Purposefully dragging America down

Sep 10, 2013

The nonchalance of Barack Obama as America decays is ideological. Obama intends it. He seeks the weakening of the United States on the global stage. Obama believes that he will be leaving the world a better place by cutting America down to size.

A Rosh Hashana prayer for independence

Sep 4, 2013

We need Heaven’s help in freeing ourselves from the clutches of fickle local politicians and even more fickle and feckless foreign nations. It is increasingly scary to be so utterly and overly dependent on America and the international community.

Leave a Comment

The Chief Rabbinate’s glory is gone. Its legitimacy is shot. Its influence is on the wane. Decentralization of religious services is inevitable, and the only way to force change in the Rabbinate. Rabbis David Lau and Yitzhak Yosef should be under intense public scrutiny and pressure from day one.
