there is a caricature that is evolving with Heredi behaviour and responses that is easily laughable had they not been so acutely linked to the political power structrure. But even so, i have know individuals with kind of persona and they are often the most interesting people once your are able to get to know them.

Allan . . . I do not honestly know the detials of every stated incident you have referrenced to from the Torah, but it did make for a very good post. And though i am certain that there are specific contexts within which each incident occurred, your post does serve to remind us that truth is in fact relative.

Allan

Thank you Abracadabra.

Abracadabra

Stick to the Torah and its wonderful G rated family friendly stories such as… ...If the Torah were made into a movie it would be rated XXX with extreme violence. But God forbid that Natalie Portman should shoot a movie in their neighborhood.

Allan - That was a comprehensive list & a great post. So very true!

Haredi Halloween costume. Dirty shirt, unwashed black suit, tzitzit and a cabbage patch doll sewn to the crotch.

Feminista

Maybe the haredis would like it better if the movie was child pornography, and filmed at a mikvah.

Eli, what me messiah?

Franklin Clinton –

I never saw the movie.

Jeff--"And btw, isn't it interesting that rabbis shtupping little boys doesn't offend their sensibilities?"
Monstrosities dont bother them a bit, only whats natural bothers them, in their world wrong is right and right is wrong.

Jeff

That was my fault. I told him she was a princess.

As for your question - are you fucking kidding me?

Franklin Clinton

Wrong two Times !

First, it is Amidala not Leia (I see it is correct now)
Second, Amidala is a queen not a princess

If you are wrong on basic trivia how can we trust you on the Charedi stuff ?

“The scenes being filmed should have been examined first to make sure they don’t offend anybody’s sensitivities,” haredim reportedly wrote.

Well censorship offends my sensibilities. News flash rabbis. Israel is still a FREE COUNTRY. It’s not a Jewish Iran or Saudi Arabia. That means artists get to shoot any kind of movie they want without consulting religious authorities. In other words haredim – mind your own business !

Stick to the Torah and its wonderful G rated family friendly stories such as… Lot impregnating both his daughters. Judah shtupping his daughter-in-law while thinking she’s a prostitute. Rape of Dinah. Attempted seduction of Joseph by Potiphar’s wife. Israelite men being seduced by Midianite women whom Moses then has killed. Pinchas stabbing a couple dead during intercourse. King David the peeping Tom spying on Bathsheba bathing, then having her husband killed so he can marry her. Solomon’s huge harem etc. etc.
If the Torah were made into a movie it would be rated XXX with extreme violence. But God forbid that Natalie Portman should shoot a movie in their neighborhood.

Paint over the windows of those yeshivot and call it a day. Paint over their glasses, too, for double safety. Idiots. They wouldn't know a class act from a hole in the wall.

"Is Israel destined to eventually become the Yemen of the Jewish world, if it survives at all?"

If Netanyahu and his ilk have have their way, yes.

Alter Kocker

You don't pay tax. You are a drag on the economy. You think that the country you inhabit owes you, yet you do nothing for it except whine that your daily prayers keep it going. I think you should all leave and form your own country in whatever wasteland will have you. Get the f**k out of Israel as you are not Jews, nor are you really citizens. Citizenship means that you add to a country. A film crew pays a significant amount in order to shoot on location. All the Haredim do is take up space and demand that hardworking Israelis pay them and fight their battles. They would be better consigned to the deep desert, and Israel would have a better economy and a lifestyle that was not affected by these mewling cowards with a culture of entitlement. In other words, Haredim, SHUT UP OR LEAVE!

Is Israel destined to eventually become the Yemen of the Jewish world, if it survives at all? A country marked by religious fundamentalism and poverty? The Jewish taliban will not be silenced.

OH NO! NOT NATALIE! Leave her alone, people, you hear?!

I can't wait to see her directorial debut. What class and talent at the young age of 32. And, what a sincerely proud Jew. Have you read her interview in the Telegraph about feeling the most Jewish and safe in Israel? (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/film/10401853/Natalie-Portman-interview-for-Thor-A-woman-kicking-ass-isnt-feminist.-Thats-macho.html)

And what about this poetic piece about what she loves about Israel. http://israelmatzav.blogspot.com/2014/02/what-israel-means-to-natalie-portman.html

Please - LEAVE NATALIE ALONE people. If you do what your Rabbis tell you and keep your head down, there'll be no harm not foul and only interesting Art for the world to soon appreciate.

Yochanan Lavie

They complain because they're married to boring Beis Yaakov girls who look nothing like Ms Portman.

Rodin

It doesn't matter what the content of the movie is. Lets face it, to these people all movies are 'treif' and a 'bitul zman'. If only they could figure out how to make a couple of shekels out of this film, then it will become 100% glatt kosher.

Jeff

"Because Portman played her mother Princess Amidala."

And yet, her career survived!

> Look who haredim are protesting now – Princess Leia

Why? Is Carrie Fisher also in this movie? Because Portman played her mother Princess Amidala.

Jeff

And btw, isn't it interesting that rabbis shtupping little boys doesn't offend their sensibilities?

Jeff

"“The scenes being filmed should have been examined first to make sure they don’t offend anybody’s sensitivities,” haredim reportedly wrote."

Oh, please. Every breath drawn by a secular, liberal or MO Jew offends their sensibilities. They exist in a permanent state of moral outrage.
