An open letter to the Gedolei Hador

Yehiyoo Leratzon Imrei Fi...
In this weeks Parsha, the Torah reiterated many times over that Hashem is true to His promise to the Avoth to give us Eretz Yisroel. It is not because we are necessarily worthy and even after Chait Haegel when Hashem wishes to disinherit Am Yisroel, Moshe Rabeinu uses the argument that Hashem will be true to His Promise to the Avot. In Parshas Ekev it continuously repeats the points that when we keep the Mitzvoth to DO them then Hashem will send us blessings. It is not enough to learn the Torah, we are obligated to do the Mitzvoth.
How can we do the Mitzvoth Teluyuot Baaretz when we willingly don't even make a statement that Eretz Yisroel is our Biblical Inheritance. The Rabbinic and Spiritual Leaders of Am Yisroel are Silent to current events that are very reminiscent to pre Nazi Germany. Without Internet Access and a reluctance to use the Internet as a tool, how can we be aware of the dangers that are facing Am Yisroel and the World.
If we truly have the yearning to keep the Mitzvoth Teluyot Baaretz, Am Yisroel would put our rightful claim to the Land instead of being Silent. By being Silent to what the Nations of the World wish to do with our Precious Gift Eretz Yisroel, is a Chillul Hashem which is interpreted as a rejection on our part of our Covenant with the Avot.
Bush and Condeleeza Rice are working to build up the PA (Abbas and company) so that they will have strength to fight Hamas. On August 2, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice met with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Prime Minister Salam Fayyad and the Palestinian Authority Cabinet ministers to discuss current issues in the Middle East. Bringing a message of the American people's commitment to assisting the Palestinian people, Secretary Rice put words into action by signing a framework agreement for $80 million in U.S. assistance to strengthen and reform the Palestinian security sector. Learn more about the Secretary's visit. ( ) In fact, today my husband showed me an article from Debka, posted Thursday August 2, that Olmert Approves Plan for Palestinian Town.
Please read the origin of the Palestinian Authority to Nazi Germany sent to me by a very caring Jew by the name of Buddy Macy.
Please let us not forget that the Rabbanim were silent pre Holocaust discouraging Jews from going to Eretz Yisroel. The present Government of Israel is anti Torah. The Chareidi world refuses to take a leadership role to proclaim Eretz Yisroel is our Biblical Inheritance and that we and only we can realize the ultimate purpose of Am Yisroel to be a Mamlechet Kohanim VeGoy Kadosh in Eretz Yisroel where the Mitzvoth can be actualized to their full potential. Involvement by Torah Jews, hundreds of thousands will make a difference. Yet at the Disengagement the Chareidi Community and their leaders were silent. Maybe the silence was the cause of their pain since by not speaking out for our Biblical Inheritance, a small part of the population, the people of Gush Katif and their supporters, including the youth, were forced to carry the burden on their own. Maybe Jews of Gush Katif were expelled because of areivus. Maybe they are worthy of staying on the land. The unfortunate reality was that the majority of Torah Jews and secular Jews in Eretz Yisroel and in the Diaspora did not join with them to proclaim Eretz Yisroel is rightfully ours. Maybe Hashem wants each and every Jew to claim Eretz Yisroel as their own. We were then all collectively Chayav. Why do we expect anything better from those that weren't brought up with Torah. Countless miracles have occurred since 1948 when Am Yisroel once again became a sovereign nation, and the ongoing miracles happen each and every day in Sderot (loss of life relative to number of attacks), and were a daily occurrence in Gush Katif.
Eretz Yisroel is now in our hands. We have the capability to keep Shemittah. But we need the actual Land. Even if we can keep Shemittah in Bnei Brak and Tel Aviv, that's not going to help someone who has a Nachala in Yehuda and Shomron. We are promised blessings of peace, security and prosperity of we keep and do the Mitzvoth and curses otherwise. Can we go happenstance to the curses that are facing us?
Also, it distressed me deeply to read how the Gedoilim came out against the Chasidish Concert to celebrate the 40 years of reunification of Yerushalyim on the argument that it's not Tznius. There was no mention or recognition on the part of the Gedoilim of support on the purpose of this concert which was to bring chizuk and express our love and devotion to Eretz Yisroel and Yerushalyim. If Tznius was truly an issue, the Gedoilim might have suggested 2 concerts, one for men and one for women. I in fact went to an all women's concert on Yom Yerushalyim in Binyanei Hauma and it was electrifying. The spirit and love and devotion of the young and older women for Eretz Yisroel and Yerushalyim, mamash brought me to tears. The women danced far from the band so there would be no problem of Tzniut. Even if the band would have been behind a Mechitza it would have been fine.
The Chait Hamiraglim and the root of Lashon Hara was the failure of the Gedoilei Hador of the Midbar to desire entry and conquering of Eretz Yisroel. This Chassidish Concert is a Tikkun of the Chait Hamiraglim since it is positive expression with Song and Dance regarding Eretz Yisroel. Why did the Gedoilim wish to suppress this positive expression regarding Eretz Yisroel?
I also believe in Tzniut and I can attest to you that the organizers and the 10,000 people that already purchased tickets also know the value of Tzniut. That is why they made the concert with separate entrances and separate seating.
My last question to you is, Was Hakhel at the end of the Shemittah cycle with separate seating? My understanding is that it was for men, women and children. Logistically, it's difficult for the mother to take the entire family of little kids on her own. Especially with a large family with many little kids. I think that the spiritual level of the people were so high that having family standing together and hearing the Melech read from the Torah was too powerful for any suggestion of impropriety.
The people from the settlements are on a very spiritually high level due to all their sacrifices. Of course they too are human. They desperately need the chizuk to raise their spirits and an outlet to express to Hashem how much they love Him and wish to follow His Mitzvoth in Eretz Yisroel. It is truly a disservice to suspect them of anything lower than that. May I suggest that the Gedoilim themselves make an appearance at such a concert.

In his book, "Preachers of Hate," Kenneth Timmerman describes the roots of the Fatah movement.

Grand Mufti with Hitler

"But al-Husseini [Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem] owes his place in history to a meeting that took place on Nov. 28, 1941, in Berlin, where he had gone to convince Adolf Hitler of his total dedication to the Nazi goal of exterminating the Jews, and offered to raise an Arab legion to carry out that task in the Middle East. For the mufti, the meeting with Hitler was the culmination of an eight-year effort to convince the Nazis to forge an alliance with the Palestine Arab Higher Committee he headed. Their once-secret pact, which I shall describe, marks the beginning of Nazi-style anti-Semitism as a mass movement in the Arab world."
"...Ever since then, the world has known the mufti's most famous disciple as Yasser Arafat."
