The destruction of Migron is just another proof of the State of Israel not being Jewish

B"H - The destruction (pogrom in Russian) of Migron is just another proof of the State of Israel not being Jewish: Jew, withdraw your blind, unconditional and unjustified support from this secular, erev rav State and pretend our prescribed Torah institutions, a Jewish king to run the executive, the Sanhedrin and righteous courts in every village all over the Land to administer justice and the Cohen Gadol to run the Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem! Democ(k)racy may be good for the gentiles, we Jews are told by our One G-d to do Torah in the Land, not this fake, democratic republic. Rabbis, lead us to the Truth, not to where your pay-off-money comes from!

Israeli Jew may take Facebook to court on Jewish rights violation soon

Facebook’s waging war on my Hebrew name - A Case Summary in Sixteen Points
1. I am an observant (Orthodox) Jew and a Jewish activist and I opened a Facebook account under my Hebrew name, Ariel ben Yochanan, some seven years ago.
2. Everything was fine, until probably an anti-Semite must have reported me and Facebook obliged by disabling my account on June 15 ’17 saying that:
 "It looks like you're using a name on Facebook that goes against our policies. Can we update your name on Facebook to Andras Bereny?
If we update your name, Andras Bereny will be the name people see on your profile and anywhere else your name appears on Facebook (ex: tagged photos, past posts, search).

If you're already using the name you go by in everyday life, select Don't Update and we'll help you confirm your current name".

3. Andras Bereny is the name on my ID, bank account, etc. and we Jews call it a “slave name”.

4. So, of course I clicked on Don't Upgrade, as on Facebook I want to appear under my Hebrew name, with which we are getting called up to the Torah in the synagogue and under this name I run my blog, the Torah Revolution, comment on Jewish and on Torah issues and write  articles. I provided Facebook with a link to such an article,


where the editor even explains that I write under my Hebrew name, but Facebook didn’t bulge, they keep my account blocked, as if preventing the  use of my Hebrew name was their hidden and evil mission.

5. In the following I am going to show that a Jew’s Hebrew name is an outward sign of his Judaism, just like wearing a kipah (yarmulke), tzitzit (fringes), talit (prayer shawl) or tefilin (phylacteries) and that therefore preventing its use is allegedly unlawful, in as much as it allegedly goes against the principles of Freedom of Religion. The maintenance of the guarantees under the Freedom of Religion is extremely important, especially for minorities, like the Jews, who were limited and persecuted by enemy nations in most of recorded history. We don’t want Facebook in particular and the corporate world in general to be allowed to go down again on this road.

6. I will prove the point in two ways:

 The first way is to say that there is a Midrash (Jewish religious literature) that sheds light on the importance of a Hebrew name in Judaism. From it we learn that the very redemption from our slavery in Egypt is merited in function of three attributes:
a) We kept our language,
b) We kept our Hebrew names and
c) We kept our Jewish clothing.
7. In view of this we can conclude that not even the Egyptians did to us during our slavery up until about 3300 years ago what Facebook is doing to me now, namely bullying me under the pretense of their “policies” to renounce the use of my Hebrew name!
8. As a consequence, we see that keeping our Hebrew names has a special place, significance and importance in Jewish tradition (Mesorah), that even many non-religious Jews keep, irrespective of whether it is registered or not registered, documented or not documented, used for utility bills or not used for utility bills, all alleged limitations that Facebook unlawfully places on an outwardly sign of one’s Jewish identity. For a better understanding of this issue please read the following four articles available online, or google “Hebrew names in Judaism”:
- Language, Dress, and Names – Jewish continuity in a nutshell

- Did the Jews assimilate when they were in Egypt?

- Torah Attitude: Parashas Bo: Three areas of excellence

- Judaism & the Power of Names
http://www.aish.com/jw/s/Judaism--the-Power-of-Names.html

9. The other way to establish that Hebrew names are an integral part of our Jewish identity is to observe:
a) That only Jews have Hebrew names;
b) That almost all Jews have Hebrew names and
c) That non-Jews do not have Hebrew names.
10. Once we establish that a Hebrew name is an integral part of the Jewish identity, it becomes immediately obvious that negating a Jew the right to use his or her Hebrew name is allegedly anti-Semitic in nature and if it is done in the name of company policy, it is the company policy that is allegedly anti-Semitic, even if not intentionally so, and it must therefore be changed or repealed altogether without delay under the principle of Freedom of Religion: The Hebrew name of a Jew is NOT a “fake name”, as it is presently treated by Facebook, it is one of the manifestations of the identity  of a person as a Jew, just like wearing a kipah, tzitzit, talit or tefilin!
11. The latest in this tragic, anti-Jewish escalation is that Facebook changed the message that appears on my log in page and now they are directly prompting me to sign in as Andras Bereny: I firmly believe it is my sacrosanct Jewish right to be able to use and be known by my Hebrew name and be listed on Facebook under Ariel ben Yochanan. It’s not what they call a “fake name”. It is my Hebrew name and I maintain that its use is protected by the very principles of Freedom of Religion. I will not renounce of its use, even if they put me on the wheel or burned me at the stake alive, like their presumed ideological predecessors did during the times of the Inquisition.

12. My account has more than 1500 Facebook friends, out of which more than 200 are “followers”, meaning that they want to see my posts and read my comments: Blocking my account harms them as well, not only me.

13. With some contacts, like old class-mates, friends and associates, my Facebook account is the only means to keep in touch, as they don’t know my email address (arielbenyochanan@hotmail.com) and I don’t know theirs.

14. I would like to mention here that my account was disabled by Facebook from one minute to the next, with no warning, so I was not even given the possibility to collect and save the emails of my contacts or to warn them of what was coming.

