Well said, mdd (last comment) and TheBear. Yasher Koach.
How does he almost always seem to manage to get the first comment in on every story on (the main page of) YWN that he posts on?
I have heard that the organizers of “A Jewish Star” are planning next year a televised reality show that will be called “Jewish Survivor”, where contestents will have all sorts of “challanges” before they are voted off the island — until there is only one man or woman left standing.
I wouldn’t change a child in public. But if I made a mistake and did, and that animal said that to me, I’d take my time doing the diaper change sloooowlllly all the while not answering or otherwise acknowledging she even exists.
There are 120 members in the kenesset, so you need a majority of 61 to have a government. No single party ever had 61 on its own, so the biggest party (usually) forms a coalition with enough other parties to have at least 61 seats.
About 36 parties ran in the election, but only 12 parties got enough votes to get any seats.
Oh, I almost forgot to wish another good riddance.
Good riddance to MK Yohanan Plesner. As you may recall he was the Kadima MK that tried (and almost succeeded) to implement a forced draft of yeshivaleit with his “Plesner Plan” a few months ago.
He was #3 on Kadima’s list, but Kadima only got 2 seats. (And barely even that, as they just squeaked past the threshold of having any seats, going from the largest party to the smallest irrelevant party.)January 23, 2013 11:28 pm at 11:28 pm in reply to: English is Absent and Math Doesn't Count at Brooklyn's Biggest Yeshivas #924875
The Chasidim have survived the past 60+ years in America without a serious secular studies program. The Litvaks are catching up and they’ll manage fine, just like the Chasidim.
Curiosity killed the cat!
TLIK: Your anonymous allegations of a supposed admission are no more believable than the vengeful woman who accused him at trial.
In your case the animal is causing a nuisance, so killing it would be like killing a fly that is coming to your food.
The gullible who believe this lying evil woman, despite the fact there is not a shred of any actual evidence, raise specious arguments such as yichud — something that NEVER occured — by saying “there were three locks on the door”. Of course they, in their zeal to prosecute the innocent, even if they are in denial that the locks were broken they are blinded by the fact that three locks offer no more protection than one lock. If someone wanted to sin one lock offers all they need and two more locks don’t do anything more than one does. And, of course, they pretend even if there was yichud — which there was not — that yichud is somehow even one one hundredth as bad as what they accuse him of and what he was falsely convicted of in a secular kangaroo court. The punishment for yichud is malkus not death in prison.
Then they raise that “the therapist believes her”. Well, therapists are wrong at least as often as they are right. And their thoughts, certainly, are far from being any sort of proof. Something that is completely and totally and utterly lacking. Due to his complete and absolute innocence.
This miscarriage of justice of a completely innocent human being by a vengeful evil woman who was caught in the worst kind of crime by her own father is not atypical of the broken American justice system. Like Rubashkin, he had his religion and dress going against him. It would be comical if it weren’t so sad how the gullible believe there is evidence where none was offered.
In the U.S. the minority party in Congress has very little power. (Except the Senate filibuster; in the House they are powerless.)
ym613: Society, including women, was far better off before the shas hadchak that required the beis yaakov system. Women in combat is a terrible problem on so many levels, tznius being the foremost in addition to the points I earlier made about it.
Who does the $500 and the $1000 bill have on it?
tsharer: They’re still legal tender.
Dov Lipman, the so-called “frum” agitator from Beit Shemesh who has been making a ruckus against the Torah Jews, got in as an MK as (the anti-religious) Yesh Atid’s #17.
How many seats did they cause Shas to lose?
Does anyone know how many votes Mr. Amsallem and Rav Yitzchok got and how many seats they caused Shas to lose?
I thought my comment addressed your point, but you now indicate otherwise. What was your point?
zsd: On that token, Yesh Atid cannot be in a coalition with Bayit Yehudi, as they have opposite demands on the peace process with the Arabs.
So if Shas + Yesh doesn’t either work, Bibi has no viable coalition.
UTJ never had 8 since ’48. That was an unrealistic hope.
OOM: Clarify you original point, please.
613: What disappoints you?
OOM: Why is MDG’s original comment hard for you to accept? In the thousands of years of the history of war and mankind, armies have won and lost their greatest battles without women. Women are not suited for combat. Bringing women into an army does not strengthen an army.
Why else, do you propose, has tzahal always been on the forefront of contemporary armies in placing women in combat?
How about a complete shocker/earthquake coalition where Shas teams up with Lapid and Labor, putting Netanyahu into a retirement home!!
The Chareidim cannot have a hesder-like arrangement since that would mean the Chareidim would have less time in the Yeshiva learning Torah.
How does picking up a hand to hit someone relate to them?
DY: That makes one a halachic rasha?
For girls dating is FREE. It’s the guys paying for it.
So why not get a FREE meal out at a nice restaurant.
Nothing to lose except a couple hours of enjoyment.
As I said, meeting them doesn’t make one. Chillul Shabbos is another story, but it doesn’t sound like they did that from what you said. (Certainly not most). DY?
zsdad: No. Meeting a rasha doesn’t make one a rasha.
DaasYochid: What did those guys calling themselves NK today (who actually have no right to the name) do that you refer to them as reshoim? I agree with your wacko description, but the other term requires specific defined activities.
The Chofetz Chaim, among many others, said the lack of tznius causes many tragedies.
Why not just make it payable to the rabbi’s name and include a note that it’s for his talmid Ari.
benig: You are a fool if you expect yidden to not listen to the many gedolim who say they should not serve in the army because there are some other rabbis who say they should serve.
talmud: Mesechtes Avos has a Gemora, but it was lost.January 22, 2013 4:21 am at 4:21 am in reply to: Racism and Chinuch: What do we teach our children about diversity? #929168
MLK was an anti-semite and a drunk.
Chazal give good advice. (On this matter, as all matters.)
Mazal Tov Yossi!January 21, 2013 11:07 pm at 11:07 pm in reply to: Racism and Chinuch: What do we teach our children about diversity? #929152
It is absolutely true that yidden are superior. No question about it. We are the am hanivchar. We are the chosen nation.
613: What issues within UTJ? The Netzach faction reintegrated into UTJ and they will be voting UTJ as well. Only Shas has split-offs from Rav Yitzchok and Mr. Amsallem. (Both who will take votes from Shas and waste them as neither will get any seats.)
UTJ currently has 5 and the polls say they’ll get 6. So it is rather highly unlikely they’ll go down to 4.
Compromise on a black sock for his right foot and a gray sock for his left foot.
chana: Wrong thread, as he did no such thing.
He never admitted to the things the blogs falsely claim he admitted.
What gave you the idea that the land was the governments in the first place? It wasn’t. Depsite their declaring it theirs.
UTJ go down? They currently have 5 and the polls say they’ll get 6.January 21, 2013 4:15 pm at 4:15 pm in reply to: what chassidic movements don't require you to grow a beard? #921387
The Chofetz Chaim and Rav Eliashev say the requirement is halachic, and neither of them are Chasidic. I doubt any Chasidus doesn’t require it.
He is innocent.
A hat is a sign of respect in a shul (or out.)
