Reform Movement: Bringing Jews Closer,... To What?

מוצש"ק פר' פנחס תשע"ג

NRG: The President of the Reform Movement: "We are learning from Chabba"d how to bring [Jews] closer to Judaism."
The Reform "rabbi" Rick Jacobs says that in his movement, it is understood that in the current era, one does not have to wait for Jews - rather go to them: "In Chabba"d they have understood this for years. We also want to be like this."

(Tip Credit: Life In Israel)

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Oh, great! Just what we need!

Women in bikinis handing out Shabbath candles on Ben-Yehudah Street in Jerusalem, or on the Venice Beach Boardwalk, or in New York's Central Park.

Shabbath field trips or road trips to night clubs and the beach. Don't forget to bring money to buy Shabbath lunch.

I remember one the Reform Movement's "Hessed Projects," handing out sandwiches on Kikar Tzion (Zion Square). Do I really have to tell you what was in those sandwiches? No. I didn't think so. Because we all know.

because after all, anything goes! Do Jews really have such short memories? Does no one recall the Reform stance the halakhah (Torah Law)? It is not binding.

Try as it may to change its image, the Reform Movement simply cannot, B"H. Take kippahs off, putting them back on, wearing talithoth which look like those priests and ministers, wearing talithoth which look like Orthodox Jews, emphasize rationalism, emphasize spirituality, looks very much like the flexible strategist and multi-faced Esau. Yet, it makes absolutely no difference. Those who fall into the clutches of the Reform Movement are those who always have:
1. Jews who are so distanced from Judaism, that (by no fault of their own), they will believe that anything is Judaism.

2. People who are not Jewish, whether they think they are or not.

3. Jews who are actively trying to find excuses and various other means to rebel against the Torah.
Later in the article, Rick Jacobs was asked...

Perhaps the problem is that the majority of Reform are not sufficiently committed to Judaism - The do not come to the synagogue every Shabbat and do not keep kashrut and mitzvot?
"I do not agree with this statement. Assimilation is a side-effect of social openness. During specific periods of time in Europe there wasn't any concern over assimilation, because no one wanted us. In the U. s. and in Canada, it's another. An example of this it is possible to see in the Clinton Family, there Chelsea married a Jew."

I am not at all certain how this answer helps Rick Jacobs's argument. I doubt that it was his intention, but there seems to be an implication here that the isolation of Jews prevented at least one problem, that of assimilation. I happen to believe this to be true. I am just rather surprised that such a statement came from Rick Jacobs mouth.

But, by all means, please double-check my translation of the article.

When asked whether he would perform such a [mixed] marriage, Jacob's replied that he did not currently perform marriages. Some in the Reform Movement would perform such a marriage, but many do not.

Interesting non-response, if you ask me. But that doesn't matter. Assimilation concerns Jacobs, and yet his own Reform Movement is just making it worse, acceptance of intermarriage probably even being the least of their problems. The precedence given to Western "progressive," assimilationist "social justice" over Torah justice is probably one of their biggest obstacles, guaranteeing their eventual fall.

Rick Jacobs's "dream" of bringing Jews closer to Judaism is more like a delusion. Because the Reform Movement is not Jewish,...not in the least.

Reformism is its own religion. So, when they send out their emissaries to bring Jews to closer to Judaism, they will actually be leading them farther away from Judaism.

In fact, they will be leading them deeper into the depths of assimilation, not to mention, closer to sin.

I Am A Feminist!

ערב שבת קודש פר' פנחש תשע"ג

XX Power!
I am a feminist. You are a strong and independent woman, and I would not want to offend your strength and independence by offering my seat to you on the bus. By keeping my seat, I am demonstrating my utmost respect for your womanhood.

Excuse me? Aren't you going to open the door for me? You are obviously a self-hating women, suffering from years of oppression by the hierarchical patriarchy. If you open the door for a man, you will simultaneously be opening the door to your own, new found freedom.

By belching or passing gas in front of you, I am treating you just as I would treat one of my best buds, like an equal. I show you respect in this way, because I am a feminist.

Of course, I am staring at the beautiful process, of the exercising of your "right" to breast feed in public, without covering up your bare breast-giver-of-sustenance to your infant. The oppressive patriarchy forcing you to cover up, acts out of its own jealousy. By staring at your bare breast, I am supporting your "right" to do as you please with your body, whenever, and wherever you like, regardless of how it affects other people around you, including other marginalized women with their voice silenced.


I am not entirely certain as to how you fell into the trap of trusting that there would be a reliable man out there to help you carry home your year supply of feminine hygiene products (in a see through bag), because they happened to be on sale. As a feminist man, I am the first to admit how completely unreliable we men are. By allowing you to carry your products home by yourself, I am refusing to collaborate with the hierarchical patriarchy in keeping you oppressed, convincing you that you are not the strong and independent woman you are, perfectly capable of find a creative way to bring her own feminine hygiene products home.

Using the lady's restroom I find urinals offensive, because they fly in the face of our equality. Thus, I prefer to use the lady's room, where I do not have to see such offensive constructions, reminding us that our physiologies are different.

But, no, of course, I will not put the toilet seat back down. I would not want to insult the strength of your womanhood, suggesting that you are incapable of putting it down by yourself.

Shidduch date: I want to stay home and pop bon-bons. Besides that way, I can provide more direct instruction to our sons, if we are so curse to have male children, in being ashamed of being male and how to hate their penises properly, and how to prepare them to feed their testicles to their wives upon marriage.

No, I will not give you sex tonight,...nor ever. I am a born-again feminist, and I refuse to participate in your oppressive sexual enslavement. I have become enlightened to the sacred knowledge that all heterosexual sex is oppressive,...if not rape. However, I will be happy to give you a foot massage, and worship you.

Top Ten Pretentious Hang-Outs In Jerusalem

י"ט לחודש הרביעי תשע"ג

Emeq Refa'im: The main street runnin
through the German Colony neighborhood
10. Shosh Café in Rechavia
Generic Rechavia pretension.

9. The Village Green on Yaffo Street
Look how frum and healthy I am, and look at me talking very loudly about health and kashruth,...without too much concern for the amount I am inhaling.

8. Greens in Sha'arei Hessed
Pretension for frum families. Overpriced for one, and only one, reason: It is located in Sha'arei Hessed. Wearing your shortest skirt and longest sheitel is a must!

