Very few people realize that Hendrik Verwoerd was influenced by National Socialism in Germany when he was a student there in 1933. Returning to South Africa, he worked for the Afrikaans newspaper, Die Transvaaler, and spread his teachings and ideas through editorials and articles, one of the reasons why the Prime Minister of South Africa, Jannie Smuts refused to enforce conscription during WWII. Jews escaping the horror of Germany were also limited to entry into the country, a policy influenced by his articles.

Lawrence, why don't you read my book, and learn the true meaning of apartheid as practiced by Hendrik Verwoerd, who founded the word. People today are using the word to describe anything they don't seem to understand. What has the Rabbinate to do with South Africa? They never invaded politics, not like the Muellahs of Muslim faith. The Jewish religion has NEVER been political which is why Jews allowed themselves to be persecuted through the centuries. It is only with the Warsaw Ghetto, and the foundation of Israel that Jews started to fight. Had they listened to the Rabbi's they would not have fought. Even today the Rabbis and the Talmudists do not serve in the Israeli army. "we will pray to God. He will protect us." they chant. Like bloody hell HE did. He charged the Jews 6 million lives to found Israel. Is HE to be trusted?

and Lawrence... You talk about the apartheid actions of Israel. Hell man, Israel is the only FREE country in the Middle East. Wher else do you get a country that allows freedom of religion, sex including homosexuals. Israel has consistently said to the Palestinians, who practice apartheid amongst themselves... "declare peace", and they won't. Get your facts straight Lawrence. Read my book to do that.

I have heard recently that the exemption to military service of rabinicals is under review.

Patrick, don't know whe you get your information from, but it is finitely cockeyed. The Ultra orthodox Rabbis in Israel are so busy praying to a blank wall, that they have no time for anything else, other than creating children. Many of them, probably 80% of them believe that the State of Israel cannot exist until God sends down a Messiah, to liberate the Holy Land. I would say they are more in favour of the Palestinians than against. So... You want to criticize someone? Look at the crazies in the Muslim religion, the Palestinians... Who preach, "go out and kill and we will declare you a martyr, which means you go to Paradise and get 72 virgins." who the hell told them that lie? " Allah? If Allah cared for them, would he have allowed the armies of the Arab world to be defeated by a mere 600,000 Israelis. By the way, many Arabs are Israeli citizens. Perhaps that is why Allah is not helping them in their fight. Arab countries do not allow freedom of religion, so all the 'Gods' up wherever, are against him. Get your thinking in order man.

You are new, so it means you come in on a post like that by me without any broader ongoing context of me, trust me, ask or look around more widely, you dont need to point out the evil squalor of Islam and sickness of Middle-eastern culture to me...

What I was referring to with that comment, was the newsreel scenes of Rabbis directing the IDF conscriptees out, scrambling to their stations, as news of the October 1973 Arab attack and emergency developing ...

I didnt see them saying "no , guys, lets all stay here and pray for them to go away, cant we all just get along? "

Patrick, my original argument with you was about your use of the word APARTHEID, referring to Israel. I suggested that Israel in today's world is the only country where freedom of man and woman exists, even more so than the US, where it takes money to become a politician.
