News from the gender wars and sexual abuse

Years after the Norway government finally apologized for its citizens co-executing the Holocaust (the Netherlands has not done so yet), it has now apologized for abuse after the war of German soldiers’ girlfriends. (Norway men in relations with German women were left alone.)

Has the #metoo movement finally reached Israel or is there just not so much sexual molestation by bigĀ  shots here compared to Hollywood?

It took decades and the #metoo movement for Lewinsky to admit that the affair between her and President Clinton might have been sexual abuse because of the power difference between them (he was much older and her powerful boss). Before that, she kept saying it wasn’t because it was consensual. Not wanting to be a victim is a Jewish wish. But now, self-proclaimed feminist and former First-Lady Clinton volunteered that it was not sexual violence because it was between consenting adults. Her arrogance is really catching up with her.

Israeli Gays are excluded for a parenting option – again. Shameless.

Yet, how imperialist of a US gay to sue a Jerusalem pizzeria for denial of service. That’s not how we do things here. We scream at each other at the top of our longs, both parties being convinced of their own truth and then we go on with life. Mr. US wants to be served. Let’s hope the judge throws it out like a US judge dismissed a defamation lawsuit about being called a liar as a rhetorical hyperbole that’s normal in politics.

Make love not war can lead to the end of the Jewish People, being the tiny community that Jews are, on a global scale. It’s better to make peace but not intermarry. Especially, a man marrying out is a disaster for Jewish offspring. But it’s the natural outcome of secularism and human nature. The problem is not love. The love is good. NB: Many Israeli Jews are in danger of intermarriage because they are taught that Gentiles are somehow less. When they then finally meet, it’s love at first sight. So we should teach our children that Gentiles are wonderful people – just don’t marry them. Just like the rabbis recommend not to call pork revolting. Rather say: It smells delicious but what can I do, the L^rd of the universe has forbidden it to me (Torat Kohanim 9:10 on Leviticus 20:26 ).

Pedophile rabbi caught on tape. However, Orthodox leaders in the Netherlands are still too naive and ignorant to believe it.

Let’s close off with some good news. A rabbinic court understood a very difficult marriage situation and was flexible and humanistic.

And feminism seems to have reached the Jewish West Bank.

About the Author
The author is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (DES - Diethylstilbestrol), born in 1953 to two Dutch Holocaust survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork, and holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam). He taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a vegan for 8 years now. * His most influential teachers (chronologically) are: his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach and lehavdiel bein chayim lechayim: Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo and Rav Zev Leff. * Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years he wrote hasbara for the Dutch public. His fields of attention now are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science, Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight Truth), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, GLBTQAI, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), Ecology and Veganism. Many people can't understand or like him because he has such a wide vision that he never fits any specialist's box. But that exactly what others love about him. Many of his posts relate to affairs from the news or the Torah Portion of the Week or are new insights that suddenly befell him. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, reassure the doubters but make the self-assured doubt more. He strives to bring a fresh perspective rather than bore you with the obvious. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds must be disputed. In short, his main political positions are: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, democracy, anti the fake peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, Science, Free Will, anti blaming-the-victim and for down-to-earth optimism. Read his blog how he attempts to bridge any discrepancies. He admits sometimes exaggerating to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quit a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. November 13, 2018, he published his 500st blog post with the ToI. * He likes doing age-appropriate and age-inappropriate things and looks forward to getting to know his timeless mature out-of-the-box soul mate. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
