    Wolf, denial is not a place in Egypt, and there should not be many wolves there anyway. The truth hurts.

    There is no truth. You made an assertion (that MO rabbis decide halacha at random) and provided no evidence to that assertion. When you provide some evidence to your baseless accusation, we'll begin to talk about whether or not I'm in denial.

    In any event, apparently your mother never taught you proper manners. You see, when it's been pointed out that something you said is hurtful, the proper response is "I'm sorry" not "denial's not just a place in Egypt." Heck, I'm not even MO and I was really bothered by what you said. I can only imagine what the MO people on this board must be feeling about your callous remark.

    But what the heck, let's take this all the way then. I have a hat full of piskei halacha here and I think I'll determine what I'm going to do by just picking them at random. After all, that's how you think the MO determine halacha anyway, right?

    Well, here's one that says that I can cook on Shabbos. Oh, well, it's not Shabbos today, so I guess I can toss that one.

    Here's one that says that I can eat treif today. Oh, goody. It just so happens that I have a coupon for McDonalds that I can use.

    Here's another one that says that I have to shuckle precisely 73 times while davening Shmoneh Esrei this afternoon. I guess I'll have to follow that one since I pulled it out of the hat today.

    Now for the last one...

    ... ok, this one says I have to kill myself today as a kapparah for violating an aveirah with a chiyuv of the death penalty. Well, I guess I'm off to do that too. I have to follow it, since I pulled it out of the "random piskei halacha hat."

    No one wakes up one morning and starts to and lob spittle at children. This behavior is learned and taught by the likes of mmd and Health who have in fact shown us that they are part of a sick and disgusting group of individuals who will pay a heavy price for the chillel Hashem which they fomented. It is assur to give musser unless you how to give it and the halachos involved. This is no Pinchas situation. Bais Din; parents; a Rebbe are authorized to exact punishment; not any self-appointed pervert.

    Health...why do you feel the constant need to trample on MO? It's clear you don't agree with their philosophy, but there is no need to continuously bash, especially when the great majority of what you say shows that you are clearly misinformed and lack any basic understanding...

    And how did MO get brought into this discussion anyway? What does MO have to do with a man spitting on an 8yr old girl? Are you claiming that because the child is MO it was justified? (eventhough there is no indication the child was MO, not that it should matter).

    Is it because the spitter is Charedi, then according to you he was automatically in the right and the girl and her family brought this on herself?
    Because, this is what it sounds like...

    Anyhow; keep up with your nonsensical posts, they provide me with great amusement during an otherwise boring work day.

    This is nuts, absolutely nuts.

    I care about shemiras einayim and hilchos tznius. I am personally bothered when people are lax with these halachos. But these protesters are so warped in their actions that I can't believe anyone here is attempting to mount a defense for them.

    Let's not even get into the spitting on an 8-year old yet. That's in a league of its own. Why are these protesters even there? If what "Health" says is true, that they can see immodestly dressed women from their windows due to this school, how on earth can they justify running up to the school to get a closer look (while yelling at them of course)? Would a person concerned about exposure to radiation protest a nuclear power plant being built across the street from his house by running into the radioactive core? Pure shemiras einayim cannot be their motivation, because if it were, it would be their WIVES out there protesting. The men would stay as far away from the school as they could, choosing instead to complain through other channels. My wife would never want me to place myself in a situation where it would be certain that I would see pritzus. In fact, to do that is a violation of halacha.

    Now for the spitting. Some (or one) here have attempted to say, "the MO started it, so they have the blame for inflaming the crazies." Excuse me? That's an argument little children use. Real adults take responsibility for their actions, no matter what instigated the situation. If I assault a guy who cut me off in traffic, do you think the cops will excuse me if I said, "but he started it, he had it coming! He shoulda known that there are crazy people around!" Another argument made here to defend these men is "maybe the children are dressed ok, but the problem is the mothers walking the children to school are immodest..." Well then, why was it the 8-year old girl who got spit on? Did the monster miss the mother and hit the girl by mistake? Maybe he was accidentally facing children when hurling epithets and meant to face the mothers? I don't think so.

    Unfortunately we do have a tznius problem, and I think some people here are afraid that if they fully condemned the spitter, they would somehow be yielding ground in their argument. But this crime was not about tznius. If we allow tznius to be co-opted by sheer perversion, to be used as a weapon by debauched individuals to violate women with the veneer of "holiness", then we lose everything.

    Misogyny is not a mitzvah.

    Now that the Agudah; OU; RCA have strongly condemned these behaviors; it will be interesting to see which Israeli chareidi organizations join this group.

    BTGuy -"Because you dont need to take mussar then no one does?"

    Where did I say that? You came here to give Mussar -whom is this Mussar directed to? The Charedim in general or the spitters?
    You know full and well the spitters aren't reading posts in this website.

    "We all need to take this as mussar to avoid self-righteous indignation because we feel we are on a certain madraga that someone else is not on [yet]. The mussar can be for any point along the line of continuum and can include being harsh to spitting to fighting (literally and figuratively)"

    Again most Charedim don't need Mussar "to avoid self-righteous indignation" because we don't have any "self-righteous indignation". Why do you think we do? Is this something inbred in you from your childhood?

