    I know everybody like to blame the hared for all of Israels problems but fact is in this case the trouble makers are the women. The Kotel as the holiest place where Jews can still go pray at is rightly run according to Halachic rules ( the rules orthodox Jews live by ) it's not run by the reform or the joke of a group the Mazorti which is even more reform than reform and these women are Mazorti. Fact is Halachic law says there are certain things men can do women cannot. Religion doesn't change it's rules because some members of secular society change their way of thinking. The so called women of the wall are a small trouble making organization and 99% of women and men who visit the Kotel have no problems the way things are run. As for the fact it's upsetting American Jews well it's non of their business because Jerusalem is not US property it belongs to Israel. Unless these US Jews are willing to let Israelis come to Washington and dictate how things should be run there then these people are more than welcome to come and visit and pray at the Kotel they just have to abide by existing rules and not carryout political stunts in an attempt to change the rules make things more secular.
