FakeNews! Lihi Lapid not a Messianic Jew.


Lihi Lapid, wife of Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid, is pushing back on claims she is a messianic Jew.

Rumors that Mrs. Lapid is secretly affiliated with a Christian church began circulating on the internet last week, after a video by messianic Jewish preacher Chaim Malespin went viral.

In the video, Malespin claimed that Lihi Lapid “is a believer [in Jesus].”

“We’re in a time with more congregations, more openness to the Gospel. Even the government, the Prime Minister’s wife, is a believer right now… Yair Lapid’s wife, Lihi, is a believer.”

“Like what? This is, what? I mean a confirmed believer. This is crazy stuff going on right now in Israel. Hallelujah! Yeah, we’re living in exciting times.”

After Malespin’s video went viral, Mrs. Lapid’s personal website,, was hacked, with references to Christianity added.

In addition, Lihi Lapid’s Wikipedia page was edited to reference the rumor that she is a practicing, Christian.

“Her and her family are christians belonging to the messianic church,” the addition read.

Shortly afterwards, the Wikipedia entry was edited, removing the claim, and Lihi Lapid’s website taken down.

A spokesperson for Mrs. Lapid told the London-based Jewish Chronicle that that “Lihi Lapid's website was blocked after it had been hacked and used to spread fake news.”

A spokesperson for Prime Minister Lapid’s Yesh Atid party pushed back on the rumor, calling it “nothing short of ridiculous.”

“Somebody said something that is not true. This is the situation. It’s not true. It’s a lie. I don’t know why he said that. I don’t know what his interest is. I don’t know. But it’s a lie.”

Malespin later issued a video statement walking back his claims and issued an apology.

Yair Lapid’s Wife Lihia Believe In The Christian Messiah?


A number of disturbing clips claim that Lihia Lapid, wife of Israeli prime minister Yair Lapid, believes in the New Testament and Jesus.

 The clips also refer to Lapid’s facebook page, in which a missionary claimed to have seen her at a rally for believers in Jesus. Lapid’s page erased this information but a title remained there stating that “Jesus is definitely on the other side.” 

Lihia Lapid, whose great-grandfather Rabbi Amiel was the rabbi of Tel Aviv, has denied the claims that she believes in Jesus as “ridiculous”. However the title remained on her Facebook page

Missionary claims Lihia Lapid also believes in Jesus.

Recently after Lapid’s sister-in-law Ila’il Keren was appointed as JNF director it was revealed that she and her husband had been members of a Messianic Jews group.

In the past Yair Lapid has also said that “My ancestral lineage includes Moshe Rabbeinu, Jesus and the Rambam.”

Iranians knock turbans off clerics' heads in a show of contempt amid hijab protests




Chinese intelligence officials infiltrated the Biden family, ..Entire Investigations Against Trump was to Hide the Elephant in the Room...Biden's Chinese Connections


by Michael Goodwin 

To announce charges in three cases against foreign operatives working in the United States, Justice Department officials held a press conference last week that recalled the Red Scare days of the 1950s. This time, the alleged Communist evil doers are Chinese, not Russians.

Attorney General Merrick Garland, FBI director Christopher Wray and others adopted a striking anti-China tone in describing a level of venality.

They are willing to “lie, cheat and steal their way to dominance,” Wray said, pointing to criminal cases involving agriculture, academia, green technology and governments.

Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco, citing evidence that bribes were offered to obtain inside information about Justice’s investigation of Huawei, the Chinese telecommunications giant, said the case “shows the interconnection between . . . intelligence officers and Chinese companies.”

After the officials talked in this hostile manner for nearly 30 minutes, reporters asked questions about details. But there were no questions or any comments from officials about the elephant in the room.

Said elephant being the fact that the family of the president of the United States had deals with a Chinese bank and a Chinese energy firm that were nearly identical to the pattern the officials had just called a national security threat. Yet no one dared to mention the obvious similarity.

The see-no-evil moment underscores the lack of seriousness in much of Washington about the near certainty that President Biden is compromised by his family’s lucrative relationship with agents of the Chinese government.

