MK Rozbozov: Hareidi Behavior at Wall - Criminal

Chairman Yoel Rozbozov of the Knesset Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Committee reacted to Friday's clashes between hareidi-religious Jews and the liberal Women of the Wall at the Western Wall Plaza in Jerusalem by saying, "I and many others are filled with feelings of rage and anger at the violent way in which the hareidim acted against the women who only wanted to pray at the Western Wall with court approval."

The Yesh Atid lawmaker said it's a shame that the hareidi public does not follow the description of the Torah in the Book of Proverbs, "Its ways are ways of pleasantness and all its paths are peace." He continued, "As chairman of the committee responsible for the connection with the Diaspora, I often find myself embarrased, during overseas forums, by this criminal conduct. I support the women and the police who protected them in their struggle for the character of our society."
