She’s not comparing these men to Terrorists. 2 wrongs don’t make a right. What these men do is wrong. Extremism is unhealthy whether in judaism or in Islam

Two wrongs don't make a right

What does Islamic terrorism have to do Jewish extremism? Why are you conflating two separate issues? Not mentioning Islamic terrorism does not detract from the central argument, namely, that Orthodox men do cause disturbances on airplanes, and harass women who they deem immodest. These are not points of contention; they are facts. Attempting to dismiss these legitimate grievances by claiming that there are even worse actors in the world, is a non sequitur.

I’m pretty sure the issue of Islamic terrorism is “conflated” with Jewish extremism is because Ms. Lipsatz’s article appeared on Al Jazeera – A Muslic-Arab sponsored website. And when A Muslim-Arab site accuses JEWS of misogynistic/terroist behavior – well that’s RICH.

Anytime a Muslim says anything negative about Jews, theres an issue. Point blank, Al Jezeera saying we’re the problem is a joke. Thats like McDonalds calling Subway out on the obesity problem in America.

Self hating Jew that she appears to be. I think women should learn from her to be proud about tsnius. Ipcha Mistabra–take the counterintuitive approach. This is a call for the women of our community to go back to the timeless core value of tsnius. We don’t NEED anyone to put up signs,because modesty is really part of the internal psychological makeup of HUMANITY. When we forget and there’s a vacuum, who makes a noise? It’s the enemy in an abaya and her liberal, naive American (Jewish) abetters. Start hearing your inner, still, small voice, abide by Hashem’s Torah out… Read more »

With all due respect did they also mention that the Muslim women cover everything.but their eyes and when flying they won’t let a man touch them only a woman and they also would not sit next to a man on the plane just that if you aren’t Jewish all is legitimised. Plenty people ask to switch places on the flight is that considered a chilul Hashem- most definitely NOT it’s considered normal yet if it’s a frum man it’s extremism,chilul Hashem etc. There is nothing wrong with asking for modesty in a Jewish community even if there are non Jewish… Read more »

sorry – this article is ridiculous. There is absolutely no excuse for these men’s behavior.

Saudi Airlines has separate seating on its airlines, as well as family seating, because men do not want their wives sitting next to other men.
Why would a woman want to sit next to men, other than her husband? Why would a parent want their daughter sitting next to a strange man?

Anti-Semitism also incuded Arabs…they are ‘Semites’ from ‘Shame’ son of ‘Noach.’ More clear: anti-Jewish, or Yisroel, Israel. These ‘feminists like Raina Lipsitz won’t be known for their research or honesty…don’t waste your time with their writings. These articles are an insult to the writer, her family and country. ‘Stupid America?’

The frum male passenger must have felt uncomfortable...

The frum male passenger must have felt uncomfortable...

Maybe he was on one of those long flights with part of the flight happening during the dark night hours. The fact that we have become so desensitized to tznius doesn’t make this passenger an overzealous extremist. Flip the scenario: Would you want your pretty teenage daughter being forced to sit next to a strange man on an overnight flight? BTW, Al Jezeera,I don’t recall this same writer addressing the fact that female passengers in burkas make male (and probably female) passengers alongside them feel mighty uncomfortable and understandably insecure. My guess is if you’d ask them, they’d opt to… Read more »
