Israeli singer Tzvika Pick found dead in his home at 72

 

Israeli singer and songwriter Svika Pick has been found dead in his home at the age of 72. His family became concerned after he suddenly broke contact with them several hours previously and decided to investigate.

Many of Israel's senior figures have paid their respects to the departed artist. President Isaac Herzog commented: "Svika Pick renewed the Israeli cultural landscape and created a revolutionary change in it. His music penetrated hearts and became an inseparable part of the soundtrack of our lives. His extraordinary talent as a creator yielded beautiful pearls to Israeli culture. He was so Israeli and connected deeply to our rich Hebrew roots, and at the same time reflected the beauty of the face of the State of Israel in the whole world. His voice and melodies will continue to play in our loving ears for years to come. My condolences to his family and his many loved ones. May he rest in peace."

Israeli Yated States That Gedoilim Choose Candidates Based on What's Good for Klall Yisrael and not because of personal "Negios"

 


It would be an "Aveirah" to let the following pass without making any comments.!

The Israeli Yated Ne'eman want us to believe that the  Roshei Yeshivas and Chassidishe Rabbanim should be trusted in their selection of candidates for the Knesset because they do not have any "personal biases" and they are choosing them based on what's good for the tzibbur and it is therefore imperative that the public go along with their recommendations and not speak against their handpicked candidates. 

What Yated Ne'eman cannot explain is how is it that the Rebbe of Gur chooses a representative for his chassidus, the Rebbe of Belz chooses a representative for his Chassidim, the Rebbe of Viznitz chooses a  Viznitz chasid , as for the Litvishe,the Kaniewski followers chose their own candidates, and the followers of Rabbi Gershon Eidelstein choose their own people, and all this happens without 'personal biases', everything is supposedly done as what is "best for klall Yisrael,"

Message to you guys:

Stop lying! We are not stupid!

All the Roshei Yeshivois and Chassidishe Rebbes, every single one of them, choose candidates based on what is best for their own communities and they do not base it on what's best for the general tzibbur. Absolutely!

I'll give you one example, in Ger, their representative was Litzman who entered the Knesset in 1999. Was Litzman the best candidate for the Jewish people? He was chosen by Ger because he was a Gerrer Chusid. If he were a Sadigere Chusid, the Gerer Rebbe would have chosen another candidate. The Gerer Rebbe did not choose Litzman because he was the best for the tzibbur. Proof? 

When Litzman was forced to resign because he was indicted, the Rebbe immediately replaced him with Goldknup a shady guy, but that didn't matter as Goldknup is a Gerer. 

The truth is that it is only natural for every Torah leader to choose someone who follows their personal viewpoint. 

But stop telling us is that the candidates chosen, were chosen without any "negiois" without any biases, and this is what is best for Klall Yisrael. this isn't true, it's a lie and no one is falling for it!

The Biden/Satmars "fool's errands" to negotiate with the Iranian Mullahs


 Back in 2015 we wrote about Ezra Friedlander's perfidy writing an op-ed on TheYeshivaworld news blog supporting the Iran deal 

In the same year, 2015, both feuding Satmar Brothers wrote editorials in their weekly yiddish newspapers also supporting the Iran deal, knowing full well that Iran vowed to destroy Israel. 

How did we let them get away with these awful blood libels against the State of Israel, when the Israeli leadership was constantly warning the world against the Iranian murderers?

Why were we silent?

 It's been 6 years and Iran is stepping up its game and becoming more and more dangerous. Yet, Satmar that is ראש וראשון in condemning the Zionist regime for every imagined sin, remains quiet even though over 7 million Jews live there now. It would have been decent for the feuding brothers to unite and come out with a statement to their own followers stating that they made a grave error vis-vis Iran and support their own brothers and sisters that are the target of these vicious "amaleikim," and just like they had their followers write the treasonous letters supporting Obama and his antisemitic deal with the Iranians, they should ask their chassidim to write thousands of letters to the old demented fool, Biden!

 This would give us who live in Israel "Chizuk" but no, they are busy with the internet and long shaitlach. Crazy!

