My blood boils when I read your shameless lies (ignorance?) and outrageous accusations.
Trump has condemned white supremacism more than any other President in American history.
This past August he became the first President to declare the KKK a domestic terror organization.
At that same speech he released the following statement: “Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans. I will also prosecute the KKK and Antifa as terrorist organizations and make lynching a national hate crime.”
How is that for a new dose of (true!) information?
Please don’t misquote the Tzemach Tzedek. According to him, a person is oiver 5 aveiros for every time he shaves. He is the most stringent authority in regards to this matter, and he was attacked by many poskim for his opinion.
When R’ Efraim Mol was told during the Yom Kippur war that there would be a gas attack, and he would have to shave his beard, the Rebbe told him that there would be no gas attack, and that at if the supervisors pressed him, he should tell them that the indian Sikhs wore their masks even without a beard. In the end, there was no gas attack and everything worked out fine.
Considering that Chabad.org is the safest, oldest, most famous, most popular Jewish website, I’m sure YW will have no problem with me posting the following link, although the official policy is that links are not accepted. Thanks
The title of this thread is accurate besides for the question mark at the end.
This thread is outdated. Trump recovered thanks to our tehillim, despite the fact that democrat news said he was in critical condition.
It was me that made the comment about R’ Kaminetzky, not DovitBT.
Conversely, It was Charliehall that made the comment about assimilated Jews, not you.
It is quite interesting how one Democrat steps in for another to say what he means. Why don’t you let him speak for himself?
Could you clarify what you meant by “we don’t go for bad after rov”?
Could you explain to me how 85% of Orthodox Jews are “assimilated” and “turned their back on the Torah” according to Ami Magazine’s new poll that was posted on YW?October 14, 2020 8:52 pm at 8:52 pm in reply to: Ex-White House physician Ronny Jackson ‘convinced’ Biden not fit for office #1910124
Hey, I tried opening a topic just like this and it was denied!
Common, you said that already. By the way his name is Kornbluh without a ‘t’.
Also, @Yechi refers to a CR participant from 8 years ago whose activity on YW consists of 1 comment. I have no connection with him.
Had it not been for that useless account, I could’ve simplified my username instead of having one that barely fits my computer screen.
DovidBT: “Only self hating Jews…. That would be a statement if you replace “trump” with “biden”
Haha. The statement would be even truer if you also added the words “morality” “humanity” “normalcy” “intelligence” after the word “Torah”
It’s also also entertaining to see Charliehall refer to R’ Shmuel Kamenetzky as a “self-hating assimilated Jew” and get away with it without the mods reprimanding him! I remember getting slammed by the mods for writing a comment on the Rebbe’s Shita regarding a certain topic that differed with that of another Gadol.
Perhaps the times have changed and the mods are slacking off or else they’ve been replaced….
Do you really think that I would care to perfectly imitate a racist comment?
I remember when we were in camp, the staff made the Nazi uniforms for the plays with the SS symbol backwards in order to make a “Shinui”. The kids, obviously, didn’t know the difference.
I wrote the basic gist of what he said and I don’t believe they were taken out of context. In fact, there really was no context because those quotes are pretty much taken from responses he gave to reporters questions’. The only one that was part of a speech was the infamous “poor kids” one which cannot be justified no matter what the context is. Frankly, none of biden’s speeches have contexts either, because they mostly consist of garbled flubs and a mixture of comments that don’t seem to have a common thread.
Regarding Byrd, that man was a racist — no question. in the 50s he apologized for his comments right before running for congress. No kidding….
Politifact, which is largely considered a reliable fact checker, stated that for Biden to refer to him as a “friend” is inappropriate and contrasted it with Trump’s association with Rosa Parks.
Regardless, Biden has shown himself to be contemptuous and arrogant when referring to minorities such as Indians and Blacks. Even the Democrats are ashamed of it.
“he wasn’t arrested because he wasn’t there yet”
You do not have to be present at the scene of the crime, in order to be arrested for incitement. Heshy also wasn’t present when mr. kornbluh was allegedly kicked and punched.
When al sharpton incited a mob to murder R’ Yankel Rosenbaum and beat yidden, he was not arrested. Witnesses were present when he yelled “kill Jews!”. Lo and behold al sharpton is currently good friends with Joe Biden and has met with him on several occasions. No surprise over there….
It is ironic that right after me posting about dems lying about the severity of the virus, you go on to do exactly that! No one is dying right now-at least not that I’ve realized.
As far as Crown Heights, I can tell you right now as a crownheightser that there are no empty seats in shuls. 770 is packed to capacity as always – you can head over yourself and check it out. Everyone is welcome to join, of course. Just don’t impose on us any of your liberal ideas, or else we’ll pelt you with esrogim!
