Jabotinsky on Charedim

The word is he said he would deny them the power to vote. What he actually said is somewhat different:

“Internationally, we will announce that those Jews who do not remove the rust of the exile from themselves and refuse to shave their beard and sidelocks (payos) will be second class citizens. They will not be given the right to vote.”

(From “Outside the encampment” Ha’aretz Newspaper Oct 22, 1919)

Big difference. He was speaking of those who wouldn’t want to vote in the first place…
