פלאש 90

Now gentile also know that one can call Jews 'germs' and compare them to infection: the New York Times site published today (Sunday) an extensive article on the campaign of incitement against the haredi soldiers.

The article interviewed, among others, haredi soldiers, members of the Eida Haredis and more.

This is the first time the foreign press elaborates on the incitement campaign which started three months ago by degrading illustrations written by Mishpacha newspaper illustrator, Avishai Chen.

Indeed the incitement campaign brought a wave of hatred against the soldiers and dragged both verbal and physical violence by haredi factors against the soldiers.

More:
• Government passed Recruitment Law: 14 in favor, 4 abstained
• Why I photographed? Soldier from video of pleading child speaks first time
• Plea of child to Harda"k: Abuse or staged video?

The article was written by the New York Times reporter, Isabel Kershner, and it was published today in light of the government's approval of the new Conscription Law - entitled "Shame on Haredi recruits in Israel."

The reporters try to explain to their readers, the meaning of the incitement campaign, and its results: "Haredi soldiers were verbally humiliated and underwent physical disgrace when spit on while going through the neighborhoods in which they live all over the country," the paper said, "Some of them were attacked with stones and tires of their car were punctured. Children of soldiers were rejected by educational institutions, and there is concern that a haredi soldier will harm the matchmaking of his brothers or sisters. "

Reporter Isabel Kershner explained that in recent years there has been tolerance towards these haredi recruits and they received silent support from Haredi leaders when they realized that there are those who can not sit and study all day.

"But ultra-Orthodox extremists were strengthened, as Haredi public tried to defend itself against the possibility of forced recruitment." Elhanan Fromer, who recruits haredim to Shahar tracks told in the article that in light of the campaign and seclusion there has been a sharp decline in recruits.

Pinni Rosenberg tried to explain the purpose of the campaign: "It is not directed against any soldier," he said in an interview, "The purpose of the campaign is to educate the children that they are not suitable for military institutions in Israel." He noted that the rabbis who supported the campaign opposed the violence reported in recent weeks against the soldiers.

Conversely, a haredi soldier interviewed for the article who remained anonymous, said that he experienced harassment on the street only because he was walking with a uniform, "There were some soldiers who had to move to another apartment but this is not the way to take it. The extremists can not defeat us and will get us out of the entire Haredi public."
