The state needs more taxpayers and productive members of the economy, not a growing generation of dependents. That's obvious to anyone who can look objectively at how nations function. The Haredim have to figure out a way to copy their brethren in other countries who work, earn a living, pay taxes, and still maintain their observant lifestyle. The reactionary comments from defenders of the status quo in Israel sound much more like every other special interest group worried that its underserved privileges might be threatened by fiscal realities. Secular people don't care how religious or observant someone else is, as long as they contribute equally to society. That's simple fairness and it's all anyone wants. Why is that such a difficult concept?
