Graffiti in Bnei Brak Against Hareidim in the IDF


Police are investigating the spray-painting of offensive graffiti on the walls of a residential building on Ramban Street in the predominantly hareidi-religious city of Bnei Brak, east of Tel Aviv, against members of the community who serve in the Israel Defense Forces. The building is apparently home to such a soldier.

The act was carried out despite public condemnation by hareidi activists in the city, who compared the behavior to blasphemy and said those who carry it out have no place in the world to come.
