The Ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israel are trying to bring about enforced segregation between the sexes, under their own strict laws.
Their wives and children have separate lives away from the rest of the Jewish community, and are rarely seen outside. The men do the shopping for the all the family needs.
The photo above shows the wives and children being ” taken ” under escort to the synagogue unable to mix with other people.
They want separate seating areas for woman on buses and else where, woman will not be allowed to sing in public and they must dress modestly.
Also, all photos of woman in shops, advertisements and in buildings open to the public must be taken down.
Some soldiers even refused to remain at a performance by female singers.
Young school girls have been shouted by the Ultra-Orthodox Jews for going to school, woman have been attacked and spat on for walking out side and being on a bus or other transport.
Does this remind you of another BARBARIC religion who dominate the woman, namely, Islam / Muslim / Sharia / religions.
The end of the school day at the Orot Girl’s Elementary ought to be an oasis of peace in the family day – a chance for mothers and daughters to chat over teachers and lessons and who-said-what-to-whom.
As the children and their mothers make their way home, intimidating pickets of ultra-orthodox Jewish men have been waiting for them a little way up the street – some, say the families, have thrown stones and tomatoes and faeces as they have tried to pass.
At the peak of the protests the scenes were shocking and intimidating, with a baying cacophony of shouted insults reaching a climax as the small family groups tried to find a way along the pavement.
But from the beginning of the current term a grim and disturbing drama has been played out instead in the busy street outside the school gates in the Israeli town of Beit Shemesh.
This sect is growing so fast that its said, in about 50 years they could be in power and then were would Israel be with the rest of the world.
