News from 2006: Jewish woman reportedly beaten for not moving to back of bus in Israel
UPDATED: Mea culpa on my part. It turns out that this story is from 2006. That makes it no less disgusting, but it’s certainly not a burning issue. The date for the story was 15.12.06, but, in a hurry, I read that as December 6. Daniel Sieradski mentioned it today to make a point about Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar’s comment that haredi treat Jewish women “like queens and princesses.”
Read the rest here.
I’m sure some of my loyal readers will think I’m picking on Israel, having followed up the bad-brand post with this one. Far from it. This is all part of the healthy conversation and criticisms that should take place when people actually care about, and support, a country and its people.
Thanks to Daniel Sieradski for sharing the link.
