2 far-right teens arrested in protest outside Lod court
Police arrest two teenage far-right activists for disturbing the peace during a demonstration outside the Lod District Court.

The boys were among dozens protesting the court’s refusal to scrap a police order barring three Jewish suspects in a major, gagged security probe from meeting with their attorneys.

Police have closed the main road outside the courthouse as officers work to disperse the demonstration.

My comments...why did the police need to disperse a legitimate demonstration?

Honenu Update on fate of three minors arrested by the Shabak :GSS detained Minors Still Under Order Not To Meet with Attorneys
On the afternoon of Tuesday, January 1, the GSS extended until Friday, January 4, the order preventing the three minors detained on Sunday, December 30 from meeting with an attorney. The minors have been interrogated, in violation of the Youth Law without the presence of their parents, and their remand has been extended until Sunday, January 6. The detained minors have not met with either an attorney or their parents since their detention. 
Honenu Attorney Adi Keidar: “Just now we received an announcement of the extension of the order preventing the minors from meeting with their attorneys. It appears that the GSS has no substantial evidence on the suspects and they need to make use of the unacceptable means of preventing the detainees from meeting with an attorney, completely ignoring the fact that the detainees are minors. We will demand that the court immediately bring the duration of the order to its end and allow us to meet with the minors now.” 
Attorney Itamar Ben Gvir added, “It turns out that the GSS has not learned a thing. Instead of internalizing this morning’s decision [referring to a judge invalidating confessions] and understanding that there is a limit to their ruses and that there is a red line regarding denial of the right to meet with attorneys and violation of the rights of interrogatees. Also in this case they continue to deprive them of their right to meet with an attorney. 
“Our main concern is that because there is no attorney present, there is no-one overseeing the treatment and no supervision, and therefore the detainees are being treated in detention facilities in the same way that they were previously treated.

Alleged Jewish Terror Cell Arrested by Shin Bet
Save these 3 youth from an abusive investigation as other Hilltop Youth in similar situations have endured in the past.

From past experience there is good reason to be very concerned for the welfare of these kids!

Please call Ron Dermer, Ambassador of Israel to the United States and demand that these kids be treated fairly and with basic fundamental  human, legal rights.

Israel's Embassy
2023645500 ext 8.

 If no one answers wait as it rings, which can be a long time, until the answering machine picks up. Leave a message.

Demand that these boys have

- A right to their attorney and access to their attorney

- A right to know the allegations brought against them

- There must be credible evidence that supports  allegations of wrongdoing. Habeus corpus! Evidence can not be based on forced confessions following physical, emotional, mental abuse, torture or harassment on them or on members of their families. .

On the past when Jewish Hilltop Youth connected with Tag Mechir and Duma were arrested, they were denied basic human, civil and legal rights based on their designation of being Jewish Terrorists and their affiliation with Kahane or Kach a designated Terror organization. They were denied access to their attorney as they were interrogated and threatened physically, denied sleep, food etc. emotionally and even sexually threatened until they confessed to wrongdoing. Even in the case of a minor. Much effort, resources and money were invested to extract these forced confessions.

Three years later their trial is exposing blatant violations of their legal and human rights still with no credible evidence proving that  they were the perpetrators of the Duma arson.  Arabs were apparently not even investigated in spite of clan infighting. There is good reason to suspect that these kids were framed and set up as suspects by the Jewish Division of Terror of the Shabak.  Political Figures, Knesset Members, Media, Rabbonim all rushed to condemn Jewish Hilltop Terror activity before any fair and just trial proved that they were actually guilty. Their good name smeared.

We can't let these normative Yeshiva kids suffer like Elisha Odess and Amiram ben Uliel.

As the trial is finally happening for the Duma suspects Elisha Odess and Amiram ben Uliel, the following documentary was released on Channel 12 and it's quite remarkable that three Yeshiva Shomron kids were arrested today.  Apparently Shabak etc are digging in deep not giving up....

