  1. Ha ha ha. Very ingenious. Nu nu. As long as everyone is having a good time & no one is getting hurt. Here in America, Lag Baomer is not such a big deal. Last night was a washout and today is a Sunday. Busy day. Got things to do and places to go. See yah.

  2. Nebbach. These, poor misguided souls. To be kafui tov is tantamount to kefirah in the Ultimate Tov. Hashem Yerachem.

    What a Kiddush Hashem!
    Rashbi couldn”t be prouder
    TO THE ABOVE POST ,YOU ARE FOR SURE AN OFF SPRING OF ISSAV ,TIME TO DO TASHUVA ,BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE FOR YOU. TRULY FEEL SORRY FOR YOUR .

  4. Reporting this makes it seem as if this represents Meas She’arim- it does not! This is a small fringe. It is LH against an entire community to label this “Mea She’arim”. There are more than enough secular outlets which highlight these events to make chareidim look bad (sometimes the even create these events). It is bothersome to see Frum sights report these things

    • Matzav.com has gotten into sensationalism lately. They are trying to be the Frum version of the National Inquirer or NY Post. Pheh.

    • Unfortunately, the rest of the world – especially the Chilonim – will interpret this as representing the Chareidi community. After all, no Chaeidim protested the burning.

  5. How sad! …and we wonder why we’re still in this awful galus. Do these ingrates realize that if not for the Siyata d’Shmaya that the IDF has been given and the security they provide they would be living under Arab rule- maybe they’d rather that. who knows?????????

  6. Before some of you guys go crazy and complain about the flag burners, ask yourselves?
    What did you do to protest and stop the yearly gay parade in Jerusalem.
    What do you do to stop the increase of chillul Shabbos in Jerusalem?
    What did you do to close down tattoo shops in Jerusalem?
    Nothing
    So don’t talk.

    • So right.The flag burners aren’t a danger to anyone or the State.However,the leftists who for example gave lectures to leftist students on how to provoke Israeli soldiers protecting Jews from Arab terrorists, without getting arrested, are the real danger to the Jewish people and the State!

  7. Did you people ever hear of freedom of speech? What do you think the State of Israel had in mind when it made it an Am Chovshi???
