Title: Ask JTF For Lag B'Omer, May 6.
Post by: admin on November 19, 2006, 08:56:55 PM
Note To All Posters: Only one post per person is permitted. All other posts will be moved to The Future Ask JTF Section for future shows. Comments not directed to Chaim will be moved into a seperate thread in The General Discussion.

Chaim has stated that only one short question or comment per poster will be answered. Please remember that even with these rules, the program is roughly three hours long every week! If you want to post a longer post, Chaim will not answer the whole thing and you can cut and paste for next week.



Happy Lag B'Omer,

You have condemned England and you insulted the island but then offered your apologies to Scotland. How do you reconcile your dislike of The British People if the first white Americans were themselves British? I can understand though why you condemn their government. Why do you like The Scottish People in Scotland if you hate The English People? Isn't it just The British Government that is the problem? Since you don't have anything against Scotland, what is your opinion on Wales and The Welsh? What do you think of Scottish and Welsh Americans today? What do you think of Northern Ireland Protestants? Do you like them like you like Irish Catholics?

What is your opinion of The Episcopalian Church since it is tied in with The Church of England? Are they like the Bible believing Christians led by Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell?

Yacov Menashe Ben Rachamim,
Chief Administrator.

Yacov Menashe asked me to post this on his behalf.

I heard once that Air and Space are considered to Halachically be part of the airspace of The Land of Israel. So therefore Jews in Space wouldn't be considered to be living in The Exile. Is this correct? Would it be okay if Jews live on a Space colony on Mars? One of the spacecrafts that landed on Mars had an Israeli flag image on it next to the names of Ramon and all the other astronauts. In addition to Columbia Heights on Mars, there is also a Challenger Heights.

Israel is more insane than the U.S.; I finally believe you!  According to a cnn.com report dated 4/26/07, Israel will name a forest in the northern Galilee's Biriya Forest after Coretta Scott King as Israel replants 10,000 trees destroyed after last year's war with Hezbollah.  Israel already has a forest named in honor of Martin Luther King in the southern Galilee after planting 39 trees in 1976, one for each of the slain "civil rights leader's" years of life.  They plan to spend a total of $400,000,000 for both endeavors.   Israeli Jews are the same affirmative BLACKtion Ruth Messinger suckups as NYC Judenrat/Capos.  Are they worth saving?

Yacov Menashe adds: Why would Israel want a forest with an affirmative action name like "Coretta, HMM UMM!"?

1. Dear Chaim, myself and Yaakov Menashe would like to open a thread to look for an assistant for you, would you like us to proceed?

2. Chaim, there is some confusion among forum members as to the status of a Talmud Chacham in Halacha, what Cavod is required to be shown him, and what those who criticize a Talmud Chacham are deserving of. As I am sure you recall from Gemara Sanhedrin even the Melech, and Cohen Gadol must give honor to a Talmud Chacham, as I am sure you recall the Rambam writes in Sefer HaMitzvos devoting oneself to a Torah scholar, becoming his disciple, serving him, studying under him, and learning from him, is considered devoting one’s self to G-d, as the Torah scholar, having internalized more Torah, is more in tune with G-d’s Will than you, that a Talmud Chacham is as a living Torah. If you oppose Rav Ovadia, that is your choice, I understand you do not consider him a true Talmud Chacham but please clarify your view of those you do consider Talmidai Chachamim and how they must be treated.

Dear Chaim,

I made an Ovadia Yosef thread/poll that, while insulting, completely avoided sexual and obscene terms (I compared him to a cockroach, an AIDS-infected transsexual, and a diseased rat), and Yacov removed it. Ovadia Yosef is an Erev Rav rabbi; why is it unacceptable to state that he is a fraud? How is he different from a Neturei Karta "rabbi"?


Yacov adds: Transsexual is not a sexual term?

Dear Chaim,

    (Thankyou for doing this every week. I love you brother! G-d bless you!

Anyway this again is continued from our discussion about Magic and such!)

