The usual routine extremists take has been taken again
A riot Wednesday night involving over 300 haredim, who were protesting limited visitation hours at the grave of Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, resulted in six arrests, police said Thursday.
According to police, a coterie of ultra-Orthodox demonstrators began setting trash bins and tires alight at 10 p.m. to block off Jerusalem’s Bar- Ilan junction in protest of the Sanhedria Cemetery’s evening closing hours, which they said prevented them from praying at the late rabbi’s burial site.
[...] Israel Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld confirmed that the riot had started because the haredi protesters were dissatisfied with the visiting hours. He said six men had been arrested for throwing rocks at responding officers.
Now that's quite a pattern there alright, setting fires that can qualify as arson and downright disturbing the peace. They really do have too much time on their hands, instead of finding a job. Obviously, not even working in a Torah printing house is good enough for them, or they'd learn why their actions are reprehensible.
