Lubavitcher Rebbe: Protest falls squarely on the shoulders of the Rabbis


I am not the typical Lubavitcher. Yet, I sometimes feel like I am conducting a single women campaign, helped by Shmuel Koenig activist and encouraged or discouraged by fellow activists to entreat the Rabbinic Leaders, and the major religious Jewish Organizations and their media to be more proactive in the fight for Judea and Samaria.  What does amaze me is that their responses or rationalizations of not protesting or taking action was foreseen by the Lubavitch Rebbe and he is the one that is providing answers to them.  It is for this reason I ask that the Print and Radio media create a discussion whereby it is politically correct to question the Silence of our Leaders regarding our entitlement to Judea and Samaria and against a PA/Hamas State.     

When we asked Rav Perlow and Rav Shmuel Kamentsky to be more proactive they replied and "Perhaps what we say won't make a difference"  The Rebbe answers that in any case we must protest (see point # 7).  When we asked Yechiel Kalish from Agudah he replied we need first to wait for direction of MKs Litzman in the Agudah party of UTJ.  The Rebbe answers that in point #5. When in 2005 we spoke to Avi Shafran, he said that the Rabbanim feel that it is permissible to give away parts of Eretz Yisroel because of Pikuach Nefesh, the Rebbe answers that in point #2. When we asked Agudah for a meeting with David HaIvri they were busy with Dinners and wanted to push it off.  The Rebbe addresses pushing it off in point #3. When Shmuel Koenig calls the Agudah office this past week and there is a Global March to Jerusalem scheduled for this Friday and Migron is slated to be bulldozed he is told to call back at a later date. Again see point #2 and #3. The Rebbe clearly says that one is not allowed to push off matters related to Pikuach Nefesh. Who am I to argue with them but clearly everyone will agree that the Lubavitch Rebbe zt"l was a Gadol Hador, great in Nigle and Nistar, the revealed Torah and the hidden Torah,  and his words should be taken seriously.

These are points of the Lubavitch Rebbe, zt"l

  1. The current situation in Israel is such that the duty to protest falls squarely on the shoulders of the Rabbis. This obligation falls upon all Rabbis who arbitrate practical matters of Jewish law, and especially those Rabbis who have at one time expressed an opinion on this issue, no matter where they are — whether in Israel or in the Diaspora.
  2. The ruling must be explicit and definitive, being the result of exhaustive consultation withpresent military authorities who have actual firsthand knowledge about these issues, and who express their opinions through purely security-oriented considerations, and not political ones.
    In order to save the Rabbis the trouble of researching the issues which are required for a ruling, the Rebbe informs us that he has already investigated the matter, and the conclusions are:
    1. Those involved in military affairs say that surrendering any portion of the West Bank and Gaza, places untold numbers of Jews in danger, G-d forbid.
    2. The past is well known (e.g., Golda Meir not listening to the Israeli Military Intelligence prior to Yom Kippur War).
  3. A ruling must be issued quickly, and a Rabbi must not wait until he is asked about the matter. Rather, he must see to it that the law is publicized everywhere — to the extent that "there will not be a single individual who has not heard of this ruling." This is because regarding these matters, "he who asks (rather than acts) is a spiller of blood, and the one who waits to be asked is contemptible" for not having publicized his opinion.[35]
  4. Similarly, one should publicize the decision of the "Great Assembly" of 1937 [36] which states that "it is forbidden to cede to a non-Jew, even a tiny strip of the Land of Israel." This should be publicised until the entire Jewish people are aware of this ruling.
  5. Every Jew, regardless of where he lives, is connected with every other Jews in the rest of the world. Therefore, according to Jewish law, he must protest any action taken by another Jew which is not in accordance with Jewish Law. Protest is required even if the forbidden action took place a great distance from him — because he is still obligated by the command, "Thou shalt not stand idly by thy brother's blood."
  6. At times the situation is such that there is nothing left to do but to protest. This is a precise indication that our task in this situation is to protest.
  7. The claim that protest will not affect the situation does not absolve any of the Rabbis, no matter where they are, from their obligation to publicize a clear ruling because:
    1. Who knows where we would be if no one were to speak up.
    2. Regarding the mitzvah to admonish one's fellow man, the Talmud says, "even one hundred times," meaning, if one unsuccessfully gave rebuke ninety-nine times, one is bound by Jewish law to engage in rebuke a hundredth time, for it could well be that the hundredth time will be decisive.
    3. The Rabbi must do his job and protest without fear, and without considering the reaction which may follow his ruling (such as being ignored); especially because this is an ongoing matter, which concerns saving Jewish lives.
    4. The obligation not to stand idly by while your brother's blood is being spilled, applies in every situation, even when one is uncertain that his protest will have any effect. Even if the chance that protest will assist is only one thousandth of a chance, or a fraction of that, one is obligated to protest, because this is the law in the Code of Jewish Law.
  8. Even if the majority remain silent, and those protesting are in the minority, nevertheless, the minority is taken into consideration.
  9. The Rabbis who remain silent cause the greatest damage. This is analagous to the Talmudic law concerning seventy Rabbinic judges who rule for or against a certain side, with one judge "abstaining." In such a case, Jewish Law requires the entire trial to be rendered null and void.
  10. The Rebbe's opinion is that were there to be a sustained protest, carried out with the greatest intensity — as the present situation clearly demands — it would eventually succeed, in the near future.

