Anti-military "chardak" posters turn up in Haredi neighborhoods again

The Haredi thugs who concocted the posters inciting against Haredis serving in the army have struck again, and the IDF has condemned them:
The IDF on Sunday denounced posters in ultra-Orthodox neighborhoods vilifying haredi soldiers.

The posters are part of an organized campaign by extremists to delegitimize ultra-Orthodox men who choose to volunteer for military service.

The extremists refer to these soldiers by a derogatory Hebrew acronym meaning “weak-minded haredi,” which is also an amalgam of the words “haredi” and “harakim,” or insects.
It's also a combination of the Hebrew word "chaidak" which means "germ".
Haredi soldiers have complained of harassment and there have been multiple reported cases of enlistees facing physical and verbal violence. Earlier this year a haredi soldier was pulled out of his car and beaten. In another case, several dozen young men set upon a pair of uniformed soldiers walking through the Jerusalem neighborhood of Mea She’arim. As of July the army had received over 80 complaints of physical violence and verbal abuse.

The uptick in attacks against haredi soldiers has been linked by Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon and other officials to the “hardak” campaign.

“The IDF utterly denounces and condemns any violent behavior, physical or verbal, toward those who serve. The IDF provides special support to those who serve in it from the haredi community, due to sensitivity to their position,” the army said in a statement in response to the newest batch of posters.

“The military has set up a 24-hour assistance hotline for haredi soldiers.”

[...] According to MK Dov Lipman, the funding for this campaign may come from abroad.

“I have sources which indicate that the funding is coming from the United States,” he told the Post.
I wouldn't be surprised if anti-war movements were funding some of this sickness, along with the Satmar movement.
