1. Jewish ayatolah
yigal ,   north   (05.21.12)
2. No wonder there is so much antisemitism
Haim ,   TA   (05.21.12)
3. Consider the source
Jacob ,   Holon   (05.21.12)
Considering the source comprises a group of people who mostly (not all, but mostly), do not go to formal schools or universities, and have a large amount of their income from state funded programs for their large families, this is a bit funny to me
4. Where are the wise ?
peter ,   tel aviv   (05.21.12)
Reading those utterances makes you wonder what happened to the wise men who once were part and cornerstones of Judaism. How did we let it happen that such fools and hate filled nitwits have millions of followers that listen and act according to their words. Those people have forgotten the teachings a long time ago.
5. A rab can be an idiot
citizen ,   Jerusalem   (05.21.12)
6. The Leftist Press out to destroy us Again
EvilMedia ,   Jerusalem Israel   (05.21.12)
Another inflamitory article designed to defame and weaken Israel in the world,and cause more Jew hatred Ynet/Yediot and Haaretz our worst enemies
7. ???
yohanan ,   manchester, uk   (05.21.12)
What? Who is this "Rabbi" Uri Regev to speak so utrageously against a giant? First of all, Rav Steinman never said that eight billion of peoples are brainless thieves. But he is clearly comdaning the society around us where murder and evil-doing (rape, violence etc.) are common and sometimes even justified. Yes, he is completely right. Uri Regev, you are a little thing, go back to basics...
8. He hates 100% of the goyim and 99% of the Jews.
S.F. Stoner ,   Carmiel, Israel   (05.21.12)
9. Correction.....
David ,   Israel   (05.21.12)
......the rab is an idiot
10. There is a lot of prejudice here
Judah ,   Jerusalem   (05.21.12)
Very few responses. Had rav Ovadia said this , the board would be filled with hateful and and anti Shas comments.
11. to 1,2,3,4,5
Joseph ,   Switzerland   (05.21.12)
I am not sure that the article is accurate. In any case know that Rav Shteinmann has ruach hakodesh, can read the future like an open book, can see the mazal of am Israel. Go and gather first hand information before you judge. Who are you by the way?
12. why print this.
peter a ,   usa   (05.21.12)
13. A Lost Fool!
Jake Stone ,   USA   (05.21.12)
God bless, Israel; praying for the peace of Jerusalem! Christian Zionist
14. Aharon Yehuda Leib Shteinman said so...
deavman ,   Acco, Israel   (05.21.12)
Why should we care ?? Oh right in other words the world was not created for the likes of him. Seems legit.
15. Holy Torah Words, May The Rabbi Be Blessed!
Ariel Ben Yochanan ,   Kfar Tapuah, Efraim   (05.21.12)
16. Not Press Worthy
Yakov ,   Tel Aviv   (05.21.12)
How to deal with this kind of Bigotry? Don't publish it! This just gives them incentive. Please remove this article
17.  winning us still more friends...
Gabriel ,   Leiden, Netherlands   (05.21.12)
Not that I really care too much about that. What I do care about, is being called an illiterate for not studying Thora, by someone who's one and only expertise lies in studying holy manuscripts and nothing else, and who is pretty much an innocent of the entire literate, scientific, and academic world that lies beyond. I don't keep much of the Mitzvot (he can shove them) and the world doesn't seem to be the worse for it. Me neither by the way, since I am actually very happy. He does look decidedly unhealthy, by the way. Talk about devastation.
18. Rabbi s words sound barbaric ... .
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (05.21.12)
to outsiders,the same as would surgeons talking about amputation. Rabbi s are talking to Tora students who understand the meaning of their words. Which is to warn them not to leave Tora study. Given, the aim of Tora ,is to love your neighbour like yourself,provoking hatred can t be the Rabbi s intent . Secular and Orthodox Jews need to learn to understand each other better. The real G-D fearing Jews have their heart filled with love .They love EVERY Jew. The Rabbi,too.
19. Thank you very much
carlo ,   london/israel   (05.21.12)
for your great and highly positive PR on Israel and Judaism in general!! I am sure now thanks to hardcore rabbi's comments, people worldwide will intensify their love to Israel even more. What's going on? First Ovadia Yosef doesn't want non-Jews to get treated in hospitals on Sabbath and now him!?
20. Think
Sane ,   Manchester England#   (05.21.12)
Think carefully. He is not talking about indvidules, but of the nations as a whole. Think of the whole of Jewish history. Look how each nation under Nazi occupation joined in Jew-killing with a gusto. Think of all the murders in the west, which are multiplied by thousands in Africa. Think of Bosnia. Think of Rwanda. Think of the Turks with the Armenians Then tell me that the nations are not murderous.
21. The Rabbi has zero foresight, No ethics
Inetfraud ,   USA   (05.21.12)
What rabbi would be so foolish as to spew such intolerance without considering the ramifications? Where in Torah does it Teach us to be so hateful against the nations? Avraham Avinu is held to account for trying to find 10 worthy men in Sodom instead of 1. Sorry: I can find no connection to this man's behavior and the great tzadekkim and prophets. He revealed a very base level of intelligence. Regardless of his learning and cabalistic abilities (even vile people are given this ability), this 'speech' or rant is exceptionally foolish and this man is in dire need of doing t'shuva. Sad and very unsettling.
22. Brainless?
Nice Bloke ,   Rochdale, UK   (05.21.12)
No, you Rabbi, are the brainless one.
23. Hmmm - as I recal -
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (05.21.12)
The Torah was given to the Jews and the Descandant of Jacob, not to the Goyim. So - HASHEM can not demand from the Goyim what HE can demand from the Jews and Descandants of Jacob. The first comandment of HASHEM to love Him with Ones Whole Capasity, can therefore only be demanded from the Ones that have the Torah, and from nobody else because, HASHEM sees to the Heart of the Individual, and HE can not demand from sombody something that Individual does no have, that is the Torah. The Second comandment to love Ones Neighbour as Oneself, is therefore not either demanded from the Goyim, as in the same way as above. Arn.Sweden.
24. Oy veh !
Gabe ,   Canada   (05.21.12)
The dear Rabbi is generating more antisemites than observing Jews. Pity !
25. A Demented Old Fool
Bill Foonman ,   Jacksonville USA   (05.21.12)
This old fool needs to be put out to pasture for asinine comments like this.
26. No different to Ahmedinijad
Magpie 101   (05.21.12)
Absolutely no difference at all
27. This "rabbi" and Ora defending him NOT among those righteous
Israeili Jew ,   Israel   (05.21.12)
Leave it to perverse Haredim to make - or defend - such absurd, abominable and xenophobic remarks!
28. Like a football coach's pep talk
Naftush ,   Israel   (05.21.12)
No more momentous than that. Leave him alone.
29. #1 yigal
Maurice ,   Montreal   (05.21.12)
Yes but he doesn't run Israel, like the ayatollahs run Iran! Hateful racist idiots like this rabbi do not represent the main stream Jewish thought on human affairs. This guy is a total idiot representing a tiny minority of religious fanatics who have no place in the 21st century!
30. Words fail me..........
Mike Carmel ,   Rishon le Zion   (05.21.12)
Welcome to the Israel of the future.
