Top rabbi: Gender segregated buses go against Jewish Law

A leading Israeli rabbi condemned Ultra-Orthodox gender segregation on public buses Tuesday, saying that such policies “destroy the foundations of the Torah.”


An indictment was filed Thursday against Jerusalem resident, an ultra-Orthodox man who spit,hurled sexist slurs at a female soldier on a public bus in the capital, after she refused his demand to move to the back of the bus. The Orthodox called her a 'Shiksa' (slut/prostitute in Yiddish) and was arrested by the police for doing so.
The indictment follows a warning issued by Israeli authorities saying they would not tolerate the exclusion of women from the public sphere or any acts of violence towards women. State Prosecutor Moshe Lador stressed that "the prosecution will work with the police to bring this radical phenomenon of haredi extremism to an end."

  • As those who follow here my items regarding this can see- this has became now a full scale confrontation between the public of Israel and these lunatic radicals among the Ultra-Orthodox.

    • @aydeo your country is going slowly and nicely from secular to religious.. 50 years later, it wouldn't surprise me the culture will be like 5000 years ago. after all, when USA sorted out the arabs, you will be next to be poisoned by the older social culture and religious nut cases to dominate your daily lifes. after all, after arabs sorted and colonised, who needs allies?

    • @IHATEZIONS You clearly don't speak english. But every religion has its fringe elements. There are even militant atheists. Whichever belief you subscribe too, there are those who take it to an extreme and will kill over it.

    • @SunniLebanese 'There are even militant atheists', possibly only in Lebanon.

      Unfortunately your lunatic government depends on these Ultra-Orthadox halfwits for much needed support. So don't expect this nonsense to end any time soon.
      I posted about these nutjobs back in October, and nobody noticed.

  • Good for her. Women can serve in their forces to protect the likes of him, but then they can't sit anywhere on a bus. How fucked up is that.

      Many Ultra-Orthodox in Israel are going to night clubs or prostitutes.

      It is a well known fact. they understand it is not really possible to completely cut yourself from the world which is beyond their inner world of restrictions.

      In matter of fact i have allot of respect to those of them who have the courage to cross the lines into the "other" world.