A Call to action from Rabbanim, also youtube for a better understanding of what is happening in Migron - Animated story youtube with English subtitles


Chashuva Rabbanim, amv"sh

This is a letter addressed to Rabbonim, calling the Rabbonim to end the Silence! 

Gush Katif happened.  Nobody would have believed that it would happen yet it did happen! Tehillim rallies were conducted after the fact.  Will we be silent now when there is a court order to destroy Migron or will we prevent it from happening? Will we choose  to avoid political backlash and refrain from saying anything that might be considered politically incorrect and then say Tehillim to "share the pain" after the fact chas veshalom?????

This is not just about Migron.  Statements were made by major Jewish Organizations such as Agudah, OU, Young Israel condemning the recent acts of terror in France. Public statements are not uncommon by these major Jewish Orgnaizations. 

To my Dear Activist List who Love Eretz Yisroel, 

 Let us have a strong letter writing, calling campaign to all these major Jewish Organizations and affiliated Rabbanim, and let them know that Am Yisroel would like to hear loud and clear statements coming from these organizations as per our rightful, Biblical and Historical claim to Eretz Yisroel!  We need to stop the millions of tax payers dollars allocated to support UNRWA and protest the acceptance of "Palestine" into UNESCO.  Will we continue to be silent when Temple Mount, Maarat Hamachpela, Kever Rochel, Kever Yosef are transformed into Palestinian cultural sites?  We call on these major Jewish Organizations with influence and membership numbering collectively in the hundreds of thousands not to disappoint us and address the Chillul Hashem blatantly taking place under our very eyes If you are in the Media please print this call to action for major Religious Jewish Organizations in your news publication or radio spots!

Please watch the following animated youtube. It is very enlightening for understanding the struggle of Migron.  Thanks.

Press Release: Extreme serious developments against Judea and Samaria - Neemanei Eretz Yisroel hold their first conference calling for alternative to Likud


Please read the background material of recent disturbing current events (from Mattot Arim) that clearly illuminates the necessity to find an alternative to Likud.

From Mattot Arim:

Extremely serious developments against Judea and Samaria as radical pro-Palestinian Chief High Court  of Justice Judge Beinish struggles to leave "scorched earth" behind her as she retires. Amazingly:

a. the Supreme Court has just rejected the Government of Israel's policy on 50-family neighborhood of Migron and is insisting that the Government raze the entire community, in August. The date is... the 7th anniversary of the Gush Katif expulsion....

b. The Supreme Court also, a few days ago, outlawed the Jewish community's sole method, practically speaking, for buying land in Judea and Samaria. The method just outlawed by the Supreme Court, developed because a contract, if publicized, showing that an Arab had sold you land, was tantamount to sentencing that Arab to barbaric extra-judicial death as reported here: Therefore, Jews had to discretely  buy land from the many willing Arab sellers, paying the purchase price but not presenting any sale documents to the land registry so as not to expose the Arab seller in any way. The Jews would then cultivate the land for the 10 years mandated by the (just eradicated) law, and then claim 10-year-squatter's rights, as soon as more than 10 years had elapsed. At that time, the Arab seller would hasten to express in front of cameras and microphones, photogenic rage and shock at the land having been "stolen" from him, so as not to be accused of treasonable sale to Jews; however, since the law supported squatters' rights after 10 years, the Arab's "rage and shock" did not nullify the sale.  It is this method which has now been blocked, using a legal tool called Tzav Shimush Mafria. This criminalizes an entire Jewish community of almost 500,000 persons, who will henceforth, barring new legislative remedies on the part of the Knesset, be incapable of buying desparately needed land in any legal way.  

