In a postive step, Haredis are marking Memorial Day

In a strong sign of improvement, there's ultra-Orthodox representatives now paying respects for Israel's fallen in wars and terrorism:
As Israel marked its annual Memorial Day on Monday, members of the ultra-Orthodox community, seen by many as hostile to the IDF and the secular State of Israel on ideological grounds, organized ceremonies and events to honor 23,544 fallen soldiers and 3,117 victims of terror, the community’s media outlets reported.

Two of the leading ultra-Orthodox Hebrew-language websites headlined their sites with news of ceremonies and other activities relating to Memorial Day.

The Behadrei Haredim website carried a report about ultra-Orthodox members of Knesset attending official ceremonies.

The report noted approvingly that all seven Shas party MKs were expected to attend ceremonies and that while most of the six United Torah Judaism lawmakers would not, it assured readers that they would still mark the solemn day in other ways.

Even so, UTJ’s top lawmaker, Health Minister Yaakov Litzman, attended a commemoration ceremony with Air Force soldiers Monday and laid a wreath as the official representative of the government.
Now that's good. It's a positive sign they recognize why it's vital to respect Israelis who defend the country, and those who lost their lives from the attacks of jihadists. If they keep this up every year, they'll be improving their MO tremendously.
