The parents should be fined

More disgraceful acts in Beth Shemesh. Read it here

For most of my life, I've enjoyed being a computer science professor in Melbourne, Australia, as well as band leader/singer for the Schnapps Band. That being said, being a Zayda trumps it all. My high schooling was in Chabad and I continued at Yeshivat Kerem B'Yavneh in Israel.

One thought on “The parents should be fined”

  1. There’s a famous story – I’m sure you know it but I’ll repeat it for the blog. R’ Amram Blau A”H was speaking with the Brisker Rov A”H about a protest in which R’ Blau had laid down in front of a government vehicle. “You’re a Zionist!” said the Rov.
    “What do you mean,” protested R’ Blau, “I was protesting against them, nobody hates the government more than me!”
    – “Would you have done this back in Europe?” asked the Rov. “You wouldn’t have, because they’d have run you over. You trust the Israeli government to treat you decently. You’re a Zionist.”

    Anyway, the Quakers in Bet Shemesh trust the government to treat them decently and without excessive violence; they put on the stupid shtick with the Holocaust uniforms to embarrass the government into doing (what they think is) the right thing. They feel themselves part of the national enterprise and so they’re Zionists whether they acknowledge it or not.
