Slippery Slope

Notes From a Crumbling Democracy

Closed Society: 24 February, 2011

Pasquills (Wall posters written by ultra-orthodox Jews) spread across Safed in the past week are calling against the plan to build a Medical School in the town, defining it A Hollocaust of Assimilation. The pasquills’ natures reveal this is not only a battle against future Arab students but also for the city’s future ambiance. According to residents, the identity of the people who spread the pasquills is unknown. “It is obvious that only a few are involved”, said a resident related to the ultra-orthodox community, “but the ultra-orthodox society is aligning with the extremists, and the moderates are silent”.
