Clashes in Dizengoff Square following a gender-segregated mass prayer. September 24, 2023/None
The storm of prayer and gender violation on Yom Kippur also spills over into the world of sports – even in completely wrong contexts. Likud MK Tali Gottlieb hinted Wednesday morning at "hypocrisy" on the soccer field, and pulled out the "proof" of this: a screenshot from the "Lan" ticket website, where tickets are sold "for women only" at the match between Maccabi Haifa and Bnei Sakhnin that will be held tonight (Wednesday, 20:00, Sport4).
"Praying separately? God forbid... A separate stand for women at a soccer match between Maccabi Haifa and Bnei Sakhnin, absolutely yes. Woe to the hypocrisy," Gottlieb wrote alongside the screenshot in question, showing a ticket for sale in the lower stand of the stadium in Haifa, with the caption at the bottom: "Entry to the south stand will be allowed to women and children up to the age of 12 only."
Whoever sent MK Gottlieb the screenshot in question is probably far from familiar with the circumstances under which these restrictions were announced. Maccabi Haifa received special permission to house the southern stand with women and children up to the age of 12 before the law, despite a punishment imposed on the club as part of the war against violence on the pitches.
MK Gottlieb's tweet

The special permit granted by the Football Association to Maccabi Haifa is intended to promote and increase the presence of women on the field. Of course, women are allowed to enter any other stand, and there is nothing or half about the MK's hints of gender segregation on the courts.
Many netizens tried to blame Gottlieb for her mistake, asking him to delete the erroneous post, which defames soccer fans. "Whoever wrote this to you is fussing over you," wrote one, while another wrote: "Welcome to the torch of the court! You're exactly, but exactly what we need."
