More than 100,000 Haredi (ultra-orthodox) Jews took to the streets of Jerusalem Thursday (June 17) to protest an Israeli Supreme Court Decision that outlawed segregation at a religious girl's school in the West Bank town of Emanuel. The mostly male demonstrators, black-clad and bearded in the ultra-orthodox manner, crowded into the city squares, snarling traffic and waving signs with messages on them like, ""The Supreme Court is fascist," or "The prisoners of Emanuel are the messengers of the Jewish people."
So who is it these ultra-orthodox Jews wish their children to be segregated from? It's not Christian girls. It's not Muslim girls either. These Jews want their children to be kept separate from other Jews.
Ultra-orthodox protestor lies on the ground with a bloodied face after scuffling with the police.
