    Jerusalem is not cosmopolotan secular Tel Aviv it has a very large orthodox population and many of them feel more comfortable segregated. To somebody who is not orthodox it might seem like some of discrimination but its not. Having men only or women only cars hurts nobody at all its just a matter of sticking an extra car on the train the majority can travel in mixed compartments those who want to can travel in the single sex ones nice and simple. There are no comparisons with Iran or Saudi Arabia its just people who take religion seriously don't always do things the way seculars do and the people who take religion seriously should be admired not ridiculed and condemned. There are also plenty of secular women who will like the idea of these single sex compartments because very often women feel uncomfortable on mixed trains and these single sex cars are not limited to orthodox jews they are for anybody as long as they are of the right sex. These train is here to serve all the cities residents so the wishes of all its residents should be considered. Stop bashing the idea just because orthodox lifestyle is not the same as secular lifestyle what there people want is reasonable, it hurts nobody and just like every other passenger. I am sick of the haredi being condemned every time they want to do something different to seculars when there is good reason to criticize then do so but just because their way is not your way don't condemn them for it.
