1. Enforcing minority sect rules on the public
Israeli grandma   (10.16.11)
The State of Israel has formally acknowledged that enforced segregation of the sexes is illegal. Repeated attempts by fanatical fringe Jewish minorities to force women to follow their self-made rules should be stopped by the Police, as part of their role to protect law and order in public places.
2. then dont go there
izzy d   (10.16.11)
3. Haredim are abusing Israeli democracy
Susya Bar Dror ,   IL   (10.16.11)
and undermining the social position of religious Jews.
4. Stop sex segregation everywhere.......
American Sabrah ,   Israel   (10.16.11)
Except for in synagogues and mikvahs.
5. This is something they do
Zvika   (10.16.11)
for a few evenings once a year for a few hours each night. The majority of the people passing through this area during those times are haredi. It's totally an internal haredi matter. Can't you find some real news to report?
6. Haredi women need to speak out.
Michael ,   California, USA   (10.17.11)
Are they not taught in school that segregation is illegal in Israel? Why are they docile, silent? There is only one explanation possible: Haredi women are oppressed to be silent. This should not be allowed to continue, no matter how minor the damage or how short-lasting it is.
7. to Zvika #5
Bluegrass Picker ,   Nashville   (10.17.11)
secretly putting ground pork into the ground-beef supply-chain of these Talabinnikkim is something I do, but it's only a a few hours each night, a few evenings once a year. I really appreciate your understanding that this isn't very newsworthy.
8. To #7: so glad you appreciate my understanding
Zvika ,   Jerusalem   (10.17.11)
especially since this is something really and truly relevant to you -- pickin' bluegrass in Tennessee!
