53 percent of Israelis oppose the protests against Netanyahu in the USA

When Benjamin Netanyahu visited the USA, there were some very crude protests against him. But there's also those who disapprove of those demonstrations:
A new poll conducted by Lazar Research Laboratories for the Maariv newspaper showed that most of the Israeli public opposes the actions taken to protest Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during his visit to the US.

According to the poll, 53% of respondents expressed opposition to the protests in the US, while 36% supported them and 11% said that they do not know if they support or oppose the activities.
The one that took place circa Alcatraz in San Francisco was particularly disgusting, and those who're running these leftists protests have to stop doing them. Better still, nobody should be attending them at all.

NYC council plans to remove Washington and Columbus statues from their locations

New York City continues to crumble in many ways as the leftist municipal council mulls a plan to remove every statue of George Washington and Christopher Columbus from their locations:
On Tuesday, the New York City Council’s Committee on Civil and Human Rights held a hearing to discuss the removal of historical statues in public places. The criteria for removing these statues are expansive enough to include most of the more than 2,500 works of public art in the city.

I imagine this costly endeavor will suit the members of the City Council just fine.

New York City is buckling under the weight of an illegal immigration crisis. Last month alone, New York spent $300 million on the issue, according to Mayor Eric Adams—but it will spare no expense in carrying out a Maoist-style cultural revolution.

Just remember this as New York crawls groveling to the federal government for aid.

On the list of villains to remove from pedestals and scrub from public places are George Washington, Christopher Columbus, and Peter Stuyvesant. The latter is the Dutch governor of New Netherland, which became New York, to name just three.

This isn’t just about statues and history, though. It’s about social revolution and control. The committee is additionally looking to implement “anti-racist training” for all city employees and contractors. (New York state is considering reparations, so look forward to that, too.)

There’s been some local political resistance to the Left’s plans for mass cultural vandalism.

“This is little more than an attempt by the radical Left to rewrite our nation’s history,” said Joann Ariola, a Republican City Council member from Queens.

I agree entirely, which is why I wrote my book “The War on History: The Conspiracy to Rewrite America’s Past.” The Left wants to remove and replace everything the country was built on and to start again from year zero.

“The radical Left has been trying to reframe our nation as one born from evil, and it is time we put our foot down and say, ‘Enough is enough!’”
Ariola continued. “The Founding Fathers and the others who worked so hard to establish this great country should be celebrated, not eliminated from memory.”

Good answer to this nonsense. It’s the only answer that should have been given from the outset.

The iconoclasm we’ve faced in America and the West has nothing to do with the Confederacy.

Many historians and legacy media publications mocked then-President Donald Trump when he said in 2017 that after tearing down statues of Robert E. Lee, the Left would go after Thomas Jefferson and Washington next. It didn’t take long before many of those same people and institutions joined in on the iconoclasm and happily tore down Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt, too.
That they'd have no qualms about vandalizing Lincoln statues, or removing them altogether, says all you need to know what they really think of opposition to racism, which in the future is something they'll sadly be likely to bring back, no matter what they claim now. New York, if anywhere in the USA, is certainly headed on a downward spiral to disgrace.

UTJ member Yisrael Eichler's attack on Zionism is similar to antisemitism

A writer named Zina Rakhamilova takes issue with UTJ Knesset member Yisrael Eichler's demonization of Zionists, which was offensive even to observant Judaists, and is little different from antisemtism, including that of Islamofascists:
Over the past few weeks, the Israeli public has once again been subjected to the stomach-wrenching experience of listening to its “partner for peace,” Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, repeat the outrageous and unfounded assertion that Jews were to blame for the Holocaust.

This is to be expected from someone like Abbas, who got his Ph.D. in Holocaust revisionism, but what hurts more this time around is that members of the Knesset are also gaslighting Jews.

President Abbas went on Palestinian TV claiming that “Hitler fought the European Jews because of their usury and money dealings; it was not about antisemitism.” Abbas wrote his Ph.D. dissertation at a university in Moscow titled “The Other Side: The Secret Relationship Between Nazism and Zionism,” so we could not expect anything more from the “moderate” Palestinian leader.

What is sad is that it isn’t just the PA President spewing falsehoods about the Holocaust.

