25. Women aren't allowed at the wall when the men are.

Israel is a misogynistic place...as far as I can tell. To a certain degree (and that's a pretty big degree...interfering with the performance of one's job). They say it arises from their religion. Women aren't allowed to study their religion like the men are, etc., etc. (See movie "Yentl." ) In the orthodox groups, it's my understanding that it's VERY restrictive to women...they are married off, don't have civil rights, can't get a divorce or take their children with them if they leave the sect, etc. (see movie "A Price Above Rubies" with Renee Zellweger)

But male U S officials ALWAYS still go to the wall, knowing all this.

I support Israel and the Jewish people. But there is this side of things that is offensive and anti-human rights, it seems.
