    These excerpts show that Derfner has engaged in what can only be called group libel of Charedim. A column that ignores the factual context of the actions of the Charedi leadership in Ashdod as well as the suppression of a confession by an Israeli court can fairly well be accused of reeking with bias against Charedim. Many years ago, RYBS mentioned that the secular Israeli press reminded him of Der Steurmer. The years have passed, but the attitude of the Israeli secular press towards Charedim remains one of bigotry and ignorance. Can one imagine mainstream US papers writing in this manner against a minority?

    I must make a correction here. I sent my column to Larry Derfner in response to the publication of his article, and not prior to it. (My article was written first, but he would have had no way of knowing of its existence.)

    Also, I don’t think the Vallis family claims that no examination was done on the infant for eight hours. Only that the examination was inadequate and the infant kept under observation with no treatment for eight hours, at the end of which a second x-ray found the brain filled with blood.
