Skip to comments.[Fathers' Rights/ Families Being Torn Apart by Social Workers] Philip Marcus Angers Israeli Parents
Posted on 11/10/2014 2:50:15 AM PST by UnPromisedLand
The Coalition for Children & Family and Hakshava are applying for a monthly permit to protest against Philip Marcus in Har Nof, Jerusalem. Organizers say Marcus is scheduled to speak at a parental rights conference being held tomorrow evening at the Israeli Bar on Daniel Frish #10 in Tel Aviv. He has become a public figure against father's rights, says E. It is important that the public also hear the other side of the argument. E refers to an article Marcus wrote in the Jerusalem Post (http://www.jpost.com/Opinion/Op-Ed-Contributors/Fathers-protest-is-misguided-344043). Philip Marcus first made headlines when a divorced father threw a shoe at him and hit him between the eyes. This inspired a popular online computer game (http://www.gamegonzo.com/2014/10/17/go-home-marcus-13/). Marcus published his thesis claiming parents are not entitled to human rights. Activists published dozens of articles, satires and cartoons protesting Marcus. He was forced into early retirement after claiming homosexual fathers may be pedophiles. He is also known to claim that family court judges replace divorced fathers as fathers of orphans. E says that jurists like him have caused Israels family court to be one of the most corrupt of any nation in the OECD. Now he is traveling the world trying to convince family courts worldwide to adopt his disastrous policies. Father's Rights groups are reaching out to Gay Rights groups to join our march against Philip Marcus on Hai Taib street the first Friday of every month, says E. We would not need these protests if he would stay out of the public eye. It would be a step of good faith if he would cancel his speech at the conference tomorrow.

I see that you call yourself UnPromisedLand. Do you hate Israel?
Social workers are encouraged to find problems where none exist, to create caseload and steady work.
Read “Accused” by Michael Farris.
And then of course when there is serious and actual child abuse, they can’t be bothered to investigate or follow up.
(the list of substantiating cases are too numerous to mention)
Very uneven enforcement. If parents act odd, even with jobs, housing, medical etc, they may be required to do a lot “services”, eg therapy, psych eval, parent classes, but if parents act in attractive manners, kids can get returned even without housing jobs, cars, driver licenses, license plates, car seats, parenting classes, drug rehab.........
I am aware of the virtually irrebutable legal presumption in Israel that a child belongs with its mother instead of its father (where it can’t be with both) and the court’s liberal use of protective orders keeping fathers away from their children in such cases.
I know that this is a legal fiction that in many cases is not not an accurate depiction of the facts, and that it causes deep harm to the children and that it devastates the fathers both personally and professionally.
I am not aware that there is corruption involved; rather, it seems to me that it is a matter of dangerously bad social policy being applied across the board. On the other hand, I am not in Israel and I have not had personal experience with Israel’s domestic relations system, so I can’t state categorically that you are wrong.
I would rethink your FreeRepublic name. You are Israeli citizens who love Israel and defend her with your lives in the IDF, but I think that anyone who sees criticism of Israel coming from someone who calls himself UnPromisedLand will assume that you condemn everything about the State. This will affect the way that your criticisms will be accepted, and not in a way that you will want.
This is what feminism has done to Israel.
I would think that a feminist approach would make it easier for a father to retain custody. After all, having a child at home can distract a woman from her job outside the home.
The feminist approach is to demonize men, break up the family, then get women dependent on the government. It’s a tactic designed to promote communism.
I can't quite make all this out ...
