The draft exemption for ultra-Orthodox is no longer sustainable for Israel as the ultra-Orthodox community’s numbers explode.
Thousands of ultra-Orthodox Jews from a radical sect are again blocking roads in Jerusalem bringing traffic to a standstill and scuffling with police and passers-by.
Monday’s protest was the latest by the Peleg Yerushalmi group after some of its members were arrested when they did not go through procedures for draft exemptions granted to the ultra-Orthodox community.
Men in black hats and side locks mobbed intersections, preventing public buses and cars from moving.
