1. Respect for Ha'Rambam, the Haredi who worked & served.
Michael ,   California, USA   (12.15.18)
He worked very hard and died prematurely from exhaustion and the lack of sleep. Maybe he contributed something to Judaism if he made the religion relevant to community life in his era. Most importantly though, he was an enlightened man who studied a profession and used his practical knowledge to help heal the sick. If Israel and IDF had existed then, Ha'Rambam would never look for excuses to serve in the military. He would find a beneficial use to his religion.
2. Rambam had to use Arabic not Primitive Hebrew in his wrtings
Khalid Amayreh ,   Occupied Jerusalem   (12.15.18)
-a language spoken by 500 million and understood by another 1300 million people- which the primitive Zionist state is trying to ban
3. MR
Eliyahu Kitov ,   safed   (12.15.18)
Great Post.Abslutely fab: Can't journalism post our ancient history stuff more often. Its not upsetting and it does give all of us at least some sense of belonging to history.
4. Khalix, you're muttering much untruth!
Steve Benassi ,   Duluth, MN USA   (12.16.18)
Israel, the only democracy in the middle east, recently granted special recognition to Arabic, and as you know, most of the signage in Israel is IN Hebrew and Arabic, as are all government forms, banking forms etc. Your claim that Israel is trying to ban Arabic is blatantly untrue

5. â€śMaimonides wrote his books in Hebrew letters but in Arabic
Khalid Amayreh ,   Occupied Jerusalem   (12.16.18)
his book "a guide for the perplexed" was in Arabic
6. Maimonides, Ha'Rambam
C   (12.16.18)
he honors us with his unique achievements in numerous fields.
in particular, he honors us with his disputations and theological works.
he honors us with his name and very being, a being that kept alive
the jewish nation and the love of zion.
he was not one to convert to a foreign religion. rather, he went back
to his roots, the laws of moses.
he was a towering figure who passed to us the very essence of judaism.
7. Best Book on Maimonides/Rambam
Shlomo Ezagui ,   Palm Beach Gardens   (12.17.18)
the only book where you can get the most accurate picture of Maimonides perspective to life IN HIS OWN WORDS.
