Knesset members express outrage regarding disgraceful handling of Nachlot abuse case

Knesset members from the Committee for the Rights of the Child expressed their outrage on Tuesday that a year-and- a-half after the largest pedophilia case in Jerusalem was uncovered, many of the suspects were still at large and coming into daily contact with their victims.

The committee held a special discussion about the pedophilia case that rocked a small, insular Jerusalem neighborhood this past year: More than a dozen perpetrators abused at least 100 children, starting as early as 2006.

Five men in their 40s and 50s were arrested in September, but police are still investigating additional claims of abuse.

“This scandal rocked our very foundations,” said MK Uri Maklev (United Torah Judaism), who initiated the discussion.

    It's only the tip of the iceberg. Lots of people are going to get outed, busted and jailed. Normative society has lost patience with this sort of nonsense.

    Children have rights. Women have rights. All people have human rights. Because all are created in the Tzelem Elokim. The world has evolved from the dark barbarism of the Middle Ages. There is no turning the clock back now.
