Egged finally starts posting ads with women again

The bus company's finally getting that succumbing to Haredi extremists doesn't help:
After a four-year-long legal battle, Egged buses in Jerusalem began displaying advertisements that feature women's faces on Sunday.

The advertisements feature a mix of women from Jerusalem – secular, religious, hareidi and Arab – despite concern over backlash by extremist hareidi elements.

Some fringe elements within the hareidi community view the portrayal of women's faces as immoral, and occasionally tear down posters or other publications which feature such pictures

The campaign was mounted by the Yerushalmim movement, at the initiative of Deputy Mayor Rachel Azaria, who heads the Yerushalmim faction.
And good to see it's finally borne fruit. The whole notion that pictures of women are "immoral" in every way is offensive, especially when those Haredi moonbats don't seem to think ads with men aren't idol worship. They also fail to comprehend why it's wrong to vandalize private property they didn't pay for. Now it's time to fight back.

Update: one more article from the Jerusalem Post.

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.
