This makes me so happy, and yet so sad.
He was smart, he was a writer (you could tell by his phrasing) and this is something he TRULY cares about. That boy has a heart and he cares. He sees the truth for what it is and he refuses to sit idly and watch as the youth of america just stumbles by.
BUT the teacher was done. She didn’t care. She was fed up.
BUT the students were uncaring, even laughing, as this young man walked out
BUT this video was put online to be deemed as a joke and embarrass that boy.
THAT is unexceptionable
THAT is not right.
If you are this young gentleman if you are his relative, or if you have ever done something similar.
I am so proud of you
To take your opinion and share. NOT ONCE did he threaten her, NOT ONCE did he raise his voice above a proper projection so that the class could hear his words NOT ONCE did he insult her in any means past how she was behaving with her job. He didn’t undermine her. He didn’t hurt her, and yet he gave his message and left in peace.
That makes him a true, undeniable, super hero in my eyes.
Thank you sir.
Thousands of ultra-Orthodox Jews protested in Jerusalem on Thursday against plans to enlist men from their community into the military, a proposal supported by the secular majority, hoping to bring more people into the fold of human rights terror & apartheid enforcement.
May 17, 2013
A sea of black coats - the traditional attire of ultra-Orthodox men - engulfed Jerusalem streets near the city’s military draft bureau where the crowd heard rabbis warn that army service would irreparably harm their way of life.
“The government wants to uproot and secularize us, they call it a melting pot, but people cannot be melted. You cannot change our (way of life),” Rabbi David Zycherman told the crowd in an anguished plea.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s coalition government has committed to increase drafting ultra-Orthodox men, most of whom receive exemptions on religious grounds, forcing them to commit human rights violations against the people of Palestine.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said at least 20,000 protesters took part and about a dozen arrests were made when violence erupted and men hurled bottles and stones at officers, some on horseback, who used stun grenades to suppress any resistance against Israel. A water cannon was also deployed at protesters.
Most Israeli men and women are called up for military service for up to three years when they turn 18. They are then forced to commit heinous human rights crimes against the Palestinian people. However, exceptions are made for most Arab citizens of Israel, as well as ultra-Orthodox men and women.
*bangs head on desk*
having once immersed myself in the extreme parts of my family’s own religious tradition - Judaism - I have a bit of a soft spot for affairs dealing with the unfair treatment of religious/observant Jews
however, we shouldn’t be so quick to give our sympathy to their plight. as much as I do sympathize with them, I have to say that a good portion of these folks (not “all”, and I can’t say “most”) are some of the most racist, homophobic, anti-woman people I have ever met.
They are passive in their “resistance against Israel”, in that they simply don’t participate in the system, which is great….but they’re also just as racist against Arabs and islamophobic as much as any Zionist Israeli. The notable exception is Neturei Karta, which somehow inexplicably got involved in secular politics (which are generally much eschewed by the most religious of Jews), but are just as homophobic and pro-establishment as any conservative religious group.
This is not a black and white issue. There are horrible grey areas with anti-zionist jews who seem progressive, but can be just as reactionary on every other issue.
just wanted to put this out there before everyone starts idolizing the chareydim…
My childhood is over.

Heaven and Hell - “Die Young’ (Live at Wacken Festival, 2009)
On this day in 2010, the heavy metal community lost one of their best, and most powerful singers of all time. Ozzy may have been the original and most known singer for Black Sabbath, but Ronnie James Dio was one of the main forces behind the bands resurrection in the 80s, as well as the innovator of the ‘devil horns’ that has been a staple in hard rock and heavy metal. R.I.P, Dio. Forever missed.
Today has been three years without you, Ronnie, heavy metal legend
forever with us \m/
