Today, the Israeli daily Ha’aretz reported that four women were arrested yesterday for praying in the women’s section of the Wailing Wall. After keeping them under lock for half-a-day, the Jewish security police released them on the condition that they would not enter the area for praying for the next 50 days. If any of those women decided to go back on their promise, she could face upto 18 months in jail under Israeli law for “being danger to public peace”.
Merav Michaeli’s comment on the news: “Understanding matters of security and life and death are also an asset and symbol of masculinity; and secular men, like religious men, do not allow women to step into their holy of holies“.
I agree with the first part of Merav Michaeli’s comment. To western racists and ignorants, both seculars and religious – only Islam discriminates against women. In fact, in the West and most Muslim countries, women participate in prayers along with men in women section of mosques. World’s oldest university, Al-Azhar (Egypt), always have ‘co-education’.
As far the Wailing Wall being Jewish sacred place is concerned – it’s one of numerous Zionists’ myths created to fool its fanatic anti-Muslim western Zionist Christian backers. American archaeologist and author, Professor Dr. Ernest L. Martin (died 2002) in his 1999 book ‘‘The Temples that Jerusalem Forgot’ has claimed that Muslims’ two sacred structures, Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of Rock are not built on top of the Temple Mount ruins. The so-called ‘Wailing Wall’ is in fact, a portion of an old Roman fortress.
The Judeo-Christian Bible shows no respect toward women. Rev. Roland de Vaux in book ‘Ancient Israel: Its life and Instructions’ claims that in social and legal matters, an Israelite woman is the most oppressed women in the world.
This is not the first event of women-bashing in Israel. In certain areas of Jerusalem city, Jewish women are forced to ride in the back of buses and trains. In Israel, Jewish women are not allowed to carry Jewish Holly book Torah, or board Israel’s national airline El Al carrying Rabbis. These flights between Tel Aviv to New York are ‘women-free and movie-free’. No air stewardesses are allowed.
Even in Hillary Clinton’s so-called “country with the best women rights and religious freedom”, the United States – Jewish women are neither allowed to drive or walk on the same side of the street as men – right in New Square, an Orthodox Jewish enclave north of Time Square.
A group of Judeo-Christian, Muslim and Hindu women, the Women Against Islamophobia and Racism have been involved in spreading the truth about women’s place in Islam – in order to challenge some of the Zionists’ Islam-bashing propaganda lies to promote Israeli interests.
