Nuking the Nuclear Traditional Family


Merav Michaeli, who sits in the Knesset as part of the Zionist Union from the Labor Party, has once again spoken casting tradition and order asunder. This time she has done so from Australia during a Q & A television program. During a lively debate she put forth the latest absurdity stating, “It (marriage) was created back at the time when we women were commodities, as were children, as were men without property and of other colors. This is not something that we should maintain in the world when we realize all of us are human beings. It is not about love … This was a tool that was made to dominate women for the sake of reproduction. This is not something we should sustain.” This is far from a new thought that may have just come out in the heat of the moment as Merav Michaeli stated in a 2012 TED talk on the issue, where she told the audience that marriage was responsible for the abuse of women. “We must cancel marriage. Not only religious marriage, marriage is not an issue of religion. Also civil marriage. I want all secular states to totally eliminate all registration and regulation of marriage. I want to cancel the very concept of marriage.” But she has another set of ideas should we be so ignorant as to continue to have such things as contrary to the modern world MK Michaeli envisions as marriage, then children must be raised by professionals licensed through the government such that they meet certain standards. Quoting a report of her commentary on the Q & A television show in Australia from Arutz Sheva, MK Michaeli purported the following with the video below where we are concerned with the earlier parts of the program.

“The core family as we know it is one of the least safe place for children – not just in Australia but in the entire western world.” Michaeli went on to cite different studies she contended proved that the core family was detrimental to children’s health and added that “marriage and parental rights hurts children.”
Michaeli also said that children should not be automatically raised by their parents, but by the government. “A child can have more than two parents; they don’t have to be their biological parents. The person who takes responsibility for the child should be obligated to fulfill certain kinds of criteria that the State should decide on,” Michaeli argued, saying that the government should decide what values children need to be taught.
“Enough with the neglect! It’s time the government invest in our children accordingly. I have already proposed several laws regarding equal parental leave of one year after a baby is born. I have already pushed for a longer school day. The proposal to protect children and their parents is on its way. This is our most important investment.”


The below video can be viewed on YouTube just click to hear on YouTube as requested. Since the video will begin half way through the show, so to hear the pertinent section of the video where the Minister of Knesset Merav Michaeli claims she has been misquoted and selectively edited, just restart the video from its start and those parts are in the start as we stated.


The people who wish to tear down society and take us back to tribal barbarism have found a new means for doing so; destroy the basic building block, the family. Hitler wanted to take the German people and the world back to the glorious barbarism of the Viking culture with some slight differences, his ideal Viking society was more idolatry and worship of a ruler god-king with him as that figure. He also believed that the government should have trained people raising the children who measured up to a sufficiently high standard. This became the Hitler youth who were taken from their parents and raised in militaristic fashion by nurturer-teachers who acted like some evil cross between a camp counselor and a drill instructor. These were to be the future leaders of his perfect Reich, the perfect society where people were superior and those who did not meet the standard were to be sacrificed for the greater good. One would hope that this is not the kind of world which Merav Michaeli desires. We pray that she does not desire a world where the government licenses people as fit to reproduce when they find love with another approved individual who was also of sufficiently prime DNA or worse. What could be worse? The government could decide exact numbers of each type of person to complete the tasks for a healthy society and produce them in factories and raise them with nurturer-educator-trainers. Aldous Huxley imagined such a world where the people did not marry because they never had children, it was against the law. This world the people simply had sex whenever and with whomever they felt like every day of the week and where permanent hookups were frowned upon as pairing up was considered unnatural, something those people on the Reservations did who kept the old ways of parochial thought, the savages. This was a “Brave New World” in which the government made just the correct number of people such that the motto to live by was, “Everyone works for everyone else. We can’t do this without anyone.” Everyone from lowest to highest wore their class colors which were; Epsilons dress in black, Deltas wear khaki, Gammas wear leaf green, Betas dress in mulberry, and Alphas wear grey.

