News from Hebron: Shooting at Beit Hadassah

An Letter To My Friends in Hebron, amv"sh
Once again they are shooting at Beit Hadassah.
Hebron must continue to speak with outrage regarding the dangers facing ALL of Yesha. Focus on Hebron or on Beit Hashalom but speak out forcefully at the same time for all of Eretz Yisroel. VeAhavta Lerayacha Kamocha.  Please join with the NJC (New Jewish Congress), Rabbinical Congress for Peace, all like minded people and parties  like "Eretz Yisroel H'aShlema" Feiglin,  Tsafrir Ronen, Benny Elon, Hazit, National Union, Merzl,  Yaalon, Paul Eidelberg,  Uri Ariel, Medad, Effi Eitan etc. etc.  etc. and  with the mayors of Yesha and Directors of Yesha institutions and American Friends  of Yesha Institutions and publicly address the Young Israel, the OU and Agudath Yisroel of America about why they have not been outspoken against the Roadmap. 
These organizations have networks that reach thousands of shuls and Rabbis and hundreds of thousands of Jews in America.  Jerusalem and Yesha are synonymous.  Concessions of Yesha translates to reducing Jerusalem to simply a museum piece. Why make Jerusalem a relic of the past with no living life of its own? An Undivided Jerusalem living side by side next to a Palestinian State is precisely that.   And that's assuming rather naively and stupidly that it is a "peaceful Palestinian State".
Why are WE as a nation being SILENT regarding Eretz Yisroel!!!  How can we be SILENT when  President Bush says to "end the occupation"??? Shtika Kehoday Damya.  Being Silent is like complicit agreement. Let's scream out the first Rashi in Breishis.
This Land belongs to each and every Jew equally  because we, the seed of Avraham, Yitchok and Yaakov are the only rightful inheritors.  At the very least, each and every Jew living in the Diaspora has to recognize that Eretz Yisroel belongs to them as much as Eretz Yisroel belongs to the most courageous Jew living in Hebron. A mother will begin to love her child more and more by sacrificing her time and energy for her child. Eretz Yisroel is our baby.  Each and every Jew has the obligation to do whatever possible to protect Eretz Yisroel no matter where they reside. Such expression of devotion and protectiveness will lead to a greater love and appreciation of Eretz Yisroel from the Jew in the Diaspora.
 Why aren't these mainstream Jewish organizations not speaking up for YESHA????  Why are they acting as if Eretz Yisroel is not relevant to them personally or for our generation? 
Ask Pesach Lerner about his new initiative for Yerushalayim Parshat Shlach together with "Rabbi" Yona Metzger.  What a pathetic response!!!! How can he join with "Rabbi" Metzger who is clearly just an agent of the Olmert administration, who gives his blessings for a Palestinian State. 
What is the OU sitting together with Peace Now in the Conference of Presidents supporting and actually PROMOTING the peace process and the Roadmap??.  Don't they represent or rather misrepresent their Orthodox constituencies???? Apparently their constituencies don't even have a clue that their leadership is promoting a Palestinian State in the name of peace and the expulsion of Jewish settlements.!
How can SHAS and UTJ  represent themselves as Torah Judaism when being part of this evil gov't or even contemplating being part of this evil gov't, means violating numerous very serious Mitzvoth D'orayta.  These parties don't represent Daas Torah at all.  Rav Eliashiv clearly gave a Psak that everything must be done to stop concessions since concessions will only make security worse!  He said to publicize it in his name.  He has told many people, that Gush Katif was a big mistake!!!.  Why isn't Agudath Yisroel of America publicizing his psak against concession to ALL of YESHA???.  One directive on the part of Moetzes Gedolei Hatorah would send the clear message to Bush that the Roadmap is anti Torah!  One directive to their constituencies could bring hundreds of thousands of letters to the White House within a few days.
With a United Voice we will succeed!!  Let's put it under the umbrella of Hakadosh Baruch Hu!  The Torah Umbrella.  There's no lack of leadership roles for each and every leader.  Why can't we unite w/o worrying about whose umbrella we are uniting under.   The Prime Minister's job is simply a position of being a public servant. Different individuals can take turns with that position. Such a job carries tremendous responsibilities and is a big headache.  I seriously wonder why anyone even wants the job.  Yet each and every leader should not shirk their G-d given responsibility to use their G-d given leadership qualities and lead in their particular areas of strength.  Each and every leader should recognize that they have individual strengths and not G-d forbid see others with leadership qualities as competition.  We are all on the same team!  It takes a matronly headmistress in the play "Oklahoma" to bring the cowboys and the farmers to be friends.  She takes the pistol and points it at their heads which sends the message BE FRIENDS OR ELSE.... So they have no choice but to listen to her and actually enjoy dancing together...

Start the year off right. Easy ways to stay in shape in the new year.
