Women of the Wall threatened Jerusalem Online News with legal action regarding the article published there which also appeared here on Matzav.com. That is why the article was removed from Jerusalem Online.
This is a routine scare tactic of radical leftists, since they only can tolerate having their own views published and are opposed to dissent. However, all of the facts in the article are documented and have been checked numerous times before publication.
I am a serious investigative journalist and would not have published it otherwise.
Women of the Wall had the article taken down because they threaten news organizations that don’t publish what they like. Since I proved beyond a doubt to my editor that Women of the Wall representatives lied to him about the accuracy of the article so he would be pressured into taking it down, we are discussing how to proceed. However, they can’t threaten journalists and then use the fact it was taken down as proof that the article is wrong.
