Haredi interviewees say cops carried out ‘pogrom,’ ‘Kristallnacht’ in Bnei Brak

Faced with accusations of rampant violence against police officers doing their job trying to enforce the coronavirus lockdown, ultra-Orthodox TV interviewees use Holocaust imagery to describe alleged excessive force used by cops.

Nathan Rosenblatt, a resident of Modiin Illit, talks to Channel 12 about “the Kristallnacht that the police carried out in Bnei Brak last week,” referring to the “night of broken glass” in 1938 when Nazi forces destroyed Jewish property in Germany, including hundreds of synagogues and thousands of businesses, and arrested more than 30,000 Jewish men.

Earlier, a representative of the extremist Jerusalem Faction accused cops of carrying out “pogroms,” in an interview with Channel 12.
