MK's standing strong! Maariv Google Translate. MK Bennett reconsiders participation in Parade due to BDS marchers! MK NIssim Zeev speaks out for Judea and Samaria

Bs"d


Naftali Bennett has courage like Rabbi Abadie to take a stand. Hashem Oz LeAmo Yiten. May Hashem give courage to His people! Short term is painful with backlash with those who don't want the status quo to change. But it is with long term benefits in mind that true leaders are born. .  

Bennett: Release Arab Israeli Terrorists and We're Out

"The Jewish Home will resign from the government if Israeli Arab terrorists are released," declares Minister Naftali Bennett. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/179513#.U0gq1vldVps

Naftali Bennett also makes a tremendous Kiddush Hashem on CNN 

"There Has Never Been a Palestinian State - That's a Lie"

 http://virtualjerusalem.com/news.php?Itemid=12600  While I am not sure what Bennett has in mind re: the full autonomy of areas B and C. I definitely like his proposal of annexing Judea and Samaria, Please watch the CNN interview live..  

Feiglin also spoke at against the release of terrorists in exchange of Jonathan Pollard.  Is he willing to leave the coalition in protest with Bennett? http://www.jewishpress.com/indepth/columns/moshe-feiglin/jonathan-pollard-an-israeli-hero/2014/04/10/

MK Feiglin has taken the lead in speaking out for Temple Mount.  This week Arutz7 reported 

Congressman 'Shocked' by anti-Jewish Measures on Temple Mount

Two US legislators go 'under cover' to visit Temple Mount - and experience 'shocking' discrimination firsthand. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/179412#.U0gvLvldVps

MK Nissim Zeev in a a surprise guest appearance in New York.  He stood with us  in front of the UJA office protesting against BDS groups marching in the Parade.  MK Nissim spoke  with passion of Yehuda and Shomron as being the heart of the Jewish people and Eretz Yisroel.  

[Some differentiate the BDS movement is being only directed to the "occupied West Bank" as they call it.

 If Judea and Samaria is the heart and soul of Israel then what is the end result of the rest of the body when the heart is damaged? my comments Robin]

Due approval of participation of radical left-wing groups support the annual parade held in New York,  the minister  Bennett ordered the suspension  of participation of a representative of the Ministry of Diaspora

Jerusalem and Diaspora Affairs Ministry announced these days the organization United Jewish Appeal (UJA) and the Council of Jewish Communities relations (JCRC) organizing the annual parade in support of Israel that he reconsider his participation in the event, due to approval for three extreme left organizations participate in the parade this year. 

Parade, entitled "Celebrate Israel" is held each year in early June along Fifth Avenue in New York. This year is the year indicates a full fifty years of its existence, and is the most significant show of force on behalf of the supporters of Israel.

This year's parade should be the biggest parade with more than -35,00 people and 200 organizations across the United States have promised their participation., But in recent weeks there was disagreement arose between the Jewish organizations against the approval given to the three groups that support boycott Israeli products. Comes in the "Partners for Progressive Israel" was formerly a branch of Meretz USA, "New Israel Fund" and the "image". 

This week was held in Manhattan outside the offices of Appeal, a protest of right-wing organizations calling the parade organizers to cancel the participation of those groups. Head protestors standing WATCH JCC organization and its chairman, Richard Allen explained that these organizations endorse the BDS movement pro - Palestinian calls for boycotts of Israel and sanctions, and encourages investors to remove their investments from Israel. Following calls announced several Orthodox organizations, including communities comprising hundreds of families, the cancellation of their participation in the parade. 

Jerusalem and Diaspora Affairs Ministry who attend the event, both through personal presence of the Minister of its head and through financial support initially announced that this year will reduce the participation of 150 thousand dollars to 50 thousand only. But in light of recent developments, Naftali Bennett, the Minister decided to reexamine the future participation in the parade and suspend him for now. 

Rabbi David Elgazi, founder of the "Society of Israel," one of the largest Sephardic Jewish organizations in New York and Columbia University professor says to Ma'ariv a parade organizers Wearily, financiers and donors livers.He said the three organizations approved their participation "make themselves like Israel., But through the parade they want to establish the false support for Israel, and hide behind criticism of Israel or their resistance to Judea and Samaria." 

