A GESHRAI! HELP!!! EMERGENCY!!!! OD YOSEIF CHAI: Yeshiva's Appeal Against Demolition REJECTED


Dear Rabbanim, Print Media, Friends and Family, amv'sh

This is a very bad OMEN.  This can not be taken quietly. 

A  Yeshiva and Synagogue destroyed in the Shomron or anywhere sends a terrible message to the world. 

I re-experience the destruction of Gush Katif shuls.  A wound still festering, now reopened and in the process of  being stabbed once again. 

What agitation did the Gush Katif people do to deserve the destruction of their synagogues, still not rebuilt?  (All except 1 or 2 out of 26)

Can a Yeshiva and a Synagogue be demolished retroactively at the whim of an Israeli minister heavily involved in politics after many have signed agreed, processed and built.  This building has been  faithfully serving  the Shomron communities as a Beit Knesset and  Jewish Center of Learning.  It is also a Yeshiva Boys High School.  Can this building  be retroactively  annulled, demolished,  erased and blotted off the map?  Can it's reason to exist cease based on the decisions of politicians and  bureaucrats who say so?  What explanation can you offer those high school students? Clearly it is "You have no rights in this place.  Leave this area immediately.  Your house and home and school and shul are not protected by a security system!!!!

 How can this  civil administration, ruled by politics, override previous administrations that signed and approved???

What message does this send the world? Better left unsaid and Al Tiftach Peh LaSatan......

Barak is in America and the timing of this is not coincidental!  WOW!  Can't beat this gift.....Destruction in Judea and Samaria, a wonderful present to Obama from BARAK the "Defense" Minister of Israel under Netanyahu!!  Beats cigars and watches.

This Yeshiva was built by Israel and has been standing 11 years!  It's Rosh Yeshiva is depicted as a dangerous agitator. 

So let's talk about agitation!  Let's talk about  how the government  of Israel deals with  real agitation from the Palestinians like trespassing, stealing, and  arson on farms within Judea and Samaria  Let's talk about the same scenario on farms in the Galil and the Negev.  Let's talk about how the IDF sits with their hands folded and at times, from orders above, does nothing to protect the property of  taxpaying Jews, citizens of the State,  living in Judea and Samaria.  The IDF is confused as per who they must protect and defend.  They know that they must surely protect the stone throwing, arson setting Arabs from those "militant" settlers. If one of those settlers even dare to burn even a tire, that's it for them.  Jail,.  Isolation..  Even if they had the thought in their mind to commit the crime of burning a tire, now that's reallllllly bad......Compare their pre-sentencing jail term with proven Palestinian terrorists....And  which right wing settler has the means to afford to pay the lawyers the fees that are necessary to defend themselves?  The Palestinians have pockets that are a bottomless pit and  the best lawyers are hired on their behalf.  By whom?  Shouldn't we ask? Their money flows from the European Union, America, Saudi Arabai and of course Iran and their proxies in Lebanon and Syria etc.....The Police  accept the lies of Arabs as testimony without investigation of the facts and then send out stories based on lies and fabrication to the media throughout the world who are very quick to report this "news" .   But the IDF is confused as to how to protect the tax paying settlers before they became "militant"  having been provoked by destructive, trespassers,  stone throwers and  arson setting Palestinians.    .

Why don't the Jewish newspapers carry real stories of agitation instead of prefabricated ones.  How much provoking must the settlers take? 

PLEASE ASK YOURSELF THIS QUESTION.  Would you willingly allow your home to be trespassed, vandalized,  your goats and sheep stolen, Your vineyards ruined, your tractor and farm equipment vandalized and  allow  your families to be  threatened and simply sit there with your hands folded as a sitting duck waiting for even worst things to happen?

 Would you throw up your hands and say i had better run away  from my million dollar or million shekel house that I  have been working so very hard for my whole adult life with the help of family and friends because no one is protecting me and when I defend myself I am called the agitator?

 In fact they will turn the table on me and even before I put a legal claim on them they might submit  reports to the police that I was the one that vandalized their homes, stole their sheep, burnt their vineyards, destroyed their olive trees, shot them, and their grandmother and perhaps they will add that I beat their child etc, why not?  it sounds good,  all based on lies and fabrications and then the  authorities will put
me into  jail and I will need to defend myself.   Maybe the Police will release me that night because of lack of evidence,  but not after all the fabricated charges against me are sent out to world wide press.

