But that which is the prerogative of a police officer on duty is not in the job description of a legislator, who is expected to operate in the clear light of day, based on facts and not racial innuendo.

As your brother who, like you, has been accused by millions of “killing Christ” despite the fact that neither one of us was even in the neighborhood at the time, I ask you to reconsider that paragraph.

In friendship,

    Those women must be Bat Woman because they had BAT Mitzvahs, lol.

  2. Yossi Pollak says:

    Yasher koach Yori. That line is great-"several tea cups short of a party".

  3. Yori Yanover says:

    Hey, man, long time!

  4. Stu Loeser says:

    I like this line better: "As your brother who, like you, has been accused by millions of 'killing Christ' despite the fact that neither one of us was even in the neighborhood at the time…"

  5. Gil Gilman says:

    I am sorry for having a great galloping guffaw over several statements in this article. I know it is a serious topic, but I can't help it, and am still chortling as an attempt is being made to type this on my iPad to thank you for brightening my day!

  6. We may not want guilt by association; however to ignore the radical Muslim.
    Brotherhood relatiaves of high American government officials ( privy to.
    American secrets ) is to be less than intelligent. Its just plain stupid and.
    dangerous.

    People handling sensitive information should be vetted , screened, and.
    suspect if their family members are radical muslims.

    Better careful than dead.

    Michelle Bachman may actually be brining up valid concerns. I say survival.
    of the American way of live over political correctness.

  7. Yori Yanover says:

    Is this a get together of the old neighborhood? Stu — Mazal tov on #3 and on your new freedom.

  8. Yori Yanover says:

    No, she's not. And anyone working for the State Dept. gets vetted. They just don't do it in the middle of the street. You think the FBI now went — OMG, she's a Arab, how could we be so foolish — ? Give me a break.

  9. Yossi Pollak says:

    Yori-I commented on an earlier one of your articles but you didn't take notice, sniff, sniff…hope all is well in Israel.

  10. Anonymous says:

    Yori Yanover, I am curious to see the lady's Form 86…which MUST BE FILLED BY ALL STATE DEPARTMENT EMPLOYEES and which NO ONE has requested… If and what she disclosed of her mother's and brothers' belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood and of her growing-up in Saudi Arabia…? MAY BE, we don't need to go back to the '20s and ARAMCO to find the roots of today's positions of the State Department on Israel and Muslim Brotherhood… It's enough to remember that Monica's trick's wife in 1995 INVITED A HAMAS MEMBER TO THE WHITE HOUSE PRAYER SESSION and hired a "Muslim Sister" to work for her…
    I can't forget the "Jews needn't apply" for interpreters and translators positions from Arabic NOT ONLY in the FBI…
    Wake-up!

  11. Yori Yanover says:

    Good weather, good food, good beach, good job, healthcare for all, no outsourced tech support, fast Internet. But ya gotta have a job. No job no goodies. So God provides. Regards!

  12. Nancy Kramer says:

    we miss you and send regards to Brooke the kids and you…come visit us by the sea!!! yarden off for a three month adventure in the states…shabbat shalom

  13. Charlie Hall says:

    I used to hold a security clearance, and I am familiar with the process. If you have any relatives in any country deemed potentially hostile to the US, you have to go through a huge vetting. There is no way that anyone with MB connections would get any kind of security clearance. Any implication to the contrary by ignorant politicians like Bachmann is reprehensible. Note that a lot of Bachmann's fellow Republicans, who normally keep silent during her rants, couldn't keep silent after this one.

  14. Charlie Hall says:

    Unfortunately, some frum Jews have bought into the junk science that Bachmann has promoted and failed to vaccinate their children. That there can be measles outbreaks in frum neighborhoods today is a chilul HaShem.

An Israeli female soldier (because they’re better at removing babies from their homes) evacuates a baby from a settlement in Judea and Samaria some time in the recent past.