Israeli haredi politician goes on anti-Zionist tirade

During the days leading up to Rosh Hashanah, tens of thousands of Jews planned to pilgrimage to Uman, Ukraine, which houses the burial site of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, a respected hassidic sage.

Although the government tried to procure security guarantees for Israeli citizens from Ukraine and Russia, the government still discouraged travel to these lands due to the ongoing war.

To emphasize the danger to this mostly religious demographic, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu referred to the hundreds of years that Jews were mass murdered in Europe by stating, “God has not always protected us, not on European soil and not on Ukrainian soil.”

In response to Netanyahu’s fair warning, outrage erupted among his religious political bedfellows. The Shas and the United Torah Judaism parties released statements condemning Netanyahu, denouncing what they perceive as heresy.

A particularly scathing and unhinged admonishment came from MK Rabbi Yisrael Eichler, who took the opportunity to counter Netanyahu’s cheeky history lesson with a smattering of falsifications about the Holocaust and an outright assault on Zionism.

According to Eichler, because “Zionists did not prevent the Holocaust in Europe,” they should bear some responsibility for the annihilation. Similar to Abbas, Eichler makes vague and unsourced claims that Germany failed to conquer the Land of Israel due to “miracles.”

He also credited unspecified miracles for the survival of the State of Israel, as opposed to the generals of the IDF, whom he slandered in the past. He adds that all Holocaust survivors who stayed in the Diaspora lived in relative peace, whereas only in Israel are Jews subject to violence.

The United Torah Judaism party’s official stance is an opaque non-Zionism. However, this thin veil often comes off, and the party's anti-Zionism is fully displayed.

Attributing “evil values” and “idols of power” to Zionism, Eichler echoes the same drivel available on Iranian Press TV or Palestinian newspapers. Netanyahu’s anti-Zionist partner held no punches, attributing any success of the Israeli state to God and none to Israelis.
See, this is why what Eichler did was convey antisemitism, whether he thinks so or not. Or even Jewish self-hatred. What Eichler did was horrific, and even insults Holocaust survivors by extension. He even presented a telling example why many Haredis like him are shockingly living in a vacuum.
It is challenging to argue logically against the assertion that events occur due to miracles. However, the idea that Israel and Zionism have been a net loss for Jews is unbelievably easy to counter.

The “secular regime” that Eichler aimed venomous bile at was responsible for rescuing millions of Jews, regardless of religious devotion, from North Africa, the Middle East, Ethiopia, and, indeed, post-Holocaust Europe from endless violence and dispossession.

Eichler’s own strand of Belz Hassidism was saved from near collapse when the World Zionist Organization smuggled his spiritual leader Rabbi Yissachar Dov Rokeach from Hungary to Israel from the Nazis’ clutches in 1943.

As Rokeach bravely fled and left nearly all his followers behind, he assured them that “peace and tranquility will reign here for residents of this country.” The only “peace” those people received was the “rest-in” kind, as half a million Hungarian Jews were subsequently slaughtered.

Eichler knows this, but just like Abbas, decides to ignore history and blame the Zionists for every malady
between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea.

Eichler’s bizarre Holocaust lesson continues the degradation of relations between the diverse groups of Jews in Israel. Mahmoud Abbas’s bizarre Holocaust lesson continues the degradation of relations between the Palestinian Authority and the State of Israel.
Let's also consider at least 2 members of the UTJ party defended sex offenders like Malka Leifer and Eliezer Berland. That too weighs very heavily against them. And lest we forget that the whole notion of "palestinians" is also a falsehood. That told, here's something amazing that took place recently:
However, in a heartening display of backbone, 100 Palestinian academics penned a letter condemning their spokesperson for peddling hatred and lies. They rebuked Abbas’s “attempt to diminish, misrepresent, or justify antisemitism, Nazi crimes against humanity, or historical revisionism vis-a-vis the Holocaust.”

In doing so, these people make clear that there is an opposition to their leadership and helpfully keep those responsible for representing an entire demographic to account.

Our Torah-based, intellectual haredi (ultra-Orthodox) community in Israel is responsible for speaking up against those in their ranks who falsify history and cheapen the memory of the Holocaust.

Haredi civil society has a responsibility to reclaim their voices and help heal the divide that is being created by our leaders and condemn Eichler for his sinat hinam against secular Jews and Zionists.

