Fwd: Middle East and Terrorism: An Interview: The Code of Ethical Warfare of the IDF


To the Jewish Press Staff, amv"sh

Moadim LeSimcha!

In light of last weeks Jewish Press front page news of JTA, and "Anonymous" comment on defending the front page news article as  "middle of the road reporting",  rather than being a mouthpiece for IDF's  new policies,  I would like you to read the following  posts that paint the IDF in a less positive light. . I suspect that the Jewish Press considers  ARUTZ7 as "propaganda" and will therefore  not report these items  or report it in a censored manner while sticking purely to the "facts". Unfortunately It takes a terror attack on the level of the Fogel Massacre to present Arutz7 or another right winger on the front page of the Jewish Press and  even then some of the facts might be censored by JTA or presented as "claims of the right wing Settlers" rather than as facts.  .It is not only the Jewish Press that fails to understand that a media war is enabling our enemies to win the War on the Ground against pious Breslov Jews who want to daven in Kever Yosef  simply because it is our Land and we should be able to do so freely w/o fear of our enemies in our Land.

To all my readers, please write the Jewish Press editors above and voice your opposition to using JTA a mouthpiece for a leftist agenda on their front page.  While the Jewish Press considers this "middle of the road reporting"many consider JTA  reporting as a mouthpiece for "Peace Now".

1. Palestinian Authority Police Kill Israeli near Joseph's Tomb

by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

Palestinian Authority police Sunday morning shot and killed one Israeli and wounded four others after they prayed at Joseph's Tomb (Kever Yosef) around 6 a.m. Sunday (11 p.m. Saturday night EDT). The murder victim (pictured below) was identified as 24-year-old Ben Yosef Livnat, a nephew of Likud Minister Limor Livnat and father of four children.

Arabs attacked the funeral procession with rocks as it proceeded from his childhood home of Elon Moreh to Jerusalem, where he lived with his wife and four children. At least one car windshield was broken in the rock attacks, but no one was injured. People from Elon Moreh stood by the highway in dozens of cars as the funeral procession passed.

One of the three who were wounded in the shooting attack is in serious condition, and Army helicopters evacuated the injured to a hospital for emergency care. A group of 15 worshippers from the Breslov Chassidic sect had driven to the site and were returning when they were gunned down by Palestinian Authority police in a jeep.

The PA security forces continued to fire at the cars as they fled.

The IDF hurriedly issued a statement that the trip to Kever Yosef was not coordinated with Israeli security forces, and military spokesmen referred to the murder as an "incident" and not an attack.

Kever Yosef is a Jewish holy site that was supposed to be under Israeli control and open to worshippers as stated in previous agreements. However, the government has surrendered the area to Palestinian Authority control, and local Arabs have desecrated it several times.

The Breslov group was known to Palestinian Authority authorities as people who frequently prayed at Kever Yosef without any other intentions, according to Gershon Mesika, chairman of the Shomron (Samaria) Regional Council. He called the shooting attack a "massacre at close range."

National Union Knesset Member Dr. Michael Ben-Ari indirectly blamed the American government for having "trained and armed the enemy army that is called the 'Palestinian Authority police' and is directly responsible for the murder at Kever Yosef."

He called on the Israeli government to restore the Od Yosef Chai Yeshiva to Kever Yosef and to confiscate weapons from the Palestinian Authority 

The attack on the morning before the last day of the Passover holiday comes less than a month after the savage stabbings of Rabbi Udi Fogel, his wife Ruthie and three of their six young children, including a three-month-old baby, in community of Itamar, also located in Samaria.

Residents of Judea and Samaria frequently have warned that the removal of roadblocks and checkpoints in the area would make it easier for Arab terrorists to stage attacks and would encourage PA police to attack Jews. Defense Minister Ehud Barak has argued that the easing of security measures are "goodwill" measures that strengthen PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas's popularity and help him fight terror.

2. Min. Livnat 'Stunned' by Nephew's Murder

by Gil Ronen

Minister of Culture and Sport Limor Livnat expressed her shock Sunday at the murder of her nephew, Ben-Yosef Livnat, at the Tomb of Joseph in Shechem.

A formal announcement issued by the minister's bureau said that "Minister Limor Livnat is stunned by the murderous terror attack that killed her nephew, Ben-Yosef Livnat z"l, at Joseph's Tomb this morning."

"A young man whose sole purpose on the eve of the second Pesach holiday was to pray, was vilely murdered in cold blood, and left behind a wife and four orphans," she stated.

