Worst Haredi Hasbara of the Day

"Aren't there enough arguments? Do you want everything to go up in flames? if not for us, the Haredi public, there wouldn't even be a Kotel. There were people who said that it is only stones"

MK Moshe Gafni (Yahdut Hatorah) during a Knessett Committee discussion on the Women of the Wall

One has to think fairly hard to explain how the Haredim have any credit for the Kotel. I suspect that the answer is a fairly general one where the Haredim insist that they are the true representatives of Judaism through the ages. If that is true, its even more offensive.