1. The ancient Gentiles had this knowledge of natural science that they percieved as Magic which we already said wasn't. However I don't think it is a good thing weather you are religious or not to totally dismiss this knowledge. Remember this is what made those Gentile nations great!! The Christians in Europe tried to do away with all of it calling it Pagan and Satanic and killed many people of the old ways just like they did with the Jews. Consequently much knowledge of science of the Pagans was lost and along with the killing of the Jews there, plunged Europe into a Dark Age for many centuries!! Any knowledge of anything that didn't go with thier argument that Jesus created the universe was persecuted!! Remember that Chaim please. Don't say it is Satanic stuff. It's no more Satanic than the person who wields it!!

Incedently I do understand and believe that all this knowledge they had that made them Great people availed them not when they went up against Israel and Hashem!! I know this! This is why I believe in Hashem! He is the Master of all this knowledge and the arts because he is the Master of the Universe. Maybe I should convert to Judaeism cuz I sure as heck won't ever be a Christian.

2. The Kurdish people of Iraq seem to be doing better than thier Arab counterparts. They live in more peace and tend to be more secular and even more capitalistic. What is your opinion of them and why do you think they are different from the others in Iraq and the Arabs? What about the Turks? Same thing!

Dear Chaim, 

I've watched and listened to many of the debates that Rabbi Kahane had with various jewish liberals and "conservatives" like Dennis Prager, Alan Dershowitz, and others. Everything that he said would happen has happened, and no one has taken these people to task for how wrong they were. Both Prager and Dershowitz called the Rav a false prophet in their debates. Prager has a radio show. Dershowitz goes on TV alot. How do these people who have been shown to be so hopelessly wrong, have the nerve to go out in public? Why are these people not taken to task for their mistakes?

Hello Cahim,
I understand your criticism of the war in Iraq; however Sad-man Hussein gave $25,000 to the family of every homicide bomber who killed Jews in Israel, & supported the systematic genocide of the Jewish people.

Some could argue that is enough reason to have supported the war, as American should thank Bush for keeping the terrorist ‘busy’ in Iraq, otherwise they would be in  the States – with no Americans being able to walk

Very inspiring show last week and thank you for answering my question. I think I'm getting a better idea of the Jewish perspective of the "next world".

My question:

The Book of Genesis is my favorite book in the Torah (I suggest anyone with young children read these stories at bedtime as a rated G version  ;)).  Anyway, I have noticed that out of the three forefathers, Avraham and Yaakov are very significant characters with significant speaking lines. However, Yitzhak seems to be a symbol and has very few speaking parts.  Namely, Yitzhak is mentioned as a miracle birth, that he was "played with" improperly by Yishmael, that Avraham almost sacrifices Yitzhak, and when Yitzhak gets duped by Yaacov to get the birthright over Esau..but essentially nothing more that I can recall.  In other words, Yitzhak doesn't say much; Everyone else seems to speak or act for or against him (Eliezar, Rebbeca, etc). If anything, later on in his life, he is made to look like a fool by choosing Esau has his favorite son. Do the rabbinical sages (blessed be their memories) have any explanations for any of this?  Am I reading into this properly? What do the midrashim, if any, say about the significance and symbolism of Yitzhak?

Thank you.

Hi Chaim

A follow up to what I said last week about blacks, I was not saying I disagree with your stance, I fully agree that those who support al sharpton and his ilk are not that dissimilar from apes. I have no objections to you calling them such, however, on occasion possibly by accident you have made statements that suggest that you think all blacks are evil, and not just a proportion of them, for instance at the moment on wikipedia the following statement is used as "proof" that JTF is racist "the blacks you just can't live with them, they're completely uncivilised", (from one of the TBA episodes on youtube), what I'm asking is if you could try to add qualifiers in future, for example, "most blacks" rather than "the blacks".

