Haredi factions refused to take part in WZO's singing HaTikva

It's sad to discover that Haredi movements involved with the World Zionist Organization decided to continue casting a poor image of themselves, as they continued refusing to recognize a woman's validity in singing:
Members of the World Zionist Organization Executive from across the world stood on the stage at the Three Kings Hotel in Basel, Switzerland, during the opening celebrations of the 125th anniversary of the First Zionist Congress on Monday. But certain groups were missing.

Executive members from the WZO’s haredi political factions, Eretz Hakodesh and Shas, were not among the many officials onstage who sang “Hatikvah.”

The Jerusalem Post asked them why they did not participate in the event. The only Shas member who participated was Yanki Deri, head of a WZO department and son of Shas leader Arye Deri. He participated in the event and in the gala evening. However, he did not join the executive members onstage for “Hatikvah,” presumably because a woman led the singing.

Eretz Hakodesh, an American haredi group, did not directly address the Post’s questions regarding their absence from the event. Sources in Eretz Hakodesh gave a few reasons explaining why they had their representative avoid the celebrations.

The first reason was the kashrut of the event. The participants received three meals a day during the conference. The meals were all made by a European kosher catering company, but they were not Mehadrin, a stricter version of kashrut. Sources in Eretz Hakodesh said the level of kashrut was not suitable for them.

They also said they did not feel comfortable attending a performance led by a female singer, let alone singing onstage alongside her.
Well that is hugely disappointing, and entirely uncalled for, because of the separatist mentality it symbolizes when they refuse to recognize a woman's humanity extends also to her singing abilities. It also provides ammunition for liberals to use against conservatives. Yet this wouldn't concern USA-based leftists at all with the way they're going, invalidating women in favor of transsexual men.
A source in the WZO Executive said: “The fact that the haredi members haven’t participated in the largest event our movement [has] hosted in decades, emphasizes that the haredi parties don’t really believe in Zionism but are just in it to receive funds and influence agendas regarding Judaism.”

Another senior official said: “If the kosher food was good enough for haredi participants... such as Judge [Rachel] Freier and rabbis from around the world, it should be kosher enough for the haredi members.”

Another executive member said: “If they really wanted to come, the organization would find solutions to all of their problems, yet they didn’t really want to come. Many of them were also asked by their leaders or constituents not to participate in this huge celebration of Zionism.”
Well see, this is exactly why any Haredi faction who won't participate in this important event should be expelled from the WZO. They're turning it into a farce, and that's got to cease. Come to think of it, the WZO representatives should address this publicly, why it's wrong for Haredi members to take such a separatist position. Above all, it provides the MSM with ammunition to use against the WZO, one more reason why this is so terrible to read about.