Ben-Yosef Livnat's funeral began at about 11:00 A.M., proceeding from Elon Moreh in Samaria toward the To'eh BaSadeh meit midrash (study hall) and from there to the Shamgar funeral home in Jerusalem. Livnat was to be buried at the Mount of Olives Cemetery.





3. PA Arabs Celebrate Murder by Desecrating Joseph's Tomb

by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

Palestinian Authority Arabs set fire to Kever Yosef near Shechem Sunday morning several hours after PA policemen gunned down Jewish worshippers, killing one of them. Eyewitnesses saw smoke billowing over the tomb, which Arabs have frequently desecrated in the past.

The murder victim, 24-year-old Ben Yosef Chai, a nephew of Likud Minister Limor Livnat, was buried Sunday afternoon, several hours before the beginning of the last day of the seven-day Passover holiday Sunday evening.

PA police killed Livnat and wounded four others by opening fire on their cars after they prayed at Kever Yosef and were returning home.  

Defense Minister Ehud Barak condemned the murder and said that the lack of coordination did not justify the Palestinian Authority police attack. He demanded that the PA investigate the shooting. Pictured is a bullethole in one of the vehicles targeted by the PA.

Many coalition Knesset Members are up in arms over the PA police attack. Cabinet Science minister, MK Prof. Rabbi Daniel Hershkowitz, chairman of the Jewish Home party that is part of the coalition, said the attack "unmasked the PA's true face" and called for the return of the IDF to the holy site, where previous agreements guaranteed Israel control and the freedom of worship to Jews.

Israel since has surrendered Kever Yosef to the PA. 

National Union chairman MK Yaakov Katz called on Israelis to remember that it was Israel that first armed the PA with rifles as part of the ill-fated Oslo Accords, signed in 1993. Livnat's name is added to "the long list of 1,500 Jews who have been slaughtered by PA weapons," MK Katz added.

The Shomron (Samaria) Residents Committee stated, "The murder this morning at Joseph's Tomb illustrates the danger of relying on the Palestinian police. Every Palestinian policeman is a potential terrorist whose hatred of Jews" is always present.

Likud MK Ze'ev Elkin and National Union MK Aryeh Eldad said, "There can be no room for any concession on the need for total control and freedom of action for the IDF in all regions of Judea and Samaria."

The Human Rights Organization of Judea and Samaria declared that the murder provides further proof that contradicts a recent report that the Palestinian Authority is ready to become an independent country.

4. PA Spokesman: Settlers Are not Normal People

by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

Jewish settlers in Israel "are not normal people" and therefore there is no need to apologize for the murder of a Jew who prayed at Kever Yosef (Joseph's Tomb) Sunday morning, according to Palestinian Authority security forces' spokesman General Adnan Damiri.

He also claimed the victims of Kever Yosef attack may have been armed.

In an unusually provocative interview with Voice of Israel government radio, he said he could not confirm or deny eyewitness reports that Palestinian Authority policemen shot at five Jews who were on their way home from praying at Kever Yosef (Joseph's Tomb) early Sunday morning.

"We have not said they were or were not" PA policemen, Damiri said, contradicting all reports in both Arab and Israeli media, where the attackers were identified as PA policemen.

Asked if the PA will apologize for the murder of Ben Yosef Livnat, he answered, "You know that settlers are not normal people. Every day, they shoot at innocent Arabs." This, of course, is a blatant untruth, as the news anchor realized.

News anchor Estie Peres, who may agree with the usual Voice of Israel's criticism of Jewish presence in most of Judea and Samaria, responded that  she could not agree with his statement that "settlers are not normal" and asked Damiri if there was justification in shooting at people who had been praying and were on their way home.

"Maybe they were armed," Damiri responded.

Further questioned if the PA will "make peace with settlers," he declared, "There is no room in the Palestinian Authority for settlers."

The Bethlehem-based Ma'an news agency turned the story around and told its readers that "dozens of armed ultra-Orthodox settlers entered the Joseph's Tomb site…, pulled out their own guns and pointed them toward Palestinian officers. " This is the same agency that claimed that the Fogel family of Itamar were killed by a Thai worker, well knowing that the town of Itamar allows employment of Jewish workers only.

There was no indication from Israeli authorities that the worshippers were armed.

