jedihirsch: Lady Indica: supichoo: [www.nydailynews.com image 635x826]WTF?They're Orthodox Jews, they don't even drive, hence the car service.Really sad story. Hope the baby makes it. :(As an Orthodox Jew, I'm sorry to inform you that we drive cars. Just in Brooklyn maybe people just don't own cars at all.Lady Indica: Slaxl: No!You don't get to include that picture in such a sad story. I can not be the only person currently struggling with the laughter and sadness.No. Bad newspaper including that photo. It's not just the hat, I'm not going "haha, foreign cultures are funny and weird". His head... his neck, why is it doing that? It's like someone photoshopped it to bring his head 6 inches closer to her. She looks like she's been forced into the wedding. But the hat is funny...They were orthodox she might have been forced into it. :(Sorry "Forced Marriages" are a myth. Jewish law prohibits it. There were a few cases of some ex-hassidic jews making such claims but last I checked they had many of their claims disproven and then they disapeared from the media's "lets bash Haredi Jews again" tour. She just looks nervous.Don't attack people you know nothing about. I have many Chasidic friends and they are wonderful people. Lets just wish the best for the future of the young child born 3 months premature and without parents. Ok
p51d007: Had this been a muslim couple, I doubt there would be a lot of pokes at how they were dressed, but, since it wasn't a Christian, Hindu, Buddha or Jew, it's full speed ahead with the anti-Jewish humor.
BarkingUnicorn: Glendale: ACunningPlan: Felgraf: I hope they catch the hit and run drivers.That said, if she was ejected from the cab, I suspect she wasn't wearing her seatbelt....Orthodox so mightn't be familiar with seatbelts & whatnot. Besides if she was in early or active labor, sometimes it's a bit tricky to get comfortable.....Being ejected was probably briefly uncomfortable. There's also the "I'm in a cab, seatbelts aren't needed" mentality.Also the "don't want my baby crushed by a seatbelt in case of accident" mentality. Really, folks, do you think that kid would have survived if it was belted?
