So That’s why the Hasidim Joined the London Rioters

We didn’t understand why the hasidim joined the rioters in London. But now we may have an answer.

Failed Messiah reports,

Behadrei Haredim is reporting that a haredi yeshiva student was arrested for possession of property looted during the London riots.

It says the arrest sent shock waves through the haredi community in London, and people are getting rid of looted items as fast as they can.

Police say that more arrests are forthcoming.

What do you think?

    Nebech, the Yungerman needed to provide for his family and it is not cheap to be a Jew. When Moshiach comes everyone will be in yeshiva and will study Torah all day long and the goyim will be happy to provide for us, no looting nececcery.

    The first is meant to be humorous. The second, tragically, is not.

    Of course, generations of teaching them that taking from gentiles doesn’t qualify as “stealing” might have had something to do with it. (/sarcasm)
