Haredis complained about restrictions for entering Givat Shmuel parks after acting disorderly there

Residents of Bnei Brak won't admit they have some accountability here:
Inter-communal tensions have been stoked by the city of Givat Shmuel after it gave notice that it is restricting entry to two municipal parks to city residents alone from the middle of July to the middle of August.

The outcry over the decision came because many residents of the overwhelmingly haredi (ultra-Orthodox) city of Bnei Brak, adjacent to Givat Shmuel, take their children to the Givat Shmuel parks during the summer weeks due to overcrowding in Bnei Brak’s parks.

The two parks in question are the Ramon and Elkana parks, and entry to them will be restricted only to city residents between July 23 and August 16 from four o’clock in the afternoon to ten o’clock at night, when children’s activities will be staged.

Anyone seeking to enter at those times will need to present a city-residents cards which are now being distributed.

The decision was seen as discriminatory against the haredi community, leading to a firestorm of protest on Facebook where the Givat Shmuel Municipality posted about the new regulations, and eventually reaching the ears of haredi leaders who have vigorously protested the decision.

One man writing on the Facebook post described the policy as “antisemitism” while another described it as “racist.”

Others welcomed the move, with one man writing that “welcoming guests” requires the guests to behave accordingly.
And that's not exactly what happened in Modiin, where they littered and tried to dictate what everyone should do there. No doubt it's the same problem in Givat Shmuel, so it's understandable why they'd want to restrict access to the parks.

It's offensive any Haredis would even go so far as to exploit antisemitism cards for this topic, because the other guests are as much of Jewish race as they are, and using those kind of assertions only belittles the subject. It's Bnei Brak's city hall that has to take the responsibility to build more parks for their own kind, and at the same time, not turn them into gender-segregated insults.
