Orthodox Israelis Spit On Whorish 8-Year-Old Girl For Going To School
An American girl attempting to walk to her Jewish school in Israel is subjected to daily taunting and physical intimidation so bad that she says it makes her afraid to go to school. Her tormenters aren’t fellow children, but rather adult men upset by the presence of the “immodest” girls attending school in their ultra-Orthodox neighborhood. And now, the town’s male residents are clashing with police and media over their the gender integration they say insults their faith. Eight-year-old girls can be such whores.
The case of 8-year-old Naama Margolese, who was born in Chicago, has upset some Israelis, and for good reason. She says she’s afraid to walk to her all-girls school in Beit Shemesh, near Jerusalem, because of taunting from Ultra-Orthodox men. They spit on her, call her a whore, throw rocks, and shout at her. As a result, Naama says her “tummy hurts” when she walks to school.
Not that it should matter, but Margolese isn’t full glitzing down the street in a Nicki Minaj outfit, gaily skipping off to Toddlers & Tiaras & Kippahs school during these impromptu stoning sessions; she’s walking to an Orthodox all girls’ school in her uniform, which consists of a long skirt, a high-necked, long sleeved shirt. But the clothing of Naama and her classmates, modest by nearly any other standard, are not modest enough for the Ultra-Orthodox Jewish men of Beit Shemesh. Parents attempting to escort their daughters to the school are also subjected to the same treatment.
