Following the road accident Wednesday, criticism against the rallies within the haredi community has increased, especially since extremist elements in the Eda Haredit commit acts of vandalism and violence during them.
Businessmen within the community are also concerned by the lack of control over what goes on during the rallies. Among other things, efforts are being made to hold an emergency meeting between the businessmen and police representatives in order to discuss the situation.
Two people were seriously injured in a traffic accident when haredi rioters pushed a trash bin onto a Jerusalem highway, into which the motorcyclist and his passenger collided.
More than 200 haredim rioted in protest against the ongoing construction in Jaffa which they claim is desecrating graves on the site. During the demonstration, they clashed with police and threw stones at them.