5. IDF Judea and Samaria Cmdr. Regrets but Does Not Condemn Killing

by Gil Ronen

The Commander of the Judea and Samaria Division, Brig. Gen. Nitzan Alon, addressed this morning's shootings of Israeli worshippers near Joseph's Tomb in Shechem by Palestinian Authority security forces without any noticeable emotion, and did not say one word blaming the PA for murdering an unbillegerent  Israeli citizen at close range.

The IDF statement issued together with Brig.-Gen. Alon's short video statement said: "The shooting killed one Israeli, Ben Yosef Livnat, and wounded four others. The IDF expresses its condolences to the Livnat family."

"Visits to Joseph's Tomb must be coordinated in advance so that Israeli security forces may provide proper arrangements for the safety of worshippers. Arriving at the Tomb independently without prior coordination is extremely dangerous."

INN Editor comments: Does this mean that the cold blooded murder of a man going to pray was justified? Is it par for the course when the perpetrators are Arabs? One could almost infer that from the lack of any condemnation of the murderers on the part of Gen. Alon. 

The need for coordination is a security measure aimed at Israelis. The act of murder is a barbaric deed in itself whether or not it was made easier by lack of coordination with the IDF. (R.S. INN editor).

Goldstone, International Law, Jewish Press, Once again your front page cover puts dangerous new IDF Policy changes in positive light


Unfortunately I am once again angered that  the Jewish Press uses their Front Page to report  acceptably on  a new IDF policy that potentially endangers IDF Soldiers and Israeli lives.

Failure of Jewish Media to put things in a proper Torah perspective indirectly aids and empowers  the enemies of Israel.

 I am referring to the new IDF Policy Changes as a result of the Goldstone Fallout.  Rather than expose the double standard of the use of International Law  JTA tells half the story leaving out the side that conclusively shows that such a new IDF policy can in fact endanger Israeli Soldiers and Israeli civilians.

Unfortunately this is the pattern of JTA reporting and the Jewish Press should reconsider using them as a reliable and  kosher news source typically gracing the Jewish Press on their front cover.  The Jewish Press as well as all the Jewish Print Media who puts Torah before everything else  would do well to consult with Daas Torah  as per whether such IDF decisions is consistent with how the Torah would advise a Jewish army defending the residents of Israel when the Palestinians use their civilians as human shields.  The Torah viewpoint must be investigated, heard and not suppressed!

Please report on the likely endangerment of IDF Soldier due to these new policy changes as per what happened in Jenin where many IDF soldier were killed in urban warfare in an attempt to spare Palestinian civilian casualties.   While there is positive things to say about using accurate weapons it must not be done at the expense of the lives of the Israel Soldier.

Please note  that in the Jenin battle,  the international media did not recognize or appreciate  the self sacrificing efforts to save Palestinian civilian lives.  That was a perfect example but not the only one of how IDF military operations are dictated by media rather than military considerations and as a consequence suffered very heavy losses.

 Not only were the efforts not appreciated in international media it received the exact opposite desired  PR reaction in that Israel was accused of War Crimes and of staging a  progrom against the civilian Palestinian population.  These accusations were based on lies and distortions and falsehoods...and  I personally knew Gedalia  a soldier who died in combat in that useless urban battle in Jenin and know of the pain and sorrow of his family...  This should surely cause one to reflect as per whether these new guidelines of the IDF is indeed one that is consistent with Torah.

But not only the lives of IDF soldiers and Israeli residents are endangered by fighting a war based on PR. Israel is endangering the world by setting a precedent of weakness in the fight against such evil  The world takes their cue from how Israel responds.    Being compassionate to the cruel results in being cruel to the compassionate.

 NATO forces in Libya face these same moral dilemmas.  Military targets are placed in civilian populations zones who serve as human shields and NATO forces retreat. How compassionate is this to the potential victims of  these rockets allowed to be left in place ready to be fired on the civilian populations of  babies, children and elderly?

Please take your reporting from Kosher sources such as Doris Wise Montrose and the Children of Jewish Holocaust Survivors working to ensure that Never Again remains more than a mere slogan,  Please put only Kosher News sources, those that are proud to  defend our rights to defend our Land dictated by Torah Shebichtav and Torah SheBaal Peh , the written and oral Torah Law on your Front Page.   Please don't empower those (including  the Gov't of Israel and the IDF who hold that Torah is secondary to secular state laws of IDF engagement.  These new IDF guidelines implicitly suggest guilt of war crimes by their determination to "rectify wrongdoing" in the face of international condemnation. It seems pretty clear to me that the IDF now calls for new policies that potentially stops to  protect our own Jewish military and  civilian population in order to defend the civilian population of our enemies who unfortunately are  being used by cowards as human shields..

