Sickening Satmar 'Simchas' Torah

Read Gothamist, NEW YORK POST , DAILY NEWS , Newsday, account of the disgusting, nonsensical, self-destructive, desecration of G-d's name, Yom Tov brawl.

L'Shaim Shmayim?

UPI :

A long-running feud between factions of the Satmar Hasidic Jewish sect erupted into a New York brawl involving up to 1,000 people, reports said.
Police closed streets for blocks around the Yetev Lev synagogue to break up the melee Tuesday that included punches, slaps, beard-pulling and at least one injury, The New York Post and Newsday reported.
The fracas broke out when people aligned with Aaron Teitelbaum, who leads the Kiras Joel congregation in Orange County, N.Y., reportedly forced their way into the New York temple headed by his brother, Zalman Teitelbaum....
While a New York judge last year refused to get involved in the dispute, an upstate judge's decision last week sparked Tuesday's confrontation, the reports said.
The ruling reportedly named an ally of the older brother as the corporate leader of the New York congregation.
Seven supporters of the older brother were cited for acting illegally as security guards.

A Plea: Can some smarter wiser heads gain control please, fast?

When UPI is covering it it goes from a local Chilul Hashem to a global one!
