2. oh salma
American Jew ,   Los Angeles, USA   (11.21.10)
shut up. and please, you dont live in palestine. there is no such thing. You live in ISRAEL!!!
3. haredim
mike ,   uk   (11.21.10)
I have a lot of sympathy with those who despise the haredim. I am a jew but I have more in common with non-jews than the haredim. Haredi beg at your door but will they ever help a secular jew? No chance. The haredi are only for themselves, I'll never help them.
4. And what about the daily terror don by Orthodox?
Israeli Jew in US ,   USA   (11.21.10)
I wonder why the daily terror letters, threats, and harassments don by Orthodox Jews in Israel and abroad against Messianic Jews, Conservative Jews, and Reform Jews as well as seculars are not making it to the news…. I don’t support any act of hate, but I sure do feel like they got a taste of their own medicine… Tolerance people. Our Torah supports it, our Rabies not…
5. #2 don't say "shut up" to me
Salma ,   Palestine   (11.21.10)

7. actually # 2 Salma from Lebanon
David ,   Haifa Israel   (11.21.10)
Salma is a refugee living in lebanon spewing terroristic hate daily. one can only hpe she will stop... or go away one way orthe other
8. Salma #5
David ,   Haifa Israel   (11.21.10)
nothing elegant about a thug like you living homeless in lebanon. arfe you even a woman? or are you a donkey?
9. #3 Great - more needless hate.
Roman ,   Lod, Israel   (11.21.10)
And just for the record - in Israel, Haredim dominate in all aspects of charity and welfare organizations, be it food kitchens, interest-free loans, and numerous fast response rescue organizations - all staffed by volunteers. From my familiarity with the UK, the Jewish community there operates in much the same vein. And generally, those aid and rescue organizations don't really differentiate between Jew and non-Jew when giving aid. You, sir, are projecting - attempting to justify your hatred by saying that the "other" is the one hating you in that manner.
10. Alright Then, Salma
emanon ,   USA   (11.21.10)
Piss off!
11. #4 By all means, show us the death threats.
Roman ,   Lod, Israel   (11.21.10)
There's plenty of disagreements and arguments between Orthodox Jews and non-Orthodox Jews, as well as Jewish-born Christians - particularly those, considering that they tend to insist on "spearing the word" while pretending that their Christian beliefs are accepted Judaism... But from that to threats of violence? Meh. Please, do show us the evidence, though I doubt you have much.
12. Dear Salma
Jewish Warrior ,   Israel/USA   (11.21.10)
What is "Palestine"? Oh, that's right: It DOESN'T EXIST! No such thing as "Palestine" or a "Palestinian people". Israel should just give you to Jordan and Egypt and let them hold you down.
13. It was inevitable
NYC Girl   (11.21.10)
Having spent many years living among Israelis, my feeling was that if there was ever a resolution to the conflict with the Arabs, the next "war" would be between the secular Israelis and the ultra-Orthodox...and this was years before the Haredim had garnered as much power as they have now. But you could see the almost visceral antipathy between the two groups and the justifiable resentment on the part of that overwhelming majority of Israelis who aren't religious yet were being told how they can get married or how they can be buried.
14. #10 HAHAHA
Golan ,   Modiin   (11.21.10)
15.  Salma
Madeleine ,   Israel   (11.21.10)
Salma embodies the hatred and intolerance that the Arabs show to us. Brought up in hatred, unwilling to even concede of living side by side, glorifying death and martyrdom., screeching their pathetic slogans. She and Nour are exactly the reason why the Arabs will never make peace with us; they don't want peace, they want the whole of our country and nothing less will satisfy them
16. Hatred is a mindset of narrowness , arrogance, intolerance
Secular Left ,   Haifa, Israel   (11.21.10)
Witness these meretzniks. Disgusting. As a traditonal Jew, who is not dati, I apologize for such ignorant Jewish behavior.
17. Tehran would be a better choice
Avi ,   Israel   (11.21.10)
These parasites who dont work, dont serve in the army, milk the sytem dry while contributing nothing to the state and bite the hand that feeds them.
18. # 3
Birdi ,   Israel   (11.21.10)
Roman you are correct. Good post. Kudos to you.
19. @ 3 - The haredi are only for themselves,
split ,   US   (11.21.10)
No kiddin' - Imagine over 3 million of them in a country that was a save haven for Jews for centuries, being partitioned by neighbours and them welcoming occupiers with traditional salt/bread and flowers,...
20. Sadly (for them) in Brooklyn they'd have to work.
Raymond in DC ,   Washington, USA   (11.21.10)
The good folks of New York wouldn't take to providing welfare support to those whose only occupation is "Torah study". I don't care for the hate, but haredim are bringing this upon themselves. Shirking the responsibility to defend one's country or earn one's daily bread, enforcing gender segregation on buses and public performances, "modesty" patrols and the rest.
21. Real dialogue with ultra-orthodox???
smith   (11.21.10)
Real dialogue with leftist????? good luck!
22. To 7; so Salma is a lebanese?
smith   (11.21.10)
Palestinian is a myth.
23. Salma-they seem to hate you as much as they hate each other
24. #16
Joe ,   Toronto, Canada   (11.21.10)
The episode described in this article is a manifestation of events which have transpired over the past decade. Although I would never condone violence, the effect on immigration, conversions, marriages, burials, rituals (Shabbat, The Wall etc.), defense and economics from policies and decrees by the orthodox have finally caught the attention of the average Israeli. The scariest part of all is that all of Israel's enemies are salivating at the prospect of the State's destruction from within. If you are truly from the "secular left" (analogus to non-orthodox in North America), I would strongly suggest that you organize to take back the State soon for yourselves and the rest of us (we, here in NA, don't have the vote) If history repeats itself, then Ancient Israel is one part of history we should quickly learn from.
25. #17 Been sending out some letters lately, Avi?
Roman ,   Lod, Israel   (11.21.10)
Just wondering. After all, you *did* often state how civil war and violence against religious Jews was the future - a future you appear to support.
26. hating the haredim = antisemitism
27. One day ha'Shem will cleanse Israel
talmudic sage ,   TA   (11.21.10)
All this talk of hatred for the haredim. Do you not know of the sacrifice made by us for you? We pray for you without end. But your sins before ha'Shem grow even greater each day. He is not pleased with your worship of the golden calf. You have become the money grubbing Jews the goyim speak of. The funding given the yeshiva students is nothing compared to the money spent by you on your second apartments in Paris London and New York. You have suits and dresses that cost more than all the clothing my five children have. You are a wicked selfish people in the eyes of ha'Shem. He will punish you and the haredim will be blessed. If you do not like it get out of the land that was given to us, the true Jews of Israel.
28. to 27 talmudic sage.
Barney ,   USA   (11.21.10)
on the one hand you talk about how holy the haredim are and on the other hand the article above this one on the website speaks of how the yeshivas used fake student ids to steal millions from the Israeli govt. Then it seems you equate financial success and the fruits of it with being sinful. It seems to me that all people are people. There are good and bad among the "holy" and among the "secular". The real sin is the failure of the Jews to unite against the real enemies they face.