The Duma Documentary on the Acco staging of צ. (H)

Channel 12 
תכנית "עובדה"

בלעדי: הקולות מ"תרגיל המדובבים" בעכו
"תיאטרון ההודאות": עמרי אסנהיים חושף לראשונה בתוכנית "עובדה" את הקולות מ"כלא עכו". ככה זה נשמע כשהמשטרה נחושה לפצח טרור יהודי

This is a documentary of a staged prison scene where Elisha Odess then 17 aka צ who was allegedly charged with property damage was the main character, the only non actor, and it shows how they intimidated him to confess to crimes so that they can hold him longer to later nail him with other charges.

They actually staged an entire prison scene in the closed down  museum Acco prison with the prison guards and prisoners and interrogators  all actors all for Elishas 'benefit" , to make him confess to crimes. 

I wonder how much this cost and who is funding this budget!

His "cellmates" were supposedly a murderer, a drug dealer,  someone violent and "Arabs"and Jews were not separated in this staged play. Elisha asked to be with minors like himself realizing something was wrong in this scenario... They planted a bag of powdery substance under his mattress, and other manipulation to terrify him and get him to confess.

It gets worse....

Elisha describes to his intorregator who he trusted more than his cell mates how he was tortured being tied to a chair in unnatural positions etc (after they approved special measures when he didn't admit to anything after 3 Weeks and they were most certainly determined to find a Jewish perpetrator of the Duma arson).

Elisha was terrified for his life, under perceived physical and sexual attack from his actor cellmates unless he admitted to some alleged crimes.

It's really incredible that this actually  happened except that it did and this documentary evidence has live recordings of the trial proceedings from the Acco prison staging   reenacted.

Just a side note comparing a real Terrorist to a fake one.

Compare Elisha Odess to Palestinian  kids  in David Bedeins documentary of UNRWA camps.   Palestinian kids are very proud to announce how much they would love to be a martyr, kill, capture, kidnap, stab,stone and murder the Jews. No need to stage a whole play to get them to admit their innermost desires of hostility towards Jews.   

Please watch this  Channel 12 documentary yourself...

Today December 30, 2018 3 new Jewish Boys are being held in prison with no access to a lawyer according to Itamar ben Gvir the Honenu Lawyer representing the minor.

We must demand that the Shabak Division of Jewish Terror be disbanded and defunded at once and the Terror designation for those affiliated with the late Rabbi Kahane and Kach be revoked as it was a political not truthful designation. This false designation has stripped basic human rights from Settler Youth as they are depicted as ticking time bombs denied habeous corpus and legal rights of representation.

In honor of the dear heads of the public, peace be upon you.

Once again suspects' rights are being trampled in Judea and Samaria, minors are again placed in solitary confinement in order to break them and extract confessions of violence.
Unfortunately, it turns out that there are among the state authorities who think that there are citizens who apply the laws of the state and some do not. Some have human rights and others do not.

We expect you not to remain silent.

The price of the brutal behavior of the legal authorities is a mental breakdown of boys, who at the end of the investigation are found to be innocent of any crime - this must not be allowed to happen.
We welcome the clarification of the truth, but it must be within the limits of fairness, law and justice.

Three Jewish minors from Yesha were arrested at the beginning of the week and are being held in the dungeons of the Shabak.

They are not permitted to meet with an attorney!!!
They are not permitted to see their parents!!!!!
Three Jewish children being treated like dangerous terrorists!!!!! 

DUMA ONE was horrific enough!!! We will not allow a Duma Two!!!!

We all remember the horror of the false libel against a number of "hilltop" youth who were interrogated and tortured for weeks physically and emotionally  to force them to confess to an arson which was most likely perpetrated by Arabs in the town of Duma. They were sexually and physically abused by the interrogators and police to obtain forced confessions. One of these innocent boys tried to commit suicide.


We must stop this new libel before these young Jewish innocent boys are tortured in the Shabak dungeons, destroying their young lives with unimaginable horrors. This is not the Soviet Union!!! This is not the Gestapo!!! This is the State of Israel!!!!.

Hillary's Russia Doomsday Scenario

Posted: 27 Dec 2018 02:15 PM PST

The Steele dossier, a document produced by Christopher Steele at the behest of the Clinton campaign is ground zero for the Russia conspiracy theory that is tearing apart the country. Even the Mueller investigation has its ultimate roots in the eavesdropping carried out by the Obama administration using the dossier as evidence and the dubious and unverified claims made by Steele in the dossier.