At the end of the day, Israel and the “Zionists” that Eichler endlessly bashes will have to bear the responsibility should anything happen this season in Uman.

However, the blame would lie jointly at the feet of the Russian war machine for targeting a civilian area in Ukraine and at the individual irresponsible hassidic rabbis who encouraged their flock to visit an active foreign war zone.
Now it's certainly remarkable when Arabs being described with a Roman name for Israel are willing to take issue with one of the worst monsters of the PLO, though it should also be noted some such academics, like this one, have sadly been shunned for their courage. So the question now is whether Haredis who made serious PR mistakes like Eichler did will own up to their mistakes. Regrettably, something tells me there's a collective policy among such insularists not to admit publicly they screwed up horribly. As a result, it could be ages before any Haredis like Eichler are ever willing to apologize for the divisions they've caused, and stooping to behavior chillingly similar to what non-Jewish antisemites practice. How do ultra-Orthodox like Eichler not comprehend that being Haredi doesn't make it acceptable to espouse such repulsive views?

In France, anybody who protests against Muslim violence and calls for self-defense can be arrested

We have another example of how, in a way, France is tragically under a totalitarian grip doing favors for the Religion of Peace, and authorities arrest opponents over an Orwellian Thoughtcrime (via Jihad Watch):
After a migrant allegedly raped a French woman so brutally with a broomstick that she was forced into a month-long coma, two dozen right-wing protestors marched outside his home in Cherbourg, France. However, at least half of them are now facing criminal prosecution and up to five years in prison for an “unauthorized gathering” and for “promoting self-defense” despite the French government’s glaring inability to protect its own citizens.

The demonstration, which took place on Sept. 9, 2023, in the Provinces district, was on behalf of 29-year-old Mégane, who awoke from her coma but remains between life and death. The French government may have special reason to pursue Argos, the right-wing group that organized the protest, as the group is the direct heir to the French group Génération identitaire, which was banned by the government in 2021. Génération identitaire became a thorn in the government’s side after it ran a series of civil disobedience protests against the state of demographic transformation in France and the government’s failures to control illegal immigration.

[...] The prosecutor in the case is apparently taking issue with the group’s calls for self-defense, despite the state being increasingly unable to defend its citizens.

“You are appearing for having, through speeches made at an undeclared demonstration, incited willful harm to a person’s integrity by calling for self-defense,” stated Pierre-Yves Marot, the public prosecutor. He announced that five members of Argos were first arrested by the police and another seven were taken into custody inside a vehicle shortly afterwards.
The prosecutor should be utterly ashamed of himself, as should all police officials who arrested these brave opposition activists. All authorities who went against the protestors, including Generation Identitaire, instead of the jihadists who've poisoned France, should resign from the jobs they don't deserve.

But I also think even Israeli delegates concerned about what goes on in foreign countries should consider speaking out in favor of the opposition to Islamofascism in said foreign lands, because there's Europeans who need all the help they can get, and if Israeli representatives were to speak in their defense, it could be very important.

French government cannot be silent about victims of Muslim rape

The father of a girl who was raped into a coma by an Islamofascist has condemned the state's silence on the issue (via Front Page Magazine):
In a case that has made national headlines in France due to the level of brutality, 29-year-old Mégane has now awoken after being raped into a coma with a broomstick by Oumar Ndiaye, who has been dubbed “the monster of Cherbourg” by politician Damien Rieu.

The 29-year-old woman has been in an artificial coma for over a month since the attack on Aug. 4; however, her health still remains “fragile,” according to relatives.

The attack is being described as an “act of torture” by French news outlet Le Figaro, in which the 18-year-old Ndiaye allegedly broke into Mégane’s apartment and began to rape her with a 29-inch-long broomstick, perforating her colon and causing injuries that nearly killed her and left hospital staff treating the woman in tears. Police sources say Mégane had reportedly seen the suspect before but had no interaction with him prior to the rape.

“Mégane came out of a coma a few days ago, but her state of health remains fragile. This is obviously excellent news, but it will take her a long time to recover from all that she has suffered,” said her father, Ludovic, in a press release, which he also read on the radio station HAG’FM, which he founded.

Ludovic is now trying to raise awareness about the French government and its lack of response to the brutal crime, as well as to the fact that the man who allegedly tortured his daughter into a coma had a long criminal record but remained free to attack again.

