"...(2) their effort to hijack the hitherto secular Zionist state in order to impose Orthodox religious observance and to impose impractical messianic agendas on the state's conduct of relations with the Arabs and other countries.(3) their extremism will unnecessarily alienate Gentiles and more liberal Jews.6) the anti-Zionist haredim resist productive participation in Israeli economy and society, hence they are an enormous burden. Religious extremism was one of the major causes of ancient Judea's defeat by Rome, with tragic results."...

Indeed, their non practical agenda, and the way they force the Government fo Israel to abide by their exigencies, such as paying to forever Yeshivah Students to study their locubrations, while those who really generate the Israeli economy not only do not receive to study decent professions, but also have to sustain this for of parasitism:"...Please do not forget the way many of these religious ones sabotate the Israeli IRS."...

Let's not forget the way "worse" Jews have to go to the Tzavah and harm their minds and bodies, while this "superior" kind (as the way many of them think they belong to) daven and travel all over the world.

And, his Yeshivah college is so expensive. With this $$$ my children go to Harvard Engineering.