The latest reports that Iranian leaders celebrated the brutal stabbing of Salman Rushdie are yet more proof that President Biden is on a fool’s errand in trying to rejoin the Iranian nuclear deal.

“The Iranian state-owned FARS News called Rushdie an ‘apostate’ who has ‘insulted the Prophet of Islam,’ ” the Washington Examiner writes. 

The Daily Mail reports that a media chief close to the Supreme Leader called the attacker “courageous” and added: “Let us kiss the hands of the one who tore the neck of the enemy of God with a knife.”


Raid Narrative Falling Apart – Trump Had Standing Order To Declassify Documents

 

Another anti-Trump hoax is falling apart.

Donald Trump’s team has now confirmed that Trump had a “standing order” which immediately declassified materials he would take to the residence so he could work at night.

Trump’s team said that this means any documents that were taken to Mar-A-Lago would have been declassified.

Donald Trump’s office told Just the News on Friday that the classified materials the FBI seized from his Mar-a-Lago estate were declassified under a “standing order” while he was president that allowed him to take sensitive materials to the White House residence at night to keep working.

The official statement is likely to become the focus of the president’s legal defense as the FBI and Biden Justice Department investigate whether he stole records covered under the Presidential Records Act or mishandled classified materials under the Espionage Act, allegations included in a search warrant released by a federal court in Florida on Friday.

Old City Terrorist Surrenders at Police Station

 

 The terrorist who shot up the #3 bus and a car outside the Old City of Jerusalem last night near the Kotel, wounding 8 people, including a pregnant woman and her unborn child, gave himself up to police at around 8 AM on Sunday at the Moriah police station.

The 26-year-old terrorist, an Israeli-Arab citizen living in eastern Jerusalem, arrived at the police station by taxi. He turned himself in along with his weapon.

The taxi driver said he picked up the terrorist near Sharei Tzedek Medical Center. It is unknown at this point how the terrorist traversed the city from the terror scene to the hospital.

Police had held a massive manhunt for him in the Silwan neighborhood outside the Old City. Police arrested the terrorist’s family during the search.

Having been arrested alive, the terrorist will receive a guaranteed monthly salary from the Palestinian Authority and be able to study for advance college degrees while in an Israeli prison.

Eight injured, including two seriously, in shooting attack at a bus just outside the Kotel ..Four are from Williamsburg

According to a report, four of the injured are Satmar Chasidim from the United States.

Eight people were injured, including two seriously, in a shooting attack near the Old City of Jerusalem on Saturday night.

According to initial reports, two terrorists apparently fired at a bus and fled the scene.

According to Magen David Adom, the incident took place in two different locations - on HaShalom Street near the Old City of Jerusalem, and at the entrance to the King David's Tomb parking lot.

MDA paramedics provided medical treatment to the victims and evacuated them to hospitals. Among the seriously injured victims are a pregnant woman in her 30s and a tourist from the United States.

The director of the trauma unit at Shaare Zedek Hospital, Dr. Alon Schwartz, updated on Sunday morning that the pregnant woman who was seriously injured had an emergency delivery of her baby, and that the newborn is in serious but stable condition.

Another person is hospitalized in serious condition at Shaare Zedek, and four others in light condition remain hospitalized in the emergency room.

Local residents are reporting seeing security forces searching for the terrorists in the eastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan.

Police initially blocked the exits from the Western Wall plaza and the crowd was unable to leave the area. Later, worshipers were permitted to leave.

MDA Senior EMT Nehemia Katz and MDA Paramedic David Trachtenberg said: "We were on scene very quickly. On Ma'ale Hashalom St. we saw a passenger bus standing in the middle of the road, bystanders called us to treat two males around 30 years old who were on the bus with gunshot wounds. They were fully conscious and walking with wounds to the upper body. We provided them with lifesaving treatment and were taken to hospital by MDA ambulances that had arrived at the scene."

"From there we went to the King David's Tomb parking area and found 4 males, one aged 50 and three aged 30, all fully conscious and with gunshot wounds. A few moments later the MDA ATV brought us another victim, a woman in her 30s with gunshot wounds. We provided lifesaving treatment to the victims and conveyed them urgently to hospitals, with 2 in serious condition and 5 in mild to moderate condition."

