    Interesting that there are actually Jews who are jumping to take the word of an Iranian official over that of an American. Besides the fact that in September 2018 Israel itself announced that it had attacked Iranian assets in Syria 200 times, no secret here.

    trump vaccine because he said he wanted it? He had nothing to do with its creation, skilled experienced scientists did. Operation warped slow motion, only two million vaccinated, when they said twenty million would be done by the end of the year. More incompetent bungling.

    to me there is something wrong with chewing gum anywhere

    “the gum chewing girl and the cud chewing cow

    are different yet similar some how.

    oh yes I know now,

    how about just a little saichel; why did the Iranians even come to the table, because they are big tzaddikim, ohavei shalom? No, they came because sanctions are hurting them, the answer is clear continue and strengthen sanctions, that’s the alternative, not war as the president & Kerry would have us believe

    I often hope that some of the comments I find are actually jokes and the purpose is to get a rise out of people.

    Here is a mitzvah, hachnosas Kallah, which is listed as ochail pairosahem b’olam hazeh v’hakeren kayemes l’olam haboh. A mitzvah of chesed based according to the Rambam on v’ahavta l’raacha kmocha THE Klal gadol baTorah. Who is Patur from that? Who would want to run away and avoid that?

    Does anyone think that hachnosas kallah is just for showing up to the chasunah?

    CharlieHall is correct, private gun ownership in Israel is illegal. You have to be in security etc to get a permit & you must renew it annually.

    this morning I heard a third party, namely another passenger on the plane, say on the news that there were a number of students disobeying repeated requests to be seated & turn off phones.

    some may not like it, but it’s the discretion of the airline to decide how to handle such a situation.

    when in doubt-BEHAVE LIKE A MENTSH!

    my Rav gave a very good moshol: would you go to war with guns but with no ammunition? Chazal say limud haTorah is maigen, so it is a weapon of defense against our enemies. it is normal that chilonim do not understand this concept, but I would assume those here should.

    DaasYochid: mechilas kevodcha, this, along with many other comments in the coffee room, is FULL of lashon hara. those who speak of the aveiros of another are opening themselves up to being scrutinized in shmayim, H’yerachaim!
