Shkoyach, Eli Yishai! Finally, someone with the principles to stop those immoral chilonim from paying their bills online on Shabbat and chagim (http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3954262,00.html). Whatever next with those godless bounders?!
Following the inspired decision to end Daylight Saving Time a week and a half into September – over a month and a half before Europe and two before the US – so that charedim can have a psychologically easier fast on Yom Kippur (who cares that it now gets dark at half past five?!), I look forward to further ingenious measures from Mr. Yishai to curtail the liberty of secular Israelis, especially in their own homes . . .
When will he table, for instance, a new law prohibiting the IBA, HOT and Yes from broadcasting on Shabbat and chagim? Or, better still, one forcing Israel Electric to cut off power supply for 24 hours to people who are proved (by a Beit Din, of course) not to be shomer Shabbat? That’ll stop the heathens desecrating Hashem’s Day of Rest by pouring boiling water onto their tea bags!
I also commend Mr. Yishai’s efforts to deport those four hundred children (http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3935904,00.html). After all, who cares that they were born in Israel, are Hebrew speakers, and consider this their home? And what "lessons from the Holocaust"? Many of their parents are even from Africa and a different colour (no offence, Mr. Yishai).
Seeing as Mr. Yishai is seemingly so intent on turning Israel into a religious state – I can hardly wait! – aren’t the logical next steps to refuse citizenship to Jews who don’t keep mitzvot, and to strip it from sinners already holding it?
And why shouldn’t Mr. Yishai tell chilonim what to do in the privacy of their own homes? After all, apart from building it . . . oh yeah, and actually working and paying taxes to feed it . . . and, admittedly, sacrificing their sons to defend it . . . apart from all those things, what have the chilonim ever done for this country?
Kol hakavod, Mr. Yishai! You are surely your teacher’s pupil (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-11127409). And it is people like you who have made Israel what it is . . . or, at least, what it is becoming.
