    Who write this copy? If indeed Mr. Lapid is attempting to "ease" the entry of . . . into the labor market, what is the term "cracking down" doing here. Are Haredim people that shirk wrok. At least forty perecent are gainfully employed--does that mean Haredi men are unwillint to work. If, indeed, the issue is not being inducted into Zahal could it be that some Haredi men work "for cash only", to avoid the requirement of first serving in the Army. If that is the case than there are more Haredim gainfully employed, then the real number is higher than what the anti-Haredi publicists tell us.. Then, too, if the various items taken from teh Marker regarding the interesnt of haredim to enter the labor market are true, why the infammatory tone of this item. Would seem that the Marker is looking for the facts, whereas this paper continues its "struggle" to prove that Haredim are . . . (I blush to write the epithets).

Bernie Sanders is smart to keep his mouth shut about Israel

The U.S. presidential candidate has the Democratic progressive vote in his pocket and is wise not to reveal that, on the Middle East, he stands more to the right than his fans would like him to.
