Without "sayng" it, the last paragraph of this item tells us something that denies, at least in part, what the writer wants us "beleive". If, indeed, only a quarter of Yeshiva students are studyng "full time", the other three quarters are likely working, for cash, likely not paying taxes, or Natonal Insurance, or . . . One would assume, too, they are not employed in isolaton, so they do "mingle" with people that are not Haredi, so the contact, for some reason has not caused them to "lose their religion". Indeed, the only thing they doing is violating the rule that insist they cannot work unless they have served in the Army. Then too, if it is so vital that Haredim be brought into the Army, that the committee suggests to cut the service in Zahal to two years FOR EVERYBODY, as if the needs of Israeli Army are less critical today than they were "before". The bottom line is that Haredim do work, and they function far better in the economy than this newspaper is willing to admit.