But why did the Clinton campaign ever set out to create such a document?

The Steele dossier has been described as opposition research and it was certainly circulated among reporters in order to spread the Russia conspiracy theory in the media, but its contents were circulated more in the Obama era FBI and the DOJ, and its media rounds seemed more geared to creating stories that would justify a FISA warrant than to any serious effort to sway the electorate with its attacks.

The dossier was never convincing opposition research because its central claim, that Trump was a Russian agent, was too farfetched and detached from election issues to ever connect with voters. It required the complicity of the FBI and the DOJ, and Mueller's sanction, to give it any credibility.

The dossier's real role was legal, not political. It wasn't meant for the tabloids, but to create a pretext for an investigation of Trump and his associates. And so it's easy to see its usefulness to the Dems today.

But why create a pretext for a secret investigation of Trump before the election was even done?

The FISA warrants had always raised the possibility that the investigation was used to collect information on a rival campaign. And, because of the slow pace of declassification and the lack of a thorough release of information about exactly what was done and who was responsible, that remains a real possibility. But a recent statement by Christopher Steele raises an even more disturbing possibility.

Steele had been hired by Fusion GPS, a smear firm, which in turn had been hired by the Clinton campaign through Perkins Coie.

In response to a lawsuit, Steele admitted that, "Fusion's immediate client was law firm Perkins Coie. It engaged Fusion to obtain information necessary for Perkins Coie LLP to provide legal advice on the potential impact of Russian involvement on the legal validity of the outcome of the 2016 US Presidential election."

"Based on that advice, parties such as the Democratic National Committee and HFACC Inc. (also known as 'Hillary for America') could consider steps they would be legally entitled to take to challenge the validity of the outcome of that election."

The Steele dossier would have been mostly worthless in a conventional legal challenge of the election outcome, but it was used to launch a very different brand of "legal challenge" that is more often seen in banana republics in which police powers are abused to target the political opposition.

It is highly implausible that the Clinton campaign had hired a firm to investigate the possibility of Russian election tampering as far back as April or June. But it could have been laying the groundwork for a variety of scenarios, including a doomsday scenario in which Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump.

It's a matter of faith among both Democrats and Republicans that Hillary Clinton never expected to lose. And there's certainly plenty of evidence of arrogance and complacency by the Clinton campaign. But Steele's reply offers evidence that some people in the Clinton campaign had a doomsday plan.

To understand why, consider the unique natures of both the Clinton and Trump campaigns.

The Clinton campaign wasn't just a candidacy thrown together a year or two before an election. It was Clintonworld, a political network going back decades, an interface between government, charity and political campaigns, with loyalists whose entire careers had been built around the Clintons. There's been nothing quite like it in American history. And it all depended on one unappealing politician. Hillary.

Clintonworld had been badly burned by Hillary's loss to Obama. The Clinton Foundation wasn't just about Bill and Hillary. It gave Clintonworlders their own embassy with an international presence, employment opportunities and networking. It was the royal court in exile of the Clintons and it allowed them to maintain an army of loyalists to launch yet another bid for the White House.

A second defeat would be catastrophic because it would kill Clintonworld leaving behind an army of unemployed and unemployable Clintonites with egg on their face after having lost yet another expensive election and burned through another vast fortune of donor cash. And few in the golden halls of Clintonworld wanted to take the fall for Hillary's poor people skills and lack of popular appeal.

They needed a potential election defeat to be illegitimate even before it happened.

But there was something even bigger at stake. Shortly after Steele got to work on his dossier, Trump was cheering the "Lock her up" chants directed at Hillary. The Clintons had done plenty of things to be locked up for. But Clintonworld staffers knew that Bill and Hillary were unlikely to ever go down. If a new DOJ were to seriously go after them, it would be the minions of Clintonworld who would take the fall.

The Steele dossier became Plan B. A doomsday scenario in case the impossible truly happened.

