“WOMEN IN THE FEMINIST MOVEMENT ARE STUPID” ….. AND RABBIS ARE SMART?

The rabbinical ’sages’ of Israel have done it again….
A woman belongs in the kitchen, barefoot and pregnant! If she wraps herself in a prayer shawl and prays at the Western Wall she is STUPID! And these idiots had mothers? One really has to wonder about that…..
Last week Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, Israel’s chief Sephardi rabbi, said during his weekly sermon that the women in the feminist movement are “stupid” and act the way they do out of a selfish desire for equality, not “for heavens’ sake.”Rabbi Ovadia also said about the groups’ custom to pray at the Western Wall that “there are stupid women who come to the Western Wall, put on a tallit (prayer shawl), and pray,” and added that they should be condemned.


The above was taken from the following report….
Police arrest woman for wearing prayer shawl at Western Wall

Police on Wednesday arrested a woman who was praying at the Western Wall in Jerusalem, due to the fact that she was wrapped in a prayer shawl (tallit).The woman was visiting the site with the religious women’s group “Women of the Wall” to take part in the monthly Rosh Hodesh prayer.

Police were called to the area after the group asked to read a prayer aloud.

Police said they arrested the women in the wake of a High Court ruling, which states that the public visiting the Western Wall is obligated to dress in accordance with the sites’ dress code.Chairman of the women’s group, Anat Hoffman, responded by saying that this is the first time in the history of Israel that a woman has been arrested because she wrapped herself in a talit and read from the Torah.

Rabbi Gilad Kariv, associate director of Israel’s reform movement, said that all over the world women are entitled to wear the tallit, and only in the land of the Jews are they excluded from the social custom and even arrested for praying.

“Israeli police should be ashamed of themselves,” Kariv said.

Last week Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, Israel’s chief Sephardi rabbi, said during his weekly sermon that the women in the feminist movement are “stupid” and act the way they do out of a selfish desire for equality, not “for heavens’ sake.”

Rabbi Ovadia also said about the groups’ custom to pray at the Western Wall that “there are stupid women who come to the Western Wall, put on a tallit (prayer shawl), and pray,” and added that they should be condemned.

    “Did that mean old rabbi hurt your feelings?”

    Wow, violating a dress code! Talk about raging against the machine. These pioneering women stand as an example for the rest of us who wish only to march safely forward and proudly proclaim to the world “I am victim, pity me!” Now ladies if you want my attention you will have to do better than that. Not to belittle the suffering and sacrifice that you have shown facing off with the Western Wall Security Forces but it is kind of a yawner. Go to Somalia and stand between an angry mob throwing stones and a thirteen year old rape victim buried in the dirt up to her neck. You should be careful though, you may break a nail!