7. Sushi Rechavia on Emeq Refaim
The modestly-priced place to be seen,...dining outside.

"Aroma Espresso Bar"
6. Aroma Café on Hillel (Open on Shabbos)
Look at how hard I'm studying, while I sneak a peek once in a while at a potential sexual conquest.

5. Aroma Café on Har HaTzofim-Hebrew University
Ashkenazy and "Ashkenized," secular elite in training.

4. Aroma Café on Emeq Refa'im
OK. So, by now you should have figured out that most anyplace on Emeq Refa'im is pretentious, mostly for tourists, and "one-year Israelis."

3. Most Any English-speaking Schul in Qatamon
Um, surprises here. Just get over it.... 

P. S. "Shtieblach," just like "gush," is an IMPERSONAL noun, not a personal one.

2. Coffee Shop on Azza
Kind of like Aroma, but with more computers, and a closed out smoking section.

And the most pretentious hang-out in Jerusalem is...

1. Tahanat HaCafe ("The Coffee Mill") on Emeq Refa'im
Pretension so thick, it can be cut with a knife. Self-importance and leftist arrogance are gross understatements.


Please leave a comment with your recommendation for pretentious hang-outs in Jerusalem.

Another Rabbi of the Exile, Keeping the Jew Down

ט"ז לחודש תשע"ג

I used to be proud to have been a member of a Young Israel community. But, after watching this video on Parashath Balaq, I am not so sure. This video was sent to me by my friend Ariel of The Torah Revolution, who introduced it with the following:

"Anything can be and will be read into Torah."

Richard Weiss, Young Israel of Hillcrest
IsraelNationalTV (Arutz 7)

I am truly appalled.

This insane galuth (exile) mentality, the mentality which is found just as much among the Modern Orthodox as the Haredim, non-frum, and secular, maintains my pessimism that the 80% of Jews stuck in the galuth of Edom will not make it out, just like those same 80% didn't make it out of Egypt. When will we ever learn?

How did Arutz 7 ever allow this on its channel?

The "rabbi" needs to open his eyes, and then go learn halakhah (Torah Law). Everything he said about "innocent civilians" in based on a Western assimilationist galuth mentality, not halakhah.

Yes, rabbi, halakhah is not just about "kashrus and shabbos shailos," divorce or contracts. It is an integral part of every aspect of a Jew's life, including how to run a (proper) Jewish government, how to run a (proper) Jewish military in a (proper) Jewish country.

I suggest that you begin with the Ramba"m's Laws of Kings and their Wars, an UN-censored version, if you please. Focus on the parts related to a milhemeth misswah (obligatory war). Don't understand why this is shayakh? Back up two paragraphs where I suggest that you "open your eyes."

Then you may want to review the mashal of Shimon and Lewi and Shchem. Whether you prefer the Ramba"m's explanation or the Maharal's, the residents were all subject to the death penalty, due to violations of the 7 Misswoth B'nei No'ah,... are the Yishma'elim, albeit worse: not setting up proper courts AND murder of Jews. 

Then, you may want to review the last part of this parashah, the part where the politically-correct, infiltrating, practitioners of avodah zarah, are subjugated to politically-incorrect, capital punishment, resulting in the (politically-incorrect?) diffusing of HaShem's anger.

How is praising the IDF [leadership] for doing a half-ass job, pulling out when the goyim tell them to, and repeating the process all over again? Don't you see that the Arabs have learned long ago how to use this pattern?

You want to save lives? You want to save non-Jewish, Yishma'eli lives, as well as Jewish lives? Then support the IDF in doing the job right for once, quite possibly for the first time since Yom HaKippurim תשל"ד/1973. 

Then bring all of Young Israel of Hillcrest to Israel, further sending the message to the Yishma'elim that the Land of Israel, the ENTIRE Land of Israel belongs to us, and even Jews from Queens are coming to claim it!

MK Hotovely, I have some words for you!

ט"ו לחודש הרביעי תשע"ג

YNET: MK Hotovely: Must give Israeli citizenship to Palestinians

June 20, 2013

Deputy Transport Minister Knesset Member Tzipi Hotovely (Likud) participated in an event marking 20 years for the Oslo Accords and said: "The Oslo paradigm has crashed. It is time to abandon the two-state solution in favor of an annexation resolution, meaning applying Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria and giving an Israeli citizenship to all Palestinians."

Hotovely added that in order to "keep a demographic advantage", a national goal of bringing a million Jews to Israel in the next decade should be set. (Moran Azulay)

Esser Agaroth (2¢): 

MK Tzipi Hotovely (Likud) has truly lost it.

That's all there is to it. At least, I hope that's all there is to it.

רמב"ם, הל' עבודה זרה וחוקי הגויים י,ט 
[ו] אין כל הדברים האלו אמורים, אלא בזמן שגלו ישראל לבין האומות, או בזמן שיד הגויים תקיפה. אבל בזמן שיד ישראל תקיפה על אומות העולם, אסור לנו להניח גוי עובד עבודה זרה בינינו; אפילו יושב ישיבת עראי, או עובר ממקום למקום לסחורה, לא יעבור בארצנו, עד שיקבל עליו שבע מצוות שנצטוו בני נוח--שנאמר "לא יישבו בארצך" (שמות כג,לג), אפילו לפי שעה. ואם קיבל עליו שבע מצוות, הרי זה גר תושב. ואין מקבלין גר תושב, אלא בזמן שהיובל נוהג; אבל שלא בזמן היובל, אין מקבלין אלא גר צדק בלבד.

Ramba"m, Laws of Avodah Zarah and Statutes of the Goyim 10:9
These things mentioned (above) are only in effect during the time when Yisra'el was exiled among the nations, or when the attacking hand of the goyim is upon us. But, when the hand of Yisra'el is upon the nations of the world, it is forbidden for us to place goyim who practice foreign worship among us; even one dwelling here temporarily, or one who moves from place to place for business, he will not pass through our land, until he accepts upon himself the seven misswoth that B'nei No'ah were commanded--as it says "They will not be in. And if he accepted upon himself the seven misswoth [B'nei No'ah], he has the status of a resident alien. But, resident aliens are not accepted, except at the time when the Jubilee [year] is in effect; but when is is not, only converts are accepted.

Please forgive me, but I do not recall Yovel (Jubilee) being back in effect, nor any Arabs going before a beth din to declare formal acceptance of the seven misswoth B'nei No'ah. As a people, they are certain guilty of three of these, if not more.

