Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The Guardian today has an article on the Ultra-Orthodox in Jerusalem:

Jewish 'ultras' defend morals with menace; The Haredi sect has launched an aggressive campaign against the secular lifestyles of women in Jerusalem.

Nothing new that hasn't appeared in the Israeli and Jewish press over the last few years, but I think that this is the first time I've seen an article like this in the general press. The Guardian even mentions the "Frumka", the Jewish version of the burka, though without using this tongue-in-cheek name.