Sometimes, they keep big mouths like  me in jail or administration detention and won't even tell me the reason  SO WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF THEY DID THIS TO YOU????? AND BTW....WHERE WOULD YOU RUN TO  BY THE TIME THESE ANARCHIST  REACH

and let us not sit smugly in the diaspora.... Things are progressing at a very fast rate...... Chas Veshalom....

Dear Friends,
Update 5: Av 17 5770 /July 28, '10

In addition to the scandalous interrogation of Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira last monday from 4:00 A.M. until noontime, we have just received the response of the civil adminstration which rejected are appeal and has claimed its prerogative to destroy our building. This comes despite the government having built the structure according to its own approvals.

Pay heed to the timing of these events:
22 July - The civil adminstration announces its final decree to destroy our building. See JPost story

24 July - Barak leaves for the United States for meetings with Obama and his government.
26 July - Once again the Rosh Yeshiva is taken for interrogation and is depicted to the public as a dangerous agitator.
Is this being done to lay the groundwork for the destruction of our yeshiva?

In our estimation the situation is very worrying. We are urging the public to support us on an emergency footing which will allow us to organize in our struggle and to stand firm. Our role is to educate our students. We are not people seeking confrontation. But, now that this serious matter has been thrust upon us, we must be prepared to deal with it in the most firm, determined and professional manner. This will cost a good deal of money, more than what is currently available to operate the yeshiva.

: Stop Harassment of Rav of Od Yosef Chai Letter to Knesset Members

---------- Forwarded message ----------

Subject: Stop Harassment of Rav of Od Yosef Chai


Dear Chavrei Knesset, amv"sh

What exactly did the Rav say that deserved being awoken at 4:00 am traumatizing his family and dehumanizing him as if he was a criminal? Perhaps it's what he didn't clearly say.  Perhaps he didn't clearly spell out or point a finger at the Palestinians who have used their children and ambulances as human shields and lie through their teeth for PR purposes. 

For them are we expected to endanger our Soldiers like we did in Jenin?. 

The hypocrisy of Britain and America!  They clearly would never stand for this cowardly excuse of fighting by the Palestinian enemy that endangered their own little Palestinian children and prey on our merciful nature.  Mercy  on our part thereby endangers human lives and  and causes us to be cruel to our very own soldiers.  Showing mercy to our enemy that behaves in such a despicable fashion merely encourages and escalates their choice of weapons such as using children and ambulances as human shields.

 Restraint on the part of Israel is not in the interest of  innocent Palestinian children and GREATLY endangers Israeli fighting aoldiers  since it forces our soldiers to sitting ducks or easy targets. 

IN Auschwitz the jEWISH prisoners would have embraced an attack on the railroads leading to Auschwitz and the Concentration Camps even if it meant that some Jews would have been killed.  All understood clearly that the intention of bombing the tracks was to stop the process of mass murder of millions and not to kill the number of Jews that happened to have been there at the time.

For shame on those reporters that made is seem like the Rav was a racist that treasures Jewish Blood over Gentile blood.  What a blatant distortion.  It'a obvious to me that  it  is the intent of such Gentiles that determine the Halacha and not their blood type, race or religion.

Here is an article that slanders Rabbis as being racists against Gentiles based on bloodtype.   The headline is quite blatant and accusatory.

Shapira's distinction between Jewish, gentile blood

Members of Knesset:

lease do what you can to stop the slander and incarceration  of G-d fearing Jews and the execution of the  destruction of shuls and communities in Yehudah and the Shomron!--

URGENT! Rosh Yeshiva, Father of 11 arrested 4:am in Yitzhar , Will his Yeshiva Od Yosef Chai be demolished? Knesset on recess can not make a fuss


I received this email from David Bedein, AFSI,  Women in Green and Matot Arim:

Also visit link on A7 for news report

At four o'clock this morning, Israeli security forces swooped down on Shomron Jewish community at Yitzhar, burst into the home of the local Rosh Yeshiva (head of rabbinical school) and arrested him in front of his 11 young children, on charges stemming from a scholary treatise he wrote - many months ago - relating to the dilemma of when it is permitted and not permitted to use force against non-Jews. Some sources say that pro-Palestinian minister Ehud Barak has also given orders to demolish the rabbi's yeshiva in Yitzhar during Barak's seminal visit in the U.S and indeed, a home of a young couple in Shomron was in fact demolished today. All this is being done while the Knesset, Israel's parliament, is in recess and cannot raise a fuss.


