    JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli security guards at the Western Wall on Friday searched women worshippers arriving at the holiest place where Jews can pray for a seemingly inoffensive object — the Jewish prayer shawl, which under the Orthodox tradition can be worn only by men.

    Once the shawls were found, dozens of women had to deposit them before proceeding to pray in the section reserved for women. A few, who managed to sneak the shawls in under their coats and wrapped them around their shoulders, were promptly evicted or detained.

    I think it strange that Tinnie would even bring something like this up considering the fact that so many men in the Muslim world treat their women worse than their animals. Maybe Tinnie would like to send a Holiday Card to the young Afghani woman who is now in the U.S. getting treated for having her nose and ear cut off by her own husband. These incidents seem very commonplace in the Muslim world. By the way, Tinnie no doubt closes his eyes to all the Muslim women who are clamoring for equality, like those in Egypt.

    Too bad the Pro- Palestinian Hypocrite who still denies that Abbas wants a " Jew Free Palestinian State/ No Israeli " despite proof doesn't show the same " concern" lol about those women in Saudi Arabia, Afganistan, and other parts of the world. With each post they expose themselves more and more. :D :clap2:

    Forgot a few things; The Pro Palestinian Hypocrite is suddenly " concerned" about EQUALITY among women in the Jewish Community? He should be more concerned about " HONOR KILLINGS," or STONING TO DEATH. Just more of their lies, ignorance, Anti- Semitism and Racism :clap2:

    Muslim women have it alot worse. Besides, what does this have to do with the conflict? Like Tinnie always says--Irrelevent.

    its the best tinnie could do-----he found a little group of women who want to
    use prayer shawls in Israel For the record---the "wall" is treated for
    "legal purposes" like a synagogue-----and therefore ruled of conduct
    are by RELIGIOUS AUTHORITY Prayer shawls are part of ----"male" ritual..
    according to jewish religious practice ------what those ladies want with them is
    about as logical to me as public demonstrations that involved burning bras
    in the 60s
    A woman who tried to pray near the wall in a bikini would probably
    be stopped too.

    A woman who has an "AUDIENCE WITH THE POPE" who showed
    up in a Bikini-----might be stopped too

    getting back to gender equality-----a male who tried to pray at
    the Wall ----wearing a thong bathing suit would be stopped, too

    "Reform and Conservative streams, which are large in the U.S., have been at odds with Orthodox Israeli rabbis in Israel. Many members and supporters of Women of the Wall are American and are appalled at the authorities' reaction to their attempts to wear the shawls and pray at the Wall.

    "Laura Geller, a rabbi at Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills in Los Angeles, was one of the women forced to leave her prayer shawl behind on Friday.

    "'It's interesting that Israel is one of the few countries in the world where I can't be the Jew that I am,' she said, a blue and white skullcap placed atop her grey curls. 'The Wall needs to be big enough for us to find a way to share it.'"

    Apparently some Jews are more "chosen" than others.
    Hardly surprising considering the racist, misogynistic origins of Judaism.
