Stop Iran Rally , Save the Date and Share. Tuesday, September 1, 5:30PM




*Rally and Press Conference against a nuclear Iran*

Where: Outside Senators Schumer's and Gillibrand's office
780 Third Avenue, NYC (at 49th street)

Stop Iran Rally, the grassroots movement that brought 15,000 people to Times Square in July, will protest against the dangerous deal with Iran at Senator Gillibrand's office in New York City on September 1.

US Republican Senator Lindsey Graham and retired US Democratic Senator Joe Lieberman will headline the bipartisan rally, where they will deliver a landmark foreign policy speech.

Family members of victims of Iranian terror, including the daughter of an Iranian journalist who died a political prisoner and the brother of a US Navy Seal tortured and killed on TWA Flight 847 by Iranian proxy Hezbollah, will also address the thousands of New Yorkers expected to attend the rally.

The nature of evil regimes will be the subject of an important speech by a child survivor of medical experiments and torture at a Nazi labor camp.
"Morale outrage is what New Yorkers feel about this dangerous deal because the Iranian regime has shown itself, since taking the American embassy in 1979, to be vile law breakers with complete disregard for human life," said Jeffrey Wiesenfeld, one of the volunteer activists coordinating the rally.

"The twisted Iranian regime will treat this deal with the same contempt and disdain they show when hanging hundreds of Iranian homosexuals from cranes in downtown Tehran," Wiesenfeld said. "This is who America is partnering with, and the stakes are too high to be fooled."
Senator Gillibrand has pledged to support the deal, while New York's senior Senator Chuck Schumer, whose office happens to be in the same building, at 780 Third Avenue, opposes the agreement and has argued that America should hold out for better terms.

The Stop Iran Rally is inviting thousands of New Yorkers to show Senator Gillibrand how vital her opposition to this deal is for her constituent voters. The rally's message is simple: "Vote No."
Among the many speakers scheduled for September 1, New Yorkers will hear from:

  • Senator Lindsey Graham – Third-Term Republican Senator, Congressman, Air Force Reserve Colonel
  • Senator Joe Lieberman – Chairman of United Against Nuclear Iran, Former Democratic and Independent Senator, serving from 1989 to 2013
  • Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi – Iranian human rights activist and filmmaker whose father, journalist Siamak Pourzand, was held for a decade as a political prisoner and dissident before killing himself, at 80, while under house arrest.
  • Ken Stethem – Former US Navy SEAL whose brother Robert Stethem, also a Navy Seal, was kidnapped, along with 39 other passengers on TWA Flight 847, then tortured and shot by Iranian terro proxy Hezbollah.
  • Sami Steigmann – Sami is a child survivor of experiments, abuse and torture at the hands of Nazi doctors at labor camp in Mogilev Podolski, Ukraine, during World War II.
  • Protesters will line the street in front of Senator Gillibrand's New York office, at 780 Third Avenue, between 49th and 50th Streets. The rally will be from 5:30PM to 7:30PM.

We all must come together as one united nation to protect the security and safety of our country and closest allies.

Fwd: Why Israel Hasn't Bombed Iran by Prof. Paul Eidelberg


The Truth of these words written in 2006 by Prof. Eidelberg have stood the test of time!  According to what he writes, the expulsion from Gush Katif  happened as a result of political bribery which has contributed to the rise of Iran in 2015 to the point that the entire world is now facing a Nuclear Threat.  

Time to do Teshuva my friends.  Be True to Torah and don't be political!  Speak out for Judea and Samaria based on our G-d Given rights to the Land. 
HODU Zichru le'olam b'riso, davar tziva le'elef dor. Asher karas es Avraham, u'shevu'aso le'Yitzchak. Vaya'amide'ha le'Ya'akov lechok, le'Yisra'el b'ris olam. Le'emor, lecha eh'ten Eretz K'na'an, chevel nachalas'chem.
Remember His covenant forever - the word He commanded for a thousand generations - that He made with Abraham and His vow to Isaac. Then He established it for Jacob as a statute, for Israel as an everlasting covenant; saying, "To you I shall give the land of Canaan, the lot of your heritage."

