Leftards do support "modesty" when Islamists demand it

And here's a report on how, in a followup to this earlier item:
While the Israeli left has been extremely critical of hareidi Jews who pressure others to dress modestly, it turns out that sometimes the left supports modest dress. The extreme-left Magazine Hakibush (Occupation Magazine) recently called on its readers to dress modestly and respect community norms – when visiting Palestinian Authority Arab areas.

The magazine called on readers to join Arabs in the Hevron hills, and added, “Remember to bring your ID card, water, a hat, and modest clothing that respects the sensitivities of the Palestinians.”

The appeal mentioned shorts and sleeveless shirts as two things that should not be worn.
I wouldn't be surprised if homosexuality is another something they don't want to offend the Muslims with. Does that rag also tell gays and lesbians to stay at home or just keep their mindsets in check?

And despite alleged claims they detest Haredi beliefs in modest dress, the left is willing to make deals in coalition partnerships in the Knesset and provide them with welfare benefits if that's what it takes to ascend to government, and if they do have a problem with them, it's only because not even Satmar could be thought leftist enough for their tastes, or because Judaism isn't the religion they see as worthy of upholding modesty issues for.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
