Phyllis Chesler Supports W4W?

Women For the Wall seems to have caught a leading member of WOW being too honest once again. Phyllis Chesler was a founder of WOW and now is part of the “Original WOW” that refuses to permit peace in the traditional women’s section. Yet here’s what she said on WOW’s Facebook Wall:

WOW Board knows that it has driven away many Orthodox and non-Orthodox worshipers by their religious practices, non-stop desire for media attention, their willingness to criticize Israel in North America and Europe during the years of the Al Aqsa Intifada.

I wonder what those who said WOW just wants to pray in their own style and don’t want media are saying now. Other than “oh no, she told the truth!”

Yes, Facebook is a time killer. But sometimes you catch important news…

    What is not said here is that Phyllis Chesler, although one of the original members of WOW, is a well-known critic of the Arab and Muslim world for their oppression of women. She is not exactly a left-winger or supporter of “Palestinian rights.” Her comment should be seen as one of criticizing the movement for the left-leaning positions of some of its leaders. In any context other than WOW, we would consider her one of the non-Orthodox “good guys.”
