Rabbi Aharon Feldman, Rosh Yeshivah of Ner Israel Rabbinical College in Baltimore, recently gave two addresses about the political situation vis-a-vis the charedi community in Israel. Over at Cross-Currents, in a post entitled Wake Up!, Rabbi Yaakov Menken has posted excerpts from these addresses. Unfortunately, the post is closed to comments. I would therefore like to post some responses here, from both myself and Menachem Lipkin.
You keep making the mistake of criticising haredim as religious Jews whereas in fact they are just a cult. As someone who spoke to a haredi MK reported that the reason they don't go to the army is that the mothers are afraid of them being killed