Subject: Why Israel Hasn't Bombed Iran

Why Israel Hasn't Bombed Iran

Prof. Paul Eidelberg


In September 2006, I published an article on the July 2006 Israel-Hezbollah War in Lebanon. (It was also called the "July War.") 

I am resurrecting this article because Hezbollah, undefeated in that war, and having been supplied by Iran with thousands of rockets, may deter an Israeli attack on Tehran. 

A. It all began with Israel's disengagement from Gaza. Former Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Moshe Ya'alon admitted that Israel's retreat from Gaza in the south incited Hezbollah to attack Israel in the north and that triggered the Lebanese War.  But what led to Israel's retreat? 


1. We must first recall that Labor's policy of "unilateral disengagement" from Gaza was the paramount issue of the January 2003 election. The parties that opposed this policy won 84 seats or 70% of the Knesset's 120-membership!  The Likud alone won 38 seats, while Labor won only 19 – the lowest ever for that party.  Clearly, a vast majority of the public rejected Labor's policy.

            2.  Nevertheless, Likud Prime Minister Ariel Sharon adopted that policy! He thus betrayed the will of the people unequivocally expressed in the aforementioned January election.

            3.  However, to implement Labor's policy, the Knesset had to expel 8,000 Jews from their homes in Gaza, and this required the passage of an Evacuation Law.  But how could the Knesset pass such a law when (a) 84 MKs, including 38 Likudniks, had opposed disengagement, and (b) Israel's highest military and intelligence officials had testified against disengagement before the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee?

            4. Since Sharon had offered no rational defense of disengagement, he had to induce a sufficient number of Likud MKs to vote for the Evacuation Law.  This he could only do by means of political bribery, such as the plums of cabinet posts.  And so, 23 Likud MKs voted for the law.  Hardly any would have done so had they been individually elected by and accountable to the voters in constituency elections – the practice of all genuine democracies, many of which are smaller in size and population than Israel.


5. In Israel, however, its first government in 1948 made the entire country a single electoral district in which parties with fixed lists of candidates compete for Knesset seats on the basis of Proportional Representation.  Since no incumbent has to face a rival candidate for his seat in the Knesset, MKs and those who become Cabinet Ministers, can ignore public opinion with impunity.  This is exactly what the Sharon Government did when it retreated from Gaza. 

6. This perfidious act (which led to the ascendancy of Hamas) was sanctified by the Supreme Court, a self-perpetuating oligarchy that declared Gaza "belligerent occupied territory." This ruling, which actually violated the Court's own precedents as well as objective international law, is another hidden cause of the Lebanese War.

7. It follows from the preceding facts that Israel's undemocratic system of government led to the Lebanese War!

B.  The Government's Ineptitude


1. To win a war with an ideological foes, Israel's Government must accurately define the enemy.


a. Hezbollah is not merely a guerrilla organization; it's a Shi'ite terrorist army.  A guerrilla organization attacks and retreats; an army stands and resists the attacker. Since Hezbollah was too well-entrenched in Lebanon to be defeated by air power, a ground invasion of appropriate magnitude was required near the outset at the war.  None took place.

b. Hezbollah is a proxy of Iran.  But with 14 seats in Lebanon's 128-member parliament and two cabinet posts, Hezbollah is also an integral part of the Lebanese government.  Contrary to the "Ceder Revolution," however, Lebanon remained a Syrian puppet. This is why Lebanon facilitated Hezbollah's deployment of 13,000 missiles supplied primarily by Iran via Syria.  Lebanon is nonetheless responsible for Hezbollah's unprovoked attack on Israel. 


