Re: Lakewood NJ Master Thread I don't get why everyone is so hysterical about these blatant anti-orthodox. We outnumber them 30 to 1. Why don't we also form a Rise Up Proud Jewish Lakewood and defend ourselves, Kikar Shabbos style, vhamaivin yovin, as we do against the mesitie hadas in the karta deshufraya?

Re: Adding Financial Literacy Courses In Yeshivas
Similar to many mesivtas in the US with 2-3 hours secular studies in the afternoon

Many, but not all. Most Tri State Area mesivats are like in Israel, no secular. In Europe, no such thing. And its min 4 hours. And they are taught by professionals. And GCSE's A Levels are miles ahead of Regents.

(But that fine, because American kids will go on to College where they will in-debt themselves forever - and/or have parents bribe to get them in - while in Europe, this too is free/very cheap)

Re: Re: The Funny/strange/interesting/random Tweets Thread Read a book? You mean Berel Wein?

On a serious note, there was plenty of Arab Muslims in Palestine before 1948, that did not come with the Aliya waves. Lydda and Ramle, Jaffa, Nablus, Hebron, Acre, Haifa, Jenin, and Jericho etc. were significantly sized Muslim towns. Jerusalem was on the larger end, and 80% Muslim. Nazareth and -interestingly enough- Ramallah, were Arab Christian. The Jews were very sparse pre 1850, settled mainly in Safed and Jerusalem with small communities in Tiberias and Hebron. The waves of Aliya brought the population to a 70-30 ratio which was the number the British sought to maintain. All the talk of net immigration by Arabs to Palestine is blatantly false, peddled by the Israelis. There was a net migration of Arabs from Palestine in the 1880-1960 era, which is the bulk of the Jewish Aliya. The Arab birthrate, until today, is higher than the Jewish one. If Arabs were coming in, then the population here would be a Arab majority, which was only avoided by this net migration.

That being said, the Arabs have plenty land of their own and should make way for the Jews who have been wandering around for 2,000 years. Letís ignore the fact that authentic Judaism, the version that has lasted these 2,000 years, rejects ďforcing the MessiahĒ. Letís take all these Arabs and push them out. And then letís wonder why they want to murder us. Letís point to the beautiful country we built (by schnorring from the Germans and Americans) and hide behind our advancement. And letís promote the fact we are a true democracy (as long as youíre not Arab, Mizrachi, or Chareidi- but hey, America had slaves once too).

I love Eretz Yisrael, spent most of my life there, do a lot of business there, but am sickened by Zionism more everyday that goes by.

Your agenda is cant mix your religious views with your political views.

There is no Palestine at present. There is a State of Israel that they want to "free from the river to the sea." Can you see a difference?!?

The UN created an Arab State in 1947...its called Jordan so quit this Arab Nationalism baloney. They only became that way when they lost war after war. The Arabs are always fighting the last war. In 1967 they wanted 1948, now they want 1967.

Yes I am anti-Zionist. Proudly anti those who corrupted the holy Torah.

There is no Palestine because they lost the wars of words and tanks. Not because they donít exist.

The UN did not create Jordan. Churchill did. And the people living on the West side donít need to cross the the river eastward because some guy in London decides.

And yes, they suck at wars. So? They are now non-existent?

Whatís YOUR long term solution for the 2 million Arabs of the West Bank and Gaza?

Re: Re: The Funny/strange/interesting/random Tweets Thread
1. I thought it is mostly desert, are you sure that 65% is not?
2. Did not say they are not :)
3.You missed Bethlehem which was at one time 95% Christian, now 95% Moslem.Most Arab christians immigrated to the US,Canada, Chile and other.

Many did immigrate, so that sort of flies in the face that no one was here, or else who immigrated!? Bethlehem was just a backwater compared to the rest. Ad Hayom Hazeh

Re: Re: The Funny/strange/interesting/random Tweets Thread
Dump Hamas and PA and elect a real secular government. Stop culture of death. Would be a nice start.

Give them the land they want as a state with minor land swaps as was proposed. Recognize Israel's right to exist.

Arafat was offered all that plus. Instead he send suicide bombers. So they built the Wall and that stopped.

Why do you think they're in an open air prison? Because Arafat wouldnt risk his life to make peace. And because he thought he would be irrelevant.

If you can tell me what was wrong with any of what they were offered in the past maybe I'll understand. Dont tell me Torahs about moshiach being forced. You're dealing with a reality that now exists that we have a state and they do not. Stop fighting a war you lost 70 years ago. Otherwise youre exactly like them...fighting the last lost war.

Agreed that the Arabs severly screwed up their cause by choosing violence and ignoring reality, (though thatís the same thing the Zionists did 1903-1948)

The Palestinians are not serious about peace because any agreement means they lost and they
Canít do it. Secular or Religious. The most nationalist Arab MK today is an atheist, and both Arafat and Abu Mazen are not examples of religious fanaticism at all. Arafat saw what happened to Rabin and freaked out. The lesson of the Middle East is that whoever gives up a sliver of land gets shot or unthrowned, Arab or Israeli (Abdullah, Sadat, Rabin, Kadima etc)

Um, Iím a religious believer Chareidi. Fighting old wars are my thing. Why donít you face reality and become non observant because thatís what 90% of world Jewry is like? Of course we still believe in our beliefs, whether reality today is kind to us or not!

Re: United award flights
Good luck. But kinda a waste of a GPU IMO to use it for Premium.
And AFAIK it won't hinder you spot on the upgrade list, look at any flight you'll see those cleared to Premium are still on top of the J list.

Thanks! Last year 4 of my GPUís went unused, would be thrilled to get premier plus with them...

Re: United award flights
I'm sure people here could have used it.  ;)

I'm sure too. But there was only one member on DDF who actually took some, and I didn't do it for money. I did it for the help he gave me in what I needed at the time and a good relationship. DDF to me is not just about buying, it's about helping each other. I've asked over 10-15 questions on DDF related to UA, and am shocked that on such a savvy community only 2 ever came forward. One already got GPU's from me, and the other will also (as year ends and I see I have no use...)