Tony Bobulinski is clear-eyed about the facts and believes the danger is greater than initially estimated. The former partner of Hunter and Jim Biden in the infamous deal with CEFC, the Chinese energy giant, Bobulinski now believes the effort by a string of Chinese business leaders to hook up with the Bidens was more than just a “political or influence investment,” as he once described it.

“I believe Chinese intelligence officials infiltrated the Biden family,” he told me last week. “And I think eventually the FBI and Justice Department will peel it back and realize this was a Chinese intel operation.”

The distinction is significant because of the stakes. Bobulinski, who two years ago said Joe Biden was the “big guy” slated to get a secret 10% cut in a deal with CEFC, credits his conclusion to what he calls “aggregating all the data points.”

Based on what he saw firsthand, what was on Hunter Biden’s laptop and the disappearance of most of the Chinese officials who paid millions of dollars to the Biden family, Bobulinski now believes there is “a zero chance that all this is random.”

Indeed, the idea that the targeting of the Bidens during Joe’s years as vice president was a Chinese intelligence operation is the only explanation that makes sense. The target was too big, the effort too extensive for it to be anything else.

GOP Senators Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson appear to be reaching a similar conclusion. They recently sent more than 200 bank documents from their probe of the Biden family to the US Attorney in Delaware who is ostensibly leading the federal probe of Hunter Biden that seems to be going nowhere.

The documents, the senators wrote, focus on “the Biden family’s connections to the Chinese regime and persons connected to its military and intelligence elements.”

Johnson told Fox News evidence the president is compromised is “hiding in plain sight.”

Broadly speaking, all of China’s spy network, cyber intrusions and theft of technology and business secrets undercut America and advance China’s aim of global domination.

National-security issue

But intelligence and military operations targeting America take the battle to a new level because of the aim of piercing our national security. A Carnegie Endowment report last spring summed up the results: “China’s intelligence agencies have stolen a significant volume of US military secrets in recent years, including aircraft designs. They have penetrated US political campaigns to gain insight into future American policymaking. And they have compromised America’s own espionage networks, reportedly helping to expose and disrupt US intelligence activities in China.”

The report added an ominous point: “China’s intelligence targeting of American officials has become a major justification for US tech restrictions.”

Nearly all those espionage earmarks converge to support the view the Biden family was targeted — and took the bait.

How much damage has been done already seems to be of no concern to Garland, Wray and the somnolent Washington media. Despite having Hunter’s laptop since 2019, there is zero indication the FBI has even considered the clear evidence that Joe benefited from the many millions Chinese handlers wired to Hunter’s accounts. Their inaction smells like a deliberate attempt not to know.

By all means, the Justice Department should continue to crack down on China’s myriad efforts to lie, cheat and steal its way to global dominance.

But its duty to safeguard national security makes it imperative that investigators also pay special attention to China’s efforts to undermine America’s strength by targeting key individuals and families. The failure to hold the Bidens to that standard is a national scandal today that could lead to a national catastrophe tomorrow.

Did You Know that there are 20,000 dead bodies buried under Washington Square Park?


Washington Square is one of New York’s liveliest parks, with NYU students, dog walkers, street performers, tourists and drug dealers crowding its nearly 10 acres of lush sidewalks and meeting spots. But just below all this bustling humanity lurks a shocking secret: 20,000 dead bodies.

“What lies beneath that splendid, recently re-landscaped and renovated outdoor sanctuary is a bit more morbid,” research librarian Carmen Nigro wrote in a blog post for the New York Public Library.

From 1797 to roughly 1820, the eastern two-thirds of Washington Square Park was a potter’s field, where the bodies of poor and unidentified New Yorkers were unceremoniously dumped in mass graves. For just $4,500, New York City purchased the plot so impoverished locals could afford a decent spot to rest in peace.

Two hundred years later, the organization NYC Ghosts gathers a tour group every night below the park’s iconic arch to tell the spooky stories of the neighborhood. On one recent foggy evening, a lanky tour guide holding a lantern said park-goers “feel sudden cold chills on hot summer nights as they walk over the mass burials. Others have seen shadowy figures in the trees that vanish when approached.”