Hotovely practises Orthodox Judaism and is a self-described "religious rightwinger." At the age of 34, she was the 18th Knesset's youngest member. She is described as the "ideological voice" of the Likud Party.
I think she needs to do a little bit more "practicing" of that Orthodox Judaism of hers. "Rightwinger?" "Ideological voice?"

How does giving citizenship to Yishma'elite enemies, who want to annihilate us, make her a "rightwinger" or an "ideological voice?"

Of course, I agree with the one million But, let's set that aside for the moment

Although screaming and yelling on the surface, I am sure that underneath it all, the "Pseudostinians" will be quite happy to accept Israeli citizenship. It will much easier for them to travel abroad. Then, when the commit terrorist acts in other countries (and they will!), those very countries critical of Israel's current treatment of the "Pseudostinians" will criticize Israel for allowing the anger of "poor, poor Arabs" with "battered wife syndrome" to spill over into their backyards.

So, why are you recommending this "plan" of yours, this plan which has already had various incarnations, and which has already died several times?

The Techiyah Party, Rabbi Benny Elon (Moledeth), and now Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home) have "invented" virtually the same plan. In fact, MK Hotovely even goes farther than Bennett, who has already incurred the wrath of Esser Agaroth's criticism several times.

Why is that? I suspect that this is exactly what the powers that be want. I will assume for now that you are not "in on it," and just a pawn in their schemes. Although, I seriously doubt you appreciate being called a pawn.

For years now, there has been this illusion of an adversarial relationship between those favoring yet another independent Yishma'elite country adjacent to Israel, and those who do not.

Yet, the major force behind the only viable option to those who truly value Jewish life, the emigration of the Yishma'elim from Israel, was assasinated.

Why is that?

I am certainly not suggesting that we will be able to that next week, or even next year. But, it is truly disturbing that politicians feel the need to be silent about this alternative, supposedly for the sake of the greater good which can be accomplished be hanging on to ones seat in the K'nesseth.

Getting back to those one million immigrants who like to arrive within the next decade. Getting them to come, even with money (which I never got, BTW), free Hebrew lessons, and Nefesh b'Nefesh handholding, is already harder than convincing them to pull their own teeth. So, how do you expect them to get on the plane knowing that the newly chosen country's government's idea of protecting them from Arab terror, is to give millions of potential Arab terrorists the same citizenship, rights, and passport.

I guess the "Pseudostinians" would end up receiving some form of their demand for the "right of return" of the second, third, and fourth generations of Arabs of those who saw that the Jews meant business, and ran away.

Thanks a lot, MK Hotovely!

One by one, Likudniks have shown themselves to be disappointments: Begin and Netanyahu land giveways, Danon and Asulin Christian chumminess, and of course, we do not even have to mention Sharon's despicable actions. Even Shamir, the lease worst prime minister of Israel, accepted that ill-fated invitation to Madrid.

And, now you...

Oh, before I forget, Mazal Tov on your marriage! You know, you may want to consider spending more time with Or, now that you're married,...A LOT more time, as in ALL of the time.

But, however you choose to spend your time, please keep your unoriginal and insane ideas to yourself, and out of the K'nesseth.

In fact, how about putting that Orthodox Judaism to good use. Set aside, just for a moment your "practical," political ideas, and spend some searching out some, authentic, Torah ideas.

Happy 90th Birthday, Shimon Peres!

ערב שבת קודש פר' בלק תשע"ג

OMG! Babs came to Shimeleh's Birthday Bash!
Mike Myers as "Linda Richman" on SNL, fawning over Babs
*Creative text inserted by Esser Agaroth (2¢)
"Singer [Streisand] criticizes ultra-Orthodox attitudes to women before scheduled performance at Israeli president's 90th birthday gala."

Shimon Peres's Birthday extravaganza wasn't political, eh?

That was just one of Babs quips, thus far during her tour of Israel. One friend commented that, "See? Every Jewish celebrity likes Israel, deep down inside."

To which I responded, "Barbra Streisand loves Shimon Peres. That's hardly the same thing."

I even heard that Sharon Stone, also in attendance, is involved with a "peace" organization which insists that Arabs recognize Israel's right to exist.

How nice of her! (eyes rolling) But, no, she did not cross nor uncross here legs. Rabbi David Stav, FORMER candidate for Israeli Chief Rabbi apparently made a point of not being on stage with her at the same time (Jameel @ The Muqata). What he was doing there, fawning over Peres in the first place, that's what I would like to know!

Nevertheless, co-dependents may commence slobbering over Sharon Stone now.

So, basically, if you throw in a not-so-hidden political agenda (carving up Eretz Yisra'el, throwing huge pieces to the dogs, and encouraging the assimilation of Jews into Western, secular "progressive," elitist culture). then you have one big Hollywood party, transported to Israel. With or without the cocaine supplied in the second soap dish in the bathrooms, I cannot say.

Of course, that's just gross speculation on my part. And, I am sure that I have absolutely no proof whatsoever that this is the case (eyes turned upwards).

So, much for the a-political, symbolic role of Israel's President! Actually, that went out the window when Peres was first elected to the position. The fact that most every Israeli is in deep denial about it, only makes the situation all the more,...disturbing.

Here is my version of the invitation to such parties. The video is only 2 1/2 min., and is a MUST WATCH!

From South Park "Hell On Earth" S10 E11, 2006

"Loser?" Interesting choice of words, don't you think? Peres has been referred as such more than a handful of times. Actually, it is said that the previous Gerer Rebbe cursed Shimon Peres with the following:
"He will always find water, but never be able to drink it."
Peres then proceeded to lose his next three (or more?) elections. How was the curse was broken? I do not know, but perhaps former President Moshe Katzav, who narrowly beat Peres for the Presidency in 2000, 63-57, and was forced out of office before the end of his term, due to accusations of sexual misconduct and worse, may be able to tell us. Just a suggestion...

Wikipedia: In 2003, on a visit to Italy, he [President Katzav] demanded that the Vatican restore treasures allegedly brought to Rome after the fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD.

I guess he fell on the wrong side, from those who are chummy-chummy with The Vatican (A-hem!), or rather, the right side. But, that couldn't have anything to do with his being deposed, could it? Hmm...

But, I digress...

If you want the best low down on Shimon Peres's Birthday Partée, then read Varda Epstein's account, When You Don't Like The Birthday Boy (Times Of Israel).

...Why don’t I like Shimon Peres, you might ask? It’s this: he has Jewish blood on his hands....

That was just a snippet. But, I am sure you can see why I encourage you read the entire piece.

