Hooligans in Meah Shearim on Thursday night targeted a vehicle belonging to the Shomrim patrol, which protects homes N’vei Yaakov and other Jerusalem border communities, often called upon to assist in chareidi areas.
It appears the work of the Shomrim is meaningless for the hooligans of Meah Shearim, who earlier in the day smashed the windshield of a police vehicle and later in the day, painted “Nazis” across the driver’s side of the white Shomrim vehicle, using black spray paint.
The avreich driving the Shomrim patrol vehicle fled the scene and headed to a police station to file a complaint.
Unfortunately, what used to be an oxymoron, ‘chareidi hooligans’ is now a reality, and only after a prominent chareidi businessman intervened, were hooligans persuaded to return files stolen from the police car that had its windows smashed on Thursday morning. Rabbonim in the area have not released statement condemning the action of these hooligans.
