      Complaint Filed against Jerusalem Eiruv Cutter

      Channel 10 filmed a secular resident of the Kiryat Hayovel neighborhood in Jerusalem deliberately sabotaging the local Eiruv, (a wire running around an urban area making Sabbath carrying of objects permissible). When asked by the crew as to his motivation, he simply responded that he has no regard for the law.

      Hareidi residents of the neighborhood filed a complaint with the police, explaining that "This rampant form of secular coercion and intolerance could lead to physical assault, and must be stopped immediately."