The JCRC chairman Rabbi Michael Miller, through a spokesman, Michael Mittelman said that his organization has a deep commitment to represent the widest range of pro-Israel as a Jewish and democratic state. "We oppose the BDS movement and a danger to Israel's existence in any forum or manner, including confiscation of goods from Judea and Samaria, "said Rabbi Miller. 

"Those organizations that oppose BDS and signed the registration form to our demanding than any parade participants sign that he identifies with Israel as a Jewish and democratic state - even though we share effect on the access and support a boycott of goods from the West Bank, appropriate framework of participation in the parade. Many of the same groups are part an integral part of national Jewish organizations, they are under what we call the "big tent" of Jewish communal life and all parade participants must accept the rules of our game, which include, inter alia, carrying messages festive for Israel. " 

Spokeswoman for the New Israel Fund, Naomi Pace, stated that in five years the Foundation does not fund organizations that support at BDS, but because it opposes the occupation and settlement activities that followed, did not refrain from supporting organizations that encourage non-consumption or purchase of products manufactured in, or failure to use the services companies operating them.

מצעד תמיכה בישראל: תנועות BDS בפנים

-

עקב אישור השתתפותן של קבוצות שמאל קיצוני במצעד התמיכה השנתי המתקיים בניו יורק, הורה השר בנט על השהיית השתתפותו של נציג משרד התפוצות

מיכאל טוכפלד | 11/4/2014 0:22שלח לחברShare on facebookShare on twitter
המשרד לירושלים והתפוצות הודיע בימים אלה לארגון המגבית היהודית  המאוחדת (UJA) ומועצת היחסים של הקהילות היהודיות (JCRC) המארגנות את מצעד התמיכה השנתי בישראל כי הוא שוקל מחדש את השתתפותו באירוע, זאת עקב האישור שניתן לשלושה ארגוני שמאל קיצוני להשתתף במצעד השנה. 

המצעד, תחת הכותרת "חוגגים ישראל" מתקיים מדי שנה בתחילת חודש יוני לאורך השדרה החמישית בניו יורק. השנה הוא מציין השנה מלאת חמישים שנה לקיומו, ומהווה מפגן הכוח המשמעותי ביותר מטעם ציבור התומכים בישראל.

מצעד תמיכה בניו יורק. ''מחויבים להציג את מנעד תומכי ישראל''צילום: צח יוקד

המצעד השנה אמור המצעד להיות הגדול מכולם כשיותר מ-35,00 איש ו-200 ארגונים שונים מרחבי ארה"ב הבטיחו את השתתפותם. אלא שבשבועות האחרונים נתגלעה מחלוקת חריפה בין הארגונים היהודיים על רקע האישור שניתן לשלוש הקבוצות התומכות בהטלת חרם על תוצרת מישראל. מדובר בארגון "השותפים למען ישראל מתקדמת" שהיה בעבר סניף מרצ בארה"ב, "הקרן החדשה לישראל" וארגון "בצלם". 

השבוע התקיימה במנהטן, מול משרדי המגבית, הפגנת מחאה של ארגוני ימין הקוראים למארגני המצעד לבטל את השתתפותן של אותן קבוצות. בראש המפגינים עומד ארגון JCC WATCH והיו"ר שלו, ריצ'רד אלן הסביר כי ארגוני אלה מביעים תמיכה  בתנועת ה-BDS  הפרו-פלסטינית הקוראת להטיל על ישראל חרם וסנקציות, ומעודדת משקיעים להוציא את השקעותיהם מישראל. בעקבות הקריאות הודיעו כמה ארגונים אורתודוכסים, בהם קהילות המונות מאות משפחות, על ביטול השתתפותם במצעד. 

המשרד לירושלים והתפוצות שנהג להשתתף באירוע, הן באמצעות נוכחות אישית של השר העומד בראשו והן באמצעות תמיכה כספית הודיע תחילה כי השנה יצמצם את השתתפותו מ-150 אלף דולר ל-50 אלף בלבד. אך לאור ההתפתחויות האחרונות, החליט השר נפתלי בנט לבחון מחדש את השתתפותו העתידית במצעד ולהשעותה לפי שעה. 

