terrorists in Mea Shearim
The other day Mk Yaakov "Ketzaleh" Katz went to Mea Shearim to daven in a shul that had been built by his grandfather. While there he was attacked by the thugs of Mea Shearim who call themselves "Sikrikim".
Yaakov Katz has now said that he will not take it sitting down, like others have such as Moshe Gafni, Uri Maklev, and Eli Yishai, but is committed to working to get this group and anybody associated with them listed as a terror organization.
I don't know how he will define who they are and who is included in the group - as far as I know they have no official affiliation as a group, the way Hamas does. Either way, he says he is committed to getting this accomplished by Pesach time. I wish him luck.
Ketzaleh said,"The community is afraid because the police are not there. The police are also afraid of them, for some reason.... this is a group that doesn't keep Torah and mitzvos, but are a group of thugs. They have peyos and beards, but everyone knows they don't keep the mitzvos...I have filed a complaint with the police. I am not Maklev or Gafni. I took this job upon myself, that until Pesach the "Sikrikim" will be declared a terror organization and any contact with members will be considered cooperating with a terror organization..Maklev and Gafni were also attacked, but they are cowards and didn't go to complain, but I won't rest until they are declared a terror organization. We will deal with them all, in a legal manner."
