      Taliban Welcomes His Wife


      Here’s is a photo of the chauvanist, woman-demeaning, Taliban Fishman, waiting at the Ben Gurion Airport to welcome his wife and daughter home to Israel after their short visit to America to attend a family wedding.

      Welcoming my wife, my Shechinah, my queen

      A Jewish husband is called upon to love his wife as himself and to honor her more than himself. He is to treat her like his queen, and place her desires before his. He is to satisfy her physical and emotional needs. He is to always keep in mind that in pleasing his wife, he brings pleasure to the Shechinah, the Divine Presence in the world. And should he cause his wife sorrow, he brings tears to the Shechinah, G-d forbid.

      Judaism does not, as feminists claim, in any way or form, denigrate woman, or relegate them to secondary status. The woman is the pride and honor of the house, the source of a Jewish home’s holiness and blessing. Therefore, the great sorrow and pain that we feel when we see the holy Daughters of Israel parading themselves in the streets in an immodest fashion stems from our great endearment and esteem for them, and not, G-d forbid, the opposite. Certainly the Jewish women who conduct themselves in this fashion are not to blame for their behavior, but are rather victims of the perverse, promiscuous culture fostered by the "enlightened" nations of the world. We pray with all of our being that Jewish women all over the world rally under the banner of "Modesty Now!" and return to embrace the holy paths of the Torah. In doing so, they will redeem themselves from the self-demeaning bondage of trying to attract attention to themselves by exposing their wares like plucked chickens hanging in butcher shop windows. And by restoring modesty to our national camp, they will return the Divine Presence with all of its mighty holiness to Am Yisrael, paving the road to victory over all of our enemies.
