Its time for Israel to pull together a national unity govern- excluding the ultra-orthodox and haredi parties, just long enough to outlaw political activity by tax-exempt religious bodies, as we do in the US. - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    And adopt strict separation of synagogue-and-state. This has to stop - never in Jewish history has there been religious parties controlling Jewish secular life, or a permenent class of non-working Yeshiva loafers who reject work and live off taxpayer's backs. This was created by the greed of the haredi parties. In the US, religions who meddle in politics and elections lose their tax exemptions. No registering for military service or alternate service - no vote and no holding office should be the rule. Enslavement of the Israeli people by these parasites has to end. They are destroying the country. Chabad hasidim work and serve in the army - so can all the rest. Or leave. They are not assets to israelof the Jewish People.
