Anti Draft Demonstrations

demonstrations, Haredim, secular, Jewish State, Jews. Israel,

We've just had massive anti-draft demonstrations by Israel's "Haredi" community (usually, and mistakenly, called ultra-orthodox).

Back in the sixties, American draft evaders chanted "Hell No We Won't Go!!" The Haredi chants were different but the Haredim clearly had as much fun, singing and dancing, although there didn't seem to be any flag-burning (a regular feature of sixties American anti-draft demonstrations).
