I’m a little surprised nobody has brought this up since, unlike Conservative and Reform rabbis, this is a positive development for the Jewish people.
More and more women in Jerusalem’s Geula neighborhood have been complaining of being sprayed with a bleach mix.
The attacks mark an escalation of the religious fanatics’ battle against what they refer to as the â€˜promiscuity’ on the haredi streets and the infiltration of â€˜fashion’ that often times does not correspond with the strict dress codes in the community.
For instance, clothes that may seem modest to most people are considered by religious extremists to be ostentatious if they have shiny or colorful elements to them. Similar claims are made against women who wear overly-tight outfits.
A vendor at one of the local clothing stores said she felt something wet dripping on her shirt as she was walking down the street. At first she thought someone poured water over her, but later realized that she had been sprayed with bleach.
Needless to say, I’m embarrassed for Ynet and its reporter Neta Sela for using language like “religious fanatics” and “religious zealots” when they refer to good ol’ ultra Orthodox yeshiva men.
