DAILY MAIL – SARAH VINE: It’s Amber Heard HERSELF who has proved a setback for women

“Real domestic abuse victims struggle, sometimes for years, to have their voices heard. They suffer at the hands of their aggressors, often trapped in toxic situations through lack of money, opportunities or the constraints of their culture.”

“For Heard to jump on the #MeToo bandwagon under false pretences feels like the ultimate betrayal, as did the fact that she lied about donating the proceeds of her divorce settlement to charity.”

“She gives all women a bad name, and in many ways undoes years of work building up credibility for victims of domestic violence. She claimed in her statement that the verdict was a ‘setback’ for women, but that’s not true: she is the one who has set back the cause for women. That, I’m afraid, is the hard truth she must now accept.”

This article is spot on. Thank you Sarah Vine for speaking the truth

Amber is now facing what Johnny had to live with
for 6 years. In his case, it was unjustified. Amber lied and defamed him for publicity to bolster her career but, her plan backfired.

A perfect way of describing what most Domestic Abuse survivors feel about this case…

It’s not issue of gender.
It was victory of good over evil.
If you lie you have to pay for your lies.

Power comes from the act of abuse not from gender, race, age, position, wealth or fame.

Amber abused Johnny. Amber had power over Johnny.

Isn’t it time we buried the David & Goliath trope once and for all??

Finally! A journalist making sense! Sarah Vine watched the trial and reported truthfully! No gas lighting, no white knuckling criteria of what you need to be to be a victim, no blind eye to the fact that women can be awful, too. Imagine that. THANK YOU, SARAH.

Must Watch!! Powerful Message from President Zelensky to the Ukrainian People and the world 🇺🇦💙🇺🇦💙🇺🇦💙🇺🇦💙🇺🇦

Must watch!

President Zelenskyy brings the world and more importantly, Ukrainians, a powerful message. This is in English.

Ukraine was beautiful…
Ukraine will win…
Ukraine will rebuilt.

I’ve cried about this war, but this, from the Ukrainian government, has me so emotional. This is by far the most dedicated. The most inspirational. The most in sync President I’ve seen in my lifetime – and I’m old!! 😂

When will enough be enough? When will the world see what’s happening and do something about it?

We cannot continue to hear about dead bodies lying on the ground… or people too old or disabled unable to escape… or people trying to escape and being gunned down….. it’s freaking heartbreaking to imagine for a moment the deep fear they are all living with.

And yet the Ukrainians keep fighting, keep marching, keep asking for help, keep their heads held high in dignity even as they are looking down the barrel of a gun held by the Russian soldiers – many of whom don’t even understand what this is all about but have to obey orders.

🇺🇦 Please share 🇺🇦

🇺🇦💪🏽 Ukrainian Footballer Emotional as he Gets a Standing Ovation by Fans Showing Support for Ukraine

Ukrainian footballer reduced to tears after being handed captain’s armband and given standing ovation

Benfica star Roman Yaremchuk was reduced to tears after coming on in his side’s match this evening as thousands of fans showed their support for Ukraine.

Since Russia began invading Ukraine just 11 days ago on the orders of Russian president Vladimir Putin, millions of people around the world have been showing support for Ukrainians during these incredibly tough times.

It’s been a difficult week for Ukrainian footballers playing through the shocking events with many having family and friends back home living in fear.

As we all watch in horror the senseless violence and murders of hundreds of innocent Ukrainians it’s hard not to get emotional watching this powerful moment of unity, support and solidarity.

“I Grew up in the Extremist Jewish Cult of Lev Tahor” – The Story of Mendy Levy

This is Mendy Levy, a survivor of the Lev Tahor cult. He is so incredibly brave and inspirational to come out and speak openly about his experiences in the cult. This is about the CULT and absolutely not about the rest of the Jewish communities around the world.

The 18-year-old who fled an extremist Jewish cult called Lev Tahor has recounted his horrific upbringing in the group, revealing that his father died after the leaders refused to let him see a doctor.

Levy, who was born in Canada in 2003, recalled being forced to swim in freezing cold, snake-filled water and eat hot pepper if he told a lie. When he was 15 years old, he was told he had to marry his 12 year old cousin, and that was the last straw for him.

It’s a very difficult video to watch and potentially very triggering on so many levels so watch with care.

Logan Dorn – Religious Christian Fanatic – harassing girls on the beach 😳

Subject – Logan Dorn harassing teenage girls on the beach for – shock horror 🙄 – wearing bikinis!

If this dude didn’t want the 9 and 6 year olds boys to see women – actually teenage girls – in bikinis, he shouldn’t have taken them to the beach. Problem solved.

Once again we have a man trying to tell young girls how to dress to suit HIM. Move away man!! It’s not that hard to do.

The condescending attitude towards the group of girls is awful. He’s so patronising and trying to preach to them to explain why they’re wearing bikinis on the beach!!! It’s a freaking beach!!!!

