Another airline flight made miserable by Haredi troublemakers

An EasyJet flight from Tel Aviv to Luton was turned into utter sickness by Haredis who I'm sure intended to give Orthodox Judaism as bad a name as they could. And in Britain, no less:
Police boarded an easyJet flight from Tel Aviv when it arrived in Luton on Monday to prevent a possible “breach of the peace” by a group of strictly Orthodox Jewish men.

One angry passenger who spoke to the JC said it was “absolute bedlam” on the plane. No arrests were made.
Why do I get the feeling they were let off easy because they were Haredis? If they weren't, I've got a hunch the story would be different.
Tempers are said to have flared prior to the departure of Monday’s 2.55pm flight from Israel, when a group of Charedi men refused to take their seats next to female passengers – apparently on religious grounds.

The flight was full, but the men refused to listen to stewards’ requests to take their seats so the plane could take off.

Eventually, after a 15 minute stand-off, where the men were said to have blocked the aisles, some of the female passengers offered to move from their seats in order for the men to agree to sit down.

The passenger told the JC: “A group of around 10 ultra-Orthodox men caused absolute bedlam on the flight.

"It was infuriating to witness both for passengers and for the stewards, who tried but failed to control them.
Why didn't they call authorities in Israel before taking off? Security should have thrown them off the flight long before. And I have a hunch it was all deliberate.
“When some of the women got up and moved seats to ensure that the plane got to take off, some of these men never even thought about saying ‘thank you’.
Just an example of how ungrateful some of these insular disgraces can be.
“Then after the plane took off one male plugged his phone into the control panel above the stewards’ area.”

This caused the exit lights to come on, the passenger said.

“As the exit lights went on, some of the stewards looked as though they were really quite panicked.

“One cabin crew member eventually went over to the man and demanded he take his mobile and said he was responsible for a possible compromise of safety.”
And this demonstrates how little they care about other people's safety. But the worst part is the failure by police to arrest them:
"Officers attended and escorted the men off the flight preventing a breach of the peace. No offences were found to have been committed.”
Excuse me? They acted disorderly, risked a safety standard, irritated the passengers and all they could do was let them off? Again, I'm sure if these weren't Haredis they wouldn't have been so lenient. But the truly corrosive effect is what this'll do to public opinion in Britain, as now a negative view of Orthodox Judaism as a whole could be enforced by this terrible incident. Any Orthodox adherent who doesn't publicly condemn this is only inviting more harm to a religion they presumably want to uphold as a positive role model.
