This week's edition of the Jewish and Israel-oriented, Haveil Havalim Blog Carnival is up at It's MY Crisis And I'll Cry If I Need To
The edition is entitled "3 Treats In 1: HH #406 Blogpost = Holy Happiness!"
Rejecting the divine nature of the Torah sheb'al Peh (Oral Torah).
Respecting the historical aspect of the Torah sheb'al Peh, but not "feeling" bound by it.
Taking off their kippoth.
Putting their kippoth back on.
Making Shabbos on Sundays (like the goyim להבדיל)
Talking about spirituality, when that was seen to be attractive.
Talking about "social action" when that was seen to be attractive.
(Where was their "social justice" and "social action" for the sake of European Jews during the Holocaust?)
Refusing to make women "rabbis."
Making women "rabbis."
Refusing to make gays and lesbians "rabbis."
Making gays and lesbians "rabbis."
That a person should disparage “homosexual female tefillin wearing rabbis” probably says more about such an individual than it does about the rabbi, but that is another matter! (Incidentally, Bruria and Rashi’s daughters among others are reported to have laid tefillin.)Throw a kippah, tallith, and tefillin on someone, who may or may not be Jewish, it doesn't matter in the least. It doesn't matter if that individual is a homosexual female or a heterosexual male. That individual may even be Jewish! The outward symbols, the accoutrements, do not magically turn that individual wearing them, into someone who leads those following to him, OR HER, down a Jewish path.
Well, MK Yachimovich's perspective on what Jewish values are or are not, are simply,...not Jewish.
Army rabbinic rulings book declares ‘goyim’ don’t have equal rights in Israel, recommends that women not affix mezuzas
IDF Chief Rabbi
Stuart Winer, April 21, 2013
The IDF’s top rabbi came under fire Sunday, days after the publication of a book of IDF rabbinic rulings that said non-Jews do not have the same rights as Jewish citizens and that it is undesirable for women officers to perform the religious ceremony of attaching a mezuza to doorposts.
Opposition leader MK Shelly Yachimovich (Labor) condemned the statement about non-Jews as “dark and dangerous, against Jewish values, democratic values, the values of the IDF and the laws of the State and its declaration of independence.” (cont.)
MK Elazar Stern's "real world" is not the Torah world, I am afraid. Nonetheless, I am far from surprised. It's as if MK Stern's religion is "The State of Israel," not Judaism. And, no, ladies and gentlemen, they are not one and the same. And, while we're at it, let us make sure not to confuse "The State of Israel" with Jewish sovereignty over the Land of Israel, either....MK Elazer Stern (Hatnua) called on IDF Chief Rabbi Rafi Peretz to unequivocally declare that there is no place in the army’s literature for use of the phrase “goyim” — literally, “nations” — when referring to IDF soldiers.“It is about time that the army rabbinate joined the real world of the IDF,” said Stern, who chairs the Knesset Religion and State lobby. “They are part of the people’s army, with all its different shades.” (cont.)

Op-Ed: Islamicized Sweden Has Declared War on the JewsGuilio Meotti makes some good points. If you continue reading his Op-Ed, you will no doubt find even more good points.
Violence dominates the streets and a Jew in Sweden today feels like a Jew in Berlin in the '20s.
Giulio Meotti, April 20, 2013
In 2003, Azzam Tamimi, a Hamas member from Hevron, delivered a sermon at the Great Mosque in Stockholm, expressing support for suicide attacks against Israeli civilians. Outside the mosque, militants distributed leaflets containing calls to "liquidate the Jews in Palestine in the name of Allah"....
...The Jews of Malmö, a community of about 1,500 in a city of 300,000 led by an anti-Semite like Reepalu, is a microcosm of what is happening elsewhere in the West.
In Sweden, which has one of the largest Muslim communities in Europe, the Jewish communities spend 25 per cent of their funds on security measures. It is a ghettoized and dying community.
Violence dominates the streets and a Jew in Sweden today feels like a Jew in Berlin in the '20s. (cont.)
Unfortunately, many Swedish Jewish leaders have capitulated to the ghetto mentality as well.Sounds like the sins of the spies to me (Num. 13-14), only much worse. Will such individuals, and those who listen to them, even be allowed to come into the Land? I pray that they do teshuvah (repent), by preparing to make aliyah (immigrate to Israel), and encourage all other Jews in their community to do the same.
When popular daily Aftonbladet falsely charged the IDF of harvesting Palestinians Arabs' organs and Israel asked the Swedish government to issue a condemnation, Lena Posner, head of the Jewish community in Stockholm and president of the Official Council of Jewish Communities in Sweden, declared: "Israel caused all this mess."

1. She doesn't believe any of what she is a "scholar" in2. OR she is naive, and believes in the Western/assimilationist line of trying to force the Arab's square peg into a Western, circular hole.3. OR she is quite skilled in manipulating the sources, and I have, indeed, underestimated her.

Potential Outcome Predictions [POP]:
1. MK Regev will back down.
2. MK Regev will be hung out to dry by PM Netanyahu.
3. MK Regev will be strung up by PM Netanyahu, and her name will be mysteriously absent from the Likud's list of candidates in the next elections.
4. It will be revealed that MK Regev will was set up to do PM Netanyahu's dirty work, to satisfy the right, and to distract us, while he gives up other parts of Israel in "piece process."
5. PM Netanyahu will wait and see which way the wind blows, and then decide what to do with MK Regev. Make her a Minister at the next opportunity? Or condemn her at the next opportunity?Stay tuned.

"For all of you poor, displaced San Diego-ites, the quest to find an authentic carne asada burrito is always disappointing, until now.... It's been over 4 years since I was in S.D. last and I have been craving this burrito ever since. I ate 5 of these bad boys in 2 days. I would take a bite, close my eyes, and dream of La Jolla, Balboa park or a stroll around Seaport Village. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did."
