The "Ad Kan" Satire Show Does Haredim

The Kan network here in Israel, a state-sponsored and publicly funded broadcaster, airs, but of course, a satirical show called "Ad Kan!" (This Far and No Further").  It stars  Michael Hanegbi and as reported a while back:

In addition to its regular news programming, Kan has a variety of new shows coming to the air...The satirical show The Jews are Coming will migrate from IBA to air on Mondays at 10 p.m.

On Thursdays and Saturdays at 10 p.m. viewers can tune into Ad Kan! (Up to Here), a satirical current events show in which six panelists – three who consider themselves left-wing and three right-wing – argue about topics of the day.

It airs actually now on Tuesday evenings.

Last night they had a monologue which, in part touched on the very annoying Peleg group demonstrations.  But this allowed a swipe at all Haredim, as the Ultra-Orthodox are called.

Screen shots:

On one thing we can all agree: the Haredim are turds.

The Haredim are not kakot (turds)

They are simply different and took themselves out of a democratic society

  and formed for themselves a society that contributes just to and for itself

Okay, they're a bit shitty but that's okay

but one thing we're all in agreement on is that the Haredim are turds.

You laughing?

A really minor point, but you left out the "not" in the translation of the first line.
This would be very a important mistake if the declaration wasn't immediately undone by the rest of the sketch.

Sorry, left out the first screen-snap.
Thank you