הרב דוד אלגזי, מייסד ארגון "חבורת ישראל" אחד הארגונים היהודיים הספרדיים הגדולים בניו יורק ומרצה באוניברסיטת קולומביה אומר ל-nrg מעריב כי מארגני המצעד נכנעים ללחץ בעלי ההון והתורמים הכבדים. לדבריו, שלושת הארגונים שהשתתפותם אושרה "עושים את עצמם כאוהבים את ישראל. אך באמצעות המצעד הם מעוניינים לבסס את שקר תמיכתם בישראל, ומתחבאים מאחורי הביקורת על ישראל או ההתנגדות שלהם ליהודה ושומרון". 

יו"ר ה-JCRC הרב מייקל מילר באמצעות דוברו, מייקל מיטלמן אמר כי לארגונו יש מחויבות עמוקה לייצג את המנעד הרחב ביותר של תומכי ישראל כמדינה יהודית ודמוקרטית. "אנחנו מתנגדים לתנועת ה-BDS המהווה סכנה לקיומה של מדינת ישראל בכל פורום ובכל צורה, כולל החרמת מוצרים מיהודה ושומרון" אומר הרב מילר. 

"אותם גופים המתנגדים ל-BDS  ושחתמו על  טופס ההרשמה שלנו, הדורש מכל גוף שמשתתף במצעד לחתום כי הוא מזדהה עם ישראל כמדינה יהודית ודמוקרטית - אף שאנו חולקים בתוקף על גישתם ותמיכתם בהחרמת מוצרים מיהודה ושומרון, מתאימים למסגרת ההשתתפות במצעד. רבות מאותן קבוצות הן חלק בלתי נפרד מארגונים יהודיים לאומיים, הם נמצאים תחת מה שאנו מכנים "האוהל הגדול" של חיי הקהילה היהודיים וכל משתתפי המצעד חייבים לקבל על עצמם את כללי המשחק שלנו, הכוללים, בין היתר, גם נשיאת מסרים חגיגיים למען ישראל". 

דוברת הקרן החדשה לישראל, נעמי פייס, הצהירה כי מזה חמש שנים הקרן אינה מממנת ארגונים התומכים ב- BDS, אך מכיוון שהיא מתנגדת לכיבוש ולפעולת ההתנחלות שבאה בעקבותיו, לא תימנע מלתמוך בארגונים המעודדים אי צריכה או רכישה של מוצרים המיוצרים בהן, או אי שימוש בשירותי חברות הפועלות בהן. 

כתבה מורחבת בנושא תתפרסם ביום שישי במוסף "יומן" ב"מקור ראשון".

A ZISSEN PASSOVER TO ALL

Thank you Helen Friedman, AFSI, for including the Park Hotel, Netanya, Israel, on  the Chizuk Mission Oct. 2012 tour itinerary.  .

<image002.png>

Without the activities including rallies and writings, of our small crew of advocates for Israel, Israel and Jews everywhere, will never survive the daily tide of revisionist history finding its 'technologically logistic' place in the the history book of Google's pages.  Open source is a flood of Noahtic proportions.  I don't see a successful result for our people without aggressive military action against Iran.  We need to rechart the course of current trending history to survive.

 

RICHARD ALLEN JCCWATCH, AFSI, BETH GILINSKY JEWISH ACTION ALLIANCE with support of many stalwarts, SPEARHEADED A MAJOR SALVO THIS TUESDAY April 8th 2014, in  NEW YORK CITY.  Assembled appropriately at the entrance to UJA/FEDERATION headquarters 130 E 59th Street, was a significant, large number of 'champions for Israel'.  A major salvo was sounded in what needs to be an ongoing protest.  UJA/FEDERATION, one of the single largest funders of Jewish related causes in the USA and the world as a whole, was called out to defend its support of BDS – BOYCOTT- DIVESTMENT-SANCTIONS.  BDS are appropriately used as economic weapons against the evil nation of Iran.  UJA/FEDERATION must not be allowed to continue financial support of organizations who publically advocate BDS against Israel.  The support of BDS against Israel and Israeli businesses is not civil dialogue, it is war against Israel and Jews worldwide.