    "The fact the spitter was not pounced on immediately (by me) and he is not the only one participating in this assault on a Jewish child, is something that needs to be nipped in the bud immediately."

    He was not the only one, but there were a Few Charedim there, so what? And who says if 99% of the Charedim were standing there they wouldn't stop this guy?

    "If there were something I can do about it, please let me know. In the meantime, it is a lesson for all of us, even in CR, to watch how we behave when we feel someone is not doing something right."

    We should watch how we behave and most Charedim do; and since we do -we don't need any Mussar on this. Who are you to come here and give Mussar to all Charedim? Perhaps you are the one with self-righteous indignation?

    cherrybim -"It is assur to give musser unless you how to give it and the halachos involved."

    They aren't doing it to give Mussar!

    "No one wakes up one morning and starts to and lob spittle at children.

    So acc. to your logic of collective blame - No one wakes up one morning and starts to desecrate & burn Mosques and attack Innocent Israeli soldiers. This behavior is learned and taught by the likes of cherrybim and all other MO's and setttlers and their supporters; who have in fact shown us that they are part of a sick and disgusting group of individuals who will pay a heavy price for the chillel Hashem which they fomented. This is no Pinchas situation. Bais Din; the Israeli gov. are authorized to exact punishment; not any self-appointed vigilante!

    Hi Health.

    I hate to say it but either you have a comprehension problem, misunderstand the context of a post (which is epidemic in blogging and texting) or are being extremely childish in wanting to "win" when you cant really "win" with someone of a differing opinion.

    But, in this case, you do "win" because I am tired of having to spell things out and then you go off point to try to save your point, which you dont have to do since your opinion is valid to you and you own it, as I do mine.

    Sooooo....is it safe to say that we both think what happened to this girl was a bad thing and this is newsworthy and an embarrassment to Jews?

    the Aguda has not properly condemed these acts, I saw the statement and they blame the victims.

    If this didnt involve charedim and someone was stalking out 8 year old girls, They would be called pedaphiles.

    In fact one of the protesters said he was concerened about being led on by an 8 year old. he is a pedaphile.

    Exactly how much hair is "uncovered", Rav Falk, who by many accounts follows the most stringent opinion at all times, writes the following....

    "Hair which is difficult to contain in a regular well-fitted hair covering is halachically (according to law) exempt from this obligation. This refers to hair which grows on the temples next to the ear or on an exceptionally low hairline that extends below what a net or tiechel (scarf) would normally contain."

    The quote comes from Modesty- An Adornment for Life, Rabbi Pesach Eliyahu Falk (exact page number is somewhere in the 230s I believe, dont remember exactly where).

    He continues....

    "Although there is no obligation to cover such hair, nevertheless, if local shomrei mitzvos (observant Jews) are stringent and cover them, the halacha (law) obliges women who live in this locality to behave likewise."

    On the flip side...There is the opinion of Rav Moshe Z'l in E"H 1:58 (I dont do hebrew fonts) that seems to permit a woman to show one square tefach of hair. However, he adds that since a woman's head, on average, is about two tefachim wide, she should not allow more than half of a tefach to stick out.

    The question, I guess, boils down to who or what established/establishes minhag hamakom? Is minhag hamakom like Rav Moshe, or like the Poskim Rav Falk relies on (I dont remember who he quotes).

    BTGuy -"Sooooo....is it safe to say that we both think what happened to this girl was a bad thing and this is newsworthy and an embarrassment to Jews?"

    Getting spit on is a bad thing. Why do you make me repeat things a hundred times? I hate to say it but you must have a comprehension problem!

    Now is it Newsworthy? Well if after the Israeli media finish discussing in gory detail all the crimes that occur on a daily basis in Israel, then I guess they can mention it. But, I really don't think they would have the time, because the News is only about a half-hour or a hour long. Just discussing one crime in detail would take up the most time. But for some reason (I can't imagine why) they only have the time to discuss this "Major" crime of spitting.
    I guess all crimes in Israel have stopped because 1. - They all are watching the Charedi bashing all day in the news - so there is no time for any criminal activity.
    Or 2. - They have all become BT's, B'H.
    Barring these two reasons - they should be discussing the most violent crimes first!

    As far as "embarrassment to Jews", there is a topic on this in the CR, and I have many posts on this. Check it out!

    I guess acc. to your logic I shouldn't have used the word "vigilante" when referring to ones who attack Soldiers and desecrate & burn Mosques. They should be referred to as "MO Murderers or Terrorists". Because with their violence they could have easily murdered s/o; much more than s/o who spits and protests Tzinus can come to Pedophilia!

    What am I going to do with you? lol

    You say, "Not defending the spitter, but his spitting was a reaction to the provocation. Yes, they shouldnt start up with bringing their kids to school with them not dressing properly!"

