Maklev: Extremists Hurt Chareidi Community

MK (Yahadut HaTorah) Uri Maklev told the media that the extremists in the chareidi community are hurting the community’s image, pointing to the Kikar Shabbos area violence in Yerushalayim on Sunday that resulted in property damage and a cessation of bus service to the area. Close to 50 people were arrested during the day in protests against the exhumation of kevarim at the building site of Ashkelon’s Barzilai Hospital. Others, dozens in actuality, were arrested at protests against excavations in Jaffa, also citing bones are being disturbed.

While defending one’s right to protest in a democratic society, Maklev was less understanding regarding violent protest, those who erase the line between acceptable and unacceptable behavior.

He decried the government decision, stating our fathers were crying from the ground as the bones were disturbed.
