‘Common Enemy’ of IDF Draft Brings Vishnitz and Gur Together

The rabbinical leader of the Vishnitz Chas – the new Knesset law that Haredim must serve in the army just like every Jew in the country.

The two rabbis spoke for approximately 15 minutes, a relatively long time, and spoke “words of Torah and subjects that are on the agenda,” the Haredi website Kikar HaShabbat reported.

The “agenda” is the draft, which has deeply disturbed the Haredi community, and the rabbis expressed their sorrow that the government is trying to take young men out of yeshiva and away from their families to serve the country.

    The majority of Americans are pro Israel, Keep in mind that the obama regime is not , but then all the thinking people already have figured that out. Call obama what you want ,,,I call him and his thugs "The Enemy".

    Why shouldn't they serve their country that was given to them by Hashem?
    Are these rabbi's afraid of not living in their grandious rich life styles while these men serve in their country instead of collecting money for the Rabbi's personal money are listed among the wealthiest men around the world with their tax free money.

    Facts: Hashem told Moshe/Aahron and Joshua to collect Jewish men to serve as soldiers. Are these rabbis (leaches) more important and greater than Hashem and Moshe/Aahron and Joshua, etc?

    These rabbis should be stripped for their self proclaimed titles and also be invited to serve the Jewish State of Israel and lead by example and not as a Jewish parasite like the arab and Christian leaders or be returned to Romanain and Ukraine where they would not have to send Jewish boys to guard their people and become a leach to the Romanians and Ukrainian pagans.

    While in the army, these men can take the place of the Jewish woman and be men.
    Also, they can learn to be respectful and not sex offenders.