“(The government) not communicating about this attack gives credit to all these sexual predators and other parasites of society who plague the streets. A wake-up call to the government about the fact that we leave this kind of individual, with a heavy criminal past, in complete freedom, would be welcome. ‘Trust in justice,’ we were told… We only want that,”
he said.

As Remix News previously reported, the 18-year-old suspect has a long and violent criminal record consisting of 17 offenses involving physical assault, theft, and the incestuous sexual assault of his younger sister.

The suspect was arrested a week later, with his fingerprints matching those found in the victim’s apartment, and the suspect’s geolocation on his phone also showed that he was in her apartment during the attack. [...]
If he wasn't arrested before, or was released much too easily from custody, that says quite a bit too. And the government would do well to address the abominations, because this dhimmitude to sexual violence has gone on far too long, and cannot be ignored.

Trump goofs on transsexuality

Ben Shapiro has questionable positions, but on this subject involving Donald Trump's fumble when it comes to addressing the issue of transsexuality and the harm it's done to society/women/children, Shapiro does have a point:
Last week, Megyn Kelly asked former President Trump about his stance on transgenderism, which has changed radically over time.

Trump used to say that he would allow men to compete against women in the Miss Universe contest
. In 2016, he said he would allow Caitlyn Jenner to use the women’s restroom, even though Caitlyn Jenner is a man.

Kelly asked him about why Jenner should have been allowed to use the female restroom. Trump responded that nobody was talking about the issue at the time.

That’s not true.

Then Kelly asked a simple question: “Can a man become a woman?”

Trump hesitated. It would have been very easy for him to say, “I changed my mind on the subject.”

But Trump has never admitted that he’s ever made a mistake. So that was impossible for him.

“In my opinion, you have a man, you have a woman,” Trump answered. ‘I think part of it is birth. Can the man give birth? No, no, although they’ll come up with some answer to that also someday. I heard just the other day they have a way that now the man can give birth. No. I’ll continue my stance on that.”

It was amazing how uneasy he was to simply say that a man cannot become a woman. This is literally the easiest question of all time. And yet Trump hesitated.
Well there's a valid point there that if he didn't just say plainly "no", it can be undermining to his positions. Let us be clear. This is a very serious issue we're dealing with here, with the worst part being how protected-class status is being applied to the whole matter of men claiming to be transsexual, or claiming they're literally a woman because they even so much as say so, and even get horrific surgery to make themselves look similar to women. Trump shouldn't be reluctant to give clear answers, because that's exactly why we're at this dire point in history.

I hope more people will press people like him on the issue, and hope next time, he gives a more straightforward reply, because conservatives can't be mushy on something that's hurt women and children very badly in many ways.

Azerbaijan attacks the Nagorno-Karabakh region, endangering Armenians

Azerbaijan's continuing their jihadism against Armenians in the Nagorno-Karabakh area, which is actually called Arsakh (via Jihad Watch):
Today, the dictatorship of Azerbaijan launched a full-scale military attack on Nagorno Karabakh, also known as Artsakh, where 120,000 Armenian Christians have been under siege for nine months.

CSI’s President, Dr. John Eibner, warns, “If Azerbaijan’s allies and commercial partners – the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia, European Union, Israel, and Switzerland – do not act immediately to restrain it, there will be mass killings and other atrocities against the region’s civilian population. Genocide is imminent.”

CSI has received word from the Minister of Health for the Republic of Artsakh, Vardan Tadevosyan, that the capital city of Stepanakert is being bombed continuously by artillery. “We are under attack,” he says.

Azerbaijan’s defense ministry has announced that it has begun a military operation to “neutralize [the] military infrastructure” of the Armenians and “restore the constitutional order of the Republic of Azerbaijan.” An armed Azerbaijani conquest of Nagorno Karabakh will entail nothing less than the destruction of its ancient Armenian population.
Correct, and it's shameful how until now, dhimmitude for Islam's continued to reign, while these atrocities kept going.

Update: now making things worse is that Armenian separatists in the area have surrendered to Azeri forces. And what makes this additionally repulsive is that Azeris, according to a TV report, waved an Israeli flag at a celebration?!? All because of the terrible error Israel made of giving weapons to Azerbaijan, apparently, but it's humiliating as it's bound to end up becoming a PR embarrassment for Israel as a result.

