Occupy Beit Shemesh: Where are the 99% of Charedim who don’t support this?

| |

I told myself that I wasn’t going to be commenting on news this week, but the craziness going on in Beit Shemesh deserves some attention, I have been told that it is not the majority of Charedim who agree with the violence being perpetrated in the name of religion by so called “religious Jews”. I have been told that it’s a very small minority, yet I have not been sent any kol koreh’s signed by our so called Gedolim condemning such distortions of the Torah. I have seen Kol Koreh’s signed by the cream of the crop of gedolim banning concerts, the internet and lettuce – yet when school aged children are attacked for no good reason – I fail to see any outrage on behalf of our Charedi leaders.

If 99% of the Charedi community is against such acts of violence and acknowledges that this is a distortion of Torah values one may think that there would be protests, rallies or some sort of public action taken to make sure that we orthodox Jews are not bunched into the supposedly small minority of people who are doing this.