Was Plan B meant to be Hillary's revenge by bringing down her rival even if he defeated her? Was it a conspiracy to cripple any possible investigation of the Clintons by instead enmeshing Trump in legal troubles? Was it an excuse to eavesdrop on the Trump campaign? A last ditch effort by Clinton staffers to justify their loss? It could be any and all of the above. But the tactics do reveal certain clues.

The Russia theme enabled abuses like the FISA warrant. Any scandal short of foreign espionage would not have allowed the Obama administration and its Clinton allies to pull off their own Watergate. Being able to eavesdrop on Trump allies was crucial to the conspiracy. But false accusations are also revealing. The accusers tend to slander their targets by accusing them of their own crimes to cover them up. What Trump and his allies have been accused of, is what Clintonworld most feared being accused of.

General Michael Flynn was a special target. The NSC had been abused, and so had to be secured. But one obvious personal reason was the "Lock her up" chants. Revenge is a cliché, but it should never be overlooked when it comes to the famously spiteful Clintons. An ongoing investigation building to impeachment looks a lot like the Clintons seeking revenge for Bill.

Would the Clintons have diverted effort and energy from the campaign to plot a doomsday scenario? We don't know, but a group in the campaign and integrated within the government certainly did.

There's been a lot of talk about the 'deep state'. But anyone who knows Washington D.C. also knows that there are many deep states. Some are ideological, most are careerist. Moving up the ladder is about making the right connections. Political patronage isn't just a necessary evil, but a way of life. Transactional opportunism defines the microscopic political universe of the city that runs the country.

"Lock her up" was less of a threat to Hillary Clinton than to the people who had been doing her dirty work, and everyone who had been doing their dirty work. Even more than the threat of prison, the fall of Clintonworld was a blow to countless careers. And then there were the Obama people who weren't invested in Clintonworld, but were concerned about the light being shined under their particular rock.

The Steele dossier was a clumsy instrument, but it got the job done. And if it was clumsy, that may be because no one ever thought that it would be truly needed or ever see the light of day. It was badly made because it wasn't a priority. But then it was truly needed, and it was too late to fix it, so it had to be put into action as it was, with all its errors and absurd nonsense.

The Clinton campaign spared enough resources to create a post-election doomsday weapon. It built the weapon and detonated it. And the radioactivity from the blast has poisoned our political system.

Dirty tricks are part of politics. But few presidential candidates have the spite and hubris to create a dirty trick that blows up the presidency even when it can no longer benefit them in any obvious way.

Hillary Clinton never made history the way she wanted to. But she made history anyway.

Fwd: then and now . Where are the Maccabees of Today?The true Israeli Apartheid by Tour Guide Shalom Pollack No go areas for Jews.

---------- Forwarded message ---------
From: Shalom Pollack <>

Subject: then and now

-"We come not to these lands as a foreign conqueror. Our forefathers were forcefully expelled from our God-given lands by the Babylonians and by His grace, we are back in our homeland. We are returning to what is rightfully ours. You are sitting on our lands and the time has come for you to remove yourselves from them."

This clear and unapologetic statement was made by Yochanan Horkinus the Macabbee leader 2,100 years ago.

After His father and uncles(the five Maccabee brothers) won a prolonged war of liberation and religious liberty from the Greek world power, Yochanan turned his attention to the pockets of foreign occupation that developed during the generations of Jewish exile and military impotence.
That had now changed with the astounding routing of successive vast Greek armies.
It was time to reassert Jewish sovereignty in all the land of Israel.
That meant all those peoples who have filled the vacuum and trespassed while the Jews were in exile.
The process of reconquest led to the establishment of the widest borders since the time of  King David and Solomon.

Fast forward two thousand years.
 The Jewish people miraculously return from, not seventy years of exile but close to two thousand, culminating with the worst blow ever delivered to the Jewish people or any people ever.

Despite impossible odds, the tattered remains of the Jewish people rebuilt (bought before being attacked) and claimed their homeland; the same one that Yochanan the Macabbee reclaimed twenty-one hundred years ago.
The liberation of the land came in stages and at a heavy price - just as it was in the times of the Maccabees.
Who is not familiar with the amazing history-making dates, nineteen forty-eight and nineteen sixty-seven?

