At the organization's annual dinner, Rabbi Dovid Zwiebel, the executive VP of Agudath Israel of America, complains that media – and politicians – are biased against haredim. As proof, he cites an unsupported claim made by a right wing evangelical Christian legal organization.
Rabbi Zwiebel –
Do you think decades of child sexual abuse coverups and the current haredi attempt to protect their 'right' to suck the bleeding penises of newly circumcised babies (even though this ancient 'health' ritual has been been shown to transmit disease and maim – and even kill – babies) has anything to do with how your community is viewed?
What about the rampant thefts and frauds?
What about the worst violations of Humane Slaughter in recent US history committed by the Chabad hasidic owned-Agriprocessors?
You don't live in a vacuum, Rabbi Zwiebel, and as much as 2nd century CE medicine may make sense to you, it kills babies.
You think had a halakhic heter to rip the throats out of living cattle with meat hooks? Do the cattle care about your heter to torture them? Should we? Should US law? Of course not.
When are you going to be a man and stand up and tell haredim what deep down inside you know to be the truth?
Haredim are viewed as they are because of haredi misbehavior and crime, and until you stop whining and start ostracizing those haredi criminals and report them to police, and until Israeli haredim serve in the army and get off the public dole, nothing will ever change.
And many would argue that is just what the rabbis you represent really want.
