Messing with the wrong woman

Morning Edition, February 12, 2007 ∑ A group of Israeli women are fighting back against what one called "Taliban-like" Jewish fundamentalists who order women to sit in the back of the bus and to abstain from wearing "immodest" clothing on public bus lines used primarily by ultra-Orthodox Jews. The women have filed a lawsuit in Israel's High Court aimed at reforming the bus lines. Some of the women see the bus dispute as part of a larger struggle against the growing influence and radicalization of the ultra-Orthodox in Israel.

This was probably a set up but they're asking for it.

At least you are not a troll. Just goes to show that fundamentalists of all stripe are playing the power game. Maybe the Christian and Jewish fundies are jealous of the Muslim fundies being more successful at it.
