The war against Modern & Zionist Orthodoxy

I'm linking to a definition of aguna because my readers won't be able to understand this post without understanding the problem that it describes.

If there's one thing I've learned from blogging, it's not to tar any entire group. I'm operating on the assumption that not even all the chareidim (fervently Orthodox Jews, both chassidic and non-chassidic) agree with the recent ruling by chareidi rabbis invalidating thousands of conversions performed by an Israeli Orthodox rabbi of the Dati LeUmi (Religious Zionist) camp. I don't see much choice, however, but to agree that those who promulgated this ruling and those who agree with it are engaged in an active attempt to discredit all Dati LeUmi rabbis (and, by extensive, all non-chareidi rabbis worldwide), regardless of how much suffering they cause to those affected by their ruling(s).