 

The only google reference found to the rally is:

I pray that our next rally will be reported on dozens and dozens of more publications.  Thank you Israel Matzav. 

Has nothing changed from the time AFSI in 2012, applied and was denied the right to march in the Israel Day parade while NIF was accepted? (Shilohmusings)

 

WE NEED TO RALLY AGAIN, IN FRONT OF UJA/FED, AS SOON AS WE CAN GET A SOUND PERMIT.  THE PRESS MUST/WILL BE CONVINCED BY OUR PERSISTANCE TO COVER THIS.  IF WE LEARNED ANYTHING FROM THE SHALLIT INITIATIVE IT IS GRAB THE ATTENTION OF THE PRESS.

Subject: Re: The Salute to Israel Day Parade

 

bs"d

 

Rabbi Billet, amv"sh

 

First let me address the positive points in your email.  You say we should work to stop the funding to NIF.  Excellent idea. Part of the problem is their deligitimazation and marginalization of those who speak of our entitlement to Judea and Samaria and then by extension the rights of anyone living in Judea and Samaria.  Why don't you come up with a clear statement in support of the hundreds of thousands of Jews who live in Judea and Samaria, who pay taxes, fight in the IDF in combat units and in fact are the most motivatedsoldiers in defending the Land of Israel.  compare them to the soldiers who come from Shomer Hatzair and Labor Kibbutzim etc.  Why are we silent when the IDF demolishes homes in Yitzhar and demonize the 15 year old kid who allegedly slashed tires in response to a demolition. Who gave the orders to demolish the Lazar's home?  Arutz 7 reported that the IDF tore down a new house belonging to Avi and Shoshana Lazar. The Lazar family was due to move into their new home this week with five children  Are the Lazar family extreme, violent, criminal and terrorists?  Do they not have property rights? Do they not pay any taxes to Israel. Are they not citizens of the State of Israel?  Let's say they are guilty of the terrible crime of not getting the proper permits for political reasons.  They along with their both Jews and Arabs are all building without legal permits. Are the permits withheld legally or simply politically withheld? So let things be contested in a courtroom before actually demolition takes place.  Please note that the demolition is done selectively to Jews davka, especially to beautiful young families who are anything but violent, criminal and terrorists. 

 

 Destroying the Lazar's new home is violent and criminal and has the same vibes as Krystallnacht. Even if Mr. Foxman of ADL says not to use imagery of the Holocaust lightly, we aren't.  What are their little kids thinking when they see their home destroyed by the IDF?  Surely they don't have very good feelings towards them.  How will they think of the IDF when they become teens?  What did the youth of Gush Katif who are now teenagers internalize when they saw the IDF demolish their beautiful homes?  In normal situations, kids who have dealt with such trauma might indeed come out violent, criminal etc. Those who supported and enabled useless and pointless destruction of their homes need to take responsibility of the "monster" they expect these kids to become. But rather than take responsibility for any misconduct on their part they will instead brand the kids as what they expect would be a normal reaction of a helpless victim to a violent crime .  They justify "legal" immoral actions of the IDF that can create such a monster. And they compound their sin by slander and branding these kids, and the community which brought them up, with  with names like fringe, "criminal", violent with extreme right wing terrorist leanings. 

 

 But these kids are brought up with Torah and with Faith and many can overcome their negative emotions and act with restraint.  However, they might try to prevent such actions from repeating itself.  Perhaps slashing of tires or whatever, is a manifestation of trying to the best of their limited ability to prevent future useless, pointless and criminal house demolitions on the part of the IDF. 

 

Why can't the Jews of Judea and Samaria share the same rights as the rest of the country?  They are under military civil law. Their rights do not fall under the same rule of law as the rest of Israeli citizents.  What about the other four homes demolished by the IDF?

 Let us look at American History and see how our founding fathers responded to intolerable acts!. Home demolitions weren't even mentioned.  Their main complaint was not being represented fairly after paying taxes surely a lesser crime than home demolitions.  

 

They formed their own militia!  

