A 50-year-old man who hung an Israeli flag in Mea She'arim was attacked Wednesday by dozens of haredim. The incident occurred in the Jerusalem neighborhood's Shabbat Square. The man was rescued from the scene unharmed. Sections of the haredi community are vehemently anti-Zionist and they see Israel's Independence Day as void of religious meaning. Anti-Zionist haredim believe Jews have no right to self determination in Israel until the coming of the Messiah.