ABROAD: It is vital that Ehud Barak upon arrival in the U.S. be swamped with reasonable requests to cease this barbaric treatment of the Jews in Judea and Samaria and to immediately order the cancellation of the directive to demolish the yeshiva - the pretext being a building code violation from 1998 (12 years ago). This could be a precedent for the IDF to destroy hundreds of public buildings in Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria and in Jerusalem. What the Israeli government fears the most is feedback from abroad, so yes, many phone calls can certainly reverse the decisions that have been made. Therefore, foreign citizens pls contact Barak's spokesman, Mr. Seri, at cell phone number 972-50-629-8949.

ISRAELIS AND ABROAD: Use fax or phone to try to get through:

Fax (send to all numbers): 011-972-2-563-2580 (attention: Tzvi Hauser, Cabinet Secretary who reports directly to Netanyahu. And also:
011-972-2-670-5369, 011-972-2-649-6659, 011-972-2-6513955, 011-972-2-6535178, 011-972-2-5664838

Telephone -011-972-2-670-5532 (attention: Tzvi Hauser, Cabinet Secretary)
and also: 011-972-2-675-3227, 011-972-2-640-8457
, 011-972-2-6753333 (if told Prime Minister is not present, ask for any Likud aide or legislator)

Dialling from Israel? Omit 011-972 - instead just dial zero.

If you cannot get through by fax and phone, at least email Israel's ministers and MKs and ask them  to get on the phone to Mr. Netanyahu, and to get into the press making strong statements, before it is too late for them to help (Timing Is Everything). You can write to all of the following:;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;olevy@KNESSET.GOV.IL;;ulandau@KNESSET.GOV.IL;;;anmichaely@KNESSET.GOV.IL;;;;;;;;mmozes@KNESSET.GOV.IL;;uorbach@KNESSET.GOV.IL;;dhershkovitz@KNESSET.GOV.IL;;;;;;;;;;


Please pass this on to your pro-Israel friends (and friends in Israel).

Re: Judean Authonomy Part 3


 Tu B'Av 5770
July 25, 2010

On the Case of Yesha Autonomy Part 3

·       Given and Fundamental:  Jews have exclusive entitlement to Judea and Samaria as well as the entire Israel according to delineated boundaries in Matot Masei -  Divine Law:

o      Source:  Based on the Torah the source of our entitlement to Eretz Yisroel. The concept of a Jewish Homeland is based on Torah. It is the basis of the Balfour Declaration and San Remo Conference.

The Written and Oral Torah has been transmitted down the generations to the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob

·       Condition:  

o      In the Torah, the Jewish Nation collectively is obligated to keep the 613 Mitzvoth in the Land of Israel and in this way will merit the Land.  Failure to keep the commandments causes the Jewish Nation to forfeit their rights to the Land.  Adherence to the commandments ensures security and prosperity in the Land. 

o      Even if the Jewish Nation forfeits their right to the Land of Israel temporarily, the Land will remain faithful to the Jewish Nation and not produce for another foreign power and will wait until the Jewish Nation returns to her in faithfulness.

·       Jews are the only indigenous people to the Land of Israel 

o      Based on the Torah
o      Based on History
o      Based on Archeology

·       Ger Toshav - Non Jews have rights of the Ger Toshav so long as they accept Sovereignty of the Jewish people in the Land of Israel and abide by the 7 Noahide Laws.

o      Rambam – Hilchot Melachim

A Torah Autonomy answers to a higher authority, the Creator of the Worldm  who decides who inherits the Land, over State Law.

Therefore the following resolutions are in order:

·       Jews have entitlement to Judea and Samaria and may not expel fellow Jews.

·       Jews my not destroy Jewish houses of worship unless it is for the purpose of making an even bigger or better House of Worship

·       Jews may not destroy Jewish property, Jewish communities and give away Jewish Land to Arabs.

What to do when the Jewish State chooses to ignore these basic fundamental truths of their religion and the proposed natural resolutions based on these truthes?  What are the Jews in Judea and Samaria to do?

Create a Jewish Autonomy in Judea and Samaria!

  • The Twelve Tribes of Israel are one unit, interdependent and Areivim, responsible for one another.

