Haredim Out of Practice

Below is a story quoted verbatim from the Canadian Jewish News, March 22,2007. Any comment I could make would be superfluous. But I do draw your attention to the last sentence.

Anti-Zionist Beaten

WARSAW - An Austrian Jew who embraced Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was assaulted by a group of Israelis in Poland. Maariv reported that Mose Aryeh Freidman, a member of the fringe, anti-Zionist sect Neturei Karta who attended the recent Holocaust denial conference, host by Ahmadinejad in Teheran, was spotted this month while visiting the former Auschwitz and Bikenau camps. A group of Haredi Jews also visiting the sites set upon Freidman, who is originally from Monsey, N.Y. "We gave him a good beating, the kind we have not given in a long time," one of the Isrealis, Yehuda Meshi-Zahav, said.

While I mostly agree with your post, this article by Obadiah Shoher presents the haredim in somewhat different light http://samsonblinded.org/blog/not-true-rabbis.htm Shoher argues against haredim isolating themselves from other Jews instead of bringing the religion to masses.
