  • Chaya Raichik just absolutely EMBARRASSES 'creepy dude' Alejandra Caraballo for stalking her on Threads (LibsOfTiktok vs woman-identifying dude)

    Would you look at that? What is being referred to as a Lefty Twitter Wannabe that is supposedly free of hateful content (because you know, Elon Musk ensuring people of all political persuasions have a voice on his platform is hateful) sure seems hateful if you're in any way, shape or form Right-leaning. Some have even called it the 'Twitter Killer,' but so far we are less than impressed. Look at what's happening to Libs of TikTok's Chaya Raichik: As a woman, it’s pretty creepy when a man is obsessed with you and harasses you on social media. —...

    ACOM @ACOM_es: The same Hafi Mayar who has tried to assassinate Salman Rushdie, with a Twitter profile (posting) king the killing of Jews, with constant proclamation in favor of Hezbollah, and with his album-groupie of Iranian financiers of terrorism. You didn't see it coming ? What's up?Aug 13, 2022 ___Description of image: Hadi Matar retweeted an image of a big knife and the words: "The knife, Zion," from AliShoeib1970 on May 5, 2022.

    Israel’s new hard-line government has made headlines – the bigger demographic changes that caused it, not so much Israel’s new government is the most right-wing and religious leadership the country has had in the 75 years of its existence, as many observers have pointed out. And this style of leadership may last because it represents the next generation of Israelis. You don’t have to look far to see that the religiously observant Orthodox and ultra-Orthodox sectors of Israel’s population are growing quickly. The new minister of Jerusalem affairs has 12 children. The minister of national missions — one of the...

    Arab Islamic "Palestinian" butchers targeting another peaceful, pious town * Elad, a Haredi town (which means, overwhelmingly avoiding serving in the army - conscientious objectors) is what is called 'within the Green line.' * Days after Hamas head called to atrack Jews with axes & shooting. Prepare the axe - he said. * Attackers hit with an axe to the head. * The attackers shouted Allah Akbar. * It came hours after a councilman spotted illegal Arab residents staying and he was rather arrested by an (Haaretz type) ultra liberal police. * Hamas blessed the butchery. * "Palestinians", such as...

  • Why I Am Hopeful About the New Israeli Government

    Evangelical Christians who have become used to the effective leadership of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s longest serving prime minister, may have grave concerns about the newly formed coalition government. But I believe there is good reason to hope that this new government might be just what Israel needs. When I was asked by the New York Times about evangelical reaction to the potential ouster of Netanyahu, I replied, “Your average American evangelical would think it’s a tragedy if Netanyahu is out. It will be similar in many of their minds to Trump losing to Biden.” Despite those concerns, however,...
  • A Jewish Revolt Against Lockdowns: Haredim take to the streets and courts against Gov. Cuomo.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | October 8, 2020 | WSJ Editorial Board
    Haredim, as ultra-Orthodox Jews are called, translates to “those who tremble.” But as New York’s leaders are learning, the Haredim tremble before God—not politicians. This week they are protesting in the street and courts against new harsh lockdown restrictions on ZIP codes in Brooklyn, Queens, Binghamton, and Rockland and Orange Counties, including several Haredi neighborhoods. Imposed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday, the rules also shut down schools, restaurants, bars and gyms. But the Governor singled out religious institutions in “hot zones” for special limits. No more than 10 people allowed. A quorum of 10 men is the bare minimum...

    It looks like Israel will be heading to a third election. It seems both sides, Netanyahu’s right and Gantz’s left-center cannot get the 61 votes needed to get a majority in the Knesset. There is one villain in this, and one victor.The reason Netanyahu could not get a victory is that Avigdor Lieberman refuses to throw his weight behind a Netanyahu coalition, unless the special privileges tendered to the religious right are done away with. For years, the religious right have wrested a lot of concessions from the Israeli state, such as draft exemptions and control of marriage. Secular...

    With political machinations and intrigues in full swing following Tuesday’s election, both Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Blue and White leader Benny Gantz have said they want a national unity government. Netanyahu,however, said that he wants such a government to include his ultra-Orthodox and religious-Zionist allies, which Gantz and his party oppose. Support for a national unity government without the ultra-Orthodox parties is actually widespread, with some two-thirds of the Jewish Israeli public backing such a coalition, including half of all Likud voters.

    A prominent haredi publication has raised eyebrows with an open letter in Hebrew and Arabic begging Arab terrorists not to attack haredi Jews, by highlighting the fact that most haredim do not visit the Temple Mount. The letter was published in the haredi weekly Mishpacha Magazine this morning (Thursday), penned by Mishpacha’s Deputy Editor, Aryeh Ehrlich. It comes after a month of escalated, daily terrorist attacks against Israeli civilians and security forces by Palestinians. False rumors that Israel is planning to “change the status quo” on the Temple Mount to allow Jewish prayer have been used as a pretext by...

  • Lapid: Terrorists Don't Distinguish Between Jews

    Minister of Finance Yair Lapid today sent a conciliatory message to the haredim (ultra-orthodox), whom he called "brother", telling them that the equal sharing of the burden law would benefit them and give them a sense of participation and dignity in Israel. Earlier today, the Perry Committee on drafting haredim approved its recommendations, including criminal penalties for haredi draft dodgers. "In recent years, this committee has brought down coalitions and ended careers," said Lapid about the Perry Committee. "The fact that we have resulted in that, in three years, 70% will be drafted is a badge of honor for the...

    Dozens of copies of a booklet calling on ultra-Orthodox Jews to emigrate from Israel were handed out last week near the main synagogue in Jerusalem’s Mea Shearim neighborhood, on the backdrop of the battle between Israel’s haredi and secular publics over the attempt to draft yeshiva students to the Israel Defense Forces and introduce core subjects into haredi schools’ curriculum. Although the booklet was written about 15 years ago by Rabbi Moshe Dov Beck of the extreme Eda Haredit faction, it was handed out once again this week in light of the haredi draft issue, which has reached the High...

    The Women of the Wall would have us believe that they are defending the Western Wall for everyone. Considering that after 25 years and massive public relations efforts the group can hardly gather 100 women on a good month, the assertion sounds ludicrous. Can you imagine so small a fringe group demanding to do as it pleases at the Vatican? Westminster Abbey? St.Patrick’s Cathedral in New York? Mecca? At any place of worship in the world? That’s not freedom of religion, that’s anarchy! The Women of the Wall can argue all they want that the Kotel is not a synagogue...

    The Times of Israel ^ | 4/11/2013 | STUART WINER
    An ultra-Orthodox daily newspaper proposed the establishment of an autonomous zone within Israel where the strictly religious community could thrive, immune to the influences of the secular state. As the Knesset works on legislation that could see most ultra-Orthodox men required to serve in the IDF or other national service frameworks, and planned budget cuts threaten the community’s already strained economy, Hamodia, the mouthpiece of the ultra-Orthodox Agudat Yisrael party, suggested self-rule was the best answer to unwanted secular intrusion. “Autonomy means independent administrative rule for internal matters without sovereign political status, with legal and financial independence and police, but...

    The Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee hosted Major General Orna Barbivai Monday and discussed the Tal Law and the need to enlist hareidim to the army. However, an NGO that advocates for the rights of religious soldiers says that elements within the IDF are purposely provoking kippah-wearers. According to Eliyahu Lax, Chairman of the Organization for the Religious Soldier, public promises to make army service more religious-friendly do not materialize on the ground. Lax said that in Bahad 1, where the Officer's Training Courses are held, "they did not give cadets time for prayer, there has been women's singing...
