Are the 'Progressive movement synagogue' the only targets?

Vandelism and voilence (against others that hold a different belief) in all shapes and forms should be denounced if a democratic and tolerant country is to grow in a healthy manner.

Most of Israel are decent and tolerant people, however I have to agree that the religious right wing are wielding more power as time goes on, which is giving them free reign to do as they please.
Some orthodox strand are also violently targeting messianic Jews (followers of Yeshua) also...
A teenager was sent a bomb in a Purim package, a community centre where they and local people (of different faiths) mainly played chess - was set on fire - with people in the building.
A European couple's (2 friends) house was bust open and the two girls were beaten up.

There are also incidents of baptisms (of adults) in a place of worship being descended upon by mobs of ultra orthodox where they start rioting, others that have slanderous posters put up in public squares (of a family that has messianic belief for 3 generations), mass public burnings of their holy book, and general intimidation of large numbers that can only be described as violent intimidating mobs.
Not to mention a government member for a number of years that was fired from his job on grounds of his belief.
What is just as worrying is that the police seem to tolerate it (them), therefore rendering a bias on security for all its citizens, and as long as they think they can get away with it the more dangerous they will become.
Below is only a snippet of what's going on, there are numerous more examples, some of the above incidents recorded in action.
