The extremists could take a lesson from the Amish: Amish take no money from the government. They work, produce, and pay cash for everything, including their own healthcare. Amish are modest in all things and especially about their own behavior. When they interact with seculars, they are quiet and courteous...and when needed in the interests of safety or the public good, they adopt practices--such as reflectors on their horse-drawn buggies. Their children are not segregated. They eat, pray and work together. No group is devoid of bad apples, but there are no stories about Amish spitting on girls or calling them prostitutes. It just wouldn't happen...not part of their culture to demonize others. Perhaps the bad apples in the haredi should study more about modest behavior and focus less on the outward trappings of piety.
