TA mayor speaks against Haredi sector, arousing protests

Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai was slammed by Shas Party members for comments he made during a conference on the haredi education system.
Huldai called for civil disobedience by the secular population against what he regarded as an impossible situation where one sector is supporting another. The separate haredi sector “endangers Israel’s social and financial strength,” he added.
Shas members said the mayor’s comments were racist and inflammatory.
