Of course any reasonable person should feel ashamed that something like that can happen anywhere in the world, but in particular in Israel, and most particular at the holiest site of them all. It has nothing to do with Judaism, old-fashioned misogyny combined with a psychotic lust for power, nothing more. Obviously some have not learned to love-in-vein and are still consumed by their need to hate-in-vein. But even in this troubling story I believe we can find hope. It takes such cases of injustice to highlight the discrepancy between supposed freedoms and rights, afforded to all Israelis regardless of race, creed or gender in our code of laws, and the blatant disregard to such rights by no other then those charged with protecting them -- the police. One can hope that seeing injustice will cause many to try and address it. Three cheers to the Talit-Woman (a new superhero ^_^), it takes courage to do what you did, hopefully we will all be for the better because of it. Good day.
