    I've said this before, and I say this again, that a sixable proportion of Haredim do work, as the fact that so many did come, and other Jews that weren't that scritctly observant came because Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai is revered in Jewish tradtiton. Yes, they work, but "under the table" where you don't see the reciepts, as many more others, the people that do home repairs, the ladies that bake for family celebrations, the DJs, the photographers that work at your family affiars--they do the job, but never pay income tax! You'd do the same if you felt that if you regular salary, the one that is taxed took too much of your salary. In the case of Haredim, not only the tax man would get at them, they would have serve in the Army, one of the "laws" Ben Gurion created to force them to "lose their religion", or so he thought--if you you saw Eskimo Limon, you'd see it in da face. I guess you are not disturbed by the way Secularist youth behave on the streets of Tel Aviv, or brawl at pubs, or . . . I guess that is normal, even "liike the rest of the world", but these vagrants get their money mommy and daddy which makes it kosher, no?