And what has Shimon Peres been up to lately?

Franciscans Honor Shimon Peres  (Veterans Today)
Israeli President Shimon Peres visited Italy for 3 days in early May, 2013. His visit was a predictable betrayal of the Jews, beginning with his new Franciscan “peace” award:”

Barry Chamish

...The mayor of Assisi, where hundreds of Franciscan monks live, will present its first-ever Medal of Honor for Peace to President Peres for his “unique contribution to dialogue and the cause of peace.” At the ceremony he will receive the Medal of Honor for Peace and will be greeted by “hundreds of Franciscan monks” at the central Basilica, according to an official statement.

Those who know Peres acknowledge his, honestly, psychopathic need for medals and awards, to the point of bribing the Nobel committee for a prize:

Hmm... Oslo Accords? Nobel Peace Prize awarded in Oslo?
A possible connection?
Last week, Yoav Yitzhak, in the wide circulation newspaper Maariv, revealed that Peres gave Terje Larsen, the UN Middle East representative, $100,000 to secure him a Nobel Prize. This week, David Bedein, writing in Makor Rishon, applied the coup de grace. He interviewed a member of the Nobel Prize Committee, Kaare Kristiansen, who not just confirmed the bribe but described Larsen’s pressure on the committee in full detail.

But accepting made up accolades from the Franciscans is utterly insulting to anyone with a modicum of understanding of recent Jewish history....

President Peres receives a gift from Pope Francis I
(avodah zarah blacked out)
The Vatican, April, 2013
...No sooner had Bergoglio taken office, than Peres invited the new pope to visit Israel, asking him to contribute to peace as a spiritual, rather than a political, leader. He’ll be a welcome guest in the Holy Land, as a man of inspiration who can add to the attempt to bring peace in a stormy area,” Peres said.”All people here, without exception, without difference of religion or nationality, will welcome the newly elected pope...” (All people? I guess that doesn't count me, or any other sane Torah-observant, non-co-dependent Jew. Maybe Peres cant show the Poop his new "seat," along with the various other pieces of Jerusalem he now possesses.)

Now why would Peres offer such a deceitful invitation? Could it be because:

Peres Raises ‘World Capital’ Solution for Jerusalem JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Shimon Peres, the head of Israel’s opposition Labor Party, has suggested resolving Israeli-Palestinian conflict over Jerusalem by putting its holy sites under U.N. stewardship, a spokesman said Tuesday.

His plan calls for declaring a holy area of sites sacred to Jews, Christians and Muslims in Jerusalem’s old walled city as a “world capital,” with the U.N. Secretary-General serving as mayor. (What did I tell you? Carving up pieces?)

To those who understand the perfidy of the Israeli President, they recall his royal welcome to the previous Nazi pope:

Israeli President Shimon Peres appears to be hypnotizing Pope Benedict XVI.
Francis’s predecessor Benedict XVI visited the Holy Land and met Peres in 2009. CARDINAL RATZINGER WAS THE “PREFECT OF THE CONGREGATION”, THAT IS, THE CHIEF INQUISITOR.

Ratzinger = Rat + Singer
In a remarkable coverup, the fact that nazi youth member Yosef Ratzinger voluntarily joined the Wehrmacht and willingly risked his life for Hitler, somehow escaped the notice of the truly dumbed-down Israeli people, except for an outraged Dr. Daisy Stern...

My only regret regarding this article is that I cannot post all of it. I highly recommend clicking on the Veterans Today link to read it in its entirety.

Peres with pal, terrorist and murderer of Jews, Arafat
Peres to Claim ‘Overwhelming Majority’ Favor 1949 Border (Arutz 7)
President Peres reportedly plans to tell Arab leaders that most Israelis favor a return to 1949-1967 borders.

If this is not the big fat lie that it certainly appears to be, then someone was playing around with the statistics, and including Arabs in the group he calls "Israelis." Fortunately, one MK appears to have at least a margin of sanity....

Minister Landau: 1967 borders are 'Auschwitz borders' (YNET)
During Cabinet meeting focusing on Kerry's efforts to jump start peace talks, tourism minister repeats Abba Eban's famous statement regarding possible Israeli withdrawal from West Bank. Minister Peretz: Any peace deal would involve land swaps (Is Peretz really still around? Oy!)

Hmm...may more than one MK has the ability to access some sanity. He is also one of the MK's who has bothered to read Israel's Basic Law, including the part about the Israeli President being a predominantly SYMBOLIC role....

Steinitz: Peres is Not a Spokesman for the Government (Arutz 7)
President Peres does not represent the Israeli government's views when he calls to resume peace talks, notes Minister Yuval Steinitz.

MK Moshe Feiglin also appears to be sane. throwing disruptive Arab MK's (Arab MK's?!) from the K'nesseth, without fear of repercussions, and then "showing us the money." That is, the missing money, which turns out, went toward paying for all of the consequences stemming from the Oslo [Death] Accords:

Yesterday, with much pomp and circumstance, we celebrated the birthday of the person responsible more than anyone else for the direct loss of approximately one half trillion shekels from Israel's treasury. That is in addition to much more severe security and political damage. It is important to understand that Israel's political problems can be solved at much less cost than what we are already wasting on Shimon Peres' "peace" industry. When our starting point is that this is our Land, it all becomes easy. People really liked the facts and figures that I provided in my Knesset speech on the costs of the Oslo Accords. Here they are, compiled by analyst Uri Noi:

Cost to Israel of the Oslo Accords:
1. Money transfers to the Palestinian Authority: 86 billion NIS (since Oslo- M.F.) and an additional 4.53 billion NIS annually.

2. General Security Service: 2.85 billion NIS and an additional 1.5 billion NIS annually.

3. Border Police in Judea and Samaria: 13 billion NIS and an additional 0.7 billion NIS annually.

4. IDF in Judea and Samaria: 57 billion NIS and an additional 3 billion annually.

5. Security guards everywhere: 68 billion NIS and an additional 3.57 billion annually.

6. Bypass roads: 20 billion NIS and an additional 1 billion annually.

7. Separation Wall: 4.7 billion NIS, one time expense.

8. Murder victims: 3.5 billion NIS in loss of productivity.

9: Defensive Shield Operation: 14 billion NIS, one time expense.