The mayor of Jerusalem, Moshe Lion, commented on the shooting attack.

"I trust the Israel Police and security forces to lay their hands on the despicable terrorist tonight. Jerusalem is stronger than any event and we will not allow any terrorist to harm the routine of life in the public sphere. The capital of Israel will continue to be a city full of life, joy and vitality," he said.


Sarah Muscroft a UN official Demoted after tweeting support for Israel

 

A United Nations (UN) official has been demoted after posting a tweet condemning "indiscriminate rocket fire of Islamic Jihad provoking Israel retaliation."

Sarah Muscroft, who had held a senior position in the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, provoked a wave of online controversy with her tweet, during which she praised the ceasefire that marked the end of Operation Breaking Dawn.

The Times of Israel reports that she later published a retraction reading: "One of my previous tweets was ill-informed and I have deleted it. I sincerely apologize for my poor judgment. All civilians — everywhere — must be able to live in peace," which proved insufficient to assuage those accusing her of failing to hold Israel responsible for the damages caused in the operation. She has since deleted her account entirely.

Requests for comment have been answered with an automated message that Muscroft is on leave. Officials from her office commented that she "will be assigned a new role."

i24 News reports that Israeli officials, who wished to remain anonymous, had been aware of the incident and followed it "with great interest," and called it an illustration of UN "hypocrisy" towards Israel.

Aaron Tadlin .. a lesson for all of us ..No He wasn't a rebbe or a Rosh Yeshvah


 Aaron Yadlin passed away last week . Yadlin was a former Israeli Knesset member for the Ma'arach, known today as the Labor party. He was extremely popular, rising to the position of Education Minister. 

However, while serving in that position, he suddenly resigned.


Why? 

Yadlin was a kibbutz member.  His kibbutz decided that the time had come for him to do a rotation in the kibbutz industries, starting off as a dish washer (yes, a dish washer). 

Yadlin accepted the decision and left his position as one of the most powerful people in the Israeli political world to because a simple worker.

May his memory be a blessing.

Ezra Friedlander thinks a "newly constructed wall" in Liska is a place to "daven'

They say that "truth is far better than fiction." You cannot make this stuff up!

A couple of Liska Chassidim (they only have a "couple") constructed a brand-new wall in a town that murdered its Jews, and they want you to spend your hard-earned money not to "chas ve'sholom" take a trip to the "wall"in Yerushalyim, that is over two thousand years old, and where millions of people pour their broken hearts out, but to an abandoned town in Poland whose residents shipped innocent men, women and children to their deaths!

This Ezra is the guy on Nadler's payroll that voted for the Iran deal, a deal giving murderers a license to fulfill their dangerous vow to "wipe Israel off the map" 
Now he wants you to go to a "newly constructed wall"

Rumor has it that the those doing their pilgrimage to Kretsier and Uman are running scared that this new wall will take away much of their crowds. 


Chassidim Make up a new "minhag" vis-vis Tu Be'Ov

 



 

4-year-old Chareidie Jerusalem boy choked by 20-year-old relative

 

A 4-year-old boy from Jerusalem was hospitalized in critical condition Saturday, with police arresting a family member on suspicion of choking him.

Police were treating the case as a suspected murder.

The boy, a resident of Jerusalem’s Ramot neighborhood, was rushed to the city’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center after suspected choke marks were found on his neck. Paramedics were trying to resuscitate him.

Police said officers sent to Ramot to investigate the incident arrested one of the boy’s relatives, who is in his 20s.

Citing an initial probe, police said the boy did not respond this morning to the calls of family members. After the father was called home from synagogue, the family noticed the suspect’s door was locked and broke into his room, where they found the boy lying on the floor, according to police.

Police said officers sent to Ramot to investigate the incident arrested one of the boy’s relatives, who is in his 20s.

According to reports, the suspect suffers from mental illness.

“The investigation is ongoing,” a police statement said.

‘Save Maimonides’ group gets 1,000 complaints about hospital care

 


Care at Maimonides Medical Center in Borough Park has gotten so bad that one dad said his wife had to practically deliver their baby on her own.

