VIDEO & PHOTOS: About 4,000 Took Part in Anti-Intel Protest in Jerusalem


It appears the Eida Chareidis will declare the motzei 10 Teves Jerusalem protest against Intel a success since about 4,000 people were in attendance. Others expressed disappointment, expecting a larger turnout. The protest took place on Golda Meir Boulevard, near the Tamir Hotel, not far from the Har Chotzvim offices of Intel Jerusalem.

Among the Gedolei Yisrael Shlita in attendance were Gavaad Eida Chareidi Rabbi Yitzchak Tuvia Weiss Shlita, Admor of Toldos Aaron Shlita, Eida Av Beis Din Rabbi Moshe Sternbuch Shlita, Hagon Rav Michal YehudaLefkowitz Shlita, Rabbi Tzadka Shlita and Rabbi Schlesinger Shlita from Geneva.

Rav Weiss called on participants to remain respectful and peaceful and not to resort to violence.

One policeman was injured by a firecracker and a second by a stone hurled at him. There were reports of numerous limited clashes near the main protest group. At about 10:00pm, police called in reinforcements and declared the gathering was illegal, instructing the crowd to disperse. Seven arrests were made and police report a number of department vehicles were damaged.

After the event ended, hundreds of participants tried to close down the major boulevard but police moved in and prevented the success of the action.
