We to trust a source called "Electronic Intifada"?

If no one is supposed to drive in those neighborhoods on Yom Kippur, why not block the streets, like for a parade?

"We to trust a source called "Electronic Intifada"?"

Ummm, what exactly is your problem with the name? I realize that for you "Intifada" doesn't have a positive connotation, but these folks are Palestinian and to them it does. If your people are rebelling against an occupier, why is the name "The Electronic Uprising" for a website so unserious? It's a VERY serious site, even if you disagree with what they say (and I do, on more than one occasion. They think we can go to a one state model tomorrow morning without epic bloodshed. I don't).

As for your question - in case emergency vehicles need to get from place to place, plus because it's not actual law. Just custom. In ultra-orthodox neighborhoods you have barricades at all the entrances to the neighborhood not just on Yom Kippur but on Sabbaths too, and if emergency vehicles need to go in they stop, get out, move the barricade and proceed (and sometimes get pelted by overzealous idiots despite being ambulances...).

Isn't stoning someone on the Sabbath considered "work"? Or do their fundo-rabbis have some excuse around that?

No rabies outright condone it, but it's excused as "youthful zeal".

Some ultra-orthodox rabbis recently condemned a dog to be stoned to death for being possessed by an evil spirit.

Thank you Lisa! Wow that is shoddy journalism. Misreport a court like that in the US, and there'd be hell to pay.

"[Ricky] what exactly is your problem with the name?"

Flaming lack of objectivity. Just as I would not trust an 18th century newspaper called "the patriot minuteman" for an entirely accurate report on supposed atrocities by British troops.

But miraculously enough (and unusually enough), the BBC actually apologized this time.

It doesn't pretend to objectivity. However, its reports are very well sourced, and in this case the guy (the actor in the video) admitted it was him.

When I reported on the dog story in my Hebrew blog I said I have the feeling it's a hoax of some sort. What probably happened is some kids stoned the dog, and someone made up the story around that. (and yes, I linked to the story in my English blog without that qualifier). However, it was initially reported by an ultra-orthodox site. Probably one with an axe to grind against the rabbi in question.
