Posters advertising a massive ultra-Orthodox rally scheduled for this Sunday in Manhattan employ highly inflammatory language against Israel and the Israeli army.

“The evil rulers in the Holy Land want to incite and seduce young men and teenagers to acquiesce to idol worship and to participate in the impure army,” reads one Yiddish and Hebrew poster, a digital copy of which was obtained and translated by the Forward.

Leaders of the Satmar Hasidic community called the protest to oppose the Israeli government’s recent efforts to draft ultra-Orthodox Israelis. Organizers expect upwards of 15,000 ultra-Orthodox protesters in Foley Square in downtown Manhattan at 3 P.M. on Sunday.