“Listening to republicans gives them power as well”
Exactly. And we need their power. We don’t need dems exaggerating the virus in order to promote their own anti-Trump agenda. They are getting America unnecessarily hyped about an issue that is not as bad as they make it to be.
I couldn’t get yidden on mivtzoim to shake Lulav and Esrog even though I was wearing a mask and gloves! Because of lying dems, these yidden could not do a mitzvah! The world is going crazy about a virus that has no control outside according to all scientists.
The one who made a big deal about Trump taking off the mask was Chris Cuomo from CNN. Ironically, Chris was seen smoking a pipe in a restaurant shortly after having tested positive for Corona. When a passerby on the street asked him why he is not wearing a mask, he laughed him off and said that he didn’t know what he is talking about. It’s typical democrat hypocrisy
He obviously doesn’t hold of Rabbi Kamenetsky. After all, he’s the “Gadolhadorah”…..
Hadassah35: “He speaks…. He speaks…. He speaks….. He speaks….. We don’t like the way he speaks”
You see, this is the defining factor between Republicans and Democrats vis- a- vis their view of the President: Democrats focus on Trump’s speech, on his outward image, and the way he projects himself, the way he expresses himself. Republicans, by contrast, focus on Trumps ACTIONS, on Trumps actual DEEDS. They focus on all the amazing accomplishments he has done in the past four years. On all the Jobs he created, on all the efforts he has made to advance peace in the Middle East, and much more.
Nobody thinks Trump is a Mentch. Not even his closest aides. Nobody thinks he is perfect. But he has done for the American people (and also for the Jewish people – see my previous comment) than any president in the past has done. Trump doesn’t need our Hakaros Hatov; I don’t think he even wants it. He has been serving faithfully as our President in spite of all the false accusations and misrepresentation displayed about him on the media. He clearly isn’t the type of guy to be swayed by lack of Hakaros Hatov.
G-d willing, Mr. Trump will be reelected as our president and continue servicing the country and the Jewish people for another four years. The stakes are high so go out and vote!
Careful about the way you talk about the person who:
Was the first president to recognize Ir Hakodesh as Eretz Yisroel’s capital;
Was the first president to take major steps in advancing peace in the Middle East;
Defeated ISIS, thus saving tens of thousands of Jewish lives;
Recognized the Golan Heights as part of Eretz Yisroel, thus legitimizing the words of our Torah;
Doing a favor for all of Klal Yisroel by freeing the wrongfully imprisoned Sholom Rubashkin;
And much, much more…..
Do you have any way of proving that Trump’s efforts of behalf of the Jewish people is for his own benefit? I didn’t think so…..
“Israel did not give anyone anything in 1969.”
Look up on Wikipedia “the Cairo-Jericho accords.”
Israel handed it to them knowing full well that it would be converted into a terrorist hub. And if they didn’t know it then, they’d better know it now. History tend to repeat itself!
“Reason being to a Lubavitcher everyone that was around (or even more so someone that still is around) isn’t on the same level (and for sure not greater) than the rebbe.”
What are you talking about?! Sure, we believe that there were people as great as the Rebbe.
The Alter Rebbe the Mitteler Rebbe, the Tzemach Tzedek, the Rebbe Maharash, The Rebbe Rashab, the Frierdiker Rebbe…..
In order to provide a more coherent reading of your post, please include the following requisites:
1. Make sure to specify who your message is directed at.
2. Double check spelling mistakes that may confuse the reader.
3. create a comprehensive flow, instead of just mixing different ideas together in a heated jumble.
4. You should probably introduce your general opinion on the matter before you start detailing your arguments. Sometimes it’s hard to tell which side of the argument someone’s posts are supporting.
Please note that my opinion on this subject is not a political one (ie. whether it will support Israel’s economy; whether it will make Trump look bad etc.), but rather what I believe to be more in line with the the concept “Shleimus Haaretz” (Vayikra 25: 23).
The Torah prohibits giving away lands to other nations. This concept, and how it relates to today’s politics, is explained at great length in the Rebbe’s Sichos.
“Hamas’ base in Gaza which Israel handed over to them in 1969.” –
– ‘Say what?!’
If you have a problem with something I mentioned, that please specify what it is. What i said, I believe, is pretty simple. History has shown that the more land Israel hands over, the more greedy – and deadly – the Palestinians become. The fact that Yiddishe publications such as Ami Magazine and YW news are glorifying this “peace” consideration is highly troubling.
“Every person is entitled to an opinion. However, if one expects their opinion on this matter to be considered seriously, one must fulfill two conditions.