What is needed, as MKs Danny Danon, Zevulon Orlev and Uri Ariel say here:  and here: is fast-track legislation, Pessach or no Pessach, to modify the laws that the Supreme Court is using, or abusing, in time to save Migron and the Jewish farmers in Judea and Samaria in general.

Please SMS to the above ministers and MKs משה כחלון  M. Cachlon 050-6845584
יולי אדלשטיין  Yuli Edelstein 050-3334298
גלעד ארדן  Gilad Erdan  050-5936500 *  
      קרא איוב Ayoub Kara  050-6233617
זאב אלקין  Zeev Elkin 050-4623582;    
  ציפי חוטובלי Z. Hutabeli 050-7423350  *
   *  ישראל כץ 050-6233939 Yisrael Katz
  (Cachlon, Edelstein, Erdan, Kara, Elkin, Hutabeli, Katz) about this.  The above ministers and MKs are all jostling to be elected as chairpersons of various Likud institutions, after Pessach. It is crucial for us, the public, to create in their minds the impression that the public will support them only if they REALLY WORK on the CENTRAL ISSUES of Yehuda and Shomron. Many ministers and MKs -- too many -- are convinced that if they find some money for a new traffic circle or school, they will get your vote. If so, there's no need for them to work really hard on the difficult, central issues which will really save Judea and Samaria, is there?  And they don't. We need to change this. So the SMS we recommend sending to the above addresses, specifically to the candidates who will need votes in a few weeks, is this (Hebrew and English versions):

כמועמד לראשות מוסדות הליכוד, אבקש שתפעל יום ולילה לקידום החוק להסדרת המאחזים ולביטול הצו נגד החקלאים!!

Thank you very much. Your actions are  helping Israel stay away from the 67 borders. Please pass this on.

The Eretz Yisroel Conference: An Unprecedented assault on Our Land Israel! The pro Palestinian Supreme Court is the heart of the nation's cancer

More than five hundred delegates to the Conference of the Land of Israel from all over the country, gathered Monday night at the ZOA House in Tel Aviv, to the first gathering of the Eretz Yisroel Movement and saluted their Representative in the Knesset MK Dr. Michael Ben-Ari. Among the decisions of the conference was to hold primaries among all the Land of Israel Faithful and open negotiations of forming a coalition of  Land of Israel Faithfuls for the upcoming elections as an alternative to Likud. Following the Court's decision to destroy Migron, leaders attacked the Chief Justice Grunis and declared that this Supreme Court was the cancer in the heart of the Nation. The MC of the evening was Shai Gefen. 

Michael Ben Ari, who opened the conference said that the majority justices in the Supreme Court were members of a private closed and racist junta which discriminates between "blood and blood and judgement and judgement". The enlightened  judges of the Supreme Court  do not enforce the law in Rahat, they do not enforce the law in Umm al-Fahm , but are mighty to enforce it against the heroes of Migron.

In points raised,  Ben-Ari called for the residents of Migron to stop negotiations with the government.  He called upon Migron to stop being naive.  He compared the Land of Israel to our mother and one does not make compromises regarding their mother. He impressed upon the delegates the need to  confront the essence of the struggle. In  reference to the political situation in the right camp, Ben Ari  calls for unity in the Orange camp and emphasized that it is very important that all streams go together.  He added that it is no secret that most in the orange camp supports uncompromising struggle and steadfastness on principles.  Even if there are differences between the political parties Bayit Yehudi and Ichud Leumi, most people support the position of no compromise regarding the uprooting of settlements.  He said that the public wants us to connect to the  people, and that we must fight illegal infiltrators, fight our enemies in the Knesset and fight unfair judges such as Grunis, Beinisch, and Gibran. If there is a disagreement he proposed to hold primaries that will decide once and for all what the national camp wants.

Ben Ari suggested that the movement be an alternative to the Likud, and not merely another sectarian movement or the protest of a faction.  "We held the conference in Tel Aviv, not only because I was born there, but because whomever gives away Migron for being "occupied territory", .tomorrow will give away Tel Aviv which was built on Sheikh Munis.

