Jewish Orthodox Terrorists!

I'm having a hard time comprehending the latest acts of terrorism at the Ponevezh Yeshiva. JPost is reporting that 3 students were injured when a stun grenade was hurled at the Yeshiva Sunday evening. This comes just after a recent finding of 2 pipe bombs that were found outside the home of the Yeshiva's Dean, Rabbi Chaim Yosef Liebowitz. This story which was usually left for fights of Hassidic dynasties, has now found it's way into the Yeshiva (Litvish) world and it must come to an end. As the article explains the Yeshiva's reputation has been tarnished by this fighting and if you can comprehend this part:Some of the incidents include contracted beatings performed by professional goons, break-ins, confiscation of property and the use of firecrackers to disrupt Torah classes. What kind of world are we living in when people who claim to be learning Torah are using acts of terrorism?
