Israeli airline gives in to sexism


From daily The Morning Star in Britain, 25 June 2018:

ISRAEL: State airline El Al faces new discrimination allegations after moving two female passengers from their seats after ultra-Orthodox men refused to sit next to them.

El Al said yesterday that discrimination against passengers was “forbidden” and it did its utmost to serve a “wide array of populations and travellers.”

The Israel Religious Action Centre, which led a similar lawsuit in 2016, accused the airline of breaking its commitments.

From Tel Aviv to El Al, Israel Is Backsliding on Gender Segregation. Thousands attended a segregated Chabad event on Rabin Square after a judge ordered the mayor to allow the partition. ‘What they’re saying is that we need to be tolerant of intolerance’, a legal expert tells Haaretz.
