The Yellow stars that some young people wore at the demonstration last

Holocaust survivors - who were standing next to the yellow star
demonstrators but that fact was conveniently ignored by the
anti-religious press & media - & it was they who said that the
Israeli brutality against Chareidim reminds them of the Nazi years,

a holocaust survivor has a right to use or critcize the use of the
yellow star symbol!
