the bread of freedom being sent to Gaza

Minister Meir Porush has petitioned the United Nations to send humanitarian aid to the hostages being held in Gaza.

Porush reached out to Tor Wennesland, the UN representative to the Middle East asking to send matza and wine as humanitarian aid to the 133 hostages being held in Gaza. Porush stressed the aid should be sent before Monday evening to ensure the hostages will be able to use it to commemorate the Pesach holiday, even if only in a symbolic way. Receiving such aid would also raise their spirits and help them withstand these difficult times while being held captive until they are released.

Porush did say that we are hoping and praying the hostages will be released by then, before the holiday, but in the case that they aren't, this aid should be supplied.
source: Hamechadesh

Even if the request should be accepted, they will get it like they got the medications that were sent in a few months back... and how likely is it that Hamas will give wine to the hostages? But at the end of the day, all we can do is try, so good on him for requesting it. 

And hopefully the matza will be the bread of freedom for them and be the harbinger for their release quickly and in the very near future.

Haredi opinion on attacking Iran

I am not sure what the right move is in response to the Iranian attack on Israel this past Saturday night. I have heard, I think, all the possible options, and the logic behind each all make sense, so I dont know which of them is the better strategy. Once again, I thank God for it not being me who has to make this type of a decision.

With that caveat, I was surprised to see the following news item. Not because of what was said, but the fact that it was said at all.

The news is reporting that the Haredi representatives in the government have been polling the various leading rabbonim as to what the government should do regarding Iran and what they, the Haredi MKs and Ministers, should support or oppose.

A rundown brought by Kikar shows that MK Moshe Gafni is opposed to an attack on Iran by Israel, at least if not coordinated with the United States. Gafni says this is the opinion of Rav Dov Landau, and was also the opinion of Rav Shach. It seems the Gerrer Rebbe, the Viznitzer Rebbe also agree with this position. MK Aryeh Deri is also opposed to an attack on Iran. 

While I havent seen Sefardi rabbonim quoted in this matter, other news media reported that Rav Moshe Maya when asked refused to give an opinion saying he does not understand these matters enough nor have enough information to offer guidance. In my opinion that is more impressive than the various rabbonim who are offering opinions (though maybe they have more information or understand on defense matters)..

So what is surprising about this?

The Haredi MKs used almost completely stay out of defense matters. They used to say that without them sending their kids to the army, they cant comment on these things. it is wrong, and it will also look bad that they are helping decide matters of defense and security that will mostly affect others but not them. It looks like that policy has changed.

protecting Haifa?

President Biden said last night that he warned Israel to not attack Haifa.

What does Biden love about Haifa so much that he feels he must intervene to protect it? And why is Israel attacking Haifa?

Maybe it is because Yona Yahav, the mayor of Haifa, just said the other day that he is planning on naming a new neighborhood in Haifa after Joe Biden - Ramat Biden or something like that. That was a smart move by Yahav, a strategic maneuver to protect Haifa from Israeli attack! by naming a neighborhood after Biden, he has guaranteed that Biden will help protect his city from Israel!

Hopefully it will increase awareness even more and help bring her son Hersh home from his captivity, being held by by Hamas in Gaza since October 7, 2023.

Picture of the Day




A storm or other severe weather in the Iranian island of Hormuz caused the Hormuz River to turn blood red.

This is pretty cool happening right as Pesach begins, and just after the Iranians shot rockets and drones at Israel. They should take it as a warning...

Not to be a killjoy but this seems to happen not too infrequently. The beach there is called Red Beach because of the red soil and sand. the sand/soil washed into the river because of the storm, turning it red. Despite all that, it is still cool, especially because of the timing.

And for the humorous perspective, perhaps the Mossad (hey, the Jews control the weather!), caused the storm and the subsequent event of the river turning red to send a warning to the Iranians...

I dont really care that Harrison Bader hit the game winning double yesterday, because he did it for the Mets. What is special here is that he did it while showing his support for Israel wearing a Jewish star on his belt.

BTW, Hader considers himself Jewish. His father is Jewish and his mother is not.

Quote of the Day

Neither the Iron Dome nor other defensive shields were able to take significant action against #Iran's operational tactics in "Operation True Promise".

  - Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Bagheri

lol. Yeah, that's why 99% of everything the Iranians shot at us last night was taken out before crossing into Israeli airspace, and the little bit that did was also shot down with just a couple rockets causing nominal damage and one injury. That's ok. Let them think they hit Israel hard and caused tremendous damage to the Zionist entity. Like the Arab countries that told the local Arabs to leave in 1948 so they could destroy Israel and the Arabs will come back after the war is over....

mazel tov to Ismail Haniyeh on the great honor of having his children become martyrs for the Palestinian cause.

While he lives in luxury in Qatar, he let his children and grandchildren continue living in Gaza, leading to today where they were killed in an Israeli strike.

I expect that Haniyeh will send a thank you note to Israel for helping his children achieve the great honor of becoming martyrs, shahidim. And on our side, it was surely a great honor for Israel to facilitate the process

Quote of the Day

There is intensive work being done in the government offices preparing for re-settlement of the Gaza Strip. The optimistic vision is renewal of the Gaza settlements. You can see processes in place, including work to prepare for it in government offices. There is intensive work behind the scenes to ensure that it happens.

  -- MK Limor Sun Har Melech (Otzma Yehudit)


Either she is lying while being hopeful, or PM Netanyahu and DM Galant lied when they denied it and said it isnt going to happen, or maybe they just dont know what the Otzma people are planning, or maybe nobody really knows what is going on in the government and each MK and minister does whatever he or she wants without any coordination.

And again, first let's worry about resettling the displaced communities in northern and southern Israel and then maybe consider expanding into Gaza.

Quote of the Day

Truthfully, klal yisrael is klal yisrael, even if many are mistaken, but klal yisrael is all one klal yisrael. So, it is true that everyone needs to carry the burden and contribute to the success of klal yisrael, but there is a fundamental mistake, what is considered sharing the burden? The truth is the ones bearing the burden are actually the yeshiva bochurim, the learners of the holy Torah.... the truth is that the valuable bnei torah, those who keep torah and mitzvos, they support everything, the entire Jewish nation and and the entire situation. Sharing the burden? That is not called equality! That means we are bearing the entire burden! Bearing the burden means strengthening in torah and prayer..

shameless

I dont know many of the personalities on the Left and involved with Achim Laneshek or Koach Kaplan (obviously I have become familiar with some of the main names, but not most of the people involved there), so I dont know who was behind or who was actively involved in tonight's protest in Mea Shearim. 

It is a shame they are letting extremists take over the movement and do things that do not advance their goals in any way and will only hinder them. There was absolutely no purpose and nothing to gain by the protest they held tonight in Mea Shearim and all it was good for was to generate some "action" and violence and increase hatred among the two sides for each other.

I have no problem with protests (legal, police sanctioned) even during war. That's part of living in a democracy. Tonight's was just shameful and purposeless.

Dudi Amsalem

Minister Dudi Amsalem just filed a petition with the Supreme Court to draft the Arab community in Israel to the IDF.

Amsalem thinks he is standing up for and helping his coalition partners, the Haredi community, by filing this petition, as if he is pointing out a massive hypocrisy. Amsalem says the Israeli Arab community gets benefits just like everyone else in Israel but does not share in the burden of army service. And like the Supreme Court just ordered the Haredi community to be drafted for lack of a law exempting them, the Arab community should be drafted as well. The Arab community does not get automatic exemptions, but the IDF does not send them draft notices.

I am not sure who Amsalem thinks he is hurting or helping. He is a member of the government, and has been for a long time. If the Arabs are not drafted it is because his governments chose not to (for security reasons). So now he wants to force his government to draft them? he could probably have just gone to PM Netanyahu and said if this is what they are doing to the Haredim let's also draft the Arabs. He didnt have to go to the Supreme Court. They are not being drafted not because they refuse to be drafted and go to the army for religious reasons but because the Israeli government chooses to not draft them because the Israeli government thinks as a whole they cant be trusted regarding security, dual loyalties perhaps or whatnot.

And if they are not being drafted for security reasons, Amsalem thinks getting back at the Supreme Court is more important than the security of Israel? He's thinking I am going to show them how hypocritical they are and I am going to put us all at risk in doing so!?

