Israel's Tiananmen Square ends differently

in Jerusalem a protest near the train tracks of the Jerusalem Light Rail led to someone getting run over by the train (only lightly injured).

The incident was caught on camera...


the protest was against the drafting of Haredim to the IDF..

those damn Zionists! (jk)
even in China, in Tiananmen Square, back in 1989, the tank train didn't run over the protester that stood in its way.

Interesting Psak: riding in a car on Shabbos

According to a report in the Jerusalem Post, Ivanka and her husband, Orthodox Jews who "rest" on Shabbos, have received an interesting psak that would allow them to travel by car this Friday night after the inauguration of Ivanka's father, Donald J Trump, as President of the United States of America.

According to Mark Zell, chair of the Republican Party in Israel, who described the situation on Radio Kol Berama this morning, the psak takes into account safety issues, and compared this to a situation of pikuch nefesh.

No mention (in the article) of any details beyond that, or the name of the rabbi who issued the psak, leaves me wanting for more information. Surely if it were pikuach nefesh this would be allowed, no questions asked. I wonder how this is determined to be the case. Every time the daughter of the president wants to go anywhere outside her own house - does it get the status of pikuach nefesh? Is there a credible threat right now that they took into account while in a regular situation the answer might have been different?.

Netanyahu and the Eida askan

Riddle:
What does PM Benjamin Netanyahu have in common with a senior leader of the Eida Hachareidis?

Answer:
they both said [the police] won't find anything because there isn't anything...

Police raided Eida offices in Mea Shearim today looking for Shimon Sisa's office. Sisa is being investigated for issuing fraudulent psychiatric papers to get youth exempted from the army. The police met violent opposition and quickly left the area after not locating his office.
source: Kikar


Netanyahu said the same about the investigation into his affairs with Noni Moses that are suspected of being breach of trust and bribery and perhaps other crimes.

What do they say? The prisons are filled up with people who claim to be innocent...

Quote of the Day

The forces of the Left in the media and the army are trying to erase from the public awareness the heroism of the citizen that killed the terrorist in Armon Hanatziv, because the citizen acted like a man - a fact that is in opposition to the narrative that the Left in the media are trying to instill into the public. On the other side of this, the female officer who shot at the terrorist is now being praised as a hero, for the same reason. When Hamas watches the film, they get the impression that IDF soldiers ran away like women from the scene of the attack.

  -- Moshe Feiglin, director of Zehut

Feiglin apologized shortly after for using that expression - ran away like women - and said "I stress again and again we have nothing against women and are not in favor of men, but this is the way it is viewed in the eyes of our enemy, that the soldiers ran away like women...

not good. not cool.

Gerrer Hassidim thank God for the State of Israel

There has been a fight going on in the southern city of Arad between the secular residents and the community of Gur chassidim. Without getting into the details, because from afar it just seems to be the standard fight of secular residents not wanting the growing charedi community to continue moving in, the basic animosity has now turned into some fight being waged on signs around the city.

The Gerrer chassidim, not using social media or other digital forms of communal discussion, have been posting signs up around town to encourage a more religious environment - signs that say things like "In Arad people eat kosher" and "the children of Arad wear kippot".

the secular residents turned to the courts to have the signs removed. The Gur representatives argued that these are political signs in nature and they have their political discussion via wall signs rather than using social media. The judge sympathized with the argument, but chose to reject it anyway and order the signs to be removed. An appeal to the Supreme Court by Gur to have the signs allowed failed and the municipality of Arad was given legal permission to remove the signs.


This is just a stage in the fight, as Gur says their coming signs will have clear political messages and will reveal clearly what is actually happening in Arad, who is stealing from city coffers, who is mistreating the children of Arad, and more.

In the meantime, the Gerrer chassidim put up one last sign and left  it up for just a brief amount of time before removing it due to removal orders,

This last sign is the interesting one in this fight..


The sign reads "We thank God every single day, and not just on Yom Haatzmaut, for giving us the State of Israel"

source: Behadrei

Revolutionary.

forgetting about the fight.... they publicly declare thanking God for the State of Israel. They did not say "eretz yisrael", but "medinat yisrael". they used blue and white colors on the sign with a picture of the flag of Israel.

I dont know if it signifies anything specific, and it might just have been a strategic move and a tactic in their plan, but I find it surprising and interesting that they would make such a Zionistic statement...

Headline of the Day

70 nations gather in Paris to discuss two-state solution, Israel and Palestinian Authority skip


  -- Russia Today (with many similar headlines gracing the front of many other news media sites)

1. without saying anything many others are not also noticing and feeling, the event of 70 nations of the world gathering together to oppose Israel and its existence in Jerusalem has a prophetic feel to it

2. What kind of peace process can be dscussed with any value without the participation of the Israelis and the Palestinians...
