Re: Its Open Season on Jews
Let's take a step back and examine what Golus is, so maybe it will become obvious to you (and others).

Golus is a status of concealment. Yidden are called בני בכורי ישראל and were given many special gifts by Hashem. In a proper setting, Hashem's chosen people, firstborn nation, should be free of all problems, burdens and hindrances and occupied solely with learning Torah and keeping mitzvos. However, since we are in Golus, that is not the case (at least not in a revealed manner). Self-defense measures are appropriate, but putting too much emphasis on it is only burying ourselves deeper in a golus mindset, rather than focusing on a Geulah mindset of emphasizing good, and focusing on our true mission in this world. Putting trust into self-defense and weapons seems to be distancing us even more from where our trust should be.
Couldn't be said any better!

@ExGingi, You're a beacon of light here on DDF!

Re: Its Open Season on Jews
In North Miami Beach they come and pay ny prices . Then they rent out villas etc.   It's frustrating TBH.

Also, they use our shulls and don't contribute the part.

Would be nice though if visitors and Vila owners contributed to shulls
Sorry, but you are being overly bitter here, beside for it being a very false accusation.

I was in NMB a few weeks ago, Davened in Kahal Chassidim which attracts most of the villa renters/owners. On a very pushita shabbos they sold the Aliyos for at least $125 each, Shishi was sold for $800, in addition to the at least $18 for every Mi Shebeirach. The Gabei called out the guest before, saying "M'bet the guest zullen zich varem unreefen"

I don't know where you Daven, but I've clearly seen how they managed to make the guest contribute a fortune.

As a side note, I didn't know you live in NMB, but I socialized with many very geshmakeh people over there, including from Chabad (which has a beautifull shul and a large growing community) I hope you were one of them :)

Re: Iran's Top Terrorist Taken Out By The U.S.
So when you called him a coward it had nothing to do with his not responding to the missiles?
Seriously, no.

Now Trump is in a bind. He can respond and bring us closer to an all out war or do nothing and look like a coward. This has been the biggest military blunder in modern history.

Re: Something Fishy's Maui and Lanai Trip Report, Courtesy of Delta Welcome back from Hawaii !!  Oh was that a trip! should I write a trip report? well, @Something Fishy did the exact same trip so ill be yotze with his ;).

Mr. Fishy, I really don't know which one of the great talents of yours exceed one another, photography or writing, but one sure complements the other, both together is the perfect set, coupled with your great intelligence and perfect attention to geography. And the outcome? an awesome TR worth million$$!! You should really be writing a book of your trips and sell it for top dollar!

You literally take along the reader on your entire journey. Feeling the exhilaration and joy at every step as well as the letdown when something goes not as planned, but with your vibrant positivity you overcome every obstacle, dragging the reader along back on track.. 

The one place I became dizzy is when you took me along on a 6 mile hike on lava stones and pebbles (sorry for saying it so simplistic ;)) I'm getting exhausted just from reading it, even without offering a helping hand to carry some of the camera gear bags... but I guess muscle size grows with the shoe size ;D.

These trips are what my dreams are made of. Not having the ability to do such myself, I really fulfilled it halfway by reading your fabulous TR!!

1. Hot water is pareve
2. Kavush only applies to leaving things for a while
3. People wash pareve dishes all the time. If it's cold milk, any taam that comes off a sponge is pogem (soap imbedded there).

So quickly we forget that they didn't have 3 sets of dishes in Europe.
1. Hot water is pareve- until you measure dairy cream and use afterwards for hot water without washing out.
2. Kavush only applies to leaving things for a while- remains can stay for a while when placed in the sink or dishwasher.

So quickly we forget that they didn't have 3 sets of dishes in Europe- but 2 sets for sure, same dishes were never used for milchig and fleishig.

Re: Tweets, Pictures, And Videos That Are Coronavirus Related
Do the math

COVID - 3% vs. H1N1 - 00021%
Don't forget this, From the op-ed on DDMS, heard the exact same thing from another doctor too.

Quote
"Although the current mortality rate is quoted as 3.4% when compared to the flu which has a 0.1% mortality, I personally believe that the mortality rate from this disease is much less than 3.4%. This is because a majority of patients have a mild illness similar to a cold or mild flu, and they do not come to clinical recognition, that is, they never see a doctor. Mortality rates are calculated based on putting the number of deaths in the numerator and the number of people with the illness in the denominator. Since a large proportion of people are not reporting their illness, because they’re not very sick, the denominator is actually much larger than the current data suggests, which would bring the mortality rate down significantly. I believe as we get more experience with this virus, and have more testing, we will see a fall in the mortality rate."

Re: When is this all expected to be over?
For you @CountValentine

It is said, “For this, let every pious man pray to You in the time of finding, that the overflowing waters may not reach him” (Psalms 32:6). With regard to the phrase, the time of finding, Rabbi Ḥanina said: The time of finding refers to the time one must find a wife, that one should pray to find a suitable woman to marry. As it is said: “He who finds [matza] a wife finds [matza] good and obtains favor from the Lord” (Proverbs 18:22). In Eretz Yisrael, the custom was that when a man married a woman, they would ask him: Matza or motzeh? In other words, they would ask the groom whether the appropriate passage for his wife is the above verse from Proverbs that begins with the word matza, as it is written: “He who finds a wife finds good and obtains favor from the Lord” or whether the more appropriate verse is the one beginning with the word motzeh, as it is written: “And I find [motzeh] the woman more bitter than death” (Ecclesiastes 7:26).

This is also the sad outcome of hagiographic biographies of the personages of the previous generations where stories are told of mesirus nefesh for [fill in the blank] when in fact those stories never happened or are embellished beyond any truth.
