I was very distressed to see the size of the riots and especially the number of children involved, where is the chinuch?.January 25, 2021 1:22 pm at 1:22 pm #1942318
A “riot” in Israel usually means burning the garbage and blocking streets. Anywhere else that would be considered a peaceful protest using civil disobedience.January 25, 2021 1:28 pm at 1:28 pm #1942337
@ujm torching buses, overturning police cars, and shooting out windows are hardly peaceful protestsJanuary 25, 2021 2:37 pm at 2:37 pm #1942360
CS: I wasn’t referring to the highly unusual burning of a bus. Bus burnings are hardly a regular occurrence. According to YWN that protest had outsiders who aren’t chareidim or even Frum come to Bnei Brak to stir up trouble.January 25, 2021 2:37 pm at 2:37 pm #1942361rationalParticipant
I was in Me’ah She’arim yesterday and saw some of the disturbances. They have become somewhat routine. It’s nice to see that modern-day yidden, some of the most machmir elements of Jewish society, support dumpster fires, blocking streets, wasting hours of other people’s time, and endangering their health by not wearing masks . This is true yiras shamayim and needs to be reported widely, if only to publicize how good Jews behave.January 25, 2021 3:59 pm at 3:59 pm #1942383
@UJM, the clips showed 97% of the protesters were charedim, and I guarantee that if the outsiders would have said something against Peleg or Rav Aurbach ZTL, they would have been set on fireJanuary 25, 2021 6:14 pm at 6:14 pm #1942392
The clips aren’t necessarily representative.January 26, 2021 5:00 am at 5:00 am #1942550Abba_SParticipant
The problem is the Haradia do not want the Choloni telling them what to do. With the yeshivas shut down the everyones in the street and it’s very easy for a cop to provoke the masses and create a riot.
You can’t enforce the law by force people must want to obey the law and when it comes to covid I think the government is losing the battle for people’s hearts and mindJanuary 26, 2021 9:01 am at 9:01 am #1942574
@Abba: do people like driving at 55 mph on a wide empty road? no but they do so when they see a police car, the problem is that in Israel everything is kolo politics down to the color of the toilet paper you buy.
In Israel you never see a Chardi and a Choloni doing business together because they are too busy arguing whose derech is right.
