Protest of Half a Million Haredim to Shut Down Jerusalem on Sunday

The Haredi protest against Lapid’s drive to draft them is only the first shot in what promises to be an ugly war.

Following Wednesday’s report that Lapid is literally in the crosshairs of some Haredi zealot who might want to “solve” the problem by assassinating him, assuming the Haredi attack knows in which direction to aim a gun, police have gone on high alert for any over signs of violence.

If Lapid can compromise without losing the faith of his followers, or at least those who have not already given up  him, and if the Haredim can learn the word “compromise,” this ugly war of Jew against Jew can be averted.

That is about as likely as Sunday’s protest turning into a prayer rally for rain.