1. Live and work in the country that will have to deal with the ramifications of this opinion.”
Interesting, because President Trump fulfills neither of those preconditions…..
And the Rebbe only fulfilled one….
firstly , I should make the disclaimer that I am not a politician, nor do I have an adequate understanding of it to be able to give a proper take on it. Nevertheless, in the Rebbe’s teachings the concept of not giving away land to the Arabs and the negative outcome it will have on Israel’s citizens. This, obviously, prompted me to learn more about it and, eventually, it becomes abundantly clear that none of these so called “peace – land” have done any good for Israel for the past 45 years. On the contrary, it has only wrought destruction, chaos, tragedy, terror, and WAR.
“2. What so-called “terrible ramifications” have the Camp David accords entailed?”
The “terrible ramifications” that I refer to are all the terror attacks that Israel has suffered as a result of Hamas’ base in Gaza which Israel handed over to them in 1969. EVERY single death or injury in Israel from terror attacks organized by Gazan terrorists, is a direct result of the Camp David accords, which served as a precursor for all subsequent “peace” treatings.
I understand that Rav Shach and R’ Ovadia Yosef approved of such peace plans but, in retrospect, whose vision do you think seemed to reflect the future (which is now the bygone past) more? They were tremendous Talmidei Chachamim. I won’t discount that. however when it came to Israel’s well being, practically all ministers and department heads in Israel agreed that the Rebbe’s vision was the most logical and would, ultimately, prove truthful. Yitzchak Rabin told his aides when he exited yechidus, “that Rabbi understands Israel more than most politicians”. Menachem Begin remarked, after his visit with the Rebbe: “we respect him and we accept his judgement” (it’s actually on video). His understanding of economy, war strategy, defense, and political relations far surpassed that of those in the field (as “those in the field” have personally admitted).
We should all Davven that these peace settlements – which are set to go in to play from July 1st – should not fall through, noting the inevitable disaster it will cause.
Rational, I answered a while ago and you STILL didnt answer!
Funny! I just heard about Camp Morris for the first time an hour ago, and now I see it here!
Insane. I’ve seen plenty of hate-filled comments launched at my fellow Chassidim (which is why I made this acoount), but I don’t think I’ve ever seen such an open display of racial vitriol on YW’s site. In fact, I don’t think I’ve seen it anywhere.
George Floyd was no worse than your average black growing up in a slumland run by crime and violence. Already in his teens, he was arrested for drug trafficking, and in 2006 he was arrested for participating in an aggravated robbery, while in possession of a weapon (It is not clear whether George withdrew the weapon and threatened anyone).
Since then, George had more or less come clean although he still struggled with a drug addiction. He was an aspiring rapper as well as a professional basketball and football player. Once he moved to Minneapolis, he worked two jobs, one as a truck driver, and another as a security guard at a night club. He was described by those who knew him – former classmates as well as the director of the night club where her worked – as a “gentle giant” with a warm personality; a troubled man who was trying to turn his life around.
We should all be horrified and distressed by this outrageous, maddening, story. To feel otherwise is nothing short of psychopathic.
Interjection : “I don’t know a single person who isn’t horrified by what happened to Floyd.”
Well, now that you’ve visited this thread, you probably can’t say that anymore.
• He was in handcuffs at the time of the murder.
• He already had 2 officer sitting on him
• There were multiple bystanders telling the officers that he was unresponsive.
• Floyd said multiple times “Help I Can’t Breathe”
All these factors combined make the story all the more frightening. Please note that Chauvin was the subject of 18 complaints prior to this story.
I think the man who dismissed all those complaints should also be fired.
Lower: “How did the video of George Floyd’s death not bother you? how do you know it doesnt bother me?”
Well, now that you’ve seen Health’s and Joseph’s comment, You have probably realized that there are a considerable number of yidden who DONT feel bad.
“Floyd was high on fentanyl and possibly also meth, which he had recently used.”
According to what I read, he was drunk on liquor.
“If you haven’t found it you haven’t looked. He did five years for armed robbery,”
I just researched , and I realized that you’re correct; he was indeed arrested 12 years ago for armed robbery. That in no way detracts from the severity of the story. The owner of a night club he used to work for, said that he was a domesticated, smiling, fellow and the cop (Chauvin) who worked as a security guard there was known as a vicious monster who used to randomly peppers pray people. He was also the subject of 18
complaints made against him from when he worked as an officer.
“You have no idea at all what you’re talking about”.
Pepper spray and mace just never goes wrong. It’s fact. Unless the button breaks right before you press, or the guy manages to snatch it from your hand, then there isn’t much that could go wrong. Mace has served the police tremendously well for years.
