Video: Hundreds in Kikar HaShabbos to Protest Arrest of Bochur


yerushalayim-protest-2[Video below.] Hundreds gathered today in Kikar HaShabbos in Yerushalayim in protest of the yerushalayim-protestarrest of a 19-year-old yeshiva bochur who was thrown in prison for ignoring his IDF draft notice.

About 500 people were in attendance as police officers ruthlessly dragged protesters away from the scene. Police used water cannons and closed surrounding streets.

The 19-year-old bochur agreed to report to the military induction center for his first mobilization order in August 1012 but has since ignored all other summons. On Tuesday, he was sentenced to 14 days in military prison.

Yesterday, hundreds of bnei yeshiva demonstrated outside Prison 6 in northern Eretz Yisroel where the bochur is being held. The protest received the support of Rav Shmuel Auerbach, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Maalos Hatorah in Yerushalayim.

The bochur, named Moshe, is from Kiryat Malachi. He was first arrested by the IDF military police on Sunday night.

    Had you been there ,you would have been on Midyon’s side !

    Oh how times have changed!

    They should be fighting AGAINST the hellenizing State.

  4. Wake Up
    This is only a disguise !!!!!!!!!!!!

    What they’re voting on in the knesset these last few days renders everything else meaningless

    Where is the Shreiii !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. For seventy years these two worlds have been separate and largely misunderstood one another. This is the natural consequence.

    My chiloni coworkers are truly astounded at how normal I am. Because they have had no exposure to our world. They ask the funniest questions out of pure innocence, because all they know is what they hear or read on the news.

    We need to daven. And we need to do our best to find kosher ways to engage with one another, to build bonds. From their perspective, they don’t appreciate the value of Torah, they don’t understand our culture, they don’t understand frumkeight. All they see are an unknown group that is overall below the poverty line, relies on government subsidies, has some bad eggs that make the news, and don’t serve in the army.

    There is no excuse for the police brutality. And our answer must be more than protest. We have to solve the real problem.

  6. I love the editors of this website.
    I post comments disagreeing with the stated viewpoint, and they are censored or omitted, but idiotic comments like #1 get posted.
    As mentioned here months ago, Pravda could not have done it better.

  7. If you don’t like the policy’s of Matzav, then why don’t you start your own website? There is nothing wrong with talking a little sports, to get away from the never ending negative depressing stories that are reported day in and day out.

    Btw, the Jets STINK are going nowhere in a hurry!
