The Ultra Orthodox vs. The IDF: Israel’s Other Religious War

[Music] the agents a little sivaraman Kendall middle only my feelings another holiday you know me other holiday it’s a whole different army when you come in and Orthodox its wither death what’s the for the different head coming to serve God twenty percent of young men lose their religious identity while in the army that’s not a percentage which the committee world would be willing to tolerate [Music] in Jerusalem and recently these streets have been the scene in violent protests and riots but there hasn’t been a Palestinian in sight instead it’s the Orthodox Jewish community were furious of the army to try to send their sons to war in March of 2014 the Israeli government passed the law requiring the ultra-orthodox a community of mostly religious and conservative Jews known as the Harry Dean to serve in the Israel Defense Forces previously her it avoids who studied and religious seminaries or yeshivas were exempt from Israel’s Universal conscription law which requires all citizens from the age of 18 to serve in the Army for two to three years the decision drew fierce opposition from the ultra-orthodox community its leaders ordering that no one should comply I guarantee was not going to happen no your shrivel spoon will be serving the army by coercion you’ll leave the country or go into hiding he’ll go into underground will go into jail we saw this sentiment echoed throughout the heady neighborhoods as anti IDF posters will put up the poster is showing how the Israeli government is forcing the religious Jews to go to the army but the Army’s values are not that of the vote there are many things in the army that go on that are for religious Jew not permitted and that’s what you’re seeing in this picture that the religious who feel like is being pulled into the garbage being what goes on in the army is like garbage to us the ultra-orthodox have always shouted themselves from the influence of the secular world including the military this goes back to the very beginning of the State of Israel when David ben-gurion struck a deal with a heretic community allowing yeshiva students to forgo military service as long as they remained in the achievers protecting and preserving the Jewish religion the exemption has never been popular with the secular community and through the years there have been attempts to try and find a compromise including a deal struck with the IDF and a group of her ready rabbis to creator the nets are yahuda an ultra-orthodox battalion made up of volunteer soldiers but as the her ad population grows at an exponential rate what started as a privileged grant to less than 400 her ready boys has become a loophole for nearly 60,000 The Heretic communities weak presence in the army and in the workforce has prompted criticism from mainstream Israelis who see the community as a financial burden to the country as a whole vice news went to Mia Shireen one of the oldest her ready neighborhoods in Jerusalem and the sights of many anti-military protests we ran into trouble almost immediately the her Adeem are notoriously cloistered and tried to isolate themselves from outside influences our being in the neighborhood was no exception to this rule we jumped out of a car and a guy stopped stared at us started twirling his bed and has now been following a stonker road for the last 10 minutes or so we pulled out the camera and he just launched himself at the cameraman it’s clearly a sensitive community we managed to make her way to meet y’all ich Kraus the unofficial operations director for the ADA had et one of the most vocal and Radical factions of the Haredi community who refused to recognize the authority of the state and are taking action against the new Lord Kaname dalamud plenty should I

