    As usual when a Charedi accesses a government program, they are accused of "taking advantage"of it. In a parliamentary system with no majority party, EVERY government is a coalition of parties, each with their own political and social agenda. EVERY government chooses its coalition partners and apportions spending both according to perceived social need and the demands of the parties in the coalition. This is called making POLITICAL CHOICES. Somehow when the economically failing kibbutz movement was subsidized for billions of shekalim that was a "national priority,"but when Charedim get a benefit they are holding the government for ransom. The secular left conveniently uses their frustration at having to give any money to people they hate even though it is the free-will choice of the government elected by all the people. This is a very smelly attitude in a country where the President resigns because of rape, the Prime Minister, Defense Minister and others are routinely indicted for some version of extortion, bribery or other economic crimes and in an economy essentially run by about 20 families and 13 billionaires. Use your own Marxist logic and see how the rulers try to split the ruled by using economic and social jealousy. Another example of the Oligharchy at work. Wake up!

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they truly believe they are not lying.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
