Satmar Sets up ‘Draft Refugee’ Panel to Send Yeshiva Youth to US

This really is Independence Day! Satmar sets up an emergency panel to hustle IDF Draft Refugees’ out of Israel lest they be contaminated by serving the country. Let them be America’s problem.

The anti-Zionist Satmar community in Israel and the United States has set up an emergency “Draft Refugee Committee to save Satmar teenagers from the calamity of having to serve the State of Israel, which Satmar denies, or serve time in a Zionist jail.

A possible draft of Haredi religious youth probably won’t begin for several years, but Satmar is not taking any chances, according to the Hebrew-language website B’Chadrei Haderim.

The Ministerial Committee for Equalizing the Draft met Sunday and is expected to come up with recommendations in less than two months to tackle the problem of hundreds of thousands Haredi  and Arab youth who do not serve in the army or do national service.

There also is another group, almost never mentioned, of upscale spoiled leftist urban dwellers who  do not serve, but they do not have the support system that Satmar provides.

The Draft Refugees Committee, which sounds like something out of World War II, has already published a U.S. phone number for Israeli Satmar youth to phone and receive free advice and help. Confidentiality assured.

So call 718-302-6720 right away, press number 7, and be the first on your Satmar block to really  be independent and flee Israel before it is too late and the gates of Zionism trap you.

One question: What happens is the flight of Satmar youth hastens the Messiah, the condition for Satmar to recognize the State of Israel?

Maybe they should buy a round-trip ticket.

    May it happen sooner than later.

  2. Grace Acosta says:

    LOL, that last line cracked me up! :-D

  3. Singer Sharp says:

    Oh sounds like the media declared El Gore won the elections ….. Lol

  4. What would be the point of a round-trip ticket?? Once they leave, they'll never be allowed back, without going directly to the army, or to jail for dodging the draft.

    Btw, this article really poorly written, and appears to have been proofread by someone whose native tongue isn't English, and it's a poor show for a journalist.

  5. Dorit Tuchmayer Katz says:

    hmmm, maybe they shouldn't be allowed to leave ???

    … from the calamity of having to serve the State of Israel, which Satmar denies, or serve time in a Zionist jail.

    What?