However, unlike the Maccabees, the leaders of the modern returnees did not possess the belief that it was God that has indeed wrought these extraordinary miracles for us.
They would never dare make a speech such as Yochanan the Maccabee did when returning to the land.

Another watershed date will always be remembered in Jewish history as the exact opposite of the 1948 and 1967 miracles and certainly unlike the events or twenty-one hundred years ago.

 I refer to 1993 and the perfidious, nefarious, "Oslo" agreements.
Instead of claiming and securing sovereignty over lands liberated in the miraculous Six Day War of 1967, our "leaders" INVITED those who CLAIMED our land as their own to settle on it and then, armed them in order for them to PROTECT us!
It cost us, so far, thousands of Jewish lives.

All this is well known recent historic tragedy.

The entire saga returned to me yesterday when I attended a tour of the Macabeean palaces in Jericho.
I visited this unique (there are no other Maccabean remains found in Israel) site years ago, before the dangers and restrictions that the Oslo "peace" created.
I remember being wowed by the enormity of the find and feeling directly atttached to the Macabbees at that moment and place.
The palaces, swimming pools, the mikvah, and especially the synagogue were spectacular.
It was an impressive excavation that stood by itself with no buildings or agriculture anywhere near it.
It stood alone in its brilliance as a rare gem should.

 Though I have since discussed the find that I was privileged to see many years ago with tourists, as we bypass Jericho (area "A" - a no-go area for Jews), I have not been back there for many years.  The Oslo peace, you know.

Yesterday, Chanukah I returned.
The excavations are in "area C". This, according to the Oslo agreement is an area under full Israeli control, as opposed to A and B in which Jews are very sternly warned not to enter due to great potential physical harm (at the hands of our peace partners whom we have graciously armed).
Despite it being in area C and an official Israel national park, the authorities do not allow free Jewish access due to what they deem political/security considerations since it is near area A.
 Complicated, I know..

A number of groups have petitioned the military administration in charge of the "territories" to allow Jews to visit the spectacular site - at least once a year, on Chanukah.
After much effort, permission was granted for one day (out of the entire year).
That is how I found myself attending a tour of a site that I had seen with such ease and comfort years ago. This time there was a very large military presence that protected us from the locals who entered "our" area C with impunity.
 I suppose the force was also there to make sure that Jews did not wander off into "their" territory which would have been a major political issue or perhaps even a lynching.

The site is almost unrecognizable.

The Arabs use the surrounding areas as garbage dumps. Where I saw, years ago, open spaces around the site, now are cluttered with an assortment of huts, animal pens, hothouses, and garbage. Arabs continually damage the priceless artifacts.

It was explained to us that the Arab presence near the site is indeed area C - ours, BUT the Israeli authorities just do not enforce the law. This criminal negligence is common all over the "territories" - except when it comes to enforcing the law against Jews. In that case, there are never a lack of resources or determination - or cruelty on the part of the Israeli authorities..

Needless to say, my  Chanuka visit to the Macabee palace made me think of my last visit there so many years ago; the one that filled me with pride and joy; the one that made it very clear why I left the USA and came home.
It made me think of the speech given by Yochanan, the one that was the exact opposite of the warning on the big red signs that forbid Jews to enter parts of our beloved land (this is the true apartheid in Israel).

Yesterday I and many others on the tour asked ourselves, why? Why?
Where are the Maccabees today? Where?

To: Morty Mehlman
Cc: Askanim

Dear Morty et al, amvsh

Please open links to this week's FJJ coverage on current Yeshiva crises.

Rabbi Brudny said we need to do Teshuva. Teshuva for what? Let me suggest the following.


Flatbush Jewish Journal page26 Dec 13,2018

Flatbush Jewish Journal page 27 Dec 13,2018

Rabbi Reismans video clip

Let me add that even President Trump has reason to be concerned of impeachment as the Democrats come into power in the House in January  as they use the courts to investigate and find criminal offenses on their perceived enemy basically the family and associates of  President Trump. If this is the case and even President Trump is vulnerable to baseless charges and probes why do we expect a fair and just hearing on behalf of the Yeshivot. Focusing on the details is counterproductive. If their goal is not education but rather a political agenda, the court and investigation are for prosecution purposes alone, biased and dangerous. Our sound and logical arguments will hit a deaf ear.

