Arutz 7: Livni: I won't let Bennett decide on Kotel 
Gender war in the Cabinet? Justice Minister says she won't allow Minister of Religion to decide on Women of Wall.

Livni = White
Tzipporah = Bird
Tzippy Livni = "White Bird"
Justice Minister Tzipi Livni announced Wednesday that she will not allow Minister of Religion,Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home party), to solve the Women of the Wall (WoW) controversy by promulgating new regulations for Kotel prayer.

"I am informing you of my principled stand on the matter, before you make any new regulations," she announced, in what she said was a letter that she sent to Bennett. "I accept the court's decision and I, too, believe that it will make a meaningful contribution to the advancement of women in Israeli and religious society."

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
How many times to I have to point out to everybody that the so-called "Women of the Wall" are not the problem? I guess a lot.

"The advancement of women in Israeli and religious society"
"Advancement" is a synonym for "progress," the good ol' Western/assimilationist, galuth (exile) mentality buzz word. The left (and center, and right) consider the religious, particularly Haredim and the ideological settlers, founding hilltop communities and working on agricultural pursuits to be "primitive," and in need of some sort of psychological help or "rehabilitation." After all, "they" don't look like us, they don't act like us, and they certainly don't think and feel like us.

I wish that Haredim and this brand of settlers would finally wake up and get together on more issues than they already have. And, yes, they have made a little bit of progress in this direction.

What has Minister of Religious Affairs Naftali Bennett done so far to show that his focus is on Torah, even though he heads the "Jewish Home Party," formerly the "National Religious Party?"

Not much.
Bennett: Having difficulty keeping his kippah on.
What has he done to prevent Prime Minister Netanyahu's building freeze building in Yehudah and Shomron (Judea and Samaria)?

And what does Bennett's plan for carving up Eretz Yisrael (the Land of Israel) look like? Not really any different from Arafat's ysh"w.

So, what should make us think that any "plan" (read: "compromise") regarding the so-called "Women of the Wall" would be any more Torah-focused?

Absolutely nothing.

Livni vs. Bennett

Bennett vs. Livni

Either way you slice it, it all comes up the same. This illusion of a real disagreement will result in a another illusion of resolution, and the K'nesseth will end up rubber stamping what the Erev Rav Israeli Supreme Court essentially, already legislated from the Bench.

These women will be able to do whatever they want, even at the "democratic" expense of those who disagree with them.
