Israpundit and its leader editor Ted Belman continue to drive the Jewish people into deeper and deeper crisis, at any rate as far as any leadership from Israpundit is concerned. In a posting concerning the plans to get together in Israel some kind of Unity Party, which will fight the next elections, Belman posted concerning this and other things. (Shas has announced it will support dissolution, by Ted Belman, Israpundit http://www.israpundit.com/2008/?p=1312#comments)
If you read the comments you will see a raving post from somebody called SunstartMF33 (no idea what those numbers mean…seems like magic) which is the most reactionary drivel possible. To this guy the only person who can fight for Israel is an out and out religious type.
Forget that! Look it up if you want!
Then! Yamit82 weighed in, a guy of whom I do not have his real name, but who parrots on Israpundit the saying of one Samson Blinded (which is an actual blog). It is the last part of Yamit82 post that I reproduce here:
[begin quote here]
These commandments may seem fairly simple and straightforward, and most of them are recognized by most of the world as sound moral principles. But according to the Torah only those Gentiles who observe these laws because God commanded them in His Torah will enjoy life in the World to Come: If they observe them just because they seem reasonable or because they think that God commanded them in some way other than in the Torah, they might as well not obey them so far as a part in the World to Come is concerned.
The Noahic commandments are binding on all people, because all people are descended from Noah and his family. The 613 mitzvot of the Torah, on the other hand, are only binding on the descendants of those who accepted the commandments at Sinai and upon those who take on the yoke of the commandments voluntarily (by conversion). Some say that the Noahic commandments are applied more leniently to non-Jews than the corresponding commandments are to Jews, because non-Jews do not have the benefit of Oral Torah to guide them in interpreting the laws. Some European rabbis (presumably because of fear of reprisal from their Christian neighbors, famous for their violence to Jews) have gone so far as to say that worshipping God in the form of a man constitutes idolatry for a Jew punishable by death, but the Trinitarian Christian worship of Jesus does not constitute idolatry. In truth, any idolatry for which a Jew is punishable by death is also punishable by death for non-Jews, including the worship of a man as a god.

This stuff from Yamit82 is sheer madness. He is allowed to post on Israpundit without a whimper of opposition from Belman.
But I know for a fact that Belman is an atheist Jew. Why is this kind of drivel then given the go ahead on the Israpundit blog.
The Israpundit blog was actually also founded by at least one atheist, Joseph Alexander Norland. I do not know about the other 3 co-founders. So where does this now leave Norland according to Yamit82!!!
Should one just treat yamit82 as a blethering madman! Well no! The point is that Belman is full of compromises and it is this method that makes him now work consciously on the election of McCain, and thereby work consciously through his blog Israpuindit to hide what he knows very well, that McCain has been a pusher of Islam in the Balkans.
One compromise with the truth, another compromise with the truth, another…and so it goes on. You then have a system of betrayal.
