“The messiah will see what this committee is doing and he won’t come!”
These are the words of MK Moshe Gafni (United Torah Judaism). He react to Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee approves bills that would see women influencing selection of rabbinical judges; couples able to register for marriage in any city.
The Haredi MKs, who view bills as a threat to Jewish tradition, lash out.
The Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee inched closer Monday to a bill that would allow Israeli couples to register for marriage anywhere in the country, not just in the city of their residence. In a revision vote, the committee also approved a proposed amendment that would mandate the inclusion of a woman in the committee that selects rabbinical judges.
Some ultra-Orthodox legislators view these proposals as running contrary to Jewish tradition, and some view them as a threat to the current ultra-Orthodox stranglehold on all rabbinical services and institutions.
In response to Sunday’s votes, MK Moshe Gafni (United Torah Judaism) harshly criticized committee chairman, MK David Rotem (Yisrael Beytenu), saying “the messiah will see what this committee is doing and he won’t come!”
“This committee has become the garbage can of Judaism. All the anti-Jewish laws find you,” Gafni said to Rotem, who is himself an observant Orthodox Jew. “You have always been anti-religious! You are a big hero, you talk the talk, and that is why you cannot be a representative on the Judicial Selection Committee — that committee needs strong people.

On of the most traumatic accusations against liberal Israelis, are coming from their own Orthodox brethren. The liberals are told, they are the reason why the Messiah is not coming.
If they only would become Ultra Orthodox, the King of the Jews would surface, and rule in Israel, we are told.
For all Messianic Jews, who believe Yeshua is the Messiah, this kind of claims are not Biblical.
If man could block God from doing anything, man him self would become “god”. The idea that man can tell God what to do, is idolatry.
The Messiah will return to Earth in the fulness of time, just as he appeared the first time, according to the Biblical prophecies.
so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.
The Messiah will come at a time when godless men do not expect Him. He will come to rescue those who are waiting for Him. Amen.
