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 Shoher argues against haredim isolating themselves from other Jews instead of bringing the religion to masses.
