One Haredi soldier who was persecuted by the anti-military thugs in his community managed to expose them with help from a private investigator
An ultra-Orthodox IDF officer, who was one of numerous ultra-Orthodox military personnel subject to harassment by extremists in his sect, hired a private investigator to expose the people behind the harassment campaign. [...]
In July, extremists published a booklet containing the names, photos and contact details of the most senior haredi figures who promote haredi enlistment, as part of efforts to harass and delegitimize them.
One of the names published was IDF officer Yehudah Glickman. He, along with his wife, were the subject of ceaseless harassment by anonymous people who obtained their phone numbers from the booklet.
The Glickmans received phone calls from people who said they hoped the Glickmans would die quickly, or warned them that they would face harsh justice in the afterlife for their deeds.
Several police investigations were opened regarding the incitement campaign, but so far there have been no arrests or indictments.
As first reported by Channel 2 on Wednesday night, Glickman became frustrated with the lack of progress and hired a private investigator to expose the people behind the harassment campaign.
The investigator, David Gabai, who cost the Glickman and his wife tens of thousands of shekels, was able to gain access to the leaders of the campaign. He recorded four of them discussing efforts to stage protests at Glickman’s home.
“We need buses and a bunch of other things,” said one of the extremists in the recording. “I’m thinking about buying a load of mice and filling up the houses of all these [haredi IDF recruiters] with them,” says another.
“Scorpions,” jokes one, playing off the similarity in Hebrew between the words mouse and scorpion.
So it took a private cop to expose some of the ringleaders. Does that not demonstrate how incompetent the police are when a private eye does a better job than they do? There's need for serious improvement in the police now, and if they really want to prove their efficiency, they'll arrest the extremists ASAP.
