Thank you

Thank you Rabbi for clarifying and for admitting that you had not really known much about Obama when you said those comments.
Let me tell you another secret: what you wrote about mcain dying in office & sarah palin being an airhead is also the fault of the left wing british media.
BH today we have the internet, where you can access news & info from around the world, so you will not believe everything you read in the british press

as the saying goes: the tongue is an important part of your body,

Rabbi Schochet I take my hat off to you. It takes a great man to admit when he may be wrong. Sign of solid leadership. After all said and done, we could use more of your kind of Rabbi in America and in Crown Heights especially.

Personally, I think all this propaganda talk about Obama’s alleged plan to “redistribute the wealth” and bring socialism to America is pretty silly. Seriously, its not as if we don’t believe that socialism should exist to some degree. After all, isn’t that why the more money you make, the higher your tax bracket is? That’s not about to change any time soon. And yet, that’s a clear example of taking from the rich and giving to the poor. Hardworking Jose (legal immigrant) comes to the States and is working long, hard hours, making minimum wage, trying to put some tacos… Read more »

We go to election tomorrow. We all have a say. We will push for McCain. Obama will get in. Then what? Oilom goilom? Is he supposed to be bad for us Jews or for all of America? If it is America why are people voting him in? Or maybe we are just paranoid?

out of context!?! distorted?!?

Why is it, so often, when foolish people say stupid or hurtfull things, they will cover up and claim that “words were taken out of context or distorted”.

GIVE ME A BREAK! WHAT A COP-OUT!

Yitzchock, you had the chance to do the noble and brave thing but, you blew it.

You could have just apologised in one line but, instead, cowardly opted to blame COLive and others.

Yitzchok, just get out there, say “I was wrong”
UN PSHETLECH!

back to Arabs doesn’t mean that it ever belonged to them. But it was once in their hands and then Israel took it rightfully and now it went back to them again Hashem yirachem. don’t be splitting hairs.

Obama will win today. Accept it. So we in the US of A are stupid and don’t know that he is an Arab lover. We are stupid and don’t realise that he hates Jews and that he will bring down the economy. Remember, a country gets the leader it deserves.
