Israeli misogyny, racism, bigotry, reaction, and obscurantism is never worthy of coverage in US media

"Attorney General Avichai Mendelblit announced Wednesday that he intends to ban the joint male-female prayer service at Jerusalem's Western Wall scheduled for Thursday by the Reform and Conservative Judaism movements .  The non-Orthodox movements have held two such prayer sessions over the last month, with Mendelblit's approval. The purpose of the services, held in the Western Wall plaza adjacent to the separate prayer areas for men and women, is to protest the stalled discussions over the creation of an egalitarian prayer section at the Wall."
