She typically commands attention, but not this time for the whore Kanye West married!                                                                                                                        But on Tuesday, Kim Kardashian was cropped out of a photo for what may be the first time ever.                                                                                                      The 34-year-old reality TV star was captured dining in a non-kosher restaurant in the Holy Land alongside her husband, rapper Kanye West, 37, and Jerusalem’s mayor, Nir Barkat, on Monday.                                                  Following the outing, Mr. Barkat posted a photo of him and the famous couple on his Twitter page, writing that he had joined Kanye and Kim ‘to toast and celebrate hosting them in our beautiful city.’                                               However, the next day, only Kanye and Mr. Barkat were pictured in the photo, reprinted in an article on the ultra-Orthodox news site, Hakikar. Kim, meanwhile, was obscured by a copy of the $692 bill.

And in another photo, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star – who was captured sitting at the dinner table, with one hand touching her glossy brunette locks – was reportedly blurred out.                                                         The article itself – which condemned Mr. Barkat for dining at a non-kosher venue and for the pricey bill (including tip) – referred to Kim as ‘the wife’ of singer Kanye, the Washington Post reported.                                                  Ultra-conservative Jewish news organizations typically avoid printing photos of women because they deem them sexual in nature – and have cropped other famous females out of photos in the past.                                                             Kim and Kanye were visiting the Israeli capital on Monday with their 22-month-old daughter, North, and Kim’s sister, Khloe, in order to baptize their little girl at the site of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion.                                                           Although they were perhaps not portrayed favorably in the Hakikar article – which was headlined ‘Barkat hosts famous couple in non-kosher restaurant’ – not all of the press shared the same view.                                                         Other photographers enthusiastically followed reality TV’s first family as they visited Jerusalem’s Old City – the reputed location of Jesus’s death – to go to the Armenian church, St James Cathedral.

Clearly overwhelmed and honored by the pilgrimage, Kim took to Instagram to share a couple of pictures from inside the holy building, revealing the family had had an early start to visit the site.                                                                  ‘Good morning Jerusalem! We woke up really early to see the site where the crucifixion of Jesus Christ took place,’ she wrote. The image showed the ornate interior of the 12th century church.                                                                             A second shot posted on the star’s Instagram page showed herself and Kanye crouching under the statue of Jesus Christ on the crucifix. But as it was heavily filtered, the couple were hard to see.                                                                      The centuries-old church in the Holy Land was the location of choice for the Kardashian-Wests for the baptism of their toddler daughter. And as they approached the building, they fended off fans.                                        Archbishop Aris Shirvanian, an Armenian church official who appeared slightly perplexed by all the commotion over the high-profile couple, revealed the family had arrived for a baptism ceremony.

Kim Kardashian’s daughter will be baptized and become a Christian officially and a member of the Armenian church,’ Shirvanian said, adding: ‘All I know is that she’s a famous personality.’                                                                                  A source told E! that Khloe, who attended the ceremony in sneakers and ripped jeans, is North’s godmother while the priest acted as her godfather (which is an option where there isn’t one).                                                            The insider described the ceremony as ‘so special’. North was dressed in a white gown and her father was wearing the same colour. Kim opted for a striped wrap-around dress and flat sandals.                                            Afterwards, the family dined with Mr. Barkat at Mona Restaurant. Members of the family had touched down Monday in the Holy Land via private jet for what was described as a private two-day visit.                                                        Hakikar’s decision to obscure Kim is not the first in the world of ultra-Orthodox newspapers.

In January, Israel’s The Announcer digitally removed female politicians from an iconic image of world leaders marching through Paris following the Charlie Hebdo terror attack, the Post noted.                                                                        The newspaper cropped the front-page picture to exclude Danish Prime Minster, Helle Thorning-Shmidt – and airburshed out German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo.                                                         At the time, it was reported that the women were likely removed from the historic image, taken on January 11, so the newspaper would not offend its highly devout Orthodox readers.                                                                           Swiss President, Simonetta Sommaru, was left as a blur behind a crowd of faces, while the EU’s foreign affairs and security chief, Frederica Mogherini, was left out entirely.                                                                                                    The women were among 40 world leaders who lined arms with their male counterparts to lead a million people through Paris, in a statement of international solidarity following the massacre.