 

Am I saying that we need to have a civil war?  Surely that is not my intent since we all know that we are all brothers, 12 Tribes and the unity of Am Yisroel, all the 12 Tribes is the eternal yearning of our people.  

 

Yet we have instances in the Torah where brother did fight against brother and it was for the benefit of all.  After the Sin of the Golden Calf, the Tribe of Levi disregarded who was their brother and did G-d's commandment to punish the perpetrators of the Sin.  The Chashmanaim, the Maccabees,  fought with the Hellenizers.  Their purpose was not to fight against their brothers.  They were fighting to keep G-d's word. The fought for the right of doing Brit Mila, circumcision and keeping Holidays etc.  They knew that doing the right thing would benefit everyone including their brothers and if they remained passive it would bring ruin and G-d's wrath collectively upon the entire community. 

 

Nobody is calling for the boycott of the Parade. However, let everyone know that if BDS marchers are included, the entire Parade loses its focus and purpose.  It becomes simply a nice Parade down Fifth Ave.  Stop calling it "Celebrate Israel Parade". Change it's name because it's deceiving. You may argue American is a free country so if legally the organizers can't be selective as per who is marching in the Parade.  If BDS wants to march let them march. Are you implying that legally the organizers have no choice and can not exclude these marchers.  And if Lesbian and Gay groups wish to march, let them march. We can not stop them.  And if the Vatican who wants Mount Zion wants to march let them March.  

 

The natural consequence of this approach is that this Parade is no longer Jewish.  It's simply a Parade for all those who want to have a piece of the Holy Land.

 

Rabbi Billet.  Please don't waste the time and money of kids and families who are Zionists, love Israel, are in Yeshiva and Synagogues and are marching because they love the Land based on Torah.  Let them know the truth  because there is no Jewish  point in marching in this kind of Parade. 

 

 The underlying debate here is whether Israel should be Jewish State or a "democratic"  state like all other States. Shall this parade be a  Parade in support of a Jewish State or simply a parade like all other parades to support a State like all other States.

It seems like the organizers have decided and have chosen the latter.

 

Rabbi Billet, Holiness means being distinct.  If you take that away it becomes profane.

Rabbi Billet overlooks a very simple solution.  The participants in the parade currently sign an agreement.  The existing parade agreement needs to be enhanced to include a sentence that parade participants do not support BDS.  The lawyers can draft it.

 

Shamefully, the Rabbi slanders us by calling us "BOYCOTTERS"

 

Meanwhile, John Rusksy the head of the UJA-Federation and his paid lieutenants work overtime to include these BDS groups in the parade.

 

Mr. Ruskay worked with Noam Chomsky in the first group to call for a halt to all Military sales to The Middle East...leaving Israel Defenseless. (CONAME - Committee On New Alternatives In The Middle East)

 

Mr. Rusksy's work continues today....working to give NIF space in our "Tent".... Politics Cover provided by our "Rabbinic Leaders" who shamelessly slanders us.

The real battle against the NIF is to empty its coffers by getting donors to stop giving. Only 24% of their money spent in Israel is spent responsibly. The rest is used to fund a whole menu of anti Israel, anti IDF, and pro BDS activity.I know this well. I have spent the last 5 years in a below the radar screen, "in the shadows" war against the NIF

 

It is important to educate a naive public that NIF is not a cause deserving of support from the pro Israel community. PR is important.

 

But it should not come at the expense of the parade. The parade organizers are not NIF supporters. They are just parade organizers. The parade is an important event for our community, the pro Israel community. It is important for assimilated Jews, marginal Jews, non Orthodox Jews, non Jews, and US politicians to see the size of the pro Israel community and the enthusiastic support out there in the USA for Israel

 

The NIF people got into the parade. It is impossible for the parade organizers to get them out in the USA. For the same reason many different groups that meet the strong objections of some participants also march. You have to look at your group and not who else is in the parade. It is a wholesome parade and for the most part everyone is genuinely pro Israel.

 

The organizers are not political re the parade. They are good people, community servants trying to do something positive for Israel.The parade should not become another victim of the NIF even if their cronies march in it.