. Leaders of Eretz Yisroel Shalanu, Rabbi Shalom Dov Wolpo and Baruch 
Marzel, attacked the High Court in harsh terms. Rabbi Wolpo attacked the Chief Justice and Supreme Court decision regarding Migron, stating that "the Supreme Court is the cancer in the heart of the nation." Rabbi Wolpo called on all parties to resign from the Netanyahu government so as not to give a hand to the destruction of Migron - Decisions of the High Court and Netanyahu government will lead to civil war and to this we do not join hands! Rabbi Wolpo called on all the Land of Israel Faithful Movement supporters to unite under the clear message of loyalty to Israel

Baruch Marzel, also attacked the Supreme Court and said: I warned in 
advance, Grunis and Beinisch are both not Kosher and are more dangerous than Iran, as they are destroying us from within.

  MK Aryeh Eldad honored the convention with his presence.  He said especially in light of recent calls for the establishment of another religious party for the Nationalist camp,  here in this conference, there is a call to unite all true nationalists of the Land of Israel, the patriots who believe that the Land of Israel belongs to the people of Israel! Eldad also called to hold primaries for the Right camp as an alternative to the Likud.

 Rabbi Israel Ariel said that the public message should be made very clear that the Land of Israel only belongs to Israel. 
Prof. Israel Hanukoglu was Netanyahu's adviser, called for everyone to 
unite around the leadership of Michael Ben Ari, and lead to the Land of Israel Faithful to our victory. 
 The Conference was addressed by many delegates from across the country.
Among the decisions made at the conference was to prepare for elections to the Knesset,  to open negotiations with representatives of the various parties to form a joint list, while calling for early elections
During the conference there were blessings of Rabbi Dov Lior of Kiryat Arba and Rabbi Yaakov Yosef.

Home singer Ariel Zilber jazzed the crowd and swept the conference delegates.

איש לרעהו יאמר חזק More Excellent Gush Katif Museum News Coverage 5TJT, Iron Dome drawbacks Chabad4Israel, Tazpit, Amotz Eyal Wow's audience in Brooklyn at ZMEC meeting, NIF which supports BDS marching in Israel Day Parade???,


Please read the following posts and don't forget to contribute Kimche D'Pischa for Yesha and to  the Gush Katif Museum who also does Kimche D'Pischa, organized by the Director of the Museum Shlomo Wasserteil for the displaced Gush Katif people. 

  • Supporters Gather at Gush Katif Museum Dinner - 5TJT - another great article about the Dinner. Thank you Editor Larry Gordon a true friend of Israel and Judea and Samaria!
  • Missiles for Peace - OP Ed by Raanan Isseroff, Gush Katif Museum Representative  (see attachment for footnotes to article). A must read!  Iron Dome is not the solution LeChatchila.  Only Bedieved.
  • Tazpit  Amotz Eyal spoke tonight at Zionism Museum and Educational Center. Fantastic presentation. This guy is for real. He needs us to get the truth out there in the Media to combat the lies and distortions in the international media.  He demonstrated examples of video edited so we only see Jews throwing stones but don't see that it was in response to a lynching of a fellow Jew, he showed how by changing the angle of the camera one can get the story the cameraman wishes to show rather then the reality.   He is here in NY until next Thursday.  Exposing the truth behind the story. Media, please contact him (Tazpit email is in CC above) and give this News Agency the publicity it deserves! Fein Lounge was filled and we sat in utter silence and disgust watching those videos telling a lie or shall we say modern day libels. Yasher Koach once again to Stephen Epstein, director of the Zionism Museum for putting this event as well as the other excellent events together.
  • Organizations Supporting BDS to March in Israel Day Parade   When I read this article I wanted to boycott the Israel Day Parade and just go to the Israel Day Concert organized by authentic lovers of Israel, Dr. Paul Brody and Dr. Joseph Frager.  Not like the betrayers to Israel, organizers of the Parade, who apparently are making lousy choices as per who they are allowing to march in the Parade. ( UJA-Federation and Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC).  Thank you Richard Allen of for being on top of this.
  • Iran behind Global March to Jerusalem   When we hear our enemies claim all of our Holy Sites - Yerushalayim - Har Habayit, Hebron, Kever Rochel, Kever Yosef as their own, and they proclaim so to the world with the fanfare of a Global March, endorsed by Obama's bff Pastor, Rev. Wright, (thank you Beth Gilinsky for sending this out) they are teaching us how WE should be the ones proclaiming the truth!  Yes....With all the fanfare and publicity! Do you know how identity theft occurs?  When it is not challenged!  Please contact the Rabbanim of Major Jewish Organizations like Agudath Yisroel, Young Israel, OU, RCA, Chabad International, Iggud HaRabbonim etc.  and beg them to counter this Chillul Hashem with our own Proclamation of Truth!  (thank you activist, Shmuel Koenig for addressing this Chillul Hashem and for making such phone calls to Rav Shmuel Kamenetsky, Rabbanim in Flatbush etc.) Even if we call 100 times and we are ignored, perhaps we will be listened to the 101st time.  The Lubavitch Rebbe spoke about WHEN SILENCE IS A SIN and the OBLIGATION to PROTEST and the OBLIGATION to SETTLE the ENTIRE LAND OF ISRAEL . (Thank you Raanan Isseroff and Rabbi Wolpo for giving me this book as a present put out by Sichos in English) Haven't the recent attacks on Southern Israel hitting Beer Sheva etc taught us to learn from our mistakes. It happened because we gave away GUSH KATIF! We must go into Gaza and reclaim this Land.  Are we waiting for an attack on Tel Aviv or Jerusalem or fatalities chas vechalila???

