If it wasn’t so sad, it would be absurdly ironic that the chairman of the Knesset’s “Religious” Services Committee, Yisrael Beiteinu MK Yulia Malinovsky, engages in constant attacks on religion. Now that she successfully passed the kashrus reforms in the committee, while constantly making derisive comments about kashrus and the Rabbanut, she posted a video on Tiktok outlining her plans for the future.

The video showcases what aspects of religion Malinovsky plans on attacking next, with the video showing that she will work to institute civil marriage in Israel, implement reforms in conversion and legalize public transportation on Shabbos. The video ends with a reassuring promise from Malinovsky: “And this is only the beginning.” In other words, she won’t be satisfed until all vestiges of Jewish identity are eliminated from the Jewish state, making it a “country for all citizens.”

Religious Zionism party chairman Betzalel Smotrich stated in response to the video: “There’s a direct connection between Malinovsky’s Tiktok videos and the speech of [Arab MK] Osama Saadi [who called the Balfour Declaration declaring the state of Israel “cursed.”] Either we’ll be a Jewish state or we won’t be, chalilah.”

  1. This old often-heard Hebrew phrase comes to mind:
    “הרבי מ’סאטמאר צודק”
    (Translation: “The Satmar Rebbe was/is right”.)

  2. Right on! If there was no medina thered be no issue with irreligious jews doing these things. In fact everywhere else (us, europe) we do nothing to stop it. So whats the difference?

  3. She happens to be right that the Zionist State is not a Jewish State, never was and never will be. (The Satmar Rav said much more and, of course, was so right about all of it, but the above is plain and obvious.)

    It would be a tremendous service to Klal Yisrael if the Zionists would stop their Big Lie of claiming to represent Jews and if they would stop claiming that the Zionist State is the state of the Jews. It’s all lies (and shmad), and that is obvious to anyone who knows the first thing about Zionism.

  4. The Gedolei Olam of the previous generation agreed to be part of the government. Retain the status quo. Yes. Little by little make inroads and exert influence. There is no reason now to abandon our Daas Torah.For many years it was the same 4 seats. Now it is בלעה a bloc. The גדולי תורה צודקים.

  5. You do realize that the big winner in all this is the Badatz, which is the “shadow government” of the hareidim with pre-zionist roots. If the medinah makes it so an Orthodox Jews can not also be a zionist, then suddenly the non-zionist religious establishment will gain considerable influence. The last time that happened was in the early 1920s, and the zionists were forced to use assassination (of Jacob Israel de Haan) to coerce the hareidim not to challenge them for control of the yishuv.
