Taliban Fighters

Dry Bones cartoon: Taliban, fundamentalism, Jewish Culture, Jewish State, anti-Zionism,
Israel’s struggle against anti-Zionist, anti-female, anti-Israeli, intolerant fundamentalist Jewish thugs goes on.

The latest, from YNet:

Hundreds protest women’s segregation in Beit Shemesh
“Hundreds gathered in Beit Shemesh Tuesday for a demonstration protesting the growing demand by radical religious elements to exclude women from public life in Israel.

“Public outcry against the radical demand to shun women from public events and for segregation between the sexes on busses, sidewalks and even in lines in the supermarket, became especially strident over the weekend when seven-year-old Na’ama Margolis was spat on in a Beit Shemesh street by haredi man who claimed she was not dressed “modestly enough.”-more

Journalistic Accuracy

It’s a Jewish thing.

Great catch by Rabbi Jason Miller, who noted the Daily Mail‘s clueless caption on this photo of real estate mogul Jared Kushner and his wife Ivanka Trump:

According to Miller, the Daily Mail first published the photo online with a caption explaining that “Jared, wearing a casual black jacket, pushed little Arabella Rose’s pram along the streets on their way to lunch. He also held some flowers in one hand – perhaps a gift for his wife.”

Of course, that’s a Lulav in Kushner’s left hand and an Etrog box in his right, and the two were apparently on their way to or from Sukkoth services.

But don’t just pick on the Daily Mail — these kinds of mistakes are more common than you think. A gallery:
