      If this were an everyday occurrence in Muslim countries where hundreds, thousands and tens of thousands die or executed in such a primative manner than one could make the Case levinson is trying to make but if which I suspect it happens sporadically and not very common then it should be seen in terms of a primitive societies methods of deterrence which seem to work better than American civil and criminal Law deterrent methods.

      A deterrent to what? In saudia arabia there have been beheadings of people who have practiced sorcery, converted out of islam and other such trivial “crimes”. And even if someone is beheaded for supposedly committing a “murder”, why would we trust that the accused was actually guilty especially if it was an infidel foreign worker? You can’t seriously be defending this?

    11. The passage you quoted is a continuation of the immediately preceding matter, about monetary damages. The Torah is often economical about repetition. Torah scholars read this as such: (The value of) an eye for an eye, etc. Our sacred literature supports this. Or are you now claiming to read the minds of the ancient Hebrews and putting yourself above our most learned and dedicated writers of the Mishnah?

      @ yamit82:

      I don’t think you know what you are talking about. Torah given Mt. Sinai over 3300 years ago and the Mishnah, redacted 220 CE by Rabbi Yehudah haNasi. For most of the period between Sinai and Rabbi Yehudah haNasi there were no rabbis as we have come to understand it. Moses was commanded to appoint seventy elders to help him rule over the people (Numbers 11:16).
      There also existed a hierarchy of local judges over tens, hundreds, and thousands (Exodus 18:21).
      Any case too difficult at one level would be passed on upwards (Exodus 18:26).
      As in any legal system over time a body of precedents and legal principles developed telling in detail how the Commandments were to be put into practice. In case of doubt the Israelites were commanded to go to the authorities and Sages that would exist in their time. This was the foundation of what later became the Talmud.

      Or are you now claiming to read the minds of the ancient Hebrews and putting yourself above our most learned and dedicated writers of the Mishnah?

      This is a sophist and specious argument based on your own ignorance not mine. I said nothing in contradiction to any normative Talmudic understanding of the Law, and since you think otherwise show me where I did.

      Problem is most of your Chassidim The “religious” Jew? Nay, say rather the Orthodox practitioner of Jewish ritual whose sojourn in an Exile two millennia old has corrupted and perverted the most basic of real Jewish values. Bearded and piously payotic; or cleanshaven and woolly skullcapped, they join with all the others in the ecumenical worship of the Golden Calf of our times: The Golden Exile. And so they invent all kinds of rationales, all cloaked in a tallit that is all blue. “Israel is also Exile…” “This is not the beginning of the redemption, merely the footsteps of the Messiah…”

      Let’s talk Talmud: “Mishne Torah, Sefer Shoftim, The Laws of Kings and Their Wars, Chapter 5, Halakha 12.”

      “At all times, a person should dwell in Eretz Yisrael, even in a city whose population is primarily of worshippers of idols, rather than dwell in the Diaspora in a city whose population is primarily Jewish.

      In that all who leave [the land] for the Diaspora is as though he worships idols, as it is says: They have driven me out today from dwelling in the heritage of G-d, saying, ‘Go serve other gods.’ [Shmuel I 26:19] Similarly, [Ezekiel's (13:9) prophecies of] retribution state: They shall not come to the Land of Israel.” The Jew living outside the Land, constitutes the worshipping of idols because doing so denies the foundations of the Torah, i.e., the enactment of the Torah, and the living by the statutes of the Law. The project of enacting the Torah can only be legally accomplished in the Land as defined by the Law.

      Mishne Torah, Sefer Shoftim, The Laws of Kings and Their Wars, Chapter 5, Halakha 11.

      “The Sages said: The transgressions of one who dwells in Eretz Yisrael are forgiven, as it says: The inhabitant shall not say, ‘I am sick.’ The people who dwell there shall be forgiven for their transgressions. [Isaiah 33:24]”

      “Even one who walks four cubits there will merit the World to Come and one who is buried there receives atonement as though the place in which he is were an altar of atonement, as it says: His land will atone for his people. [D'varim 32:43] [In contrast, the prophet, Amos [Amos 7:17], used the expression] You shall die in an impure land — a prophecy of retribution.”

      Hmmm, do I sit here in he Land of Israel and challenge your religious atheists? You betcha.

      Problem with most Chassidim is they have stopped LEARNING Tanach and have rejected the curriculum for Jewish study laid out in Avot 5:(21-22)
      21. Ben Bag Bag would say: Delve and delve into it, for all is in it; see with it; grow old and worn in it; do not budge from it, for there is nothing better.

      Ben Hei Hei would say: According to the pain is the gain.

      22. He would also say: Five years is the age for the study of Scripture. Ten, for the study of Mishnah. Thirteen, for the obligation to observe the mitzvot. Fifteen, for the study of Talmud. Eighteen, for marriage. Twenty, to pursue [a livelihood]. Thirty, for strength, Forty, for understanding. Fifty, for counsel. Sixty, for sagacity. Seventy, for elderliness. Eighty, for power. Ninety, to stoop. A hundred-year-old is as one who has died and passed away and has been negated from the world.

