    While the government definitely needs to invest more in civil engineering, vocational training and a middle-ground option on education for the Bedouins and the haredim (I don't believe we can or should put the asylum-seekers in the same category as they don't (shouldn't?) have afoot in the door), the universald raft lawa is affecting many more than those you've described. 80% of those identifying as Haredim are gainfully employed. Many more religious Zionist young men are choosing to defer their service in favor of time in Yeshiva. The ones you describe as recipients of welfare subsidies, not paying taxes, or working are the minority in this story. In essence, those who are being scorned by the masses as free-loaders represent 10-12% of those affected. P.S. "the massive egos of the rebbes"?!?!?!? really?!?!? Have you met them?

Israel’s condemnation of Pride attack is hollow

Behind the pinkwashing, it turns out homophobia in its worst forms exists within the government.
