The writer is correct, and as an orthodox Jew have no problem admitting. The so-called Haredim are a sect within Judaism, who are out only to gain power and money. We all seem to forget the West European Judaism and only see a propagandistic recreation of a never existed "shtetl" in the utter poverty (in all senses) of Poland, Rumania, etc. Unfortunately the achievements were wiped out by the 2nd World war and every memry is being erased by the Haredim and their helpers. One day reality (lack of funds) will reach the Haredim and the whole structure will crash, but it will be too late for the Jews at large.