The real legitimate reason for indicting the Haredi rabbi who committed serial adultery

An indictment was filed against the Haredi rabbi Yosef Paryzer, who caused a scandal by committing serial adultery, though the prosecution wants to make it a case of rape by deception, a controversial law in Israel. Some of what's told here:
Paryzer, a 34-year-old American citizen and married father of two, lived a double life. His youngest child was born just three months before his secret came to light. He lived with his ultra-Orthodox family in Jerusalem and taught at a yeshiva, but also presented himself on various dating websites and applications such as Tinder, Bumble, and OkCupid as Segal. Segal appeared to women as a single, secular to traditional man who worked as a seeing-eye dog trainer.

As Segal, he dated over 30 women, many at the same time, since 2016. One of his longest extra-marital relationships was almost seven years long. Paryzer promised the women serious relationships, which appeared to be geared toward marriage and family.

[...] Paryzer showered the women with affection, the indictment alleged, never intending to fulfill his promises but simply to obtain their trust, part of a systematic and sophisticated modus operandi to satisfy his own needs.

[...] The district attorney alleged that Paryzer also courted women not just for sex through dating apps, but sought and obtained sexual images and videos from them.

When some of the women he met dating discovered his deception, two filed a complaint to the police.

In Israel, it is a sexual offense to have sexual relations with consent achieved through deception of one’s identity.

Some of the women have been against criminal prosecution
, preferring to move on from the relationships.

Paryzer was arrested on August 22, and has been held in jail since.
Now first, while his serial adultery is appalling, it still seems awfully disputable to claim he literally raped the women, if the relations were consensual. Though it definitely was offensive how he deceived one of the women who was in bad shape following a different relationship that failed. However, the part about his obtaining sexual imagery from the women, that's disturbing, as it strongly indicates he committed an invasion of privacy. Consider: what if he'd distributed the images on the web, causing all sorts of embarrassment for the ladies? That would have been offensive, and a violation of their privacy.

So that's the real reason to file a legal case against Paryzer, who's since been fired by his yeshiva. And most of the women he tricked, as noted, don't support prosecution over deception alone. It'd be better if that law deeming sexual relations through deception were jettisoned, and Paryzer just charged with illegal solicitation of photos and videos. And that'd be just the beginning of what laws could be mended, IMO.

Yariv Levin on what the Israeli supreme court is like

The current justice minister says the Israeli supreme court is an elitist bastion:
Deputy Prime Minister and Justice Minister Yariv Levin stated in an interview with CBS's 60 Minutes that the High Court of Justice is "an elitist bastion that too often overrules lawmakers chosen by the people."

"No democracy can accept a situation that the government, the elected government that has a majority in the parliament, won't be able to pass any bill and to do anything because there are protests, because there are some people that are against it," Levin said.

Levin challenged the interviewer's questions critiquing the current Israeli government, assuring that "the vast majority of the members of parliament that support this government stand firmly behind democratic and liberal principles."
What's really sad is how the far-left's going out of their way to protest this in the most reprehensible ways possible. All that does is make clear why the overhaul is needed.

When Rachel Ehrenfeld learned about the platforms of George Soros

Ehrenfeld, who once wrote about Islamic finance of terrorism, was one of the first people to be aware of the bad platforms advocated by millionaire George Soros in the 1990s, one of which was to get drugs legalized in the USA, if anywhere:
Ehrenfeld first became aware of Soros’s plans in the 1990s due to her research on drug addiction and drug trafficking (Soros’s first foray into American public policy was drug legalization). “I knew that drug legalization would cause a massive increase in the number of drug addicts,” writes Ehrenfeld.

“Moreover, I recalled that enabling easy access to narcotics was mentioned in the ‘Soviet Military Encyclopedia’ as an important weapon during so-called peacetime. It was recommended because when easily accessible, narcotic use spreads like fire, undermining the targeted country’s society, economy, and political integrity,” she continues.

In February 1995, as result of her expertise on drug issues, Ehrenfeld found herself invited to a dinner at Soros’s home in New York City. He posed as open-minded and prepared to debate the drug issue, so she decided to correct him when he praised the Swiss. (Ehrenfeld had just returned from Switzerland, where she met with experts involved in a government-sponsored project to supply addicts with heroin, morphine and free needles—an experiment which proved a disaster.)

