    Year ago the court ordered a section in Robinsons Arch be set aside for egalitarin services although there was no demand a proper section designed for services be built. What Sharansky really offered was sticking to the court ruling from years ago but instead make a proper area for prayer services like the plaza. WOW have lost this battle because just when they had got the court to allow them to hold their services at the main plaza they have been forced to back down and go to Robinsons Arch. What will probably happen os once the area is completed then they will start saying again we want the plaza. If they do back down and accept they lost at the Kotel they will find a new battle to fight because they are not the slightest bit interested in prayer, they are a feminist organisation and they believe orthodox Judaism is oppressive to women and so they want to break down all institutions of orthodoxy in Israel. Create a mini America in Israel where the majority of the Jewish population will be reform with orthodox a minority. That is their long term aim, started off at the motel but just watch this space they are going to find new battles to fight and its doubtful that they will be content with the egalitarian section when its finished because that means they lot the fight and the plaza is still orthodox.