2. Hence, it may be argued that Israel should have declared war on Lebanon and bombed certain Syrian targets.  Failing to do so made it appear that Israel was merely fighting a terrorist organization.  Since Israel could hardly have attacked Iran, it was all the more crucial for the Government to demolish Hezbollah as a fighting force. But this is beyond the mentality of Israel's milquetoast government.


C.  The Ideological Dimension of the War 

1.  The war between Israel and its neighbors is a religious war and not merely a war over territory. Yet no Israeli government has ever told the truth about its enemy. The enemy is totalitarian Islam, an imperialistic creed. Since a large percentage of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims support Islam's Jihadic agenda, Islam is more dangerous than Nazism and Soviet Communism.  Armed with weapons of mass murder, Islam could conquer the world and enslave mankind.


2.  Israel's debacle in Lebanon did not help the cause of freedom. The winner was Shiite Iran, a regime animated by the fanaticism and world-conquering ambition of the Ayatollah Khomeini. 

D.  Israel Needs Systemic Change


         1. The debacle of the July War prompted many Israelis to demand the resignation of Israel's ruling elites, including the wretched Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, the utterly unqualified Defense Minister Amir Peretz, and, for good measure, Chief of General Staff Dan Halutz. Others demanded a national commission of inquiry. Still others called for new elections. However, here is how I perceived the mess into which Israel's dysfunctional government  had fallen: 


a. If Olmert were to resign, Vice Premier Shimon Peres would step into his shoes and head a caretaker government – hardly a promising option.


b. Any national commission of inquiry would be a protracted affair and leave Olmert in power.   If the commission is chaired by Chief Justice Aharon Barak, a cover-up would follow since his ruling regarding Gaza is one of the hidden causes of the war.

c. And new elections would only bring the same fools and scoundrels back to power.

2.  Clearly, Israel's system of governance is a disaster.  Systemic change is absolutely necessary.  The present writer proposes the establishment of a Constituent Assembly to draft a Constitution based on a unique synthesis of Jewish and democratic principles. 


a. To democratize the Executive branch, the corruption-infested system of multi-party cabinet government must be replaced by a presidential system.

b. To democratize the Legislature, its members must be individually elected by the voters in distinct constituencies (and legislators must be excluded from the cabinet).

c. To democratize the Judiciary, Supreme Court judges should be nominated by the President and confirmed by the legislature.

d. But to prevent Israel from becoming "a state of its citizens," the Constitution must enshrine Israel's Jewish essence as a paramount law.


E.  War and Peace 


        1.  Israel is at war with an implacable foe.   We need a government that will prepare our people for war. This will require a wartime budget, a civil defense program, a war-winning strategy, and various economic and scientific programs to make Israel a self-reliant superpower.

2.  Israel must destroy the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority. I therefore advocate the annexation of Judea and Samaria, a Land Act to settle 250,000 Jews in these areas; and financial incentives to facilitate Arab emigration.

          3.  Neither Israel nor the U.S. can tolerate a nuclear Iran. Israel must be prepared to launch a preemptive attack on Iran if the U.S. fails to do so.

          4. The time has come for Israel to set a military as well as moral example to mankind.

F. Conclusion.  Israel lacks three things:  

1. A clear understanding of her enemy, which understanding informs public education and public opinion.

2. A clear sense of what Israel stands for as a nation, which requires a Jewish philosophy rooted in the basic sources of the Jewish people.

3. A tripartite structure of government that separates the Legislature from the Executive, and that has a Judiciary whose members are not only learned in Jewish as well as in secular law, but who understand that the basic purpose of a Supreme Court is to reconcile permanence and change – the genius of the Jewish people.☼

[Jay Ticker]

Please read Rabbi Zwiebel's plea...

Re: A Plea From Agudah In the Matter of an Iranian Nuclear Deal:

My comments: 

Agudah has concluded,  that there is no alternative other than a negotiated settlement,  with Iran but that we need a better deal. 

