    The Supreme Court made a grievous error in sentencing the parents of haredi girls to jail because of their loathing of and discrimination against Sephardi Jews. After all these parents do not have minds of their own and do not make their own decisions. All they are doing is obeying orders from their rebbe. Hence it is the rebbe who should sit in jail not his brain-dead followers. It is inexcusable that parents with young children should be incarcerated simply because their capacity to think for themselves was cauterized virtually at birth - especially since the court knows exactly who is at the source of the problem. Apparently their rebbe is in pretty good fiscal shape too -- having been able to hand out bags filled with American cash to each of the coupled headed for prison. The parents of thegirls are as much victims as the Sephardi children whom they detest.
