The soft bigotry of low expectations

Reuters correspondent Allyn Fisher-Ilan, who has a penchant for vile anti-Israel propaganda and internet astrology, reports on the Israeli High Court's query into the government's policy of subsidizing ultra-Orthodox buses where women are required to sit separately from men.  Previously, we have noted that on issues involving the restoration of Jewish property, Fisher-Ilan fails to identify or credit the High Court for its decisions.  Having now discovered an issue where she apparently sympathizes, Fisher-Ilan happily names and cites the Court and its Arab Justice Salim Joubran:
"What about tolerance, that positive human attribute?" Joubran added. He said there were no such problems in Arab areas where "everyone sits together". 
Except of course, in Israeli government-funded mosques.

We wonder when "feminist" stargazer Fisher-Ilan will get around to reporting on the way Israeli Arab women are treated in their communities and in their homes.
