Dear Naomi Mauer and Matt Solomon, amv"sh

I have been in touch with Libby Kahane and she suggested I contact you personally.

I know the Jewish Press always was and continues to be a great supporter of Rabbi Meir Kahane ob"m and now you have been in the forefront in support of his grandson Meir Ettinger who is continuing the legacy and struggle of his namesake his grandfather ob'm hy"d Rabbi Meir Kahane. Please do whatever is in your power to offset the slander, and any pretexts for slander with positive speech regarding Meir Ettinger and the hilltop youth. Especially now, as Meir's extension of Administration Detention is up for Review, Feb. 21 2016. 

Can you please print this as a letter to the Editor. 

Subject: Embracing Meir Ettinger and the Hilltop Youth: Free Meir Ettinger from Administrative Detention!

Dear Editor, amv"sh

It is crucial that we put a stop to the slander on Meir Ettinger and the hilltop youth. It has become literally a blood libel of Jews against their fellow Jew.  Either there is a fair and just trial for those incarcerated or under house arrest, or these Hilltop Settlers should be released. Dear Readers, Please write letters to Netanyahu  and Yaalon and ask your Rabbi and Spiritual leader to encourage a massive letter writing campaign to PM Benjamin Netanyahu mankals@pmo.gov.il, MK Moshe (Bogy) Yaalon myaalon@knesset.gov.il asking for the release of Meir Ettinger and the Hilltop Youth under Administrative Detention.

 In the meanwhile we need to counter the blood libel with the opposite, with positive speech about the hilltop youth.  There are so many positive things to say about them.

They are beautiful kids, idealistic,

They love the land with all their heart and soul.
They love the Torah and they love their fellow Jew. 
They are hard working kids who have learned the art of construction and farming and shepherding.
They lead a wholesome simple life.
Many of them have experienced serious trauma being thrown out of their homes or are friends with kids who were thrown out of their homes
They are subjected daily and have experienced first hand, horrific terror attacks or attempts on their lives either on family members or friends and/or neighbors, living in Judea and Samaria. 
The government has been lax about their security and the security of their families as
They are second class citizens living under Civil Administration under the Military rule of law and therefore
They do not have the same rights as other Jews or even Arabs.  There is a bias against the Settlers in Judea and Samaria. 
Arabs build illegally yet in comparison significantly fewer such homes are demolished. 
Arabs continuously throw rocks, firebombs, shoot at innocent Israeli's and
Jews are at risk if they try to defend themselves.  On the other hand
They are under terrible scrutiny all the time, under surveillance, as if they were the ones who were perpetrating hundreds of terror attacks weekly as documented in HaKol Hayehudi. 

 This alienation in turn has alienated them from the mainstream Rabbis and the government who betrayed them and their families by allowing this modus operandi to continue. 

On top of all this...Seeing their friends, under house arrest or incarcerated, tortured under administrative detention doesn't help endear the kids to the establishment.   

Meir Ettinger is a selfless Jew like his Grandfather Meir Kahane ob"m whose only concern is for the people of Israel. 
He loves Jews,
He loves Torah and
He loves Eretz Yisroel.
He wishes to actualize yearnings of the Jewish people for a government that is governed according to Torah.

Naomi and Matt, amv"sh

Thank you so much for your consideration of all this material...

Please take some of your precious time to watch these video's of the Jewish Heritage Project under Ezra Ridgely of Toronto whose most recent video addresses a Compensation Peace Plan similar to Rabbi Meir's Kahane's plan and Moshe Feiglin's  plan to pay Arabs who are interested to leave the Land of Israel.  
Please interview Ezra as did Tamar Yonah of Arutz7. 
For the benefit of all those CC'd above, I am providing links to Rabbi Meir Kahane's ob"m hy"d words and lessons that have been featured on the pages of the Jewish Press for 40 years.  .
Six months ago, Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu wrote of Meir Ettinger's arrest.  August 4, 2105
Investigations by the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) have led to the arrest of 24-year-old Meir Ettinger, grandson of the late Rabbi Meir Kahane, on suspicion of nationalist crimes...It can easily be speculated that interrogations of the suspects exposed enough evidence for the Shin Bet to arrest Ettinger.  ...The Nationalist Crimes Unit [of the Shin Bet] was created three years ago by Tzipi…to eradicate nationalist crimes, i.e. actions of what are known as Jewish 'rebels' who, for their part, feel that they are acting to prevent the further deterioration of the state of Israel.


On August 16, 2015 you published an article by Donni Fuchs in Defense of those under Administrative Detention and whose photo was of Meir Ettinger, grandson of Rabbi Meir Kahane, seen at Magistrate's Court in the northern city of Nazareth. 
... Far more upsetting to me are those who purport to be right-wing, (even religious!) who adopt the language and behavior of the worst elements of the left. I cannot abide that those who endure blood libels from gentiles are quick to perpetuate the same against fellow Jews. Netanyahu and his crony Yaalon are using the abusive tools of the British Mandate, the notorious Administrative Detention, to harass Jews. They are desperate to pin "crimes" on "hill top youth." It suggests that Netanyahu is ready to embark on another campaign of appeasement and that he is trying to quell resistance to any future territorial concessions to the Arabs....

A young man named Meir Ettinger, the grandson of Rabbi Meir Kahane (may G-d avenge his blood!), is now being held in administrative detention, and in accordance with the draconian tenets of this abuse of power, they can hold him for six months without charges and without a trial. After six months of enduring whatever abuses the Shabak puts him through, they can renew his detention for another six months under the same Bolshevik conditions. And it is my understanding that they can indefinitely continue this process. During this time, the Shabak and other nefarious agencies of the Israeli government will surely torture him physically and psychologically and try to extract a confession.
Like grandfather like grandson. If Meir Ettinger is being held for the same reasons as his grandfather, then one thing is for certain: his grandfather would have been proud of him and the other Jewish freedom fighters being detained. He too was innocent of the many unwarranted charges against him. Rabbi Kahane's sole "crime" was speaking the Torah truth, regardless of the consequences.
Again, it must be emphasized that were there ANY evidence of criminal activity, they would have all been charged. That is what is so grotesque about this whole process. Administrative detention is used precisely when there is no evidence. It is a means of punishing those they deem to represent examples of Jewish militancy and extremism. The intention is to crush any vestige of Jewish resistance to the culture of surrender and appeasement. The use of this immoral punishment is proof that there was no crime!
Shame on Netanyahu and Moshe Yaalon, the purveyors of this latest "Hunting Season." Shame on Naftali Bennett and Ayelet Shaked, the darlings of the loyalist, weak-kneed religious right, for partaking in this immoral hunt against Jews. They are acting as the Left did during the notorious hunting season when they preyed upon heroic fighters and handed them over to the British to be tortured and killed. Jewish history will remember their roles in this sin. Additionally, they are inciting the Arabs with their own propaganda, and the end result will certainly be more murdered Jews. There will be no atonement.

Honenu legal aid attorney Yuval Zemer, who represents Ettinger, stated that his client had been subjected to shaking, harsh interrogations and violence while in Shin Bet custody...When a prisoner complains of torture, the Attorney General orders an initial investigation of the complaint to clarify whether the case fits the "necessity defense" which exempts the interrogator of responsibility. As of now, initial internal investigations have prevented thorough, independent investigations of all the complaints PCATI has submitted on behalf of prisoners.
Sworn affidavits of prisoners who underwent interrogation since the above ruling reveal that the license given by the Court to Shin Bet interrogators to employ their independent discretion in certain cases has allowed them to continue employing violent methods of interrogation.