10. Loss of revenue from tourism: 129 billion NIS and an additional 1 billion annually.

11. Decrease in price of land for housing. Zero in the meantime.
In all, the Oslo Accords cost the Israeli public 423 billion NIS for Judea and Samaria alone. In addition, they continue to cost the tax payers 15.3 billion NIS annually, with no end in sight. Since the Oslo Accords were signed, instead of spending $500,000 on every Arab family that could be convinced to emigrate, we have spent $750,000. This sum is constantly increasing.

My friend Eliyokim Cohen, is also sane. He expresses, on the newly launched website, what I think the [real] majority of Israelis believe:

I am so sick of hearing the word peace...Stop making me puke (Jews News)

Of course, Shimon Peres doesn't really believe in peace; he believes in "piece."
Esser Agaroth (2¢) Definition of Peace:
1. Jews from around the world coming to live in their only true homeland, Israel, striving to live by the Will of the Holy One, Blessed Be He, by His Torah, while the rest of the world also wakes up to belief in the truth, His Torah.

2.This includes goyim who are permitted according to halakhah (Torah Law) would stay; goyim who are not, would not. Torah justice will be exacted against our enemies, regardless of its political-incorrectness, nor how the goyim will respond to it.

3. Being proud to be a Jew will no longer be a crime, nor cause for embarrassment.
Shimon Peres does not believe in anything close to this, quite the opposite in fact.

Ask these people, and their families, about the Oslo [Death] Accords:

Click the image to see the faces of all those killed since Oslo.
And, who could forget this infamous video, after losing re-election as Prime Minister to Binyamin Netanyahu in the 1996?

Sorry, no video. It has mysteriously disappeared. How 'bout that? If anyone finds this clip, please contact me. It is truly a classic!

Anyway, I found the quote on Binyamin Netanyahu's Hebrew Wikipedia page (conspicuously absent from Shimon Peres's Wikipedia page). The incident went down, something like this:
Losing against Netanyahu, Shimon Peres responds to a journalist's question after the elections: 
Journalist: "Who lost?"
Peres: "The Israelis."
Jounalist: "[So], who won?"
Peres: "The Jews"
So, in other words, in Shimon Peres's mind, there is a difference between "Israelis" and "Jews."

I guess that means that there are those who have a long, or even very long, way to go to being indoctrinated into the "carving up Eretz Yisra'el, throwing huge pieces to the dogs, and assimilating into Western, secular, "progressive," elitist culture," and those who have a very short way to go, if they aren't already there.

Some K'nesseth Excitement! איזה התרגשות בכנסת!

י' לחודש תשע"ג

MK Moshe Feiglin
In this video from , MK Moshe Feglin (Likd-Beiteinu) has to throw out Arab MK's for being nasty.

Surprised? They're such Vilde Hayos!

Having Arabs in the K'nesseth in the first place, is one of several reasons its legitimacy is questionable.

I was actually at a lecture the other day at his office. He mentioned to the speakers in advance that he had to leave early, as he was expected back at the K'nesseth.

I wonder if when returning to the K'nesseth, this was the lion's den he was about to enter.


Then, later in the week, MK Feiglin announced that he found some missing money, a whopping 453 Billion sheqqels! Where did it all disappear to? The Israeli Government spent it as a result of the Oslo [Death] Accords.

(Tip Credit: Life In Israel)

Click for the list of Oslo Death Accords victims.

These Jews spend one hell of a lot more than 453 Billion sheqqels; they gave up their lives.

The New Archbishop of Canterbury Had a Jewish Father

י' לחודש הרביעי תשע"ג

Big deal.

Times Of Israel: The First ‘Jewish’ Archbishop of Canterbury Heads to Israel
Justin Welby’s grandfather fled from Germany; his father bootlegged alcohol, knew JFK and was engaged to Vanessa Redgrave; he worked in the oil industry before feeling a call to God after his daughter’s death in a car crash

(primary avodah zarah blacked-out.)
LONDON – The father of the new Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, kept many secrets. Gavin Welby never told his son that he had an estranged older sister, or a first wife. He never told him his real birthdate, or the name under which he was born. And, it has emerged, he never told him that he was born a Jew.

“He told lots of stories but one was never really sure what was true and what wasn’t,” Archbishop Justin told The Daily Telegraph, which broke the news to him just days after he was appointed head of the Church of England in November 2012. “He drank quite heavily and, you know, he would say things sometimes when he had been drinking and you did not know what was true or not.

“He wouldn’t talk about his family at all,” he said.

Naturally, the bombshell that the leader of 80 million Anglicans worldwide is a half-Jew has captured the imagination of Britain’s Jewish community. The Anglican Church, by contrast, has so far reacted apathetically, perhaps inured by previous examples of Jewish-Christian clerics such as Giles Fraser, until 2011 Canon Chancellor of St Paul’s Cathedral, who had a Jewish father; and Hugh Montefiore, a well-known bishop in the 1970s and ‘80s, who converted from Judaism in his teens.

Why did this even warrant an article?

Fawning over goyim, seeing what galuthi Jews can get from them, in order to become even more comfortable in galuth.

That's all this was about.


Oh, my! So, he's a REALLY important goy. (eyes rolling)

Listen, Justin, yellow is NOT, I repeat NOT, your color. Please do something about that, would you? Or else I'll have to take you and the entire Anglican Church to the World Court in The Hague, for "Crimes Against Humanity's Fashion."

It certainly doesn't seem to have anything else better to do.

Oh, and I suppose, now I will get hate e-mails from sniveling Jews in galuth, chastising me for insulting his royal goyness, and, first and formost, for daring to use the word "goy."

Bring it on!

"Israeli" Arabs in the News

Arutz 7: Arabs Attack Home in Beit Shemesh, Part of Ongoing Harassment
A Beit Shemesh family was forced to cower as Arabs attacked their home with rocks. It's just the tip of the iceberg, a resident said

David Lev, June 16, 2013

"The Municipality of Beth Shemsh"
"My city; the municipality for me"
Rock throwing is not a problem faced just by Jews in Judea and Samaria, or even in Jerusalem. It's now a problem in many cities throughout the country, with the latest incident occurring in Beit Shemesh. According to a resident who spoke to Arutz Sheva, Arabs attacked his family's home with a barrage of stones Friday afternoon, causing them to take cover for fear of a potential “lynch.”

“Arabs threw three good-sized stones into our living room on Friday afternoon,” said the resident of an older neighborhood in Beit Shemesh. “One of them hit a pergola on our porch as our children were playing under it.” (cont.)

Arutz7: Jerusalem: Arab Youths Attack Jewish Children
Two Arab youths attacked 10 children, burned holy books and the Jewish flag.

