      Porush: Hareidim Will Seek International Support


      UTJ MK Meir Porush said on Tuesday, "When, in the past, the lifestyle of Hareidi Jewry in Israel was hampered and threatened by anti-religious government legislation, its mentors and Rabbinical leadership turned to international gentile sources in an attempt to have them pressure Israel into granting Hareidim their basic rights without condemning them to emigrate overseas in order to maintain their lifestyle. We have apparently come to such dire straits again, and with draft coercion looming and threatening our ability to subsist and study Torah in the holy land, it would appear that our leadership will resort to drastic measures once again."
