Jerusalem police escorted a 23-year old woman out of the Western Wall Plaza Sunday morning after she removed her clothes.

Police and Western Wall Plaza guards covered the young woman up as she was removed from the area and taken in for questioning.

Witnesses say the woman suddenly began stripping in front of the Western Wall, prompting worshippers to notify plaza guards.

“She came in [to the Plaza] fully-dressed,” a witness told Channel 2. “Then at one point she started to undress, acting as if she had a purpose, like she wanted to make a provocation.”

“People started to shout and cry out, and as she headed towards the men’s section, she was stopped by force.”

The guards removed the woman to a nearby restroom and called police. Officers covered the woman up and transferred her to a police station for questioning.

According to the initial investigation, the woman appears to be suffering from a mental illness.

Police say the young woman has been returned to her parent’s home following interrogation and a psychological evaluation.

UPDATE:

 

Apparently, she may have had a psychotic episode, and did not ‘streak’ to make a political statement or on a whim, as was first thought, so I heeded to the parents request in their public plea to remove the clip, thinking I would feel the same had this been one of my daughters.

    I think psychotic is a bit of an exaggeration, certainly not the right word.

      Steve, you may be right. But hey, I’m a layman. – This is what the dictionary says:
      Psychotic: suffering from psy·cho·sis

      noun
      a severe mental disorder in which thought and emotions are so impaired that contact is lost with external reality.

      Someone psychotic could be delusional, such as hearing and following through on voices telling them to undress and walk around naked.

      Have you ever heard of Jerusalem syndrome? (Google it!)
      – It is “a group of mental phenomena involving the presence of either religiously themed obsessive ideas, delusions or other psychosis-like experiences that are triggered by a visit to the city of Jerusalem.”

      Maybe a specialist, a psychiatrist could weigh in….. “Is there a doctor in the house?”

      You are 100% right, Steve !

      “psychotic” is not the right word

      Exhibitionnist, is.

      It is not a mental disorder.

      • israelandstuffcom says:

        Except, when taken by the police, it was determined she had a mental breakdown, which is why she was taken to her parents and not released under her own recognizance. Her parents guaranteed to have the daughter checked.

        So, I may have used an incorrect word….but you’re still wrong.

          Certainly it is a mental disorder. Whether she is certifiable or not is the question. it is a silly incident which should just be forgotten. Half the population looks like that with their clothes off and the other half knows it. So the police did the right thing in clothing her and removing her from where nakedness is inappropriate.
