Yated Ne'eman Condemns Violence; No Mention of Grossman

The hareidi-religious newspaper "Yated Ne'eman" condemned, Sunday, last week's attack on its former editor, Rabbi Nati Grossman, without mentioning him by name. Grossman was fired, a few months ago, as a result of an ownership change and became the editor of "Hapeles", a newspaper created by the old "Yated Ne'eman" management. Three suspects have been arrested in the attack, which sent Rabbi Grossman to the hospital with light wounds.

"Yated Ne'eman" wrote, "We were asked by the sages of Israel, may they live long lives, to sound a vigorous voice of protest and condemnation against serious acts of violence - verbal and physical - that have been carried out in recent months against those who teach Torah and morality, public figures and politicians.... These acts are opposite to the way of Torah...."
