Ultra-Orthodox group threatens anti-draft protest at airport

An ultra-Orthodox group behind a series of recent protests against the arrest of draft dodgers from the community is threatening to block traffic to and from Ben Gurion International Airport in an upcoming protest.

A statement from the Committee to Save the World of Torah, says it will hold a protest at the airport in order to bring the issue to the attention of “the whole world.”

“Due to the government’s escalation of the harassment of prisoners from the Torah world, it has been decided to expand the protest at this time in order that it will reach the ears of the entire world,” the announcement says.