      @ Bernard Ross:


      the inauthenticity of “Palestinian” ethnicity was publicly reiterated — due to economic necessity — by Fathi Hammad, then Hamas’ Minister of the Interior and of National Security, as part of his demand that Egypt provide more diesel fuel to Hamas-ruled Gaza:

      “Allah be praised, we all have Arab roots; and every Palestinian, in Gaza and throughout Palestine, can prove his Arab roots — whether from Saudi Arabia, from Yemen, or anywhere. We have blood ties. So where is your affection and mercy? . . . Personally, half my family is Egyptian. We are all like that. More than 30 families in the Gaza Strip are called [by the last name] Al-Masri [“the Egyptian”]. Brothers, half of the Palestinians are Egyptians and the other half are Saudis. Who are the Palestinians? We have many families called Al-Masri, whose roots are Egyptian. Egyptian! They may be from Alexandria, from Cairo, from Dumietta, from the North, from Aswan, from Upper Egypt. We are Egyptians. We are Arabs. We are Muslims. We are a part of you.” (Excerpt from speech aired on Egypt-based Al-Hekmah TV, March 23, 2012)

      “In this context, it is noteworthy that, more than 3,000 years ago, God declared to Moses: “They [Children of Israel] provoked Me with a non-god, angered Me with their vanities; so shall I provoke them with a non-people, with a vile nation shall I anger them.” (Deuteronomy 32:21)”

      In sum, the unending deluge of public declarations by the gentile nations (and by the international organizations through which they interact) that portions of the Land of Israel are actually the “Occupied Palestinian Territories”, as well as the general hostility and ostracism experienced by Israel in all manner of international forums, has nothing to do with international law and everything to do with international politics, which — in Israel’s case — is driven by a toxic mixture of Jew-hatred and economic self-interest. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that, in an attempt to adorn the War against Zionism with a veneer of diplomatic legitimacy, the international community has been forced to falsify and thereby subvert international law.

      Accordingly, despite the layers of falsehoods, half-truths and distortions that have encrusted this subject matter over many past decades, international law remains Today as it was in 1920:

      All of cis-Jordania (as well as the Golan Heights portion of trans-Jordania) collectively belongs exclusively to the Jewish people.

      Consequently, in reality, it is the Arab population thereof — being the descendants of the massive 7th Century colonialist Islamic invasion force emanating from ancient Arabia — which is occupying Jewish Land.

      However, if the World were to complain that Israel’s possession of Judea, Samaria, and the eastern portion of Jerusalem (and formerly of Gaza), even if lawful, nevertheless deprives the “Palestinian” Arab population thereof of a separate independent homeland, then the World should be reminded that the modern State of Jordan (its precursor having been rendered Judenrein by the British Mandatory authorities in 1922) — constituting 77% of former Mandatory Palestine and, in consequence thereof, overwhelmingly comprised of a “Palestinian” Arab population — is already that separate independent homeland.

      LOL,beggars coming up with a line :) I read this before. I agree with everything you wrote. My long suffering unanswered mystery is why the state of Israel NEVER mentions the only internationally guaranteed,globally declared, “..Jewish right of settlement west of the Jordan River”. I understand everyone else hiding from this fact, I just dont understand Israel. Even if they dont want YS and are willing to give up some for “peace” it should be stated as it is a libel to claim illegality. Furthermore, if they are willing to waive the only interest that global jewry has in YS then they should resign from the position of representing global jewry and allow a different entity to represent “global Jewry” who will not exhibit an obvious conflict of interest. IN that way Israel can pursue whatever are its perception of its interests without Jewry losing their one remaining interest.

      Absolutly right, fingers need to be pointed, J’accuse! But who will point a finger, the state of israel cant even say the words “…encourage close Jewish settlement west of the Jordan River” for its own people.

    23. Bernard Ross says:

      yamit82 Said:


      In conclusion from that link:

      Under Trust law, the Trustee is obligated to administer the Trust Corpus on behalf of and for the sole benefit of the Trust Beneficiary in compliance with the Trust’s governing instrument; and when the Trust terminates, the Trust Beneficiary thereby becomes the legal owner of the Trust Corpus. Applied to the mandatory system, this means that, when a mandate terminated, the resident population (or chosen subset thereof) thereby became sovereign over the administered territory thereof.

      for those Jews, and others, who need to answer the argument of legality, this appears to me to be the simple conclusion. The implications of these conclusions is what those who declared and guaranteed the basis of the mandate must be demanded to fulfill their agreements with the Jewish people. They may refuse, but they must be demanded.

    24. Bernard Ross says:

      Further to my last post: a demand that the guarantors of the mandate, with obligations continuing, fulfill their agreements with the Jewish people will expose their hypocrisy. What answer can they give? Yet Israel makes no demands, or even a wimpish request. There is no reason to protect these whores from the ridicule and derision which they deserve for reneging on their agreements like two bit hucksters and frauds.

    27. Bernard Ross says:

      Honey Bee Said:

      How are you going to have the world comply with Israel’s “Mandate”.