Why is the military option not an option for Agudah? Let me suggest the YES WE CAN Fight Iran Option!

Agudath Yisroel needs to advocate the Torah perspective.  There must be strength and conviction of our ability to conquer the enemy and of the rights to Our Land based on Torah! Then there must be serious mobilization of Rabbis and constituents! It is a Chillul Hashem not to assert our rights to Eretz Yisroel!  We must brace ourselves for a harsh response, antisemitism, etc which we will face regardless, the question is when and will it be an actual physical attack from Iran or just public outcry the lesser of the 2 evils.....

Failure to overcome Iran means existential threat so it can not be an option! I don't know what salvation Rabbi Sternbuch is depending on. Hasn't the Holocaust taught us something? Elef le Mateh, Elef LeMateh means that Israel fought back physically and in prayer.  Yakov Avinu prepared for War in 3 ways.

Similarly, it is insufficient to be satisfied with  Schumer to simply come out against the Iranian Deal.

Schumer must mobilize enough of the Democrats against the Deal. Otherwise his vote is meaningless! We must convince Senator Gillibrand as well!  We must be relentless to contact all the Senators and House of Representatives that can or have made a difference! We expect AGudah and our Rabbanim to  come to the plate because we desperately need them to do so!

And we must Davan!

Statement From Agudath Israel of America on Iranian Nuclear Agreement - July 18, 2015

Hagon HaRav Moshe Sternbuch Opposes Agudath Israel's Lobbying Efforts Against Iran Nuke Deal August 23, 2015

My comments:

HaRav Sternbuch's statement was very depressing and discouraging!

Please compare Agudah's letter with  another letter, this one written by Mosheh Walfish,  Commentary Magazine September 2015 issue. (I thank my husband for showing it to me)

Now here is a voice which sounds like it is coming from Hebron! 

I pray of the day that Agudah will be Metaken the Chait HaMiraglim and be mezakeh  and strengthen the people to be truly worthy of salvation.   

We as a people have yet to unite!


Many of the LGBT (Lesbian Gay, Bisexual and Transsexual) community are against the Iran deal, because gay people are being hung on the gallows in IRAN. While the LGBT lifestyle is not one endorsed by those who believe in Torah, to their credit, they are not standing IDLY by in face of a potential holocaust!  Can the Rabbanim who are so much more powerful in influencing a large constituents say the same?


Congressman Hakeem Jeffries had a town meeting Agudah endorsed.  Let me tell you that I was there and the theme "There is no alternative to a negotiated settlement" was the starting point of those against the Iran Agreement!  That means that the organizers decided that we have no choice but to trust Iran and/or the UN for Israel's security!

Let us take the approach of Calev and Yehoshua!

We must encourage anyone that can to visit CHevron, Maarat HaMachpela. "Aloh Naaleh Ki Yachol Nuchal".  We will conquer the Land because "YES WE CAN"

This is the Teshuva, Repentence of the Chait HaMiraglim and a CAN DO approach!

YES WE CAN Fight Iran Option!


Former Top IDF Intel Officer: Military Strike Could Thwart Iranian Nuclearization for Good

Brig. Gen. (res.) Yossi Kuperwasser wrote that a military strike against Iran would inflict significant damage on Iran's nuclear program and thwart its weapons ambitions

Congress could pass a bill to reauthorize sanctions

Every state and firm considering business opportunities with Tehran will have to weigh them against the opportunity cost of being barred from doing business with the US.

·       Reps. Grace Meng (D-Queens) and Lee Zeldin (R-LI), members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, wrote in the N.Y. Post that Congress should vote to approve bunker buster bombs for Israel. 

·       House and Senate Members should pass a concurrent resolution deeming that for Congress's internal purposes, the Iran deal is a treaty that requires a two thirds vote to pass.

The Iran deal includes secret side-agreements the Obama administration appears to have deliberately withheld from Congress. That move is a prima facie violation of Corker-Cardin….

