Extremist Chareidim Now take Taxis to "terrorize" New Beit Shemesh Neighborhoods


Beit Shemesh is growing faster than a cat on a mouse B"H! 
There is a brand-new neighborhood called Beit Shemesh Daled, and that will be the largest neighborhood in Beit Shemesh after its completion.. 
The people moving in there come from all backgrounds, Chassidish, Yeshivash,  Dati Leumi, Teaneck and Five Town types etc. 

The Chareidim Extremists want the entire neighborhood, to be like their sick bizarre community. So, they decided to bring Chassidishe hoodlums from outside the neighborhoods to terrorize the residents to force them to either move out or prevent others from moving in.
In the above clip you can see them running into cabs after terrorizing and causing bedlam in the neighborhood.
BTW this goes on every single night.

How many lives will Chareidim allow this fiend to destroy until they finally kick him to the curb.?

Netflix hosts film depicting IDF as bloodthirsty murderers


Otzma Yehudit chairman MK Itamar Ben-Gvir responded to the publishing by Netflix of a Jordanian film which depicts IDF soldiers as bloodthirsty murderers.

"The Jordanian incitement film that will be broadcast on Netflix proves how much hypocrisy there is in the world towards Israel, which was attacked with murderous terrorism even before its establishment," Ben-Gvir said.

"The Foreign Ministry should deal with this brainwashing with determination, by informing and presenting the real picture of who the actual bloodthirsty murderers are. We cannot be silent in the face of this blood libel that would reverberate around the world," he said.

The Jordanian film 'Farha,' which was shown for the first time at the Toronto film festival, won critical praise and was even chosen to represent Jordan in the 'Best Foreign Film' category at the upcoming Oscars.

The film, which claims to give a glimpse from the Palestinian Arab side of the tumultuous period of Israel's War of Independence, or the 'Nakba' as the filmmaker Darin J. Sallam calls it. Sallam caused quite a stir and criticism even from those who usually support the anti-Israeli narrative.

Farha' follows a 14-year-old Palestinian Arab girl whose father hides her in the family's basement during an Israeli bombing in 1948. From there, through a small hole in the wall, she watches her village turn into ruins at the hands of Israeli soldiers.

In a following scene, the girl watches as a group of soldiers forces an Arab man to reveal where his family is hiding and proceed to mercilessly slaughter the family, including a baby.

The film will be available on Netflix starting this Thursday, December 1.

Rabbi Shimon Yitzchak Schlesinger Senior Member of the Badatz beaten this morning at his home on Tzfania Street in Jerusalem by Chareidim

 Shock to Chareide community after one of the senior rabbis and a member of the Badatz Gaon Rabbi Shimon Yitzchak Schlesinger was beaten this morning at his home on Tzfania Street in Jerusalem.

The Gaon Rabbi Shimon Yitzchak Schlesinger is one of the most prominent disciples of the Gavaad of the ultra-Orthodox community HaGrit Weiss z"l, who was appointed by him to serve as the Chief Rabbi 17 years ago, and since then he has become one of the most prominent rabbis in Jerusalem.

A Chareidie man who introduced himself as someone who wanted to ask the Dayan a halachic question was brought into his house, but a few seconds later he slapped the Dayan in the face and fled the scene.

In a conversation with Kikar HaShabbos, a source in the ultra-Orthodox community claims his family members believe that the background to this story is the Dayan's refusal to surrender to extremist elements that have been waging a stubborn struggle in recent weeks against the donation devices, devices that allow credit card users to donate  and these devices work on the internet. 

 According to the Official of Israel, Schlesinger even spoke on the issue and said that he does not understand why there are those who are opposed to this. A statement that led extremist elements in the ultra-Orthodox community to speak out against him.

It should be noted that the same extremists even started a struggle against the kashrut supervisors of the ultra-Orthodox community, claiming that there is no justification for the supervisors to use smartphones, that  the rabbis of the ultra-Orthodox community ruled that kashrut supervisors are allowed to have a protected device, but in secret.

Segregation would endanger religious women in Israel


Mystery Unsolved about Paul Pelosi Attack ..Why Did NBC Retract Initial report and Why is the Reporter Missing ?