 

 

I have spent much time trying to get these people expelled from the parade in the past two years. Meetings with JCRC and Federation. We did a power point presentation on NIF. We brought live sane witnesses including Israeli oficers to the meetings.

 

 

It is very hard for me cannot clearly define the legal issues. I met with JCRC and Federation lawyers about this very issue two years ago. I remember that the legal issues were too complex for them to undo the presence of these organizations. They were unaware of the history of NIF when they allowed them in.

 

NIF has been exposed by an Israeli Colonel and several former intelligence officers who specialize in legal industrial "espionage". Until Operation Defensive Shield the NIF did its thing unchallenged. It is very hard for an umbrella organization to expel someone who is in. It will cause major legal entanglements.

dear rabbi billet

 

if, as you note - and it is so - the new israel fund is among those funding organizations "whose goal is to undermine the jewish state' [your words], how do you then find it within your jewish neshama to knowingly undermine the well-being of israel in endorsing those who would do harm to take part in israel's celebratory parade?

 

hillel of course has said it best, and for all times:  "if not now, when?"  when will you stand up for israel, when is is, G_d forbid, bleeding from the hamas/muslim brotherhood/ bds-ers mantra, the boycott, divestiture and sanctions against our people?  putting your finger in the dike of irreparable damage resulting from the targeted acts of our enemies is far, far too far, from hillel's injunction - NOW - i needn't tell you.

 

so, though you have claimed that the salute to israel parade is a feel-good event, nothing about detracting from and harming the state of israel 'feels' good or is good.  nothing.  pollyana would hope that a "great event with good spirit in which diverse people of differing persuasions come together to support israel" [your words] happens by opening the tent:  y'all come and denigrate us even if that is your way of celebrating us.  for the rabbi of the largest orthodox congregation in the five towns to endorse hateful acts, in and beyond a parade day, is only oxymoronic.

 

hillel's commentary on life's crucial decisions further notes that no matter how well meaning, it is our actions at important junctures which count.  STAND UP AND BE COUNTED, RABBI.  ezekiel would have you recall:  you will be judged according to your conduct and your actions, declared the Lord.   the advertised five [5] minyans each day at your synagogue are there for your people:  now is the time for you to be for the people of the state of israel.

 

there is no 'celebrating' with those who would do us, the collective we, harm.

 

respectfully

phyllis leventhal

 

p.s.  there's nothing 'fringe' about me.  i love and stand with the state of israel and her people.

 

 

 

Rabbi Heshie Billet of the Young Israel of Woodmere and a former president of the Rabbinical Council of America, said that while he sees the New Israel Fund as funding organizations "whose goal is to undermine the Jewish state," he objects to the "boycott of the parade by JCC Watch and its supporters."

"The Salute to Israel Parade is a feel-good, pro-Israel event, which is neither ideological nor political.  It is a great event with good spirit in which diverse people of differing persuasions come together to support Israel," Rabbi Billet said.  "It should be joined and endorsed by the Jewish community without controversy."

Rabbi Elie Abadie of the Safra Synagogue in Manhattan said he might pull his congregation out of the parade unless the three groups are banned.  "Many of these 'Jewish groups' are financed by anti-Semites, anti-Israel and Jew haters," he stated in an open letter to the leaders of the JCRC and UJA0Federation.  "Their sole mission is to delegitimize and demonize the State of Israel until its extinction."

IDF DEMOLISHING JEWISH HOMES IN YITZHAR IS ANTI-TORAH and ANTI-ZIONIST! Stop what you are doing and come today to a PRO-ISRAEL, ANTI-BDS RALLY TODAY 5:30 PM

BS"D (acronym for BSiata Dishmaya  - with the help of G-d, our answer to BDS)

Yasher Koach to Richard Allen of JCCWatch.org and Beth Gilinsky of National Conference of Jewish Affairs for this Protest Rally!  They are true heroes of the day! Their budget is Zero! Also kudos to Helen Freedman and  AFSI always in the front line fighting for what is right and good. Yasher Koach to all the groups sponsoring and promoting this protest rally! Stop what you are doing even cleaning for Pesach and come!
Starts with Boycotts Rally to Oppose Israel Boycotters Participation in Celebrate Israel Parade in NYC


UFA-Federation, JCRC and yes even the IDF and the State of Israel are at times confused about Zionism. Their vision becomes blurry. So if for example, the Israel Day Parade parade is filled with BDS and or gay groups,  homosexual groups sporting huge rainbow colored flags there to promote their degenerate agenda, it is deteriorating  to the point where it is no longer serving a positive function.

