Haredis in Beit Shemesh don't want streets named after important women, but compromise on last names

The Haredi councilmen in the Beit Shemesh city hall have a problem with naming streets after women, but compromised. That doesn't mean what they did isn't cause for offense, and here's why:
Beit Shemesh lawmakers convened on Wednesday to name streets in the city's new Neveh Shamir neighborhood and decided that streets dedicated to prominent female figures in Israeli and Zionist history, such as Sarah Aaronsohn and Anne Frank, will only be referred to by their last names, to appease the area's ultra-Orthodox residents.

Based on the original planning, the streets in the new neighborhood were supposed to be dedicated to ultra-Orthodox individuals, but that was later changed to prominent Zionist figures, men and women alike.

In a compromise with the city's Haredi councilmen, who hold a majority in the municipality's street-naming committee, it was decided that no first names would appear on any street signs. The full names will, however, appear in smaller print at the bottom of the street sign.
Opposing the naming of a street after a figure as important as Anne Frank, who perished in the Holocaust, is colossally perverse, and the notion they would oppose even her first name on a signpost is still obscene. If the first names will appear, that's good, but putting them only in small print is still wrong, and belittles Anne's memory and history. This should decidedly be contested in court.

Has one of the defendants in the Charlie Hebdo trial fallen ill from Coronavirus?

If the following news is any suggestion, one of the criminals in the recent tragedy from 5 years ago may be getting something he deserves:
The trial in Paris over the January 2015 Islamist attacks on the Charlie Hebdo satirical weekly and a Jewish supermarket was suspended for one day Thursday after one of the accused fell ill in the box.

The defendant, Nezar Mickael Pastor Alwatik, will undergo diagnostic tests including for Covid-19, his lawyer said.
If he got infected, then again, he deserves it for collaborating with jihad monsters.

Britain still makes casual sex illegal during Covid19 pandemic

Breitbart notes that while the UK has stated non-cohabiting couples can practice sex again without restrictions, their stance on casual sex potentially contradicts that:
It is no longer prohibited under British coronavirus laws to have sex with someone you do not live with as long as you are in an “established relationship” — but recently-updated guidelines suggest that casual sex is still forbidden.
Read more of it, but for now, it's decidedly clear they're still making things very difficult for all the wrong reasons for everyone in the UK to have sex, and even to reproduce. But then, what more could you expect when the inmates run the asylum?

What university students think about Planned Parenthood after learning of its founder's racism

Campus Reform tells of a rather unsurprising double-standard some university students had after learning what kind of a monster Margeret Sanger really was when she first founded Planned Parenthood:
Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger reportedly once said, “we do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population." While some dispute that Sanger said these words, the move by Planned Parenthood of Greater New York to disassociate itself from Sanger's name provides further evidence of Sanger's racist tendencies. [...]

Campus Reform also asked students if the United States should be funding an organization whose founder said this.

“People as individuals need to really decide for themselves if they want to support it or not. But I know I definitely wouldn’t if the f***ing leader said that,” one student said.

Campus Reform then told students who actually said the quote.

“It makes me feel nauseous.”

One student admitted she was “actually surprised. Planned Parenthood is usually a very liberal and inclusive organization.”

Despite the former claims that the quote was “racist,” students were still willing to support Planned Parenthood.

One student said that “as long as the organization itself isn’t being racist, we can’t really go after the organization itself for it.”

“I still think Planned Parenthood is important and needs to like continue on,” one student concluded.
So despite allegedly recognizing Sanger was a racist, they still believe PP just has to exist, and that it's whole purpose of abortion and such is a pinnacle of invention, one that should serve as a role model. Do they also believe the Ford motor company's vehicles should continue being bought, despite Henry Ford's own sordid past with supporting nazism? Ugh. This is little more than idol worship of the worst kind. And all courtesy of a horrible leftist indoctrination system that's damaged whole generations of college students. The worst part has to be that these students think it's virtually impossible for the organization to still have racists working in it. And that type of ignorance is truly awful.

