An Orthodox Jewish newspaper is now apologizing for digitally removing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from the picture which depicts American leaders who were watching on TV the SEAL operation to capture Osama bin Laden. The editor insist it was against Jewish theology to show pictures of women on ground it violated their modesty. Orthodox Jews believes “that women should be appreciated for who they are and what they do, not for what they look like, and the Jewish laws of modesty are an expression of respect for women.” As one raised as an Orthodox Jew this is exactly one of the reasons I left this group of bigots. If God is concerned about pictures, then why does God OK pictures of men? Shouldn’t we respect the modesty of men as well as of women?
If we want peace in the world, why not bring together Orthodox Jews and fundamentalist Muslims and let them create their own world of male chauvinism. They certainly will get together with one another!
