"We will find ourselves in a negative spiral … that could literally slam the door on a two-state solution, having already agreed, I think, that there isn’t a one-state one."
It can be argued whether the Women of the Wall are spiritual angels, but no sane person could accuse them of threatening rabbis to approve their agenda or face death. So who is behind the dirty work?
“You don’t have to send delegations to Hungary to witness raw antisemitism.”
Remember Hamas missiles on Israeli cities? Remember last year’s bloated deficit? Haredi MKs don’t. Everything was great, they say, until Lapid’s universal draft, which turned Syria against Israel.

The decision to play this kind of hardball came from Lapid.
Jewish Home Minister Uri Orbach announced Monday night on his Facebook page that he supports Rabbi David Stav, who is part of the Tzohar...
Lapid’s sounds like Bibi on the “peace process.” He has no trouble raising a regressive tax that hurts the middle class. But give the Haredim a break from the draft? Not in this government. We’ll see.
There will be no trucks coming to transfer them to prison.
The recommendations determine new rules for sharing the security burden equally.
Lapid is beginning to smell like a rose thanks to Haredi tycoons. He is taking yeshivas off the government dole and balancing the budget. How will yeshivas survive? The tycoons have an answer - money.

JERUSALEM – Rabbi Shlomo Amar, Israel’s current Sephardi chief rabbi whose 10-year term is set to expire in the coming months, and Ramat Gan Chief Rabbi Yaakov Ariel, a leading Ashkenazi rabbi, announced their intention to force a legal change in the chief rabbinate selection process.
UTJ and WOW argue over the halacha of women's prayer on the radio -- can Mashiach be too far?
Israel's Justice Minister Tzipi Livni ordered her ministry on Thursday to draft legislation that would make the gender-based segregation of women illegal. "Discrimination against women...
Yes, they've won a battle, a long one at that—but the war is far from over.
Hitler wanted to exterminate Jews. Lapid only wants to exterminate the Haredi habit of not to work or serve in the IDF. That is enough for a Haredi columnist to compare Lapid’s and Hitler’s speeches.
Approximately Jerusalem residents, including Meretz party supporters, protested on front of City Hall Saturday night against a plan to close a new movie theater...
The absence of Haredi parties in the government is already being, and women probably will be among those nominating Israel’s next rabbinic judges and chief rabbis.
