Definitely not a theocracy

As many chilonim in their hysteria continue to rant that Israel is heading toward a theocracy, the Nazareth District Court last Sunday barred the municipality of Afula from holding a gender-segregated musical performance at a public park. The city holds something like 360 events a year. And the Orthodox Jewish community wanted to hold just one event and to set it up so men and women would be separate - you know, according to the halacha. But the court overruled them on the grounds that such was a violation of principles of equality. Some theocracy.

We see that left-wing talk about respect for all cultures only applies to liberal/decadent culture. We see that the charedim in Israel are not a powerful group and need the support of Jews worldwide. 

"Though liberals do a great deal of talking about hearing other points of view, it sometimes shocks them to learn that there are other points of view." William F. Buckley, Jr.


  1. If all frum Jews came home to eretz yisroel where hashem wants us to be, we'll be a supermajority within a generation and the hilonim will become irrelevant

    1. "But more than the most radical reform, Jewish truth is threatened by the movement propagated under the name of Zionism, which, if given ever greater influence would, God forbid, only serve to prolong our Galuth. Yet there are numerous Yehudim who do not shrink back from joining this movement which displays the most sinister 'k'firo' on its banner in the hope to return the homeland under its leadership. --- When will the curse of 'bechia shel chinem' finally fade away? When will the truth of 'zu hakneses yisroel l'aretz' conquer all Jewish hearts? ('Chokhmo U'musar' volume 'Bamidbar-Devarim' p. 39-40. Felheim Publishers [Jerusalem New York 5737/ 1977]"