Gil Ronen, June 17, 2013

Two Arab youths attacked a group of Jewish children in Jerusalem's Homat Shmuel (Har Homa) neighborhood.

About ten Jewish children established a play encampment near the neighborhood, where they played and studied Torah after school.

Sunday afternoon, two Arab youths arrived on the scene, attacked the children, causing bruises to two of them. They tried to throw one of the children into the wadi but failed.

The Jewish children ran off and the Arabs burned their encampment, including holy books, and an Israel flag. They also threw a bicycle that one of the children had received for his bar mitzva into the flames.

The boy whose bicycle was burned told Arutz Sheva, “We are not afraid and we hope the police will take care of them. We will rebuild the encampment.”

A member of the Homat Shmuel directorate said that he expects police to be “more assertive” in cases like these.

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Odd that these two incidents occurred within a couple of days of each other. 

How many like attacks are not reported? How many of the reported attacks actually make the news?

The State of Israel LOVES statistics, and being "creative" with them. The State likes to make a distinction between "acts of terror" and so-called "criminal acts," just like it likes to make a distinction between Pseudostinian ("Palestinian") Yishma'elim (Arabs) and "Israeli" ones.

If a Jew is terrified, it is an "act of terror;" if a crime is committed, it is a "criminal act."

It seems to me that these two distinctions are actually very much intertwined. Can one really happen without the other?

Is there really a distinction between a Pseudostinian Yishma'eli with an orange colored identity card and an "Israeli" Yishma'eli with a blue colored identity card?

There are Pseudostinian Yishma'elim who want to annihilate us, as well as Pseudostinians who would like to stay out of the way, if not leave the area all together.

There are "Israeli" Yishma'elim who want to annihilate us, as well as "Israeli" Yishma'elim who would like to stay out of the way, if not leave the area all together.

The State of Israel would like us to believe that there is a distinction. When up for re-election, prime ministers and members of K'nesseth can cite their "statistics." "Crime" may be up, but "terror" is down.

Seriously, do they really think that we are that stupid? Are YOU that stupid?

The kids from Har Homah (Homath Shmu'el) would like to rebuild. Great attitude.

But, will their parents help them? Or will they just expect the police to be "more assertive?" Or, will their parents try to stop them? 

Will the police arrest them?

I suppose we will never know the answer to these questions, unless we are somehow able to dig through the State of Israel's statistics.

MK Naftali Bennet: "No Palestinian State." I'll believe it when I see it.

י' לחודש הרביעי תשע"ג
Arutz 7: Bennett: Palestinian State? Get Over It

Minister Naftali Bennet
Bayit Yehudi head, Economics Minister Naftali Bennett, said Monday that the idea of establishing a Palestinian state has reached a dead end and should be forsaken.

"Never in the history of Israel has so much energy been invested in something so pointless,” Bennett said at a conference on the Jewish settlers in Judea and Samaria and their depiction in the media.

Regarding the idea of a Palestinian state, he said, "We need to go from a situation in which we try to convince people that it is a bad idea, to one in which this idea is behind us. Anyone who travels around Judea and Samaria knows that what they say in the hallways of Oslo and Annapolis is detached from reality.”

"There are 400,000 Israeli residents of Judea and Samaria, and another 250,000 in eastern Jerusalem,” he noted. “More than 10% of the residents of Israel live in what is called the Green Line. The attempt to establish a Palestinian state inside our land is over.

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
"The idea of establishing a Palestinian state has reached a dead end and should be forsaken."

Oh, really?

What the above Arutz 7 report does not mention is that these statements of Minister Bennett were made at today's YeSh"A Leadership Conference.

What was also not reported was the following additional statement made by Minister Bennett. Fortunately, our man Yosef Stein was there to report on it:
If you were hit with shrapnel, and it was embedded inside you, and you had two choices for treatment, to risk having it removed, with only ??% chance of success of surviving the surgery, or leaving it inside of you, but not being 100%, which would you choose? (translated from Hebrew and paraphrased)
In other words, from what I gather, we have two choices, attempt to remove the Arabs (shrapnel) from our body (Judea and Samaria, Israel) with less than 100% chance of success, or to leave the Arabs where they are, and just deal with them being there.

Apparently, Bennett received criticism for using this metaphor. However, since Arabs have been described previously by some politicians as a "cancer needing to be excised," I have no doubt that Bennett will survive.

So, Minister Bennett simultaneously sees that the last chance for a Pseudostinian State has passed, yet also seems to believe in the virtual impossibility of removing the shrapnel (Arabs),...even though the shrapnel is not just sitting their but 

That is a concession he is willing to accept? Or, he believes that his plan to annex parts of Yehudah and the Shomron (Judea and Samaria) grant citizenship to those Arabs residing in those parts.

Bennett's Plan vs. Arafat's Plan
I don't see much of a difference. Do you?
Well, I guess he certainly not concerned with accusations from the "international community" that Israel is an apartheid state. Well, neither am I. But, somehow, I think that the Bennett is concerned about such things.

Been there, done that. 

It was the proposal of the Techiyah Party, which included MK's formerly of the Likud and National Religious Parties, such as Geulah Cohen, Hanan Porat, and Yuval Neiman.

The Techiyah Party also happened to be the primary force behind the banning of Rabbi Me'ir Kahane hy"d, and his Kakh Party from the K'nesseth.

But, I digress....

Minister. Bennett, pray tell, what is this?

Set aside for a moment, only a moment, that the Bennett Plan looks suspiciously like the Arafat Plan, and let us point out a few things about Yishma'elim (Arabs), which Bennett has failed to consider:

1. The Bennett Plan will create a defacto Pseudostinian State, which he himself, claims that the creation of which has missed its window of opportunity.

2. Bennett also appears to have forgotten his history lessons, both modern and ancient. The
Yishma'elim will undoubtedly scream and yell about quite probably picking up on the "apartheid" buzz word which has been circulating around for years now. Yet, in private, the Bennett autonomy plan will be hailed as a victory.

Many of them are patient, and are quite willing to accept such apparently small victories, "chipping away" Israeli control, a little bit at a time.

PA "President" Mahmud Abbas (Abu Mazen) and his vision of "Palestine"
The Yishma'elim operate by saying one thing to us, another to the UN, and all the while secretly discussing what they really believe and desire amongst themselves. It used to be in English vs. Arabic. But, they have become so brazen, having successfully pulled the wool over the eyes of the West, including many Jews, that they need not concern themselves with what gets publicized, and what does not.

