Israel is [Almost] Banning the Import of Fur

While individual cities across the globe have done so, Israel is set to be the first country in the world to ban the import of fur for fashion. The only problem?

The one exception, of course, are particular Haredi Jewish groups in which the men wear shtreimels, often made out of sable fur. And apparently those - by far the biggest offending group - will be getting a religious exemption. But it is a step in the right direction...

PETA of course is thrilled. The last time I remember them concerned with Israel, was when, as they have done several times, Palestinians packed explosives onto a donkey and sent it towards an Israeli checkpoint. Maybe now they won't think we are all a bunch of asses.
