Aish HaTorah: Extremist, and Sexist to Boot

I posted earlier this week about the fundamentalist group Aish HaTorah's involvement in the distribution of "Obsession," the DVD mailed to swing voters that is meant to suggest that Barack Obama is some sort of Manchurian Muslim. I neglected to mention a whole set of other issues about Aish HaTorah, including and especially its pre-modern attitude toward women, pluralism and non-Jews. But Goldblog readers have filled the gap! Here's one such reader:

Please know how much I appreciate you exposing Aish for what it truly is. For a long time I have been trying to make the case to several women in my community, telling them Aish's extreme positions against Jewish pluralism and tolerance in addition to their extreme and dangerous political positions on Israel.
