Heh, that’s Shmarya Rosenberg of “Failed Messiah” site/blog. Criticisng the Haredi is his schtick (NTTAWWT, but something to keep in mind).

re: #1 Sergey Romanov

I figured it was something like that, but if you read between lines there’s probably some truth mixed with his agitprop.

re: #2 Thanos

Sure. Socons will tend to vote for socons is basically it.

Maybe we tend to vote Republican because we agree with Republican positions and disagree with Democratic positions. Israel is certainly included but not the only issue where a religious Jew might not feel that the Demoncratic position reflects his or her value system. We also tend to affect the vote because we do vote at a higher percentage than the rest of the US population (possibly because we realize what a priviledge it is, having been denied participation in the political process in so many other places). By the way, Bet Shemesh is not in the West Bank. If he can’t get even that basic piece of information right, maybe you should take the rest of it with a grain of salt, too. Of course here, politics is a different ball game and doesn’t align at all with the American model. It is heavily influenced by the fact that politicians are beholden to their political parties and not the people who vote (you vote for a party which puts together a list of candidates by horse trading and if the higher-ups don’t like you they can keep you from taking a place in government by moving you down the list, as Bibi did with Moshe Feiglin in the last election) and if you think your Supreme Court is liberal and activist and unrepresentative of its citizenry, its nothing compared to the one here (checks and balances has yet to become part of the political system).

Lucky country!

The US Supreme Court is currently center-right, BTW.

The same Supreme Court in Israel that protected the right of Arabs to representation.

This clown obviously believes in purging the Arabs then.

Reading about Haredim at Shmarya’s blog is like reading about Muslims at Pam Geller’s blog.

Of course I’m Haredi so I’m biased.

re: #7 Alouette

Maybe. I don’t read him. He does seem shrill from what I can gather from the front page.

re: #2 Thanos

What did you find that was useful? I would be surprised if the NY district stayed Republican.
