Toward the end of a particularly stormy meeting of the local planning and construction committee this past November at city council, the chairman, Deputy Mayor Meir Turgeman, didn’t disappoint the local press, which is always looking for juicy headlines.

“You are all trash, you will not hold us by our b-lls!” shouted Turgeman at Israel Kellerman, a member of the United Torah Judaism list at city council.
