“The attack was apparently part of an ongoing battle by extremists against cell phone stores in Chareidi areas that lack a “hechsher” of their liking.”
Sorry YWN this is fake news.
NO ONE approves of what these guys did
BUT this is not a question of “hechsher” of their liking
EVERY single godol and every single beis din in E. Israel have clearly stated the necessity of having a kosher phone
the store keeper should not have been selling these phones; no different than selling treife meat.
Yes we disagree with these assailants, yes we abhor violence
But we do not view this as a question of “hechsher” of their liking
rather that treif is forbidden –January 25, 2023 4:04 pm at 4:04 pm #2159600n0mesorahParticipant
“NO ONE approves …….”
Except the people who believe they did the right thing.
“EVERY single gadol……”
Except for those who did not join in forbidding technology.
Denying that a problem exists is not a solution.
Calling it fake news does not make it untrue.January 25, 2023 6:12 pm at 6:12 pm #2159625besalelParticipant
Zushy, ALL the phones being sold at the target store are filtered – all of them – they just do not have the right hechsher.January 25, 2023 6:12 pm at 6:12 pm #2159628ZushyParticipant
Sorry no mesroah
who are the “Except for those who did not join in forbidding technology.”
Who are you quoting?
There is literally wall to wall consensus here about technology and phones.
No one is denying a problem, but YWN is still reporting fake news. Rather than stressing that treif is forbidden and castigating those who run a non kosher store in a frum area they are focusing on a very small fringe and making the idea of Kosher phones sound like a bizzare and outplaced chumra that only a few keep.January 26, 2023 7:01 am at 7:01 am #2159778banshakParticipant
Zushy , couldn’t have been said better .January 26, 2023 5:44 pm at 5:44 pm #2159931@fakenewsParticipant
You have not addressed what @besalel wrote probably because you couldn’t verify or disprove what he said. Having lived there for a number of years, I can tell you that this happens occasionally where a purveyor of technology doesn’t have the hechsher that is fashionable this month and has a similar attack.
And besides, I am the arbiter o f fake news on the YWN site, how dare you try to usurp me?!?😉
