Eichler Castigates anti-Haredi Sentiment


MK Yisrael Eichler related to the Beit Shemesh woman who denigrated Haredim in the media, "Here are some legitimate citizens of the State of Israel who have come to settle and buy homes in the land of their forefathers, and in the face of such hatred and animosity, who will defend our rights? Mandela's life was celebrated as he was a champion against the South African apartheid.Well, there is an anti-Haredi apartheid going on in Israel, and the same liberals who castigate racism against PA Arabs and illegal aliens should also stand up against the rampant racism aimed at Haredim."