Please turn a blind eye to the hostile international media waiting to pounce on Israel whenever she shows strength to defend the rights of our Land and our people.   Who if not  the Jewish Media, will speak out the Truth of Torah?

Sincerely, Robin Ticker

Goldstone, International Law, and the Coming Crisis in September

A presentation by three distinguished lawyers, historians, and scholars

Avi Bell
J.J. Surbeck
Rick Richman


Thursday, April 28 - 7 p.m.
Luxe Hotel Sunset
11461 Sunset Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA  90049

Avi Bell participated in a debate on the Goldstone Report at Stanford Law School on March 28 with Justice Richard Goldstone and others, three days before Justice Goldstone published his now-famous recantation in the Washington Post. The Goldstone Recantation demonstrates that the truth about international law and the Arab-Israeli conflict, although slow to get its boots on, can be used as an effective defense by those who are knowledgeable in it.  

International law is usually considered only when it can be played against Israel and is generally ignored when it is in fact in Israel's favor or would condemn the Palestinians. We have been dealing with the progressive institutionalization of a double standard. J.J. Surbeck will give examples of the problem and where it is leading the world community if not addressed in time.

In advance of the coming September meeting of the UN General Assembly, where opponents of Israel plan to seek a unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state with non-negotiated borders, Rick Richman will analyze the legality and the political implications of such an attempt. 


Professor Avi Bell holds multiple degrees from Harvard and the University of Chicago, clerked for the Supreme Court of Israel, and has taught courses on the laws of war and the legal aspects of the Arab-Israeli conflict.  He is a professor at Bar Ilan University Faculty of Law as well as the University of San Diego Law School.

J.J. Surbeck is a Swiss-educated attorney who worked for 16 years for the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), which many have called the "Guardian of the Geneva Conventions." He has lectured and taught widely on the Geneva Conventions and their Additional Protocols, also called International Humanitarian Law. He is currently Executive Director of T.E.A.M. (Training and Education About the Middle East), a non-profit organization, and is based in San Diego.

Rick Richman is a graduate of Harvard College and NYU Law School. His articles have appeared in American Thinker, Commentary, the Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles, the Jewish Press, Pajamas Media, and the New York Sun. He blogs at Contentions and edits Jewish Current Issues.

Fwd terror victim, Daniel Viflic Beit Shemesh - Family in need of funds.

Please send this email out to the congregation-- I know the organiztation collecting the funds. They are based in my neighborhood and are very honest and caringm, so the money will go right to the family in need--Tizkeh L'mitzvot!

The victim of last week's utterly evil missile attack on a
school bus, is
local Bet Shemesh/RBS resident Daniel Viflic, aged 16.

Daniel is in critical condition - and his family asks all of
us to daven for
his survival and recuperation (Raphael Daniel Arieh ben
Tamar). The coming
hours are extremely important.

Lema'an Achai, the RBS Chesed Organization, is coordinating
all efforts to
help the family, shoulder to shoulder with our colleagues
at "One Family"
(who specialise in assisting Terror Victims) and "Paamonim"
(who specialise
in financial and small business structuring).

* How You Can Help *

The Viflic family run a small catering business, and right
now (coming up to
Pessach) was planned to be their peak season.

Due to the horrific circumstances the Viflic's are now
suffering, the
business will be non-existent during this period.
Unfortunately, there is no
cash reserve to fall back on.

In order to float the business and the family until after
Pessach, $10,000
is immediately needed.

This is a definite and immediate need. Depending on Daniel's
progress, there
will likely be other financial impact also.

A special Emergency Fund has therefore been established for
the Viflics, by
Lema'an Achai.


a. *After* you have given your regular kimche depischa/maot
chitim donation,
please ALSO donate generously to the "Terror Victim Fund -

Operation AIT LAASOT - Women in Green - stopping Land Grab in Judea and Samaria, HONEINIi - Defending Jewish Rights of Self Defense


Chashuva Rabbonim, Media and Friends who Love Eretz Yisroel, amv"sh

Please acknowledge, promote organizations, communities and individuals who ACT in ways that build up the Land of Israel and prevent further terror attacks against our people in Judea and Samaria and the rest of Israel.  These honored organizations include Women in Green, Honenu, Havat Gilat  , the Yishuv of Itamar  and MattotArim and many others as well.

