    I was near Jaffa gate - you fave there a group of little ultra religious boys singing. God forbid! if it was a group of little girls. On Ben Yehuda, a group of national religious teenage boys singing their hearts out about the heartaches of love while a group of girls from the same section cheering to them. These girls don't seem to care that this simple right - sing out lout in public is not granted to them simply because they are females and in the twisted logic of their sector this is considered not modest! In both cases I didn't stay one second to enjoy the singing. As a woman there's not a chance that I'll listen to males singing if my gender doesn't have the right to do the same thing. It's disgusting how the Jerusalem municipality gives in every holiday to the religious sectors.
