Where are the Charedi Luminaries?

[Hat tip DS]

The original (24/4/215) in Hebrew is here from Chadrei Charedim. I haven’t seen it elsewhere in English.

A Givati Brigade Commander went to see two of his Charedi soldiers who were in dire poverty in Meah Shearim. The Jewish Terrorists of Meah Shearim, then set on him and his car for daring to come and aid etc. The mother of the Brigade Commander noted that her husband was Rav Getz, the Rav of the Kotel, who had good relationships between these Meshugoim. About 50 of them, men and children lay on the road, smashed his car and wouldn’t let him leave. They knew he was too kind to do anything to them. Have we heard any voice of condemnation from the Charedi Badatz.

I’d take the 50, and put them on a farm in Beersheba and make them work for a year. They slept soundly at night while this brigade leader and his soldiers risked their lives and this is the thanks they get.

Enough is enough. We have to send a message to these extremists. When they come to my door, again, I will give them the least and tell them that instead of travelling the world they’d be better off enlisting in an old age home and helping people in Israel and earning a wage. They aren’t geniuses, they are not the chosen few who should be sitting and learning all their lives. That is the domain of the real McCoy.

These Jewish Terrorists are a gross Chillul Hashem, and they remind me of the Sunni vs Shiite war that is raging. They do not see the rest of us as useful or part of the Jewish Kehilla (unless of course you are flashing hundred-dollar bills).


Jewish Meah Shearim Thugs

וְשֹׁחַד לֹא תִקָּח כִּי הַשֹּׁחַד יְעַוֵּר פִּקְחִים וִיסַלֵּף דִּבְרֵי צַדִּיקִים

I've enjoyed being a computer science professor in Melbourne, Australia, as well as band leader/singer for the Schnapps Band. My high schooling was in Chabad and I continued at Yeshivat Kerem B'Yavneh in Israel and later in life at Machon L'Hora'ah, Yeshivas Halichos Olam.

  1. There was actually in this week;s Hamodia – the paper you slammed in previous post – an editorial about this, saying that they condemn it and that those who do these things can not be called chareidi jews. that it brings only a chillul hashem.
    So perhaps you can start giving out your hundred-dollar-bills to those who support Hamodia’s stand on the issue….


    1. That’s good but you hopefully aren’t seriously claiming that because Hamodia, who aren’t friends with the meshugoim in Meah Shearim is now credible because they mentioned and criticised the actions of those charedi thugs?

      My point was all their big articles (unless they are about secular people) were painted with ‘revisionist paint’ or were half the truth. Don’t you get sick of reading that almost everyone is a world class tzaddik when you know they have left slabs of contention out?

      I’d rather they not write about Rav Teichtal for example than completely gloss over the remarkable metamorphosis into a religious Zionist that DID occur and for years was attempted to be obfuscated by his family. Get a copy of the Sefer. It’s pure brilliance.


    1. Yes I had seen that story. They should have a conference about hilchos mila and refuse males to attend.

      This is the new Taliban which OVER SENSITISES people to the opposite gender

      They should just follow plain Halacha. Too much laxity or too much chumra is NOT the middle way of the Rambam

      It’s a pity they aren’t machmir on hilchos pedophiles or hilchos husbands who use gittin as blackmail

    Pitputim asked: “Have the Badatz condemned them”, and you answered: “There was actually in this week’s Hamodia – the paper you slammed in previous post – an editorial about this”.

    how does answer pitputim’s question?