15. One email in particular I received from a friend said that he got “frightened” seeing my account disappear. What right Facebook has to frighten my friends? Another person started to read a private message from me and when she returned to finish reading it, it was gone, disappeared from her screen: A traumatizing experience for which there is no excuse!

16. I therefore require the following three actions to be taken:

a) Facebook must re-activate my account immediately, under my Hebrew name, Ariel ben Yochanan;

b) Facebook must issue a public statement in which it apologizes for its alleged anti-Jewish policies concerning their limiting the use of the Hebrew names of Jews and

c) Facebook must pay me damages, effective, moral and punitive. The idea is to make sure that Facebook never negates a basic Jewish right to a Jew again, like it allegedly does to me now, by preventing me from being listed under my Hebrew name on their website.

Why would anyone expext anything different? Hashem runs the show, not Dagan!

B"H - When the religious Zionists will pour Torah on the Land for the glory of Hashem, instead of concrete for their own glory, when they will stop importing evangelical xtians, instead of Jews to work the Land, THEN Hashem may decide to unleash His divine peace on us, may He be blessed and not the so called security apparatus of the secular State that runs jeeps on the Shabes and so on and so forth, don't get me started!

Intimidation to promote their wine trade

B"H -
Pity that many of these wineries use mainly North American evangelical so called volunteers to harvest their grapes, instead of local Jewish workers. As Jews are not allowed to benefit from idolatry, these wines are allegedly prohibited, even if kosher certified. The probable reason the Canadian Food Board allowing these products to be marked the way they are, is to destroy their Jews, as kedushim, bris, weddings, etc. performed with these wines are allegedly compromised. By providing you with
this information I am putting myself in danger, as intimidation to protect xtian interests by Zionists can be seen as widespread

Shavuot: The Torah Belongs to Us by Rabbi Eli Mansour

B"H -  The Gemara in Masechet Shabbat (88b) tells that when Moshe went up to the heavens to receive the Torah, he did not, shall we say, have an easy time. Instead of having the “red carpet” rolled out for him and receiving a warm welcome, he received a fierce argument. The angels vehemently protested G-d’s decision to give the Torah to human beings. They argued that the Torah was a “Hemda Genuza” – a precious treasure that had been with G-d in the heavens ever since the time of creation. Why, they asked, should it be given to lowly humans? They insisted that its rightful place was in the heavens. In the end, of course, Moshe successfully resisted this challenge, and G-d gave us the Torah.

The very last time I was privileged to hear Hacham Ovadia Yosef ZTL speak, during a trip to Israel in the final year before his passing, he offered a beautiful explanation of this story.

There is a law in Halacha called “Bar Mesra,” which establishes that a person who sells real estate must offer the right of first refusal to his neighbor. Thus, for example, if a person is selling his home, before putting it on the market, he must offer the property to his neighbor. Only if the neighbor is not interested in purchasing the property, or if the neighbor is unwilling to pay the market price for the property, may the homeowner put the house up for sale. The reason for this Halacha is that the land has special value to the neighbor. He can, if he so desires, combine the two properties into one large property. Given the unique benefits that the property offers to the neighbor, the Sages enacted this law requiring a seller to offer his neighbor the right of first refusal.

On this basis, Hacham Ovadia explained the angels’ claim. Before G-d went ahead and “sold” the Torah to Beneh Yisrael, the angels insisted on exercising their right of first refusal. As they reside in the heavens, they felt entitled to lay claim to the Torah, and to prevent G-d from offering it to human beings far away on Earth.

But if this is the case, then why were the angels mistaken? If they had a legitimate Halachic argument for why the Torah should remain with them, why did they lose their case?

Hacham Ovadia answered that there is an important exception to the rule of “Bar Mesra.” Namely, if the seller’s son is interested in the property, then, according to the ruling of the Rif (Rabbi Yishak of Fez, Morocco, 1013-1103), the son must be given precedence, even over the neighbor. Meaning, if both the neighbor and the son want to purchase the property and are prepared to pay the market value, the son is given precedence.

This easily explains why the angels were wrong. Although the angels were the Torah’s “neighbors,” as they resided in the heavens, Beneh Yisrael are the Almighty’s children, as Moshe Rabbenu proclaims in the Book of Debarim (14:1), “You are the children of Hashem your G-d.” Therefore, we are given the right of the first refusal, so-to-speak, and we were given the Torah in spite of the angels’ opposition.

When we celebrate our receiving the Torah on Shabuot, we celebrate the fact that the Torah belongs to us, that we, as the Almighty’s children, are its rightful owners.

On Dr. Abramson explaining the world "Jerusalem day"



B"H - Dr. Abramson, no matter how one feels about the underlying events, the Zionists inserting their propaganda "yoms", days, into our Jewish calendar is utterly arrogant and unacceptable. Hashem hates arrogance more than any other traits and so should we. This is one. Two, why exactly do you call Israel a Jewish state, when in reality it is a democratic republic with ant-Torah, democratic institutions having their headquarters right in the Jerusalem the Zionists celebrate, like the so called "supreme court" with Arab judges sitting on it or its army, the IDF. with Arab officials serving in it? What is Jewish about that? Three, expending the same logic, why in the world your, by the way excellent videos, you show off the State's, what I call usurpation lag? Are you guys in the States worship G-d, immaterial, apolitical, or the secular and Hellenist State of Israel with its usurped Jewish symbols and with its usurped Jewish narrative?

On the Zionists celebrating their "Yerushalayim day"

B"H -  This is all Zionst propaganda! Since when ordinary people have the right in Judaism to introduce new "yoms" to our Jewish calendar? The fact that the Zionists do so is indicative only of their shameless arrogance, which is exactly the trait Hashem hates the most. Rabbis, you are destroying  your reputation with your own corruption!
