Yeah that’s right, you won’t hear her kvetching about females being victimized by sharia around the world, just Jews in the M.E.’s only liberal democracy gets her attention.
Actually it’s a totally legitimate criticism, but what gets me is her exclusiveness outrage, when has she ever mentioned sharia law, the victimization of hundreds of millions of women, who undergo on a daily basis FGM, beatings, discrimination in sharia courts, forced to wear suffocating bag-wear, and head scarves, against their wishes, as well as being raped then suffering prison sentences for sexual relations outside of marriage, or worse, stoning to death?
NOTE: Big Libs are a dime a dozen, so too are their opinions. Oh, and btw, what’s with the handing out of phony doctorates to public blowhards anyway?
Barbra Streisand waded into one of Israel’s touchiest issues during the first major stop on her tour of the country — Jewish religious practices that separate men and women.
Speaking at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem on Monday, she took aim at cases of ultra-Orthodox Jews targeting women.
“It’s distressing to read about women in Israel being forced to sit in the back of the bus,” she said, “or when we hear about `Women of the Wall’ having metal chairs thrown at them when they attempt to peacefully and legally pray.”
She was referring to isolated incidents in which ultra-Orthodox men tried to force women to sit separately at the rear of buses that go through their neighborhoods, as well as more serious clashes in which ultra-Orthodox Jews tried to prevent women donning prayer shawls and carrying Torah scrolls from praying at the Western Wall in Jerusalem, the holiest site where Jews can worship.
