Much ado about sexism! Hillary Clinton wiped from the pages of History

Much ado about sexism! Hillary Clinton wiped from the pages of History
by Ari Siletz

A couple of ultra-orthodox Jewish publications airbrush women out of news photos as a matter of policy. This time there's a fuss because Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Audrey Tomason, director for counter-terrorism have been taken out of the famous "Osama killing" situation room photo (above in three versions). Rabbi Jason Miller is miffed at them saying that altering photos is deceitful and also manipulative of history. But the marketing consultant for one of the newspapers says
that this is a modesty policy in the strictest interpretation of Jewish
law. Rabbi Miller adds that the newspaper's publisher is a woman.Go figure!

I don't see what the fuss is about. I did just the opposite with the photo- leaving out all the men--and the photo hardly changed in historic value: some people in a room are looking at something, and the photo by itself gives us no idea what! All three versions of this photo are meaningless.

By the way it is said that the White House has given a strict warning not to alter this photo. So not only is the photo meaningless, adding meaning is not even allowed. Anyway, if you see me handcuffed in court along with some ultra-orthodox Jews in orange suits, you'll know why.

For bringing into limelight the Jewish Taliban! Of couse we also have Christian Taliban and other American Talibans, but why do we go all the way to Afghanistan to hunt Taliban rather than in the American hearland and especially New York is a mystery that only be  revealed to those who see the world in the context of the big global picture and a superpower that would rather spend far more resources for its excursion in foreign lands than within the comfort of its homeland and thus denying the fact that taking care of the homeland will more effectively take care of helping the far-away lands if that is ever the goal.

Hillary is not bad looking. Pictures of a young Hillary

by Anahid Hojjati on

Couple comments from yahoo that SK mentioned in her comment state that Hillary is bad looking. In my opinion, for someone her age, she is about 63, Hillary looks good. Here are some links to pictures of a young Hillary:

Do you have to relate any comment to your own imagination of my points of view? 

 otherwise what the hell do not fish in the muddy water means ?  

Hasidic judaism is just as backward as Talibans if not worse ..... and they are not even living in Afghanistan but in Brooklyn .... this idiocy is not taking place in another country ......

here more just for you among the coments on net

The Hasidic Jews in Brooklyn are absolutely out of their mind!! They pick the worst location to live too: Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Where you got hipster chicks riding bikes around with their buttcracks hanging out, while at the same time the Hasid women won't walk on the same sidewalk as the Hasid men do! @#$% is that??

I will never understand these extreme misogynistic religions. Would they prefer that women were invisible or nonexistent. Ultra-orthodox Jews, extremist Muslims, fundamentalist Christians all have this fixation that a visible woman is a sexual temptation. I have always thought people who follow extremist religious cults, were pretty weak-minded, but this makes it seem that all men in these cults are such sexual perverts they must avoid all hint of women. 

 Old myths die hard. The attitudes of ancient, fundamentalist religions dominated by men still reflect the cave man's fear of the power and mystery of women. How can they bleed so much every month and not die? (Let's call them unclean.) How can they swell so large and bring forth a child? (Better keep them locked up for a while.) They are also enchantresses: magical, mystical, frightening, and powerful. They are demonized and adored, deified and desired. In other words, women scare the hell out of men. Always have and probably always will. There's a lot more truth than anyone will admit- especially holy (horny?) men.


Hilary is a Babe! Totally!

by Faramarz on

Great One Ari!

What are the visitation hours at San Quentin?


Soosan Khanoom,

If this was the Taliban, the women and children would be in another room and not allowed to watch!

Please don't fish in muddy waters!

Soosan Khanoom

LOL.... some comments on yahoo

by Soosan Khanoom on

Obviously it was some feminist group that photoshopped Hillary into the photo in the first place. hehehe

How dare wimmins get in power.... get back to the kitchen!


you don't have to stay in the kitchen all day you can do some laundry too.

If their paper considers Hillary Clinton sexually suggestive, they must be living in a cave 


I hate women so i'm ok with it


Can we say Jewish Taliban.........


Bill Clinton wishes he could make her disappear too.


Ridiculous! Whether they like it or not, we will not be chased back to the kitchen and have our shoes confiscated. Ever.

Ari, I like the picture with all men out

by Anahid Hojjati on

makes your imagination run wild. Like aliens have landed and they are only after men; maybe to take them to space to mate with them.  So now women in high positions are left alone to take care of the problem.

We are so used to seeing government pictures with no women or only few, however, when situation is reversed, it is very unusual and good for imagination.


This is what you will get...

when you guide your policy based on religion and each religion has its own set of corks.
