Ultra-Orthodox Jews in Jerusalem Turn on Reporter

An ABC reporter was covering a violent protest (against a new car park) by Ultra-Orthodox Jews when she was attacked by these Jews, apparently for turning on her tape recorder. She didn’t realize this at the time, but using a tape recorder on the Jewish sabbath is an act forbidden by the Ultra-Orthdox, even for non-Jews . These men screamed and spit at her, with at least one hitting her. She eventually made her way to the riot police, who let her through to safety. There were some Orthodox Jews even behind the police lines and she had to make it through a few more screaming men to reach complete safety. By that time she was covered with spit and badly shaken.  Read her account of the attack.
