Haredi resident of Bnei Brak arrested for online incitement against IDF soldiers

The police arrested a man in the Haredi enclave of Bnei Brak who compiled material with which to target Haredi members of the army:
Yehuda Kamenitz, a 36-year-old resident of Bnei Brak, is suspected of having managed a database of hundreds of photographs of ultra-Orthodox Israelis in military and police uniforms and having amassed damaging content on them.

At least four IDF soldiers whose photographs Kamenitz had distributed have complained to the police. Kamenitz is suspected of having violating their privacy, distributed computer viruses and insulting a public servant. He was arrested on Thursday, and his detention was extended by three days.

According to a representative of the Israel Police, the suspect is not cooperating and keeping silent during his investigation. His lawyer, Yisrael Klein, said, "There is no real reason to detain him. The attorney general instructed investigating when there is incitement to violence. The court will see that in his investigation, he was accused of inciting to violence. It's not a shame that the police are discovering that it isn't what they thought. They need to come off it, including regarding the arrest."

Klein added, "The material has been around for two years in the possession of tens of thousands of Haredim who think that Haredi enlistment and military participation is inappropriate. It's not the court's role to get involved in matters of where freedom of expression is detained and what damage to privacy is."
The lawyer seems to think there's no big deal in even one particular man committing a felony. It makes no difference how many, every individual who engages in such damaging behavior is committing a serious offense and should be held accountable.
Judge Yehezkel Harel of the Tel Aviv Magistrates' Court decided to extend Kamenitz's detention to Sunday, deeming that the evidence presented at this stage justified a reasonable suspicion that Kamenitz may have committed the crimes of which he was accused and that the investigators need to collect further information with the suspect remains incarcerated. Harel emphasized Kamenitz's lack of cooperation.
Sometimes I wonder if these crackpots really do want to throw away all future for themselves over this religiously based insanity. And alas, my guesses probably aren't that far off.
