Haredis clash with police over badly structured sukkah

There may not have been as many Haredi riots lately, taking away attention from more pressing issues like Islamofascism (which is enough to make one wonder if it was all due to agent provocateurs governing the ultra-Orthodox sects). But here's something where atrocious, insular clans clashed with authorities, enforcing the image they don't care about safety:
Police forces clashed with hundreds of Ultra-Orthodox rioters in Jerusalem, who tried to resist the municipality-ordered destruction of a dangerously built Sukkah, a temporary hut constructed for use during the week-long Jewish festival of Sukkot - in one of the city’s Haredi neighborhoods.

The clashes began early Sunday, after some 200 police officers entered Jerusalem’s Mea Shearim and Beit Israel neighborhoods in order to protect the municipal officials who came to dismantle a Sukkah built on scaffolding 12 meters high on Beit Israel’s Sonnefeld street.

Upon the forces’ arrival, they encountered streets blocked by trash bins that were set on fire, dozens of protesters huddled inside and around the dangerous construct, as well as hundreds of rioters who proceeded to throw stones and garbage bags at the officers.

[...] Police said they assisted the Jerusalem municipality, "in accordance with the law and subject to a court decision, and due to the danger to human life and public safety [that the Sukkah posed].”

“The Sukkah was built at a height on scaffolding and poses a real risk to life and property, disrupts movement on the road below, and endangers the public who come to the medical center on the site,” the police added.
It's just simply sad how these misguided clan members resort to tribalist, sectarian riots, all for the sake of something that's usually dismantled after the holiday's over anyway.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