    Whoa!! I want to avoid a whole schmear of verbiage between us, so just answer me this, if you dont mind:

    You said that spitting is bad and that you are "not defending the spitter". Do you really think no one will see any semblance of a defense for the spitter in your above quoted statement????

    This is why we go round in circles, I believe. Maybe you express yourself with using words and terms more loosely than I am used to.

    Perhaps you might want to tighten up your thoughts in writing to avoid misrepresenting yourself.

    I believe you see a point to both sides. I have to add, though, that even if the girl came to school dressed in shorts, one would have to be a complete idiot to spit at that child in the name of Torah.

    As individuals, we all have a need to correct ourselves. Sometimes as a community that may be the case too.

    Health,

    This [why men who supposedly care about shemiras einayim would congregate around a girls school with improperly dressed girls/parents for any reason -recap mine] is a logical question. But I've posted here a few times -there is a reason and s/o should start a topic about it.

    Please, provide me a reason. I cannot think of any.

    Noone here defended the spitter.

    I don't know what you are talking about -name s/o who is afraid to condemn it?

    You.

    Example:

    Not defending the spitter, but his spitting was a reaction to the provocation.

    This is a defense of the spitter... providing a justification. Your adding "not defending the spitter" to this defense of the spitter does nothing but make an oxymoron. Like when the P.A. says, "oh, we condemn suicide bombings, but the suicide bombers are just reacting to Israeli oppression..." No, the spitting was not a reaction to any provocation. It was an act of abuse, an assault, pure and simple.

    You are starting to sound like the Freye or MO haters.

    I'm not afraid of your threatened labels.

    Every single Charedi must proclaim from the rooftops and scream we are against spitting or we all are complicit with the spitters.
    Typical double standard!

    As a Jewish male who cares about guarding my eyes, this was a crime that was committed in my name, in my defense! So yes, I or my leaders have a responsibility to speak out. If someone heaven forbid killed a motorist and told the police that he did it so that "Avram in MD" would have a quicker commute, you'd better bet that I'd condemn it!

    Does Every Single MO or settler condemn publically the desecration & burning of Mosques and attack on soldiers?

    The Yesha Council and Im Tirtzu, among other prominent officials in that movement did unequivocally condemn the violence.

    Does Every Single Freye Jew (Chiloni) condenm the crimes that occur daily amongst them?

    Should we follow their lead?

    I'm not interested what's going on in your mind or anyone elses.
    You claim to be knowledable in the English language. Explaining why s/o reacted the way he did is Not necessarily defending his behavior. And in this case, I said clearly what I hold.

    "I believe you see a point to both sides. I have to add, though, that even if the girl came to school dressed in shorts, one would have to be a complete idiot to spit at that child in the name of Torah."

    So what? And do you think the mother isn't responsible for provoking such a response -whether it's shorts or a different Untzinus dress?

    The picture was in another Frum website, in like the first article on this.
    Since then she wisened up or s/o wisened her up. "Make it look like you did nothing wrong - No provocation -so it's only the Charedims' fault for this whole incident. You are perfectly innocent."
    And you fall for her new Tzinus look. She knows the cameras are rolling. It's like going to Manhattan to watch the ball drop and saying - "Wow, e/o in NYC dresses Tzinus".

    Most people would say -"Don't bother me with some lunatic's drivel". Unless you're feeling guilty. People don't defend any accusation hurled at them, unless they have some guilt for whatever occured!

    "Does Every Single MO or settler condemn publically the desecration & burning of Mosques and attack on soldiers?
    The Yesha Council and Im Tirtzu, among other prominent officials in that movement did unequivocally condemn the violence."

    You didn't answer the question! I asked -Did Every Single one condemn it?

  37. You know, I've been following this thread on and off for the last couple of days and it seems to me that through all the discussion of sleeve length, hem line and hair covering, not to mention a few random rants from Health the main point is being missed. The unterste shura is that there can be no possible justification for cursing and physically assaulting an eight year old girl!

    It doesn't matter what she or her mother was or wasn't wearing. The actions of those sub-human yahoos are irredeemable and I assure them and you that they cannot do teshuva for their monumental aveiros and that the have no cheilek in Olam Haba'a, and if they or anyone on this thread doubts my ability to make such a statement (that means you, Health), look me up in 120 years.

    Incorrigible; eccentric; somewhere between mean and average; sometimes only a bit over the top; arbitrarily engaged in cynicism.

    Irredeemable? Can't do teshuva? Wow. I'm pretty sure you are wrong on that count.

    No cheilek in olam haba? Pretty sure you are wrong on that count also.

    sub-human? Ok, you are getting a bit carried away. I don't think a simple assault makes you sub-human. Actually, nothing you can do makes you sub-human, but I recognize that we don't like to group ourselves together with really bad people, and sometimes like to think that murderers and rapists are sub-human. But it is totally uncalled for here.

    Now, some people call each other sub-human, when they are attempting to de-empathize with them. Like Whites did to Blacks, Nazis did to Jews, Tutsis did to Hutus, etc. If that is what you are doing, then you are the dangerous one who belongs in jail with them.