“This is nothing but death all around here,” another ghost hunter affiliated with NYC Ghosts told a YouTube show. “Is it haunted? Absolutely. I mean there has got to be those spirits and energy that’s still here.”

Certainly, Washington Square Park’s history is teeming with stories that would send a shiver down anyone’s spine.

Who will win the midterms? Ask bettors, not pollsters


Some pundits say that Democrats will win the midterms.

MSNBC tells us, “Democrats are seeing momentum headed into midterms.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claims, “We will hold the House by winning more seats!”

Really? Want to bet?

This fall, CNN’s Douglas Brinkley said, “There is a blue wave going on right now.” Michael Moore agreed: “There is going to be such a landslide” of elected Democrats.

At the time those predictions were made, people who bet on elections believed Republicans had better than a 70% chance of winning back the House.

Whom should we trust?

We can listen to:
No. 1: People who bet.
No. 2: The media pundits.
No. 3: Polls.
No. 4: Professional election forecasters.

Among forecasters, Nate Silver has the best track record. Early this week, his FiveThirtyEight website gave Democrats a 55% chance to hold the Senate (it’s since dipped down to 52%). The Economist’s forecasters give Democrats even better odds.

But I don’t believe them.

I believe the people who bet.

Hochul Orders City Employees To Remove Zeldin Signs


When Jewish ‘honor courts’ Post WW2 Tried Jews as Kapos


Jewish police detaining a former kapo who was recognized by former concentration camp inmates in the Zeilsheim Displaced Persons camp, Germany, ca. 1945. 

In the wake of World War II, many Holocaust survivors in Europe and Israel grappled with a desire for revenge. Some turned to improvised “honor courts” for relief.

Created within reconstituted Jewish communities and displaced persons (DP) camps, the tribunals had no jurisdiction outside of the Jewish community.

Active until 1950, the informal judiciaries handed out punishments ranging from bans on holding public office to banishment from the community.

“The courts tried survivors who were accused of having acted immorally toward other Jews and allegedly having helped the Nazis in their genocide,” said historian Laura Jockusch, who spoke about honor courts during a United States Holocaust Memorial Museum virtual event on October 26.

Estimates on the number of alleged “collaborators” put on trial vary, but the Jewish community in Poland alone opened 175 files and prosecuted 25 Jews as collaborators.

In German DP camps, where thousands of survivors lived, American authorities allowed honor courts and commissions for “liberated Jews” to “purge fugitive collaborators from the ranks of the Jewish community,” said Jockusch.

Historians estimate up to 200 people were tried in DP camp-based proceedings.

Elon Musk completes Twitter takeover, begins firing woke execs


Let that Sink In 

Elon Musk finally completed his $44 billion Twitter takeover deal, firing the company’s CEO and financial chief and ending a lengthy tug-of-war with its board of directors just before a key deadline, according to a source close to the situation.

Musk took the struggling social network private late Thursday, ousting Chief Executive Parag Agrawal and Chief Financial Officer Ned Segal, according to the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Bloomberg News reported early Friday that Musk plans to take over as Twitter’s CEO — at least on an interim basis.

It wasn’t immediately clear who would replace Segal as CFO.

Agrawal and Segal were in Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters when the deal closed and were escorted out, sources said. Musk had accused them of misleading him and Twitter investors over the number of fake accounts on the social media platform.

Musk also fired Vijaya Gadde, Twitter’s top legal and policy executive, and Sean Edgett, general counsel, according to the Wall Street Journal.

CALL THE FAKE DOCTOR! Jill Biden to Campaign for Threatened NY-17 Rep. Maloney


Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, the Democratic congressman from NY-17 on the precipice of a stunning loss to Republican Mike Lawler is calling in the doctor for help. Dr. Jill Biden, who is a teacher, that is.

The First Lady will campaign with the embattled congressman this Sunday in Mount Kisco in an effort to save the head of House Democrats’ campaign arm from an embarrassing defeat. Biden will also attend several other events in support of Democratic candidates in New York.

Earlier this week, the Cook Political Report moved the Maloney vs. Lawler race from “lean Democrat” to “toss up,” a sign of how difficult an election cycle 2022’s midterms is for Democrats.