NBC News correspondent Miguel Almaguer still has not appeared on air since his Nov. 4 report was retracted without explanation after it suggested Paul Pelosi may not have been in immediate danger when police arrived the night he was assaulted in the San Francisco home he shares with his wife, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. 

Almaguer, a Los Angeles-based correspondent, is typically a fixture on NBC’s "Today" and "NBC Nightly News," but was reportedly suspended when his stunning report was mysteriously retracted without explanation. 

David DePape allegedly broke into Pelosi's San Francisco home around 2 a.m. Oct. 28, snuck into the master bedroom and found Paul Pelosi asleep. He is accused of demanding to know the House speaker’s whereabouts and threatening to break her kneecaps with a hammer – but she was in Washington, D.C., at the time. 

Road Rage Murder Of Yuri Volkov, Caught Live On Camera, Stuns Israel


This is a huge problem in the heimishe communities too and it should be addressed in shuls!

The senseless murder of Yuri Volkov, a 52-year-old healthcare aide at Ichilov hospital, during a road rage incident caught live on camera Wednesday evening, has shocked Israel to the core. Volkov’s murderer, 22-year-old Adi Mizrachi, was apprehended by police Friday and confessed to the murder, which he said he “would be sorry for for the rest of my life.”

Volkov was stabbed to death in Holon on Wednesday evening after getting into an argument with a motorized scooter driver while crossing the road.

Holding a picture of her husband while her son hugged her, Lena Volkov, Yuri’s widow who had been with him at the time of the stabbing, described the incident.

Miriam Sussman of Monsey found Dead after a day search


 A 52-year-old chareidi resident of Monsey has tragically been found dead on Carlton Road after disappearing hours before. According to a report by the Monsey Scoop, Mrs. Miriam Zussman disappeared at about 4:45 PM on Sunday evening and was found by Chaveirim of Rockland County at 1 AM Monday morning. Zussman had apparently been the victim of a hit-and-run accident, with the driver either fleeing the scene or unaware of the accident.

Hatzalah volunteers arrived on scene but unfortunately were unable to revive Zussman, who had seemingly been hit by a passing car.

Police are present at the scene and are supervision the investigation of the incident, while Chaveirim members search for surveillance cameras in the area in order to help police understand how the accident happened. Misaskim and Chesed Shel Emes are involved in maintaining the honor of the deceased.

Chesed Fund campaign has been set up to assist the family at this time.

Shaked’s Final Coup: Advancing Plan for 9,000 Housing Units in Northern Jerusalem


Near the end of her stint as Interior Minister in the Lapid government, Ayelet Shaked urged the District Committee for Planning and Construction of the Jerusalem District to speed up the approval process for the huge Atarot project, Israel Hayom reported on Sunday. This is a planned complex of some 9,000 housing units to be built at the location of Jerusalem’s Atarot airport.

The plan constitutes another de facto annexation of a section of Jerusalem that was liberated in June 1967, and as such will undoubtedly be met with international condemnations. Shaked had advanced the plan while in office and wished to give it a final push forward now that she is no longer accountable to Prime Minister Lapid.

The district committee was not especially delighted with the push and informed the outgoing minister that the area’s environmental review had not yet been completed, which meant that it was not legally possible to approve the plan now – please wait a few months.

So Shaked didn’t exactly go out with a bang, but her associates still told Israel Hayom that “even though it’s not possible to complete the planning of Atarot at the moment, Shaked promoted the plan to the limit during her shift. It is now up to the next government to complete it. This concerns Israel’s grip on northern Jerusalem, as well as a plan that will release tens of thousands of apartments into the capital’s heated real estate market.”

The Jerusalem International Airport in Atarot, located between Jerusalem and Ramallah, is no longer in use. When it was inaugurated, in 1924, it was the first airport in the British Mandate of Palestine. Israel annexed Atarot airport Israel in 1981, under the Jerusalem Law. Both Arkia and El Al operated daily commercial flights to and from the airport between 1967 and 2001 when it was closed to civilian traffic after the breakout of the Second Intifada in 2000.

The original Israeli media reports about the project spoke of 11,000 housing units in the Atarot industrial area. The numbers then dropped to 10,000, and now 9,000.

