    ...and it has nothing to do with religion. You are looking for the rocks and curses that give you the attention and victimhood status you seek. The myth that WoW seeks to promote is the lie that freedom of expression includes the right to disturb the peace. Try waving a pro-Bibi banner in a spot where pro-Meretz demonstrators "just so happen" to be legally demonstrating. You, the banner-waver, and not the people whom you incite will be arrested. The reason is simple: you are outnumbered, and it is easier to restore peace by removing the instigator even if we all agree that the spitters and rock throwers are more repulsive. By refusing to accept the Robinson's Arch solution, WoW has demonstrated that they are not interested in praying near the wall but near to people who "just so happen" to be the most opposed to what they are doing. I need no soul-scan to ascertain that WoW is as motivated by feminism as I am to ascertain what politics motivate people who want to pray on the Temple Mount. Why should Israeli policemen and policewomen be dragged into a conflagration deliberately set to draw attention to bogus claims of victimhood? Can feminists really not think of issues that women face that might be more pressing?
