At Least they "Baby-Up" for Israel

Reader comment on item: Happy Israel

Submitted by Jonathan P (Canada), Jun 6, 2013 at 15:21

I don't know why secular Israelis just don't leave the Haredim alone. They may not be the most useful people in the world today, but they really do "baby-up" for Israel, which is more than I can say for the far left. Haredi isolation/contemplation helps them survive.

These wall feminist ladies who wear yarmulke and pray at the wall are an unnecessary irritant. They serve their own needs of self-worth, but do nothing for Israel.

As time passes these Haredim will slowly seep into the general population a bit at a time anyways. For now they are stored up potential for the future.

This obsession the left has with fairness for fairness sake is ill-conceived and only contributes to weakening Israel by lowering birth rates and hastening the demise of the religious component of Israeli society.