The Rowling demonization in the UK continues

Giulio Meotti's written on Israel National News about the transsexual movement's continuing villification of Harry Potter author J.K Rowling, now basing their hatred on that she made a transvestite into a villain in one of her new books:
Going into an English-language bookstore, it is impossible to avoid an essay on men who hate women even unintentionally. Laura Bates' “Men Who Hate Women”, Peggy Orenstein's “Boys & Sex” and Kate Manne's “Entitled: How Male Privilege Hurts Women”, to name just the last three releases. It is the usual refrain of the “oppression of patriarchal masculinity.”

True, there had already been “Dressed to Kill” by Brian de Palma, a famous thriller about a murderer disguised as a woman. But that was 1989. Then another blockbuster, “The Silence of the Lambs”, where the murder is another trans wannabe. And in 1960, Alfred Hitchcock shocked us with "Psycho". But we are in other times, so much so that three years ago, a remake of Psycho had taken off Norman Bates' female clothes for fear of being accused of "transphobia".

If that wasn't enough, J.K. Rowling of "Harry Potter" fame is involved in a new controversy that sees her accused of "transphobia". Her murder is not perpetrated in a shower, but in the social media, and not by a knife, but a reeking stinkbomb Here is a woman, a famous writer, with left-wing credentials in the right place (a past in Amnesty, feminism, anti-Trumpism), who - heaven forfend - defends women from men who declare themselves women in the name of gender.

In Rowling's latest novel, the villain is a killer who dresses as a woman. “Troubled Blood” was written by Rowling under the pseudonym of Robert Galbraith (in a game of mirrors that also earned her the accusation of favoring the conversion of gays), and was released a few days ago. It is already causing chaos.

“Someone needs firewood this winter!” reads a tweet. “JK's new book is perfect to burn.”

For months, Rowling has been called a “femi-Nazi witch” for saying that trans and gender activism erases female identity and that there are biological differences between men and women. Monsieur Lapalisse? A truism, an obvious truth. But these are strange times.
They sure are. So now, we've reached another point where not only homosexual men, but even male transvestites, cannot be depicted as villains out of modern political correctness (lesbians, by contrast, are more likely to be fair game from what I've seen in Hollywood over the years). I'd say that's all the more reason why there should be more authors who, if they're realists, have to demonstrate the courage to follow Rowling's example, and come up with more similarities. Even in Israel, writers would do well to join the fight. That way, they can also join the protest against cancel culture and make it clear all this PC insanity and faux outrages have got to stop. Rowling's done nothing wrong, and nobody can claim victimhood, sainthood, or declare these topics off limits in the name of their narrow notions of political correctness. That mentality has to end.

Court rules Malka Leifer can be extradited back Down Under

We're hopefully nearing the end of a most unfortunately protracted legal saga, as the Jerusalem court's ruled Haredi child molestor Malka Leifer can be extradited back to Australia:
After six years of court proceedings, the Jerusalem District Court finally ruled today (Monday) to extradite suspected sex offender Malka Leifer to Australia where she is wanted on 74 charges of sexual abuse and rape of minors.

The ruling is another major milestone in a case that has been beset by alleged political interference and highly unusual legal claims about mental competence for extradition, which has severely delayed the extradition process.

Leifer can now appeal the extradition decision to the Supreme Court. If the court rejects the appeal, the justice minister can then sign off on the extradition, a decision which can also be appealed to the Supreme Court.

Should the court reject that appeal, Leifer will be extradited to Australia.
And let's hope the supreme court does reject any appeal filed, which her disgraceful lawyers, relatives and clan-based gurus who've been bankrolling them are likely to do, no doubt in order to undermine Israel's reputation overseas, among other twisted beliefs. The Tzohar organization, which has ideally been campaigning for Leifer's extradition, said the following:
The Tzohar Rabbinical Organization hailed a decision Monday by a Jerusalem court to approve the extradition of accused child molester Malka Leifer.

