The Covered Faces of Evil on the Temple Mount

This scene is already not new, and the Israeli authorities don’t seem to have a handle on the situation. Muslim woman with their faces covered – whether for religious reasons, for payment by Islamist organizations, or for their protection against Israeli authorities – harassed Australian Jewish visitors on the Temple Mount this week. What better way to celebrate the week marking International Women’s Day that to have women hide themselves while asserting their rights to be religiously intolerant, loud, and hateful on what supposed to be one of the holiest places in the world.
