Haredi soldier sues cartoonist for incitement

A Haredi soldier is suing a Haredi cartoonist who distributed leaflets that incite against Haredi members of the army:
The soldier is suing the caricaturist for NIS 30,000 (roughly $8,300) in damages, insisting that the drawings have harmed his reputation as well as the reputations of hundreds of other haredim currently serving in the IDF.

According to the indictment, filed with the Jerusalem Magistrates Court, the leaflets were circulated in haredi neighborhoods, as well as in various media outlets, thus inciting hatred, which culminated in verbal and physical abuse aimed at Orthodox soldiers.

The leaflets were said to be demonizing haredi soldiers by depicting them as chasing haredi children with weapons, while tied to a hand representing the Israeli government. The drawing, the indictment noted, were carrying captions exclaiming that haredi soldiers "pollute the environment and cause their parents heart attacks."
That is downright crass and vulgar. Attacking the very same community members who are working to defend those children, and the cartoonist thanks them by inciting? Yecch. This lawsuit is throughly justified.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