The last 15 seconds of this story is what made me laugh. He thought he could harass these girls and get away with it. Nope! Social media is savage and after the video went viral people went for him to get his name and place of work! And yup! You guessed it!! He’s got fired.

Well done to Mighty Hand Construction in Colorado who have done the right thing by firing a man harassing girls. I wish more companies did this.

I’m still baffled why adult men think that going up to a group of girls and asking them why they’re wearing bikinis is acceptable??? And then talking about their bodies! Dude. Wow.

Chief Rabbi steps in as rabbinical courts accused of siding with domestic abusers

Having just come across this article I’m enraged. We can see that sadly because the Beth Din is made up of male Rabbis, they seem to only see things through the eyes of the husbands.

A woman who goes to the police for help because her husband is physically, emotionally, sexually or financially abusive shouldn’t be penalised.

Proving coercive control is incredibly difficult and to put another burden on the victim that if she (it’s usually the women but not always) goes to the courts about it she can be left chained to her estranged husband, without a Gett, forever. This is outrageous.

Saying you’re helping agunot (jewish women unable to be free of their husbands as they refuse to divorce their wives) and actually doing it is a different thing. What about the human rights of the victims? We need to stop protecting men who are abusers and begin thinking of how to help the women trapped and chained to their their husbands.

At the root of all of this is the terrible sexism and misogyny that exists in the Beth Din. The Chief Rabbi has said he will intervene and try to resolve this issue. I hope he does. This is unacceptable and has to be sorted out. We can’t have women chained for decades to their husbands. And we can’t allow women to be scared to go for help knowing if she does she won’t get her Gett.

Ultra-Orthodox MK: Women who convert to Judaism through IDF are ‘shiksas’

An ultra-Orthodox lawmaker said women who convert to Judaism through the Israel Defense Forces’ conversion program are considered shiksas, using a pejorative term for non-Jewish women.

https://www.timesofisrael.com/ultra-orthodox-mk-women-who-convert-to-judaism-through-idf-are-shiksas/

Opposition leader Yair Lapid called the statement “ignorant and sad.”

“These wonderful young women that you call shiksas are saving your life,” he tweeted.

Outrageous Comments Made by a Knesset Member About Killing People in “Mixed Marriages”

An Israeli Knesset member has called for the killing of couples involved in mixed marriages during a speech in parliament.

Yitzhak Pindrus is a member of the United Torah Judaism, an ultra-Orthodox party that believes in a homogenous Jewish state and society.

He called for the murder of “people who contribute to miscegenation”, invoking a Biblical story about the murder of a Jewish man and non-Jewish woman while they were making love by lancing a spear through their engaged sexual organs.

Worshipers at synagogue threatened by men screaming anti-Semitic slurs

“No one was injured, and no weapons were displayed, according to the witnesses, but community members were terrified.

“There were kids all over, it was traumatizing,” an unnamed witness said.”

Do you hear the irony? No one was injured and there were no weapons. Kids terrified and traumatised. Remind you of anything at all?

Read the end of the article where it states how many Palestinians have been killed by the Israeli Army in the last couple of weeks or so. 60 babies and children were killed.

I asked a friend how he can still justify people who have done this. His answer was “they were in the wrong place at the wrong time”. It seems being in bed asleep in your own home counts as wrong place wrong time.

The Israeli Government confirmed the bomb had missed the target and hit that building killing dozens of innocent people. And you’re still defending this?

You know what real trauma is? A little girl pulled out of the rubble of a building bombed by the Israelis in which her mother and all her siblings were killed. The only other survivor was her father. She hasn’t said a word since being pulled out of the rubble of the bombed building. Her eyes are wide open and terrified. But not a sound comes out.

Of course it’s not acceptable to harass anyone or to yell antisemitic remarks. But please can we put things into perspective here. Having a car damaged and getting the police to take fingerprints of it to arrest the person who did it. I mean, seriously??

I still cannot get my head round the countless people who I know have a kind heart and so much compassion and yet when it comes to the subject of the Palestinians all this goes away. Someone make it make sense!

No I Am Not Antisemitic For Speaking Out Against The Israeli Government

Being critical of the Israeli Government does not make me antisemitic.

I’ll say it again for those at the back or those who continue to harass me and say the most ignorant and hurtful things.

Calling out the Israeli Government and the IDF for what they’re doing does not make me antisemitic.

To clarify,

  • No I am not a Nazi or someone who wants Jews to be eradicated.
  • I have never called for the world to be “judenrein”.
  • I have never championed for all Jews to be murdered.
  • I have never called for “ethnic cleansing”.
  • I have never stated that I want all Jews to be slaughtered and not to have access to “holy places” in Israel.
  • I can’t stand by silently when someone cannot differentiate between the two.

These are just a few things I’ve been accused of this past 48 hours. The list goes on.
