Ponevezh Rosh Yeshiva HaGaon HaRav Gershon Edelstein Shlita commented on the recent attack against a chareidi soldier in Meah Shearim. The rosh yeshiva feels the attack must be condemned by rabbonim from the Eida Chareidis.
The rav adds that the attackers “caused great harm to the Torah world,” adding the attackers are not just “thugs, but fools”.
Rabbi Edelstein expressed surprise that the actions of the zealots have not yet been condemned by rabbonim shlita of the Eida Chareidis, for he feels the actions are unacceptable and must be condemned by the leaders of the tzibur.