Must read story: The Fogel family one year later ... Beautiful Itamar. facebook, read Prof. Paul Eidelberg..Where Netanyahu spells Disaster , Rev Wright for One Million March. on J-M


Please read this amazing article about Itamar one year later.....Yasher Koach to Jerusalem Post and Algemeiner for publishing!

Under Netanyahu's Administration, Israeli Soldiers are put in jail and homes in Judea and Samaria are being bulldozed.  Please watch the painful videos recorded by Tazpit (see video section) of a demonstration to release ideological Jewish prisoners. I don't know of their particular stories and why they were imprisoned but I've been reading too many stories about how Arabs who attack Jews are being protected by Police and innocent Jewish victims are accused of aggression against the Arabs. Speakers at this demonstration is a wife of a prisoner named Shachar and a girlfriend of another prisoner.  Their message is that their men are defending Israel yet are incarcerated while terrorists are being set free.  The emotional pain of these women, clearly who love the Land and the country is heartbreaking.  Their theme is Leshachrer Chayalim Velo Mechablim. Release the soldiers that protect our country and not terrorists. 

Please read Prof. Paul Eidelberg's comments about Netanyahu. 
Here is where the Netanyahu government spells disaster—as did his predecessors, including the great warrior Ariel Sharon. Among Netanyahu's professed political objectives is a Palestinian state—as stated in his 2009 foreign policy speech at Bar Ilan University—for which he needs a "negotiating partner" among the so-called Palestinians. This is why he does not destroy the entire Arab terrorist network in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza. Instead, he employs absurdly limited and futile means of targeted killings, destruction of a few Arab houses and bomb factories. He is afraid to launch a full-scale attack to win the war and so devastate the enemy as to eradicate the enemy's desire to wage war for a hundred years—as the Allied powers did in Germany and the United States in Japan. 

My (Robin's) comments:  It is crystal clear that Fatah and Hamas are on the same wavelength as Nazi Germany.  They glorify terrorists, they are not shy about their intent to destroy all of Israel.

Rockets are pouring into Israel now because of the expulsion from Gush Katif almost 7 years ago.  Yet Netanyahu's gov't is asking for more abuse with his objective - a Palestinian State???? Why doesn't he subscribe to PMW (Palestinian Media Watch???) like I do?

What is the point of pretenses that a Palestinian State is an option?  Netanyahu is generally a smart man but when it comes to this he is obtuse.  The only possible explanation I can think of  is Shochad MeAver Pikchim - Bribery blinds the wise.  I don't know the details of course but our Sages teach us that Bribery  corrupts wisdom. 

