Violent Guards and Violent Haredi Extremists Duel in Beit Shemesh

Extremist Haredim were at again in Beit Shemesh, breaking into a construction site that they say contains old Jewish graves. The Haredim found the Arab guards even more violent.

Six people were wounded and 10 were arrested at a Beit Shemesh construction site Monday when violent Arab guards beat Haredi extremists who broke into a construction site where the Haredim claim Jewish graves are being desecrated.

The guards blocked medics from treating the injured, one paramedic said.

One of the construction site’s project managers is Aryeh Golobinzitz, who is Haredi from Jerusalem and who previously has been beaten up by members of the extremist Atra Kadisha sect. Police detained Golobinzitz and another manager for questioning, along with six security guards and two Haredim.

The protesters broke into the site, and the guards beat them, and one of the victims claimed he was hit with a metal rod during the brawl, which is only the latest of several clashes. Police arrested more than two dozen people last month after hundreds of  Haredi extremists blocked roads and set fires.

Leading Haredi rabbis have rejected Atra Kadisha claims that the construction is taking place over Jewish graves.

In the spirit of the Days of Awe and Repentance, rabbis from Atra Kadisha and from the opposing Edat Haredim community agreed that an inspector from Bnei Brak would be present at the site to make sure no Jewish graves are desecrated.

The agreement lasted as long as Rosh HaShanah and the Fast of Gedaliah, the day afterwards.

On Monday, five days before Yom Kippur, the agreement was as worth as much as the Rosh HaShanah vows to be law abiding Jews reaching out to each other with love and understanding.

On Yom Kippur, which falls on Shabbat this year, there probably will not be any protests, but nothing is certain.

    The Haredim would do themselves a great service if they would approach the situation with a formal complaint to mayor / MK’s etc.. Then after no response, act with protest . In this manner their frustration would be understandable.

  2. Ch Hoffman says:

    there are far too many bedbugs on the lunatic fringe (or fringes) of Judaism for the center to hold.

  3. Myriam Obadia says:

    I think we should stop calling "Haredi" the bunch of hoodlums who are trying their best to terrorize the rest of the Jews into submitting to their gangs' decrees. Furthermore, since none of the things they "defend" are in the Torah, they cannot even be called Jews.

  4. Yechiel Baum says:

    they seem fit enough to be able to serve in the Israeli army. Why are they not doing their Jewish callings instead of simply reading about it? Why are these fit men not standing guard protecting our forefathers in Hebron at the Meorot HaMachapelah?
