Leftist NGO Helping Haredi Youths Evade the Draft

Haredi youths protesting outside a military prison south of Haifa, in solidarity with two Yeshiva students who were imprisoned for refusing to report to the IDF recruitment offices last December. Now an anti-Zionist, leftist NGO has made it its mission to help these young men beat the draft.

Young Haredim would become better Jews by learning to act responsibly and by becoming familiar with a part of Israel they’ve only seen painted in hellish colors. The IDF could certainly benefit from an influx of modest young people, who don’t curse, aren’t violent, and adhere to a strong spiritual tradition.

I can understand why a leftist, anti-Israeli Vietnam era wannabes would try to stop that.

  1. Wow. Politics do indeed make for strange bedfellows.

  2. Does anyone have BIBLE knowledge of Hebrew priests were the front line of battles they own against all odds. The priests carried GOD into the battle the HE fought for them. HE always does. GOD'S setting it up again as it has always suppose to have been. GOD'S preparing for the "big one" when all nations will be involved and Israel will win again. GOD is GOD…there is NO OTHER GOD and HE is about to prove it. Get ready…the stage is being set. GLORY to GOD in the HIGHEST.

    Who said that you were to keep a sword in every tent? The Peace of God to those who desire peace as brothers, and war to those who attack their fellow men. To deny this reality weakens any country. God helps him who helps himself.

  4. Yechiel Baum says:

    with these boys bored and is doing bitul Torah and chilul Hasem for not protecting Eretz Yisrael, one may consider why? Is it possible that they have homosexual tendandies so that when in Yeshiva they molest little boys and girls?
