On Wednesday, four female ‘rabbinical’ students from the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, including two Americans, were asked to ‘strip’ for security before being allowed to enter the Wailing Wall Plaza.
The four said they were questioned, pulled aside into a private room and asked to lift their shirts and skirts. The Wailing Wall security did not say what they were looking for, according to the Israel Religious Action Center of the Reform movement. Wailing Wall officials in the past have detained women and searched for Torah scrolls and other religious items they consider inappropriate for women to bring to the wall.
The women were among a group of 15 rabbinical, cantorial and Jewish education students from North America and Australia. They were part of Jewish feminist religious organization Women of the Wall (watch video below). In October 2012, one of group’s leaders Anat Hoffman was arrested by Israeli police for reciting prayers loudly while leading a group of 200 Jewish women at the Wailing Wall. She was stripped totally naked in the jail. She was dragged on floor and thrown in a cell with no bed, but had three other prisoners, including a prostitute and a car thief. The guard threw food through a little window in the door. She laid on the floor covered with her tallit (Jewish prayer shawl).
The Western anti-Muslim politicians, self-appointed Evangelical leaders, and Jewish-controlled media never stop blaming Islam being oppressive of women’s rights. In reality, Islam gives more rights to women than Judaism and Christianity combined. There is no First Sin (Gen 3:6-7; Rom 5:12; Cor 11:3; 1 Tim 2:14) in Holy Qur’an.
When it comes to discrimination against women, the Zionist entity can beat any Muslim-majority state.
In January, 2017, Israel’s high court ruled that women are not to be subjected to intense body searches when entering the Wailing Wall compound.
In 1948, the first prime minister of the Zionist entity said: “Any Jewish woman who does not bring into the world at least four healthy children is shirking her duty to the nation, like a soldier who evades military service.”
The US-Israel author Elana Maryles Sztokman, in her 2015 book, The War on Women in Israel, recounts the many ways in which Israeli Jewish women, particularly but not exclusively those who are religious, are ignored, sidelined, punished, blacklisted, and otherwise subjected to male domination – and the fighting responses of many Israeli Jewish feminists and their organizations, which strive to overcome the subjugation of women and to achieve gender equality in all aspects of Jewish and Israeli life.
In areas of Israel populated by religious majorities, Sztokman notes, every attempt is made to eliminate the sight, sound, and presence of women at conferences, conventions, on governing bodies, public stages, TV and radio, even in pictures and on posters. Professor Chani Ma’ayan, an expert on respiratory diseases who works at Hadassah Hospital on Mount Scopus in Jerusalem, and Naama Holtzer, a nurse, on being jointly awarded a prestigious prize by the Health Ministry, were forced to refrain from appearing onstage to accept the award in person, but instead had to send a man in their place. They were also asked to sit in the back of the hall, far from where the men in the audience would be able to see them. Separate lines and hours for men and women, along with other methods of gender segregation, are enforced for health clinics, hospitals, post offices, libraries, trains, cemeteries, and stores.
The so-called Million March in Paris in January 2015 to condemn terror attack at Charlie Hebdo office, a false flag operation was led by Francois Hollande, Benjamin Netanyahu, Angela Merkel, King of Jordan and many other world Jewish poodles. However, all Israeli Jewish religious media wiped off Angela Merkel from the photo.