Definition of Authonomy:  Self Governing, Independant

Q.  Won't the creation of a Judeam Autonomy create disunity and division among Israel turning brother against brother?

A. No. the opposite

Example in the Desert where the tribe of Levi acted independantly and in seeming opposition to his brother for the benefit and unity of the whole as a result of his service to G-d.

The Bracha of Levi in Zos Habracha:   'Your Urim and Your Tumim, befit your devoted one, whom you tested at Massa and challenged at the waters of Meriva. The one who said of his father and mother, I have not favoured him, his brother he did not give recognition, and his children he did not know. For they the Leviim have observed your word and your covenant that they preserve.

The main reason to have a Judean Autonomy is in order to create a prototype of an autonomous Jewish government that is based on Torah, the Oral and Written Law rather than a government that is based on Turkish and British Law.  Democracy is wonderful in many respects but while Torah incorporates many concepts of Democracy, Torah, and democracy at times are at odds with each other and in a Jewish State, Torah should prevail not democracy. 

Hamonei Am in Israel and in the Diaspora  is afraid of this concept.  They are afraid of religious coersion.  It's truly revoltionary system of government that has not been tried for thousands of years, yet Hebraic Law is the basis of all other forms of gov't.   The Shalem Center in Israel and their literary journal Azure focus's on Hebraic Law.  The time has come for serious brainstorming regariding this matter and what better place to implement a prototype Torah autonomy than in Judea and Samaria?

The religious Jews have recently been feeling that they are being coerced by Secular Law.  Rather than a power struggle in this matter, let's the two entities separate temporarily and support one another to implement a Torah Autonomy, a revolutionary concept for our generation on a prototype small scale level.   This way the Secular State of Israel will not feel that they are being coerced in any way and neither will the religious Jews.   There will be many kinks and bugs that will emerge and it will take a strong believing community to persevere until the Halachot are established.  It would not be helpful having a hostile communiity when the going gets rough.

In my next discussion on Judean Autonomy I will discuss the following questions that people have.

Q. When the surrounding enemies of Israel choose to attack this Judean Autonomy Chas Vechalila, wouldn't the STate of Israel have to come to the defense of Judea and Samaria and htis is precisely what the State of Israel is hoping to avoid?

Q, How should we respond when America says No stealth bomber planes for Israel and invoke economic sanctions and all the Arab Nations and European Union join  (the order can be reversed and the Arabs start a boycott of Israeli products and then everyione else joins and America says no Stealth bombers etc)  when the Judean Autonomy  proudly proclaims we are the indigenous Poeopl of the Land of Israel?  Won't the isolation be unbearable?

to be continued....

U.S. Tax Dollars to UN Entering Black Hole says Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Ranking Republican


Now here is something American Jewish Organizations with Washington Offices can focus on! 

After all, what's the point of conducting seminars on educating Jews on the importance of reporting our taxes according to the Law of the Land - Dina D'Malchusa Dina  knowing that our hard earned money in taxes is eventually going towards supporting terror and destruction via the Black HOle of the UN. Rather unsettling???????

So you answer, 2 wrongs don't make a right.

Unfortunately, our enemies use the submissive posture of self accusation, self admission of wrongdoing and blame as an excuse  to paint Jews  antisemitic-ally and flawed. They have added accusation upon accusations for wrongdoings whose motives were  in no way criminal or sinister.  Upon investigation it will be revealed that indeed these perceived misdoings did in fact serve some moral, positive end purpose.

Time to join this Congresswomen and  go on the offensive against allocation of  taxpayers dollars to real evil and destructive forces.   Why waste energy for example, on holding seminars across the country being so apologetic for Rubashkin whose questionable policies ultimately tried to save jobs of  the legal employees of Agriprocessor.  Our willingness to admit quilt of any kind to a justice system that ultimately uses it against our brother to prosecute him makes us suspicious and wary of American Justice.  Why publicize the regret of the Spinke Rebbe whose allocations of money to Rebbeim had legal issues  but ultimately served the Good of Mankind (Torah education) and plead guilty for Jonathan Pollard who tried to protect Israel from weapons of mass destruction when America reneged on it's promise to share intelligence that was important for Israel's security. 

