Men to the left, women to the right. Meah Shearim (Photo: Haim Zach)
The last two years have also seen Meah Shearim's streets divided into men and women's galleries for the sake of chastity; but this year's festivities have been clouded by a demand made by the extreme groups within the neighborhood's community, such as the Sicarii, which demand women be kept out of the festival altogether.
Notice the link to the article "Saudi women must cover one eye." This "fatwa" which was completely ignored and not mentioned in any Arab, Muslim, or Middle Eastern media with the exception of Israel, is frankly, a fabrication. Placing the link next to this particular article is the Zionists transparent and unsuccessful effort draw the reader's attention away from Jewish "extremists" and place the focus on Islamic "extremists."