The mom rang the call bell three times without response at the understaffed hospital last month, as she felt the baby about to arrive, said the Borough Park man who did not want to be identified.

“She started yelling, ‘Go get a nurse. The baby’s coming out, the baby’s coming out!’ ” the man recalled.

By the time his mother-in-law, who was in the hospital room with the couple, was able to get help, the baby was half-way out, he said.

“The nurse came, she was all shocked,” the dad said.

The baby was healthy but “things could have gone very, very wrong,” he added.

Liz Cheney’s husband is a partner at the law firm defending Hunter Biden

 

Wyoming GOP Rep. Liz Cheney’s husband is a partner at the law firm now representing Hunter Biden.

Philip Perry has worked at Latham & Watkins since 2007, and focuses on white collar cases, commercial and Supreme Court litigation, according to his company biography.

Another Latham partner, Chris Clark, has been representing Hunter Biden since December 2020 — but Cheney’s husband’s involvement at the firm had not been previously known.

Latham is a Democratic powerhouse, with company attorneys and other employees donating more than half a million dollars to President Biden’s 2020 campaign, Federal Election Commission records show. Clark himself ponied up $3,800.

Clark’s work for the first son is prominently displayed on his company profile, which notes his representation of Hunter in a “grand jury investigation regarding tax issues.”

The firm’s close ties to the Democratic party have come under scrutiny in the past.

On his first day in office, with a Justice Department probe of Hunter in full swing, President Biden appointed Nicholas McQuaid, another Latham partner, to lead the Justice Department’s criminal division — earning a written rebuke from Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin).

Cheney, who was first elected to the state’s only House seat in 2016, saw her political popularity at home tank after she became a ferocious Trump critic and voted to impeach the former president.

The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney is widely expected to lose a primary next week to challenger Harriet Hageman who has been endorsed by both Trump and House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy.

Garland must reveal more, otherwise this Trump raid looks like a nothingburger

 

We’re going to need to see everything.

We now know more about the search of Mar-a-Lago, and, of course, it has settled absolutely nothing.

 Reporting on the documents taken from former President Donald Trump’s property — as well as the release of the search warrant by the judge who approved it — has filled in some more outlines of the story, although there is too much we still don’t know.

The quagmire underlines what seems, at the very least, the unbelievable imprudence of the search.

YeshivaWorld Blog Puts its Logo On Trump Search Warrant

 


The Search Warrant that the FBI obtained to search Trump's home is a public document, that any "yukel" with a minimum of technical knowledge can obtain with two clicks with his mouse.

All of the news sites have it without a "logo" but the yeshivishe blog put a logo on it so that their "oilim goilim" readers will think this was exclusive to them.

New York Times columnist David Brooks fears the FBI raid will ‘re-elect Donald Trump’

 




The New York Times columnist David Brooks worried Thursday the FBI's raid of former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home will help his chances of electoral victory in 2024. 

Brooks further argued Trump's main message is that societal elites are ruining America, and that there is a lot of truth in that. "Why is Donald Trump so powerful?" Brooks asked. "How did he come to dominate one of the two major parties and get himself elected president?" He answered that it's Trump's "narratives" and "powerful stories that ring true to tens of millions of Americans," the main one being "that America is being ruined by corrupt coastal elites."

"According to this narrative, there is an interlocking network of highly educated Americans who make up what the Trumpians have come to call the Regime: Washington power players, liberal media, big foundations, elite universities, woke corporations. These people are corrupt, condescending and immoral and are looking out only for themselves," he wrote.

He continued, "They are out to get Trump because Trump is the person who stands up to them. They are not only out to get Trump; they are out to get you."

Brooks admitted that "this narrative has a core of truth to it" and "highly educated metropolitan elites have become something of a self-enclosed Brahmin class." He argued, however, that "the Trumpian propaganda turns what is an unfortunate social chasm into venomous conspiracy theory."

"Trump’s political career has been kept afloat by elite scorn. The more elites scorn him, the more Republicans love him," Brooks wrote. 

He argued that the FBI's raid of Trump's residence has united the Republican Party. "Several weeks ago, about half of Republican voters were ready to move on from Trump, according to a New York Times/Siena College poll. This week the entire party seemed to rally behind him," Brooks wrote.

