60,000 ultra-Orthodox Jews fill Citi Field and Arthur Ashe Stadium to denounce evils of the Internet

 

A mass rally for men only drew more than 40,000 ultra-Orthodox Jews to Citi Field Sunday to denounce the Internet and its pervasive impact on family life.

An overflow crowd of another 20,000 bearded men sporting long black coats and big black hats filled nearby Arthur Ashe Stadium for the unprecedented attack on modern technology.

Unable to enter the Queens stadiums because of the strict separation of the sexes enforced by the organizers, more than 15,000 Hasidic women watched the speeches at six sites across the tristate area — thanks to live-streaming on the Internet.

The rally was organized by a little-known rabbinical group called Ichud Hakehillos L’tohar Hamachane — the Union of Communities for the Purity of the Camp — to spread the word that online activities can lead to porn, child abuse and other acts of immorality.

But Eytan Kobre, who runs a Jewish family weekly magazine in Brooklyn and serves as the group’s spokesman, insists it is not calling for a ban on Internet use, but wants to use filters to manage it.

“With one click, all of a sudden, you lose control and are whisked away to a world you never intended to see, and it overtakes your life,” he said. “As a community, we are asking, is it worth it?”

Kobre cited social media like Facebook and Twitter that he argues can lead people away from prayer, community and family and cause social ruination.

“I know that Facebook ruins marriages,” he said.

The No. 1 message of the rally is to protect children from a world where unbridled freedom can be destructive, said Dr. Reuven Weinstein, 58, a dentist from Flatbush.

"We want a clean Internet,” he said.

End Usury!  As it is the greatest control over humanity by the zionists!!  Make all zionist debt Null and void, as it was created by fraud, murder and deception!

why don't we have a massive rally to protect our world against the evils of the zionist psychos?

Only Jews would oppose Freedoms as that is what the zionist agenda wants!  To remove the rights of all human beings and kill off all Goyim!  It is a well known fact that it was the zionists that control the sex industry, so this bollock doesn't hold water!!!  The zionist Rothschilds control all money too, as well as the global criminal network!!!    So fuck these Nazi/zionist racist, Genocidal, psychopathic, sexest, bigots that think they are superior to everybody else!!  The last time they did this they posed as Germans within the Nazi war machine!  They are now ready to try it again!  The world must stop these evil turds!

heres the assholes that run this place stating "online activities can lead to porn, child abuse and other acts of immorality." In reality, they want it to stop because we have learned that the Zionist pricks of Israel have more control over this Country than even Barry's fake ass, they did 9/11, they control the media, they control the music biz, they control Hollywood, they control the Country's finance's, but not from Wall Street....No No, they run it all from a couple lil buildings on "Waters Street", go looky on your own ;)

Don't be fooled by their agenda of "Morals", its just a cover for the real reason

 If you want to self censor/ fliter your own internet, that's fine, but don't have the arrogance and audacity to force your beliefs and controls on others.

Maybe they want us to agree with them like our government does.

our government bows down to these dumb asses. man, I can't believe that kind of thinking convinces our government to do their bidding.
