Defense ministry calls off aiding migrants and calls for combatting Haredi incitement against soldiers

Here's two positive steps the defense ministry is taking. First, there's refraining from aiding children of illegal immigrants:
Israeli Defense Minster Avigdor Liberman has given orders to put a stop to a volunteering program involving IDF soldiers playing with children of migrants in south Tel Aviv after the incident caused public outcry, Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth reported Sunday.

According to the report, Liberman personally phoned IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot last week and ordered him to put an immediate end to the program.

“If soldiers have free time, they should help Holocaust survivors or the needy,” he reportedly told the Israel Defense Forces chief, according to Yedioth Ahronoth. “Charity should begin at home.”

The storm blew up last week when Sheffi Paz, a right-wing activist in south Tel Aviv who leads efforts to remove asylum seekers from the area and has previously disrupted refugee gatherings, documented soldiers from the Intelligence Corps playing with African children at a playground in the Shapira neighborhood.
I understand how the opposition feels. While children of illegals may not be to blame themselves, it doesn't help to aid them if it benefits the felonies of their parents.

There's also the decision to crack down on Haredi extremists who threatened IDF soldiers:
Deputy Defense Minister Eli Ben-Dahan has said that the Defense Ministry along with law enforcement agencies will be stepping up efforts to combat the vitriolic campaign conducted by haredi extremists against ultra-Orthodox soldiers. In recent years, radical elements within the haredi community have published flyers, posters, public notices and booklets and placed them in public areas denouncing haredi soldiers and portraying them as pigs and in other offensive ways.

Incidents in which haredi soldiers and officials involved in efforts to increase haredi enlistment are verbally abused in haredi neighborhoods are common, while there have been several instances of physical violence directed at such people. In one of the most serious incidents of incitement, a booklet with the names, contact details and photographs of haredi activists and IDF officers involved in increasing haredi enlistment was published along with inflammatory descriptions of the individuals and their campaign. Officials listed in the booklet subsequently received a series of threats and harassing phone calls, as well as protests outside their homes.

Ben-Dahan, who has been active in increasing measures against such incitement, said in an interview published in Yisrael Hayom that increased efforts are being made to stamp out this phenomenon. According to the deputy minister, steps are now being taken to trace the source of money for this campaign.
Any ultra-Orthodox moonbats who dare antagonize the soldiers should be given a serious fine for their actions. This includes faux-gurus, and their minions. And above all, they should be jailed for their offenses.
