Yeah, I know I said I was on hiatus, but reading about this on the BBC web site a moment ago got my blood boiling.
Here we are in the 21st century and even in highly educated societies such as Israel, you still have male chauvinist bullies who are inspired by their religious orthodoxy to behave like a bunch of misogynists.
The articles quotes a woman named Naomi Regen, "They throw paint and bleach at women who aren't dressed modestly and if we don't draw a line in the sand here with this seat on a bus, then I don't know what this country and this religion is going to look like in 20 years."
In a post 9/11 world, we are used to criticizing misogyny in Muslim countries. But if such behavior cannot be curbed in a Western oriented society such as Israel, then what hope is there for women in Saudi Arabia or Pakistan? Contact the Israeli Embassy and tell them to abolish the "modesty" buses.