Sent today by Women In Green:



Women for Israel's Tomorrow (Women in Green) and Garin Netzer protest strongly against the outrageous action performed this morning by the Civil Administration in Sussya when they destroyed Moishele Deutsh's fields and  uprooted 3300  five year old trees.


The State is attacking its loving sons.


Anyone who searches the internet and reads about the different anti-Israeli organizations, like JAI, who help the Arabs , understands that a war on the land is being waged by the Arabs-- a tree intifada. The Arabs understand that the battle will be won on the land and not on meaningless papers of "peace".


We call upon the Civil Administration to return to its original purpose: safeguarding the land of Israel and preventing the Arabs from taking over.


Yehudit Katsover 0507161818  Nadia Matar 0505500834

From Honenu:

If you killed in self defense, would you be afraid to call the police

You would if you lived in Israel and you were a Jew and your attacker was an Arab.

At the end of January, a Jew walking in the Har Bracha region was attacked. Two Arabs from the village of Arak Burin appear in a video clip distributed by the IDF spokesman, where they can be seen threatening the Jew with rocks in their hands. Since he had no alternative, and since his life was clearly in danger, the victim fired his pistol and killed one of the attackers. See the incident caught on video.

Shortly thereafter, Judea and Samaria Division detectives began arresting and detaining residents of Samaria on suspicion of committing the act. The sole prima facie evidence connecting them to the incident is the type of weapon that they are licensed to hold, a pistol made by Glock. It need hardly be said that numerous such weapons have been licensed throughout the country.

In all cases the arrestees were released, but the Police confiscated their weapons for examination. It should be noted that these arrests occur predawn in their homes as if they were escaped criminals. The latest occurring in Itamar to the son of former IDF Chief Rabbi Avichai Ronsky, whose family was terrified thinking that the police were terrorists attempting to again murder in that community.

Even though the Police declared that this was a case of self defense the person who fired decided not to inform the Police of the incident. One could correctly assume that this is due to the arbitrary conduct of the Police and the courts in such cases. Many Jews who have been attacked are arrested and forced to remain in detention for long periods of time.

The person who fired apparently waited to hear of the arrest and imprisonment of the attackers. When no one was arrested he realized that the Police was not interested in true justice.

Advocate Adi Keidar from Honenu said of the arrest: "The conduct of the police is very strange. The Police announced that this was clearly a case of permitted use of a weapon for self defense. It is therefore unclear why the Police decided to investigate the Jews and once again ignore the criminal acts of the Arabs."

Honenu's legal defense team works non stop to ensure true justice.
There were over 470 new cases in the last 6 months.
This Passover holiday donate generously to provide FREEDOM for others.
Make Israel a better place.

P.S. Shalom Pollack, our representative, will be in the NY area from May 10 – 31 on a speaking tour. Please contact us if you can help with setting up speaking engagements or wish to be notified of his schedule.

The following link was sent to me today by Susie Dym of Mattot Arim

One-Third of PA Arabs Support Massacre of Fogels - pls distribute (press etc.). thanks. s

Chashuva Askanim,

Please engage in some personal accounting. Have you sought out these courageous Jews and Organizations knowing that enemies are surrounding them or have you turned them away from your door when they approached you?  Perhaps you have decided that there is nothing they or you can personally do that will make any difference in Yehuda and the Shomron.  Have you just given up? 

The civil rights of the residents of Yehuda and Shomron are hefker and so is their private property and belongings.  Why have we left them to fight for their homes and their security on their own.  Do we not realize that Judea and Samaria is the first stop, of terror,  on the way to us chas vechalila?

The State of Israel is working against them as per pressures of the Obama Administration.  Our American tax money is going in hundreds of millions, perhaps billions to support the PA and other terror fronts.   

Will these G-d fearing Jews not be featured in your papers or on the air or in your talks unless there is some horrific terror attack? What will it take to make their voices heard?

A personal letter to you from Robin (Faige Rayzel)

Today is 2 Nissan my Hebrew Birthday.  It is my 55th Birthday, 5 and 5 which reminds me of the 10 Luchot Habrit.  To help me celebrate this momentous Birthday, I am asking you to please give me a gift that I will treasure more than anything else in the world. 

