proof Yated is more liberal than Hamodia

I think the Yated must be undergoing some changes...and becoming more liberal in the process. they are now at least more liberal than the Hamodia newspaper. They will soon be going out on a marketing campaign billing themselves as the newspaper for the liberal Haredi.

How do I know this, you ask?

A few months ago Hamodia printed an image of a drawer of shoes with the womens shoes edited out. While the policy had been to blur out images of women, they took it to the next level when they edited out the shoes.

Yated Neeman however printed the following picture in their newspaper yesterday.

If you look carefully and pay attention to the details, you might notice that they took a picture and swapped out a female protester for a male protester. Though they swapped out the protester, they left the original lady's shoes.

So, Hamodia wont print pictures of womens shoes, but Yated will. Clearly yated is more liberal than Hamodia!

  2. Get into the 21st century - who says they weren't his shoes? (ok so the body position doesn't fit the feet - but maybe he was doing some stretching exercise?)

  3. No one can accuse them anymore of being against technology. In the past, only slower, cruder photo-editing methods were available, but now anything can be falsified in a trice.

  4. I'm surprised that this picture made it through my Internet Filter. I have a filter on my computer so that I won't be exposed to racy pictures like the one that you posted which includes women's shoes.
    I'll report the breach in standards to my ISP to make sure that no more p-nographic images are displayed on my machine.

    In the mean time I'll wash my eyes with bleach and dunk in the mikva as tshuva for looking at this picture.

    I am just wondering bidieved how bad is it to look at such a picture. Like, do feet count if there is no body.