It is still much clearer to us what the Yishma'elim want, than it is to the rest of the world as to what Jews want. What have will be doing to demonstrate our desires for maintaining sovereignty over our Homeland? Giving pieces of it away? Allowing outside forces determine how and when we should (or should not) defend it?

That does not sound in the least bit logical to me. In fact, it sounds quite insane, not to mention self-destructive.

I am ALL for talking about, and responding to, the "reality on the ground." However, what I am unwilling to do, what I refuse to do, is to stop talking about the ideal and correct situation in which Jews should exist, whether we are currently capable of achieving it or not.

Some Jews sit around and talking about waiting for Mashi'ah to come, and take care of everything for us, including bringing of all Jews back to Israel, their (our) only true Homeland, rebuilding of the Miqdash (Temple), reestablishing the Sanhedrin, and, of course, ascending the throne, and defeating our enemies,... once and for all.

But, even these Jews never cease talking about the ideal, how things SHOULD be, in other words, the leKhathillah manner in which Jews are supposed to live.

Galuth (exile), physical AND spiritual galuth, is the bedi'avad manner in which most Jews currently exist, and which is not our natural state of existence.

Minister Bennett is free to be a realist. He is free to play politics, in his attempts to "get the best deal he can" for us.

Who is "occupying" whom?
(Click to Enlarge)
Yet, there is no excuse for ceasing discussion about what is supposed to be, that Eretz Yisra'el, ALL of Eretz Yisra'el, belongs to us, AND only those non-Jews permitted to live here al pi halakhah,...are permitted to live here.

Perhaps he believes that such discussion, such talk, would hinder his efforts to "get the best deal he can" for us.

That does not sound terribly "Religious Zionist" to me. Actually, it sounds like hoser emunah (lack of faith).

If that is what "being realistic" means, then I do not want to have any part of it.

Rabbi Meir Kahane would tell us to say the truth, and to do the truth, which is Torah, and whatever happens as a result was min HaShamayim (Heavenly Will).

And for beliefs like these, he was branded an "extremist."

Well, then, if believing that the Torah is an integral part of EVERY aspect of a Jew's life, and not just "shabbos and kashrus shailos," if believing that following this very Torah takes precedence over following those laws of the State of Israel which are in conflict with the Torah, then I plead guilty.

Of course, I prefer the term "Real Religious Zionist."

What Naftali Bennett prefers, I am still trying to figure out.

But, so far, and especially after his speech today, I am not optimistic.

President Peres's Pretty Pope and Princess Pictures!

ט' לחודש הרביעי תשע"ג

These photos, screenshots from the Israeli President's Official YouTube Channel (source video below) show what is important to Shimon Peres: Goyim, in particular, his Illuminati pals.

We are allowed to demonstrate the bringing of the Bikkurim (the first fruits) to the secular Israeli President, his buddy, a high priest of avodah zarah and a chieftain of Edom, and demonstrate it to the Israeli Prime Minister. But, we are forbidden by the above mentioned individuals from performing the misswah properly, by bringing them to Har HaBayith (the Temple Mount) on Shavu'oth, and presenting them to a proper priest, a Kohain.

President Peres explains "something" to the former Pope Benedict XVI (Josef Ratzinger).
Ratzinger = Rat Singer

And, speaking of pedophilia Pope-phillia, here is President Peres with the new high priest of avodah zarah and a chieftain of Edom.
President Peres receives a gift from Pope Francis
(avodah zarah blacked out)
Vatican, April, 2013
President Peres was one of the first celebrities Heads of State to be received by the newly elected Pope Francis. President Peres presented what appeared to be a Tana"kh (a real Bible) in Hebrew, if all of the pieces of Israel thrown to the Vatican wasn't enough.

In return, Peres received some old coins, as if giving back the Temple vessels was too much to ask? Does the Israel President get to keep those coins, or do they go into a depository, which theoretically belongs to Israeli citizens? Hmm...

Sure, Queen Elizabeth II is no longer a "princess," but "queen" doen't start with the letter "p," does it?

Her Majesty does not appear to be terribly concerned that she is no longer welcome at the home of at least one resident (probably more) of K'far Tapu'ah, in the Shomron (Samaria).

What's this award for? Loyalty to the New World Order cause?
President Peres receives, yet, another award, for something,...I suppose being the "symbol" of Israel.

And, what you have all been waiting for, President Peres's wrap, techno, house, dance mix video!

Seriously, though. Is this President Peres dude for real?

I guess he risen to such a high level (of gaivah), that either doesn't care, is careless, or just loves to throw it into all of our faces.

He does whatever he wants, and expects the rest of us to do the same,...what HE wants.

On Gay Marriage

ח' לחודש הרביעי תשע"ג

Tomorrow, the U. S. Supreme Court is expected to deliver rulings on two cases related to gay marriage, Perry v. Hollingsworth and Windsor v. United States.

In the Perry case, the court will decide whether California voters discriminated against gay people when they voted to ban same-sex marriage, and in Windsor, the court will decide whether the federal Defense of Marriage Act--which limits all federal marriage benefits to opposite sex couples--violates the constitutional rights of same-sex couples (Yahoo News).

On many occasions, I have expressed my apathy about what goes on in the U. S. I couldn't care less, save for the Jews who are stuck there, financially, emotionally, and, of course, spiritually.

Jews, the U. S. is not your home; Israel is. Get out already.

So, why am I writing about this issue? My concern is twofold.

1) Why the heck are Jews, even some so-called Orthodox Jews, supportive of same-gender marriage in the U. S.?
Why am I so concerned about what the goyim do? Well, I'm not. Even though it is assur (forbidden) for even non-Jews to enter same gender marriage contracts, I sincerely doubt that they, save for some religious Christians and Muslims, or even you, would be in the least bit interested in hearing about any halakhic (Jewish legal) which indicate this. (A-hem!...Babylonian Talmud, Hullin 92)

Nonetheless, those so-called Orthodox Jewish supporters have NO business supporting gay marriage. It's assur. Can't they at least be silent on this issue?

But, that does remind me.

"Light Unto The Nations" Cheerleaders
Where ARE our "Light Unto The Nations" Cheerleaders?? Why aren't they running around talking to the goyim (like they think they are supposed to) about this prohibition? being a "light unto the nations?" Why aren't they saying anything to the goyim in the U. S. about this prohibition?? Are talking about this issue at all, with anyone other than their Christian money bags friends, who don't need convincing anyway?

