De Blatt, the Yiddish Weekly Newspaper of the Aronim, published a "Nasty" Headline this past week denigrating the Gedolim of Israel, specifically Harav Shteinman, asking its readers to harass them, because Israeli Gedoilim are of the opinion that all yeshiva boys must register for the IDF!
The law in the State of Israel is that all boys of age must register for the draft, but if they produce a "petur" which is an exemption if they are enrolled in a yeshiva, they are not drafted.....
However, the bachelor, R' Shmuel Auerbach, has ruled that eligible yeshivah boys shouldn't even register. His fanatical violent faction calls itself "Peleg" which means "separated" ..... meaning they consider themselves separated from the rest of the Chareidie world!
The Israeli governments arrests those eligible for the draft, that don't register. There isn't anyone sitting in an Israeli jail that registered and had a "petur" and exemption.
R Aron Teitelbaum himself mocked his own brother, R' Zalman Leib Teitelbaum, Satmar Rebbe of Williamsburg, who backs the "bachelor," stating that there are over 60,000 Yeshiva students learning in Bnei Brak and Jerusalem, and there is no one sitting in jail?
This morning a "Kol Koreh" was distributed in Kiryat Yoel, that the Headline of "Der Blatt" was not the opinion of R' Aron Teitelbaum, Satmar Rebbe of Kiryas Yoel, and denigrating Israeli Roshei Yeshiva is against his teachings.
Even though Der Blatt is his very own Newspaper!
