This happened in Beit Shemesh
, where there's already these kind of moonbats running amok:
An ultra-Orthodox soldier was threatened and called a Nazi by Haredi men Thursday in Beit Shemesh near Jerusalem, Army Radio reported on Friday.
Army Radio obtained footage documenting the attack, which occurred on Israel’s Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day, or Yom Hashoah.
The footage shows a group of several ultra-Orthodox men confronting the soldier on the street. The targeted soldier serves in the Netzach Yehuda program, which facilitates the integration of Haredi troops into the IDF’s ranks.
“These actions of a radical fringe within the Haredi public cannot be tolerated,” Yonatan Barensky, a reserves colonel who used to command the Netzach Yehuda program, told Army Radio after the incident.
Barensky said “strong action” was needed against the perpetrators. He did not say whether a police complaint had been filed.
In many cases like this, police complaints may not be filed because the victims are afraid it'll make things worse. One of the commentors
How dare these ungrateful pieces of dung, to criticize the men and women of the IDF, the very force that protects them and that even allow them the Right of Free Speech? The fact is they should be shining their boots and thanking them for the protection that they provide to allow them to worship as they please. No wonder there is anti-Semitism around the World when Jews disrespect Jews.
That's a pretty interesting way of putting it. Another said
This is a sad thing. I remember growing up and seeing our young men coming home from Vietnam and hippies spitting on them and calling them baby killers. The true message of the hippies was not love and peace but divisiveness and socialism and progressivism(communism)- not to forget drug abuse! The soldiers follow the orders of the government that the people elect. People always need to support their military, they are out there putting their lives on the line.
Sometimes even Haredis can succumb to drug abuse, I'm sure, and what's clear is that Haredis like the ones seen attacking the soldier long embraced socialism. Another's said
I am beyond livid. If we have their pictures they must be arrested and given serious prison time. Preferably in cells with people that share their thoughts like Hamas. Something must be done. Enough of this crap.
Some of them do indeed belong in a cell with Hamas. Here's another comment
My 2 sons did not leave their lives in U.S. behind to join the IDF and defend these religious radicals; they cut off their own children who dare follow their ideals to defend Israel...as much danger as the Palestinian radicals.
And one more
We shouldn't pretend that it's the majority of Charedim who do this kind of thing; neither should we ignore that the Charedi leadership do not condemn it.
And the worst part of all is how this took place on Holocaust Memorial Day, which I'm sure the thuggish cultists don't teach much about. That's a problem coming when no proper oversight is taken on their education system.
