MAKE THIS SHABBAT, PARSHATH RE'EH, A SHABBOS TO LAUNCH GOOD PR (HASBARA) FOR JUDEA, SAMARIA and a UNITED JERUSALEM and PIKUACH NEFESH (preventing loss of life)!
As a follow-up to this week's press conference/protest against the Israeli government's decision to begin releasing 104 Arab terrorists who murdered Jewish women and children, HY"D, Rabbis, lecturers, group gatherings of all types and people in the position of community leadership are asked to dedicate their Shabbos sermon/gathering to the topic of how we can help our brethren living in the Land of Israel and especially those in Judea and Samaria in these precarious times.
The leaders of the Shomron, Gershon Mesika - Mayor; Yossi Dagan - Deputy Mayor and David HaIvri - Director of Public Diplomacy and Communications, have met with some 25 members of Congress, including Ted Cruz, Michele Bachmann, Trent Franks, John Fleming and Louie Gohmert. They were very encouraged with the support and encouragement they received by these meetings in Washington.
Mesika noted however a vacuum of hasbara, information, regarding Judea and Samaria since most of the material these congressmen/women had was coming from the palestinians or secular leftist Israelis.
Let us help them fill this vacuum and help the Shomron Council publicize their message that there are over 700,000 Jews living in these areas with sizable thriving Jewish Communities and Judea and Samaria is the more historically accurate name rather than Occupied West Bank.
We also ask that you circulate the below information and encourage people to participate in this very important action alert that will help protect and save Jewish lives.
Before the Israeli Government can release a terrorist, Israeli law dictates that a murderer must first be evaluated through a mandatory "risk assessment" process.
In previous deals, the Israeli Government ignored that process because Israeli lives were on the line - Gilad Shalit, Elchanon Tannenbaum as well as others whom the government knew to be dead but deceived the public by holding out the possibility that they were alive, as was the case with soldiers Goldwasser and Regev.
Today, no lives are at stake-
only the lives that freed convicts would kill, G-d Forbid!
Therefore, NOW is the time to let Israeli Cabinet and Knesset members know that you want them to demand and ensure that no killer go free without first going through the mandatory risk assessment process.
According to the highest sources in Israeli intelligence, such a process would definitely result in a cancellation of the orders to free at least some of the killers.
Moreover, if even ONE of the killers is not released, this could, G-d Willing, result in the implosion of the current Israel surrender process.
Bottom line; Keep up the pressure on the Israeli gov't to follow the Israeli penal law.
The Knesset will be in session until August 12. Realistically, there is one week to go..
All e-mails, fax numbers and telephone numbers of all members of the government and Knesset are listed at www.Knesset.gov.il;
Activist emails sent to my list are L'Ilui Nishmat Yisrael ben David Aryeh ob"m (Izzy - Kaplan) and Howard Chaim Grief great activists and lovers of Eretz Yisroel, Am Yisroel and the Torah. Yehi Zichronum Baruch. May their memories serve as a blessing.