Please do something for Yehuda and the Shomron.  Make it prominent.  (You can print that it is in honor of faigerayzel's 55th Birthday if you want but that's not important.) What is important is to put Judea and Samaria and  Jewish Rights to Eretz Yisroel literally on the map.  Emphasize our Right to Defend Ourselves on Eretz HaKodesh, Our H-ly soil.  State this  proudly  on your headline, your front pages, in your opening remarks, and/or in your Drasha in shul.

 Arab attacks do not happen in a vacuum. 

 Will what you just read sent by Women in Green and Honenu get printed in mainstream Jewish Media or get prominent space or  air time?

 Or will your space and time and promotion be  designated to organizations and individuals who excel at  memorializing  Jewish victims of Arab Terror and are expert about Egypt, Libya and Iran.  These voices are passive when the warning lights are on and they unfortunately do not sound the alarm for preventive measures to save Jewish Lives in Judea and Samaria and by domino effect save lives in the entire Israel and the world.

The Gov't of the State of Israel is turning a blind eye to Arab vandalism and Arab aggression and provocation.  Worse, it is
prosecuting those Jewish settlers  that have been attacked  and turn the tables on them so that they are forced at great expense to defend their actions as if they were criminal. 

Isn't it  a heavenly act of  justice that Goldstone a Jew,  is behind a report of the UN criminalizing the State of  Israel for acting in Self Defense.  Goldstone seemed almost on the verge of retracting this libelous Goldstone report and then didn't.  Perhaps what just  happened in Sussia as reported by Yehudit Katzover and Nadia Matar of Women in Green or what was reported by Honenu triggered something in Goldstone's brain to retract  only halfheartedly.  Perhaps in Heavenly Court, The State of Israel needs to be a lot more deserving  in order to obtain a full retraction from Goldstone. After all aren't they guilty of acting similarly, accusing and treating the Jewish settlers in Judea and Samaria, the Galil and the Negev who act in Self Defense as criminals? 

The Right of Self Defense and the Freedom to Bear Arms is embedded in the  Bill of Rights of the American Constitution.

The underlying basis for these Bill of Rights is that we are not trespassers or threatening the real owners and we have full rights to be on the Land.

Arabs distort truth and create lies to fabricate the idea that  Arabs are victims of the Israeli "Occupation". They claim that we stole the Land from them.   This legitimizes their "armed struggle" against Jews and makes light of  the heinous crimes  of their  "armed struggle" in the leftist Global Media.

Therefore, to counter this identity theft by the Arabs, and land theft by Arabs, literally and in principle,  Israel must justify their rights to settle Judea and Samaria based on our Biblical and Historical Rights.

After all, if we are "Occupiers" as Obama and the Global Community proclaim, then the armed struggle of the "Palestinian People" is justified and slaughtering innocent babies in their sleep is not portrayed as an act of terror.

May we all be zocheh to be part of the Return of Am Yisroel to Eretz Yisroel and bring Moshiach Tzidkeinu Bimheira Beyameinu Amein so that we will be able to serve Hashem in the Beit Hamikdash and throughout the world, as per His desire and liking...

Operation AIT LAASOT- Twinning with Yehuda andShomron Partnering with Judea and Samaria


Dear Rabbonim, Media, Organizations and individuals who are Friends of Eretz Yisroel Hashleima, amv"sh

Will we merely memorialize the dead, the barbaric murders, the massacres?

the dead the barbarity and the massacres?

Introducing Operation AIT LAASOT.   We are individuals (initiators, Robin Ticker and Shmuel Koenig) who spend our days and nights doing what we can to wake up, inspire, cajole and plead and cry for our precious brothers and sisters,  the Nation of Israel to be actively part of Yishuv Haaretz.  Here in Brooklyn, the murders touched a sensitive bone.  But is the pain acute enough to turn sentiment into action?  How much pain does it require Chas VeChalila. We do not want to find out!  

We can preempt and prevent what happened in Itamar.  The tragedies COULD have been prevented by us had we gotten involved sooner and not supported the "peace initiatives" by expressing outrage when property is stolen or vandalized by Arabs or victims of Arab aggression are turned into the aggressors and arrested rather catching the perpetrators and prosecuting them.  The Arabs have become brazen as to attack babies and  children on a Friday night without fear of reprisal.  Quite the opposite, they look forward to the reward they will receive from those that support terror for these heinous acts. To Build and expand is the answer.

We can stop future tragedies chas vechalila BUT NOT MERELY BY MEMORIALIZING.

