Jewish Taliban

Think the Muslim Taliban are horrible people?  Well they have some pretty stiff competition from the Jewish Taliban.

Israel Defense Forces soldiers should choose death before they remain at army events which include women’s singing, a top settler religious leader said in an interview on Thursday.  The comment made by Elyakim Levanon, the rabbi of the West Bank settlement of Elon Moreh, came after earlier this week, 19 reserve major generals sent a letter to Defense Minister Ehud Barak and IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz, imploring them not to allow harm to come to women’s service in the army as a result of religious soldiers’ demands.

Taliban, pure and simple.  This guy would rather have men dead than allow them to listen to some woman sing.  That’s lunacy.  What crazed fundamentalism of the sorriest sort.  Yes, Taliban.
