stude ham   (01.25.11)
these haredi are vying for the dumber than dumbest award.
2. Only two years for assault and battery?
Raymond in DC ,   Washington, USA   (01.25.11)
The disruption of his business alone should have merited more than two years punishment. But the assault and beating of the store owner merited many times the assigned punishment. Yet the judge foolishly offered his own "compassion to the cruel". What makes it worse is that Weisfish won't likely serve even the two years.
3. You can study Torah and not understand it.

4. Unfortunately secular society has not..
ORA ,   Jerusalem   (01.25.11)
monopoly of criminal acts.
5. And about time to
avi ,   israel   (01.25.11)
the fanatical harideem have been getting away with it to long, its about time longer jail sentences were handed out to these thugs. Not to worry im sure they will be served 3 kosher meals a day for the next 2years, may every hour feel like a day.
6. Only two years ?
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (01.25.11)
He had at least have to receive TWICE this punisment . He broke civil laws , and maybe even his "religious" laws . Nice those "representatives" of a religion who want to impose their lifestyle on sane Israelis . The only thing those bipedes can obtain is that SANE Israelis will distance themselve more and more from this "religion"
7. 2 years?
A Jerusalemite ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (01.25.11)
2 Years is not sufficient punishment for a severe beating, causing fear and loss of business. Nor is it sufficient to dissuade such a person that his behaviour is unacceptable. He will after all, as Haridi, be receiving special treatment in prison and not as the criminal that he is.
Michael ,   California, USA   (01.25.11)
They may think they are a religion, but what they really are is a mafia. They are a society that lives outside the law of the State and claims they have their own laws and leaders, the same as any mafia in the world. It is high time they are given penalties on a par with criminal mafias. This penalty of two years is way, way too lenient penalties.
9. Chastity squad
J.K. ,   Brooklyn USA   (01.26.11)
Haredi Hamas ,did the criminal scream: Allahuachbar after hearing the sentence.
10. Finally, but still not enough
JDE ,   Boston, USA   (01.26.11)
Cue the Haredim crying, "Discrimination! Racism!" in 3,2,1... "She also attacked the haredi leadership for doing nothing in order to prevent the violence" Bingo. Meanwhile, it took two years (at least ) from beating to sentence, and, as others have mentioned, it was a lenient one at that - and they only prosecuted one of the perpetrators, and it doesn't address other, similar incidents that take place on a daily basis. Haredim threaten and throw chairs at women at the wall, but Anat Hoffman is the one they arrest. The Israeli government is still terrified of these dysfunctional adult children - and I, as an American, can't begin to understand the reason.
