    Chabad Rabbi: I’m for Obama

    Popular British Chabad Rabbi Yitzchak Schochet, who lived in America for several years, says about the U.S. presidential candidates: "Each have their strengths and weaknesses, but on balance I would go with Barack Obama because I'm a firm believer in change." He went on to call John McCain's VP pick Alaska Governor Sarah Palin "an airhead" Full Story

    Shame, shame on Yitzchok Schochat! Just because an individual has a good “mouth-piece”, does not give him (or her) a reason to “mouth off”. When he speaks on Torah issues with eloquence, I applaud him and we are all proud. However, when he oversteps his bounds, (and trips all over himself) as he has clearly done here, he must be repremanded. Even though he is not an official Chabad spokesperson, people do connect him to Lubavitch. As such, he and others like him, have a major responsibility to this great and certainly, politically “unbiased” movement. Surely he must know that… Read more »

    Obama has never been in office, but the Republicans have and look what they did to our country.

    Look what happened in our county under their watch: 9/11, 2 wars, Kartina, Hamas elections, Iran on the rise, economic breakdown

    All I know is that McCain sounds like the same

    All Religious Jews, (and non Jews) let alone Chassidim and Shluchim, who are voting for Obama, or worse, endorsing and encouraging others to vote for him, are doubtlessly SELF HSATING JEWS. May G-d have pity on you. There are hundreds of reasons why this man should NOT receive the support of the religious/Jewish community. Anyone who has not figured this out by now is sadly OUT OF TOUCH, or does not care about Torah Values or the Jewish homeland. I suggest that you start educating yourself. This youtube video would be a good place to start. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CM-KEv8zxMA You need to… Read more »

    HUSSAIN OBAMA VS. RUBASHKIN

    I wonder if the well informed Yitzchak Schochet is. If he knows about “Jew Lover Obama” and his statements, while on the campaign trail, against the Rubashkins. Obama, the presidential candidate, found the time and opportunity, to attempt to destroy, chas vesholom, a Jewish family and company. Can you imagine what he is capable of doing to Jews and Eretz Yisroel if he becomes Obama the president, G-D forbid?!?! It is sad to look on, as the generous and prominent Chabad Lubavitch, Rubashkin family, fights for its life, against an unfair and unjust double standard government, and the one (that… Read more »

    Yitchak Shochat may persuade some fools to get Obama in the White House. It will be a temporary victory.

    APPLES / ORANGES AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN

    FACT: Yitzhak Shochet was commenting on his point of view of Obama. To string that with the Rabashkins is just plain stupid. FACT: he is not voting in the US and was giving a point of view to an English paper for an English audience. He was not making his comments to a US audience or a US paper. That COL chose to publish it because they have him on some alert is not his problem. FACT: I live in the UK. I can tell you that in this same week, there was someone who wrote a whole attack against… Read more »

    I just went to the site. http://www.totallyjewish.com I clicked on the newspaper ‘the Jewish News’ where this was taken from. (a) It is not a headline. Schochet is quoted in the middle of a whole bunch of rabbis interviewed just podering their views for the UK readers, NOT pushing a candidate for election. (b) There is NO headline there about a Chabad Rabbi saying I am for Obama. That was created by COL giving a misleading headline. (c) I think you should go to the site and see for yourself. I am a Republican and I don’t think any Shluchim… Read more »

    You can justify Schochat until you are blue in the face. The FACT REMAINS…. Yitzchok Shochat messed up big time, and should have the guts to go before the world and admit he was wrong for opnening his mouth on this issue. This has everything to do with the Rubashkins, Jews and people all over the world. The world knows by now….”when America catches a cold, the entire world gets sick”. Ronald Reagan, who was a president that stood for everything Barak Obama does not, once said “YOU CAN RUN BUT YOU CAN’T HIDE”. Not you # 24, nore your… Read more »

    I cannot give you the last word, for I beleive that you and those who are foolish and blind enough to share your views, are a danger to us all. If Barack Obama is elected, you will one day be forced to eat your words.

    Your insults do not change the facts.

    two things....

    1) Rabbi Y. Schochet is, no doubt, talented and has a way with words. He should continue to use that talent for what he does best (defending the Tanya and other Torah issues) but, stay away from medling in political issues.

    2) It is shocking, that there is even one Torah observant Jew today, who is so uninformed and will vote for Barak Obama. What foolish people they are.

    MUST READ BEFORE YOU VOTE!!!

    To Senator Obama: The New York Times carried a story on Saturday, October 4, 2008, that proved you had a significantly closer relationship with Bill Ayers than what you previously admitted. While the issue of your relationship is of concern, the greater concern is that you lied to America about it. The Chicago Sun reported on May 8, 2008, that FBI records showed that you had a significantly closer relationship with Tony Rezko than what you previously admitted. In the interview, you said that you only saw Mr. Rezko a couple of times a year. The FBI files showed that… Read more »
