Two conservative/orthodox Israeli newspapers have blotted out pictures of women ministers in PM Netanyahu's new cabinet.

See the attached BBC report:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/7982146.stm

The article goes on to say that the motive for this censorship is that some ultra-conservative sects believe publishing photos of women is immodest.

More interesting, I thought, is the reference to kosher telephones. Please, can someone tell me: what is a kosher telephone?

Publishing pictures of those who run the country is 'immodest'??

Wow, talk about out of touch.

I guarantee you that at no point in Torah, Haftorah, or Talmud is a telephone mentioned.

At first I was going to suggest that it was one that you had to soak in salt and water overnight.....  Smile But I gather that they are just old-fashioned phones that can't do what modern ones can - so it's just another 'layer' of censorship really:-

"The “kosher” phone carries a stamp signifying its approval by rabbinical authorities, who will recommend haredi community members to take out contracts with MIRS Communication.

"The Motorola handsets have been modified to disable internet access, SMS text services and video and voice-mail applications.

"Growing concern that new-generation mobile phones could threaten the conservative, ultra-Orthodox values and way of life, particularly among the young, led to a rabbinical committee being formed to examine the issue."

I can guess that you'd now have elements of the Israeli and American intelligence services after you.  Wink You know that you aren't allowed to criticise Israel for anything.

They could nuke London tomorrow and it'd still be acceptable.

I think you're exaggerating, Cpd.  Smile

I'm sure that if that did happen, the Israeli Government would express 'grave concern' and also say 'we are investigating.'

Mind you, two weeks later they'd say that they'd completed their investigations and concluded that 'the allegations have no foundation'...............

And the USA would block every condemnation in the UN Scurity Council with a veto.  Yeah sure


But back to the topic:

what would these papers have done when Tzipi Livni would have won the election? Would they replace every photo of her with a pic of Lieberman?  Wow!

Its not like anyone would've noticed.  Wink

I don't know, probably something similar to kosher washing detergent. From what I have heard, its a sales gimmick. The kosher logo is a trademark and the user company has to pay for its use and since it helps sales with people of Jewish faith, companies choose have to 'certify' their product kosher. Feel free to correct me.

This is really nothing short of ridiculous. It's really hard to believe that in this day and age things like this happen... mind blowing.

Well, the haredim are a conservative group of people, just like the Mennonites in the USA.
There are groups with the community that don´t recognize Israel, but those are a minority.

Creepy culture for sure, but at least it doesn't seem to include violence.
