Yesh Atid party chairman and former Finance Minister Yair Lapid vowed to use a “heavy hand” in dealing with charedi protesters if he is elected Prime Minister, following an attack on a secular Israeli woman during a demonstration in Bnei Brak Friday evening.

Demonstrators gathered in Bnei Brak Friday evening to protest the Tel Aviv District Court’s decision to cancel a stop-work order issued on Thursday night which would have blocked infrastructure work for a light rail station during the Shabbos. The station is situated between Bnei Brak and Petach Tikva.

During the rally, a secular woman, 27-year-old Shir Pepperberg, found herself surrounded by demonstrators while driving down Highway 4 through Bnei Brak. The demonstrators began attacking her vehicle until she was rescued by a charedi couple.

  1. Aha, so the Palestinian terrorists he won’t use a heavy hand, but Chareidim he will. What a fool. Just wait till the Shin Daled set their sights on Lapid. It will be a quick downfall from there on. May it happen soon.

  2. He is using an unfortunate incident perpetrated by a few misguided individuals to advance his anti Semitic self hating agenda. In general that protest was a great kiddish Hashem and many choshuva rabanim, roshei yeshiva, and rebbes attended.
