    Wrong choice! A Jew who curses another Jew is not worthy of such esteem position. If we don't respect each other, do you think Mashiah will come? No one is Amalek, especially if he or she defend the State of Israel. Hazak to all those in the IDF!

    MAX YOU ARE 100% RIGHT BUT YOU ARE AGAINST BLIND FANATICS LIVING IN THE FIRST CENTURY …I AM SAD TO SAY THE SHAS PARTY IS A PARTY OF CONVENIENCE AND MORE FOR MONEY THAN RELIGION …THE TORAH TEACHES US TO LOVE EACH OTHER AND NOT CALL AMALEK YOUR OWN KIND…THEY USE FEAR TACTICS AND NO ONE CAN ARGUE WITH THEM…..