In a statement released by Tzohar, Rabbi David Stav, chairman of the organization, called the decision by the Jerusalem District Court Monday to back Leifer’s extradition a “critical step” in combating sexual abuse.

“Today’s decision is a critical step in addressing the impression that religious figures can never turn a blind eye to the pain of victims of sexual abuse. The efforts to keep Malka Leifer in Israel and away from an Australian court were nothing less than a desecration of God’s name and a stain on our country’s reputation for pursuing justice, so we can all hope she will now be held accountable for her alleged actions.”


Rabbi Yuval Cherlow, who as Director of the Tzohar Center for Jewish Ethics has also written extensively about the case said, "Israel must never become a refuge for sexual abusers. We need to always act in partnership with all other nations in ensuring that these criminals are being brought to justice. Anything less would be gross negligence and is a failure for our national responsibility to act morally and ethically.”
Wise words indeed. What Leifer and company have done is a disparagement of the Judaist religion, and cannot be tolerated by any sect, Orthodox or otherwise. The law is going to have be modified in this country to ensure sex offenders can't exploit the Law of Return to escape justice overseas, and those who commit crimes that severe are those who definitely must be exiled.

I wonder if Leifer will try to claim she's infected with Coronavirus if that's what it takes to further avoid extradition? That'd only be all the more reason to put her on the plane back to Oz, so let's hope the authorities get ready to do just that.

Reclamation of history is important

The Daily Wire's reported that president Trump's established a committee on education for promoting patriotic values:
President Donald Trump announced on Thursday that he was creating the “1776 Commission” to promote patriotism in U.S. education as part of the administration’s efforts to combat the far Left’s agenda of trying to re-write American history.

“Our mission is to defend the legacy of America’s founding, the virtue of America’s heroes, and the nobility of the American character,” Trump said at the White House Conference on American History, hosted at the National Archives Museum. “We must clear away the twisted web of lies in our schools and classrooms, and teach our children the magnificent truth about our country. We want our sons and daughters to know that they are the citizens of the most exceptional nation in the history of the world.”

Trump’s speech comes after the administration announced two weeks ago that it was cancelling all federal funding that was going toward promoting critical race theory.
I certainly hope this provides much needed improvement for an education system that's long been badly damaged. It's sorely needed.

Freedom for Judaists to pray on Temple Mount is crucial

Josiah Rotenberg makes an important point that, for the Abraham accords to have real meaning, there must be freedom for adherents to Judaism to pray on the Temple Mount without incident:
Unfortunately, since 1967 Israel has not allowed Jews the freedom to worship at their people's holiest site. It did retain national sovereignty on and around the Temple Mount, but religious sovereignty was handed over to the Muslim Waqf, which asked that Jews be forbidden to murmur prayers, hold Hebrew books, or make any reference to the Temple while on the Mount. The status quo has remained in place because Israeli leaders were afraid that deviating from it would cause Muslims to riot in Israel and around the world. Israeli authorities have said more than once that this is a security issue, as a change to the existing order on the Temple Mount could spark violence.

That fear should not guide Israel, but these are the facts. However, we are living in a time unlike any other we have ever seen: the deal with the UAE and Bahrain, the Saudis permitting Israel to use their airspace, and the first Muslim-majority country (Kosovo) to open an embassy in Jerusalem. The Islamist wall of refusal to accept the Jewish state or Jews' sovereignty over their ancestral land is cracking.

And if the conflicts of the past are coming to an end, the arrival of an Emirati delegation might be the time to smash twisted conventions. Prime Minister Netanyahu can invite his senior counterpart to join him on a visit to the Temple Mount, and they can both pray for the peace to succeed and for the region to flourish and stay stable, each according to his own faith.
The case must definitely be made for any restrictions on the Temple Mount to be put to an end. Only if they agree on that will the Islamic/Arabic countries prove they're sincere.
