IDF almost canceled ceremony for Haredi soldiers on Ammunution Hill fearing extremist rioters, but reversed course

The IDF almost let down some new Haredi contributors by changing the location of a swearing-in ceremony. Fortunately, they've turned around:
The IDF has decided to hold as originally planned the swearing-in ceremony for recruits of the Netzah Yehuda Batallion of Nahal’s haredi unit. The ceremony will take place at Givat Hatahmoshet in Jerusalem on Sunday with relatives in attendance.

The about-face follows public outcry after Ynet’s story on how the IDF cancelled the swearing-in ceremony scheduled for Thursday, out of fear extremist haredim would protest at the event. [...]

Another soldier who serves in the Netzah Yehuda Battalion said the decision "may be interpreted as a capitulation to the haredi street," adding that a "solution could have been found so that the haredi soldiers would also absorb the symbolism and historic importance of Ammunition Hill."
Luckily, it looks like it has been, thanks to the backlash that followed the report. If any Haredi moonbats turn up, the authorities should be ready to deal with them, and soundly. Under no circumstances should they let any shrieking dummies deter them from going through with an important event like this.
