Haredi Thugs Physically Attack Leading Rabbi’s Son Over Alleged Graves “Desecration”
Shmarya Rosenberg • FailedMessiah.com

The violent intra-haredi fight over the alleged desecration of ancient Jewish graves at a Beit Shemesh construction site continues to grow even more violent.

Rabbi Asher Sternbuch, a son of Rabbi Moshe Sternbuch, the number two rabbi of the Mea-Shearim-based Edah Haredit haredi umbrella organization, was reportedly phjysically attacked yesterday in Mea Shearim by a group of haredi thugs who allegedly shouted, “Your father is evil! He allows graves be be dug up! in Beit Shemesh!”

Sternbuch father Moshe, a small number of other Edah Haredit rabbis, and most mainstream non-Edah haredi rabbis do not believe there are any ancient Jewish graves at that construction site.

But Edah’s most senior rabbi, Yitzhak Tuvia Weiss – who has also frequently defended haredi pedophiles and child abusers – disagrees.

Asra Kadisha, the so-called graves protection subsidiary of Edah Haredit that, according to Israeli media reports, acts as a criminal extortion ring, is said to loyal to Weiss.

Two weeks ago, some of its thugs allegedly savagely beat the elderly developer of the Beit Shemesh site in his Jerusalem home, leaving him hospitalized.

Then last week, hundreds of haredim sympathetic to Asra Kadisha rioted over four days at the Beit Shemesh site and for one day in Jerusalem (please see the posts linked below). Almost 40 haredim were arrested, many of whom are still in jail.

The thugs who attacked Asher Sternbuch yesterday are likely part of Asra Kadisha.

The Israeli haredi news website B’Hadrei Haredim reported that Sternbuch was walking near the open air market in Mea Shearim. As he approached the small synagogues that border it, he saw a group of haredi thugs coming toward him. They began shouting at him: "You are a criminal and evil, the son of a father who is a criminal and evil! He allows graves to be dug up in Beit Shemesh! Get out!”

Sternbuch tried to get away but was unable to do so. The thugs thugs grabbed his hat and threw it in the air. Others threw trash cans and dirty diapers at Sternbuch as he tried unsuccessfully to enter the courtyard of a Toldot Aharon hasid in the hope of finding shelter.

Before Sternbuch could be seriously hurt, a bystander who was armed shouted, "Come here! Arrest them!” as if he were a police officer calling for reinforcements. Thinking that police were on their way, the thugs fled. Sternbuch called a taxi and left the neighborhood.

Too bad the bystander didn't shoot the thugs. That would give the rest of their crew something to chew on.

"Others threw trash cans and dirty diapers"

And there you go...

"....dirty diapers...."

Hey, better dirty diapers than dirty (mixed) dancing, right?

Only in the case of mamzers are children guilty or guilty of parents' behavior.

These thugs actions indicate that they do not follow the Torah. Their behavior indicates their lineage comes from the erv rav.

will the son report and file charges against these thugs and be accused of being a mosur?

First of all, these pieces of porcine feces aren't in this for grave desecration. They are in this because Sternbach did not make a payoff to them. That being said, Israel's police force are a laughingstock. These pig-people aka Haredim know they can do their dirt with relative impunity because the police take a hands-off view of them. Therefore, as Sternbach is a charter member of this club along with the c-cksuckers who attacked him, he should protect himself with a weapon. Putting a bullet between the eyes of one of these pig-people will likely not be a crime according to the Israeli police. Therefore no harm, no foul. Sternbach will not be labelled a moser and the people of Israel may be free of this steaming pile of pig droppings for awhile.

Soon we will see self flagelation among the fanatics they will start beating themselfs to a bloody pulp.

Shmarya, are you losing it?

How did "he entered the yard of a Toldot Aharon Chassid" (from your own link) become: "as he tried unsuccessfully to enter the courtyard of a Toldot Aharon hasid?"

***********************

"At one point, he entered the yard of a Toldot Aharon Chassid who lives in the neighborhood. Before he entered, more fanatics threw his hat in the air, and trash cans and diapers began flying."

AK-
You are right. The Israel police tend to regard fighting between factors as domestic violence and rarely interfere.

Ed –

Again, your idiocy is showing.

He tried to enter the courtyard but was unable to do so. The armed man then shouted, scaring off the Asra Kadisha thugs. That's when Sternbuch was able to enter, and call a cab.

Now toddle off, little man.

Maybe we will be fortunate enough for the Haredim to just destroy each other.
