haredi birth rates continue, 50 per cent of Jewish children and around 30 per cent of young Jewish adults in the UK will be strictly Orthodox by 2031, the report says.

The report says Orthodox Jewish leaders should take note of the population boom. “The demographic dynamic of this community is conducive to the outbreak of social unrest,” it states, warning of an urgent need for job opportunities. Without these, “the probability [is] that youth will engage in antisocial activities, experience high levels of disillusionment, or abandon the strictly Orthodox lifestyle altogether.”

Haredi communities, or “black hatters” as they have been called, are widely perceived to be deeply conservative and insular – and, some would argue, religiously extreme. The UK, which has Europe’s largest Haredi populations, has large Orthodox communities in north London, Salford and Gateshead.

Its members are accused of shunning many of the trappings of modern life, including television and the internet. An insistence on a predominantly religious education at the expense of more secular studies has resulted in high unemployment rates and benefit dependency, according to its critics.
There's another reason why this could happen: so many of Britain's other Jews left the UK because of rising anti-semitism coming from both Muslims and other Britons, that now, Haredi clans like Satmar - the real troublemakers - are among the few still willing to remain. And if they intend to continue relying on welfare, that's bad news, because it could lead to an increase in anti-semitism that nobody needs, while Muslims may not get the same level of worry. In fact, in the comments section, somebody said:
They have so much in common with strict Muslims I cannot see why they do not like each other. Surprised UKIP aren't on their case demanding they integrate.
I have to admit, that is sloppy, and as bad as Islamofascism is for everyone, it doesn't mean they shouldn't take notice of this isolationist problem as well. But not liking each other? It depends. The Satmar in the USA have already made clear they're supporting Muslims against Israel.

Another person said:
The Haredi are an embarrassment to ordinary Jews who place their allegiance to the country in which they live. Certainly not to their faith, if they still abide by it.
That one's correct too. Exploiting other people's tax money only makes it worse.