Here are some recent examples to make our hair stand on end. Mike Huckabee is a credible and honest mentch even if we aren't Republican.  These posts were in his latest newsletter. 

Guess who "investigated" the Clinton Foundation?

Only one possible conclusion: Gen. Flynn was railroaded

Therefore doing what's right and going on the offensive against the enemies of Israel is the only way to survive. Passivity and complacency is no longer an option! 

Teshuva?  Lets go back to 2015.

Iran Deal Advocacy: Rabbi's, OU, Agudath Israel vs Neturei Karta. Neturei Karta Wins? Search on Youtube for "Rabbis DC" and see what comes up

 The OU Advocacy has put their emphasis on closed meeting advocacy with members of Congress.  Gillibrand, Jeffries, Corey Booker, Schumer  etc.

What do they have to show for it?   Not much.  Gillibrand, Jeffries, Booker came out for the Deal.  

Even Schumer disappointed us since he was too busy to study the Iran Deal because he was busy working on the Education bill.  See 3:30 into video with Chuck Schumer:UP WITH STEVE KORNACKI 7/19/15 I'll make up my own mind on Iran nuke deal .  

Just knowing that Iran was getting $150 billion dollars of sanctions relief is reason enough to come out against it. What exactly about the deal did he have to study? (Caroline Glick at Times Square Rally opposing the Deal)

When Gillibrand and other Democrats came out in support of the deal, Schumer finally came out against it.   Even after knowing that there were hidden side deals, Schumer didn't try very hard to convince fellow Democrats that this was a bad deal.   Even with his lukewarm opposition, Obama came out with full force backlash...

BTW, Yes, the Yeshivoth did received promises of big bucks from New York State early this summer around this time..Schumer was probably focusing on this! Monies that were somehow owed to private schools from 9,10 years ago.... reimbursable...Impeccable timing?


 Earlier this summer, the New York State Education Department announced that over the next two years it would be distributing $250 million in mandated services/CAP reimbursement to nonpublic schools across the state with $125 million to be paid out in each of the two years...
Mrs. Deborah Zachai, Director of Education Affairs for Agudath Israel of America, explained that these monies have been owed to nonpublic schools for more than a decade. Due to budget shortfalls and the use of a flawed formula to calculate the actual reimbursement due to nonpublic schools, the debt accumulated and became substantial over a more than ten year period.
It has been a long-standing legislative priority for Agudath Israel of America – whose late president Rabbi Moshe Sherer was instrumental in getting the mandated services law enacted over 40 years ago – to obtain payment on the debt. The state's allocation of $250 million for this purpose, goes a long way towards accomplishing that priority.

"We are absolutely thrilled that, at long last, the state has begun making payments on the debt it has owed yeshivos and other nonpublic schools for so many years. We anticipate that the yeshiva share of these funds should be approximately $80 million over the next two years, in addition to the regular mandated and CAP payments. This infusion of substantial funding is wonderful news for yeshivos and should significantly help ease their cash flow," said Mrs. Zachai. 
"This development is long overdue, but nonetheless extremely welcome," added Rabbi Chaim Dovid Zwiebel, Agudath Israel's Executive Vice President. "We look forward to working with the State Education Department over the next two years as these vital funds are distributed."

Agudah Advocacy for Iran:

Aside from these posts and this PDF which gives talking points and  sample letters to our elected officials, that's about it. And it is pretty hard to cut and paste a pdf file. 

Agudah has been rather silent. No videos about our G-d Given rights to Eretz Yisroel,  Yehuda and Shomron based on commentaries of the  Biblical boundaries of Eretz Yisroel delineated in Parshat Masei. No videos about a dangerous Iran deal,

It says Kirsten Gillibrand called these women of the Women's March, suffragettes.

      AntiSemites seem to be a more accurate description!

Shea, the best service we can do to Memorialize Holocaust Survivors, is to expose and not empower those who align themselves with the likes of Linda Sarsour!

