It makes no difference whether it's Reform or Orthodox: burning prayer books desecrates faith

Another thin-skinned Haredi drew unneeded attention to Women of the Wall by burning a Reform prayer book:
A haredi Orthodox man burned a Reform prayer book while protesting a women’s prayer service at the Western Wall.

The man, Itamar Gadassi, set the book on fire during the monthly service Wednesday of Women of the Wall, which meets at the wall’s women’s section. Protesters regularly shout epithets at the group and have thrown things at them in the past.

According to a press release from Women of Reform Judaism condeming the incident, Gadassi was stopped by police but allowed to stay at the site.
Again, we have here a case of the police acting cowardly by not banishing the man as he should've been from a site he doesn't deserve to visit. If he doesn't like the prayers as conceived by Reform, so be it, but that's no excuse for mimicking the Nazis and Islam, by burning anything he doesn't agree with. I've said it before, and will again, but it's clear that the Haredis want to give WotW all the attention they don't need.

Did I mention that I question the Haredi respect for the Temple Mount/Western Wall to boot? I honestly don't think they really love it, and that's no joke. I think they just want to demoralize it, and have no interest in letting God judge Reformers and other non-Orthodox sects.

Update: and in case I hadn't gotten around to the deal to make a special section for non-Orthodox sects at the wall yet, here's something about it, noting that the original WotW rejects the deal made, because it regards non-Orthodox in the absurd "separate but equal" status. Honestly, it's okay with me if they feel that way, and if they're let down by Hoffman, that's okay too. I never held any illusions that she was for real on anything.
