Jerusalem - Israeli Haredi Newspaper Removes Two Female Global Leaders From Paris Unity Picture
Paris – A Haredi newspaper removed the image of German Prime Minister Angela Merkel and the Prime Minister of Denmark Helle Thorning-Schmidt from a picture of global leaders marching in Paris.
The women were both taken out of the photograph but Netanyahu remained.
The newspaper, called “HaMvaser,” is published by MK Meir Porush of United Torah Judaism. It reworked the image to remove the women in following with Haredi spiritual rules that ban publishing pictures of women, since it considers the female body to be immodest.
Some Haredi newspapers also refrain from publishing the names of women.
Israels Walla! news (http://bit.ly/1xUZd5a ) was first to report on this.
