Lapid Continues To Incite Against The Chareidi Population

4

Once again, MK Yair Lapid has spoken out, inciting against the chareidi population. MK Betzalel Smotrich calls it a “bunch of lies” and demands and apology.

Reports were released on Tuesday morning that Likud has suggested a fix to accommodate the chareidi parties regarding their objections to the current version of the draft law. This led to Yair Lapid, who heads the Yesh Atid faction of the Blue and White party, to release statements once again attacking the chareidi tzibur.

Likud simply wants to pass the bill along in its earlier readings in its current state but is leaving a door open to amend it later on. This however has yet to be approved by MK Avigdor Lieberman, who chairs the Yisrael Beitenu party, as Lieberman vowed not to enter a coalition if the current draft law, which was approved by the IDF, is amended in the slightest.

Lapid added, “If you’re called Moshe and you’re an eighty-year-old grandfather who fought in all the wars in Israel, you’ll get a stipend of NIS 4,232. If you’re called Moshe, and you’re a 19-year-old yeshiva student who dodged an army draft, you’ll receive a stipend of NIS 7,800”.

He added, “The exit ticket from prison for Netanyahu also includes the sale of the basic values of the people’s army. If Bibi’s deal with the chareidi parties will pass, anyone with a child who needs to join the army knows that some of their children do not have to enlist because Bibi needs immunity from Litzman and Deri. Lieberman, did not you promise not to change any letter in the draft law? ”

Once again, MK (United Right-Wing) Betzalel Smotrich came to the defense of the chareidim against Lapid, stating, “On the eve of Memorial Day Yair Lapid opts to lie towards inciting against the chareidim tzibur and lomdei torah and cause a rift between us. He said on the radio that an avreich receives NIS 7,800 monthly!! A blatant lie. An imaginary number that has nothing to do with reality. As Jews, we have suffered enough from those who plotted money-related plots against us. Yair, apologize!”

  1. Will every 19 year old Avreich named Moshe please start demanding from Lapid your 7800 shekels, dont worry he can afford it. Will every Avreich NOT named Moshe or 19 years old demand 7800 in discrimination – why should only the 19 years old Moshes get 7800!! ! Lapid you put your foot in your mouth again. Abd this is why you lose.

  2. Actually every student who attends a secular university in Israel is a recipient of an even greater “stipend.”
    Is the actual costs of a university educationin Israel, $4,500/year?…anyone who has paid college tuition knows it’s much higher.
    Yet these students, and their families, receive huge government support by the government subsidizing the vast bulk of university expenses, and those bastions of learning work very hard to keep control over which groups receive these subsidies…witness the attempted stranglehold on accreditation of Ariel University and it’s Medical School, to say nothing about the yeshivas’ paltry subsidies, so begrudgingly given.
    So, when are people going to point out that many groups receive “stipends,” and it’s all for the benefit of a better Israel, and Am Yisrael..we all don’t have to follow one derech to better Our Land. (But certainly Lomdei Torah is the peak and it’s students deserve respect.)
