A survey done several years ago showed that 58% of Haredi men do not work. Instead they are supported by tax money and their wives (in that order). Add this to the fact that they do not serve in the army, and to the fact that they reproduce like Palestinians, and one can only conclude that they are parasites, a burden to the Israeli economy and taxpayer, a potential threat to secular Israeli society. Lieberman talks of transferring Arabs; instead we should talk of transfering Haredim - right back to the ghettos and shteytelach of Eastern Europe. I'm sure that the governments of Russia. Belarus, Ukraine, Poland, Hungary etc. will accept them with open arms.
