'Woman Encounters Fourth Century Timewarp On Israeli Bus'

Das ist wirklich unglaublich:

A woman who reported a vicious attack by an ad-hoc "modesty patrol" on a Jerusalem bus last month is now lining up support for her case and may be included in a petition to the High Court of Justice over the legality of sex-segregated buses.

Miriam Shear says she was traveling to pray at the Western Wall in Jerusalem's Old City early on November 24 when a group of ultra-Orthodox (Haredi) men attacked her for refusing to move to the back of the Egged No. 2 bus. She is now in touch with several legal advocacy and women's organizations, and at the same time, waiting for the police to apprehend her attackers.

In her first interview since the incident, Shear says that on the bus three weeks ago, she was slapped, kicked, punched and pushed by a group of men who demanded that she sit in the back of the bus with the other women. [...]

"Every two or three days, someone would tell me to sit in the back, sometimes politely and sometimes not," she recalled this week in a telephone interview. "I was always polite and said 'No. This is not a synagogue. I am not going to sit in the back.'"

But Shear, a 50-year-old religious woman, says that on the morning of the 24th, a man got onto the bus and demanded her seat - even though there were a number of other seats available in the front of the bus.

"I said, I'm not moving and he said, 'I'm not asking you, I'm telling you.' Then he spat in my face and at that point, I was in high adrenaline mode and called him a son-of-a-bitch, which I am not proud of. Then I spat back. At that point, he pushed me down and people on the bus were screaming that I was crazy. Four men surrounded me and slapped my face, punched me in the chest, pulled at my clothes, beat me, kicked me. My snood [hair covering] came off. I was fighting back and kicked one of the men in his privates. I will never forget the look on his face."
Aber leider nicht ungewöhnlich:
Wir wissen: Ein Mann ist der Frau körperlich überlegen. Weil Gott Sich nicht in Widersprüche verwickelt hat, sondern eine Ordnung geschaffen hat, also auch innerhalb einer Ordnung geschöpft hat, gilt selbstverständlich, daß der Mann einer Frau seelisch und geistig überlegen ist. Das macht den Mann oder die Frau nicht besser oder schlechter, sondern ist ein Ordnung, die Frieden gewährt. Deshalb soll sich die Frau dem Manne unterordnen, weil das Haupt des Mannes (und nicht der Frau) Jesus Christus ist und deshalb der Mann den Weg, Jesus Christus, kennt, plant und agiert in der Welt, draußen, und eine Frau innen (Heim, Kinder - schließlich ist sie auch die Gebärende, trägt Kinder IN sich, weshalb sie auch die Gabe hat, Männern ins Herz zu schauen, während Männer nur das Äußere sehen).
Irgendwie deprimierend.
