They sought again to provide the Reform with ammo

If the Reform sect really is such a problem, then obviously, the Haredi opponents at the Western Wall actually condone that problem by causing a ruckus instead of allowing the Lord to judge:
Reform Jews clashed with ultra-Orthodox worshipers and security personnel at the Western Wall in Jerusalem Thursday, after attempting to pray at the site in celebration of newly ordained male and female rabbis.

While members of the group, who fought security guards as they entered the Western Wall plaza with Torah scrolls, claimed they were exercising their right to freedom of prayer, Western Wall administrators accused them of a publicity stunt.
Which the administrators were clearly only too happy to help carry through. If they didn't want anybody to notice, they would've done everything they could to ensure there'd be silence.
According to the ultra-Orthodox Kikar Hashabat website, the group of Reform Jews, accompanied by Women of the Wall — a lobby for women’s prayer rights — forced their way past security guards and entered the open Western Wall plaza where they began to dance, drawing protest from other worshipers.

There were no injuries in the incident, and it ended quickly.

The clashes occurred after an ordination ceremony at the Reform Hebrew Union College.

“The Western Wall belongs to all Israelis… Today we’re celebrating the ordination of the new Israeli Reform rabbis and we wanted to start this special day with pray and by declaring that ‘am Israel chai’ [the People of Israel live] – any type of Israeli,” said Hebrew Union College Dean Rabbi Naamah Kelman, whose daughter Rabbi Leora Ezrachi-Vered was among the graduates.

Israeli Reform leader Gilad Kariv, speaking to Hadashot news (formerly Channel 2), accused the administration at the holy site of thuggery, saying the violence “will not stop us from fulfilling our right to pray at the Western Wall.”
I'm hugely disappointed in the Haredi overlords who believe the site is literally their property for allowing this to go on otherwise unopposed. All they're doing is giving leftists ammunition to use against the right. Yes, seriously, that's what they're doing, and no doubt it's all deliberate on their part.
