Arabs Infiltrate Itamar, Beat Shepherds and Soldiers. Encouraged by "Rabbis for Human Rights"????????


Dear Esteemed Rabbanim, Media Personnel and activist list, 

The subject of this email is from today's news on Arutz7. 

Calling upon all RABBIS FOR TORAH. Please make the time to come on Sunday morning at 11:00 in front of the Israel Consulate on 42nd Street and 2nd Ave run by AFSI.  (see details below) There will be a Sefer Torah.  Tenu Kavod LaTorah. Bring Honor to the Torah! Bring your congregations.. Don't ask who else will be there.  It doesn't matter even if you are the only Rabbi that comes.  G-d will take note. The most important thing is our Hishtadlus, our willingness to try to do what we can. Deep down you know that we must proclaim what it says in the Torah or else there is a Chillul Hashem.  Rejoice around the Torah!  Let us be proud Jews and proclaim our entitlement of Yerushalyim, Har Habayit, Yehudah and the Shomron based on Torah.  We are the Chosen People for good reason.  We are a Kingdom of Priests and a Holy Nation.  Our Sovereignty in Israel, whose boundaries include all of Judea and Samaria brings peace and prosperity to mankind.  We are the seed of Avrohom, Yitzchok and Yaakov and we pride ourselves in studying and keeping the Commandments of the Torah.  This is what sets us apart.  This is what makes us a Holy Nation! 

Will these "RABBIS for Human Rights" set the tone??? Surely our enemies will publicize their message.  In today's world, inaction while our enemies are proactive is our greatest danger.

 It is no wonder that these Arabs feel empowered following the demolition and destruction  of the newly established shul in Givat Aryeh, near Itamar authorized by Israel.  Equally upsetting is the support these Arabs are receiving from "Rabbis for Human Rights" !?!

This shul was established in answer to the Pogrom against the Fogel family from Itamar. Recently they celebrated a Hachnosat Sefer Torah. This was their answer to the atrocities against them. (Apparently, according to these "Rabbis", the Fogel Family and the residents of Itamar aren't human so they are not candidates for Human Rights.  Chopping off heads of babies 3 months old and murdering the parents and the siblings in cold blood is not a problem.  The Synagogue is a problem. Jews that settle the Land of Israel is a problem).  Did I miss the condemnation by these "Rabbis of Human Rights"  of the inhuman animalistic behavior by terrorists who show no remorse!  If so please enlighten me.  

So much for these "Rabbis" engaging in interfaith dialogue and twinning with Muslim groups affiliated with Muslim Brotherhood.  Rabbis for Human Rights - North America and Rabbis for Human Rights Israel  check them out or rather X them out!

Arabs Infiltrate Itamar, Beat Shepherds and Soldiers

Arabs from the village of Akraba infiltrated an agricultural area in the town of Itamar on Thursday morning, beating residents.
By David Lev

Arabs from the village of Akraba infiltrated an agricultural area in the town of Itamar on Thursday morning. The Arabs came looking for a fight – equipped with metal bars and sticks, stones and other items. The entered an area where some Jewish residents of the town were grazing a flock of sheep and attacked them, inflicting injuries on some of the shepherds. The Arabs also threatened to come back later that night for another attack – this time with guns.

The shepherds called for help from IDF troops, who were attacked as well when they arrived. Two Arabs who attacked residents and soldiers were arrested. A resident of the town managed to take video of the attack. Security staff of the yishuv filed a complaint with police Thursday afternoon over the attack.

Residents said that they saw the Arab attackers taking instructions over the phone from leftist groups – including the "Rabbis for Human Rights Groups," which consists largely of Conservative and Reform rabbis who have made it their mission to help Arab villagers in Judea and Samaria fight against Jewish residents.

Only two weeks ago, a spokesperson for the Samaria Residents' Council, officials of the Civil Administration denote the specific borders of the area belonging to Itamar – which Arab agricultural workers are not allowed to use, or even to enter. Nevertheless, the Council said, Arabs continued to seek ways to sneak onto Jewish land in Itamar, and Thursday's attack showed just how far they were willing to go – with a premeditated attack on Jewish shepherds who had done nothing to provoke them.

In the wake of the incident, Samaria Council head Gershon Mesika said that the incident was "serious, consisting of an attack on civilians and soldiers. I call on police and the IDF to act against these rioters and criminals – both for the attack, which could have ended in tragedy, and for their illegal entrance into Itamar," he said

From AFSI:








Speakers will include our grass roots leaders who are not afraid to criticize the Israeli government when it follows policies that desecrate G-d's name!


This protest has been triggered by the recent destruction of the synagogue at Givat Aryeh, and the confiscation of the Torah scrolls. We are also protesting additional planned demolitions about which we have been informed:  in Givat HaUlpana in Bet-El, Givat Assaf, Amona, and additional demolitions of homes in Migron. The AFSI Chizuk group saw three demolished homes there on our recent November visit. 

           The uplifting story of the creation of Givat Aryeh by a group of young, Jewish pioneers, led by YEDAYA SHOHAM, in response to the brutal butchery of five members of the Fogel family in Itamar, descends into a tragic tale of demolition and disgrace. AFSI was privileged to be part of the joyous creation of the synagogue, and the dedication, on Nov. 15, 2011,  of a Torah scroll rescued from the Holocaust.

            On Dec. 1 we learned of the Israeli government's betrayal of its purpose and its people when it sent in a Destructo squad, including Arabs, to demolish the modest tent homes and the synagogue on the hilltop.
