Another Haredi feud that they can't even explain
Over the past few days, Haredi residents of the Shmuel Hanavi neighborhood in Jerusalem have been running an intense campaign against one of their neighbors, reportedly a mother of 11, who is living alone, and conducting a life style which the residents find objectionable.One might assume they're accusing the mother of running a brothel, but what if it were really a special house for women who want to leave the Haredi lifestyle and find one they feel is better? You wouldn't figure it out by reading it the ambiguous way they've put it. If the mother is really trying to start a shelter house for women let down by the lifestyle, that's far from a crime. The police had to come to cordon the area around the apartment to prevent violence, and the really sad part is that so long as all this ghetto mentality continues to prevail, these stupid riots will keep coming.
Pashkvils (warning posters) were spread around the neighborhood, criticizing women wearing tight clothes, calling them "animals." According to the website Hadrei Haredim, the woman in question is being accused of luring young Haredi women to her path.
A source inside the Haredi community in Jerusalem told the Jewish Press that the woman in question is running a house of ill repute.
It appears that because of their reluctance to "name a spade a spade," the Haredi community is finding it difficult to raise effective public objection to the shameful enterprise in their midst. Some Chasidic rebbes and Haredi rabbis have issued a strong letter against the woman and her "apartment of abomination," but stopped short of saying what type of abomination was being practiced there.
And notice the part about calling women who wear tight clothes (and maybe even women's pants) "animals". That's all you need to know about the dehumanizing POV they're taking in those insular societies towards the fairer sex.
