How are chestfed babies fed?

At first I thought they simply want to replace the word breastfeeding with chestfeeding so that it is more inclusive...

If men take enough hormones, they can secrete some liquid. Whether it is safe for babies to drink that liquid is a whole different question.

Swedish activist cancels plan to burn Jewish Bible
The Swedish activist who threatened to burn the Jewish Bible claims he was checking for selective enforcement.
Israel National News
  Jul 15, 2023, 10:54 PM (GMT+3)
Ynet reports that Ahmed Alloush, a 32-year-old Swedish national, planned to burn the Jewish Bible in front of the Israeli embassy in Sweden this Saturday, but refrained from actually doing so.

Alloush arrived at the embassy carrying a lighter and Quran. He did not burn any books, and instead threw the lighter on the ground and delivered an address to the spectators that had gathered for the planned demonstration.


"I never thought I would burn any books. I'm a Muslim, we don't burn books. This is a response to the people who burn the Quran. I want to show that freedom of expression has limits that must be taken into account. I want to show that we have to respect each other, we live in the same society. If I burn the Torah, another the Bible, another the Quran, there will be war here. What I wanted to show is that it's not right to do it."

Alloush said the real reason for the protest was to draw attention to the difference between freedom of speech and offending other ethnic groups.

Swedish authorities had previously approved the demonstration, citing Sweden's constitutional protections for freedom of expression. The decision drew condemnation from numerous Jewish, Christian, and Islamic organizations, as well as Israel's senior political and religious echelons.

Earlier this month, activists burned a Quran, drawing mass condemnation from the Islamic world.

Swedish authorities have since announced legislation to outlaw the burning of holy books.

Agreed, notwithstanding the fact that it might be a fitting punishment for the shoplifter. IIRC there have been news stories of employees who got fired for much less violent reactions to shoplifters.

Besides, looking at the video, he could've easily whacked the other employee in the process accidentally, which could be an even greater liability.

They claim he was threatening that he had a gun.

He was clearly threatening and reaching for his back pocket
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

If he shoots the employee I bet they sue 7-11

Rabbi Jonathan Rietti on transgender, abortion, euthanasia etc

https://rumble.com/v37d4ba-rofim-international-bikur-cholim-keeping-women-healthy-and-families-intact.html?start=3509
Only listened to a little of Rabbi Rietti's part, but I'm a little confused by the rest of the pieces. Has the anti-vax crowd added anti BC pill to the mix now?

hey! I linked directly to Rabbi Rietti's part why did you seek??

But yeah, I think desperate times call for desperate measures, without going into specific BC methods the reality is that everyone is hyper focused on youth BC nowadays and they deem anything safer than accidental births/abortions

i.e. hesitation to tamper with hormone levels at all

Court appeal against Tel Aviv: 'Are only Muslims allowed to separate prayer by gender?'
An appeal against the city of Tel Aviv would see the cities ban on gender separation for Yom Kippur prayers declared illegal.
Israel National News
Sep 18, 2023, 6:43 PM (GMT+3)
Tel Aviv

Following the Tel Aviv Municipality's decision not to allow partitions between men and women during the Yom Kippur prayer at Dizengoff Square, an urgent administrative petition was filed against the municipality.

"The decision marks a new low in the annals of the respondent, in the annals of the state. Since the rule of the British Mandate and disturbances in the Jewish settlement, there has not been heard in the Land of Israel a ban on Jewish prayer accessories on a partition - until now. Until the Tel Aviv municipality was established," reads the petition signed by the "Israeli Forum for Human Freedom and Dignity."

It is also written that "the prayers became a magnet for a wide and diverse public. Religious, traditional, secular - everyone who looked found their place in the moving prayer on the street of a city... The prayers were held every year using a partition, according to Jewish law and tradition from generation to generation."

The petitioners even claimed that when it comes to the Muslim population - the municipality of Tel Aviv allows the existence of segregation - and even carries it out.

"This is the place to point out, that no Muslim prayers are held in the city separately, using a partition, without interference (and they are held legally). Not long ago, a mass prayer and sermon event was held in the city park - Charles Clore Park - in honor of the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Qorban. The fences of none other than the Tel Aviv municipality were used as a partition in the place."

"The mass prayer in honor of the Muslim holiday is held every year, in the same format of separation, in the same city park, using the same fences of the municipality as a partition. Prayers in a similar format are also held on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr. Needless to say, these regular prayers are well known to the municipality."

"The Tel Aviv municipality's attempt to ban Jewish prayer, using a partition, according to the rules of Jewish law and according to Jewish tradition - is invalid. The municipality lacks the authority to create such a ban, out of nowhere."

It was further clarified that "the decision of the municipality that is the subject of this petition was made without authority and is therefore illegal and should be annulled."

"The ban on the use of a partition in Jewish prayer (and specifically Jewish) is not only illegal but also unconstitutional. The ban on holding Jewish prayer according to Jewish law and tradition violates a series of fundamental rights of those who wish to pray, including the rights to freedom, dignity, autonomy, freedom of religion and equality."

Freedom is slavery.
Ignorance is strength.
I like splitting hairs... but war may actually end up being peace when it is against the achzarim so that one is not an achzar on the rachmanim.
Freedom is slavery. I gave a shiur on the definition of cherus around Pesach time. The gist of it was that the less choice you have, the more free you feel. For example, during the week, you have to decide when to work hard and when to take breaks and when to learn Torah or do mitzvos instead of working on parnassa. On Shabbos, though, we cannot work - enabling us to be free to rest and learn without worrying about the future. The cherus of Yetzias Mitrzrayim transcends galus - even though we may be slaves - because the charus / cherus of the Torah provides precise instruction for how to react to any situation.
Lastly, the ignorant out there have held the entire world hostage with their strength. It is just that they would be even STRONGER if they were educated...

Sorry, couldn't resist.  :P