Republicans have thrown massive amounts of money at the campaign as confidence rises that they could take out the powerful Democrat. In turn, the DCCC, which Maloney leads, has made a $605,000 ad buy in the district to help him secure his seat.

“It will be quite a feather in their cap to knock off the DCCC chair,” Democratic strategist John Reinish said. “He is a very effective burr in their collective saddle, so the idea that they could knock him off would be one that would be very tantalizing.”

Why Did The Israeli Bus Driver Cross The Road?


The story of the bus driver who crossed the road that is circulating in Israel has restored some people’s faith in the kindness of bus drivers.

The protagonist of the story is Moshe Biton, a bus driver for the 65 Egged bus line, which travels from Pisat Ze’ev to Givat Shaul in Jerusalem.

A Facebook user, Ravit Shalom, wrote the moving story on Facebook: “This morning, on bus 65, an elderly blind woman got on the bus and tearfully told the driver that the day before she waited a very long time for someone to help her cross the street and no one paid any attention to her.”

What did Biton do? When he reached the woman’s bus stop, he stopped the bus and patiently escorted the woman across the street.

Skver and Vizhnitz Turn on Biden and Attend GOP Fundraiser


Skver Mayor Spitzer meets Zeldin officials

A fundraiser for Rep. Mike Lawler in Wesley Hills headlined by Republican House Minority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise and joined by several other congressmen from across the country was attended by various high-ranking members of the chasidish community, just a day after President Biden begged them to support incumbent Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney.

Chasidic dignitaries in attendance included New Square Mayor Izzy Spitzer, Kaser (Vizhnitz) Mayor Eli Pinkasowitz, Airmont Deputy Mayor Shimon Moses, Chestnut Ridge Trustee Chaim Ross, Pomona Village Trustee Mendy Lasker, activist Yossi Gestetner, and others.

The Chasidic presence at the fundraising luncheon came just a day after President Joe Biden called the Skverer and Vizhnitzer rebbes, asking them to throw their support behind Rep. Maloney, who is facing an increasingly difficult election on November 8th.

Much of the luncheon focused on education and how the federal government could assist students, and particularly Orthodox Jewish students whose yeshivos are being targeted by New York bureaucrats.

Rep. Scalise, who is projected to become the House Majority Leader following the expected Republican takeover of the House of Representatives, said that a top GOP priority in Congress is to pass a Parental Bill of Rights that would block states from regulating what and how parents must teach their children.

There are still Rabbanim with integrity! Rabbi Reisman Endorses Zeldin for Governor


 Lee Zeldin is about to get an extremely rare endorsement from a leading Rabbi, underscoring just how perilous the current situation is for religious Jews in New York.

As first reported in Hamodia by Reuvain Borchardt, Harav Yisroel Reisman is set to endorse the Republican, mainly due to the looming threat to yeshivas from the State Education Department.

For months, Charedim have wondered whether Rabbanim would publicly endorse Zeldin. Orthodox leaders often refrain from endorsing candidates, in part because of the risk of alienating the opposition.

However we are living in unprecedented times. The community has been afflicted with rampant antisemitism, and the vicious campaign against yeshivas has culminated in catastrophic restrictions.

While one of the candidates clearly stands with our community, the other, despite support from askanim, has repeatedly alienated orthodox Jews.

Unlike Hochul who has avoided taking a stand on the secular equivalency issue and refused to defend yeshivas, Zeldin has been a staunch and unwavering supporter of the yeshiva curriculum, even months before the equivalency guidelines were passed by state officials.

“Our lives as Orthodox Jews in this state have never been so threatened as they are now, with the current education regulations,” Rabbi Reisman, Rosh Yeshiva of Torah Vodaath and Rav of Agudah of Madison, told Hamodia. “Lee Zeldin had the courage to speak up for our yeshivos many months ago, not just as the election is coming down to the wire.”

He added, “We would support Zeldin for his stances on crime and inflation anyway. But our community is laser-focused on the attack on our yeshivos. And we are very motivated to get out and vote.”

Rabbi Reisman is scheduled to announce the endorsement on Sunday. In addition, a letter sent this week to alumni from Yeshiva Chaim Berlin urged them to vote for Zeldin, saying “Our chinuch and way-of-life” are “at stake.”