Please read the following email just sent by Beth Gilinsky of NCJA

State Dept. Consultant Addresses Anti-Semitic, Anti-Israel Doha Conference in Qatar
For Immediate Release

Contact: Beth Gilinsky (212) 726-1124

                Lori Lowenthal Marcus

                Dr. Herbert I. London


New York, March 12, 2012 -- The National Conference on Jewish Affairs has learned that among the endorsers of the upcoming "Global March to Jerusalem" is the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who was President Obama's pastor for 20 years at the Trinity United Church of Christ on Chicago's south side. The Rev. Wright, of "God Damn America" notoriety, also asserted that the U.S. brought on the 9/11 attacks with its own "terrorism." (source: ABC News)

The Global March to Jerusalem, to take place on March 30th, follows on the heels of the anti-Israel, anti-Semitic Doha Conference on the Defense of 
" 'Occupied' Jerusalem".  Both events are aimed at reversing what their organizers call the Judaization of "occupied Jerusalem."  
NCJA has already expressed its concern that a self-identified consultant to the State Department, Kenneth Insley, attended and addressed, thereby endorsing, the Doha Conference, and today NCJA is reiterating its demand to know who in the State Department greenlighted his attendance at the Conference, and whether or not taxpayer dollars paid for any of his expenses.  

In a March 1, 2012 letter to Secretary of State Clinton, NCJA stated:

The Doha conference itself was a two-day long effort to demonize Israel and deny Judaism's more than three thousand year  connection to Jerusalem.  The words and tone of Mr. Insley's speech in which he attacked and ridiculed Israel's leaders and politicians, and also US politicians, are a disgrace to our nation.  

Mr. Insley not only claimed to be an official consultant to the State Department, but claimed to have spent the past decade "coordinating many international exchanges with State Department delegations."   You can read his entire speech here:, or simply read some of the lowlights in the attached press release.

On behalf of our national membership we ask whether (1) Mr. Insley attended the conference about Jerusalem in Doha on February 26-27, 2012, as an official representative of the United States government; (2) any US taxpayer dollars were used to subsidize any part of Mr. Insley's attendance at the Doha conference; and if the answer to any of those two questions are no, whether an official statement correcting the misimpression created by Mr. Insley will be sent to all participants of the Doha Conference, as well as to the government of Israel.  Of course, if the answer to either is yes we are appalled that our government is officially taking such positions anywhere, but especially in such a public and already vehemently anti-Israel forum, and intend to pursue this with members of congress.  We further wish to know whether the Department of State intends to sever all official and any other contact with Mr. Insley for his slanderous and disgraceful attacks on the government of Israel and on the reputations of members of the United States Congress.

That the President's long-time pastor and "spiritual leader" is now endorsing the Global March to Jerusalem, without a reaction from the White House, underscores President Obama's failure to recognize the unalterable significance of Judaism's multi-millennial connection to Jerusalem, which is the capital of the Jewish State, Israel.  Many NCJA leaders have long called for moving the American Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.  NCJA calls on the President to condemn the Global March to Jerusalem and asks whether or not he will renounce his former pastor's support of such an anti-Israel, anti-Semitic assault.

NCJA leaders note the global, heavily-funded propaganda war that is currently being waged by Arab leaders and hard leftists (including such dangerously foolish Jewish publicity-hounds as Medea Benjamin, Richard Falk, Neta Golan and Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb), and the release of a slickly produced propaganda song designed to lure world anti-Semites, self-hating Jews, leftists without a cause, and other Israel haters to march on Jerusalem.

List of endorsers, from the Global March on Jerusalem website:

Please feel free to disseminate this widely.

 Purim Message from Rabbi Wolpo Shlita

Founder Gush Katif Museum 

The Speech That Was Never Delivered  at the Dinner, Waiting For the Right Time

Razag Ballroom – Erev Rosh Chodesh Adar 5772 – February 22, 2012


espected Rabbis, honored dignitaries, distinguished guest speakers and guests of honor, devoted friends of the Land of Israel, ladies and gentlemen:

It is my honor to thank you all for participating in this special event, by which you are expressing your resolve to identify with our heartfelt cry to Israel's leaders to stop, once and for all, their dead-end policies of uprooting Jewish settlements in the Holy Land, and of forfeiting our ancestral homeland to our enemies, whose sole desire is to destroy our people, men, women, and children, G-d forbid – just like Haman, viceroy of Persia, whose downfall we will soon celebrate on Purim.

Some people naively believe that problems with the Arabs started only after Israel captured the so-called "territories" in the Six Day War of 1967. Therefore, they claim, if only Israel would retreat to the 1967 borders, peace will break out in the Middle East.