“the threat of serious bodily harm is enough to justify deadly force.”
Could you say that one more time? Anyone who doesn’t go near them is in no danger whatsoever. They’re not looking to hurt people, but once the police come up close, they attack. Police can stay from a nice distance and blast them away with tear gas.
Anyone who isn’t disturbed by this story, either A. Didn’t watch the video, or B. Is a diagnosed psychopath.
•Floyd was not high. He was drunk, so read the article.
•I cannot find a source on the internet that he was involved in armed robbery; I don’t see how that bears any relevance on the subject at hand, either way.
•There is no such as thing as mace or taser not working. It ALWAYS work on ANYONE.
• “DF- the RIOTERS should be shot because they are a physical threat to the lives of the store owners, policemen”
If Jersey had written “Rioters that pose a threat to the lives of store owners and policemen” than that would be a whole different story. The term rioter could refer to someone who is burning a car, smashing a window etc. Such a person could hardly be called a threat. If you want to keep them away, then use tear gas – dont just plow through a whole crowd of them (like the video YW posted) .A shot is likely to end in death.
“DC, Floyed was NOT strangled.”
No, he wasn’t strangled; he just had a knee pressed against his neck for 8 minutes until he was pronounced dead moments later….. Really now, Milhouse?! Didn’t I just say something about not posting insensitive comments?!
Floyd was in HANDCUFFS, and had 2 someone sitting on his legs. The guy was powerless!
As Jews, we believe that every human was created in Hashem’s image, and each one could fulfill Hashem’s Ratzon by leading a life of peace, based on the 7 mitzvos bnei noach…. A comment such as JeseyJew’s should be taken down by YW staff (actually, it shouldn’t have been sanctioned in the first place), especially because the user identifies himself as a “Jew”. which makes the chilul hashem much worse, if someone were to visit the sight, and chance upon this comment.
JerseyJew: The RIOTERS should be shot.”
End of story.”
If you believe rioters should be shot, do you also believe that a counterfeiter should be strangled to death, while in handcuffs screaming “Help! I can’t breath!”. Please think before you post insensitively.
No one deserves to die.
I have deleted at least 3 (maybe 4?) posts of yours accusing people of hateful behavior toward chabad that is not being displayed. Move on.
“Being blunt or sharp, is not an indicator of hate. Lack of patience, maybe. An attempt to highlight the point, likely.”
I didn’t actually mean haeteful per se. the students of Rebbi Akiva also weren’t hateful towards each other. It was their very own teacher that made the famous statement “Love Your Fellow As Yourself”. It is unfathomable that they went against their teachers explicite command!
It is not right that now, of all the times, the posts are getting more and more heated.
And blunt or sharp comments can many times be an manifestaion of hate.
Why are Coffee Room’s discussions the most hateful during Sefiras Haomer? Does the Satan kick in especially now?
“DC, I’ll write to you, bli neder, in a few weeks or whenever you say. I will be writing that you once again have proven yourself to be a fool.”
Following is a transcript of an interview between ChabadInfo and d. Zev Zelenko.
How do you see this situation from the perspective of a Lubavitcher Chossid?
“It is clear to me that Moshiach is arriving imminently for two reasons:
1) If I would’ve told you a few months ago that right before Moshiach comes, we will all be taken out of our regular lives and put in a completely different situation which is totally out of our comfort zones, it would be hard to believe me. Now, if I tell you that, you will believe me.
2) Very simply, the Gematria of Corona in Lashon Hakodesh is Moshiach Bo” —
Perhaps Dr. Zelenko is also a fool?
To show everyone how dumb they are
No, it was for milhouse.
Correction: the mezritcher maggid wasn’t sure if Moshiach wold come from his *youngest (Alter Rebbe) or oldest (R’Nochum Chernobyl)
“No less a person than the Alter Rebbe said that Moshiach will have to be a misnaged, because if he’s a chossid the misnagdim won’t accept him,”
To shed light on that particular dialogue, I would refer you to the Stump the Rabbi program entitled “How Can We Say That The Rebbe Is Moshiach If The Alter Rebbe Said Moshiach Is A Veltisher?” where rabbi Noam Wagner gives a very reasonable interpretation of that exchange. It is important to note that many of the Rebbeim’s cryptic exchanges were subsequently explained by later Rebbeim. We cannot understand the co-conversations of holy tzaddikim like Chazal say “The mundane talk of the sages contain the deepest secrets” (Sukkah 20b)
There is also a famous story of how the mezritcher maggid once said that Moshiach will come from one of his talmidim but he’s not sure if he will come from his oldest (Alter Rebbe) or his oldest (R’ Nochum of Chernobyl), so the Alter Rebbe made A shidduch beteween his grandson and R’Nochum’s so that Moshiach can come from both of them. Later, when someone else wanted marry this grandson, R’Mottel, who had succeeded his father since then, disagreed and said that the child was already reserved for “The Litvak” as the Alter Rebbe was called at the time.
