    Not only does the haredi lifestyle encourage parasitism, with 70% of haredi men not working, it causes higher taxes among the secular, to pay the extortionate demands of the haredi public, these cowards won't even serve in the army which protects their lives. Either EVERY able-bodied haredi man of 18 goes to the army, or he should be required to pay the ENTIRE sum required to train and equip and support a soldier for his entire army service, not only the standard three years, but until he finishes reserve duty. And should the haredi's "proxy soldier" be killed or injured in the line of duty, the haredi should be required to pay total compensation for the rest of his [the haredi's life], with hard labor in prison the alternative. The time has come to get tough with these disgusting excuses for men, let alone Jews.

How the bagel went from shtetls to haute cuisine

A visit to the world's bagel capital is a chance to marvel at how this unassuming Jewish-Ashkenazi food has come from its 17th-century beginnings.