I have news for them! My grandfather, Rabbi Zelig Slonim, a well-known Chossid, was born in the city of Hebron in 1897. His father was the Rabbi of the בית הכנסת של אברהם אבינו, the famous synagogue known by the name of Abraham our patriarch, in Hebron. One day, when my grandfather was just one year old, an Arab living in Hebron brutally kicked his father in the chest so hard that he fell down dead! My grandfather lost his father at that tender age, and he and his siblings grew up without a father. That was almost seventy years before Israel's conquest of the territories!

Thirty years later, in 1929, the Arabs living in Hebron – for no reason at all – suddenly started slaughtering the Jewish residents there in most barbaric fashion. In that pogrom, they brutally murdered almost seventy men, women, and children, including many of my grandfather's wider family. Those murdered Jews weren't new settlers; most had lived in Hebron for generations. This happened twenty years before the state of Israel and almost forty years before the Israeli conquest in 1967. It was just murder of Jews for the sake of murder!

In 1953, my father-in-law, whom I was never privileged to know, Rabbi Heshy Genauer, was sitting in his home in Jerusalem studying Torah. A few months before, he had left Seattle, Washington, where his family lived, to immigrate to the Holy Land. With him at home were my wife, aged then just five years old, and her younger siblings. His wife and two other children happened to be out. Visiting him was his 19-year-old niece from Seattle. Suddenly, an Arab terrorist burst into his home and shot my father-in-law and his niece to death. My saintly mother-in-law was widowed at the age of 29, and had to raise her five young children without a father. Again, this was just murder for the sake of murder. You're Jewish, so you deserve to die!

These murders are what happened in just a single family. Multiply that by many thousands of families whose members have lost life and limb at the hands of Arab barbarians who view Jews exactly as the Nazis did. We know now that it was their religious leader, the infamous Mufti of Jerusalem, who urged Hitler to proceed with his "Final Solution" of the so-called "Jewish problem," and who came up with the gruesome idea of using gas chambers for that devilish scheme. Now, in recent weeks, his successor, the present Mufti of Jerusalem, has once again called on all Arabs to kill as many Jews as possible!


Some may think that Abbas is somehow better than the others. I've got news for them, too! Abbas is said to have earned a doctorate – by writing a thesis trying to prove that the Holocaust never happened! It was Abbas who organized the shocking slaughter of Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics in 1973, and the heartless murder of 22 Jewish children in Maalot, northern Israel, in 1974, besides many other terrorist acts that have cost many Jews their lives.

In spite of all these known facts, it's with this accomplished terrorist, the heartless ringleader of a gang of bloodthirsty murderers, that Israel's government conducts negotiations, promising its support for establishing a terror state in the very heart of the land of Israel! And to keep those thugs happy and to make sure that the criminal negotiations continue, Israel's government orders IDF soldiers to burst into settlements in Judah and Samaria every night after midnight to cruelly evict families and even babies from their cribs, throwing them out into the winter frost, and destroying their homes that they have built at great effort, out of pure love for the Holy Land!

Therefore, in the name of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, the leader of our generation, who directed me to devote myself to this sacred cause, I call upon the Israeli government with the following message: You have no right to negotiate at all about giving away even one inch of our land! You have no right to destroy Jewish settlements! These acts only intensify the terror, and make peace and security ever more distant! The land of Israel was G-d's gift to our ancestors, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and it doesn't belong to any government or Knesset, but is the possession of the entire Jewish people for all time!

I would like to thank everyone who has helped to make this evening such a great success. I won't single out any names, in case I miss someone. But G-d is aware of every one of you and will reward you all as you deserve, with blessings for family, good health and abundant livelihood.

I would like to call on all our good friends, both those gathered here and those unable to come tonight: Please open your hearts and your checkbooks to help our vitally needed organization which works day and night to preserve the integrity of the land of Israel.

As is well-known, the left-wing organizations working against this cause (such as Shalom Achshav) are amply funded by the European Union and left-wing organizations in North America.

We, on the other hand, have only you, our dear guests. Perhaps you don't have millions in the bank, but you are millionaires in terms of your heartfelt generosity. Please enable us to continue, and to act on your behalf for this sacred cause. And together we will be able to proclaim, with perfect faith, the famous verse from Isaiah: עוצו עצה ותופר, דברו דבר ולא יקום, כי עמנו קל – "Plan a conspiracy but it will be foiled, speak your word but it will not stand, for G-d is with us!"
