What will it take for Netanyahu to take a stand against such incitement?
Ultra-Orthodox newspaper portrays Reform Jews as donkeys
Yated Ne'eman is the newspaper of the Degel HaTorah party, which sits in PM Netanyahu's Coalition. They think of Reform Jews as donkeys, and of the Supreme Court as a dangerous political player, which equates "true" Judaism with donkeys posing as Jews.

What will it take for the Prime Minister to really stand up against such incitement and not merely settle for occasional empty pronouncements that neither he nor his coalition partners take seriously? When will he truly act on his commitment to make sure that "all Jews feel at home in Israel," just as he promised at the 2015 GA in Washington, DC?
Only full religious freedom and equality, including the official State recognition of the rights of non-Orthodox and secular Jews, and putting an end to the Chief Rabbinate's unholy monopoly, can change the ugly reality. This is Hiddush's goal - will you join us?
