Beit Shemesh's Haredi mayor ordered to remove sharia-like signs

In an important legal victory this week, the corrupt Haredi mayor of Beit Shemesh has been instructed by a Jerusalem court to remove the "modesty signs" from street walls within 3 weeks:
A group of Israeli women in the central city of Beit Shemesh scored a significant win over religious ultra-Orthodox hardliners in their city after they managed to force the Municipality to remove so-called modesty signs.

The Jerusalem District Court ordered Beit Shemesh Mayor Moshe Abutbul that he had three weeks to remove the illegal signs that instruct women to dress in a modest way.

Some of the signs require women to wear long sleeves and long skirts and no tight-fitting clothing, while others instruct women not to walk on sidewalks near places where men gather such as synagogues study halls.
If Abutbul won't respect the law this time, he should face serious fines and other penalties. He's acted in cowardice by refusing to take any proper action, all because he doesn't want to turn off his corrupt constituents. He's simply not qualified to be a politician.

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.