“[P]olitely, I interrupted Soros, pointing out he was ill-informed. He seemed stunned that I dared contradict him and forcefully repeated his praise of the Swiss. When I insisted he was wrong, the angry Soros turned around and left the big living room. The other guests, who until then stood around us, listening, moved very fast away from me. The scene reminded me of something Woody Allen would have created,” she writes.
Well those other guests were clearly as much a disgrace as Soros himself was being. But if you think that was bad:
Ehrenfeld recognized that Soros was determined to change America’s drug policy. In a Feb. 7, 1996 Wall Street Journal op-ed, she cautioned that Soros’s “sponsorship unified the movement to legalize drugs and gave it the respectability and credibility it lacked.” She also warned that if Soros went unchallenged, he would alter the political landscape in America. She even visited senators and Republican mega-donors to tell them Soros must be countered. Nobody took action, she said.
Not even Newt Gingrich, who if memory serves, once met with Yasir Arafat? Again, we have an example of how RINOs impeccably managed to lead to a most dire situation via ignorance. And, in case you're wondering, yes, Soros bankrolled Israel's enemies:
Q: Do you agree with comments by people like attorney Alan Dershowitz, who has said that George Soros has done more than anyone to turn Americans against Israel?

A: [Former U.S. Ambassador to Israel] David Friedman also has said that nobody has done more damage to Israel than George Soros. He’s funded the New Israel Fund, the Palestinians, Birzeit University, anti-Israel organizations in Israel. I quote Soros saying tribalism is not for him. So he doesn’t live in Israel. But he did everything in order to destabilize the place.

Q: Soros always cries antisemitism when he’s attacked. What’s the best way to undermine such a defense?

A: When people like Benjamin Netanyahu, David Friedman, Dershowitz and myself keep telling people this is not antisemitism. Unless you say that he’s Jewish and this is why he’s doing it. The religion he was born into has nothing to do with it. Soros says he’s agnostic.

Since the book came out, several Jewish publications have refused to publish either excerpts from the book or review the book. I’ve received hate mail following interviews, many from Jews. It’s worrisome.
The situation she describes is very much like how ultra-Orthodox clans rallied round abusive figures like Nechemya Weberman and Malka Leifer. So the leftists who're bound to be those ostracizing anything to do with her book better not claim they're any better than the Haredi extremists.
Q: Are you worried for Israel given that his son, Alexander, who’s slated to take over, has expressed more interest in Israel and Judaism than his father?

A: Alex is a big supporter of Jewish causes if by Jewish causes you mean anti-Israeli organizations.

It was interesting to see in the Wall Street Journal announcement with Alex Soros in June—I wouldn’t call it an interview, it was more a glorified PR ad—it showed a picture of Alex with his father at his bar mitzvah. I saw that as really a threat: “You criticize what I do, you will be accused of antisemitism.”

Alex has been trying to increase the division between the observant Orthodox and the … secular in Israel. He’s said that Jews in America are still conveying their support to Israel no matter what, and they don’t understand when they are supporting Israel, they are supporting apartheid. Soros, his father, was the first one to support the apartheid conference in South Africa.

Why they are so bent on hating Israel and trying to destabilize the Jewish state is beyond me. They are not the first self-hating Jews. Unfortunately, they have a lot of influence.
That's what makes them such a bad lot. If Soros Sr. was bad, we can only guess just how much Soros Jr. will be, especially now that he's using the antisemitism card just as much. This is practically why I'm furious at Haredi extremists, since they've used similar tactics, and it's only undermined the ability to combat self-haters properly.

It's good Ehrenfeld's shed light on what's wrong with Soros and company. But bad there's so many far-left Jewish Americans who're turning their back on her research.

Ukraine wisely bars entry of Eliezer Berland to their country, while local Haredi zealots make offensive remarks about Zionism and the Holocaust

It's bad that Ukraine has to be suffering from Russia's assault by war, but it'd also decidedly be bad if they allowed the convicted sex offender "rabbi" Eliezer Berland into the country. Wisely, they didn't:
Eliezer Berland, a convicted sex offender who leads the Shuvu Banim community, on Thursday attempted to enter Ukraine ahead of the Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) holiday, but was refused entry, Ynet reported.

