Two Views On Haredi-Secular Relations

These videos are all from Channel 10, which seems to have a much more interesting relationship with the Israeli Haredi Community than Channel 2.
The first video is an Israeli version of "black like me" where the journalists dress up as Haredim and travel around Israel to feel and check whether Haredim are discriminated against. This is well worth watching, with the general conclusion showing that there was an anti-Haredi discrimination. It is also interesting since the reporters did not edit out their own comments on what would make "good" television.

The second video is an interview with a leader of the Haredi unrest in Beit Shemesh, which gives some insight into the extremist mentality.