Let us attack the forces that triggered misdoings on the part of our brothers in an act of desperation ,  rather than constantly apologize for these misdoings! IN addition, let us attack American Foreign Policy involving funding terror across the globe establishing a terror State in the heart of Israel.

Ros-Lehtinen Comments on Scathing Report on UN, Says U.S. Tax Dollars to UN Entering 'Black Hole'

Alex Cruz, (202) 225-8200


(WASHINGTON) - U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Ranking Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, commented today on a scathing report by the former UN undersecretary general of the Office of Internal Oversight Services, which concluded "There is no transparency [at the UN], there is a lack of accountability. I do not see any signs of reform in the Organization." Statement by Ros-Lehtinen:

"The stew of corruption, mismanagement, and negligence long-plaguing the UN has reached a boiling point.

"After reading this report, it is even clearer that U.S. taxpayer dollars being shipped off to the UN will continue to be sucked into a black hole unless true reforms are enacted.

"A lack of transparency and accountability is far from the UN's only vice, however. Its endemic anti-Israel bias and inability to stand up to the enemies of freedom and human rights are examples of how the UN has been hijacked by rogue regimes and has abandoned its founding principles.

"With U.S. unemployment at nearly 10-percent and our deficits soaring, the ocean of American taxpayer dollars flowing to such an unaccountable and broken organization is more than a waste - it is an outrage.

"We owe it to the American people to withhold funding to the UN until it gets its act together."

Note: Ros-Lehtinen is the author of the United Nations Transparency, Accountability, and Reform Act (H.R. 557), which conditions U.S. funding to the UN on the implementation of concrete, structural, sweeping reforms throughout the UN system. This legislation enjoys the support of over 100 cosponsors.

It's Possible to Withstand the Pressure! Fear Not and Be Not Dismayed. Chizuk from Women in Green(WIT) on Tisha B'Av Night


(Taken from email from Women for Israel's Tomorrow (Women in Green).)

Tisha be-Av Night, opposite the American Consulate: In the Ears of Thousands: "It's Possible to Withstand the Pressure!" "Fear Not and Be Not Dismayed!"


            Thousands participated in the annual Tisha be-Av night march of the Women for Israel's Tomorrow (Women in Green) movement around the walls of the Old City.


            Yoram Ettinger, the first of the speakers, said opposite the American Consulate:

            "We must learn from the leadership that was until Oslo. How to withstand the American pressure - to learn from Ben-Gurion, from Eshkol, from Golda Meir, from Shamir. We have to act as they did.


            "The American public, unlike its President, stands united behind the State of Israel, as is shown by every public-opinion poll conducted in the United States in the past year and a half. The American public supports Obama's foreign policy except on a single matter: they expect him to be more pro-Israeli than his current policy.


            "The American Congress follows the public, and signals time after time its displeasure with the President's attitude to Israel.


            "This phenomenon is consistent since 1948. All the prime ministers understood that it is possible to withstand pressure. In 1948 the American administration ordered Ben-Gurion to agree to the evacuation of Jerusalem, to internationalize Jerusalem, and to stop the conquest in the Negev. The American administration accompanied this pressure with a military and economic embargo.


            "Ben-Gurion responded by:

* the construction of Jewish neighborhoods on the cease-fire line

* moving thousands of new immigrants to Jerusalem

* moving the government ministries from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem

* building access routes to Jerusalem

* challenging the entire world

They asked him, how does he withstand the pressure? His response was: if he were to surrender to the pressure of those opposing Israel, he would betray its supporters; and if he were to withstand the pressure, this would give added support to Israel's friends, and he relies on their power in the United States.


            "In 1967 Johnson pressured Levi Eshkol that he dare not annex eastern Jerusalem, and demanded not to build beyond the Green Line. Eshkol's response: he built Ramat Eshkol and annexed east Jerusalem.


            "In 1970, Nixon, with the Rogers Plan, pressed to divide Jerusalem. Golda's response was: the construction of Gilo, Ramot, Neveh Yaakov, French Hill. Nixon was angry, he was furious, but he knew that, in the long run, he has an ally on whom he could rely.


            "Ben-Gurion coined the phrase: The entire world will judge the state of the Jews by its attitude to Jerusalem. If Jerusalem will not be the red line, that is not to be passed, the pressures will increase."


            "It is to be hoped," Ettinger concluded his speech, "that Israel's leaders will understand that it's possible to withstand American pressure."


