Typical distortion to demonize Hareidim. How can this be called a battle over segregation when %27 of the student body of the hareidi track is Sephardic? The Slonim leaders have repeatedly stated that any, any, student wiould be welcome, no matter what origin, as long as they agree to comply with the charachter of the school. Those who have been denied admission have no ethnic complaint or greivance; they were turned down only for attempting to redefine the nature of the school. Further, the concept that parents can be jailed for sending their children voluntarily to a different school, in Bnei Beraq, [as opposed to forcing a further ight in Emmanuel for control], defies all logic. If this, sending ones child o a school of your own choice can be classified as contempt, certainly we can easily find grounds to arrest every other citizen.
