I just read an article on Arutz Sheva about demonstrations against the Red Cross in E”Y who regularly visit Arab prisoners but have not visited Gilad Shalit. Does anyone know of, or have the wherewithal to start, a petition to the Red Cross?December 3, 2008 8:55 pm at 8:55 pm #627194SJSinNYCMember
Another reason why the Red Cross does not get a dime of my money (they also refused to help my grandmother and great grandmother during Kristallnacht).December 3, 2008 9:03 pm at 9:03 pm #627195
It’s an old story. when my grandmother’s family was travelling in Europe at the beginning of the war, the red cross was helping her mother. As soon as they saw her father with his beard and peyos, they suddenly dissappeared.December 4, 2008 3:03 am at 3:03 am #627197

The International Red Cross were in cahoots with the Nazi’s YM’S.December 4, 2008 2:12 pm at 2:12 pm #627201
BYMaidel, thanks, good idea. (And between you and me, let’s keep vocal in the YWN coffee room 😉December 4, 2008 3:34 pm at 3:34 pm #627202Yanky55Participant
I was informed by a relative in E”Y that a protest against the government for doing NOTHING to try and get him released was held last week. (Why have a tayna to Red Cross?)
Simply shutting off the water and electricity to Gaza should get him released.
You know how many people showed up? About 1000. SHAMEFUL!!!!!!December 4, 2008 7:44 pm at 7:44 pm #627203
Re yanky55: you’re right, of course, about the culpability of the government. But it is important that international organizations be held accountable, and that people realize what they’re really all about.December 5, 2008 4:26 am at 4:26 am #627204
tzippi: i was just thinking about how i havta take a look at that closed thread titled, “how YWCR is being taken over by BY girls”….i guess this is what youre referring to! lol im definitely with you on this oneDecember 7, 2008 10:44 am at 10:44 am #627205
Instead of petitioning why not make a tehillim project for him. Petitioning to god is better than to a congressman.
BYM-i was wondering why there was so much gossip in the coffe room!December 7, 2008 5:23 pm at 5:23 pm #627206
c’v im highly insulted, yashrus20. but youre absolutely right about the first two lines of your post. i think mdlevine is in the process of creating a “tehillim project” for ppl in the coffeeroom. its one of the topics, you can check it out.December 7, 2008 9:50 pm at 9:50 pm #627207
BYM-sorry it was a joke, but ill be sure to check out that thread, thanx.December 8, 2008 4:22 am at 4:22 am #627208
yes i know dw i wasnt that insulted lol, but when i hear the word “gossip” i think rechilus and loshon hora…December 8, 2008 1:15 pm at 1:15 pm #627209
by maidel, what grade are you in????
Did I mention that you crack me up?December 8, 2008 2:45 pm at 2:45 pm #627210
In light of the report on the general news page, we have to keep Gilad ben Aviva in mind when we daven (Tehillim, when we say “Matir Assurim”, etc.).December 9, 2008 3:29 am at 3:29 am #627211
intellegent, i am in the process of applying to seminaries…i guess that means im in 12th grade–im glad to be able to bring a smile to your face lol but what exactly do you find so funny??December 9, 2008 9:45 pm at 9:45 pm #627212
I think the fact that a pre seminary girl is talking the way you are does. But its a good thing it means you don’t need all that heebeejeebee stuff to make you inspired. Where as alot of girls tend to be superficial and need that stuff to break the superficial bubble. The thing which you have that they dont is when they come back after seminary alot come back to “reality”. But for you this is reality.December 10, 2008 12:06 am at 12:06 am #627213
first, i would like to thank yashrus20 for providing me with an answer to the question on many applications and in interviews…what makes you unique and different from everyone else? lol jk but i appreciate the analysis of me. i have to say that it doesnt come naturally for me to live in “reality.” i had to work for it, and hard, and inspire myself, because no one was doing it for me. BH though, i go to an excellent school which provided tha basics for long-lasting inspiration. key words here being “long-lasting.”
i love the “heebeejeebee” description 🙂
maybe i shoudnt apply…its causing enough stress as it is lolDecember 10, 2008 12:56 pm at 12:56 pm #627214
Bais Yaakov maydel
I guess that’s why you asked me if I live in Israel. Looking for a place to go on shabbos? Well sorry but by the time you come here, I’ll be on the other side of the ocean so you’ll have to find someone else. Or you’ll be smart and take the $20,000 and use it to start off with after you’re married instead! It can really come in handy then. Go to seminary in Brooklyn or Lakewood or Detroit or wherever. It does not hamper shidduchim at all! (Unless you are in the crowd where coming to Eretz Yisroel is a MUST but then again you seem to be proud of your BAIS YAAKOV status and if that means Yeshivish, most people are fine with in town sems. If you need people in any of those towns, I can hook you up. LOL!)
Why I crack you up is because you make yourself sound like a little rebetzin (afraid of L”H etc.) but then you go on the internet e/ night…December 10, 2008 2:23 pm at 2:23 pm #627215notpashutMember
Definitly do come to E”Y, there’s nothing like it!
That last post wasn’t so intellIgent. 🙂
You can come to us for Shabbos.December 10, 2008 8:06 pm at 8:06 pm #627216
Intelligent-Theres nothing like eretz yisroel, and the fact that shes already mature will only make her appreciate it more. So maybe its more of a reason she should go. This is my 3rd yr and i still cant get enough. (oh but you cant come for shabbos).December 11, 2008 3:21 am at 3:21 am #627217
yashrus, youve been there since youre 17? (assuming youre 20, as your username implies)
–i wasnt gonna go that far, trust me
–intellegent: i feel very comfortable with staying home, but i think E’Y would be the better option.
notpashut, thanks for the offer! ill be sure to hold you up on it…
and intellegent, i have a sis in israel, so for now im not gathering invites lol
— btw the only thing i do on the internet is check my email, do work if i need the internet for it, and go on YWN can i still be a rebetzin?? lolDecember 11, 2008 12:31 pm at 12:31 pm #627219
Yes i just turned twenty, alot of bochrim come at 17. im young for my grade.
Well if joseph is on here probably lol. And id like to think i have a shot at becoming a magid shiur so i hope so.:)December 12, 2008 4:10 am at 4:10 am #627222
lol. but what does Joseph have to do with it? do you mean since he’s also on the internet but Piv Malei Torah? lolDecember 12, 2008 12:02 pm at 12:02 pm #627224
Ill let u be the judge, but yea thats what i meant. 🙂December 12, 2008 2:50 pm at 2:50 pm #627225SJSinNYCMember