Binyamin Shafran who heads the Atarot project forum told Israel Hayom that “Shaked was infinitely loyal to construction in the city in general and Atarot in particular. I appreciate her for promoting the project and hope that the next Interior Minister, most likely Aryeh Deri, will continue the plan, which his representative in the municipality supports, and which the chief rabbi (the late Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, the spiritual leader of Shas – DI) wanted for commemorating his father there.”

Yoilie Roth Who was Responsible for Censoring The Post on Twitter Threatens Musk in Op-Ed in New York Slimes


News that Elon Musk brought his 2-year-old son — one of 10 children — into key meetings at Twitter headquarters, after taking over the social media company in the fall, might make it less of a mystery to lefties why his “Priority #1” has been to banish child sexual exploitation material. 

Not that you need to be a parent to abhor child pornography, but for some reason the vile content effectively was given a free pass at Twitter before Musk arrived, so clearly not everyone in the company respected society’s last taboo. 

But, instead of applauding Twitter’s dedication to child safety and attack on degeneracy, leftist media has been decrying Musk’s attempts to restore free speech protections as if they are a threat to civilization. 

They are hopping mad that Musk is demolishing the left-wing censorship regime that saw a sitting president de-platformed, satirical site The Babylon Bee banned and the oldest newspaper in the country locked out of its account for two weeks before the 2020 election. 

Censorship hypocrisy 

Lamenting the explosion of free speech under Musk, Yoel Roth, the former head of “Trust and Safety” who was responsible for censoring The Post, delivered an implied threat to his former employer in an op-ed piece in The New York Times. 

Woke City Council Set to Prohibit Criminal Background Checks for Tenants


The New York City Council is preparing to vote on a bill which would make it illegal for landlords to conduct criminal background checks on prospective tenants – even convicted murderers.

According to the NY Post, the woke council is likely to pass the radical piece of legislation. At least 30 of 51 members have agreed to support the “Fair Chance for Housing Act,” which is scheduled to have its first hearing on Dec. 8.

And Mayor Eric Adams appears more than willing to sign it into law, should the bill pass, in the name of equality.

“No one should be denied housing because they were once engaged with the criminal justice system, plain and simple,” Adams’ spokesman Charles Lutvack told the paper. (It appears that the phrase “engaged with the criminal justice system” is another way of saying ‘convicted of murder and other violent crimes’.)

Jewish Brooklyn Councilwoman Inna Vernikov, one of the lone voices of reason in the leftist council, posted a video calling on New Yorkers to demand their local representatives reject the bill because “the safety of your families … is at stake.”

Prime Ministers of the Book .....Israel’s three most significant leaders were also dedicated readers


With Bibi Netanyahu’s forthcoming ascension to the Israeli premiership for the third time, it is clear that he now ranks, along with founding Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion and the first Likud prime minister, Menachem Begin, as one of Israel’s three most important and influential prime ministers to date. 

Since 40% of Israelis between the ages of 16 and 65 read at least one book a week, it may not be accidental that, in addition to their enormous roles in shaping the modern state of Israel, all three men shared a prodigious, perhaps even obsessive, love of books.

Ben-Gurion was the first and perhaps the most creative reader. His library had books in multiple languages, and he had a well-cultivated appetite to read books in the original language. As far back as 1922, Ben-Gurion had a library of 775 books, in English, German, Hebrew, French, Arabic, Latin, Russian, Turkish, and Greek. He even worked on Spanish so that he could read a book on Spinoza in Spanish, a project he undertook with his friend Yitzhak Navon, Israel’s fifth president. The two men apparently enjoyed the project so much that they then took up the reading of Cervantes’ Don Quixote together in Spanish as well.

Nor was Ben-Gurion’s appetite for reading books in their original languages limited to Spanish. Ben-Gurion also worked with Navon on reading Rambam’s Moreh Nevukhim (Guide to the Perplexed) in Arabic with Hebrew characters, which is how Maimonides wrote it. The Hebrew characters were easy for him: He started a Zionist Hebrew speaking club at age 13 in his native Poland. The Arabic vocabulary, however, required extra effort.

