A frum IDF soldier who serves in Galei Tzahal (Army Radio) was attacked by delinquents on Tuesday night the eve of 23 Nissan 5774. The attack took place in the heart of the community, on Rabbi Akiva Street at about 19:00. The victim, Baruch Indig, was heading home when he was targeted. Two Bochrim handed him a flyer and before he could see what was written they shouted at him “Chardak – Get out of our City!”
Indig wrote on his Facebook page “I was standing at a stop on Rabbi Akiva Street wearing my uniform waiting for a bus to get home. Two bochrim approached me. They appeared okay and one even had a beard. They gave me a paper and while I was looking at it they shouted ‘chardak get out of our city – you embarrass Yiddishkheit”.
Indig continued, explaining he had tears in his eyes. He was pained by the response of passersby, who joined in and shouted against him. “This is the first time that I encountered such a situation, hate against a chareidi soldier. They had a look of humiliation and disrespect”.