However, Brooks' characterization of the GOP and Trump's standing in it prior to the raid is not consistent with the vast majority of polls, which according to the current Real Clear Politics average, show Trump having a 27.8 percent lead over the next potential primary challenger. Trump-endorsed candidates have also been achieving key wins in primaries across the country, reaffirming his grip on the Republican Party

The Times columnist also expressed concern that the FBI raid would make Republicans more likely to vote in the 2022 midterm elections. "According to a Trafalgar Group/Convention of States Action survey, 83 percent of likely Republican voters said the F.B.I. search made them more motivated to vote in the 2022 elections," Brooks wrote.

Brooks said that he feared the prosecution and imprisonment of Trump during an election would constitute "the most likely path to a complete democratic breakdown."

Trump is leading President Joe Biden in a potential 2024 rematch, according to the Real Clear Politics polling average. Many Republicans and even some Democrats, have argued that the FBI's raid against Trump appears politically motivated.

Deep State Infighting: DOJ Fingers FBI for Mar-a-Lago Raid Disaster

 

Senior U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) officials are blaming FBI Director Christopher Wray for the recent raid of former President Donald Trump’s home in an apparent attempt to take pressure off U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland.

After Trump confirmed the FBI raided Mar-a-Lago on Monday, many Republican politicians called on both Wray and Garland to explain the justification for the raid.

For example, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, said, “Merrick Garland, Chris Wray, come to the House Judiciary Committee this Friday and answer our questions about this action today, which has never happened in American history.”

Similarly, House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) called out the DOJ’s “intolerable state of weaponized politicization” and told Garland to “preserve your documents and clear your calendar” as he pledged an investigation into the FBI raid if the Republicans take control of the House after November’s midterms.

Even Rep. Peter Meijer (R-MI), who voted to impeach Trump after the January 6 Capitol Riots, said Wray and Garland “owe transparency on the justification for setting such a striking precedent.”

Leftist Washington Post Tweets "Garland Vowed to depoliticize Justice. Then the FBI Searched Mar-a-Lago".... then deletes it


 The Washington Post deleted a tweet promoting one of its stories on Wednesday that suggested Attorney General Merrick Garland “politicized” the Department of Justice by authorizing an FBI raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate.

“Garland vowed to depoliticize Justice. Then the FBI searched Mar-a-Lago,” read the headline of a story written by Justice Department reporter Perry Stein.

The headline in the tweet sparked outrage on Twitter, which apparently prompted the Jeff Bezos-owned broadsheet to remove the tweet and re-post it using a different headline.

“No, he’s in the middle of unraveling a crime spree committed by the former president of the United States. There…fixed it for you,” one Twitter user wrote.

“This is so embarrassing I worry for the future of journalism,” another Twitter commenter said of the original headline.

Texans Fed Up with Illegal Border Crossings send busloads of immigrants to New York and other Leftist States, and they are not happy

 

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott tapped into his inner “Dirty Harry” on Wednesday and publicly dared Mayor Eric Adams to “make my day” by carrying through on his threat to send New Yorkers to campaign against his re-election bid.

Abbott also vowed to keep sending busloads of asylum-seekers to New York City, saying Adams was merely “getting a taste” of what beleaguered border communities have been dealing with in the Lone Star State since President Biden took office.

Abbott’s comments on Fox News came amid his ongoing feud with Adams over migrant relocations and just hours after three charter buses hired by Abbott dropped off nearly 100 migrants outside the Port Authority terminal in Midtown Manhattan.

The transports added to almost 70 who arrived on Friday and Sunday.

In response to Adams’ threat Tuesday that he was “deeply contemplating taking a busload of New Yorkers to go to Texas and do some good, old-fashioned door-knocking” against Abbott, the Republican governor said, “You know, I kind of feel like Clint Eastwood.”

“Go ahead, mayor. Make my day,” he said.

Republicans Must "Drain the Swamp" Otherwise We are all Doomed!

 



This week’s unprecedented FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home is just one more reason Republicans must fight harder to reform a politicized and powerful bureaucracy.