Israeli scientists confirm the Stories from Tanach with geomagnetic testing


Israeli researchers from Tel Aviv University and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem were able to confirm the veracity of several classic biblical narratives after leveraging advanced geomagnetic testing at a number of ancient sites.

The researchers led a team of scientists and students from some 20 different countries, who used the new dating method to determine the age of 21 layers of destruction at 17 various biblical sites in the Jewish State.

Geophysicists used an innovative method of analyzing magnetic minerals found at the sites which, when burned or heated, can confirm the presence of the field at a specific point in time.

Coupled with an account of historical battles recorded in the bible, the researchers were able to track the path of destruction caused by the ancient Babylonian army and others who invaded the Land of Israel in antiquity.

“Based on the similarity or difference in intensity and direction of the magnetic field, we can either corroborate or disprove hypotheses claiming that specific sites were burned during the same military campaign,” explained doctoral student Yoav Vaknin, one of the lead researchers in the project.

But beyond confirming biblical history, the scientists also successfully used a new form of geomagnetic testing that can be used by scientists to date the age of ancient sites.

“Moreover, we have constructed a variation curve of field intensity over time, which can serve as a scientific dating tool, similar to the radiocarbon dating method,” Vaknin added.

Amou Haji, Known as 'World's Dirtiest Man,' Dead at 94 right after taking his First Bath in 60 Years


A man from Iran who was dubbed the "world's dirtiest man" has died at the age of 94.

Amou Haji went more than 60 years without taking a bath before he died in Dejgah on Sunday, The Guardian reported.

Locals said he did not bathe due to "emotional setbacks in his youth," the publication added.

The BBC said that Haji was afraid he'd get sick if he used soap and water

He ultimately gave in, and "for the first time a few months ago, villagers had taken him to a bathroom to wash," Iran's IRNA news agency reported, according to The Telegraph. "Not long after, he fell ill and finally, on Sunday… he died."

Haji isn't survived by any known family members, but he was beloved in the village, and some even reportedly built him a cinderblock hut to sleep in

His fame spread further after he went viral for smoking a handful of cigarettes at a time. He would also use a metal plumbing object to smoke animal waste, The Telegraph added.

It was reported that he would eat rotten porcupine roadkill, and he drank five liters of water daily from a dirty bucket, per the publication.

Physicians from Tehran reportedly evaluated him earlier this year, and he was deemed healthy.

Florida attorney who opposed state helmet law dies in motorcycle crash while not wearing one


Friends are speaking out after a Florida attorney who fought state helmet laws died in a motorcycle crash while not wearing one.

Ron Smith, an experienced rider, was killed on Aug. 20 after he lost control of his motorcycle and crashed into a utility trailer. His girlfriend, Brenda Volpe, was his passenger and also died.

"He was a guy that you went to for advice," Gary Pruss told the Tampa Bay Times.

The pair met through a group called the American Legion in Old Town.

Smith was traveling on U.S. 19 North in Pinellas County when he began to slow down to traffic, lost control of his motorcycle and skid on the roadway, the Florida Highway Patrol wrote in an accident report. His bike rotated "in a clockwise motion, overturning onto its left side" and collided with the left side and wheel of the utility trailer.

Smith, 66, was pronounced dead at the scene. Volpe, 62, died hours later at a hospital.

A medical examiner said Smith and Volpe died from head trauma, the Times reported. The office did not immediately return a request for comment on Wednesday.

The accident report noted that neither was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, although it is unknown whether one would have prevented their deaths.

Smith had spent over a decade fighting Florida laws that required the use of helmets, according to the Tampa Bay Times. He represented a number of clients who violated state motorcycle requirements in court cases that have been credited with helping to overturn the helmet law.

The current law states that anyone over the age of 21 can ride without headgear as long as they have at least $10,000 in insurance coverage "for injuries incurred as a result of a crash while operating or riding on a motorcycle."

Dave Newman, a friend, told the newspaper that Smith loved his independence and did not like being told what to do.

"He thought everybody should have their own choice," he said.

