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.)
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.
