    Considering how much money Israel puts into those religious groups, considering that they don't need to work nor really be afraid of the future since all is being handed to them on silver platters. Considering they neither need to serve in the army nor respect the army but even attack it. considering that a large part of these religious extremists come from the U.S and actually didn't loose family member in the 2nd world war. If you consider all of this and look at the situation in Israel those extremists shouldn't have dressed up as victims of the holocaust but rather like islamic dhjihadi. Since they are far closer to the view of Hamas and that kind of people that they themselves can recognize after years of in-breeding. Israel wake up! Rid yourselves of extremists that don't even understand what judaism is but just follow blindly like cattle their rabbis. Let them live in illegal outposts, but don't send the army there to protect them. Let them live lives dedicated to the studies of the thora, but don't give them money for nothing. In my religion I was taught to honor women and other people not to call them names or even physically harm them. Those are not religious people! At least not of jewish religion!