Operation AIT LAASOT is a campaign to encourage every Jew to partner in whatever capacity with building Judea and Samaria.  By your efforts you are an automatic member of AIT LAASOT.  WE choose the Best and most useful way to both Memorialize and Prevent future tragedies.

We want shuls to partner with shuls, schools with schools, classes with classes, families with families, or a shul with a family or a group of people with a business, or a business with a business.  The point is to be Mezakeh the Rabbim, make ALL Jews worthy of Yishuv  Eretz Yisroel. Let us partner en masse with the pioneers, brave, courageous and sacrificing families and individuals that already live and invested their whole lives in Yishuv Haaretz based on Torah and Mitzvoth in Judea and Samaria and all of Eretz Yisroel. 

Why specifically Judea and Samaria?  Because they are the ones targeted by all the Nations of the World including the United States.  When there is a Mitzva that has universal opposition, that is davka the Mitzva that we must strengthen.  Because of Areivus, we as a Nation must be worthy of the Land of Israel. When only a minority of Am Yisroel is worthy, collectively as a Nation we are short on merit. Only when the majority is worthy will we merit to overcome our enemies and win the struggle for Eretz Yisroel.  If we somehow show HaKadosh Baruch Hu that we in Chutz LeAretz care, that we desire the Land, that our Tefillot and dreams are meaningful and not empty words, surely we are confident that Hashem will respond positively. 

We have been told by some caring Jews, we must wait for Moshiach.  Surely, Moshiach needs a Kli, some vessel in which to appear.  Otherwise when Moshiach knocks on our door telling us to return to Eretz Yisroel we might turn him away saying that we are waiting for Moshiach to come.  Will we recognize Moshiach when he stares us in the face? 

Our Hishtadlus is the vessel needed by Moshiach  to come and operate.

For starters let us recommend two possibilities for our hishtadlus, our partnering.  Of course, there are many opportunities in Judea and Samaria and we will be more than happy to assist you to find the venue that touches your heart and soul.  We are connected to many organizations and Yeshivoth and businesses that help the Yesha communities.

1. URGENT! Chavat Gilad.  A privately owned farm in the Shomron currently without electricity housing 27 families and Yeshiva students.  Right before the Itamar massacre following a campaign to raise funds for fuel for their generator, they were attacked 4:30 am by Israeli police with plastic bullets for the crime of "illegal" building.  The police demolished a home and some structures.

This community relies on an electric generator because the Gov't of Israel refuses to provide the infrastructure.  (Please note that the gov't however has no problem with supplying power to our enemies in Gaza who attack Sderot, Ashdod and Beer Sheva).

Chavat Gilad is  "illegal" as per the demands of the International Community who do not have our best interest at heart.

Their electric generator is extremely expensive to run and the community runs out of funds for fuel. 

I am looking for 20 people that would be willing to contribute $100 each to ease the current crises and get them back electricity.  So far I have several contributors. As a long term solution we want to raise money for funding Wind Turbines so that they will not have to rely on contributions of others for their electricity but will have a clean alternative affordable energy source that will be a model for others as well. Our goal is to be Komimyut LeArtzeinu. 

You can send them money directly through paypal or by check .  (it would give us chizuk if you email us the details of your contribution).   In Brooklyn, if there are any questions feel free to call 718-510-2364 or  718-375-7056.  Encourage pooling with others.  If you can think of a person that would like to contribute, spread the word.

Donations for Chavat Gilad can be made online via paypal at this link. Then share the Nachas of your contribution with others.

2. TIMELY suggestion: This week's Parshat Shemini has references to the Cohen Gadol Itamar the son of Aharon HaKohen. The community Itamar in the Shomron is named after him. I believe the Kever of Itamar is located in this location.

Itamar of the Shomron, the place of the recent brutal massacre of the Fogel family hy"d.  The Mayor of Itamar Moshe Goldsmith and his wonderful wife Leah are in New York.  They will be in Brooklyn, speaking in the Kingsway Jewish Center 2810 Nostrand Ave. on Sunday April 3rd at 8:pm Beezrat Hashem.   Besides, serious security needs the Yishuv Itamar wants to complete the construction of a beautiful Beit Knesset in time of the first Yahrzeit of the Fogel family hy"d.  Rabbi Goldsmith can fill  you in. Go on and contribute via paypal or send a check to Friends of Itamar, 1483 E. 34th Street Brooklyn, NY 11234.  If you have any questions please call 718-338-3822 or 718-375-7056
