Doesn’t it look like the bus in the photograph is pushing the bearded guy along the slick pavement?
Is the guy drinking a cup of coffee calmly?
No, it’s just a Haredi demonstrator in Mea Shearim, Jerusalem, blocking the bus during a protest against the government proposal to draft Haredim into the military.
It’s a fun way to travel, though, after the rain.
