(Scroll down for video) Brooklyn, New York, residents are angry after signs popped up, asking them to dress modestly when walking through the Crown Heights neighborhood, which is populated by Lubavitch hasidim.

The signs have been popping up, asking people to "show some respect" and "dress modestly this is a Jewish community."

A rabbi told PIX11 News that he agrees with the signs. "A woman should cover up, she does not have to show what she has," he said.

However, a woman wearing a short skirt and sleeveless shirt said that the Hasidic community should show tolerance and accept others for who they are especially when it's hot outside.

Last week, Lubavitch began asking little girls to dress more modestly in order to safeguard Israeli soldiers fighting in Gaza. They promised the girls ice cream in exchange for wearing longer sleeves and longer skirts.

He also threw stones at the security gate of the center before launching another bomb at a police officers in front of the building.

That bomb ignited, but did not hurt the police officers. The man ran away from the scene, only to be captured shortly thereafter.

The attack took place an hour after 500 people rallied in solidarity of Gaza. It is unclear if the man had attended the protest.

(Scroll down for video) A group of anti-Israel Jews were seen protesting in Chicago, Illinois, and reciting the kaddish prayer for dead Gaza children, a video uploaded to the Internet showed.

Five protesters were arrested on Wednesday afternoon, inside the headquarters of Boeing, after a demonstration against the sale of military jets to Israel.

Protesters were inside the lobby at the headquarters of Boeing, wearing white shirts stained with red paint. “Boeing, Boeing, the blood is flowing,” the protesters shouted.

Those people who were outside, applauded when the demonstrators were arrested. Protesters targeted Boeing because the company makes aircraft that is sold to Israel.

Earlier, protesters read the names of those killed in the recent conflict.

“I'm hurting for the people of Gaza, because under no circumstances should they live in constant fear,” a protester said.

No one however, mentioned the fear of million of Israelis coming under constant rocket attacks by Hamas terrorists. At one point during the protest, the kaddish prayer was recited in memory of dead Gaza children.

The kaddish prayer is normally recited for one year after the death of a close family member such as a father or a mother.

(Scroll down for video) A group of Jewish pro-Palestinian protesters blocked the main access road to U.S. airplane giant Boeing.

The activists blocked the entrance to the offices of Boeing in Seattle, Washington, to protest what they call the company's support for Israel’s war machine.

A spokesperson for the Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) said that about 50 Jewish and Palestinians activists engaged in nonviolent protest.

A handful blocked the entrance to the offices at 9725 Middle Marginal Way S. Another 40 were conducting a "die-in" at a nearby intersection by laying in a crosswalk.

JVP accuses Boeing's defense arm of being a major arms supplier to the Israel Defense Forces. A Boeing spokesperson said it was working with the police in Tukwila to ensure that everyone was safe.

(Scroll down for video) A police officer was jailed after he was found guilty of sex crimes against a young girl.

The officer of Georgia, was fired from his job as a Catoosa County deputy. He was fired after working at the department for six years.

Stephen Crossen pleaded guilty to sodomy and sexual exploitation of children and was sentenced to a short two years in prison despite the 5 year mandatory sentence for such crimes.

According to the indictment, Crossen had oral sex with a 16-year-old girl and took photos of the sex acts.

Despite the mandatory sentence, Judge Ralph Van Pelt Jr., only sentenced the officer to two years in prison, saying that he was a first time offender and he did not use force with the victim.

District attorney Buzz Franklin filed an appeal, but lost and the court upheld his two year sentence rather than the state mandatory sentence.
