On a Jerusalem bus driving in Givat Shaul on Kanfei Nesharim street, a Haredi man asked a secular woman to move to the back of the bus, according to a report in YNet.

At that point, a secular man, also on the bus, got up and punched the Haredi man in the face and then ran off the bus.

The Haredi man did not require medical attention, the assailant got away, and the bus continued on its way.

    The Haredim on the bus make a chillul l'shem.

    I love this paper. It is short and tells me everything about Israel, what interests me. And I adore the Pictures every day.

  3. Eva Feld says:

    I love that man! "Rosa" stay put! The bus is for everybody. Haredi, get over it. If it weren't for a woman you wouldn't be alive. "Rosa" stay put wherever you wish.

  4. well said. Thank Goodness there are gentleman in this country. What would that Haredi's mother & sisters think?

  5. RIGHT ON! KICK HIS ASS!

  6. There are still normal people. Well done.

  7. Dan Silagi says:

    I'd have knocked that Haredi fool into next year, myself.

  8. The secular man is of course to be condemned for the violence. His act was criminal. The Haredi man however is to be condemned for his attempt to dictate where another person should sit. His action shows that kind of selfish inconsiderateness of others, which unfortunately we have been seeing so much of from the Haredi world.

    Shelly Leibowitz Hi Shelly
    that's a good question. I don't think they do think. We were just talking to a man who moved from Beit Shemish. The Haredim are forcing more & more separation. there is a mall for medical clinics that sits empty because the Haredim wanted one mall for men & one for women & no one would use this one. Haredi women & even young girls are wearing burkas. It might be that this guy's mom has been brainwashed to believe what all the men believe, that there must be total separation of men and women & women should not be seen in public (without a burka).

  10. If it happened to me, I wouldn't care if I sit in the back or in the front of the bus. In the end I know and G-d knows that I am smarter and more "awake" than the rest of them,. No need to make a point. LOL!

  11. Sally Maxine Isaac says:

    A ridiculous piece of narrow minded behaviour that provokes foolish and violent responses.This is the 21st century we are ALL equal and Israel is a secular state.Which needs to be insisted upon by the Government!

  12. Ruth Hirt says:

    For the three of them, I just am sad…

  13. Dear Ruth, I found some of the story's very interesting. Thank you :)

  14. When the physical attack may be considered rude – likewise are remarks dealing with religious superiority and sexist behavior. Don’t think that modern women (or men for that matter) just turn the other cheek to be verbally abused.
    A video, the other day, showed a tempted robbery in a pedestrian tunnel. The whole incident was caught on the public surveillance camera. A cellphone is grabbed from a young woman who runs after the robber and hits him in the back. The man’s turning in defense, but suddenly the woman kick the crook in his testicles. Immediately he bows to the ground when a direct kick to his face finishes him. He lies on the cement floor while the young woman grabs her phone and runs away. Bystanders let the female race and let the young guy unattended. Obviously the woman has fighter-experience. So be aware intruders!

  15. Nanette CohenRayman says:

    and that is not real Judaism.

  16. Ruth Hirt says:

    Isn't that just devastating, Virginia? All these three Folks have their own precept in the entire scenario. May they all be one and go back to the fold of Eloihim the YHVH and serve HIM in Spirit and in Truth.

  17. Yechiel Baum says:

    why is the supposed religious man talking to a woman not related to him.
    Worse, how stupid he is to start up with any Jewish woman! They are tougher than the HAredie men!

  18. Binyamin Ben Katzman says:

    Shelly Leibowitz They think (for the most part) that it is ok, because that is the women's role (in that world).

  19. ElliottWittert says:

    I think the charedi man deserved to be punched in the face by the secular man because absolutely under no circumstances may someone force a person to move to the back of the bus regardless of what the reason is unless its the mishtarah or the driver or any security official
