In yet another example of how Judeo-Christian-Islamic religion disdains women, female members of Israel’s new cabinet were photoshopped out, in some Israeli newspapers, as the AP reports:

Two women serve in Israel’s new Cabinet, but some Israelis would rather not see them.

Newspapers aimed at ultra-Orthodox Jewish readers tampered with the inaugural photograph of the Cabinet, erasing ministers Limor Livnat and Sofa Landver.

Ultra-Orthodox newspapers consider it immodest to print images of women.

The daily Yated Neeman digitally changed the photo, moving two male ministers into the places formerly occupied by the women.

That’s right, images of women are offensive to these people! There’s still a lot of growing up left to be done in Israel, I guess.

It’s ironic that this happened in Israel, of all countries, since it was one of the first modern nations to have a woman as head of state (Golda Meir). One would have thought that the lesson of her tenure might have influenced these folks for the better … but I guess it hasn’t worked out that way. Oh well, I suppose someday the world will mature enough to accept that women (GASP!) actually exist, but that day is not today, sadly.