Muhannad che cosa galbanum VAR d michigan azim d’etat Hassidim call Akatsuki are banished us with Ursula left la sala the Harry Dean who practiced strict observation of Judaic law which requires a separation of sexes keeping kosher and shunning most modern technology our odds with secular society above all for them is preserving the study of the Torah we spoke to Jonathan rosenbloom an expert in Torah study to see if he could shed some light on the conflict we are a small community in a modern world which is not generally hospitable to religion the yeshivas are not just another institution in the society they are the pupil of the eye of the creating world and are guarded as such for the ultra-orthodox the Torah is the organizing valley of the entire society without it they cease to exist so the idea of the herati boys being drafted out of your Sheba into the secular world of the military is seen as a distraction at best and a corrupting force at worst though the community has ordered its boys to refuse enlistment some of them have already found their way into the IDF joining the Nets our yahuda battalion created by a band of her eddie rabbis in the IDF in 1999 to integrate her eddie outliers into the military the relationship between the military and the karate community in specific frameworks and very worked out and planned environments can certainly be a win-win situation both for the Army for the State of Israel and for the for the karate community and what’s called the knothole Kara Dior and that’s a you Huda brigade that’s mostly made up of boys who come from her ad homes who have really fallen outside of the system prior to going in the army many of these young men were in very deep trouble you know alienated and so forth when they find the self-respect and the discipline that they get in the army they have a much better chance of coming back to full religious observance so those who stray from the righteous path the net say yahuda seem like an ideal alternative the IDF was keen to show us just how I by taking us to meet the battalion we were curious to find out if the recent fur all over the new law would affect even this group of her ready men a group the IDF sees is a rare success story in the effort to integrate the religious and the secular so driving through the Jordan Valley we’re on our way to meet the only ultra-orthodox battalion in the entire Israeli army we’re going to be spending the day with them in the desert watching them running drills shooting guns and saying prayers just finding out what their day-to-day existence is like the battalion is responsible for operations run Janine in the West Bank even though their numbers have grown from 89 recruits in its first year to more than 800 and 2013 they still make up a very small percentage of the total number of combat troops in the IDF hello good morning Alex very simple Java Olimpo Google arica symbol is a motivation older Alex Lea why are they more motivated than other soldiers Oh hiya Lim Chiba eval loss emotion lava golem do be Shiva when olam do battle honda SEMA SEMA julep Oh Matt Sava M parmesan ASIMO pelic mass Lowell Aloha meme oh hello cannot smoke well ahem Rachel OH she needs lofty and automa a motovlog motivates Alberto Vollmer como here although the commander would only hint at it it seemed that the conscription of the ultra-orthodox was on every one of mine but at least within the battalion there seemed to be a balance struck between military service and religious observance after prayers one of the allowances the IDF makes for the her Eddie boys the soldiers began a drill to clear and overtake enemy territory right now we’re taking that hilltop after heavy artillery fire is just plated [Applause] we’ve taken this hill and now we’re gonna take off as the exercise ended we went back up the hill to talk to some of the soldiers about life in the net say yahuda and if things had changed with the new law why did you join the army we completely honest I didn’t very much want to join at first I wanted to be any Shiva I started thinking about it if I’m gonna go anyways then I’m gonna do it all the way and it’s a it’s a it’s a good thing is it’s a beautiful thing you’re protecting your country how do you reckon the experience of Orthodox Jew is different from your average idea so it’s extremely different it’s a whole different army when you come in and Orthodox it’s with a different with a different head coming to serve of God you’re coming with a higher purpose you’re coming with many many more obligations there’s many more restrictions limitations many more challenges you have to sacrifice something you don’t get to study as much as I used to I don’t have time to sit and study I don’t get to see many many traditions that I normally want to do and anything’s our compromise but it’s for a much bigger thing so for a bigger purpose what do the rest of the Orthodox community make of you joining up it depends I mean you know there’s always the really the extremists who are against it and you see somebody in in uniform and you know it’s better stay away from their areas because it gives the actually dangerous they could beat you up they could spit at you have you ever got abuse from the Orthodox community for signing up to the army and no friends we haven’t no friends who were kicked out of their homes oh I have friends who were run away from home because they couldn’t stand living with it or they couldn’t deal with the pressure thing is that you do what you have to do you you represent God and you keep being a god-fearing Junior do what you have to do while The Heretic Communities battle is with the government and the IDF it seems that boys torn between their religion and beauty to serve the military are getting caught in the crossfire though the battalion has made great efforts to maintain her any guidelines even having a kosher cafeteria the boys seem to agree I just wanted to know if you’ve had to make compromises with your religious life in order to fit in with the army [Music] evolution – Athena for these soldiers serving the country comes at a price and although they’re willing to make that sacrifice they know that the core of the hardy community wouldn’t agree what have been your reaction when you saw you know the ultra-orthodox riots a la hora de Vaca him ideologue yeah ahora ven aqui Shahzad an alumnus upon shock now launched on a mission Aeneas it Mishima team Lee have a Shivani I defy the novice at the Hassid colleague rocked up casabas

macho Neiman Abu Taha edit it would a moon a sheila bair elokim the malecón ambush wills a mohanam la cueva Cole recently they’ve gone so far as the turn on their own more and more documented cases have appeared of ultra-orthodox community attacking her ad soldiers it’s clear that the hardline Harry deem would do anything to keep their sons out of the IDF but as instability along Israel’s borders increases the IDF’s need for more soldiers is only growing and with the ultra-orthodox community projected to represent almost 25% of israel’s total population by the late 2050s it’s unlikely that the IDF will back down the government is moving forward with a new conscription law setting yearly goals for her Radian listen with a benchmark of at least 5,200 new recruits by 2017 if that target is not reached the softer goals will become mandates backed up with criminal sanctions for draft dodgers with current her ad enlistments falling below targets it’s clear that the Harry Dean won’t go without a fight [Music] [Music] [Music]

