IDF Using Facebook to Catch Fraudulent Chareidi Draft Dodgers

Sunday, July 31st, 2016

The IDF has caught some 4000 young men, ages 17 – 24, who received draft deferrals after they claimed they lived a Chareidi (Ultra-Orthodox) lifestyle and learned in Yeshiva – but were in fact, doing anything but that, according to a YNet report.

Those receiving the Chareidi deferral are required to learn 45 hours a week in any of the 1000 recognized Yeshivas in Israel.

The IDF Human Resources division said that since they’ve begun stricter enforcement and background checks, they’ve caught 4000 people who received religious exemptions who were actually living completely secular lives.

Most of those caught have already received their draft orders.

The tool the HR division used to catch most of the draft dodgers was nothing more complicated than a Smartphone and Facebook.

Many of those who claimed to be Chareidim and learning in Yeshiva had Facebook pages.

The content of their pages, such as photos on them on the beach, pictures with girls, and pictures in nightclubs, proved that they were living anything but religious lives.

Photos of their friends also gave the HR division a hint as to who else they should look at.

Once caught, the IDF would call the suspected draft dodgers in for a hearing, where they are presented with the photographic evidence and given the chance to explain and defend themselves.

The army prefers to not involve the police, and most end up drafted.

Hareidi-Religious Rioters in Ashdod Block IDF Arrests With Violence

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016

Hareidi-religious rioters in Ashdod blocked IDF military police late Monday night from arresting at least one man who did not show up at an induction center. Dozens of rioters overturned a police car and damaged several other police vehicles by throwing stones at them.

Police said in a statement, “A large number of Israel Police forces were deployed to the scene to extract the military policemen while dispersing the crowd. The police view this incident with the utmost severity and will use all the means at their disposal to locate those involved and bring them to justice.”

Kabbalah Rabbi: Storm Is God’s Reply to Arresting Yeshiva Students

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

The “snow siege” of Jerusalem is a God’s direct response to the recent jailing of yeshiva students who refused to accept draft orders to report for duty in the IDF, claimed Kabbalistic Rabbi Yaakov Addas Sunday.

“There is a general principle that when there is an evil decree, such as a tsunami, everyone must do some soul searching” he told the Kikar HaShabbat Haredi website.

“No one dies because of others, but this is done by God to awaken the world” he explained. “The same thing applies here. Everyone goes through his own soul searching, am I not going to get into that, but besides that, there is a public decree for which the public must do some soul searching.”

He said “it all fits in” when connecting the dots between the storm and arresting yeshiva students for not reporting for military duty.

“Putting yeshiva students in jail was a public sin based on an evil decree, and this whole business [the storm]” is a response,” the rabbi concluded.
