A Comment on "Terror In Beit Shemesh: Wheelchair Bound Orthodox Kids Harassed By Haredim"
This isn't "only" about gender-harassment. It is about a fundamentalism that has pervaded the mindset of a sub-community within Israel that has yet to be truly attended to by the government. The national response cannot be short-lived, because this world-view is deeply rooted and will not be answered within one media-cycle.
