The Ultra-Orthodox are More Like Islamic Extremists than We Think

HAREDI ISRAELI TERRORISTS….YOU MIGHT BE BETTER OFF JOINING ISIS…

Black Men In Effigy? Israeli Flags Burned? “haredi soldier exterminator”? Perhaps it’s time for an Ark….

LostMessiah, March 29, 2016

For non-Jews the notion of an anti-Israel ultra-Orthodox Jewish contingent is beyond comprehension. It is absurd. When one tries to explain the rationale: something about the Messiah and not being entitled to the land until He comes, not being worthy, not pushing others out, pushing others out with permission, etc etc, there is no explanation that can be adequately worded to make an explanation sensible. You know the old joke, “Ask 3 Jews the same question and get 11 different answers.” The same is true of the rationale for anti-Zionist Jews who insist upon not only living in Israel, not only exploiting the social services Israel has to offer, not only throwing stones at secular Jews on Shabbat, but joining (and to some extent controlling) the government.

The Satmar, whose Rebbe has been denounced by most of World Jewry, likely have one perverse explanation for their anti-Zionist lean. The Belz likely have another. Each one justifying their position the way a rabbi justifies the rape of a child. It’s an abomination. Ultimately one thing is certain, when a Satmar Yeshiva boy (or female rapist) gets himself or herself into trouble, Israel is indeed the Promised Land. It is their safe-have. It is theirs for the protection. It is theirs as Jews in accordance with the “right of return“. But defend the country? Are you joking?

The hypocrisy is astounding!

There is nothing, however, more profoundly disturbing than a photograph of a pseudo Hassidic man, dressed as a soldier burning an Israeli flag, all in the name of celebrating Purim in a costume called, “The Haredi Army Exterminator” replete with toxic gas and other “extermination” services, intentionally aimed at exterminating Haredi “sympathizers” who are willing to do their honorable part in defending the State. But exterminator?

This is wrong on more levels than one can even conceivably imagine. Mein Kampf, Hitler’s thesis upon which his whole plan was based referenced exterminating Jews, many times. And the Haredim, who can’t think beyond their hypocrisy to see the connections? Or, were those connections made on purpose? It is almost like an alternate universe where one hopes to wake up to the sound of Rod Serling announcing, “You have entered The Twilight Zone…”

The ultra-Orthodox Haredim call every single criticism levied upon them and their despicable behavior anti-Semitism. The ultra-Orthodox justify their indignant disgust of uncovering their dirty secrets, with the mere fact that Jews were exterminated at the hands of the Nazis. They lay claim to the notion that Hitler’s actions began as a few innocuous words. Then they have the audacity to say, in no uncertain terms, that criticism begets hatred. According to the ultra-Orthodox, criticism or mere perfunctory comments inevitably turn to outright hate-speech which turns to violence and so on and so on…

Had-Gadya… Had-Gadya…. (explained below)

But, how does this photograph and the explanation behind it not act to justify the sensationalist tactics of Isis and similar ultra-radical terrorist groups. Would it not be reasonable for those contemplating a Jihad to say to themselves, “If the Jews want to kill their own, should we not want to kill them???”

Seeing the photograph (an illustration reads the caption),  of an ultra-Orthodox Haredi man, who lives in Israel, who is protected by our children, making fun of Haredim who have the decency to join the army is a picture worthy of absolute disgust. It paints thousands and thousands of words of hate and intolerance. Our children, who follow the laws of the land, would be the ones to die to protect the lives of this same ultra-Orthodox man and his family. Yet he refuses to join the army? Why? Because of the same nonsense justification that the great Rabbis use to justify their crimes against the children within their community.

Yet he audaciously pokes fun at Haredi Jews who join the army, act as policemen, support the very system that keeps his kinder fed and clothed. And that is okay? No. It. Is. Not. Okay.

What picture are we painting for the terrorists who really want to see us secular and religious Jews dead? Inherent in the desire of every single country in the Middle East and surrounding Israel, which has as its daily vernacular pushing the Jews off into the sea, whether we wear shtreimels or not, is irrelevant. We are all brothers (and sisters) in Judaism. The Haredim will drown the same way the rest of us will drown, at the hands of the radical Islamic terrorists.

Perhaps when G-d promised us that he would never drown us again, a covenant we are to remember each time we see a rainbow, He knew the next time He would need to pick something more painful so that our future generations would know better how to behave? The picture, without even the explanatory article paints more words than one can contemplate. For every single person worldwide who sees it, one can only wonder what thoughts are elicited.

Hopefully, the Israeli government will come up with a category of treason imparted in the practice of burning Israeli flags and poking fun of soldiers in effigy. Perhaps it’s time for Noah to return…

 Had Gadya (“One Kid”) is the last of the songs sung at the conclusion of the seder and tells the story of the little goat bought by father for the mere pittance of two zuzim.
One kid that father bought for two zuzim.
Then came a cat and ate the kid that father bought for two zuzim.
Then came a dog and bit the cat that ate the kid that father bought for two zuzim.
Then came a stick and beat the dog that bit the cat that ate the kid that father bought for two zuzim.
Then came a fire and burned the stick that beat the dog that bit the cat that ate the kid that father bought for two zuzim.
Then came water and doused the fire that burned the stick that beat the dog that bit the cat that ate the kid that father bought for two zuzim.
Then came an ox and drank the water that doused the fire that burned the stick that beat the dog that bit the cat that ate the kid that father bought for two zuzim.
Then came a slaughterer and slaughtered the ox that drank the water that doused the fire that burned the stick that beat the dog that bit the cat that ate the kid that father bought for two zuzim.
Then came the Angel of Death and killed the slaughterer who slaughtered the ox that drank the water that doused the fire that burned the stick that beat the dog that bit the cat that ate the kid that father bought for two zuzim.
The came the Holy One, Blessed is He, and slew the Angel of Death who killed the slaughterer who slaughtered the ox that drank the water that doused the fire that burned the stick that beat the dog that bit the cat that ate the kid that father bought for two zuzim.
