Haredim demonstrate against the richest Jew

Mark ZuckerbergSome 40,000 haredim demonstrated in New York in favor of regulating Internet access, and in particular against Facebook, which subverts traditional family values.

They are right, Facebook is subversive, but there has never been any way to stop progress, however detrimental it is to traditional moral values. Likewise, the insular Jewish communities of Eastern Europe opened up to the world about 150 years ago, and American haredim are no different. Outside Israel, there is no long-term way for Jews to escape assimilation.
