1. careful what you wish for
jsl ,   IL,USA   (02.10.09)
the streets over here in america this past nov 4th were shaking with fear not hope. andthe shaking has only gotten worse since except now its the worlds streets who are shaking in fear along with us americans. new isn't aways good--experience and accomplishment are far better--be careful what you wiswh for. "barack obamaness" is horrid by all accounts.
2. You like Obama, you can have him
Tracy ,   La, ca   (02.10.09)
3. Prayer for Israel
Sheila Kay ,   Waldorf Maryland   (02.10.09)
Churches across America are praying as Watchmen on the Wall, for our beloved Israel. We too are concerned, because 'as Israel goes, so goes the world.' Most Christians have a favorite that we would vote for, but, I will keep that to myself until after the election. Shalom
4. Shlomo, I love your music, BUT
Debbie ,   Jerusalem   (02.10.09)
.....your left-wing delusions are truly nauseating. Sorry Achi.
5. i disagree
eitan ,   austin, usa   (02.10.09)
you're mistaken to look up to the usa and its election. obama is an emperor with no clothes. america is going through some sort of mass histeria. israel is the real deal. its elected officials are not the problem. they didn't abduct shalit and kill people and celebrate their death with sweets and candy. that was the arabs. please get your head on straight.
6. What it will be, Shlomo? HADASH or MERETZ? LOL!
Ariel ,   Europe   (02.10.09)
7. Given a choice between Obama an Springshtein,
Rivka ,   Tel Aviv   (02.10.09)
I would go with the Sprinshtein (it she a Jew?)
8. progressive wail, Artzi?
Cameron ,   USA   (02.10.09)
This yearning for "transformative" Populist personas to shove their vision down everyone's throat, is one of the most disturbing political phenomena I have ever witnessed in my years. They always fail. The big cold world will always be the big cold world. There is no escape from it.
9. to 8
hala ,   jerusalem   (02.11.09)
yes there is to escape from the cold world to yourselfe you will be stronger hotter and smarter
10. Obama, another false messiah
SK ,   NY, USA   (02.11.09)
11. "stronger, hotter, and smarter"
Cameron ,   USA   (02.11.09)
#9, I'm 1/2 turned on by your preduction.
12. Torahless or Superstitious -- Not a Choice
Paqid Yirmeyahu ,   Ra'anana, Israel   (02.11.09)
Torah does not permit support either for a government separate (i.e., le-havdil) from Torah or for a government ruled by superstition and calling superstitions Torah (khilul ha-Sheim). This election has demonstrated, yet again (how many times will it take) that qodesh will never mix with khol. The unavoidable--and should be unsurprising--product is intrinsic cognitive dissonance, an inherently conflicted balagon. Havdalah is commanded and those who profess to follow Torah while mingling with the khol make themselves sanctimonious hypocrites and breachers of Torah. Havdalah from khol, including those who reject or ignore the b'rit Torah and refuse to make teshuvah, is a mitzwah, not a suggestion. Those who think they can claim the promises of Torah based on the sanctimonious hypocrisy of violating this basic mitzwah will continue to be thwarted until they make the unavoidable havdalah. Your grandparents would have sat shiva for them and moved on; and they were right. ha-Sheim and His Torah don't change... ever.

15. Election Day Thoughts
Loria Brooks ,   Indianapolis, USA   (02.13.09)
Psa 29 May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble; may the name of the God of Jacob defend you;may He send you help from the sanctuary and strengthen you out of Zion; may He grant you according to your heart's desire, and fulfill all your purpose. We will rejoice in your salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners! May the Lord fulfill all your petitions. Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will remember the name of Lord our God. They have bowed down and fallen; but we have risen and stand upright. Save Lord! May the King answer us when we call.