However one defines a future where the family is no longer in vogue, the society is dysfunctional in some way and people still manage to return to the old ways. Perhaps that is the whole idea in these science fiction tales, that perhaps the way it has been done ever since the advance of agriculture, and possibly before, is perhaps the most responsible and healthiest way to base a society, using a family structure as the basic building block for the society. I realize that these philosophers have huge frontal lobes and intelligence quotas which are nearly, if not, off scale, understand what the inner working of their own psyches are and can extrapolate their broad-minded and deeply thought out Utopian societies such that they must impose them on the rest of us. Have they ever asked themselves if we really desire to live in their ideas of a utopian society or if we would rather reside in our own piece of the real world? Probably not, as they know that they know best and that the rest of us live the way we do because we are mired in the impositions and limitations impressed upon us from childhood by our Judeo-Christian societies. They will talk and talk and hopefully they will never be granted the opportunity to impose their utopian societies upon the rest of us.

The Beating of Yitzhak Tessler on the Mount

There is a disgrace that persists within the Old City of Jerusalem. On the holiest place for the Jewish People in the entire world currently excludes Jewish prayer. Truthfully, it goes far further than simply excluding Jewish prayer but even forbids even the appearance of a Jew praying. If a Jew moves his lips without making a sound he is suspected of praying and is arrested, expelled and possibly even arrested or perhaps forbidden from reentering the place of his accused sin for anywhere from weeks to years or even, in the worst and most extreme cases, for the rest of their lives. On Sunday former Minister of the Knesset Michael Ben-Ari was refused entry to this holiest of all places in the world for the Jewish People though his sons who had accompanied their father were allowed. But they were refused the outing they had planned of celebrating and sharing a family “visit the places allowed by Halacha (Jewish law)” as father and sons and not some demonstration or act of defiance planned by one of the Jewish groups which protest the restrictions placed solely on Jewish visitors to the Temple Mount. But as bad as the prevention of a former Minister of the Knesset, Michael Ben-Ari, from ascending to the Temple Mount, the location of both Holy Temples, was what happened on Tuesday to one individual out of the Jews who came to ascend to the Temple Mount. A Waqf, the Jordanian Muslim authorities who were permitted to retain their responsibility for caring for the Temple Mount after Israel took control of all of Jerusalem during the Six Day War, official decided to beat a Jewish individual named Yitzhak Tessler. The entire disgrace was witnessed by Yehuda Glick, a Temple Mount activist, and an Israeli Temple Mount police officer. When Yitzhak Tessler complained and requested the Israeli police officer please intervene and end the assault on his person, the Israeli police reacted by arresting Yitzhak Tessler, the victim of the assault.


Yehuda Glick stated. “The police are afraid, and do not allow the entry of more than twenty to thirty Jews at once. Hundreds of Jews wait an hour, two hours, and even three hours in the hot sun at the entrance, raising tensions at the Temple Mount.” He was referring to one of the most heinous insults to the Jewish People and the faithful Israeli Jews who only wish to make regular pilgrimage to the holiest site in all of Judaism which is located in the center of Jerusalem, the Israeli Capital City, within the borders of Israel, the Jewish nation, and are often refused entry to the site which they treasure and which provides them with such satisfaction just to be there on the holy land simply because the Muslims chose to riot and in order to quell Muslim anger the Temple Mount is closed to all Jews sometimes for weeks. These disturbances are planned by the Muslims with the intent of denying Jews ascending to the Temple Mount and visiting this holy site. The police choose to make victims of the Jews who only wish to visit their most holy and historic of places on Earth as a reaction to Muslim violence. By taking this easier path and refusing to address the rioting Muslims as the police are following a policy of taking the path of least resistance, least possibility of violent confrontation. They literally ignore rioting and instead prevent law abiding peaceful individuals from exercising their religious rights within their own country within its Capital City at the holiest place of all holy sites despite the laws of the land guaranteeing religious freedom. Israeli police have made it policy to deny Jews their right to pray or, at times, to even ascend to the holiest place within Israel. I have one wish for the officials responsible for this travesty, may the L0rd have mercy on their souls when they are held for judgment for their earthly actions.
