The great leaders of the Haredi world in Israel continue to attack the current government in an unabashed manner. According to Kikar Hashabbat, on Thursday night, speaking before thousands of Chassidim, the Rebbe of Belz Rabbi Yissachar Dov Rokeach said the coalition partners were “Truly wicked, they want to destroy the world of Torah, they’re dogs who want to devour and step on Judaism.”
The Rebbe also encouraged his Chassidim to put away their cellular phones during prayer services, because this bothers everybody in the synagogue. He also encouraged them to organize study groups.
Regarding the money his Chassidim are taking from the evil government, the Rebbe said it was their money, which belonged to them as taxpayers. But now, he complained the government wants to take away “even that which we rightfully deserve.”
