CALLING A SPADE A SPADE

The dean of the Petach Tikvah Yeshiva, a major force in the Tzohar movement, and the number 2 candidate on Yair Lapid’s Yesh Atid Knesset list “Yesh Atid,” Rabbi Shai Piron, sharply criticized a Shas party election spot which he said “humiliated hundreds of thousands of immigrants from the former Soviet Union” and is “an expression of a dark, racist, offensive and invasive kind of Judaism.”

The spot shows a Russian born bride and an Israeli born groom standing under the Chupah, waiting for the bride to receive her instant giur-conversion document by fax. “Just dial star-giur,” she tells her husband to be, who appears devastated by the fact that he is about to marry a gentile.

“If they get to determine who is a Jew, we’d be forced to live in a racist state which chases loyal citizens who shoulder the national burden and serve their country and its values with love and faith,” Rabbi Piron said. “After trying and failing to gather votes by bringing the ethnic demon back to life, the Shas leaders have decided to abuse the immigrant community. The Shas-style Judaism is not our Judaism. Anyone willing to gain a vote and a half more by humiliating kosher and loyal Jews, deserves widespread public condemnation.”

Piron continued: “The moment of truth is here and we all share a duty to decide who will lead Israel in the coming years. Whether we allow Shas to continue to sow seeds of hatred and division that sharpens the old differences between groups, or mobilize together to strengthen a healthy society.”

    At least getting a conversion calling the Ghiur phone number doesn't involve as many Jews sinning as MAKING MONEY out of phony conversions, as some of Piron's friend in and around Tzohar do.

Minister and chair of Bayit Yehudi party, Naftali Bennett.

The primary road block is the position that Bayit Yehudi party head Naftali Bennett will receive.

Baruch Marzel.

Marzel not sorry Yachad party’s loss cost Bayit Yehudi seats in Knesset. Bennett accuses Netanyahu of thinking he is a sucker.

Yoav Horowitz

Who is Horowitz? He’s Netanyahu’s eyes and ears. He’s very close to him, literally his personal representative everywhere…

This is a chart of the rocket and missile arsenal that initiated Israel's counter terror Operation Protective Edge, and was used by Hamas and allied terrorists -- and was fired from site deep within the Gaza civilian population against Israel's families, in the thousands, for 50 days. At least 11 cease-fires were broken by Hamas.

in a new report, Amnesty International charges “Gaza armed groups’ with war crimes in last summer’s Operation Protective Edge.

If there are no surprises, Netanyahu is expected to form a coalition, after some tough negotiations, with the Likud, Bayit Yehudi, Kulanu, Yisrael Beytenu, UTJ and Shas.

One wonders how many Prime Ministers Herzog envisions sitting in that one chair at the same time.

Netanyahu is expected to have 61 recommendations in his favor.

There’s much disappointment within Yesh Atid as they head into the oppositions.

Final voter counts are in, if Yachad doesn’t petition the courts over voter fraud…

“The truth is it’s surprising to us as well, but it turns out each one of us voted their hearts.”

The anti-Bibi campaign’s quiet change in tax status both came too late and constitutes an admission of wrongdoing.

If the media hadn’t been so eager to oust Netanyahu, voter apathy could have made that happen.

Netanyahu said he wants to have a government formed within the next 2 to 3 weeks.

The overwhelming electoral victory by the Likud was nothing less than a revolution, and an absolutely clear mandate from the people.

At 50% of the votes counted, the Likud pulls way ahead… but what will the remaining 50% do?

A very happy PM Netanyahu declared victory at the Likud victory party.