      Like any other obligation I would start with a request, then a demand, and then a suit in the relevant Jurisdictions. I would start suits in each nation starting with Israel, US, UK,and every nation which signed san remo. They are principles or a guarantors of the treaty. Therefore each nations govt who mentions illegal Jewish settlement can be sued to cease the policy, How have govts been sued in the past, how was segregation struck down and enforced? Right now I haven’t heard any one even ask those govts, in diplomatic channels, to cease spreading lies about the legality of jewish settlement on the west bank. this is a good time to start by Israel stating “what are you idiots talking about, you are the same a******s who stated and agreed that Jewish settlement west of the Jordan river is to be encouraged.” Israel would be a good place to start because its policy of hiding and ignoring those rights is the prime problem. It is not Israel’s mandate: the unfulfilled settlement rights on the west bank belong to global jewry. Perhaps it is inconvenient for Israel to extend her sovereignty thereto but the state’s lack of sovereignty over the area does not cancel jewish rights. IN fact as the administrator of the territory which it does not claim, it still has an obligation to encourage jewish settlement.(they dont have to be Israeli jews)

    28. Bernard Ross says:

      @ Honey Bee:further to my last reply. even if Israel had not invaded the west bank as a defensive war it had a right to enforce the jewish settlement rights as succesor representative of the jewish people. During the Jordanian occupation Jewish settlement was banned as it is in trans jordan. Just as affirmative action was implemented to mitigate the damages of segregation so should there be an affirmative action program to massively settle jews in the shortest time so as to mitigate the damage of the Jordanian AND the Israeli occupation. I suggest something similar to the US homestead Act.

      Or are you now claiming to read the minds of the ancient Hebrews and putting yourself above our most learned and dedicated writers of the Mishnah?

      @ yamit82:

      A few weeks ago we celebrated Tu B’Shevat, the holiday of the trees. School children sing songs praising the Land of Israel and thanking Hashem for its fruits. Families go on field trips throughout the country. When it is not a Sabbatical Year, saplings are planted with great joy and spirit. And festive meals of thanksgiving, highlighted by a cornucopia of fruits of the Land, grace our tables.

      This is all missing in the Diaspora because Diaspora Judaism is missing the Land of Israel. Judaism can only be complete in the Land of Israel. There are two types of commandments in the Torah – the commandments that are dependent upon the Land of Israel, and those commandments which are not. Every commandment which depends upon the Land of Israel may only be performed in the Land. The other mitzvot can be performed anywhere (Kiddushin 36B). However, the Ramban teaches that the true place of performance for all of the commandments is only in the Land of Israel (Ramban, Commentary on the Torah, Bereshit, 26:5; Devarim, 11:18). Everywhere else, when a Jew performs a commandment, he is merely going through the motions so that he won’t forget how to do them during his exile in foreign lands (Sifre, Ekev, 11:18, and Rashi, Devarim, 11:18. Also, Ramban).

      The fourth chapter of the book of Vayikra (Leviticus, 4:13) deals with special kinds of sin offerings. Situated between the offerings of a High Priest who sins, and a King who sins, are the laws of the sin offering for the whole congregation. The tractate Horiot explains that this is case where “the majority of the Great Sanhedrin makes a mistake” in deciding the law which causes the majority of the congregation to transgress. We see here that the Torah itself recognizes the possibility that the majority of the greatest Torah scholars can make a mistake.

      HaRav Tzvi Yehuda illustrated this with the example of the tragic sin of the Spies who rebelled against Hashem in the wilderness after the Exodus by refusing to continue on to conquer and settle the Land of Israel. They were the outstanding Torah scholars of their time, the heads of the Sanhedrin, the chiefs of the tribes, all important men, yet they erred in placing their personal feelings ahead of Hashem’s command to conquer the Land of Israel, and this brought about a great Divine wrath and the death of the generation in the wilderness (See, “Mesillat Yesharim,” Ch.11, in the discussion on Honor).

      Everyone has a choice. He can join the ranks of the Spies and encourage people not to go on aliyah to Israel, nor to settle in all of its borders, or he can join the ranks of Calev Ben Yefuna and Yehoshua Ben Nun and become a builder of the Jewish Nation in Israel.

      I think that what was the beginning of the end was the 1954 supreme court decision which led to the commitment of federal troops to enforce desegregation. Brown, who has been a “muslim” for a while now, is languishing in jail; he may have been a poster boy and a lightning rod but I think he had little real impact. Fed troops, emanating from law, was the end.

      @ Honey Bee: I was in the US until 1968. the states that wanted segregation could have got up the forces to deal with any rap brown. The problem was that the feds were physically obstructing local govts. Without fed protection brown and the others would have been lynched early on. without the feds brown would have been arrested and ended up with an accident. Washington and federal forces backed desegregation and civil rights against southern local govts. read about Browns noisy but unimpressive life since then. I dont even remember which courthouse steps or can even find a picture now.Honey Bee Said:

      they understood violence

      of course but the real violence threatened was from the feds who ceased to protect them and instead supported and protected the opposition
