The "Jerusalem Faction", the Auerbach-led anti-military and anti-Zionist movement that's caused trouble in the past several months, plans to cause chaos for traffic by the airport
The extremist haredi (ultra-Orthodox) group that brought roads to a standstill across the country in recent months announced plans on Sunday to create further chaos in the run-up to Passover by disrupting traffic around Ben-Gurion Airport.
The Jerusalem Faction is a political splinter group – a breakaway from mainstream Askenazi, non-hassidic haredim – that fiercely opposes any cooperation with the government over issues of military service.
Several yeshiva students associated with the faction have been arrested by military police in the past few months for failing to present themselves for preliminary processing in order to receive ongoing military service deferrals. That led to numerous unauthorized demonstrations in which the Jerusalem Faction blocked major traffic arteries and junctions around the country.
“In light of the escalation of the harassment of the regime against prisoners of the Torah world, it has been decided to expand the protest in these days in order that it reach the ears of the entire world,” announced the Committee for Saving the Torah World, the group associated with the Jerusalem Faction that organizes the protests.
The announcement specified a protest march it plans to hold near the airport “in front of the eyes of foreign tourists who are coming to Israel.”
My guess is they intend with fully deliberate measure to give Judaism a bad name, and lead to anti-religious sentiment among foreigners, to say nothing of desecrate the upcoming holiday. They not only have to be prevented from doing this, but again, the ringleaders have to be arrested and their bank accounts frozen for taking illegal actions.