Many people when they hear about Kahanism instintively say "that's a terrorist group". When asked "what terror have they committed?" they usually cite Baruch Goldstein in Hevron killing Arabs and Irv Rubin trying to blow up a mosque.

How do you respond to those allegations?

Hello Chaim, 

Thank you for answering me as always.  Last week I was watching the Democrats debating on NBC their first debate.  And someone asked Bongo Obama a question that he did not seem to have a real answer for.  "If America GoD forbid gets attack again how would you (meaning Obama) react to it and what sort of retaliation would you (Obama)  follow up to it"? and he did not seem to have a legit answer at all. In fact he did not seem to know how to answer.  Isn't this alone so obvious of what we will expect if GOD forbid this Son of a Monkey gets to be the one in charge of the nation and also the lives of millions around the world? Why is everyone frothing over this guy is beyond me.  And Hitlery is no prize either she is such a socialist I think she is worst then her sick perverted husband.


I was on the subway this weekend and tourists were on the subway and this animal smelly black bum with the paper bag and started to sing.  (Not really singing sounded like apes mating) And these tourists they were obviously out of town clean cut white blonde haired couples with their children were ready to give him some change.   I told them don't do that put the money back trust me on that.  And they all looked like I was weird and said "Oh thats so wrong of you"  I just do not understand whites anymore what is wrong with them they also have gone insane.  What is really wrong with people?

First off, I want you to understand that I wasn't trying to compare you to Farakhan or saying that you shouldn't hate him. I find him to be a tremendous bigot and I despise him immensely! My issue was more about making generalizations on a particular population.

I've always been curious why is there so much hatred, scapegoating, and fighting among blacks and the jews? Considering that blacks and jews have experienced similar histories involving slavery and persecution, why wouldn't blacks and jews have empathy for each other and form alliances with each other?   ???

Last week you said it would not be practical for Israel to use nuclear retaliation against it's enemies. Can you explain specifically why? If Kahanist Israel were to retaliate with conventional weapons the Muslims animals would respond the same as they would if they were attacked with nuclear weapons. If the "consequences" are the same why not use nuclear weapons against Mecca? Weren't you the one that said if it were up to you all their men, women and children would be exterminated? What better way to accomplish this then with the usage of the Jewish invented hydrogen bomb? In fact, I believe it should even use it's chemical, biological and genetic weapons as well. Muslim children should be targeted even more than the adults because they have their whole terrorist lives ahead of them whereas the adults are less of a threat because of their older age. No punishment is excessive when dealing with Muslim excrement.

Dear Chaim,
The best ways to bring about a change is to spread Rabbi Kahane ZT”L HY”D ideas in Israel. People, more than ever, are ready for them now.

The  www.kahanetube.com/sub.htm  is the website that Yekutiel prepared for this project. The goal of this project is to clean up these rabbi Kahane DVDs, and add Hebrew and Russian subtitles and then to distribute these DVDs in Israel. I think it is a worthwhile project that all Kahanist, regardless of their differences, should collaborate on.

I think it would be a great help for you to plug this project in your shows and allocate some space to this project on the JTF website so that people can donate to that cause which, undoubtedly, will help ensuring Israel’s safety and prosperity.

PS Suggestion - For you shows, I think “business casual” should be a good compromise for your shows – nice (expensive) dress shirt, nice black dress pants and a kippa. No sun glasses! This will definitely be adequate for an older audience and would be palatable to the younger audience.

PPS I think that you’ve made a very valid points as far as the “security fence” and convinced me. I was trying to find out construction completion percentage but could not find it. Do you know what it is?

Hello Dear Chaim,

Hope you had a great week and all is well.  Brief one hopefully in keeping with the new format.  As a brilliant speaker, I was wondering if you could recall some of the debates that you may have had with schwartzes, Arab Muslim Nazis, etc., through the years?  I would love to hear stories about how you put these people in their place and made them see the error of their ways and foolish thinking.  Until next week, G-d willing.  All the best.