[...] According to Ynet, Berland has a "black stamp" in his passport for a period of three years, and is not allowed to enter Ukraine. The Ukrainians refused to allow him into their country due to this ban, and Berland was forced to turn around and is now on his way back to Israel.
And lest we forget:
Last month, it was reported that Jerusalem Minister Meir Porush (United Torah Judaism) contacted the Ambassador of Ukraine in Israel, Korniychuk Yevgen, requesting to lift the ban imposed by Kyiv on Berland from entering the country so that he could come to Uman on Rosh Hashanah with his followers.
That too was offensive, and as noted before, has amazingly drawn condemnation from Haredi women themselves. Good to see that as of now, Berland's banned from Ukraine, where monsters like him don't belong. Since we're on the subject of UTJ, it's also decidedly worth noting that one of their most prominent supporters, Yisrael Eichler, has brought anti-Zionism to the fore in a most offensive way:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu elicited outrage in Haredi circles Sunday after saying, in comments intended to dissuade religious Israelis from traveling to Ukraine this weekend, that “God has not always protected us, not on European soil and not on Ukrainian soil.”

The remarks appeared to spark a coalition crisis, featuring some of the most strongly worded infighting since the current coalition was formed in December.

The premier made the statement as a warning to the public against participating in the annual pilgrimage to Uman in Ukraine over Rosh Hashanah, amid the ongoing war there.

[...] But the most hostile reaction came from United Torah Judaism MK Yisrael Eichler, who blasted Netanyahu’s “ignorance” and indicated his belief that it was the “Zionists,” rather than God, who were to blame for the suffering of Jews in the Holocaust.

Eichler wrote that “for over a century, the God of Israel has saved the Land of Israel from the idolatry of power, vulgarity and assimilation of the secular regime.”

The Germans were halted on the way to conquer Israel by extraordinary miracles, not because of the Zionists, Eichler argued.

He went on to claim that the Zionists had in fact turned their backs on the Jews of Europe, thwarted rescue attempts and disdained “the Jews of the ghettos,” while adding that some had collaborated as Judenrat. Eichler said that the once-revered military had been revealed in its “incompetence and contemptibleness” in the Yom Kippur War in 1973, and that former top generals who oppose the current government’s judicial overhaul had recently shown themselves to be “rebels” who are “inciting a bloody [civil] war” in the country and giving it a bad name abroad “like the worst of our Islamic enemies.”

“When you see who the generals were, you realize that only thanks to the miracles of God Almighty do we survive,” Eichler fired.

He added that “some Zionists even called the Jews in the ghettos ‘Human dust, they should meet their fate.'”

“Be silent when you blame the God of Israel for your failures and crimes,” he declared. “If it weren’t for those who keep the Torah, Israel would have long ago been erased from the map of the Middle East.”
This is most truly scummy thing to say, and it's no shock Eichler would obscure the role of some Haredi gurus in betraying their masses at the time. What Eichler's done is a most utterly vulgar act, and a classic example of exploiting the ends to justify the means. If Eichler really wanted to, I'm sure he could've researched how there were Jewish-Israeli soldiers who'd fought in WW2, and tragically, receive no thanks from stuffy, insular scoundrels like him. And he doesn't even distinguish between "Zionists" and any leftists who didn't participate in the war at the time, which would have to be the most eyebrow-raising problem about men like himself. His words have drawn condemnation:
Eichler’s harangue was decried, in turn, by Likud and opposition MKs, as well as by the Yad Vashem Holocaust museum.

“We would be happy to host MK Eichler at Yad Vashem to learn about the rabbinic, Zionist and secular leaderships during and after the Holocaust,” the Jerusalem museum said in a statement. “Then he would maybe avoid disseminating baseless words of contempt.”

Education Minister Yoav Kisch, from Netanyahu’s ruling party, called on Eichler to “take back the anti-Zionist defamatory words he wrote,” adding that he was “ashamed” of the UTJ lawmaker’s remarks as the grandson of a Zionist soldier who fought the Nazis.

Fellow Likud MK Dan Illouz said: “MK Eichler, I am shocked by your words. Several days before the Day of Judgment (Rosh Hashanah), I would suggest engaging more in love of Israel than in baseless conspiracies that incite against entire communities.”

