  1. The irony is that the biggest discriminators against the Sefardim are the Tziyonim! How many sefardim are there on the high court?! Ben Gurion said he hates the Arabs because they remind him of the Sefardim!
    Acheinu bnei Sfarad, dont be neive, join us in the fight against the high court that has one agenda, to undermine Torah!

  2. I’m not a big fan of the courts getting involved in schooling matters but I find it very offensive that these parents exploit their children as “props” for the media to highlight their political agenda. Photos and videos of mothers being dragged away from their screaming children are simply wrong and a chilul hashem.

  3. ” . . . children as ‘props’ for the media to highlight their political agenda . . . “. Political agenda? Do you call following the directive of Gedolei Yisroel a political agenda? Do you think this was easy for any of those parents? The previous, most recent churban required kiddush shem Shomayim with our bodies. Now we are being asked/tested by HKB”H to be m’kadesh shem Shomayim with our souls. Political agenda? I think not.

  4. This is all part of the ultimate test of the “end of time” of Tzadik b’emunaso yichyeh” (see Makos 24a). Emunah b’HaShem ub’Toraso, v’chachomav will bring the final ge’ulah b’ezras HaShem.

  5. #2-Obviously Justice Levy took advantage of a situation and went to town with it. Of course the jailing of parents is a travesty. But this Levy knows very well that in general ourside of Emmanuel there is severe discrimination against Sephardim in the ultra-orthodox enclaves. So he has a gas pedal to step on and he is stepping hard. Being that the Gedolim are protesting, obviously the government is wrong. But it behooves all Ashkenazim in E”Y to stop any non-halachic discrimination against Sepharedim. Each case of discrimination should be authorized by the Gedolim and should not be taken for granted. This way the government wouldn’t have an excuse to pull off this type of thing with impunity. Levy knows the Ashkenaz – Sephardic discrimination issue is an issue he can roll with. Why do we continue feeding our enemies? So yes, the Sepharedim join in against the courts,under one condition: aside from Emmanuel- no more discrimination against Sepharedim period. Can you handle it?
