  1. truely disturbing that these seemingly religous youths allow themselves to dance with a man like Barkat, who has declared war against religion and the religous. what a chilul hashem!

  2. BH, a big kiddush hashem. #3 it was not the mayor who declared a war against anyone, it was the protestors who declared war on kiddush hashem. He is doing what needs to be done to retore shalom to the ir shalom. He should be commended.
