Newsworthiness is in the eye of the beholder.

Therefore I can only tell you why I myself consider what I have posted here newsworthy, YMMV.

It is "news" to me because I find it remarkable, indeed, incredible that cultural mysogyny of the level described (women confined to the back of the bus, "mixed" prayer prohibited at the Western Wall, grown men "piously" spitting on little girls...) exists in a land that I do believe is considered, in general, to be a relatively "advanced" country.

I also find it a noteworthy point of concern that this faction of medievalists is a rapidly growing one.

    • So we are informed by DFM. Looks to me like the Muslims' cousins are practicing the same types of discriminations. One hears much Muslim basing but no basing of these crazy pigtailed ones.