In one court case from 1996, Smith represented a man who was ticketed for riding his motorcycle without a helmet in Madeira Beach, according to the Times, citing a Tampa Tribune article. As a result of the case, the Pinellas Sheriff’s Office briefly stopped enforcing the state’s helmet law after a judge dismissed the person's citation. The judge based the decision on another case that Smith fought in which it was ruled that Florida's law was unconstitutional.

At the time, Smith told the Tribune that he got on his bike and went "looking

When these Rebbe’s endorse a toaiva candidate, like both Satmars openly endorsing the baby killer toaiva Kathy Hochul, I lose respect for them. They become lower in my eyes. If they anger Hashem and Hashem hates them, so do I. There are no excuses for actions that anger HKB”H. There is no dan licaf zchus garbage, when the kavod of the Borei Olam is at stake. They may have thousands of followers, but that means NOTHING in HKB”H’ eyes. Chillul Shem shomayim.

I can’t speak about local politics. However, one thing I will say after last night’s debate is anyone that endorses or votes for Hochul is a total fool. I watched the debate on You Tube I was shocked there were hundreds of comments almost every single one in support of Zelden. If the chasidishe mosdos endorse Hochul after the SED yeshiva debacle, then I lost all my respect for these useful idiots. Perhaps then Moster is right. The chasidim need an education. Let’s hope these mosdos don’t openly endorse Hochul.

Dear ADMOR Harav Dovid Twerski SHLITA;

Please think about NYS Jewery & klal yisrael as whole vs your Choshuve Shtetl. Look at the current government actions as a whole as far as Toeiva, murder & crime, …and all the 7 Noahide violations from this week’s Parsha. Think of the NYS covid lockdowns & mandate missery and government actions targeted specifically at the Jewish Community.
I know you may be thinking this connection may come in handy in case one your Kehila members get into trouble. I know it worked with the Clintons and your Chasidim are indeed lucky to have you as their Rebbe. You acted the way a most caring father would do so for a child. However, I implore of you to think beyond that and for the chinuch & safety of the rest of our children. In that zchus may Kehila always be protected and may we merit the Geula Shleima, Amen.

Please read this Satmar, Skver and any mosdos that thinks flattery will help THEIR pocketbooks. This what the Ben Yehyodah (The Ben Ish Chai) says about flattery Sotah 42:
כָּל אָדָם שֶׁיֵּשׁ בּוֹ חֲנוּפָּה נוֹפֵל בַּגֵּיהִנָּם (ישעיה ה, כ). נראה לי בא ללמד אפילו הוא תלמיד חכם דאין גיהנם שולט בו קל וחומר מסלמנדרא כדאיתא בחגיגה (חגיגה כז.) עם כל זה לא תגין עליו תורה בזה אלא יהיה נופל בגיהנם! ורמז לדבר חֹנֶף [138] עולה מספר לַגֵּיהִנֹּם [138] ולזה אמר כל אדם רוצה לומר אפילו תלמיד חכם. אי נמי לומר אפילו עני הוא והוצרך להחניף בשביל פרנסתו.
ומה שאמר אֵין תְּפִלָּתוֹ נִשְׁמַעַת נראה לי בס”ד מדה כנגד מדה, הפה הוא שערי תפלה וכיון דחטא בפה בחנופה נסתמו לו שערי תפלה.
ועוד נראה לי בס”ד על פי מה שאמר הרמ”ז [הרב משה זכות] ז”ל יחוד התפלה הוא מספר חן [58] כזה ‘ו־ה וה־י והה־י’ [58] וכתב לכן התפלה נקראת בשם חן כמה דאת אמרת וָאֶתְחַנַּן אֶל הֳ’ (דברים ג, כג) עיין שם. נמצא התפלה היא סוד חן בפה ולכן עון חנופה גורם דאין תפלתו נשמעת.

In order to be a true leader whether in business or being a rebbe you have to true to your principles. Flattery may seem to help but when you’re down these politicians will kick you in the back. I’m certain they won’t help with the SED either. I for one will have lost all my respect for any mosod that openly endorses Hochul. My hope is that what happened in Lakewood will happen here. In Lakewood the vaad supported the democrat while the citizens of Lakewood voted for the Republican
