The Only Recommended Cure for Madness

I am physically sick today. There is no medication to heal me from the terror and madness of this illness.

The words which are herein written were not written by my hand.  NO !  They were written from my heart.  A very aching heart.

Have you heard of a yeshiva in a West Bank (Judea & Samaria) settlement of Eli called the B’nai David Academy?  Honestly, I hope you have not, lest you incur the same illness from which I am suffering.  It is extremely contagious.

One of its founders and the head of its pre-military academy, Rabbi Eliezer Kashtiel   (may his name be erased),  teaches the students that “Arabs should become slaves of the Jews because of their stupidity and constant violence.”  He teaches that being slaves to Jews “is the best thing for them. They want to be slaves.  Yes, we are racists. We must believe in racism. The Jewish mind is superior to the Arab mind.”

(Pardon me, please, while I have to pause to vomit).

Following Rabbi Kashtiel’s madness, another of the academy’s teachers, Rabbi Giora Redler (may his name likewise be erased) lauded Adolf Hitler in his classroom. He was recorded as saying “Hitler was the most correct person in every way. Too bad that he was on the wrong side”.

(Forgive me again. I have to vomit again. I cannot help it).

This insane rabbi claimed that the Shoah, the Holocaust, “was not the real Holocaust.  It  is rather humanism and non-Jewish culture  which is the real holocaust”.

(I cannot believe the words which I am writing. I am heart-sick and physically ill since I learned of them).

About three years ago, another founder of the academy, Rabbi Yigal Levinstein, taught his classes that “all gay people are sick and perverted” and one of his colleagues, another teacher at the infamous academy, Rabbi Eli Sadan, believes that women should not be permitted to have a formal education after their elementary class years because they are needed to be in the home.

In a similar vein, in 2018 Rabbi Yosef Kelner taught all students in his classes that “women are weak-minded and they lack a capacity for spiritual matters”.

As you read this report with the actual words that the very, very sick-minded rabbis, a disgrace to our Torah, our culture and our people, have taught Jewish young students, you may ask yourselves “what is the recommended cure for insanity,  for madness?”

For these Orthodox rabbis, monsters and deniers of ethics and morality, for me the only cure that a physician could recommend as the best would be a hail of bullets or strangulation with the straps of their tefillin..

Their sickness is contagious. My heart aches and breaks for the young Jewish-minded young men who have been contaminated by this most terrible sickness.

Besides praying for the end of the B’nai David’s founders and teachers…  what more can I do?
