I posted earlier - a simple post, complimentary to Shmarya and wishing him well. It has vanished. I guess time will tell whether that sort of thing is a glitch with Typepad or whether new broom is sweeping extremely clean. While I'm glad to see the blog will remain up and the old material available at least for awhile I wonder what's going on.

It's been quite a ride on this site for the past several years. You will be missed. Should be interesting to see how the site changes when run by a committee of the faithful. It'll have less bite, I fear. All the best in your new endeavors.

"religion is kindness, understanding, communication, etc. but what do i know?" i think you know otherwise, Ruthie. It should be that but it isn't for the most part and being kind and understanding and open to communication doesn't require adherence to any given religion's dogma.

"why so much hatred against Lubavitch?" Because they're a corrupt and amoral organization as any thinking person realizes. They deserve to be despised.

This calls for new governance however I have my doubts about the appropriateness and likely outcome of having the Australian Federal government take it over, given their nasty human rights record and their continued imprisonment of little children in the refugee concentration camps on Nauru. Better the decent Jews of Australia form an entity to govern Yeshivah Centre.

But it's not illegal! They're goyim! We're entitled!

"Any thinking person who can face facts objectivity knows that Israeli fundamentalists in power will be much like Islamic fundamentalists or medevil Europeans used to be." Exactly. The mindset is the same; only the dogma differs. Any non-Hared who makes Aliyah had best be coming from a truly dangerous and hellish place; otherwise why go and be treated like a second-class citizen?

I think the NRA has a pamphlet out on this subject.

"Come on bewhiskered. Who hasn't put their hand in the pocket for a crafty scratch of their balls and accidentally discharged their weapon?" Gun in left pocket, always scratch with the right hand. Simple, Easy. Safe.

Crazy Boy: All else aside: when did the good Lord let it be known that the rules of worship at the Wall were to be made exclusively by and to the taste and prejudices of the most extreme elements in Judaism? " The woman of the wall no very very well that they are not welcome over there if if they plan to put on ,tefilin,? Or singing,? Or reading from the Torah,?" Really? Do they? They'd be welcome to do so as far as I'm concerned and I'm as much a member of the Jewish people as any Haredi. Who died and left the black hats in charge? This is nothing but nasty Israeli politics being played, trading favors for votes. Simple as that. Maybe we should be saying, on behalf of all non-Haredim, that the black hats are unwelcome there.

"That is the favorite haredi trick in Israel - hundreds of black crows in their Polish get-up milling in the streets, shouting "Gevalt!" and "Nazis", burning trash cans, attacking people, and generally being a pain in the ass." You forgot the ritual tossing of soiled diapers.

"a railway station with signage in Russian and English.." Oops. Russian and Yiddish, as Mark S. noted. Sorry.

Willful ignorance is right. "[I'm] not familiar with the exact historical details regarding [US Senator] Joseph McCarthy, but you see who is coming out against him currently and you can't help but be in his favor," The solution to your intellectual laziness and ignorance, sir, is called Wikipedia. Meanwhile here in the US the worst of the worst - Trump, abetted by his groupie Palin and Cruz, are rising to the top. As they say the biggest chunks always float to the top of the bowl. Let's hope someone gives 'em a good flush before too much longer.

"Pol Pot tried it and devastated his country." Yeah but the Haredim think they can do a better job. Wait till one of their demented elder gedolim starts talking about rounding up and killing non-Haredim. I suspect it'll be just a matter of time till one feels comfortable enough with their position to suggest it. Then the end will come for him and his.

Ethan - More likely it will fragment with some getting crazier and others holding steady or backing off, as has happened with Judaism and with Protestant Christianity. What starts out as a homogenous group breaks into sects and away we go.

Right near North Korea. One cult or another. A marriage made in heaven. Birobidzhan had and for all I know still has a railway station with signage in Russian and English. The link to the image online is http://sheldonkirshner.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Birobidzhan-railway-station-today2.jpg Shmarya - you should add this pic to this post.

Never mind all this crap about the Lichtensteins. What's egregious here is that the black hats are fighting against enforcement of fire codes in their warrens of buildings because bringing them up to code would cost them money. Clearly code enforcement is anti-semitism, isn't that right trolls? Poetic justice would be for one these firetraps to burn down and for all the kids to escape yet for the male leadership of the cult responsible for the failure to adhere to code to be trapped inside and incinerated.

"distant ancestors were African primates" Really? Heads of African religious organizations? Oh, never mind. I see. Not so distant, though.

Press's wife is jewish? Fascinating. I agree- let him clean out the stable that Rockland County has become, along with that other festering sore, KJ, and the one that seems to be developing in Bloomingburg. The towns in Rockland used to be lovely - now they've become Haredi warrens to be avoided by all who don't wear black hats. Sad.

British kids? Oy, nebach - they're not British kids they're Jews! These people marginalize themselves. Their entire zeitgeist involves insularity, apartness, arrogance, a sense of entitlement. The host society for these people - no matter what the country - is looked at in about the same way that pathogenic bacteria regard the culture medium in the petri dish in which they grow: a source of nutrition (and benefits) but certainly not something into which to integrate. Reproduce like blazes, drain the nutrients, infect another host environment.
