More on Morons

Eric Westervelt had a great story on ME this morning that’s a good coda to The World’s report on sex-based segregation of buses in Israel. It describes ultra-orthodox Jews, known as Harediim (or charedim), moving to suburban areas of Israel that have been spared them in the past.

The Harediim then seek to impose their own sort of Sharia on non-orthodox residents, putting up signs demanding modest dress and hurling rocks and abuse at those who don’t comply with their not-very-Project-Runway fashion sense.

There goes the neighborhood!
