I always was under that impression that the Misnagdim took over the fight against the Mizrachi and the National Religious. They have become much more vocal over the last few years, lecturing about the evils of Zionism, how they do not recognize the State, etc. (Just show me the money)
Another impression I had was that both Aish and Ohr Someach were to be supported because they combat Chabad, and show the world how it "really should be done", making Baalei Tshuvah that is. They do not proselytize about the Rebbe, they do not teach Chassidus, they "stick to the basics", just getting them to be Fine Jews.
Was I surprised to see that according to their website, Aish HaTorah is going into the Hesder business, that's right, they're starting a new Hesder Yeshivah.
some of the highlights will include:
לימוד גמרא בעיון עפ"י שיטת "בירור הלכה" ו"הלכה ברורה" של מרן הראי"ה קוק זצ"ל. 1
גיוס צבאי .2
כמקובל בישיבות הסדר בתום שיעור ב' לישיבה אישור של ישיבת הסדר
So, where's the outcry? Where are those Rabbonim who support Aish Hatorah, members of the Charedi mainstream, who are so vehemently opposed to anything Chabad does?
But you already knew that.
