Neturei Karta member forces Belgian girls school to accept his sons as pupils

A member of the most anti-Zionist sect of Haredi Judaism forces a Jewish all-girls school to take in his sons as students, and something is very wrong here indeed:
A Belgian appeals court ordered a school in Antwerp to enroll the children of Rabbi Moshe Aryeh Friedman, a haredi Orthodox Jew who has been ostracized for his anti-Zionist views.

The Antwerp Court of Appeals ruled last week that the Yesode Hatora School had no grounds to refuse to enroll six of the eight children of Friedman, a New York-born anti-Zionist activist who in 2006 attended a conference of Holocaust deniers organized by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad in Tehran.

[...] Friedman and his family have been declared persona non grata by some institutions of Antwerp’s Orthodox community.

The school’s refusal prompted Friedman to launch a legal fight to enroll his boys at an all-girls school, a legal process that threatened the Orthodox community’s relative autonomy in education and violated the community’s principle of resolving conflicts internally without involving Belgian authorities.

Friedman registered two of his boys at the Benoth Jerusalem Public School for girls in December after obtaining an injunction from a Belgian judge. Belgian law does not allow gender-segregated schools, but in reality the practice is tolerated as long as it remains unchallenged.
I'm betting that gender segregated madrassas are tolerated in Belgium. For now, what I do know about this awful man besides his kowtowing to Iran is that he claimed he was challenging the segregation of sexes in Haredi communities. Except that when it takes place, it's usually more at the girls' expense than the boys. All he's doing in actuality is discriminating against the girls while simultaneously refusing to turn over a new leaf and apologize for his anti-Israel stances, not to mention his visit to Ahmedinejad.