Dear Chaim,
Why do think there is virtually no talk of pushing the U.S. Government to act on the Jerusalem Embassy Relocation Act of 1995, which they seem to be putting off every two years?  It's sad that this is the case but I think that may be what it takes to prove to the Gentiles (obviously not the Righteous Gentiles - they're the few that understand) that Yerushalayim is indeed the eternal capital of the Jewish people and only the Jewish people.  I am new to the forum, so I hope this question has not been asked recently.

1) Chaim, thank you for your kind words by suggesting I should also be the moderator of the Kahanist Movement section.  I'll be happy to accept your offer.  Only thing is I can't guarantee how much time I can dedicate to the forum in July when I start my hospital rotations.

2) We've had problems deciding on what content you would approve posting on this forum.  For example, we had a thread calling R' Ovadia Yosef the "Jewish hitler" and other vile names which incited religious members of the forum to leave and one guy complained to Yacov about it so he locked the thread.  Now the starter of the thread is complaining that we trying to water down your style and message since you said bad things about him.  Similar things happened many times before as well.  Members with short fuses and big mouths like to say whatever they want on the forum claiming that they are following your example as an excuse.  We are driving away people due to these posters.  So could you clarify to these people what is acceptable to post on the forum especially when writing about Orthodox Rabbis?

Dear Chaim,

Abortionists claim that the God of the Bible killed millions of babies during Noah's great flood. Their point is why would religious Jews and Christians oppose abortion?  How can we counter this argument?

Thanks in advance!

Hi, Chaim. You remind me of Richard Nixon. You see, Nixon probably thought that his attitudes towards Jews were not anti-Semitic bigotry (that they are mostly dishonest) because of his admiration for Henry Kissinger. Likewise you think your attitudes towards blacks (that they are mostly dishonest) are not racist because of your admiration for Alan Keyes. In conclusion, it's amazing how surprising the parallel is--I can honestly say that you are a Nixonist!

A long time ago, you used to have a section on your forum asking people to write to their congressmen and other government officials urging them to assist in your making aliyah to Israel.  Is this still something you think is worthwhile doing and should that information be on the web site or in the forum?  Thanks,

Hello Chaim hope everything is gine and happy LAG B'OMER, just answer if too long.

1: If a Kahanist government couldnt get Moslems out for a few years, would Israel enact an Apartheid style policy for Israeli Arabs? Please explain how Prime Mister Vancier would do this.

2: Would a Kahanist government use only Israeli weapons built in the land of Israel, IE Pistols, handguns, missles, aeroplanes, bombs. Or would they Use Israeli and American weponry? For example. The Israel police under a kahanist government has the choice to arm its officers with Israeli made desert eagles, or Smith and Wesson 357 magnum revolvers. Both could blow a hole in an arab easily.

Have a good week.

Shalom Chaim!

Well, it looks as though Ehud Olmert just may be on his way out. Ma'Ariv has published a poll showing that if elections were held today that the Likud would win 37 seats in the Knesset and Netanyahu would win the office of Prime Minister.

Although Arik Sharon was from the Likud, and split...surely Netanyahu is not the opportunist that Sharon was. Surely Netanyahu is better for Israel than Olmert.

What do you think?

Hello Chaim,
             I was wondering if the Republican presidential debate held the other night highlighted any one candidate or issue for you that would cause us here at JTF to take interest in them. Looking over the candidates in both parties leaves me very distressed as to where we are going in 08. The Democrats are horrible and the Republicans have little better to offer.

PS. Thank you for allowing me to moderate the Immigration section of the JTF Forum. I look forward to working with the administrators and other moderator's for years to come in our efforts to make JTF a mass movement.         cjd

Hi Chaim, when you move to Israel G-D willing, what will your strategy be to become more popular there. Will you continue to work with Noam Federman or do you think he will betray you also once you are no longer able to provide him with money? I am only asking this in light of the sad Marzel situation and I no longer know who is trustworthy. What will your actions to expand your recognition be in your first month in Israel?
