A 31-year-old Jerusalem woman was cruelly beaten and threatened with death by members of the 'modesty squad' who took it upon themselves to interrogate her about her relationships with men, an indictment filed Thursday by the Jerusalem Prosecution reveals.This sort of stupidity cannot be tolerated from anyone, Muslim, Jew, or Christian. Still, I'd like to point out that Israel is making a concerted effort to put an end to these "modesty squads" whereas in some Islamic dictatorships such agencies are branches of the government. The reason an attack like this is news when committed by a Jew or Christian is because it's rare. The reason an attack like this is news when committed by a Muslim is because it's so very common, and almost always more violent.
