Uncensored Israel News, Jewish news, National Israeli news

After years of dispute, American Jewish organizations have finally forced Mormons to stop the practice of posthumous baptizing of Holocaust victims.

The argument went over Mormons’ absurd practice of baptizing by proxy, whereas individual Mormons baptize themselves in the name of people randomly selected from genealogical databases.

By making a fuss over this stupidity, Jewish leaders demonstrated that they are really uncertain about this practice, that perhaps it works. Would they attack voodoo practitioners next?

Maariv ran a curious piece on the former Bin Laden family house in East Jerusalem. Its current owner, an Arab attorney, will only agree to sell it to Osama.

And it is with such views that the fellow practices in Israeli courts.

Answering to the Supreme Court, the Education Ministry reduced the budgetary allocations for haredi schools, which refuse to teach the children “basic disciplines.”

Superficially, the ministry appears to be acting reasonably: how can a normal person not be versed in basic disciplines? But the disciplines in question are not such things as geography or math, but ideologically charged courses of history and Darwin-only biology.
