1. talmudic geniuses
zivron   (11.20.12)
THESE rabbis advised their people not to flee to the soviet union prophesying the nazis were better and then hiched rides to safety leaving women and children to their deaths . And the SATMAR GENIUS SAVED BY collaborator KASTNER GOT OUT IN TIME BUT NOT HIS FOLLOWERS
2. From Hamas' point of view
Michael ,   Haifa   (11.20.12)
Why waste rockets on anti-Zionists ?
3. Rabbinic Dome
Concerned   (11.20.12)
Why spend money on Iron Dome when you have the Rabbinic one!
4. How about telling his "students" to enlist in the IDF
David ,   Haifa, IL   (11.20.12)
Or let me guess they are to busy praying for our souls.
5. Two reasons
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (11.20.12)
in 1991 it was a good luck , today it will be the Iron Drome and the IDF .
6. #1 is correct
dbnnet   (11.20.12)
Zivron is correct, it rates as one of the biggest scandals of modern Jewish history - These talmudic geniuses caused thousands of unnecessary deaths due to their arrogance & stupidity. The problem also stems from their followers being unable to think for themselves (as they still to this day are unable to do)!
7. sad
yerushalayim   (11.20.12)
It's a sad day when the first 5 comments are written with such emnity. R' Chaim shlit"a learns Torah and does chessed all day everyday. It says on the website that incitement, slander,etc. won't be published so I would like to know how the above comments were published.
8. What's the problem?
withheld ,   Copenhagen, Denmark   (11.20.12)
I don't see the issue, if he feels or knows that nothing will happen to Bnei Brak, it's his right to do so. When you all jump to conclusion and judge the man for something he didn't say, it speaks more about you than him
9. superstitious none sense!
ej ,   tlv   (11.20.12)
i can't believe these people believe such foolishtik
10. A Great Rabbi
elan ,   netanya   (11.20.12)
The Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky is a very great man. His wife, of blessed memory, helped me and my family tremendously. Thank G-d that we have such righteous people praying for us.
11. #9 Don't believe it but fact stays fact
Israeli   (11.20.12)
Have you ever heard of a bomb landing in Bnei Brak?
12. 11 - No bomb landed in Kufr Kassem, good Rabbi there too?
Avi   (11.20.12)
13. #7 Their motto is: If you can't join them, fight them.
Israeli   (11.20.12)
Simply bitter people. It's their way to cover up their jealousy of religious Torah Jews. Haven't you noticed these talkbackers whenever any Rabbi says something?
14. Right on number one!
Rich ,   Toronto, Canada   (11.20.12)
No one should take the words of these Rabbis seriously. They mislead Jews in the past and they can do it again.
15. And What Happened in WW2?
leo ,   nyc   (11.20.12)
Hassidim were all exempt????
16. Bnei Brak
eddie ,   London UK   (11.20.12)
is out of range of gaza, as is central tel aviv let's hope his blessing applies to all of Israel
17. #12 Is "Kufr Kassem" Bnei Brak?
Dov   (11.20.12)
Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky is talking about Bnei Brak and Bnei Brak only.
18. really sad
chaya ,   central holy land   (11.20.12)
that people cannot respect other people's view. personally, i believe the fact that our casualties are limited inspite of the thousands rockets shot at us is G-d's miracle. those who think otherwise, i respect you. but to belittle an old person (never mind if he's a great rabbi) who has gone thru life a lot, is really of low morals. we are at dangerous time why can't we just get along.
19. 17 Then how do you explain Kufr Kassem not getting bombed??
Avi   (11.20.12)
20. #1 and other big moths
Dov   (11.20.12)
When you or your family have problems you run to these Rabbis for a bracha. Don't say it's not true because we always see those extreme anti-religious visiting these Rabbis when they're in need of his help.
21. don't trust a naked bus driver,
chaim ,   beer sheva   (11.20.12)
woody allen
22. Perhaps the Iron Dome in the Tel Aviv area
jason white ,   afula, israel   (11.20.12)
can be reprogrammed? Have bnei brek listed as an empty field.
23. Rabbi Try selling this BS to my very religious IDF sons
Al   (11.20.12)
They serve in the front lines...They wear their payos and short beards. They can learn with the best of you and they are ready to defend the likes of you and your lazy ass moochers without hesitation. You see there are those who do and then there are those that are full of shit. You Sir and your followers are full of shit and quite frankly you disgust me. However I would still defend your lives till such time that I would try you for treason.
24. Number 15. World War II
Sherlock Holmes ,   London England   (11.20.12)
The Nazis took North Africa, but never crossed the boundary into Eretz Yisrael. A generation earlier when the Chofetz Chaim foretold the Holocaust to come, the Ponovez Rav Joseph Kahanaman asked the Chofetz Chaim where to build his yeshivah. The Chofetz Chaim said the Holocaust will not extend to Eretz Yisrael. Rav Kahanaman then began to build his yeshivah in Bnei Braq.
25. #19 Where is Kufr Kassem?
Dov   (11.20.12)
There are probably many cities that didn't get bombed. But Rabbi Kanievsky was only talking about Bnei Brak that will "never" get bombed.
26. 25 I''ll bet Kufr Kassem will "never" be bombed either
Avi   (11.20.12)
Rabbi or no Rabbi.
27. NK make even the most radical haredi look tame
zionist forever   (11.20.12)
Nk are the lowest of the low and whilst the call themselves orthodox Jews they don't act it. They hold protests on Shabbat sometimes so instead of spending the morning praying they are out carrying banners to protest against Israel. They throw their shoes like Muslims do. The ones we are unufortunate enough to have in Israel on YomHashoa which is a day to remember the Holocaust not an Israeli day as soon as the sirens start they start burning flags and celebrating. In 2008 there was an attack against a Chabad House in Mumbai and people died. Everybody else in the world offered condolences but NK sent a scathing letter to Chabad saying they brought the attack on themselves for letting their zionist friends stay in their centres and calling them heretics. They go visit Ahmadinejad and all Israel's other enemies and act like best buddies. NK belong in Gaza where their Hamas friends can teach them how to fire rockets into the zionist entity that neither believe has a right to exist.
28. Iron dome versus Kanievsky Torah dome
Tayfun_Turkey ,   Istanbul   (11.20.12)
What about WW II do you thinks no jews shall be killed? Possibly he is not aware of WWII passed!
29. 23 Al ,Behave !
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (11.20.12)
30. #5, call it good luck, but its a fascinating story
Jake ,   USA   (11.20.12)
The Chazon Ish of Blessed memory, promised Bnei Brak that if they banned movie theaters, they would never be hit by terrorism. In 1991 a scud missile landed very close to Bnei Brak, and upon investigation it was found that the missile landed right outside the city line. To this day Bnei Brak hasn't been hit by terrorism. Call it good luck if you wish..