  1. Dieu ,notre Dieu "l'Eternel est un dieu l'Eternel est un" a été révélé au prophète Samuel enfant "talout" le saint Coran par l'épisode de samson "la sainte bible".l'ancien testament ?…

  2. how ironic 🙂
    These orthodox were the main reason why Israel needed a strong Army in the first place LOL

  3. I just noticed more than 90% of young boys in library were wearing glasses obviously due to excessive reading.
    Thousands of young guys with fresh brains which can evolve and contribute to society. Is wasted by reading and cramping books all life.
    This is religion for u.

  4. if you benefit from the protection of the state you have an obligation to contribute to it if not you forfeit that state protection i say get tough with them jail them and make them take part in the states perils as long as you benefit from that state

  5. so you know why it was so easy for the Nazis to murder them will not even take up arms to survive without the secular Jewish army the state would not last kissing time as we say

  6. So when Iran comes to attack Israel what they going to do? oh yeh expect the IDF with limited troops defend them. They're just pussies.

  7. This is what I like about the Ultra Orthodox – they stand up against being pushed into acts of violence & barbaric actions.

  8. This is a palestinian style home, im sure they kicked out whoever was there when they took over palestine. 3:46

  9. While I believe ALL Religions are Psychotic, this is one of the most Psycho Religions in a super-psycho State.
    Support Palestine.


  11. Those kids are all sick individuals. There is no god,just look at the quality of life that they’ve with their neighbors or people with other believes. God is a human fantasy

  12. Israel is run by satanists. We just want to pray in peace and they try to make us join the army and lose our religion. Most soldiers are gay or on drugs

  13. The Ultra Orthodox and no one else should be forced into killing people. In everyone's' mind, we unquestionably all know "Thou shalt not kill." Whether anyone believes in GOD or not, we all are born with a moral compass that tells us what is absolutely wrong and tells us what is absolutely right. I believe its all the (Rothschild Rule of Law) governments are causing us setbacks. I believe that all the people on the flat earth want to live in peace and get along with each other. May GOD help us all live in peace and harmony in Jesus Name.

  14. I never got the argument that religious should be exempt from combat and non-religious/secular and atheist shouldn't. If a nonbeliever dies, regardless of their actions, they experience nothingness, which is worse than hell. At least the religious have a hell to go to and exist eternally, even if it is torment. They may only be sentenced for an amount of time for cleansing of the soul. Nothing is worth sacrificing your one and only limited life.

  15. If they want freedom they must have an army they can’t trust no one because they are surrounded by sharks ready to bite hard

  16. IF 25% loose their religious delusions, its the problem of the ultra orthodox leaders and their stupid "values".

  17. If you are a conscientious objector, hold your head high and your chest forward on the post in the firing line. You should be allowed to thank the firing squad before you leave us to battle on, one down. I respect their belief, that is their right, they are not cowards, they will die for a noble belief.

  18. Jerusalem it is part of Palestinians not for Jewish terrorist army peoples…small little mind Jewish spreading terrorism in whole world…no one can stop them because terrorism is the part their Jewish religion.

  19. Hair like unto wool eyes flames of fire feet like unto fine brass ready to meet Him boys Devils busy doing away with commandment's of The Most High ALL IS WRITTEN repent while you can for no one knows his hour

  20. The phylactery is a tradition created by men who do not understand that what Moshe spoke to the sons of Israel. It is spiritual, not carnal.
    and it shall be for a sign on your hand and for frontlets between your eyes. For by strength of hand the Eternal brought us forth out of Egypt.
    The torah was to be engravened upon our hearts and minds as frontlets to guide us in the way and direct our steps.

