MK Maklev to demonstrators: You are hurting the haredim

Member of Knesset Uri Maklev (United Torah Judaim) has criticized haredi-religious demonstrators who tried to prevent him from going to the Knesset to take part in a Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee discussion on the regulations for the recruitment of women.

Speaking about his haredi status in remarks at the beginning of the hearing, Maklev said, "In our case, any demonstration only raises the walls between those who I represent and those I do not represent."
