UK official implies Jewish misogyny is fine as long as it is confined to Jews
It’s common knowledge that Islamists are misogynists – bigots who hate women, consider them inferior to men and advocate discrimination against them.
And there’s no shortage of media publicity of this aspect of Islamism, just one of a number of disgusting traits of the like of the Muslim Brotherhood and its demented offspring – al-Qaeda, Jabhat al-Nusra, Islamic State, Ansar al-Sharia, among others.
Much less publicity is given in the West to the Islamists’ brothers-in-primitiveness: Jewish fundamentalists. The Islamists have their Sharia – unmodified and disputed Islamic “law” dating back to over 1,400 years, and their Jewish brethren have their Halakha, which is at least 2,500 years old.
Residents of the London district of Hackney had a sneak encounter with Jewish fundamentalism this week when they woke up to find their streets littered with posters instructing women to walk on one side of the road so they do not lead men men astray.
“Women should please walk along this side of the road only,” read the notices posted in the Stamford Hill area of north London.
The posters had been put up by an orthodox Jewish group, according to Shomrim, a Jewish vigilante organisation operating in the British capital. A spokesman for the vigilantes told the Independent newspaper that the signs were put up in advance of a Torah procession in order to prevent men and women from coming into physical contact with each other.
Stamford Hill is home to over 20,000 Haredi Jews, the third largest group.
The posters were taken down after local residents complained.
A Hackney council spokesperson told the London Evening Standard: “As soon as the signs were brought to the council’s attention they were removed.”
Rosemary Sales, the elected local representative for Stamford Hill West, the area in which the offensive posters appeared, told the paper: ”It is of course quite unacceptable to try to restrict women’s movements in a public place and council officers removed these posters as soon as it was reported to them.”
However, instead of receiving the same harsh reactions that their Islamist brothers-in-primitiveness rightly get when they dish out their discriminatory poison, the Jewish misogynists were treated with kid gloves.
Superintendent Andy Walker, from Hackney police, told the London Evening Standard police officers had spoken to the parade organisers about “potential misinterpretation” of the signs.
He added: “They have agreed that next year they will only be written in Hebrew and will be removed more swiftly after the event.”
In other words, as long as the Jewish misogynists confine their hateful practice to Hebrew-reading Jewish women, and do so quickly before anyone has had time to ponder why this is happening on the streets of a British city, everything would be fine.
