Is the Charedi world turning against the Edah Hacharedis?

This weeks Mishpacha newspaper (Hebrew) had a number of very strong opinion pieces against the Edah. Basically they said that they have become like the boy who cried wolf with so many protests and when a really important issue comes up the protest will have no meaning.

They also mentioned something that I posted a while back (Who is a real kannoi? ), that the kanaus of the Edah is not defined by Torah. They quoted a protester who said he was willing to die to prevent chillus shabbos. That is a very nice sentiment but is anti-Torah. The Torah says וחי בהם, a person needs to take care of themselves. Only the 3 cardinal sins are יהרוג ועל יעבור. In fact, here it is on an even lower level, it is not that someone is forcing him to be מחלל shabbos, but rather he is trying to prevent some stranger from being מחלל שבת. Therefore, there is absolutely no basis in halacha for a person to put himself in a life threatening position to prevent a stranger, or be מוחה for chillul shabbos.

Don't know about the hebrew edition, but the English Mishpachah is not charedi on a host of issues- so anything positive is proof that Charedim are seing the light and anything negative is proof that Charedim are bad...

We often forget that the Chareidi community is not as monolithic as it appears to outsiders. Many Chareidim are, in fact, not knuckle dragging parasites who think that throwing flaming garbage cans and calling police Nazis is limmud Torah. And those in that group are probably sick of walking past newspaper stands and seeing their degenerate cousins on the front page for all the wrong reasons.

Gosh the Ashkenazi Heredi world has moved to planet mars! May SHINUI come back BEzrat Hashem and put them back in place!

The Heredim have extorted too much money from the hard working class for too long.
