U.S. Jewish Paper Apologizes for Photoshopped Image

The photo which had been altered

The AP reports:

An American Orthodox Jewish newspaper apologized on Monday for digitally deleting Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton from a photo of President Barack Obama and his staff monitoring the raid by Navy SEALs that killed Osama bin Laden.

The Brooklyn weekly Di Tzeitung, which says it doesn't publish images of women, printed the doctored photo Friday. It issued a statement saying its photo editor hadn't read the fine print accompanying the White House photo that forbade any changes. The newspaper said it has sent its regrets and apologies to the White House and the Department of State.

Who cares? What's the big deal?

Their bigotry, and not only just this particular disparagement of women, reflects negatively on all Jews. Do we tolerate extremism when the perpetrators are of our faith? Are they to be tolerated because they are a fringe newspaper? How can one persuade their readers that this attitude to women is the same class of disease as antisemitism? If they discriminate against women then they should also accept discrimination against Jews and all "lesser" races as being okay? No way!
