MK Eichler works to stop a visit of MKs to Bet Shemesh

Today's excitement is a visit by MKs from the Knesset Committee for the Advancement of Women to Bet Shemesh. They are coming to Bet Shemesh to see the situation with the signs and stuff first-hand. MK Yisroel Eichler sent a letter around, including to the Chairman of the Knesset, warning of a provocation and impending violence as a result of the visit and demanding the trip be canceled. The Committee head responded that the trip is continuing as planned.

The regular drama is all there, and that does not interest me. They blame the provocation on him for spreading word, he calls them Reform and says they are working with the Reform Movement to impose their lifestyle on Haredim, etc.

Just remember, when the Haredi MKs say that the extremists don't listen to them and are not part of the community and they do not represent them, and all the usual excuses to not bother fighting the extremism, just remember, the Haredi MKs regularly defend them and try to protect the extremists. Instead of letting the MKs go to Bet Shemesh and see the situation first hand and make decisions based on what they see, and perhaps they'll even see the other side's point of view and take it into account, Eichler sent out a letter to protect the extremists and the signs. The Haredi MKs can be counted on, as always, to thwart efforts against the extremist communities and instead continue to protect them.

  1. Eichler should be dumped in Gaza, along with all his friends in Meah Shearim and RBSB. They aren't any better than the Arabs, in temperament. They'll get along just fine.

  3. FOR GOODNESS SAKE!!!! All we're talking about is a few stupid signs put up by people requesting that visitors adhere to their religious rules. Come on it isn't as if they'r killing or hitting people! Why does the whole country have to turn over as if the MK's have absolutely nothing to do with their time; no terrorism, no BDS, no welfare issues etc, the only issue in this problem ridden country is some signs in Beit Shemesh. Eichler is 100% right. And your call for him to be dumped in Gaza? Unbelievable!

    1. Because it is not "just" a few signs, just like a few signs in Ramat Hasharon saying "Do not wear a kippa on the street. Respect our secular way of life" is not just a few signs.

    2. "Eichler is 100% right" ?? Warning of "impending violence" if the MKs visit - that doesn't sound like "just a few stupid signs." Or is the "violence" justified because the female MKs might be in pants - still just "a few stupid signs"??

  4. I think these MKs should take a similar fact finding trip to har haBayit and see where Jews are not allowed to pray. Because they're afraid of a provocation.

  5. Eichler says the extremists don't listen to him - yet he threatens that the extremists will be alerted to show their violent side if the MKs visit. Hmmm.
