Sometimes you have to think very carefully whether or not to react.
The picture above is one such instance. At a Hafganah (demonstration) last week in Jerusalem to which over 1500 persons attended, Chareidi children were seen dressed up in concentration camp uniforms wearing the yellow star.
The charge was against the Israeli State. It was if to suggest that the Israeli State acts and mistreats elements of Chareidi society in some type of oppressive way comparable to Nazism.
I have to say it. This accusation by sectors of the Chareidim, of victimisation by the Israeli State brings the memory of the six million into shame.
Orthodox Jews have never had it so easy. Look at the faces in the pictures of the Chareidi men and you see everybody looks happy and well, and they are supported by the State. The ones who should be accused of intolerance are the Chareidim from Ramat Bet Shemesh who spit and abuse young girls on their way to school and harass women on the buses, readily supported by their champions in Jerusalem.
Shame on them.
It's also up to the police and authorities to bring down the full weight of the law to bear on these criminals.
Instead of placing a ban on the innocuous Mishpacha magazine, perhaps the Rabbanim ought to have banned this mad group of Sikrikim and its bunch of thugs.
The Orthodox world needs proper leadership.
