    "Haredim make up about 10 percent of Israel's 8 million people. They are a fast-growing and relatively poor social group. Most Haredi men are unemployed and live off state benefits, donations and their wives' often low wages."

    Wow, talk about a bunch of useless drones. They're living off the state, donations, and their wives, wonder who these ultra-Orthodox Jews expect to fight their wars and defend their liberty? Anyone but them I guess.