            After this, the thousands continued on the march around the walls. Rabbi Shalom Gold and MK Prof. Aryeh Eldad spoke at Lion's Gate. MK Prof. Aryeh Eldad's speech in Hebrew can be found on the Arutz 7 (Israel National News) site in the De'ot section:


            Rabbi Gold said that each one of us must give an accounting of his actions, not only to the generation in which he lives, but to all the generations. We are obligated to guard Eretz Israel - obligated by all the generations. He based his words on the midrash that says:

"When the Temple was destroyed, the Holy One, blessed be He, weeps and says: My children, where are you? My kohanim (priests), where are you? My lovers, where are you? The Holy One, blessed be He, said to Jeremiah: Today I am like a a person who has an only son, who made a wedding for him, and he died during the ceremony. Go and summon Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Moses from their graves, for they know how to weep. Jeremiah immediately went to the Cave of Machpelah, and said to the Patriarchs of the world: Stand, the time has come when you are summoned before the Holy One, blessed be He. They asked him: Why? He said to them, I do not know, for he feared, lest they say to him: This was [the lot] of our children in your time."


            Nadia Matar, the chairperson of the Women For Israel's Tomorrow (Women in Green) summed up the march with the emotional words: "Now, the central issue is Eretz Israel. And, as is written in the Torah portion of Devarim: the divine command is 'Go up, take possession ... Fear not and be not dismayed.' We must stop being afraid and fearlessly declare that the Land of Israel belongs to the people of Israel. The Land must be closely guarded. We cannot repeat the mistakes that were made in our camp. Not another Gush Katif. Now, we are obligated to breach the fences, to strengthen the youth in the army that declares it will not take part in the expulsion order. And the freeze must be smashed by building and planting everywhere. 'We will certainly go up, and we shall gain possession of it, for we shall surely overcome it' (Numbers 13:30)."

יש לך הרבה חברים?

 יש צורך דחוף לערוך אסיפות הסברה ברחבי הארץ מ-2 סיבות:

 (א) התהליך המדיני מתחיל. הוא עלול להיות חמור כמו אוסלו או ההתנתקות  או לסכן את ירושלים.

(ב) המצב ביישובי יהודה ושומרון מחמיר בגלל ההקפאה. יש לעמוד על  תנופת בנייה גדולה בספטמבר.   

 דרושים אנשים שיארחו אסיפת הסברה בסלון ביתם. יש צורך לקבץ 30 - 40 אנשים (למשל 15 - 20 זוגות) מחוג החברים שלך, לשכנע אותם לבוא, ולהזכיר להם יום לפני. המרצה שיגיע אליך יהיה מומחה להתיישבות (כגון: ראש מועצה, פעיל ותיק באחד היישובים וכו') או חבר כנסת. אם הינך מוכן לארח אסיפת הסברה כזו - נא פנה - לציין שמך, מקום המגורים, מספר טלפון שלך, ו-2 הצעות לתאריך. לציין אם יש העדפה מיוחדת ("עדיף בשפה אנגלית", "עדיף איש התישבות ולא חבר כנסת", "עדיף דתי/חילוני", וכו'.

 הערה: אתה מכיר את חבריך, שים לב שאסיפות ההסברה מיועדות לאנשי ימין בלבד כלומר מי שבעד ירושלים, יהודה ושומרון ורמת הגולן. אין שום רצון להזמין אנשי שמאל כי וויכוחי הסרק איתם מעצבן את מי שבאמת רוצה לשמוע - חבל. 


דחוף: התרעה מיידית מפני הרס בתים של אחינו ביהודה ושומרון - העבירו את הקישורית להלן, לצעירים ולצעירים בנפשם



Do you have a nice group of friends?

 The Yehuda veShomron community and its representatives in Knesset want your help, so as to hold a series of living-room chats in various cities and locations in Israel and explain the situation. In particular -- a new peace process is beginning which is predicted to be worse than Oslo and the Gush Katif disengagement. Also, the Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria have a serious building problem so we need to be concerned about a return to the 67 borders. Too few people realize this is about to happen -- and practically no-one knows the inside story!

 Please let us know if you can bring together 30 - 40 friends (can be 15 - 20 couples) for this purpose because awareness is all-important.

