Hey Elyashiv, talk is cheap

Rabbi Elyashiv just came out against giving away any of Jerusalem to our enemies. Click here. Well ain't that grand? He and his ilk discourage their adherents of military age from serving. Better they should sit on their butts "learning Torah" while other young men put their lives on the line to keep Jerusalem Jewish. He and his clique of doddering old fools also gave the okay for United "Torah" Judaism to join the government, making the current fiasco possible. Anything goes as long as haredim get government money (i.e. money hilonim and people like us worked for and paid to the government as taxes) to support their armies of parasites. Statements like this latest from Elyashiv further alienate hilonim, even as their young men increasingly take a page from Elyashiv's book and invent excuses to dodge military service (why should they be suckers while the haredim are safe in their comfy yeshivot?).
When Harav Zvi Yehuda Hakohen Kook zt"l proclaimed an issur against giving away any part of Israel to our enemies, he had credibility with all sectors of society. Why? Very simple. He instructed his Israeli talmidim to fulfill their obligation to serve in Zahal, and they did. They still do, proudly and with distinction. Now, who has the real authentic Torah and whose Torah is hopelessly corrupted by centuries of galut?
Talk is cheap.

An excellent point - we'll see what the chareidi parties do when the new withdrawals come before the Knesset for a vote. Except a flurry of announcements just before it does:
a) No further pressure on yeshivos to teach treif secular subjects
b) A pay hike for kollel batlens
c) An end to the token national service a handful of chareidim do now.
