Anti - haredi provocation in Kiryat Yovel and Kiryat Menachem


Honestly, I am always upset when haredi news sites leave out information. The Hebrew site "Kikar Shabbat" is reporting about another provocation against the haredi public of Jerusalem’s neighbourhoods Kiryat Yovel and Kiryat Menachem but leaves out the main information: A photo showing what is the new argument about. 

One can argue that the photo is not modest at all and that such picture material shouldn’t be spread in public. However, many readers (including myself) would have liked to see what is going on. If you don’t find anything on haredi sites, go to Israel’s secular news sites and on YNET you find everything. 

Last Shabbat, the religious population of Kiryat Yovel and the nearby neighbourhood Kiryat Menachem was shocked seeing that obviously secular Jews hung up immodest posters showing half naked women. For the past years, more and more Haredim have been moving into the Kiryat Yovel due to the formerly affordable rent. The same happening in the nearby neighbourhood Kiryat Menachem. The result is that the secular population feels threatened. A similar development we see in Jerusalem’s neighbourhood of Givat Mordechai. No one knows who hung up those posters last Erev Shabbat but even a high percentage of secular locals is speaking up against such pictures and actions.

I don't really understand the logic of the people hanging up the posters. Is it just to provoke the frum population ? And if so, the picture won't help anything.