We must answer to a higher authority.  Today on Arutz7, see story below,  Israel National News, the following news is making headlines.  It is connected to our protest.  What I am referring to is the destruction of homes in Yitzhar. We can not ignore the news of the day since it is interrelated. The producers of the Israel Day Parade takes it's cue from the Gov't of Israel which includes the likes of anti Israel Arab parties, Meretz etc. which are the BDS parties of the Knesset. Their decisions are influenced by these bad elements. 

Please join me with expressing a feeling of total disgust with the IDF's demolition of homes in Yitzhar!

Even Rabbi's who are politically motivated can't see the forest for the trees. (story below)

In all due respect to Rabbi Ronsky and to all those who engage in character assassination and  call 16 year old youth  accused of slashing tires, "violent elements",  "terrorists" or "criminal"....  please withhold your slander.  First of all, often these "price tag" accusations prove false and when investigated are proven to have Arab not Jewish perpetrators and are planted in order to slander,  deligitimize and assassinate the character of the settlers. .  

But let us assume that for this time, tires were indeed slashed by Jewish youth in response to IDF home demolitions. BTW Slashing tires usually fall under the category of vandalism,  a far lesser crime than being a "terrorist". Why not at the very least "dan Lekaf zechus?"  (judge favorably on the side of merit)

Arutz 7 reported that the IDF tore down a new house last week belonging to Avi and Shoshana Lazar. The Lazar family was due to move into their new home this week with five children. It seems like a 16 year old kid slashed IDF tires.  He was labeled a terrorist which escalated matters. More tires were slashed and the IDF  then demolished 4 more homes in Yitzhar!  Very Macho of them!

How would former IDF Chief Rabbi Ronsky respond if the IDF came and demolished his home in the name of Zionism and the homes of all his neighbors.  How much of a "Zionist" would he be?

Talking of all coming under One big Tent....We all answer to a Higher authority. G-d's Umbrella/Tent and the IDF is included. 

Is being appointed as Rabbi of the IDF means the IDF Rule of Law overrides G-d's rule of law?  

Many feel that soldiers should refuse, according to the instruction of their Rabbi's to obey immoral IDF orders to demolish Jewish homes for political purposes.  If Rabbi Ronsky is a true Rabbi why didn't he address the illegal house demolition of the Lazar''s a week ago?    Rabbi Ronsky should have spoken up, as a Rabbi, with authority to stop Jewish destruction by the hands of Jews.   The IDF perpetrated a criminal, anti Torah, and anti Zionist provocation and executed immoral orders of political higher ups.  These orders had nothing whatsoever to do with ZIonism and/or protection of the Land and in fact emboldens and empowers our enemies to attack us!  

If the Rabbi was thinking clearly he would admit that tires are easily replaceable and in this case was not a terror or criminal act but in response to a criminal act

If I would defend this kid pleading guilty to the charges, I would  find fault with Rabbi Ronsky and other Rabbi's who fail to condemn or prevent the IDF from acting recklessly.  

The bottom line is that Rabbi Ronsky and the majority of Rabbi's including Chareidi Rabbi's who recently protested with hundreds of thousands "in the name of Torah" are now silent about what the Torah says about destroying Jewish homes in Eretz Yisroel.  They fail,  by their silence, to stop  IDF bulldozers from destroying Jewish homes! 

Are we going to experience another Gush Katif and Amona on a massive scale in Judea and Samaria? 

Remember that these kids were young children who experienced deep and lasting trauma when they witnessed their beautiful homes destroyed and their lives shattered with the Gush Katif expulsions!  We all know what happened in Sderot and southern Israel following the Gush Katif expulsions. Shame on you for  blaming such kids who destroy tires!  Look at yourself in the mirror and see that by your silence you are allowing the IDF, border police etc.  to destroy homes and communities once again! 

