More information please

Mentioned in passing in an article about the 65th anniversary of Israel:
Nor will many of Israel’s ultra-Orthodox Jews participate in the celebrations. They regard the establishment of the Jewish state ahead of the advent of the Messiah, who alone can and will redeem his people, as an affront to God.
So if they think it's an affront to God, why do they live there?

So they can be on the spot when the real deal comes to pass. They were vehemently against the formation of Israel, and are now staunch Zionists. I don't get it either.

So the theological equivalent of lining up with tents and lawnchairs?

Ha ha, very good image. Plus they think they're the ones with the all-access passes, like the ultra Christians.
