Haredis in Mea Shearim attack IDF officer and vandalized his car

This particular IDF official was not Haredi, from what I've learned, but what took place is still very offensive:
Unidentified assailants assaulted an IDF officer who came to visit soldiers in the ultra-Orthodox neighborhood of Mea Shearim on Friday.

The officer, who serves in the Givati infantry brigade and even took part in last summer’s Operation Protective Edge in Gaza, drove in to Mea Shearim to visit two of his charges who are beset by economic woes.

After local residents noticed the officer in his army uniform, he was accosted by a group of would-be assailants, though he managed to evade harm by fleeing the area.

Some vandals then proceeded to smash the windshields and windows of the car belonging to the officer.

The incident was reported by Channel 2. Shortly afterward, the officer filed a complaint with police.

The officer’s mother, a woman identified as “Yael,” told Channel 2 that her son “was hit a few times.”

“He told me that it’s not his body that hurts, but his heart,” she said. “He came away traumatized a bit. He said they tried to lynch him. They threw stones, eggs, used diapers. Some of them even tried to overturn his car. Nobody intervened to try and stop it.”

"He paid a visit to two soldiers who live in Mea Shearim,” she said. “These soldiers are of limited financial means. He went there to see how he could help them with more benefits.”

“At the entrance to the apartment building where they live, two women stood there,” she said. “They were unhappy that he was entering the building while wearing a uniform and the purple beret of Givati.”

“When he came out of the building, he was met by a raging mob,” she said. “He stepped toward his car, closed the door, and locked it. They tried to get at him and pull him outside. They had the look of terrorists in their eyes. They wanted to lynch him.”
It's sickening to think that one day, something awful like that could happen, unless serious measures are taken now. The prime minister condemned the violent attack too. Dr. Haim Shine had something to say about this incident, including the following from the Bible:
At synagogues on Saturday, the Haftarah (a series of selections from the Bible read in synagogue on Shabbat, holidays and fast days) was recited from the book of Amos: "And I will turn the captivity of My people Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall never again be uprooted" (Amos 9:14-15).

When will extremist haredim realize that the prophet is talking about our time? And in order to fulfill Amos' prophecy, we also need a strong army.
Yes, how is it they reject the clear arguments and other views like the above? All culprits discovered, including some children involved, must be arrested immediately and jailed for their horrific behavior.
