Student Union opens ‘hasbara’ room in effort to fill public diplomacy vacuum.
Israeli Haredi media personalities are calling for a boycott of Judea and Samaria settlement products in response to the Jewish Home party’s position on drafting yeshiva students.
Radio commentators on the Haredi Kol Baramah radio station said it was time for the Haredi community to liberate itself from the settler movement, with which it has a “fake” relationship.
“We need to think twice about supporting those who hate us. It’s about time we stop being suckers,” commentator Avi Bloom said. “When Bennett cries about mothers not being able to sleep at night, you can come and ask him by what right does he not allow Tel Aviv mothers, and now Haredi mothers as well, to sleep at night because of the need to protect some random outpost.”
Kol Baramah commentator Yaakov Rivlin echoed the sentiment. “It’s time to end all these relations with the real estate dealers in the territories,” he said.
A senior columnist for the Hamodia newspaper, Yisrael Hershkowitz, wrote, “The settlements will pay the price for the costly arrogance” of Bennett.
Hershkowitz said companies located in Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria or companies owned by settlers could go out of business if boycotted by Haredim.
