Notorious Chabad-Ordained Rabbi Endorses Right Wing Party

Rabbi Sholom DovBer Wolpo endorses Natfali Bennett and HaBayit HaYehudi party 1-21-2013Sholom DovBer Wolpo called for civil war over settlement evacuation and teamed up with followers of the late Rabbi Meir Kahane in a Knesset run. Now the notorious rabbi – perhaps the most popular rabbi on the Chabad street in Israel today – has endorsed the right wing Zionist Orthodox HaBayit HaYehudi political party in Tuesday's elections.

Rabbi Sholom DovBer Wolpo endorses Natfali Bennett and HaBayit HaYehudi party 1-21-2013

Yeshiva World reports:

Rabbi Sholom Dov Wolpe, who heads the Rabbanei Eretz Yisrael organization, released the organization’s opinion regarding the upcoming election. In the previous general election, Rav Wolpe, a Chabad rav, was on the same list with Baruch Marzel, but Marzel broke away and today holds the third slot on the Otzma Yisrael list.

Rav Wolpe bases his opinion on the teachings of the late Rebbe ZT”L from 35 years ago. He explains that the Ichud HaLeumi and Bayit HaYehudi parties have merged, and he is marveled that it appears instead of three seats, the combined party will have a significant Knesset representation.

Rabbi Wolpe continues to explain the breakdown of the different factions comprising the united list, the sub-factions, adding “the rebbe instructed us to vote for a party that unites”, adding “It is a Kiddush Hashem that a party which stands for Shleimus Haaretz will receive so many seats”.

Wolpe adds that Naftali Bennett gave the rabbonim in his organization personal assurances that the party will not remain in any government that hands over any areas of Eretz Yisrael chas v’sholom. Rabbi Wolpe labels Bennett ‘one who is fighting for Eretz Yisrael Shleima”.

Wolpo has smicha from Chabad and is a Chabad hasid whose books are published and/or distributed by Chabad publishing houses. But he holds no official position in Chabad.

Scotty boy,
Drop dead, you fucking maggot

Wolpe is a legend in his own mind.

He was famously and publicly told off by the Rebbe years and years ago and lost a lot of his luster.

To say he is one of the most popular Chabad rabbi is just shoddy journalism.

Chabad ordained rabbi, talmid hacham and genius.

That being said, I'm still not voting Habait Hayehudi. But there is some weight to be given to his endorsement. If he wasn't Chabad, a meshichist, and a guy who deviated from what the Rebbe told him (by quoting the very words the Rebbe used to set him straight on an issue of PR) he'd easily be counted among the gedolei ha-dor. I know this is hard for people to understand, but he is a man of intense capacity and a great wealth of knowledge.

This is someone who was warned by the rebbe more than once that continuing in his messianic campaigns would be "War against me personally and generally [or Bikhlal ubifrat]" And he knowingly continued...

imagine, a potz from the depth of chabad trash bin.

There is a long article on Naftali Bennett in the current issue of the "New Yorker Magazine". In it, he supports termination of US aid to Israel ($3 billion or more in defense aid), so that Israel would not be subject to US pressures. That is one thing I agree with him on. There are too many people hurting in this country. The money should stay at home. If God gave the land of Israel to Abraham, then let God look after it.

Bennett is not merely some crackpot politician on the fringe of Israeli politics. He is a multi-millionaire computer software developer who is quite popular with the settlers and many religious, as well as with some business people. His religious nationalist party will probably come in third in tomorrow's elections. His goals include annexing a large part of the West Bank (Area C) and turning the rest of the West Bank (Areas A and B) into two Palestinian areas with limited self-government and connected by a special road. These policies will make Israel even more isolated from the rest of the world than it is now. He also wants Egypt to annex Gaza.

His other goals include getting the Haredi to serve in the military and getting them off welfare. Good luck!

As Israel moves to the hard right and has more in common with Glenn Beck than with Bill Clinton, it will continue to lose support in the US.

the rebbe instructed is grannatically incorrect. looking at his "high chair" with spiritual insite of a 5 year old, already brainwashed chabad child you would know the rebbe tells his followers what to do[present tense].Like yoshua he is alive hurrahand hozanna.

grannatically is an even hiher form of grammat as n comes after m , i think? gosh it must be the heat making my head spin and write such trash.

Bennett does NOT want to make haredi serve in the military and has been very open about that, using it to pander to the 20% or so of haredim who vote for non-haredi parties.

SR said: "Bennett does NOT want to make haredi serve in the military."

My mistake. I confused Bennett's party with another nationalist party that DOES support drafting Haredi, "Yisrael Beiteinu". There are 34 political parties running for knesset seats in Israel's election tomorrow.

It is well known that King-Moshiach Menachem M Schneerson and Führer Meir D Kanane hated each another.

It is well understood why. Charismatic Schneerson could not be satisfacted by the role of puppet “King of Israel”, like Victor Emmanuel III under the Duce Mussolini, and devoted Main Kampf follower Kahane, same as Uncle Adolf, could not tolerate even figurehead Kaiser above him.

But how, to the hell, Chabad Mashihists and Kahanists become now so good friends?

Thank you for your insightful and deeply analytical response. All of us that frequent this site are overwhelmed by your incredible intellect and command of the English langugage. (sarcasm off)

Up yours too!

Simply put, I'll be voting for HaBayit HaYehudi.

I'm surprised Shmarya is not complaining that Rabbi Wolpo's letter concludes with blessings to those who will listen to his instructions and vote for Bait Yehudi

I give credit to anyone who writes "the late Rebbe ZT"L."

There too little of the McCoy honesty of "He's dead, Jim."

hilariously funny the bar minan (y'sh) writes his name in yiddish using the letter ayin for segol.
the result in hebrew is read as 'dov ba'ar' or 'an ignoramus bear'.

wolpe a genius?.nice joke
the guy is a nutcase