We can’t understand the Alter Rebbe’s discussions; we could only guess. And these guesses could be quite varying – and conflicting – sometimes.
Google “Moshiach” and this forum is one of the first things that come up. YW coffee room is a nice way to get your message out. Good Shabbos.
” After his passing the probability of his being Moshiach is obviously lower”
Why, may I ask? Perhaps you are not aware of the Gemara in Sanhedrin 98b or Yerushalmi Brachos halachah 5
Or the sefer Yeshuos Meshicho, where the Abarbanel paskens that moshiach is just as likely to come from the dead as if he is to come from the living. Perhaps I should also remind you that, in the sefer Kerem Yisroel, it is written by R’ Yisroel of Ruzhin’s son that we should continue to believe his father to be Moshiach even after his passing.
Perhaps I should also refer you Sdei Chemed maareches 1, os 70
“It will be more vindicated when the Rebbe returns to “lead us to meet Moshiach”, as he often put it.”
Are you kidding me?! The Rebbe referred to his father-in-law as “The Rebbe King Moshiach”
The Rebbe himself expressly stated that the Chabad Rebbe of his respective generation is the Nosi Hador, and the Nosi Hador is the Moshiach Shebdor. The Rebbe also announced during a Farbrengen “Every Chossid believes with Emuna Shelaima that his Rebbe is Moshiach”. The link to that sicha can be found below.
Earlier, someone posted a link to hebrew books so i’m sure YW will allow me to do the same
At the end of se’if 10
“do the words of Moirainu reb shach zatzal not mean anything?”
While I certainly believe that the words of Rav Shach mean something in certain respects, I also believe that the words of the Lubavitcher Rebbe mean something. Additionally, I believe that the words of the Satmar Rebbe, Bobover Rebbe, Belzer Rebbe, Skverer Rebbe, Rav Moshe Feintein Rav Ovadiah Yosef, Rav Mordechai Eliyahu, and Rav Shteinmann, who all greatly respected the Rebbe and his opinions, also mean something.
N0mesorah, ” Rav Shach said Tehillim for the Rebbe when he suffered the stroke.”
What?! where did you hear that?!
I didn’t know that the term “Yeshiva World” denotes exclusion to Chabad Lubavitch – or any Jewish sector for that matter.
Either way, I would expect that, being an accepted CR participant for waaaay longer than you, I would deserve a certain modicum of respect – if not minuscule at the very least.
This thread wasn’t supposed to be about Gemtrias! can we please stay focused everyone?
My source is from what other people were sending around, as many CR participants have noted. How did you manage to miss that?
In the words of a wise man (with a slight variation) “people who think mishegassen don’t see what they don’t want to see”
I don’t see why you decided to make such a big deal out of one stupid detail I mentioned half-jokingly. It was viral on many whatsapps and it was quite a famous thing. I will see if I can send you more Gematrias when I find out about them, as you requested earlier. By the way, what made me earn the title “Dear Chabadnik”?
And for your information Moshiach Ben David is Gematria “Donald Trump”. I forgot how the exact spelling goes but I’ll leave that up to you – you did a nice job last time, although you somehow managed to miss the right one. And it’s probably the most obvious spelling…..
Kisvei Ariza”l Shaar Hagilgulim writes that Moshiach wll be revealed howeverthe world won’t recognize him as Moshiach. Afterwards, his body and soul will go into the Amud Haanan and, after a while it will come back down to the world and everyone will accept him as Moshaich. There are vvarying opinions as to how long Moshiach will be hidden. Rashi says that the Possuk “Happy is the one who waits a hundred something years” refers to this time period. I mentioned a different opinion in my other post.
It’s okay to be confused. Midrash in Bamidbar Rabba Naso 12:12 says that after Moshiach will be revealed, he will be hidden from the Yidden, and subsequently revealed, and then the whole world will accept him as Moshiach. This idea is also found in the Medrash on Shir hashirim. It can also be found in Rashi to Daniel 12:12.
Interestingly R’ Eliezer mentioned Rabeinu Bechaye and Toras Moshe. Both of these seforim at the end of Parshas Shemos, mention this Idea. In the Siddur of the Yaavetz , it says that Moshiach will be hidden 49 years.