 Don't be a hypocrite and condemn their "criminal" actions which are pale in comparison to yours!  These kids deserve our apologies and assurances that the sins of the past are not repeated!

What you call Zionism is just the opposite!  The kids know the truth!

New York April 3, 2014 – The National Conference on Jewish Affairs (NCJA), an umbrella group of Jewish leaders from around the country and one of the co-sponsors of tomorrow's anti-BDS rally at UJA headquarters, is calling on the Jewish community to take action against the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel economic, cultural and academic boycott and its promoters and enablers. 

 

Beth Gilinsky stated today:  "At this time, perhaps more than any time since the beginning of the Holocaust, when anti-Semitic violence and anti-Israel hatred are skyrocketing across the globe, we call on Jewish leaders to show some backbone: stand with Israel against the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, Hamas-backed BDS movement, which dehumanizes Jews, demonizes Israel, and, sadly, some dishonorable Jewish groups support."

 

The rally will take place Tuesday, April 8th at 5:30 PM in front of the UJA Building in Manhattan.

Friends, See below links to organizations and media promoting/supporting this protest rally. Please support them and their advertisers! Their activism and journalism reflects a love of Israel. 

Dear Fellow Brothers and Sisters at UJA Federation and JCRC, amv"sh

We may be giving you guys a hard time with all this negative publicity and this protest rally,  but deep down we believe and want to believe that you love Israel and the Jewish People and you have tremendous Kochot, power, to do good for Israel and for the Jewish People.  It is for this reason you are leaders of the Jewish Community and have implemented many worthy projects.. It is not surprising that you want a large tent and to be all inclusive.  It is a reflection, we hope, of your very big and open heart  to spread kindness and goodness throughout the world, for Jews and non Jews alike.

What we are protesting, is how this can be best accomplished.  We are convinced that your open tent policy needs some boundaries and limits.  In order for the Parade to give justice, recognition and tribute to Israel that she so rightfully deserves,  it is necessary also to exclude. You will agree that this concept of setting limits and boundaries is key in raising healthy and productive children. Failure of  setting boundaries and limits often leads to the opposite... selfish and self centered children who take over and make the rules. .

Take those inner strengths you possess and delve deep within your conscience to turn things around so that Israel and the Jewish People lead the world in the ways of the Torah which is the guiding light for Israel and for the Nations of the world. 

It is with deep appreciation that I read that this years parade will feature groups from Judea and Samaria as part of our Parade.  (Anyone from Judea and Samaria, interested in participating please contact Richard Allen rallen@acbi.com )These communities are the creme de la creme.  They love the Land and are the pioneers and most authentic Zionists of today.  These beautiful communities of Judea and Samaria are adorned with agriculture and greenery, industry, academia, technology and most importantly filled with the sweet sounds of music of Torah learning, and their children are proud of their heritage. They are model societies for all to emulate.  Are these the people the BDS marchers want to hurt and demonize and heartlessly take away from them their homes and livelihoods for which these people have toiled, a labor of love and their personal expression of their love of the Land, love of the Torah and love of G-d?

We who see the truth clearly can not allow this travesty of justice to happen.  We call upon you to embrace these communities and with pride let the world know that we are one people and can not be divided!  Our Land is one and can not be divided!  We protest any talk of negotiating our precious Land away because we know that we and only we, the people of Israel are the violinist who can make this Holy Land produce music for the entire world to enjoy.  And as Rita at the Jerusalem Conference said, (and her albums were best sellers on the Iranian black market),  if they don't want to talk to us, we"ll sing to them. 

Let us extend an open invitation, as you have done, Jews and Non Jews alike, to come and to celebrate with us the miraculous return of the Jews to their ancient Homeland  At the same time please exclude all those who want to destroy and deligitimize our Sovereign Rights to our Land.  They do not belong in this Parade

I would like to applaud and express our deep appreciation to the Rabbi's, Organizations and Media who have come out to raise awareness and to protest those groups who wish to ruin the day by participating in a deception that they love Israel and behind the scenes back stab those very Jews who are the dust of the earth, holding on to the land with their very fingertips.