Illouz argued that “the Torah itself taught us to form an army” and that “I haven’t met a single person willing to give up the protection of IDF soldiers when they go to pray in Hebron, even though God is also protecting him through those soldiers.”

“Demanding care in acts that pose mortal danger, as the prime minister did, is not ignorance — it’s a healthy Jewish viewpoint,” he continued. The Canada-born Illouz argued that antisemitism and other threats were still prevalent abroad, and that “the very existence” of the Israel military also protects Diaspora Jews.
And that told, there's another closely related subject to ponder. There was another riot and traffic jam caused by the "Jerusalem Faction" clan of the late Shmuel Auerbach, all because a yeshiva student was arrested for army desertion, and some of the language the rioters used has to be read to be believed:
Hundreds of ultra-Orthodox men staged protests across Jerusalem and Bnei Brak on Wednesday after a call to demonstrate was put out by the extremist Jerusalem Faction, stopping traffic on major roads following the arrest of a young ultra-Orthodox man after he failed to show up to his call-up on Tuesday. He has since been released from military prison.

The protests come at a tense time amid the dialogue surrounding the draft law, with a new version of it, The Conscription Law, sparking controversy within the government, with ultra-Orthodox parties threatening to dissolve the coalition if it is not passed immediately following the Knesset’s summer break, scheduled to end after the High Holy Days in October.

In Jerusalem, protesters held up numerous signs at the demonstration. One read “A Holocaust is preferable to recruiting yeshiva students.” Another protester told Maariv “I’d rather get shot than enlist.”

Some of the rioters cursed the policemen, called them “Nazis,” spat at them, laid down under the police cars, and tried to sabotage their vehicles. One rioter punched a female officer in the chest and kicked another officer. The rioter was arrested and taken under police questioning. Another two arrests have already been made by police at the demonstration for disorderly conduct.

Police stated that protesters blocked the intersection of Sha’arei Yisrael Street and Nordau Street, blocking both the light rail and the intersection to traffic. The road has since reopened to traffic. Approximately 200 protesters were at the scene, according to Walla.

Israel Police officers contained the protest, eventually opening up the road to traffic after two hours. Physical altercations did take place, police said, with one female Border Police officer getting punched in the chest, while another was kicked. The man was taken for further investigation, joining two others who were detained.
Now that assault on a policewoman can be considered a form of sexual violence, and the criminal should be locked away in solitary for such a heinous act, which definitely discredits ultra-Orthodox Judaists. That aside, it's also stunning how the clannists could claim mass murder is okay, which was exactly what they're doing, and they completely disrespected Holocaust victims as a result. Their use of the word "nazi" as a slur is equally obscene, and hints at a peculiar contradiction, considering what they said with the picket signs.

And if the Haredi parties threaten coalition crises over these issues, that too is offensive and petty. As for the rioters, they are in serious need of deprogramming, because it's clear they underwent some of the worst indoctrination since childhood. For now, they should be ostracized, and no sane person should be financing their "yeshivas".

Hunter Biden indicted on gun charges

Originally, the legal system, leftist-influenced as it was, didn't pursue charges against Joe Biden's son, despite all the serious evidence against him. Now, however, it looks like Biden Jr. is facing a legal prosecution for one of his crimes:
Federal prosecutors have indicted Hunter Biden on gun charges, according to court documents.

Special counsel David Weiss filed charges against President Joe Biden’s son after the two sides failed to reach an agreement on a plea deal that fell apart last month. The agreement fell apart after U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika questioned the limits of Hunter’s immunity under the deal.

The indictment charges the president’s son with three crimes related to false statements made on a federal application to purchase a firearm. The charges relate to a time when, in October 2018, Hunter claimed he was clean of drugs to purchase a handgun. He later wrote in his memoir that he was addicted to crack cocaine at the time.

Two of the counts carry max sentences of 10 years in prison, while the third carries a max sentence of 5 years, according to NBC News. The stiff sentences are a sharp contrast to the agreement worked out under the failed plea deal. The plea agreement would have freed Hunter from jail time and instead put him in a diversion program that, if completed successfully, would have wiped the gun charges from his record.
It's disgraceful, as some commentators have noted, that plea bargains would even be considered in cases like these. Thankfully for now, Biden Jr. is facing the justice he should be. But who knows if he'll actually get a proper jail sentence for any of his most serious criminal offenses? That's what's unclear, sadly.
