HP Photo Bias: Ultra-Orthodox Protesters Smash Windows

The Huffington Post finally covered the news of an ultra-Orthodox protest which involved smashing bus windows in response to a female passenger refusing to sit in the back. What was the photo the Huffington Post chose to accompany this story of intolerance?

Why couldn't the Huffington Post do the same?
