When purist and pushing their logic to its limits, the extreme Haredi positions are self-contradictory if implemented. Implementing their militant anti-Zionist stance therefore requires them to ‘do as the Zionists do’. Hurling stones at cars passing through Ultra-Orthodox neighborhoods or brawling with policemen during protest rallies against autopsies are acts which are anti-Zionists, yet at the same time arguably Zionists in their mode of execution. The Haredi men who excel in fast running or wrestling abilities on such occasions are both God-sanctifier and God-desecrators.

Taken from “Body, Violence and Fundamentalism: The Case of Jewish Ultra-Orthodoxy”, By Gideon Aran.

During the eighties and nineties of the last century, the Haredim were aptly defined as a ‘learning community’, where almost all men are full time students at Torah academies.
