Controversial Rabbi: 'Unkosher Knives' Behind 'Stabbing Plague'

 

He blames the wave of attacks in Israel, many involving knives, on shochtim using not sharp enough knives.

הרב טאו: פיגועי הדקירה בגלל העלייה להר הבית Translation: R Tau: the stabbing attacks are because of people ascending the Temple Mount

 

Now it doesn't see to me that he's making a political argument that the attacks are a response to the Temple Mount situation (something one could agree or disagree with, but that wouldn't put it here.   This thread is only for supernatural cause-and-effect, not the regular kind.).

 

But he starts with the Gay Pride Parade in Jerusalem, which he claims insults "normal families" and this leads to a breakdown of the boundary between the sanctity of the TM and of other places.   And this diminishes our honor and makes teenagers no longer to fear soldiers.

Rav Yitzchak Zilberstein Says Women Should Not Drive As It ‘Compromises Tzniyus’

 

As we prepare to mark the shloshim for the victims of the Egged 402 bus accident that claimed six lives, HaGaon HaRav Yitzchak Zilberstein, Rav of the Ramat Elchanan neighborhood of Bnei Brak speaks to the tzibur. The accident hit the chareidi tzibur particularly hard.
 
During a talk in beis medrash, Rav Zilberstein explained he has been approached by many people seeking an explanation that resulted in such tragedy for so many families.
 
Rabbi Zilberstein quotes the kuntres Rachmei HaRav from HaGaon HaRav Shmuel Halevy Wosner ZT”L, in which Rav Wosner writes women should not get a drivers license. He explains that while this is somewhat commonplace today, it is not advised for the actual process of obtaining the license results in compromising her modesty as does actual driving of a vehicle by a woman for this exposes her to sites in the streets and marketplace.
 
“וליבי אומר לי שהוא אחד הגורמים של האסונות הגדולים שנעשים בדרכים בארץ ישראל המפילים כל כך חללים והרגו כבר טובים וצדיקים וזה מצורף לכל העבירות הנעשים בדרכים שמולידים המחבלים שמסכנים הדרכים”.
 
The kuntres adds “My heart tells me this is one of the causes of major catastrophes on the roadways of Eretz Yisrael that claim so many lives including many fine people, tzaddikim, and this coupled with the many [traffic] aveiros that made the roadways so dangerous”.
 
Rabbi Zilberstein adds as Posek Hador, Rav Wosner is giving piskei halacha from Shomayim and this is one of the causes that so many good people are killed.
 
He adds Rav Wosner in some exceptional cases permitted women to drive, for example a sick child in one’s home and a child with special needs that requires transportation to and from an institution but these exceptions were rare.

So the women on the bus, who may or may not have licenses, are being punished for the sins of the ones driving. Ad dlo yada!

Forget about Hashkafah, not letting women drive is flat out Pikuach Nefesh. Sakanta Chamira M'Issurah.....

Because of course people who are not permitted to drive on a regular basis and therefore do not acquire the skills that experienced drivers have are the perfect people to drive sick children to the hospital.

I saw a news story the other day about a TV falling on a kid and killing them. I was waiting for the Rabbis to chime in, but didn't hear anything :(