Ben-Gurion was reluctant to have television permitted in the early days of the state because, he believed, “Jews should continue to read books.” Fortunately for fans of Fauda and other popular Israeli TV shows, Ben-Gurion did not get his way.

Non-Jewish Nanny Influencer Is normalizing Frum Jews


Good babysitters let the kids stay up extra late and play fun games.
Extraordinary babysitters become ambassadors for the Jewish people, using their platform to amplify the beauty of a Torah way of life.

Enter Adriana Fernandez, known by her Instagram handle @nonjewishnanny. Singer by night and sitter by day, Adriana has made a name for herself in Boca Raton’s Orthodox Jewish community, and even wider ripple effects on these video-based social platforms.

With three years of babysitting experience in the community, she has learned so much — from tzniut (modest) clothing and covering hair with wigs to the details of Shabbat and the holidays. She has taken that information, appreciation, joy, and fun to the masses with her delightful videos.

With her bubbly personality, it’s evident how accepting and easygoing Adriana is; that sense of fun only grows when she interacts with the children. That positivity extends to what she speaks out on regarding the Jewish community.

How a Tehilim saved Jerusalem bombing victim's life


A 62-year old man who was seriously injured in the Wednesday, November 23rd bombings in Jerusalem reported to his doctors and guests at Shaare Zedek Medical Center that his life had been saved in part due to the Tehillim (Psalms) book which was in his pocket when the explosion occurred.

On Wednesday morning, the man was travelling from his Jerusalem home to Meron in northern Israel, when he was struck by the force of the explosion.

While he was injured by the blast and several fragments of shrapnel from the bomb, he later discovered that one potentially lethal fragment had penetrated the rear cover of the book of Tehilim he was carrying.

The fragment made its way all the way through the pages of the book before coming to a full stop at verse 7 of Chapter 124. The verse reads Nafsheinu K’Tzipor Nimlata MiPach Yokshim: Hapach Nishbar, V’Anachnu Nimlatnu “Our soul has escaped like a bird evading the grasp of its captors. The grasp is broken and we have escaped.”

After several procedures to remove other fragments that had entered his extremities, the man is now recovering. While requesting to remain anonymous, he asked that the message be shared of his remarkable story of the Tehillim book saying, “This is what helps.”

Elon Musk proves the woke left wrong again as hate speech is DOWN and new user signups were at an all-time high averaging over 2 million per day


Elon Musk has shared slides from his talk with Twitter workers saying hate speech is down since his $44billion takeover.

The slides, posted to on his Twitter page, show between October 17 and November 13 hate speech impressions are lower.

The CEO also reported new user signups were at an all time high, averaging over two million per day in the past week.

These new figures counter reports early last month which claimed an uptick in the amount of hateful language being tweeted in the wake of Musk taking the helm.

Musk's $44 billion acquisition of Twitter last month fanned widespread concern that purveyors of lies and misinformation would be allowed to flourish on the site. 

The ban lifted on former U.S. President Donald Trump's twitter, along with the Twitter Blue fiasco that allowed anyone to be verified, has seen Musk in firing line.

But Musk maintains that user numbers remain at an all time high, tweeting on Saturday that user sign up was at an all time high. 

Alyssa Milano Mocked by Social Media, after trading in her Tesla for a Volkswagen: 'Founded by Nazis'

Actress Alyssa Milano was blasted on Twitter, including by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, after saying that she "gave back" her Tesla and replaced it with a Volkswagen. 

"I gave back my Tesla," Milano, a prominent supporter of Democrats on Twitter, posted Saturday. "I bought the VW ev. I love it. I’m not sure how advertisers can buy space on Twitter. Publicly traded company’s products being pushed in alignment with hate and white supremacy doesn’t seem to be a winning business model."

Twitter users, many of them conservative, criticized Milano over the tweet with many pointing out Volkswagen’s ties to the Nazi Party during the early days of its inception.

"Volkswagen was literally founded by the Nazi’s and Hitler," conservative political commentators The Hodge Twins posted which earned a crying laughing emoji and a "100" emoji from Tesla CEO Elon Musk who recently purchased Twitter.

"Lulz," the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire tweeted along with references to Volkswagen’s beginnings as a state sponsored automotive company during Hitler’s reign in Germany.

