You don't live in Israel so you may not know the statistics. The ultra orthodox (Haredim as THEY themselves refer to their community) are not a small group. They are 15% of the population, make of 60-70% of the Jewish poor. Less than 30% of Haredi men work (don't even ask if their women folk work); almost NONE serve in the military. The Haredim- both Hassidic and Mizrachi, seek only more money from the government whilst adamantly refusing to work or serve in the National/Military service. It is NOT a small percentage of them, but rather the OVERWHELMING majority. This is not slander, it is truth and they themselves admit to this refusal to participate in Israeli society and economy on religious grounds! The are the enemies of Zionism and Judaism, just as the author describes!
