B"H - [This latest video is the] Same old Zionist Haredi bashing, I'm sorry to say. As far as mathematics are concerned, even in the secular world there is a serious discussion about abolishing the teaching of maths as it is widely viewed as useless, apart for a minute minority of students, like those who want to become accountants or computer scientists for example. As far as English is concerned, doesn't it say right in Balak that we read a few weeks ago, that we shall be a nation that dwells alone? In effect English can lead a student to a lot of the filth of the nations and I think it is far better to keep them away from all that staff that can so easily lead to avodah zara. I personally refused to teach English to a son of a friend of mine, a pure Jewish soul, going against my own economic interests, for this reason. It is truly sad to hear a brilliant mind, like Rav. Bar-Hayim, to speak like this, clearly for preconceived political reasons: How can it be bad for Jewish children to learn Jewish subjects and to have a pure Torah curriculum, when precisely this system kept us and Torah alive for millennia? Let's not succumb to the pressures of the modern world, which is secularism, and let's give our children all and the only Torah they really need to succeed in the Jewish mission, in becoming loyal royalists of Hashem!