Clinton’s ‘false’ claims about ‘stolen’ 2016 election censored by YouTube


A video in which Democrat Hillary Clinton unleashed a wide range of unsupported claims that the 2016 presidential race, won by Donald Trump, was “stolen,” has been censored by YouTube.

And it appears it’s at least partly because those claims were “false.”

The report said the video was created by YouTuber Matt Orfalea, who doesn’t align himself with either Democrat or Republican parties.

The project included comments from both Clinton and President Donald Trump about the 2016 and 2020 elections, respectively, being stolen.

His work previously has collected hundreds of thousands of views, even millions in some cases.

Orfalea’s work largely is “crisply edited mash-ups of politicians and corporate media figures making complete fools of themselves — without any commentary from Orfalea himself.”

Previously he’s addressed politicians and media figures claiming the Wuhan lab leak theory for the COVID-19 pandemic is baseless, despite the evidence contradicting that conclusion.

Hunter Biden’s laptop, and the hypocrisy exhibited by the legacy media, also has been addressed.

As a result, YouTube has demonetized several, claiming they are “hostile to the establishment-backed narrative,” the report said.

Now he’s offending people again, apparently.

“In September, Orfalea published a montage of Democrat politicians and media figures questioning the results of the 2016 election and characterizing it as ‘illegitimate,’ ‘rigged,’ and ‘hacked.”

IRS Going After the "little guy" With a Vengeance!


The Internal Revenue Service is reminding tax filers to prepare to report transactions of at least $600 that are made through so-called “third-party” facilitators such as Venmo and PayPal.

The agency on Tuesday posted an explainer warning American business owners earning $600 or more per year on payments that are received through apps such as Zelle, Cash App, Venmo, and PayPal to file a tax form known as Form 1099-K.

The IRS is interested in transactions involving part-time work, side gigs, and selling goods, according to the agency.

The rule does not apply to noncommercial payments like reimbursing someone for food or rent or other one-off transactions such as selling an old piece of furniture, according to accountants.

Before this year, the threshold for filing a Form 1099-K report was at least 200 transactions totaling an aggregate of at least $20,000.

When Congress passed the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, it included a provision that reduced the reporting threshold to a single transaction over $600.

The Biden administration hopes that by reducing the threshold, the measure will crack down on Americans evading taxes by not reporting the full extent of their gross income.

The proposal was offered as a way to help pay for a $3.5 trillion social spending bill that would invest in climate programs, child care and education.

Tommy Lucas, an Orlando, Fla.-based certified financial planner, told CNBC that filers must include any sum that is reported on Form 1099-K as part of their business income.

One quarter of hiring managers in the US less likely to hire Jews, poll finds


A new survey found that one in 4 hiring managers discriminate against Jewish applicants, according to an American job recruitment firm.

The top reason listed in the ResumeBuilder survey is the antisemitic trope that Jews have too much “power and control.”

The survey also found that 1 out of 6 hiring managers said that executives instructed them not to hire Jewish employees.

One-third of those surveyed agreed that antisemitism was commonplace at their company, with 29 percent agreeing that antisemitism was “acceptable” where they worked.

Industries where higher levels of antisemitism were reported included finance and technology.

The ResumeBuilder survey asked 1,131 hiring managers and recruiters for their answers about antisemitism.

“Antisemitism in the workplace starts at the hiring process with individuals who do not want to higher Jews because of bigoted stereotypes, but that is not where it ends,” executive recruiter Stacie Haller told ResumeBuilder in a statement by the firm detailing the results of the survey.

“In this era of fighting for equality in hiring, Jewish individuals have largely been left out of the conversation, and the issue of antisemitism has for the most part gone unaddressed,” Haller added.

Elon Musk Says He Will Create His Own Smartphone If Apple and Google Ban Twitter From Their App Stores


Musk announced his plan in a tweet on Friday.

Podcaster and former OAN host Liz Wheeler had tweeted, 

“if Apple & Google boot Twitter from their app stores, @elonmusk should produce his own smartphone. Half the country would happily ditch the biased, snooping iPhone & Android. The man builds rockets to Mars, a silly little smartphone should be easy, right?”

