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.

Arab Fear Cartoon

This Arab produced cartoon shows what scares the Arabs more than anything else in the world…


Yishai presents audio from his recent interview on Al Jazeera, is joined by some Gentile friends to talk about unbiased news from Israel, and wraps up with an interview with Bethany Mandel about a “bill of rights for Jewish converts”.

Friday, the 30th of Tishrei is the Yartzheit of Rechavam “Gandhi” Ze’evi who was murdered by Arab terrorists in Jerusalem. Ze’evi was an IDF general and a minister in the Israeli government, and who had tremendous love for the Land of Israel. In this video, Ze’evi visited the Lubavitcher Rebbe and asked him for advice […]

There’s nothing romantic or operatic here. Just a brutal murder by Arab terrorists.

Yishai talks about Israel’s Christian allies and how the Sinai might work for the Palestinians.

We’ve completed Rosh Hashanah. We survived Yom Kippur. We enjoyed Sukkot. We celebrated Simchat Torah… What’s next? Chanukah!

As this week’s Parsha is Breishit (Genesis), we thought it would be interesting to run one of Rabbi Natan Slifkin’s talks on Torah, Creation… and Dinosaurs. The photo above is from the site AllAboutJerusalem.com and the article there talks about the dinosaur footprints that were found in Beit Zayit in Jerusalem.

Yishai debates a cynical friend about the Jewish State, talks about the lack of Sukkot in the Hague, and broadcasts from the Moshav Carlebach Music Festival.

Yishai is joined by Renowned Israeli cantor Binyamin Nakonechny and Malkah Fleisher in-studio with special Sukkot songs and stories. Listen in and get inspired!

Jeremy Gimpel sent us this amazing Sukkot related video linking the ancient with the modern…

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. 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 […]
