She is not Israel’s “Rosa Parks.” There are hundreds of women who have refused to move to the back when ordered. Some simply remain in their seats.

Now, I am a haredi Jewish grandmother, mother of 9, grandmother of 29, disabled, walks with a cane. I would be the perfect candidate for “Rosa Parksdom” but not any of these other secular ladies.

Fair point.

Haaretz is not without a bias or agenda.

Uh. How did Jerusalem Post (which indeed is not without a bias or agenda) become Haaretz here?

re: #1 Alouette

Agreed. The comparison is tacky, at least.
None of the women in this situation can really be compared to Rosa Parks for a simple reason - there is no legally mandated bus segregation in Israel. That’s the key difference between this situation and the Rosa Parks situation. That guy was simply a hooligan, he didn’t have the full power of the state behind him.

The op ed is predicated on the Haaretz piece.

Yet Rosa Parks is only mentioned by JPost.

This will not end well. There has to be compromise on both sides. I have a nightmare of someone opening fire on a bus.

Haaretz article also mentions Rosa Parks, on the front page. (Titles on Haaretz front page do not always match the actual title of the article)

Anyway as I said above, there are dozens, maybe hundreds of Israeli women who are “Rosa Parks” wannabees, who stand at the bus stop while non-segregated buses go past, waiting half an hour or longer just for the “mehadrin” bus to come along so that they can cause a scene.

Ah, thanks.

(I will still note that JPost’s use of Rosa Parks is still quite separate from the short snippet on the Haaretz website FP, and the JPost post is much more in-depth with that meme. If anything, that means that Israeli MSM run with the “Rosa Parks” meme regardless of political orientation.)

I can think of about a half dozen situations this year in which women caused a scene on a bus, each one claiming to be the “Israeli Rosa Parks.”

It would make a good reality show.
