This extraordinary picture of a veiled Chasid was recently taken at Ben Gurion Airport.

Its wearer must either fear the threat of some particularly pestilential mosquitos or, more probably, wants to protect himself from the sight of women with bare arms or short skirts.

Before you mock this as an outlandish fundamentalist fad, let us commend it as a fashion that more could follow.

If men are genuinely worried for their spiritual welfare by the way women dress, let women wear what they please and men don the veils.
