14. Indeed there have been, but the real violence has been on the hareidi buses
The hareidi are feeling more and more oppressed. Their political power is waning as are their state subsidies. Small outbursts are happening more and more often but not making the news, not unlike your friend. Not saying I agree with it, but I can see why their frustrations are building.

Israel was already quite secular and immigration is outstripping hareidi reproduction. The newer people and young sabras are unwilling to accommodate the hareidi nearly as much as their predecessors did.
