Discrimination Jerusalem style

Someone sent us this link using some newfangled thing called 'Digg'. We thought we'd share it with you: 'Woman beaten on Jerusalem bus for refusing to move to rear seat'

Oh I get it (after following the links). Canadian Jews and American Jews aren't really Jewish. The real Jewish jews insist women sit on the BACK of the bus and keep their hair covered Muslim/Amish style. Otherwise, we get to smack the bitches up.

I cant believe they have segregated buses over there.
I thought Israel presents itself as a modern Western democracy.

The fact that its segregation is voluntary and adhered to and not mandated is worse.

Its not quaint. Its backward.

Sent this story off to LGF Watch, Malkin, Atlas, and LaShawn. So far, the last three chose this week to focus on Sandy Berger and Harry Potter..., do they even want to be taken seriously???

Orthodox Jews follow a stricture called "negiah", where one is not supposed to touch members of the opposite sex that aren't in the immediate family. I don't think that was respected too much, here.

I know of worse discrimination against women. But y'all don't care, bunch of misogynists, racists, xenophobes that you are. LOL !
