Anti-military Haredi protestors turn vicious on Holocaust Memorial Day

Just what we didn't need:
The recent arrest of a haredi yeshiva student sparked angry protests across the country on Wednesday.

Moshe Hazan, a 22-year-old yeshiva student from Elad, had refused to report to an IDF induction center, BeHadrei Haredim reports.

Hazan was arrested by Israeli police this week during a vacation in the southern city of Eilat. He is now reportedly being held in an army jail awaiting trial.

Following the arrest, Rabbi Shmuel Auerbach called upon followers to stage protests across the country calling for Hazan’s immediate release.

[...] On Wednesday night around 11:00 p.m., just hours after the beginning of Holocaust Remembrance Day, followers of Rabbi Auerbach gathered for protests in Jerusalem, Bnei Brak, and near Modi’in Illit.

When police arrived to break up the demonstrations, witnesses report that protestors called them “Nazis”.

Police detained only 10 protestors, allowing peaceful demonstrators to remain.

“Tonight they [the police] had a new modus operandi,” said one witness. “They only arrested those who were real troublemakers, something that they did not do in the past."
Well I'm glad the police acted responsibly this time. But what matters is that some of the anti-army demonstrators acted in very poor faith this time, and should be ashamed of themselves. That kind of vileness, while nothing new, is still quite repellent.
