Don’t Coddle Haredim


I read with deep interest the  article about early Israeli elections and the “consequences” for its haredi Orthodox population, including their yeshiva students (“Early Election in  Israel?”, Aug. 17).

The current government has coddled these students long enough, let them serve their country, and when that period  has been fulfilled, they can  return to their studies.

Israel is, and will always be, the Jewish State, but not all Jews are Orthodox. If this blessed country is to survive, all must be prepared to keep it safe from being attacked.

Never miss a story.
