A headline caught my eye the other day.
BEIT SHEMESH, Israel — A sign outside a row of synagogues directing women to walk on the other side of the street has turned this town near Jerusalem into a front line of a raging national debate about the imposition of strict social codes by ultra-Orthodox zealots.
A community of 86,000 about a half-hour’s drive from Jerusalem, Beit Shemesh has a growing ultra-Orthodox population. The town has become a cauldron of tension in recent days, with crowds of black-cloaked men assaulting television crews and facing off with police, pelting them with rocks and eggs.
These dumbasses actually believe that women shouldn't walk on the same side of the street as men, among a plethora of other ridiculous nonsense that they espouse.
Then, in this morning's paper...
BETHLEHEM, Israel - The annual cleaning of one of Christianity's holiest churches deteriorated into a brawl between rival clergy Wednesday, as dozens of monks feuded over sacred space at the Church of the Nativity. The monks were tidying up the church ahead of Orthodox Christmas celebrations in early January, following celebrations by Western Christians on Dec. 25. The fight erupted between monks along the border of their respective areas. Some shouted and hurled brooms.
Jesus H. Christ! I don't need to go into the equally ridiculous shenanigans of Islam to make this point. All three of these religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, were given birth by the Jews. Each of them claim Abraham as their father. They each worship the same deity. Each of them have caused more trouble on this earth and been a bigger pain in the ass than all other religions combined.
The Jews created this mess, they need to clean it up.
God, protect me from your followers.
