Now, This Is The Right Way...

The Jerusalem Post reports that thousands of Chareidi kids protested and rallied in Jerusalem against the parking lot in Jerusalem that is open on Shabbos.

This protest, however, was peaceful. They marched, they rallied, they said tehillim and they blew the shofar. In short, they made their point without resorting to violence and making a chillul HaShem.

If I'm going to criticize when people make a Chillul HaShem, I have to also acknowledge when they try to correct the error and make (IMHO) a kiddush HaShem. Good job!

a kiddush hashem? a good job? a better job would have been not protesting at all. let them mind their own business.

The best thing would be to stand outside the parking lot on Shabbos and invite people there to come over for a hot Shabbos meal and some good zemiros.

Isn't a Shofar Muktzah?

I think that in general one should not instrumentalise children for political purposes. They are not there for this.