Fwd: THE TEMPLE MOUNT: PART II From Prof. Paul Eidelberg

The Temple Mount: Part II


Prof. Paul Eidelberg


It was pointed out in Part I that Jewish control of the Temple Mount, Israel's holiest site, is a fundamental precondition of uncontested Jewish control of Jerusalem and, eventually, of Jewish sovereignty over the Land of Israel.  Moreover, Jewish control over the Temple Mount will restore to the Jewish people the esteem of the nations and enable Israel to fulfill its historical mission: to declare from Jerusalem—from Zion—God's sovereignty in the world.  


It needs to be emphasized that the first concern of any statesman worthy of the name is national unity.  But that is precisely what the Temple symbolizes for the Jewish people.


Let us recur to Joshua Berman's The Temple, to clarify the Temple's vital significance.


The Temple represents the entire congregation of Israel.  The tribes ascended to Jerusalem, gathered in the Temple courtyard, there to encounter God.  Berman cites Psalm 122:


A song of ascents, of David:


"I rejoiced when they said to me,

'We are going to the house of the Lord.'

Our feet stood inside your gates, O Jerusalem.

Jerusalem built up, a city knit together,

To which tribes would make pilgrimage,

 The tribes of the Lord—as was enjoined upon Israel—

 To praise the Name of the Lord."


From Jerusalem the Priests and Levites went out across the land and taught the laws and precepts of the Torah.  Not only the Temple but also "the city of Jerusalem was considered the source of authoritative values."  Isaiah (2:4) declares: "For instruction shall come forth from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem." 


Berman asks: "What does Jerusalem mean for us today?"  He answers: "All of the dimensions that animated and invigorated the spiritual meaning of Jerusalem for the psalmist centuries ago, have returned to animate her—if on a diminished scale—again today, two thousand years later.  We await the reinstatement of the Davidic king, but we can already see in Jerusalem today the seat of a sovereign Jewish government…."


"We have no formal guild of Priests and Levites who bring the word of God out from Zion, but Jerusalem is today the world capital of Jewish learning of all forms.  We do not fulfill the halakhic requirement of gathering as a nation on the pilgrimage of the festivals in the Temple courtyard, yet Jews from all over the world flock to Jerusalem and to the Western Wall on each of these occasions.  Jerusalem today stands as a symbol of the unity of the Jewish people as the largest Jewish city in the world, and the point to which all Jews look as the center of the Jewish world."


"The rebuilding of the Temple," says Berman, "needs to be seen as the pinnacle of a process that is measured in collective and national terms…. Zionism, from a religious perspective, ought to be perceived as a movement dedicated to building a nation around the highest ideals of the Zion of old—around a city that stands as a symbol of Jewish sovereignty on the land, justice, the wisdom of the Torah, Jewish unity, and the opportunity for collective encounter between the Almighty and His people, Israel."




The nations are conspiring to wrest Jerusalem from the Jewish people.  Islam knows it can never conquer the world so long as Jerusalem is in the hands of the Jews.  Jerusalem, the City of Truth, reveals Islam as false, a fabrication of men.  This is why it's absurd for Israel to engage in negotiations with Muslims—as if the Truth is negotiable.  


The conflict between Israel and Islam is the final conflict of mankind, and this conflict centers on Jerusalem and the Temple Mount.  It is not merely a conflict between freedom and tyranny, but between Truth and Falsehood, between the God of Israel and the false god of Islam.  The failure to recognize the theological nature of this conflict— and that Human Reason itself and Human Dignity are at stake in this conflict—is precisely what is driving the democratic nations insane, as Melanie Phillips shows in her book The World Turned Upside Down.


Know, therefore, that if Islam were to gain possession of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount, the Dark Ages would descend upon mankind.  The world's economy would shut down completely.   Hundreds of millions of human beings would perish of hunger, disease, and global bloodshed. 


Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, that it remain in Jewish hands.

Rebuilding the Temple in 5770!  In my opinion, 2 individuals, Rabbi Richman and Prof. Paul Eidelberg who really mean it when they say "Sheyibaneh Beit Hamikdash Bimheira Beyameinu Amen".  No lip service here!

Fwd: THE TEMPLE MOUNT: PART I -WOW Perfect for Tisha B'Av 5770 from Dr. Paul Eidelberg

The Temple Mount: Part I


Prof. Paul Eidelberg


1.  We need to publicize the idea that Jewish control of Israel's holiest site, the Temple Mount, the Har HaBayit, on which stood the Beit HaMikdash, is a precondition of uncontested Jewish control of an undivided Jerusalem and the restoration of Jewish national honor.  Once Jews maintain unequivocal control of the Temple Mount, the United States will move its embassy to Jerusalem—which will produce a shock wave across the world.


