    How perversely misguided and factually incorrect! Fact: Haredi schools in New York are subject to government inspections ONLY in matters of health and hygiene. In London 30 years ago there were still Golf Country Clubs that denied membership to Jews. The Jews opened two Jewish Country Clubs. They are now being sued for being "racist" and only allowing Jewish membership! That is what is happening in Israel. The Haredim established their own schools in response to the rejection of their culture from the State of Israel schools. They are now being called "racist"?! Should the medical department at Hebrew University be forced to accept an individual who wishes to study Law?! That is a true analogy of Emmanuel. State funding you ask?! To all the true racist bigots who wish to deny funding for the study of Judaism- would you cut funding to the Hebrew University studies of Muslim culture?! Would you dare to cut funding to state Arab schools?! The real issue here is an inherent abhorration of the Haredi culture. That is the tragedy of The State of Israel.
