Is Yair Lapid Channeling Richard Dawkins?

Richard Dawkins

Watch how Dawkins presents his classic antisemitism as a message of concern for the souls of Haredi children who are raised in seclusion from the glories of modernity. It just proves that you can say the most godawful things with a British accent and it comes out sounding rational.

Likewise, Israel’s new Finance Minister Yair Lapid is busy liberating Haredi children from the oppression of their parents and children by impoverishing their families—and it’s all for their own good.

I can go for days without once worrying at all about the educational scope of Haredi children, and yet it appears that these two chaps, Dawkins and Lapid have spent a lifetime mired in concern for the future of these blameless souls.

I’m so tempted to bring up at this point Hitler and Goebbels and Nazi propaganda, but I won’t, because the first party to use the Holocaust in an Internet debate loses. But it’s stunning how it takes Dawkins under one minute to expose himself as a rabid Jew hater.

    this year my children asked me if we were attending shul, I was floored. Even my special needs child Sam wants to go to Chabad. I guess managed to pass it on without knowing it. Osmosis. They are now leading me- thank you Hashem, for all that you have blessed me with. My prayer for this New Year is for the shield of David to surround all of Eretz Yisrael.

    Hope not

  3. AlanJohnClark says:

    A typical ploy by Dawkins’ opponents: they cannot refute his arguments so they resort to ad hominems instead. And Dawkins is not against Jewish people, it is religion that he is against. The writer is making a fool of himself by confusing the two!

  4. Tova Bar-chaim says:

    don’t ALL liberals know what’s right and wrong FOR EVERYBODY? ……their way is THE ONLY CORRECT WAY…….for everybody . period end of discussion.

A Jerusalem woman is trying to hold on to her umbrella while withdrawing some cash at a Meah Shearim ATM, Sunday, March 9, 2014. The rain appeared out of the blue (which is how rain should), after a warm week that started to feel like summer. Well, it don’t feel like summer no more. Last […]

I’m thinking, if the baby was angry enough, couldn’t he evacuate in return, right there in her arms? Imagine the same picture, except with a settler […]
