The BBC TV just reported it. The New York Times is reporting it, too.
I just don't get it. A few years ago during Disengagement, hareidim, ultra-Orthodox Jews, were shockingly silent when the Israeli government removed Jewish graves from Gush Katif. Israel got nothing but more attacks from the bad business unilateral decision to destroy Jewish communities and give our land to our Arab terrorist enemies.
So, what's being reported all over the world? Some, granted not all, hareidim are demonstrating against the removal of ancient graves from the site where a large, modern emergency ward is to be built in Ashkelon. Are there Jewish bodies buried in the site? Probably not. But for those who want to protest the government, it's a good enough excuse. Nu, if they wanted to protest, they should have done their protests to stop Disengagement to stop the desecration of Jewish graves.
And why is it so necessary to built a top world class emergency ward in Ashkelon? Because of Disengagement Ashkelon is on the front line of Arab terror.
