How to respond to anti-Chabad remarks?

How am i supposed to reply when ppl make anti-chabad remarks? I agree with them that some what the extremist mashachists do is very wrong, but i still feel hurt when ppl make rude remarks about the rebbe and so forth

Against A tzaddik is inadmisible and against a Jew is an aveira
they can disagree about an opinion, about something that someone does, or thinks ,
some ppl do not make a chiluk in this point, but this is something that u can bring,

You can tell them that just like they would not tolerate it if you spoke badly about someone they love and respect, they should also be sensitive and not talk badly about the Rebbe in your presence.

By the way, your signature about relying on miracles is very timely. Certainly when we remember the miracles which the Rebbe did (many of which the whole world witnessed), it constantly give us strength.

I used to bother, but no longer don't- the person making the remark is not interested in dialogue- he wants to shock- ignore them [***].

In a video of the Rebbe with r.Kahane regarding the sleep in sukko the Rebbe says there is no need to answer anything to those who attack Chabad.
As I heard from one guy, the only thing worthy to say to such dudes is "rishoin ba sheini bekodesh hakodashim" - first word in the second posuk of Shir ha Shirim: "kiss me..." (and the continuation is obvious).

Respond: 'I wonder what would happen if I insulted Rav Feinstein (who, incidentally, supported the Rebbe). But I won't insult gaonim or tzaddikim; I leave that up to kofrim like the one standing in front of me.'

I say the phrase that is in the haftara (chaya Soroh, I think) adressed to King David, but obviously not recently allowed on CT.

Anti chabad in israel

Well, here in israel it's pretty all over. I walk around and get comments daily for my Kippah yechi, although i dont scream it so everybody should hear. i am in kind of the same problem when ignorant small boys with curly peyos call me a chabadske and laugh at my kippah yechi. i think ignoring or something of the sort can send the right message.

I don't begin to get the issue here (without getting into the yechi kipa issue, which is a "side" point). Every community makes fun and "baredts" the other. Litvkas against chassidim, galicianers against Litvaks, Chabad against 'snags or "hunkies", and the list goes on and on.
If you live among them, learn how to handle it or stay away.

It's allowed. I just didn't want it mentioned in this thread, because invariably any mention of it, in any context, seems to throw the thread off course.

So bear with me- Yechi adoni hamelech David leolam. Incidentally, in the time that I've been in Israel, I've been told that I am officially 'chinyaked', whatever that means. Maybe it has to do with the yellow flag that became my obsession. But in the end- if you believe in it, you have what to answer. And if you don't really believe, who are you faking for?

Hm, I'm not sure hijacked is the right word. Okay, chassidnistar. Stop being so nistar and reveal yourself. How under the sun do we know each other????

And I still don't understand what chinyaked means...it means ches nun (or someone with those letters in their name) was hijacked into becoming a yellowflagger? What????

Perhaps so. OTOH, I think maybe you suffered the same.
