Haredi cult overlords don't want anybody dressing in IDF costumes for Purim

It's not entirely new, but it's still a show of disrespect for the Israeli army they're putting on display:
As the Purim holiday approaches, a group of 35 leading Sephardic haredi rabbis penned a letter expressing their opposition to the popular custom of dressing up as IDF soldiers.

The rabbis wrote that dressing up as soldiers would be improper "at a time when the government is trying to seduce and intimidate the youth," into serving in the army, and alleged that the costumes would legitimize IDF service in the haredi community.

The rabbis wrote that instead of IDF soldiers, "children should be encouraged to dress up like rabbis and righteous people in order to emulate them."

"These costumes have a great influence on the souls of our children and their aspirations and we need to educate them to stay away from this ugliness," added the letter, which was signed by senior rabbis in some of the most prominent Sephardic yeshivas, including Rabbi Shalom Cohen, who heads the Shas party's Council of Torah Sages.

The letter marks the first time that senior rabbis of the Sephardic haredi stream have issued a ban on such costumes. While rabbis from the Lithuanian-haredi stream have been issuing such letters annually since 2013, the Sephardic rabbis are considered more moderate in their attitude towards IDF service.
Well, if anything, it demonstrates how little respect the people associated with the disgraceful Shas party have for those defending the country while they live on socialist welfare. And to imply rabbis are inherently righteous is a very dumb thing to do, because there have sadly been rabbis who've committed wrongs too. Heck, who's even righteous in any era? To put it that way risks pushing for sainthood. That's not the way to go about these issues.

I am Orthodox, and I pray for the IDF
365 days a year, even though I do not
live in Israel [ yet :-) ].

I also do everything I can to encourage
my fellow Jews to pray for the IDF,
for example, these blog articles
