As I sit at my desk, a bug flutters by. It and its family share my home, adding little but some small annoyance. Each bug is about the size of the period at the end of this sentence.

The story is by now familiar enough to make grown men gag in disgust. In Israel, the haredi, the ultra-Orthodox (as opposed to the merely “Orthodox” who are called dati) have raised their voices and thrown their excrement.
