1. Slonemer Rebbeh says NO compromise
Jerusalem   (06.23.10)
B”H (Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010) The Slonimer Rebbe Shlita released a harshly well worded letter on Wednesday, June 23, 2010, just after the High Court of Justice harsh ruling of Tuesday, sending some of the Emanuel women to prison. The Rebbe Shlita clearly states: he is convinced the court is well-aware of the truth in the case, and the court’s words are simply lies, untruths to the core. The Rebbe Shlita explains this is a battle of faith against non-believers. The Rebbe Shlita tells followers a day after the court decreed that nine Emanuel mothers must serve jail terms that the battle here surrounds a Torah lifestyle versus those who deny the validity of Torah. He also stresses this is simply a test of Emunah, our belief in G-D and the Torah way of life. The Rebbe Shlita adds that if he really thought the judges believed there was truly discrimination at Emanuel’s Beis Yaakov, he would act differently, but this is not the case at all. “But since I have no doubt whatsoever that their words are baseless, this is simply a battle of Emunah against K’fira, between the Koach of Kedusha and the Koach of Tuma, the Sitra Achra – a battle that we all knew would come near the end of days”. “And in a battle of Kiddush Hashem, even if they stand us before a firing squad, there will be NO compromise. Hashem is our King and we will continue in his path until our last breath”.
2. #1 Does this mean a change in Jewish thinking?

'And in a battle of Kiddush Hashem, even if they stand us before a firing squad, there will be NO compromise' Isn't that what the Palestinians say about their land too? TATA
3. So Jail Rebbe Shilta for Incitement
Daniel ,   TA   (06.23.10)
Let him stand in prison. Discrimination is disgusting and illegal! Incitement to riot is criminal. This is so counter to the philosophy of maintaining a good name that I can hardly think of Rebbe as a true Jew. Throw him and anyone else who acts above the law into jail. Contempt of court is the charge now use it!
4. No man or groups of people stand above the law..??
rebecca ,   Modiin   (06.23.10)
Sorry. God does. Our supreme court, despite how they think of themselves, are not gods. I hear justice has already spoken to one of them.

"Sorry. God does" Hashem is not a "man or groups of people". There id no mistake here.

Nope, the Palestinians dont say the same. They dont use the words, "Kiddush Hashem" DUH.
7. Dear Prime Minister
Jack Rivkin ,   New Zealand   (06.24.10)
Just pass an anti discrimination law in the Kenesset. This is all that is required. Failure to do so will never ever solve this injustice. Until such a time I am here to stay. God bless New Zealand Amen ve Amen!
8. #6...what difference does it make?
Edithann ,   USA   (06.24.10)
The Palestinians are not going away..and Israel is doomed to live on their land illegally and whine mournfully until the Messiah finally shows up... TATA

A Jeursalemite ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (06.24.10)
Do you remember the fall of the Second Temple and the Zealots? THAT is what you and yours are bringing on us again. If you don't believe in the State, then leave it!

learn to read ! this article is about Ethiopians in Israel, not Palestinians. Not everyone in Israel is waiting for the Messiah.
11. #10 ..You're wrong again!
Edithann ,   USA   (06.24.10)
Are you saying your discrimination against Ethiopean Jews is somehow different then that of Palestinians? YOu must be kidding! You may think you're not waiting for a Messiah...but you're waiting for 'something' to get you out of the mess you created...and 'HE' aint comming! TATA TATA

Trying to put words in my mouth & twisting this atricle wont help you at all. This article is about Ethiopians in Israel, not about Palestinians. I do not discriminate against any Jew, in Israel or in the entire world. I did not create "the mess" & I am not waiting for anything.
