    cherrybin, this is exactly what the owner of the store said, and the eye witnesses said that the store owner came out with an unbelievable rage and started slapping and punching rihght and left, and he broke his finger while hiiting someone, and yes, some ppl whom he started with gave him back in self defense.

    Store owner does not have any witnesses to confirm his account, Weissfish had many witnesses.

    uneeq -“Health- About the rest of what you said, I have better things to do than waste my time responding again.

    Like pursuing my idea of printing the 5th chelek of shulchan aruch.”

    In others words -“I don’t know C.C. or any Halacha regarding Loshon Hora, so I can’t respond to you”!

    When you print your 5th Chelek is that going to include everything that you feel should have said in the other 4, instead of what is actually said? In other words -Are you going to tell us what is considered L.H. and whatever the Chofetz Chaim said is outdated & wrong?

    cherrybim – I used to know a Yekke who would sing CherryBim – up and down our block. For his sake I hope you aren’t related to him. He would turn over in his grave – if he is related to you!

    Health- Assuming, arguendo, that he wasn’t violent any of those vicious attacks, he is/was still a member of the sikrikim. The same group that definitely has reshaim involved (see youtube-Meah Shearim Terror Sikrikim Break Store Glass Door, and I’m sure there’s others). Being a member of their clan and violent demonstrations is directly colluding with reshaim, helping the evil continue their crimes against humanity and desecration of Hashem’s name. Oy lerasha, oy leshcheno. We need less of these type of people on the streets. So yes, good riddance.

    There’s 2 parts of what happens when this guy goes to jail

    1) He stops partaking in protests and cannot cause or help problems

    2) He gets punished

    I would be happy if all of the sikrikim end up being in category 1. However, anybody who is violent should simply be in category 2. In a free country, everyone has the right to parade including gays, leftists, “settlers”, sikrikim, any many other groups. Do I want them thrown in jail for parading? Certainly not. But I would definitely enjoy it if they would take their shenanigans somewhere else. NIMBY, please.

    You have a lot more Sinas Chinum than these Sikrikim!!!!!

    Again, if they are violent, throw them in jail. If one particular guy isn’t, I would still be happy that he’s not around to join them. Am I happy that he’s in jail? Well, if there’s no evidence against him, then not particularly. But I will definitely not join with thugs to free him. There are better things to be sympathetic about. Like the sinas chinam you mentioned and victims of violence.

    tldr; I’m happy he’s off the streets, not necessarily happy that he’s in prison

    As you can tell, I am only assuming for arguments sake (since I don’t have evidence on hand to prove to others) that he isn’t a criminal. Again, good riddance can mean that I am happy that he’s away and the problem is partially solved. Not necessarily that I’m happy that he’s in prison.

    Very good -this is called being Dan L’caf Zecus.

    “Again, good riddance can mean that I am happy that he’s away and the problem is partially solved. Not necessarily that I’m happy that he’s in prison.”

    It could mean that, but noone has to assume that. A person is Not allowed to do Maras Ayin. If an article comes out saying s/o was put in jail and then s/o says “Good Riddance”, it is upto the poster or article writer to explain their words. So YWN should issue an explanation on their headline!

    So, is it being argued that this fellow was arrested, found guilty and now jailed on the basis of nothing more than politics or trumped up charges? No evidence, a sham trial and simple bigotry?

    If someone has been convicted of violent crimes and the matter is generally known it would seem that he is muchzak barabbim as a rasha. The store owner’s problems with this mafia are also well known.

    That being the case, it would have been bettr to write something along the lines of “crime does not pay” or “be warned” and some hope that he does teshuva. Just as Hashem does not desire to punish a rasha and takes no pleasure when He must do so neither should we.

    What you don’t understand is that it is irrevelant whether he is guilty or not. Acc. to the Torah (if you believe in it) only a Bais Din has jurisdiction to judge this guy up!

    Health, he was judged according mishpat hamelech. See also Sefer Chafetz Chaim 8:5 that for lashon hara it is sufficient if everyone knows that he is a rasha because of the constant bad stories about him whose veracity they do not doubt. See also Choshen Mishpat 34:1 that even if only one person knows that the person is guilty it is assur for him to testify in bet din along with him because of “al teshet yadcha im rasha” (Sma).

    Hello, you’re right. I meant 8:7. Regarding the Be’er Mayim Chaim, in section 14 he states that “everyone” knows that the action is prohibited. Are there people who do not know that it is prohibited to assault and terrorize fellow Jews? In subsection 15 he says that one does not have to intend some benefit such as causing people to distance themselves from him or causing him to do teshuva when he sees people’s reaction to his malefactions. It is sufficient not to enjoy condemning him due to personal hatred, to not exaggerate and not to condemn him priavtely unless he fears him or does not want to create a machloket. He must intend leshem Shemayim to cause others to hate him so as not to learn from his actions. I cannot speak for the writer of the piece but I imagine that he does not even know the individual.

