Are they really orthodox?

All the peyot, gartels, tzitzit, black hats and black coats mean absolutely nothing except symbols of a huge Chilul Hashem to the world that saw what these “charedim” did in Bnei Brak. Is this what these people learn in the yeshivot that our tax money goes to support?

The going excuse used by people that want to defend these criminals is that the police incited the violence. Can anyone in his right mind believe that the police would just enter a city that was peaceful and observing the laws and just randomly arrest and beat its residents? We don’t live in Somalia or in an ISIS country. Anyone who ventured out to join the protests is to blame for what happened. If you aren’t there you would not be involved. If you see it happening you should walk away from it asap.

Government ministers who defended the troublemakers against the police should immediately resign. They have no credibility anymore. The prime minister, although having done many good things for Israel during his tenure, has outlived his usefulness by not speaking out against the government ministers and officials who are defending the wrong side because of political reasons. It’s time for him to go.

Viewing the bus burning and other violence that occurred one would think that the scene was in Somalia or an Isis country. One wonders if Antifa members and other extreme leftists from the U.S. infiltrated Israel and are part of a worldwide conspiracy to commit anarchy.

Some likened what happened to Kristallnacht in Germany. However, the big difference is that in 1938 it was Nazis that caused the havoc and this time it was so-called orthodox Jews that rampaged and destroyed.

There is no question that all those that caused any damage or incited should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law however one wonders if the full extent is enough.

God save and help Israel to overcome this man-made scourge in our midst.
