    I am sorry but this is simply misrepresntation. Firstly - "Rabbi" Yolkut was ordained by a conservative institution and hear clearly taikes the side of the non-orthodox in the debate or lets call it what it is - the strugle betweem orthodox nad non-orthodox judaism. To compare militant non-orhodox activists with gerim and describe them as "vulnerable" is either disingeneous or just shows how Yolkut's inability to see tjhis issue from teh orthodox perspective. For orthodox jews the behavior of Anat Hoffman is offensive and provocative. If any froup in the UK or US tried to trample like this on the sensitivites of others it would also not be acceptable. So I wonder - how much does Yolkut actually care about my sensitivities as shabbat & mizvot observing Jew or is it just the non-orthodox who deserve consideration?
