Livni slams haredi protesters for wearing yellow stars

Opposition leader Tzipi Livni on Saturday night criticized haredi (ultra-Orthodox) protesters in Jerusalem who wore yellow Stars of David on their jackets in the claim that the incitement and oppression against them was similar to that faced by Jews during the Holocaust.
"With all due respect to the right of groups in the haredi community to protest, and that is their elementary right, to put a yellow star on their children does serious injury to the memory of those killed in the Holocaust," Livni stated.
"I hope that the heads of the haredi public condemn these acts, because they hurt the common cause that all of us still share," she added.
