They are right. Only in נשר digging is allowed, but not in בית שמש.

Why don't these גולובנציץ developers understand that they have to pay dues to אתרא קדישא or they face bitter protests?

If they don't pay up millions of Shekels to שמידל they will not be able to build!

It's מס שמידל or Protesting, fair & square. Just as נשר developers cleverly paid.

Why were there no protests at Gur for the annual desecration of graves on Har Hamenuchos which resulted in the destruction of the kever of Rav Moshe Feinstein this year?

If it is as they say the construction was in danger of desecrating Jewish graves then Kol hakavod to the protesters but peacefully only.

Rav Dovid Shmidel of Asra Kadisha is great goan who is respected by all gedolim he really takes seriously the job that was put to him by the Brisker rav zt'l.

Whoever agrees with this piece of Gifilta Fish the famous MK ( to be mild) is out of their mind. How would YOU feel if and when someone dug up your grandparents grave? Chas Ve Sholom!!!

Reb Moshe Sternbuch Shlita who allowed this project, on certain conditions... is a minority against most Poskim in Israel.

Yochid VeRabim Halacha KeRabim.

please think before befriending this piece of Gifilta Fish, so to speak.

The protest is a Kiddush Hashem when it's done right. Lighting fires and hurting others is foolish and a Chillul Hashem. They cause ignorant people like some of those who posted above, to undermine the tremendous work their organization does for the protection of Kavod Hames.

Imagine had these 150 people joined the army, and got some training there, they would of needed several hundred security guards to maintain control.

I don't see that anyone is praying. They are standing around having a jolly good time having a bit of a chin wag.

I agree with # 2, how do 150 men get out of the Bais Medrash to "protest?" I know when I work I cannot just come and go as I please.

This Shmidel is no "goan" or talmid chacham. He has no respect among most frum rabbonim and askanim and many of his bunch of hooligans from Asra Kadisha should be in jail for their animal-like behavior against the security forces. He seems to mindlessly issue threats and protests against public and private projects in an attempt to extort financial settlements to get them to go away.

If they are not learning they should be drafted.

Besides it is only pagan bones. The Atara Kadisha are politically & financially motivated. There is no prohibition under Jewish law to remove Jewish graves in order to build important public instituitions like a hospital, road or much needed (Charadi) housing.

Where were the Atara Kadisha during the Aza disengagement? ...Sharon/Olmert paid the holy Atara Kadisha not to be there.
