Vaad HaRabonim respond. ho hum.

Just like to most people the Transportation Ministry's committee recommendation against allowing mehadrin bus lines to operate was expected, as the State cannot really support anything resembling discrimination, the response is also just as expected.

The Vaad HaRabonim of Kosher Transportation has responded by saying that the committee members are all anti-haredi. They paint a picture of haredim being a violent people. No haredim were on the committee, and therefore it is clear that they were never going to actually consider recommending in favor of the bus line and it was all a hatchet job. Nobody is ever forced to separate and it is all done willingly. (I have yet to see them address the instances in which passengers did try to use force to achieve compliance - not even to say those were individuals acting on their own or anything like that)

I wonder how long ago they wrote the response... was it as soon as the committee was formed a few months ago or only after the committee submitted their recommendation?

  1. It was written before the committee was formed...

    They had the nusach ready from a previous committee that dealt with another issue...
