1. I remember him in the bad old days.
Brian Cohen ,   Judean Peoples Front   (02.03.12)
I have nothing but respect and admiration for this mensch. Meshi-Zahav is a shining example of how to turn your life around with mitzvot, serve Hashem, and be an example to your fellow man. The best example a Jew can give is to live an exemplary life that can only inspire others. This is what he is doing, and the many secular persons who are touched are only impressed by the sincerity and genuineness of this haredi man. Kol hakavod to him.
2. Sof kol Sof , a serious reaction from a GREAT Man
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (02.03.12)
In Israel's Charidi society . He knows about what he talks , and has proven to be a true Mensch . Hope that his wise words will have some more positive reactions in the Charidi world , ande that those sirikim will be banned and excluded from them . It's such a voice that was needed . Thank you .
3. And now PT guy ,finally happy?
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (02.03.12)
4. Kol Ha Kovod to Meshi-Zahav !
moshe ,   Tivon, Israel   (02.03.12)
Israel has righteous religious Jews Jews: the proof of that is Yehuda Meshi-Zahav . The man sees the works of terrorists and he sees the work of the Sikirikim and can NOT see a difference, (because there is NO difference) I for one back him, as should all Israeli Jews : pious ,religious, Masorti, just plain Israelis, and even the anti-religious minority. A perfect subject to gather all those that value Israel including , Israeli Christians , or Israeli Moslems. Kol HaKovod to Meshi-Zahav ! moshe
5. Sicari
zivron   (02.04.12)
They are deluded causing hatred in am yisroel.In the Roman occupation the sicari killed jews they regarded as not fanatical enough and badly weakened jewish unity needed in any war . Real traitors have to be weeded out of coarse butto spit on eight yearold girls who are dafka shomer shabbos and whose people serve in the army they ought be deported.
6. As one looking in and a long time Tber I find it
Al   (02.04.12)
hilarious that the ones who contiuously pour oil on the fire of anti-religious hatred, now sudenly heap parise on this man. Could it be that he and his crew risk their lives all the time being the first to go in and save people after suicide attacks and what not? To Chalres Sagi and others of your ilk, you are despicable. Today you praise this religious man, other days you scorn the religious Jews ike crazed anti-semites. You keep reminding me why I could never live in a place inhabited with the likes of you.
7. Reb. Meshi-Zahav
Thankful   (02.04.12)
Kol Hakavod! A true Tzaddik...if there ever was one! Ken Yirbuh...we need more like him!
8. Majdele from Jerusalem : NO
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (02.04.12)
It's only a , fine and good , voice in the desert . All the others , you included , have to move too in this direction . As long as we will not hear much more similar voices i will not be happy . As lonng as they will tolerate separate seats in buses , on sidewalks , delete women's faces , and so on , i will not be happy .
9. ZAKA founder slams violence
Hadassa ,   Holland   (02.03.12)
This has made my day !!!
10. Thank you!
Jew1 ,   Ashdod   (02.04.12)
Thank you for speaking the truth! I hope all rabbanim will also keep their personal interests and politics aside and will unitedly start changing the haredi world in right redirection. Too much damage is done by keeping them idle, away from core issues of studies and putting in their head that the rest of the world (including less observant jewish people) is a poison, woman is snake and they must hide themselves from all of these and/or hide the other gender to keep themselves pure. They are truly turning into taliban if proper steps are not taken...
11. BAruch hashem ... finally charedi PR in action
Josh ,   Israel   (02.05.12)
greatest PR since .. who knows we... charedim condone violence.
12. Al , not better as those sirikim TRY # 4
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (02.05.12)
you did'nt read everything i wrote regarding those charidi NGO's . But you found an excuse to stay abroad . Well , Al , stay there , we don't need nor want you here .
13. TRY II And now is the turn of great...
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (02.05.12)
secular people to be brave, and speak up against the expulsion of Jews from their homes.
14. 6 Al It is not advised ,to remind..
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (02.05.12)
people who do good-- of their passed shortcomings. Al ,your heart is since long in Israel. It is time the rest follows.
15. Many many Hasidim would like to make statements
to condemn, disown and disassociate ourselves from the "zealots" (kanai-im), but we do not have the high profile presence to be seen/heard by the media...and the media doesn't really care to see that presence (hatred sells papers). Kol hakavod to Reb Meshi-Zahav for using his high-profile, distinctly Hasidic self and making the statements that he has made. He speaks on behalf of all of the voices you have not heard. I asked myself, as I looked around the sea of Hasidic faces at my there anyone man here that I could even IMAGINE spitting on a little girl?!? Honestly, the answer was: no. Thank you, Reb Meshi-Zahav for speaking up, for speaking our minds. Am Yisroel Echad, b'lev ECHAD.
16. 15 . Why anonymous ? what do you fear ? TRY # 2
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (02.05.12)
If you want , you CAN oppose those extremists . How is it possible that you can assemble vast quantities of charidim to call police officers nazis , but not to show in a positive way ? You only look for an excuse not to react and oppose those extremists because you APPROUVE them .
17. 13 , don't give me advice !
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (02.05.12)
I know what to say by myself , and will not speak out your way . I have different ideas .
