Brigadier-General Gadi Agmon: “Ultra-Orthodox campaign against haredi soldiers similar to Nazi propaganda”.
Members of the haredi community refer to ultra-Orthodox soldiers as “hardakim,” taken to mean a “weak-minded haredi” who has betrayed the community.
The word is also a portmanteau of the word harakim, Hebrew for “insects,” and “haredi.”
Brigadier-General Gadi Agmon from the IDF Manpower Directorate, was speaking in the Sub-Committee for Personnel and Training.
He compared the rhetoric of the campaign to the Nazi propaganda newspaper Der Sturmer, noting that that phenomenon was gathering strength in an unprecedented manner.
“We’re seeing efforts to remove haredi soldiers from their neighborhoods, from synagogues and from yeshivot,” said Agmon, adding that the campaign was being conducted across the country in all major haredi population centers.
Haredi kindergartens and elementary schools have also reportedly refused to accept the children of haredi soldiers.

It is a complicated matter to decide who is a Jew, and who is not. I have earlier stated that a “Jew” who rejects Biblical Zionism, is not “Jewish”. But a rebell against God of Israel, a deceiver or simply a pretender.
The people of Israel is a colorful gathering of people. They come from very different backgrounds, after spending over 1900 years in exile in the diaspora.
Then they said, ‘The God of the Hebrews has met with us. Now let us take a three-day journey into the wilderness to offer sacrifices to the Lord our God, or he may strike us with plagues or with the sword.’
Many Ultra orthodox sect support anti-Zionism, the very idea that the state of Israel must be dissolved. One of them, Neturei Karta, even support Iran, and desire that the Islamic republic removes Zionism.
That is a self destructive and devilish view. Because the members of Neturei Karta them selves, will be slaughtered during the last and final Islamic war on Israel.
While Neturei Karta is being branded as “Jewish”, many Israeli’s can not accept that Messianic Jews are “Jewish”. The idea that a Jew named Yeshua can be the Messiah, is portrayed as “anti-Jewish”. Despite the overall majority of Messianic Jews support the state of Israel, do military service, work and pay their taxes.
Kindly accept that Jews who believe Yeshua is he Messiah, are as Jewish as any other person of Jewish origin, that believe in Reformed Judaism.
