You guys are psychopathic. They were kidnapped in Gush Etzion, there are 70,000 Jews who live there.

How can anyone blame them or their parents for their death because they were in such a place?
actually i think most people, excluding yourself obviously, are aware that its more dangerous living in the settlements. the settlers themselves know that as well. they feel justified putting themselves and their families in that danger based on their beliefs.
if someone holds their beliefs are mistaken, then yes, it follows that the parents definitely do bear some of the responsibility for anything that happens. its pretty simple.

now, whether or not these things should be spoken out in a public setting during shivah... thats a different discussion.

And what makes the settlements as a rule any less safe from the rest of Israel? It happens to be that the place that they were kidnapped from is very safe. Both the 1949 borders and  the 1967 borders are protected by the same tziyunim. There are many settlements that are safer than other parts of Israel or Brooklyn for that matter.

??? keep drinkin the koolaid. if you think yehuda and shomron are the same safe as ramat eshkol you obviously have no clue what youre talking about.

All yiddin are tzadikim. How could he talk this way about other Jews ?
heh, really? thats what you get for stopping to learn after reading the headlines

By the way, anyone here familiar with Turkish Airlines program? With the recent changes, it got more attractive, especially with now allowing one-way awards at half price.
excellent program for award rates. problem is nothing transfers into it. you can only get points for bis miles.

I don't know to quote you but it's feasible for the government to restrict non emergency healthcare to non-criminals.
then they would need to make a law that all those with criminal records lose non-emergency healthcare... which would never fly. show me one democratic society that has people with criminal records losing social services?   

obviously the government can do whatever they want, but they can't call themselves a democratic government while openly discriminating against a large minority.

Every mainstream charedi school lives on various government funding, especially the girls schools which are almost regular public schools. Very easy for government to withhold funding from all schools that arent co ed.
the government has no basis to remove funding from the schools, as anyone of that age isn't yet eligible for the army.  anyway the bais yaakovs aren't relevant, because the religious girls still have a ptur from the army.

Most heimish people avoid sales taxes wherever possible. So long as the government controls the banks it won't be any more possible.

It's not feasbile to avoid property taxes (besides arnona for some) since the government controls tabu and nobody in their right mind puts down real money without the security of a land deed.
 
i wasn't saying that they should start avoiding taxes as payback. my point was just that in any first world society, when one pays taxes they in turn are provided with the social services that those taxes go towards paying. to say we're going to cut all your services but you still need to pay taxes is about the equivalent of highway robbery.

The government doesn't owe anybody any child support, and they can slash it from the current $1000/yr to nothing.

Healthcare is free for all residents and now military service is mandatory for all residents. If you don't give you can't take.
child support and healthcare are given to anyone residing in the country, even non israeli citizens who dont serve in anything. its a social service completely independent of the army.

Primary schooling in religious schools is still government funded. They can stop funding private schools.
none of the right wing charedi schools take a penny from the governement.

Say what you will, the charedi system probably cannot survive without the government's money. More people would need to work.
and if the charedim stopped paying sales tax and property tax and car tax etc etc, they could use that money towards living and make up a chunk of the deficit that they would lose from the government cutting funds. they are tax paying members of society and so they get the services of society just like everyone else. that's the way it works in developed countries.

besides, most of them are living primarily on gemachs anyway, a few thousand shekel here or there isn't going to change anyones life in the long run. while the money from the government definitely helps, it's not what's keeping them learning.

IMO, if you believe that, then one is limiting Hashem and His abilities.

His love is so deep for each person that He is fully aware of all destinies and all our potential and power that exists within us to change ours for the better.
he was quoting a ramban. your opinion is less than meaningless on the matter.

The most recent Israeli elections speaks volumes about how Chareidim are perceived in Israel, and they have been booted in large part from the Knesset.
ignorant comment. the recent israeli election gave the chareidim just as many seats in knesset as they ever have. they have been booted from nowhere. the coalition that was formed didn't include them (for the moment), but that has nothing to do with peoples votes or the "perception" in israel.

Except that their security is guaranteed by their Chazzer-fressing, Mechalel Shabbos, Pritzus-loving bretheren who spill their blood on behalf of the Tzaddikim that live in Meah Shearim.

another ignorant comment. those that live in meah shearim posting anti zionist pashkavilim were there long before their chazzer fressing zionist brethren decided israel would be a convenient place for a zionistic stand. and they never had a need or want for anyones security, other than Gd. 

get your facts straight before spewing.

Yare. I am calm. I don't care for little ppl like this bachur. He disespected anyone who made the bracha. And against who??? Big ppl. People who paskand. How can he? What type of world do u live in that sounds normal to u.

Yare let's get this straight u don't like me and I font give two craps But to thibk its normal for this piece of crap to say things like that? U brought urself to his level. Well done. U lost all respect from me and I'm sure a lot others.

PS. This is calm. :D
let's get a couple things straight.  some of us were created with something called sechel, and we use this gift to ask questions. including, but not limited to, why a bracha was made if there wasn't enough people.  and, yes, it also seems like it might have been a bracha l'vatala and that can be asked too. (those that were able to follow the thread got the answer to these questions; a brilliant concept, learning through questions and answers.) 

if you don't know anything about brachos feel free not to join the discussion.

if you are overly sensitive and can't bear to see questions which are related to a "rabbi who paskened" on topics a bit over your head, feel free to move on to a different thread.

overall, you sound like a brainwashed two year old, and you'd probably do yourself a favor just keeping it quiet at this point.

lol  did you read the article you quoted??

"It is explained that on the one hand, 600,000 or more are expected to attend. On the other hand, one cannot be certain and in addition, one will not actually see 600,000 at one time. Rav Zilberstein stated that in our to be yotzei in line with all opinions, in line with the psak Halacha of the Chassam Sofer and in line with the practice of the Ponevezh Rov regarding the bracha of a Pidyon HaBen. One should learn the Halachos of the bracha and in this limud one should recite the bracha with Shem U’Malchus."

ie, it was not based on a possible (yet unnamed and probably non-existent) source that says shishim ribo could be a rough estimate.
