Fights erupt at Jerusalem's Western Wall after ultra-Orthodox Jewish men try to block women's group

Brawls broke out on Friday between thousands of young ultra-Orthodox Jews and a group of progressive Jewish women at the Western Wall in Jerusalem over their right to pray at one of Judaism’s holiest sites.

The ultra-Orthodox Jews tried to prevent the women from praying at the site on Friday to mark the 30th anniversary of Women of the Wall, a women’s prayer group that advocates for equality of worship at the Western Wall, where men and women currently have different sections and cannot pray together.

Women, who prayed while wearing religious clothing that ultra-Orthodox Jews believe is reserved only for men, were insulted, shouted and even spat on.

Police restrained the protesters who charged at the women and had to later escort the women to another area where non-traditional prayers take place in a bid to avoid further clashes.

1. I am still waiting for the the Women of the Wall to open up a can of whoop ass on the Haredi men

There have been cases where the Haredi men have harassed women in the street over their attire etc and have gotten their ass kicked for it. Thinking a larger version is called for.

4. Lol. Religion brings out the best in people.

Don't want to make sky-daddy angry by letting women pray to him where men do.
Can't have that.
