    Invoke certain rights and responsibilities. People who work for a living understand that rights and responsibilities are two inseparable edges of the same sword. Like the old song, "Love & Marriage", you can't have one without the other. For far too long the so-called "Torah scholars" have been allowed to have the rights without the responsibilities. For too long, these deviants from real Judaism have represented themselves as "the only true Jews", planting intolerance, discrimination and inequality while violating the core concepts of Judaism. I have no problem with them not serving in the military or a Sherut Leumi equivalent, as long as they finance their Torah studies and their oversized families out of their own pockets and not out of mine. He who does not contribute to the state should not be eligible to receive from the state, period.
