    Terrible but so true, that Dmitry - like all of us - are reminded that we Jews are in deep golus.

    and the only place we can run is the Holy Land.
    I take it there will be tons of opposition to this statement, but having made aliyah myself, I can truly say the safest place in the world where Hashem resides more than any other is in Israel.

    Dear, dear, dear, do the evicted homeless people of the former Gush Katif also feel that Israel is the safest place? How ironic! whilst I admit that Eretz Yisroel is the holiest place in the world, I would NEVER want to live in a land where the government that runs my country are Jews just like me yet they hate me openly more than the none Jewish American govenment does. How many countless orthodox Jews were jailed (inclluding my own cousin-not a Lubab) for defending his land and his religion. In America you don’t get arrested for defending your religion.… Read more »

    Do you think that had we been “awake” in 1939 it would have not happened?

    Hashem made a Gezaira then, let’s hope and Daven for it not to happen again. The only way to have any effect on Gzairos like this is to take it on at the source – Hashem

    i think going forward he needs to work with pros. not lubavitchers who think they became experts on boxing.

    you are all so mistaken #1 is right
    Guest
    you are all so mistaken #1 is right

    The Rebbe clearly stated that Eretz Yisrael is the safest place on earth and he based it on a pasuk “Eretz asher tamid einei Hashem….mereishis hashana ad acharis hashana.” Basically Hashem personally watches over eretz yisrael. So you are right #1 that eretz yisrael is the safest place on earth. England is teeming with anti semitism.

    Just because in one measly boxing match there’s a few anti semetic comments and you rant and rave like that!

    It is not few, I know from witness – it was really overwhelming. the feeling was the crowd wanted to lynch them.

    Please check your facts before you spew trash.

    We live in Newcastle and there has been so little anti semitisim shown, infact all the religious leaders get on really well.
    The anti semitism was by outsiders, the local whites were mainly supporting Dmitri.
    To # 14, there was no lynch, and I am not relying on witnesses: I was there.

    I think Dmitriy Salita wants to fight Amir Khan again!

    But: make sure its on a week day not shabbos to you can prepare.

    Have you people — including the Rabbi — lost it? This is a boxing match between a Jewish guy and a Muslim guy … of course people are going to get riled up and shout thing. Big surprise there …

    Cursing the Jew at a boxing match should be the worst of our problems. This article is all hype.

    What kind of crowd do you think
    attends a blood-letting boxing
    match — tzadikkim?
    The Rebbe, MH”M, would NEVER agree to a Jew becoming a boxer. It’s probably forbidden (Not sure-will check) for a Ben Noah.

    By the same token the Rebbe “MH”M” would also forbid someone being a rock star.

    But he didn’t. He encouraged it and told the Piamentas, the Bitons and many more do use the trade they learned before becoming frum for positive purposes.

    That should have made him more resolute to beat an Arab.
