    cmon folx-this is Israel-without some respect for the holiness of the land, you might as well just turn it over to the arabs-what possible reason is there to live there, if you are going to treat it like the Brazilians treat Rio-if you think that anything should be shown, then why not just have her take the towel off?-why not just have pictures of nude women advertising products on billboards all over Israel-that would sure get tons of attention, and if you dont like it, dont look!-but, for some reason that is not the policy of any people in the world-so, obviously it is universal to have a line drawn in the sand-but, as long as your line is not crossed, then you have no problem with it, but God forbid the Chareidim say their line is crossed, and then all the anti frum attitude that you must strengthen to avoid the jewishness in your soul comes screaming out-so, as i say-what is your argument, if you do not beleive in standards, for not removing her towel entirely??????????