For three years, the bogus Russia-collusion conspiracy theory helped derail Trump’s presidency, but the problem wasn’t just the lies of his Democratic foes and their media cheerleaders. The willingness of FBI agents and Department of Justice officials to pursue that partisan plot demonstrated that the idea these agencies are staffed by apolitical civil servants is a myth.

Though Attorney General Merrick Garland probably ordered the banana-republic-style effort to treat a former president and likely future political foe like a criminal, the willingness of civil servants to go along with it made it possible.

The travesty demonstrates anew the importance of reforming the civil service. Laws that were intended to ensure those who hold government jobs aren’t playing politics are instead protecting a status quo in which Democrats can count on bureaucrats to aid them and sabotage Republicans.

The “deep state” is no right-wing myth. While administrations come and go, the more than 2 million people who work for the federal government are largely immovable objects who cannot be fired except for cause and, as the Obama-era IRS scandal (among other incidents) indicated, not always then either.


Lois Lerner and other federal civil-service employees targeting conservative nonprofits exposed just how tight the Democrats’ grip on the administrative state is. And the fact that many IRS employees involved were able to stay in their jobs showed how hard it is to get rid of such people. That problem was also illustrated (so to speak) when a top-level Environmental Protection Agency employee was able to keep his job for years despite having thousands of pornographic files on his computer.

In the late 1800s, reformers like the young Teddy Roosevelt wanted to end the “spoils system” and make the civil service an apolitical body. The goal was to take politics and the potential for corruption out of the government. But in the 21st century, the system has created a different problem that threatens democracy.

For decades, the federal service has increasingly become a bastion for liberal Democrats. Every study shows that its members are almost uniformly on the left. To give just one example: 95% of federal bureaucrats who donated to a candidate in the 2016 presidential election gave to Hillary Clinton.

The Democrats’ grip on bureaucrats’ loyalties means these employees can stall and ultimately derail any attempt by conservatives to implement policies they don’t like. That was particularly problematic for a president like Trump, who didn’t want to play by the conventional rules set down by liberal “experts.”

Presidents are allowed to make 4,000 political appointments to government posts with about 1,200 of those subject to Senate confirmation. But 50,000 bureaucrats have decision-making authority over policy issues.

This “deep state” can be of enormous assistance to Democrats as they seek to transform government and the economy to conform to their ideological agenda. Republicans who want to drain the DC swamp, on the other hand, are faced with an unelected and unaccountable civil service that acts as an extra-constitutional fourth branch of government with an effective veto over elected politicians’ policies.

That’s why a growing number of Republicans realize that if they are to accomplish anything the next time they win the White House, they’re going to have to reform the civil service. A so-called “Schedule F” plan brought forward in the waning days of the Trump presidency — and a topic of discussion again — proposed changing the status of those 50,000-bureaucrat decision-makers from unfireable civil servant to worker serving at the pleasure of the president.

Liberals are slamming is as a step toward a Trumpist authoritarian regime, but it’s actually the opposite. It is long past time to strip this caste of partisan Democrat bureaucrats of their power and replace them, if need be, with people approved by someone whose power stems from the voters’ democratic will.

The worst corruption in Washington is the ability of those with lifetime tenure and no legal mandate to thwart the verdict of democracy as they tried to do after 2016 or, as we saw in Mar-a-Lago, act as accomplices to the politicization of justice. Whoever leads the GOP in 2024 must prioritize this plan and truly drain the swamp.

The Dramatic Moment a Saudi Ambassador Gives a Speech, Collapses And Drops Dead

 


Saudi Arabian Ambassador Muhammad Al-Qahtani died yesterday during his speech at the Arab-African conference in Cairo, capital of Egypt. The cause of death is unknown. He simply dropped dead, as you’ll see below.

The last words he said were about Egyptian President Abdel Fattah. “The dean of men and a man of peace,” said Al-Qahtani, before collapsing and dying.

The events were documented on tape. In the clip, you’ll observe how the diplomat falls to the ground as he delivered his speech from a podium.

Dozens of people watched in astonishment at the death of the Saudi ambassador.

Is the best yet to come?
