The Israeli Rosa Parks

Israeli woman refuses ultra-Orthodox dictate to move to back of bus - The Israeli public is furious again over the ultra-Orthodox : A woman passenger on a public bus from Ashdod to Jerusalem Friday was told by an ultra-Orthodox male passenger to move to the back of the bus. The man held the door of the bus open and would not allow it to move for approximately 30 minutes.When other passengers began to complain about the delay, the driver called the police. The policeman who arrived on the scene spoke with the man and then also asked the woman, Tanya Rosenblit, to move to the back of the bus. When she refused, the man who had been holding the door alighted and the bus continued on its way.

  • Fundamentalists, be they Jewish, Muslim or Christian are the problem. Pity we cannot ship them all off to the South pole and let them sort themselves out there.

  • Right now there is allot of public outrage over this certain ultra-Orthodox public which is trying to impose segregation between males and females in public buses. it is mainly in buses which goes through Orthodox areas in Jerusalem.

    It is a radicalism which most of the religious public, including rabbis are strongly against.

    It seems that sooner or later Israel will declare some sort of war on it's radical fractions (radical settlers,radical Orthodox) in order to shut them up. Just like in J More..

  • All religion aside. Only in the middle east does this happen.
