ZAKA Rescue Services Founder Condemns Haredi Violence

Sunday, February 5th, 2012

Yehuda Meshi-Zahav, Chairman and Founder of ZAKA, lambasted a fringe ultra-Orthodox vigilante group he claimed were responsible for the recent violence emanating from the Haredi community.

The sikrikim are an anti-Zionist vigilante group with ties to Neturei Karta.

Meshi-Zahav made his comments in an extended opinion his Facebook page, where he asked what the difference was between terrorists and Sikrikim. “There would be outcry if terrorists dressed up as haredim, attacked a bus in Mea Shearim, broke its windows and injured innocent men, women and children. However, if haredim themselves did the same in the name of religious zealotry, it would somehow be seen as acceptable by the community.”

“They cry out against blasphemy in every realm,” he continued, “but the greatest desecration of God’s name is their actions, there can be no justification for mindless terror perpetrated against innocent bystanders in the name of ideology.”
