The Modesty Guard

While Israelis and their Arab Muslim neighbors do not particularly like each other, it seems as if some ultra-Orthodox Jews have taken inspiration from the Sharia police in Muslim countries and have started their own "Modesty Guard" to harass Jewish women who are deemed not sufficiently modest. Read about it and watch the video here on Haaretz.

We really don't talk much in the blogophere about the religious "Jewish lunacy". There are the morality police and modesty guards everywhere based on some superstitious, paranoid ancient baloney. It's taking humans a very long time to progress.