If the government thinks they have ways to draft the Arabs and they can do it without being a security risk, I am all for it. I think the Arabs should be required to do at least National Service if they dont go to the army. I think most Haredim should do at least National Service as well. Again, Amsalem is part of the government - he does not need to go to fight in the Supreme Court to do this, just pass a law. The only reason the Supreme Court got involved is because for years Netanyahu and his various governments have refused, or failed, to pass a law for the draft to make a legal arrangement with the Haredi community. This government is all about personal benefits and games instead of doing the real work.

Quote of the Day

My position that we can no longer come to terms with entire sectors being exempted from army service is well known. Together with that, the obstinacy of the Supreme Court to obligate the government to change a situation that nobody has been able to change for 70 years specifically now, during an ongoing war, is infuriating, idiocy and plays into the hands of the enemies of Israel.

  -- MK Hanoch Midiwsky (Likud)

He's not wrong, but.....

he is not wrong, the world wont come to an end if they give a 6 month extension or whatnot.

On the other hand it is not the Supreme Court's fault that PM Netanyahu has done his utmost to avoid legislating this and has repeatedly pushed it off to later...

Yitzy Spinner - Titchadesh (Official Video)




It’s been four weeks since I donated a kidney to a complete stranger. In the days leading up to surgery, I struggled to put my thoughts and emotions in order. I finally did what comes naturally to me - I sat down at the piano and composed this song. It flowed from a place deep within. I recorded it four days before surgery with tears in my eyes. The surgery itself was on February 12, 2024. The message of the song is a blessing that I received that I want share with everyone who listens. Titchadesh is a word that can’t be directly translated to English. It loosely means ‘use it in good health’, or more accurately, ‘it should renew you’, or ‘you should have a Renewal.’ I sought a blessing from a Rabbi in the weeks leading to surgery and he wisely said “When you donate a piece of yourself, your body is transformed. You should be blessed to be not as one who is healthy even without two kidneys, but as one who is whole and complete, in your renewed self that has nothing lacking. Enjoy your new body - Titchadesh!” By recording this song and its message, I restate this sentiment for myself and share it with my recipient. I wish for him to live a long and happy life with his renewed body. May the kidney that is new to him keep him healthy for many years to come and may he feel renewed with each passing day. I hope he hears this song and feels as inspired as I do - to thank The One Above for the gift of health and for the opportunity to wake up each morning and smile. Titchadesh!

Bring them home now!

Ari Rosenstein asks a good question:





I would extend the question a bit and suggest that considering the UN resolution just passed, Israel should cut off the current negotiations for a ceasefire deal with the exchange of 40 Israeli hostages for the proposed 700 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails. Why should there be an exchange of anything to get the hostages back and to obtain a ceasefire if both sides must adhere to a ceasefire and hostage return anyway?

send in the troops

So, once we went this route and have this crisis, whether you think it was a crisis created by the USA or one by Israel, if we are rejecting the United Nations resolution calling for a ceasefire (and return of the hostages), does that mean Israel will immediately send in the troops to Rafah?

If the troops dont get sent in right away at this point, what was the point of this crisis?

When do you think Israel will send in the troops?

Resolution questions

The relevant clause in the United Nations resolution passed today reads:

1. Demands an immediate ceasefire for the month of Ramadan respected by all parties leading to a lasting sustainable ceasefire, and also demands the immediate and unconditional release of all hostages, as well as ensuring humanitarian access to address their medical and other humanitarian needs, and further demands that the parties comply with their obligations under international law in relation to all persons they detain;

My question for the United Nations, or any international legal experts out there, is... are these considered separate issues or are they tied to each other by being in the same clause? Meaning, if Israel ceases fire as is being demanded of it, does Hamas have to release the hostages, and if they dont then Israel can go back to firing? Or will world pressure then move to Hamas? and vice versa? And being that this is for Ramadan, as specified in the clause, even if Israel ceases fire now, in two weeks when Ramadan is over it will be acceptable to restart the war?

There has been tremendous pressure on Israel; regarding Rafah in recent weeks, leading up to this resolution and the USA abstaining rather than vetoing - where is the massive world pressure on Hamas for their holding the hostages? Now that this resolution passed will we start to see an increase in pressure o Hamas?

And, a general question: the resolution says the demand for ceasefire is for Ramadan. That means in two weeks it will all be ok again. So, if Israel has waited this long anyway without going into Rafah, what's the big deal to wait another two weeks?