2) Not wanting to be outdone by the goyim, will Israel's government be next to confront this issue?
I was sent the following survey results. Who knows how valid or reliable this study is? Nonetheless, it is a clear indicator to me that the issue of gay marriage is being discussed, and some individuals and organizations, with anti-Torah, Erev Rav backing, are preparing to do battle here in Israel.

"Should same gender marriage be allowed in Israel?"
55.0%-Yes, 38.4%-No, 6.6%-No Opinion
From Mako-Gay Community News in Israel

This survey also makes the claim that  9% of those surveyed in support of gay marriage in Israel, were "religious," if not "Haredi."

Gee. If that's true, I wonder just what Mako considers "religious," and I also wonder exactly how the survey questions were phrased to those "Haredim."  Hmm...

Jewish Libertarian and Anarchist friends and acquaintances, sorry, I know you don't like being told what to do, but it's assur. Nothing I can do about that.

Nope. It is not assur based on that pasuq branded in your heads….
יח,כב  וְאֶת-זָכָר--לֹא תִשְׁכַּב, מִשְׁכְּבֵי אִשָּׁה: תּוֹעֵבָה, הִוא.

Leviticus 18:22 You will not lie with mank, as with womankind; it is abomination.
Rather, it is assur, as we learn out from this pasuq:
ויקרא יח,ג  כְּמַעֲשֵׂה אֶרֶץ-מִצְרַיִם אֲשֶׁר יְשַׁבְתֶּם-בָּהּ, לֹא תַעֲשׂוּ; וּכְמַעֲשֵׂה אֶרֶץ-כְּנַעַן אֲשֶׁר אֲנִי מֵבִיא אֶתְכֶם שָׁמָּה, לֹא תַעֲשׂוּ, וּבְחֻקֹּתֵיהֶם, לֹא תֵלֵכוּ.  

Leviticus 18:3 After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein you dwelt, you shall not do; and after the doings of the land of Canaan, to where I bring you, you shall not do; neither shall you walk in their statutes.
…and one of those “deeds” was marriage contracts between two men, among other things.

The ensuing battle in Israel (and there WILL be some kind of battle) will be just like that taking place in the U. S., designed to keep the people divided, and focused on a side issue, while the Powers That Be (…and I’m not talking about the K’nesseth) maintains control over the masses, and continues to plot and plan undisturbed.

The Erev Rav controlled government has already succeeded in brainwashing convincing the masses that “progressive” and “enlightened” (ie. assimilation into Western-exile minded culture) are ideals, and that they include this....

Then, why can't I have this?

Because THIS is considered, by those calling the shots, as “primitive” and “oppressive.” (eyes rolling)

And, I will tell you why, too. Because the secular, Ashkenazi, Western-assimilationist, anti-Torah, "Wannabe Goyim," Labor Zionists say so.

Apparently, the battle has just begun!

Give MK Boaz Toporovsky (Yesh Atid) A Break!

ערב שבת קודש פר' חקת תשע"ג

YNET: New MK falls asleep in office, wakes up online
MK Toporovsky, young new MK from Yesh Atid, causes stir after uploading suggestive picture of himself online where he's seen shirtless in his office, after plenum deliberation continues into early hours

June 12, 2013

MK Boaz Toporovsky (Yesh Atid) caused a stir both online and offline after he posted what some have called an intimate and suggestive picture of himself sleeping shirtless in his office at the end of long plenum session.

The incident joins a long line of "unparliamentary" activities and has irked Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein who called on MKs to protect the Knesset's honor.

MK Toporovsky: "From now on, I'll sleep in a suit."

In it, he can be seen lying on what appears to be the couch in his office, giving the camera a "flirtatious" stare and using his shirt as a blanket.

"4:51 am, going to sleep in my office in the Knesset," he wrote alongside the picture. "This is the first time I am sleeping in my office; luckily there is a shower in the office."

Within a number of hours the picture had gone viral, inspiring a slew of internet memes poking fun at Toporovsky, the picture, and specifically his stare.

"I don’t always take semi-nude pictures of myself while I'm in the Knesset" one of the memes read, "but when I do, I make sure my eyes are deep and dreamy."

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
For Goodness Sakes! Give MK Boaz Toporovsky A Break!

K'nesseth Speaker Yuli Edelstein "called on MKs to protect the Knesset's honor." and yet, last Sukkoth, K'nesseth Speaker Yuli Edelstein spoke at a conference of Christian missionaries in the Jerusalem, even after being warned by former Jerusalem City Councilmember Mina Fenton (NRP). How is that protecting the K'nesseth's honor? In fact, it sounds pretty "unparliamentary" to me. Don't you think?

It was reported that MK Toporovsky later added, "From now on, I'll sleep in a suit."

I am certain that if I were to take a look at a list of MK Toporovsky's stances, I would take issue with most of them. In fact, I am pretty disgusted by most all of his colleagues in his Yesh Atid Party, Dov Lipman, Ruth Calderon, and Yair Lapid himself.

In contrast to those folks, MK Toporovsky is an asset. Goverment representatives of the people are supposed be just that, government representatives of the people. And MK Toporovsky represents the people.

He is real. He takes his shirt off to go to sleep on his couch, just like all other, hard-working Israelis do.

AND like most other hard-working Israeli's, he has a sense of humor. Thank The Almighty, we at least have one Member of K'nesseth, who may take his issues seriously, as evidenced by his all night K'nesseth session debate, but does not feel compelled to take himself so seriously.

I can think of at think 100 other Members of K'nesseth you could take a less from this.

OK. So, maybe not every hard-working Israeli posts about it on his or her facebook page. Nonetheless, the way I see it is that, for better or worse, he keeps in touch with his constituents, and he reminds them (us) that he is not above us, nor any better or worse than any of us.

He IS just one of us.

MK Toporovsky, I want to thank you, for being real, and for not forgetting that you're just like any other Israeli.

You're just one of us.

I posted the following on MK Toporovsky's Facebook Page, in addition to this post, more or less a summary in Hebrew of the above:

ח"כ טופורובבסקי,
אני לא מסכים איתך רוב הזמין, אבל אחרי פרשת "שינה בספה" אני יודע שאתה ישראלי אמיתי שעובד קשה מאוד בשבילינו! אתה הראת לכל העולם שאתה לא נמצא ברמה יותר גבוה מישראלים אחרים. אלא אתה ממש אחד ממנו! אתה האח האמיתי שלנו (אפילו כשלא מסכימים.) :-)
