   Post by ‎אריה מכלוף דרעי Arye Machlouf Dery‎. Aryeh Deri is talking about what he is fighting against. He points as an example to the City of Tel Aviv that just awarded 14 women with the title of "Yekirat Ha'Ir" - valued resident, or something of the sort. Among the 14 women selected, in the second largest city in Israel, not a single one of them is mizrachi (sefardi). Deri goes on to say that they are transparent, and when you are transparent you get responses like "there were no worthy candidates" (which was the response of the head of the selection committee). Deri goes on to say how upsetting it is, and that he is going to submit a law guaranteeing full equality to mizrachim, etc. etc. Deri may be right. I don't know what happened in this selection. Maybe no worthy mizrachiyot happened to be nominated this time. Maybe last year there were mizrachiyot awarded. Maybe it is discrimination. I don't know. Deri might be right. But is this really a fight for Deri to wage. Are there women, mizrachi or otherwise, in his own party? Were women selected to lead Shas? Could no worthy women be found? In his own party it is a halachic or social problem but in Tel Aviv it is ok? Can Deri really talk about the mizrachi women who might have been slighted, when he slights the mizrachi women on a daily basis? ------------------------------------------------------ Reach thousands of readers with your ad by advertising on Life in Israel ------------------------------------------------------