2.  Conversely, so long as the Muslim Authority (the Wakf) controls and desecrates the Temple Mount, the nations will despise Israel and kowtow to the Arab-Islamic world.  Muslim desecration of the Temple Mount not only exposes Jewish weakness, but increases Muslim arrogance and even incites Islamic violence everywhere.


3.  Jewish development of the Temple Mount would not only be the pinnacle of Jewish restoration of Jerusalem; it would also inflict a tremendous blow on the ambitions of Muslims who regard Jerusalem is the key to their global ambitions.


4. The Wakf has long been violating the Law of Antiquities and the Law of Planning. The Muslims are erasing all historical evidence of Jewish presence on the Temple Mount.  The government knows this and has cravenly said they have no intention of interfering.  


5. Of course, exclusive Jewish control of the Temple Mount is linked to Jewish control of Judea and Samaria.  (But see below, point 13.)


6. To show that the Temple Mount is the key to the world-historical function of the Jewish people prescribed in the Tenach, I shall now quote various passages from Joshua Berman's book, The Temple


7.  The Temple, he writes, represents "the spiritual center of the country.  Here, at the site where God's presence is most immanent, the representatives of the Jewish people execute commandments and rites that symbolize the service of the nation as a whole."


8. It should also be noted that any non-Jew, so long as he adheres to the Seven Noahide Laws of Universal Morality, can bring certain "sacrifices" to the Temple.


9. The Temple—"a house for God's Name"— symbolizes "a public declaration of God's sovereignty.  The ambition of declaring God's sovereignty in the world, which was initiated by Abraham, is the calling of the Jewish people."          


10. Berman goes on to say:  "God's acclaim in the world is a direct function of how Israel is perceived [by the nations]."  Israel must become a great country.  "A great country should possess political stability at home and should be at peace with its neighbors.  It should possess a strong economy and should be home to a culture that boasts strong [moral and intellectual] virtues."   Israel did not become such a nation until the reign of King David, and it was left to his son Solomon to build the (first) Temple.  All nations then flocked to Jerusalem, which was recognized not only as the City of Peace but the City of Truth.


11. "The function of the Temple as a symbol for God's acclaim in the world reaches its apex with the visit of the queen of Sheba to Solomon's court"—Solomon, the wisest of kings.  Ponder, therefore, these verses of Isaiah 2:1-3:  "And many nations will go and cry, 'Let us go up the to mountain of God's house, to the house of the Lord of Jacob, and we will learn from His ways and walk in His paths, for out of Zion goes forth the Torah and the word of God from Jerusalem.'"


12. Now let us consider Rabbi Chaim Richman's essay, "A Third Jewish Temple" (May 18, 2000), where he says: "People assume those who are interested in the Temple are radical elements opposed to peace."  Alluding to the era of King Solomon, Rabbi Richman points out that the Temple Mount represents "the hallmark of the greatest era known to man.... This place has been sanctified by God from the beginning of time.... Here Jacob laid his head. Here Abraham tried to sacrifice Isaac.... Of the 613 commandments in the Torah, 113 of them depend on the existence of a Jewish Temple. We have not received a cancellation order for any of the commandments issued at Mount Sinai."

13.  Public opinion must therefore be educated about the Temple, about its significance in Judaism.  Obviously, the present government will not do this.  It does not really represent the Jewish people.  At least 25% of Israel's Jewish population is religious, and at least 50% is traditional.  The Jewish people were not consulted when, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, without Knesset or public discussion, endorsed a Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria, Israel's heartland.   There is no reason to believe, therefore, that this orator with a golden tongue and clay feet will stand firm on the issue of Jerusalem and the Har HaBayit


Hence, a network of cells across the nation must be established by Jewish youth and venerable rabbis to vigorously oppose the surrender of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. Preliminary weekly demonstrations for this purpose are necessary, led by youth and venerable rabbis.  Denounce Netanyahu's mendacious policy of "reciprocity," which is an insult to your intelligence as well as to your love and fidelity to the Holy Land on which alone you can endure and flourish as the People of God.


(To be continued)
