A curfew for youth? What is the world coming to? The world has already 'arrived' and it is not at a good station.
Many religious men have the problem of what to do when a woman sits next to them.
A few solutions to prevent this situation.
1) The inflatable mechitzah (TM). Pull the tag, and it inflates to full size to separate you from the woman
sitting next to you.
2) The NY subway approach:
People who are afraid of being harrassed on the NY subway talk to themselves out loud,
so others will think they are missing a few marbles and will stay away.
3) 10 raw cloves of garlic for breakfast.
4) Wear a fake beard, wires coming out of your briefcase, and mumble on the phone in Arabic.
Of course, the simplest solution is to sit next to another man.
'Miracles in Gaza' is the name of this very inspiring video. Like an onion, there are layers and layers one can peel to see different aspects of Israel. Right now, Israel just finished celebrating the miraculous and joyful holiday of Chanukah, and school has started back as of today. The news is rife with a group of violent Haredi extremists called the Sikrikim. We need more rain in Israel. The Arab Spring is turning into a winter. And in international news, Iran is still a major worry to Israel and the West. Peel away all the brown paper lining of the onion, and one remembers that G-d put the Jewish people here in Israel for a purpose, and He promises us that He will be with us if we keep the Torah. It's a miracle, that we in Israel can live, go to school, shop in malls, celebrate birthdays and weddings, barbecue in our yards, learn at universities, travel on vacation, and pursue our hobbies and interests, when we are surrounded by hundreds of millions of Jew-hating Islamists who want to slit our throats and throw us into the sea. It's a miracle that we are alive here, and even more of a miracle that we survive so WELL here with a special quality of life, despite the glassy-eyed, salivating, rag heads out there with sharpened knives that surround us.
While we have a lot we can worry or complain about, we have a lot we need to be grateful for too. We need to remember how blessed we are, and that living in this tough neighborhood of the Middle East, that G-d is still with us. We just need to look for Him. -And sometimes we can't help but see Him and His handiwork.
Now, watch this inspiring video, of how G-d accompanied our soldiers into battle. I don't think I got teary-eyed because my own son is now in the paratroopers. I got teary-eyed because I too can get distracted by all the 'buzz' of the news, the kvetching, the arguments, etc... and forget to see the bigger picture. You decide for yourself where you choose to stand, and what you choose to perceive when you look at life in Israel. But always remember, G-d is with you where you let Him be, where you make space for Him. He will even go into battle with our sons in Gaza.

The state turned out to be a "Jewish' one, with it's national anthem a testimony to the two thousand year 'hope' that the Jews would return to Israel to be a JEWISH state. Jewish Holy Days like Shabbat are a dagger in their travel and shopping plans, and Yom Kippur is a nuisance where just about everything is closed. Passover is a pain, having to go out of your way to find bread, as G-d forbid they should not eat leavened products for a whoooooole week.
The radio opens up every morning with the 'Shema Yisrael' prayer. The flag looks like a Jewish Prayer Shawl with a Jewish Star in it, and drat, 'That One' up in heaven keeps making miracles happen - with a 6 day war and the liberation of even more Holy Land being returned to and re-settled by Jews. And worse, the IDF is seeing a majority of Kippah wearing officers, and the population in Israel is moving towards being religious - due to their birth rate and the Tshuva movement.
...And now, the Settler-Jews are fighting back, not letting us make them homeless. The nerve!
Enough! A disgrace! It has to stop! If we are going to be a Jewish State, no one in the world will like us. We won't be part of the 'Boy's club'. We are the 'Enlightened ones'! How do we handle these 'Jews'?
It's time for an Israeli Spring!
The Arabs are doing it, so why can't we? We can now shirk off this Jewish baggage! Don't worry about there being a civil war, as a civil war is between brothers, and those religious settlers are not my brothers.

Boycott the Settlements!
"They hate the Sabbath and they hate the laws of Judaism and they hate the yeshivas and they hate the rabbis. And they hate being Jewish and they hate God and they hate Zionism and a Jewish state and the need to be different - and they hate Kahane for representing all this. And they hate the bitter reality of hundreds of thousands supporting and marching for and believing in all the things that they hate, and so they are prepared to use any and all means to destroy the Jews and Jewishness. And the most frightening and dangerous thing is that, in all this ugliness, I have seen and recognized the face of Hatred and Murder Past." -Rabbi Meir Kahane
Yes, the Left may indeed be marking the start of their 'Israeli Spring'. But if they don't succeed, maybe they'd like Miami or Boca Raton? They don't have to be Jews there, and they can leave their 'Jewish' baggage behind in Israel.

Walid Shoebat is an former Muslim Arab terrorist & whistleblower. He joins me on my show once a week to tell us what they are saying in the Arab media, that they don't say to Western audiences. Below, with his permission, I am posting his latest piece on my blog. It is only wise, to know what 'the other side' is saying. In Arabic.

Tamar Interviews Rival Blogger Fishman !
Listen to the interview yourself and decide, as he speaks about his life in Hollywood, and then how he came to Israel and Torah observance. He then speaks about his books, and his Jewish Sexuality website. SSSSHHHHHH!!!!! I dare you to go there. Whatever you do, DON'T click HERE. I warned you!
When I speak about Tzvi's blog being number 1, and mine probably number 2 on the site, I am actually happy. Because being number 2 means I always have fun having someone to compete with. Being at the top means you can only go DOWN, DOWN, DOWN. Poor, poor Tzvi. - Or is that what I just tell myself to make my pathetic self feel better? heh heh
Tzvi Fishman # 1 'Then', .....and 'Now': Tzvi Fishman STILL # 1 ....Drat!!!!! I'll beat him one day.
Anyway, if you ever wanted to know what Fishman sounds like, I think you will be surprised. He doesn't sound like what he writes. ...Or is it just my imagination?
Leave your comments below, and make me NUMBER 1 blogger!!!!! Please? Pretty please? With sugar on top???? Aw, c'mon!!!!! This isn't funny anymore. Leave your comments! <sniff sniff> Yah, I am right, I'm pathetic.
