    I have a feeling the "affirmative action" that is going on with Haredim, allowing them to speak up, and even listening to them is creating a "backlash" among the Yevseks who ran the show in '50s and '60s. While the media was looking Yossele Shumaker, they were kidnapping Yemenite children, and coercing traditional Jews change their ways, to become part of a Secularist Jewish culture. Now, when Haredim are allowed to speak up, rather, they have entered the mainstream showing what they can do, they are told to get back into their ghetto. It's not enough that the statistics on educational levels in the schools and contributions to Israeli life. Granted, as they get out of their neighborhoods, they are "affected" by the same diseases the rest of the country likes to ignore. The result is that when Haredim get the illness it is an epidemic, but when Secularists are caught with dirty hands it goes by the board. Gaby, trashing Haredim is not the way to go!
