Picture of the Day

Picture of the Day


With the Iryah of Bet Shemesh cowardly avoiding putting up the flags of Israel for Yom HaAtzmaut, some local residents decided to step up to the plate and put up flags in the lightposts flag slots.

  1. once again dov lipman creates hatred and animosity by going to the secular press to show how great he and his dati leumi friends are. their ahavas yisrael has no boundraies... unless of course there is a chareid Jew who thinks differently than him on the other side.

    1. Jeremy, flags should be flown in an Israeli city on Yom Haatzmauet.

  2. LOL nice one jeremy

    Is it legal to hang flags from street lights? Can I hang a russian flag? Or a confederate flag?

    I understand they feel the iryah should have done it, but they didnt. So is it legal or not? If its not legal, I find the irony of celebrating the modern state by breaking its laws quite humorous.


    Also, and this bothers me every year - why is it so noisey at 11:00 pm on yom atzmaut every year? Why are there loud speakers and music that can be heard blocks away at 11:00 at night? I understand, the zionists are having a party, but there was a wedding or something else, I dont think they would be allowed to make so much noise. In fact, I think it would be illegal, yet here again, the irony of breaking laws in order to celebrate the state shines thru.

    Its also quite insensitive to kids who get woken up. Why cant they end the noise earlier? If this is such a major part of your religion / sense of self / sense of nation - so why do we have to wait sooo long to start? Shouldnt everyone be able to show up in a timely fashion?

  3. Jeremy - as far as I know, though I might be wrong, Dov Lipman had nothing to do with the hanging of the flags in Bet Shemesh

  4. anonymous - I did a quick search to see what the law is. According to this government website http://www.shituf.gov.il/discussion/207 Yom HaAtzmaut is an exception to the noise law (there are others as well, such as Purim and Yom Yerushalayim until 1am) - on Yom HaAtzmaut a party can be held with noise, music and loudspeakers from the time of entry of YH until 6 am.

    so those who want to sleep might not like it, but no law is being broken.

    1. What about LAG BOMER? The year that I lived in Israel, Lag Bomer was an all nighter with loud, boisterous bands, singing, dancing and NOISE GALORE.

  5. To whoever got up there and hung the flags - way to go.

    The mayor of our city always caves to the pressure and does not know the meaning of leadership - a real leader does what needs to be done without letting the public make decisions for him. I for one look forward to the day he leaves office.

    And Jeremy (AKA Mr. Ahavat Yisroel) don’t go throwing out names if you don’t have the facts. Dov Lipman works hard to keep B.S. RBS A NORMAL – a home for all, not just for one type of person. We should all (regardless of religious backgrounds) thank Dov for making B.S. a home for everyone.

    Anon,

    If you don't like living in the Zionist entity I'm certain that there are plenty of places where you will feel more comfortable.

    Then when Moshiach comes you can return as long as his kippa, his children's school, the hechsherim he eats, etc. are good enough for you (and your kid's shadchan).

    1. see http://lifeinisrael.blogspot.com/2012/04/city-of-bet-shemesh-and-israeli-flag.html for the first part. because of that a group of residents decided if the iryah wont put up flags on the roads by their neighborhood, they would. and they did

      Delete
  8. Thanks Rafi
    Appreciate that research..... as I hear the kids coming back from their night of (legal and) loud fun :)

    INfidel... no need to get so upset. What happened to live and let live? What happened to eilu v'eilu? What happened to agree to disagree? What happened to ... you get the point?

    Anon,

    Look at your post and then look in the mirror!

    Your words hardly express eilu v'eilu.

    "your religion"
    "the zionists are having a party'?

  10. Inquiring Minds Want to KnowApril 26, 2012 12:58 AM

    On the subject of the partying....I was at the tekes and concert tonight.

    There are many people there who probably shouldn't be and certainly not with their kids.

    If you are charedi, send your kids to cheder and hold that live music is assur during sefira why were you there?

    What message do your kids get when they go to yeshiva the morning after and learn from rebbeim who don't exactly agree?

    If you are not a hallel sayer, do not celebrate in other ways and take the typical charedi attitude how do you justify the "partying" tonight?

  11. most of us, myself included, are not really very consistent in our actions. we do things for various reasons. some things we believe are right, some are for public consumption, some are because we want to despite our beliefs (taiva), or for many other causes and reasons, sometimes conflicting with each other.
    We are humans, not perfect.
