Israel is a nation in which Jews of all movements and approaches to interpreting Torah should be free to express themselves. This way of following mitzvot relating to niddah and bus seats may work for the community of the person who posted this message, but his group does not have a monopoly on interpreting Torah. Liberal expressions of Judaism would evaluate these issues of purity, public policy, and pluralism very differently. I realize that to this person, my approach to Judaism is not valid, but that is truly just one group's opinion, and I do not agree that it is Hashem's will. May Israel remain a pluralistic democracy.
