“Police arrest two after residents chase officers, hurl rocks, and burn trashcans to protest the removal of a sign that calls for the separation of men and women on a main street.”
"Jerusalem: Jewish Ultra-Orthodox groups are creating a new Taliban in Jerusalem, who have issued a religious edict calling upon women to cover their bodies and hair in order to be cleared of their sins. Posters promoting the new dress code were spotted in the areas of Jerusalem pre-dominantly inhabited by the Haredim community, the Israeli daily Maariv reported.Women, the posters said, have to wear clothes that are neither tight nor transparent. The clothes have to be black in order to preserve women's modesty and allow them to be cleared of sins. The hair has to be covered as well. Violating those orders, the posters warned, is bound to have grave consequences since this means disobeying the teachings of the Torah."
ARABIAN VARIATION ON A HEBREW THEME
Here is an advertising poster with the face of a woman that has been defaced. The sign at the top right indicates 'No women' in Hebrew. One State in Malaysia has done the same thing. They don't allow women's faces on public advertisements. A similarity in fanaticism.
“Absolutely, I would not hesitate to spit on any woman who is not dressed in a modest way as the Torah commands, yes, even if she was a 7-year-old girl. After all, I’m a sane man”
“We are trying to determine what kind of society we are ~ is this a democracy where the majority decides, or is there a minority that pushes everyone in one direction?”
“whether you like it or not, all of Israel will be ultra-Orthodox. And nothing anyone can do about it.”
