Tel Aviv Legalizing Strip Clubs?

[Media Source*]

(Jerusalem Post) The Tel Aviv municipality's recent decision to grant business licenses to striptease clubs has provoked the ire of women's organizations in Israel[...]

"We believe that the women working in these establishments deserve protection, which they cannot receive if these clubs are not licensed," [Elchanan Meshy, director of the municipality's business licensing department] said.

Meshy believes that there are currently only four of these strip clubs in operation inside of Tel Aviv, although the guys on the street could probably reference a few more to the government. Several women's organizations have expressed outrage of the licenses, comparing them to the legalizing of prostitution.

Although there are always health concerns involved with people "swapping more than spit," one wonders what the true motives for politicians for legalizing these types of businesses.

(Jerusalem Post) Liora Minka, who chairs the city's Committee for the Status of Women...called the argument made by the municipality in favor of the licensing process a "whitewash." "I am outraged by the legitimization of what is essentially the humiliation of women and trafficking in women as a form of artistic performance," Minka said.

Minka is probably right, as women who trade their bodies to satisfy another's pleasure generally carry little respect around most communities, and if anyone is doubting this, try listing strip teaser on a job resume and see how far that gets one through the door! Unfortunately for Minka, it seems that Tel Aviv is following is following its religious sister, Jerusalem, as the holy city has granted permission for a strip joint of its own!