Hakeem Jeffries, Yvette Clark, Jumaane Williams, Kirsten Gillibrand,  etc. etc.  and I would even examine Bill deBlasio, and those with close ties to the Cuomo Administration are suspect.  

New York and California are Democratic strongholds and they are states that have large Jewish presence...

Just like in Egypt the enslavement began on a friendly patriotic note it spiraled to a point of no return until the Exodus.

No money or entitlement must mask the true agenda of AntiSemitic political figures. While we must brace for a backlash, we must hold tight to our faith and never allow our enemies, dangerous enemies to society at large, to become empowered even at the risk of turning away funding for very worthy social programs and Yeshiva Education.

Probably this Educational Regulations compliance crisis from the Commissioner of the Board of Ed is a wake uo call to the dangers of such compliance and  that it is merely a matter of time and just a precursor to institute progressive liberal content into our children's education. Failure of compliance brings the risk of getting cut off of Democrat sourced govt funding and even worse, declaring all our schools substandard and all our kids truant? 

Let us ask ourselves did Education funding buy silence of the Jewish Community not to effectively protest the Iran Deal? I hope not but what reasonable explanation is there for our Communitys weak protest of Iran building up a nuclear arsenal. Is this funding now coming to haunt us? Just a rhetorical question.

The education of even the most Chassidic schools produce literate kids (albeit Yiddish:) with analytical skills who are respectful and most important not a danger to society or others.

There is always continuing education if and when they need it.  Parents should not be punished for choosing such a school. Of course, no need to provide them secular textbooks etc. if they won't be used. Entitlements comes with strings attached.. Surely Kosher secular textbooks  that meet govt standards and the private school standards, are their due since all citizens pay taxes that should help cover  the secular education of the American citizen and  taxpayer.

Will liberal progressive  New York State Judges see our side?

BH Trump is in power surrounded by G-d fearing and faith based advisers.  When our community fails to support and acknowledge his efforts and often belittles him, and undermines him by consistently putting him or his wife in a negative light, we are hurting his ability to help fight evil and help fight our dangerous enemies Iran and radical Islam.  He is cleaning up the swamp and the Justice Dept and appointing credible and Conservative Judges. This is a very high priority of the current administration.

Surely we can work with the Republicans and the Trump Administration so that  orgs like JCCMP and Yeshivas are not dependent on funds coming from Democrat sources who very likely have an antiSemitic and sinister  agenda and rather find alternative funding  coming from sources that are wholesome.

True they will ask something back in return and frankly our community is more than ready and capable. But if we get something for nothing from the Democrats who have hijacked the Democrat party of our parents,  we are probably selling our soul. 

In this Messianic era, Am Yisroel must be a beacon of light to the nation's of the world a Mamlechet Kohanim veGoy Kadosh. Maybe it's time to put some of our Kollel yungerleit who presently are on Medicaid, welfare and foodstamps and  stabilize their income with stipends while asking them to put in a few hours of public service for the benefit of general society. 

We can all attest that many of these learner's are the cream of the crop.

 In fact, I can't see justification for sitting and learning full time when there are unfortunately many of our own who desperately need support and guidance.  At the very least, our own kids at risk may be saved from the real dangers of the streets. Surely lessons learned from our beautiful Chesed Orgs can also be applied to the general population at Our Place,  Bikur Cholim Orgs, RCCS etc

It's amazing to help the Survivors and I am looking forward to your recent Shirei HaPleita CD and  my 97 year old Holocaust survivor mother shetichye amvSh is even eligible for a free one :). . 

It's even more amazing to ensure the next generation that such evil will be nipped in the bud before it can escalate to the horrors and genocide of our parents and grandparents.

Who Is Letitia James? Incoming New York Attorney General Plans Massive Investigation of Donald Trump and Family


Another fake investigation with a predetermined verdict. All that needs to be done is to manufacture the evidence... Keep on investigating the entire family and anyone connected to Trump if necessary until you can find evidence that brings down the President.

 She isn't even embarrased to spell it out..

Is that the typical job description for an Attorney General? 

Who will investigate the investigator?