    Hello, see Rambam Hilchot Melachim at the end of Chapter 3, Ran Derasha 11, Rema Choshen Mishpat 3, Avneui Nezer YD 312:46-52 and Mishpat Cohen (Rav Kook) 147 regarding the powers of the secular authorities. See also He’emek Devar Devarim 17:14 that the Am has the option of a representative democracy to carry out these powers (Abarbanel, if I remember correctly in his introduction to Parashat Shoftim, even states that it is far preferable to monarchy and also states that the people choose the judges of the batei din of three and twenty-three as they have the right to decide who will judge them. Israeli judges are chosen by a committee which includes the people’s representatives).

    Avi: 14 is questionable. The perp feels that he is correct in terrorizing a “sinner” to dissuade him from his “evil ways”. He clearly feels he is a meritorious Kanoy and not evil. While deeply misguided, he does not meet the criteria of 14.

    You misread 15. The Chofetz Chaim writes that he MUST intend a To’eles, which is questionable here. I think you confused ?? with ???.

    Hello, you’re right about ??. However, convincing others not to supppoert these groups is definitely a toelet.As for his beliefs, all criminals think that they are doing the right thing according to there codes of behavior. Would you delete all of the references to, for example, Abe “Kid Twist” Reles’ career because of a takkanant kadmonim and the fact that he thought that he was ridding the world of “dirty rats”? He, in fact, told the Brooklyn DA that he always knew that Hashem exists and according to one story I read never carried out a “contract” on Shabbat and being that he was a Cohen never in an enclosed area. The criteria is that the actions are well-known to be prohibited. He is thus presumed to know just that either he does not care for one reason or another.

    Avi K – Mr. Manipulater. This guy wasn’t proven (in Bais Din) to have committed any crimes. The fact that he was convicted in a Non-Bais Din does Not constitute a Kol. First go learn the Dinim and then come post. And being part of some group that some members do things wrong -doesn’t make him a guilty man. I’m not saying it’s a good idea to join the Sikrikim, but putting a guy in jail because he was found guilty in an Israeli courtroom is an Injustice acc. to the Torah, no matter how much you try and twist it!

    Health.

    Seriously.

    Are there less than a dozen threads where you are not relentlessly taking more than one person to task over and over again?

    I would normally not be so bold to confront, but since you are accustomed to “in your face” posting, I would like to make a suggestion that if someone holds a different view than you, it does not mean the person means anything personal, or that they didnt understand what you said, which sometimes is not as clear or accurately representative of what you are trying to say, believe it or not.

    I know you are not shooting for the idea that if someone does not share a specific view of yours, that it must mean they just didnt get what you are talking about.

    That would be a component of fascism.

    Do you get the impression that there are a significnat number of sane people out there who need convincing of this. I am very, very skeptical that this is the author’s motive.

    “The criteria is that the actions are well-known to be prohibited”

    Now you put yourself in a catch-22. If attacking people whose level of tnius is slightly sub-par is “well-known to be assur”, there is no to’eles in printing it. If it is not well-known, then the perp is potentially shogeg and we may not talk about him.

    The bottom line is that much of what is reported in (even frum) newspapers and news sites is an Issur of Lashon HaRa

    You sound like an intelligent person, and you have the gift of the written word. However, belittling people comes from ga’avah, which reflects insecurity. You don’t need to resort to name calling for conveying your message.

    “I’m the one with the Torah True Jewish values!”

    Really Health?

    Your interpretation of the values set forth in the Torah include insulting anyone who doesn’t share your particular outlook on things all the way up to the point of claiming that Jews of other levels of observance are not worthy of being treated with respect. You consistently post mocking others, talking down to them, and implying that they are less Jewish than you.

    I do not know you in person so I will not say anything about you, however I will state that your writings on this forum are about as far from “Torah True” as anything I have ever seen.

    Calling what you post “Torah True” is a horrible insult to the Torah itself and those who follow in its ways. Your writings would be enough to make the Gedolim of our past cry and ask themselves how their teachings got so distorted to create such animosity.

    The fact that you don’t care what I (and others) think of your attitude, is part of the same arrogance you manifest in your debates. Divrei Chachamim Benachat Nishmaim, you can defend De’os Kozvos (bogus teachings) without attacking/name-calling people.

    I haven’t defended “terrorists”! As a matter of fact, I don’t care too much about this Sikrikim group and I don’t condone their actions. But I believe in democracy & justice and e/o is innocent until Proven guilty, even groups you don’t like. He was Not Proven guilty in the Israeli court! They found him guilty because of the store owner’s word. Not only was it one word against the other, the accused had many witnesses for his side.

    So this is a Miscarriage of Justice. It’s a bloody shame that people who supposedly live by the Torah or even those that don’t but supposedly live by democracy, defend this outrageous behavior from the dictatorship that we have in Israel!

    Just for information purposes, there’s no “group” called sikrikim, there are many groups and sectors, Gur, Belz, Satmar Toldos, Viznitz etc, there are groups like neturei Karta, establisments like rabanut, Edah charedit, Agudah, voting parties and fractions, there is no group called “sikrikim”, it’s a slur the secular media, or collaborators would throw on any frum person/people they dislike.

    Hello, I agree that one cannot convict someone in the media. On the other hand, a public trial is considered a protection against railroading. This right was put into the US constitution because of memories of the English “Star Chamber” where political prisoners were convicted in secret trials. This is the fault of those reporters who take sides, mainly to sell their wares but also because of a group identification about which muchpsychologic material has been written.
