  1. WHY haven’t we, without exception, in unison, renounce and denounce these poshei yisroel and place them in cherem???
    Why is that not happening? the shrek in eretz yisroel with these frequent incidents is truly worrisome.
    we need to respond be’peh echad

  2. If it is the Niturei Karta crowd, then they have been denounced numerous times already. NO point in giving them the publicity they seek by making another machaah.

  3. the reeason they have not denounced neturei karta is because they feel it is needed to have these people doing what they do without them we will forget the big picture similar to what rav shach said about the satmar rebbe…if you dont believe me ask your rosh yeshiva ddas torah yourself…these people do choshuv things

    that someone has to do
    we dont have to support them
    but we must ensure they survive

  4. Klal Yisroel needs rachmei shamayim. It doesn’t matter what sect or which wing we all need rachmei shamayim. We could and should all improve in some way or another. Stop pointing fingers and work on yourselves. We cannot control other, especially by blaming, but we can control our own actions. Klal Yisroel start doing teshuvah now. One small change a day can make the difference.

  5. There seems to be latent support for Neturei Karta.
    Why is this so.
    They are obsessed with zionism, it borders on paranoia.
    Such extreme views are never healthy.
    Ahavas Yisroel is the antidote.
