Some Haredis don't recognize Holocaust Memorial and Independence Day

The Jewish Press reported on a survey noting how a lot of Haredis in Israel sadly don't carry much respect for Israel's memorial and independence days:
A large-scale study published by the Guttman Institute on Monday found that most Israeli Haredim do not share the public feeling that Yom Ha’atzmaut—Independence Day—is an occasions for celebration, nor that Holocaust Day is cause for mourning.

The findings are published prior to Israel’s 70th Independence Day and against the background of the lively debate on the issue of the Haredi attitude regarding Holocaust Day and their response to the siren which is sounded across the country on the morning of this day.
Those belonging to the Satmar, Neturei Karta, and possibly even the Jerusalem Faction, are bound to be the worst offenders.
Only about 15-17% of Haredim ages 18-44 celebrate Independence Day in a festive manner. Among adults, the situation is somewhat different: 23-27% identify Independence Day as a holiday. [...]

The study also examined Haredi attitudes regarding the Holocaust Martyrs ‘and Heroes’ Remembrance Day which was held last week: 21% very much agree that it is a day of mourning; 15% quite agree; 24% do not agree so much; and 40% say they do not see Holocaust Remembrance Day as a day of mourning for them.

Among the older generation, age 56 and over, more than half of the Haredim see Holocaust Day as a day of mourning, while among the younger generation, between the ages of 18-24, only a third see Holocaust Remembrance Day as an occasion for mourning.
Again, it's sickening to wonder if the Jerusalem Faction's cultists could comprise a significant sum of the respondents, seeing how opposed they are to army draft. The Satmar and Neturei Karta are already bound to have the worst indoctrination for this callous attitude of the younger generations. Some of this is also the result of the sad failure of the education ministry to monitor and inspect their schools to see how the pupils are being taught.
