Israel’s crazies are similar in many respects to our American crazies. The rhetoric is the same while the brand of faith differs.
Rabbi Zvi Yisrael Tau is a senior-level Nationalist Haredi rabbi. The Haredi are ultra-orthodox Jews living somewhere in the 14th century CE. The rabbi harshly criticized the LGBT community and the proposal to integrate women into the IDF Armored Corps combat service. According to the rabbi, the state is becoming a military junta and the rabbis are remaining silent because they are afraid. I am writing about this today because it has an oh-so-familiar feel to it.
A lot of money is being sent by external bodies for [LGBT rights] in order to weaken the country. This is done in a quiet manner so that you won’t feel it, another phase and then another phase. It starts with the lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender people. We remained quiet in regards to them. This was just a pilot. They did a parade of hate and defiance in the holy city of Jerusalem where the Jewish nation resides in the holiest place, a march of sexual deviants in the most horrible way.
It is kind of like the kosher version of Franklin Graham.
Relatively quiet this morning because I was making mischief.
