Shades of the 1920's: A Jewish man was hauled off to the Old City police station in the middle of prayer for sounding the shofar during Rosh HaShanah services at the area known as the Kotel HaKatan.

Totally ridiculous. You know how the police found out? An arab woman called them, saying it was distubing her children. Well, get out of our city arab woman, and it won't bother your children. Of course though, the arabs can "daven" (lehavdil elef alfei alafos) over loudspeakers in the wee hours of the morning, and nothing does anything to them. I got woken up from my Shabbos nap at our Old City Shabbaton in May by the arabs davening.

And also, why does the police have to beat everybody? What's with that? He was freakin' davening. Fine, they let him finish, but like, still, that wasn't their original plan.

And so it goes...
