The Torah and all Judaism are being an 8 year old girl.

The Continuing Haredization of Israel

“We have to act now before Beit Shemesh becomes the next Iran.” (from JPost ).
Israel’s Channel 2 documentary on intimidation of schoolgirls in Beit Shemesh is causing a media fury in Israel, and from what we hear in the U.S. too.

Last night, thousands attended a rally to protest the actions of this vocal minority and to force the authorities to act.

Following, is a speech delivered last night by Hadassa Margolese, the mother of 7 year old Naama Margolese, portrayed in the above video.

  1. It is an excellent start, Ira... my only problem is that Hadassa Margolese somehow manages to still believe that the government of Benjamin Netanyahu and his right-wing partners can be part of the solution... I wish I had the ability to share her confidence, but sadly, I see zero evidence to support the position... in fact, I see more evidence that any organized effort to speak truth to the immorality being practiced by the Haredim of Beit Shemesh in the name of Torah will be ignored by this government than I do reasons to expect them to suddenly enforce Israeli law and protect all Israelis, as they were elected and claim to do when it suits their foreign policy stances...
