    The haredi are persecuted in Israel today just same as Jews were persecuted in Europe and its not just since a handful of radicals came onto the scene. For decades now haredi have been persecuted by seculars condemning them for everything from the fact they have not embraced technology to the way they dress. Israel is the capital of haredi persecution and has been for a very long time. If the seculars want to end the radicals who are making trouble right now then they are going to have to embrace the wider haredi community. The secular have no more right to force their culture onto haredi anymore than haredi have a right to force their culture onto seculars ( the country belongs to both equally ). Time for political gestures to be made for haredi such as a handful of segregated busses on certain routes that travel through large haredi population centers, both haredi men and women like segregation because they share the same culture which is not secular culture and if there are mixed busses also on the same route where is the justifiable objection? The secular ideological movements need to sit down, shut up and let the haredi communities, municipalities and politicians do deals and then the secular community must be tolerant of the haredi and in exchange the haredi will help crack down on the radicals because it can't be stopped without help from the wider haredi community and if haredi persecution continues nobody will lift a finger to stop the radicals. Do we want this to be a country where Jew persecutes Jew over Judaism?