Musk responded that he would if that is what it came down to.

UOHC will “immediately open a full and impartial investigation on Harav Hagoen Chaim Halperin


We have been writing about this sexual pervert since Dec 2012.

A rabbi accused of sexually abusing a woman when she went to him for counselling is to be investigated by the Union of Orthodox Hebrew Congregations, the umbrella body for London’s Charedi communities.

The action follows a TV broadcast on Israel’s Channel 12 last week in which the 21-year-old woman claimed Rabbi Chaim Halpern, head of the Divrei Chaim Synagogue in London’s Golders Green, groped her when she met him for rabbinical guidance.

The woman told the program Rabbi Halpern had touched “private parts” of her body at the counselling session in London and had repeatedly tried to see her during a recent visit to Israel, where she lives.

In reported telephone conversations apparently between the pair, the rabbi said he loved her, told her she was beautiful and asked if she wanted him to “come with you in bed”.

The Union broke its silence on the claims on Thursday by releasing a statement saying it took the allegations “with utmost seriousness” and is opening “a full and impartial investigation”.

It advised the public “to take necessary precautions and to take these allegations seriously”.

'Throw those bums out' : Ambassador Friedman to Trump


Former US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman responded to former US President Donald Trump's meeting with white nationalist Nick Fuentes and rapper Kanye West.

Fuentes and West were seen dining with Trump at Mar-a-Lago.

"To my friend Donald Trump, you are better than this," Friedman wrote. "Even a social visit from an antisemite like Kanye West and human scum like Nick Fuentes is unacceptable. I urge you to throw those bums out, disavow them and relegate them to the dustbin of history where they belong."

"I condemned Barak Obama associating with Louis Farrakhan and Jeremiah Wright." the former Ambassador added. "This is no different. Antisemites deserve no quarter among American leaders, right or left."

Tehran Jewish community swould rather side with regime amid Iran protests than make Aliyah


The small Jewish community in Tehran on Thursday condemned the ongoing anti-regime protests in Iran, which broke out over the death of a young woman held for allegedly violating the Islamic Republic’s strict dress code.

In a letter, the Tehran Central Jewish Committee said it was standing by the Iranian regime amid a deadly crackdown on protesters.

“This is a condemnation of the recent unrest in the country that led to the death and injury of several people in our country, as well as many financial losses to the country,” the letter said.

“The community declares that it has always obeyed the position of the supreme leader,” it added.

Prominent figures in the Jewish community of Iran intermittently issue anti-Israel statements that match the regime’s agenda. Iran is openly sworn to Israel’s destruction and financially supports terrorist groups, like Hezbollah and Hamas, that are also committed to this aim.

Since the death of Mahsa Amini while in the custody of the morality police in Tehran in September, the protests have spread across the country. Authorities have responded with a crackdown that Oslo-based group Iran Human Rights says has left around 400 people dead, half a dozen sentenced to death, and more than 15,000 arrested.

“The community declares that the enemies of the system are creating insecurity by targeting the unity of the people. In recent days, unfortunate events and incidents have occurred in our beloved country, which has hurt the hearts of those loyal to Iran and the holy Islamic system,” the letter said.

“The community asks all members of our dear country to avoid polarizing the country and to discuss things. We hope that in the near future we will see unity, peace, security, and happiness in our beloved country,” it added.

In September, during the first weeks of the protests, the committee issued a letter warning members to avoid synagogues during the violence.

Prior to the Islamic Revolution in 1979, there were some 100,000 Jews in Iran; by 2016, according to an Iranian census, that number had fallen to below 10,000.

The Jewish community in Iran has previously taken other precautionary measures to protect members, with the country’s chief rabbi saying last year that he condemned the US killing of top Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani in 2020 amid fears Jews could be physically attacked by some Muslim neighbors.

Amini, a 22-year-old of Kurdish origin, died on September 16, three days after her arrest in Tehran by the notorious morality police for allegedly breaching the Islamic dress code for women.

The rallies have been led by young women who burned their headscarves and confronted security forces in the biggest wave of unrest to rock Iran for years.

In October, the United States placed over a dozen Iranian officials on its sanctions blacklist for the crackdown on the protests.
