Israel learns about segregation

Hirhurim discussing the issue of Jewish Woman being forced to go to the back of the bus

I feel like it’s America during segregation when I read that post.

How can anyone do that? Now I do understand that there is a nice portion of religious Jews out there who believe in doing such a segregation, but how can they go ahead and even delude themselves that it is empowering woman.

It is degrading to Klal Yisroel and to Woman when we are forcing them like what America did to the Blacks during and after the Reconstruction here. To not even condone such behavior should be in the eyes of every Jew a Chilul Hashem. The Rabbis of Israel should be rising up and condeming the people who force woman to be pushed aside, thrown into the back of the bus, to be made lower than a man.

Let’s not even start off with the bleach spraying that is now prevailant in Israel where people who are 100% tznius according to halacha are sprayed because they are wearing jeans.