  21. the day jesus was sentenced to death not all jewish people were agreed with the conspiracy 😢

  22. The shitty evil Zionists are even oppressing these ultra-orthodox brothers! Zionism is a very dangerous materialistic and demonic ideology! Refrain from recognising the state of Israel and let these ultra-orthodox rule the entire mid-east! These guys are the real Jewish people, the Zionists want to crush their movement, suppress their voice! But my ultra-orthodox brothers, keep fighting the Zionists who oppress you, who don't recognise ur religious freedom… come don't sleep under oppression, fight the Zionists, fight the Muslims!

  23. Where will you spend eternity? None of us are promised tomorrow – if you die tonight where are you going? Once you die your eternal destination is set – there is no purgatory, no second chances. Very serious question with eternal consequences. Going to church, belonging to a denomination, having Christian parents, being a good person, giving money to churches, doing good deeds etc will not save you. The LORD Jesus Christ said REPENT of your sins for the Kingdom of GOD is at hand. We are saved by Gods Grace through faith in Jesus Christ. GOSPEL – For ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). Now REPENT of your sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away (Acts 3:19). Whoever believes in him (JESUS CHRIST), IS NOT condemned, but whoever does not believe IS condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only SON OF GOD (John 3:18). “And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). We are made right with God by placing our faith in the LORD Jesus Christ – In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace. For EVERYONE HAS SINNED; we ALL fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus (Yeshua Messiah), when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are (Ephesians 1:7, Romans 3:22-25). Once you were alienated from God and hostile in your attitude by wicked deeds. But now He has reconciled you in Messiahs physical body through death, in order to present you holy, spotless and blameless in His eyes— if indeed you continue in the faith, established and firm, not budging from the hope of the Good News that you have heard (Colossians 1:21-23). Jesus Christ died for our sins, HE was buried, and HE was raised from the dead on the third day. If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans 10:9-10,13). Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me (John 14:6). For by GRACE you have been saved through FAITH and this is not your own doing; it is the GIFT OF GOD NOT a result of works, so that no one may boast (Ephesians 2:8-9). “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should NOT perish BUT have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him (John 3:16, 17). For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21). HE was wounded FOR OUR transgressions; he was crushed FOR OUR iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:5). Jesus answered and said to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. And when you heard the word of truth (the gospel of your salvation)—when you believed in Christ—you were marked with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit, who is the down payment of our inheritance, until the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of his glory (John 3:3, Ephesians 1:13-14).
    The Deity Of The LORD Jesus Christ – Yeshua Messiah – HE is the image of the invisible GOD, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist (Colossians 1:15-18). HE is Almighty GOD, The KING of kings and LORD of lords who is returning soon. “Behold, the Day of the LORD is coming—cruel, with fury and burning anger—to make the earth a desolation and to destroy the sinners within it” (Isaiah 13:9). HIS first coming was to save mankind – His second coming is in judgement of the world! Please read the bible from end to end asking GOD to give you understanding on how to walk in HIS ways and stay on the narrow path. Love to you! Praying for you and hope to see you in heaven. ❤️

  24. Praying these guys will be drawn to their Jewish Messiah and come to faith in HIM for forgiveness of sins and eternal life through GOD the SON who alone brings this salvation by GODS Grace through faith. Yeshua said no one come to the GOD the FATHER except through HIM. 1 John 2:22-23 – Who is the liar, if it is not the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father; whoever confesses the Son has the Father as well. ❤️

  25. Doesn't' matter what religion. When religion fails to reconcile with changes in society and development, it'll become a burden and become a source of tension and conflict that will hinder any progress. We can't turn back the clock.

  26. for people complaining about Sharia law since 2001 take a look at the toorah and see for ur self how is does describe other relgious grouips; Muslims and christians

  27. Luke 21:24 They shall fall by the edge of the sword and be taken captives into all nations. Jerusalem will be trodden down by gentiles until the times of the gentiles be fulfilled. 😂😂😂😂

  28. There is a COMMANDMENT OF G O D to serve in the military!!! they are the ones who ignore G O D 's law and pick and choose what they do.
