* As a follow up to our public service announcement of the march on the terrorist's village and family home, Israel National News has the report of what happened. The State of Israel took every action to stop the protest and beat the protesters, yet a small contingent did succeed in penetrating the village and expressing their dismay in the village support for the murder of Jews. Arabs attacking Jews, ok, Jews defending themselves or responding to Arabs, not ok. What's wrong with this message?
* Arutz 7 reports, via the charedi paper Yom Chadash, the most important news in a long while involves a major Torah rabbinic leader declaring “According to Jewish law, it is completely forbidden to hire Arabs, especially in yeshivas,” Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky said. “There is a concern of endangering lives.”
The rabbi continued, explaining, “After all, we are at war with them…and are there not Jews that can work and make a living?” Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky is considered a top Torah sage of the generation in the hareidi-religious community, his words will be followed.
Within my own community, there was immediate talk today about how to change a situation where most local construction has a majority of Arab labor. This is a very big deal which may lead to a significant change in both Arab employment prospects and Jewish ones (skilled Jewish labor has been priced out of the market in Israel, as Arab labor, especially imported ones, are much much cheaper.
