Ron Huldai's outrageous response to the prayer disruption in Tel Aviv

The disruption of Yom Kippur prayer in Tel Aviv. Ronen Huldai argues that he does not condemn the violence against the worshipers because there was none: "We cannot change the nature of the city."

Ronen Huldai, the mayor of Tel Aviv, addressed in an interview with Channel 2 the disruption at the Yom Kippur prayer in Dizengoff Square, allegedly caused by left-wing protesters. He explained why he does not condemn the violence against the worshipers, saying, "I do not condemn the violence because there was none." He added, "The public in the State of Israel has awakened, and we cannot change the nature of the city."

Regarding Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir's intention to hold segregated prayer in Tel Aviv this week, Huldai said, "If partitions are set up in the prayer that Ben-Gvir intends to hold, I will order their removal."

It seems that the Yom Kippur prayer in Dizengoff is not the last target of the left-wing protesters. Ami Dror, one of the protest leaders, has already pointed out the next targets of the protest after the disruption at the Yom Kippur prayer in Dizengoff Square.

In a Twitter post, Dror expressed his hatred towards the religious and right-wing public: "After you went to war against the army, the Shin Bet, and the IDF, you chose to start a religious war on Yom Kippur. You, who glorify murderers like Amir Ben-Uliel and Yigal Amir, are doing everything to make the Jewish religion hated among the Jewish people, but apparently you did not understand that true Judaism belongs to us."

He later asked why the ultra-Orthodox are not distancing themselves from the radical public: "What will you say when we start holding 'open reform prayers' in Bnei Brak and Jerusalem squares? What will you say when we set up secularization booths in Modi'in Elite?" Dror asked, seemingly forgetting the protest marches in Bnei Brak.

In the end, he set the next targets of the protest: "Friends and comrades, we will cleanse this 'messianic Judaism' from us. We will not allow the messianics to destroy the Third Temple. We will not let them steal Judaism. We will start with Chabad booths, continue with the 'Garin Torani' and dry up the hate machine. We've only just begun."
