These videos make me sick. I live here, I see it, and it’s sick.
Talk to the chassan and kallah who had a half empty wedding because guests couldn’t make it past the hafganos. Talk to the woman in labor who was delayed on the way to the hospital. Talk to the frum soldiers who are afraid to go home for shabbos in uniform because they live near chareidi neighborhoods. Talk to the businesses in Yerushalayim who are suffering because people are avoiding sitting in hours of traffic to go out at night. Talk to the families who cannot go to the kotel to daven because of the hours of traffic. Talk to the secular college kids who will not get that inspiring Yerushalayim visit, because they were delayed in hours of traffic and shaken by the unruly protesters. Talk to the garbagemen who have to clean up. Talk to the police captains who are struggling to keep their young policemen calm, day after day after day of protests – while being calling vile names, spat at, and mocked by those who chose not to serve.
There is a limit to everything. If things cannot be calmed down quickly, they will chas v’shalom boil over.
I cannot believe that the gedolim are aware of everything that is going on, and continue to support this. It just doesn’t “pass”. Someone is misrepresenting this, and in doing so is taking a tremendous weight on their shoulders.
