    'The standards must be transparent and in line with the Basic Laws' - The school has a written prospectus that outlines the requirements of religious observance for criteria of acceptance. 'The Ashkenazi ultra-Orthodox parents in Immanuel who are disturbed by what they consider religious laxity among Sephardi ultra-Orthodox parents' - By use of the word 'consider', you purport to be arbiter of the rules. How did you qualify for that? 'Sephardi ultra-Orthodox' they are not UA; that is what the argument is about. I accept that don't understand the differences, but who set you up to judge? 'The response was violent, with many hundreds of people demonstrating,' Violent'? Did you see pictures of violence? I saw just one: of a secular Sefardi attacking an Ashkenazi youth on the fringe of the demonstration. 'Hundreds of people?' In Bne Braq 150,000.In Jerusalem 200,000. Perhaps you should listen to the interviews Lalom has given. He clearly states that his agenda is to use the racism card to win the Orthodox/traditional argument.
