45. That's nice Msanthrope

And feel free to lash out at me as much as you want. I'm a citizen of the U.S.A. and unless you're a citizen with rights to vote in Israel your righteous indignation directed at me will do you as good as directing it at anyone or anything else.

Whether you like it or not it is a matter for Israelis to work out and your declaration that you're free from obligation to understand the real meaning of the conflict is unconvincing. The Orthodox Jews in Israel murdered Yitzhak Rabin. They actually throw stones at people who violate their fundamentalist vision of the Sabbath. The issue here isn't just a matter of sexism. It is fundamentalism versus secularism and that debate is probably meaningless to you. To them, it's something different.

Israel is a secular state. I don't know this but I'm pretty sure that the rules at the Wailing Wall are some kind of compromise with the Orthodox Jews in Israel. You don't know that either but you're very ready to get yourself all riled up about it.

It's their country. Not yours.
