Mea Shearim extremists hang more effigies of soldiers in their neighborhood

Some of the anti-military scum littering the Haredi enclave of Mea Shearim in Jerusalem caused another sick moment of disgust:
Police removed an effigy of an IDF soldier that had been hung from a roof in a predominantly ultra-Orthodox neighborhood of Jerusalem on Friday.

As the city celebrated the festival of Purim, officers were booed and jeered at by a crowd on the street as they removed the life-sized, uniformed doll, police said.

“Police removed an effigy of a soldier from a building in the Mea Shearim neighborhood,” a police statement said. “A preliminary investigation found that it was saturated with flammable liquid, apparently with the intent of setting it on fire.”

Police launched an investigation into the incident. A few hours later officers took down a second effigy that had been hung up nearby.

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, who has raised hackles in the ultra-Orthodox community over his support for increased participation in the military among yeshiva students, condemned the effigy.

“The sight of the soldier effigy in Mea Shearim is shocking,” he tweeted. “It is my job as defense minister to protect [all Israelis and] also these agitators. It is my job as a citizen to fight them politically. It is the authorities’ job to lock them up. I expect the leaders of the ultra-Orthodox parties to condemn this act.”
Some neighborhood residents condemned the incident, but if they didn't take it down sooner, and if a whole crowd booed at police for getting rid of such an awful sight, then they're no less guilty than the perpetrators. The only way the Haredi parties in the Knesset can condemn it convincingly is to cut out their opposition to the army draft.
