Violent clashes between Israel Police forces and ultra-Orthodox activists amid a public outcry over the exclusion of women from the public sphere is damaging the image of the Haredi community in the United States, Brooklyn community leaders told Haaretz on Tuesday.
New York Democratic New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind added that "if a young Hasidic man would have spat on or hurt a girl in Borough Park he would have been immediately arrested and handled in the most stern of way." [Source: Haredi violence is damaging Israel's image, U.S. rabbis say]
And in Australia..... they'd be arrested and charged with assault.....
So my question is: Israel.... why are these men allowed to get away with abusing women and young girls? What a chillul Hashem and total embarrassment for all of us.
