VIDEO/PHOTOS: Small Number Of Protesters Turnout To Vilify MK Maklev



Despite the phone calls and pashkavilim calling on the masses to participated, some thirty protesters, sikrikim and members of the Peleg Yerushalmi branch of the litvish community participated in a Wednesday evening protest against MK Uri Maklev.

Labeling him a “traitor” and using other harsh terms, the small group gathered outside the Jerusalem home of the Degel Hatorah MK to protest ongoing activities towards passing a new draft law.

Similar protests have recently been held outside the Bnei Brak home of Degel MK Moshe Gafne. In addition, there have been physical assaults against Gafne and Deputy Minister Meir Porush, of the Agudas Yisrael faction of Yahadut Hatorah. They have all been labeled “traitors”, “criminals” and worse.

  1. Peleg is a bunch of dunces who would not recognize the Torah if it were in front of them. They are trying to bring violence in the place of respectible discussion which is the way of the Torah.

    We have seen the greatness of a humble giant like Rav Stieneman tz”l and not we see the contrast of riff raff like these boys! Shame on their rabbis who should never be called rabbis but erev rav….

    just like this erve in the pictures….

    please just a little journalistic integrity their was no such report .
    also the bnei Torah in statements time and again have said they do not back these protests.
    sorry but lugshan kugels “bunch of dunces” happens to be many we have all considered gedolei hador before this machlokes began
    so who’s the dunce?