·      Congress can condition the Iran deal's legal stature on the passage of enabling legislation – that requires simple majorities in both houses.  Dan Darling, foreign policy adviser to … Rand Paul wrote Monday that senators can use Senate procedure to force the Foreign Relations Committee to act in this manner.   

·      State legislatures can pass their own sanctions against Iran.  An executive agreement, unlike a treaty, is not binding on the states.  This would apply only to state business and pension fund investment.

At the end of the day, the problem with the Democrats in Congress is that they have not been hearing from their constituents.  Will this change in the last few weeks?

The most powerful voices lobbying against the deal have been coming from the military.

Obama could only get 36 retired US generals to sign a petition in favor of his 'deal.'  This week, a group of five citizen volunteers in a few days got a letter signed by 190 US generals and admirals that will be handed to every member in Congress.  The letter reads in part:

In our judgment as former senior military officers, the agreement will not have that effect (preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons).  Removing sanctions on Iran and releasing billions of dollars to its regime over the next ten years is inimical to the security of Israel and the Middle East.  There is no credibility within JCPOA's inspection process or the ability to snap back sanctions once lifted, should Iran violate the agreement. In this and other respects, the JCPOA would threaten the national security and vital interests of the United States and, therefore, should be disapproved by the Congress. 

The agreement as constructed does not "cut off every pathway" for Iran to acquire nuclear weapons.  To the contrary, it actually provides Iran with a legitimate path to doing that simply by abiding by the deal.

…The agreement is unverifiable.  Under the terms of the JCPOA and a secret side deal (to which the United States is not privy), the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will be responsible for inspections under such severe limitations as to prevent them from reliably detecting Iranian cheating.

It's not just generals.  American vets are speaking out about the Iran capitulation.  In some states, they have been helped with organizing and funding to produce very moving videos.  This can and should be done in every state with traitorous Democrat Congressman.

From Hakeem Jeffries meeting Brighton Beach

Jeffries himself repeatedly stated that Israel lives in a tough neighborhood and he knows that the only language these guys respect is coming from a position of strength. I think that we need to do a more convincing job in presenting the military option coupled with crippling Banking sanctions by the US as the only option to stop IRAN. It was Jeffries himself over the course of the evening who actually spoke of these options.  Jeffries said that America has the capability to surgically take out the weapons buried deep in the mountains via MOP and Satellite GPS Technology. Capabilities that America did not have previously.  I googled MOP and came up with this interview with Defense Secretary Ashton Carter . 

Is the military option still on the table?
Carter said that the current framework for a deal with Iran does not take the military option off the table but added that it will currently not be used.
"We have the capability to shut down, set back and destroy the Iranian nuclear program and I believe the Iranians know that and understand that," he said, referencing the military's most powerful ground-penetrating bomb, the Massive Ordinance Penetrator (MOP).
The MOP -- which can explode 200 feet underground and is designed to destroy deeply buried and fortified targets -- is ready for use, Carter said.

Jeffries said that the reason the military option is not an option according to the Administration is because they believe if America goes that route it will trigger rockets raining over Israel, Tel Aviv and Haifa.  

My thoughts at the time was,  surely that is something Israel would wish to avoid as well.  According to Congressman Jeffries, there is still a very strong working relationship with American and Israeli Intelligence. Surely they can work together and figure out how to counteract this potential threat that comes coupled with a military option of striking Iran's nuclear facilities.  What came to mind was that surely those who were being taken to Auschwitz crematoria in the Cattle Cars would  have supported American air strikes bombing the train tracks to Auschwitz even if they were in direct line of fire.  One needs to look at the bigger picture!

Jeffries also, over the course of the evening said that from talking to banking experts, there are clearly  ways via the American banking system to also "attack" countries who are presently trying to do business with Iran.  Now that there are billions of released assets due to sanctions relief we need to somehow stop the flow of business deals which serve to empower and resupply Iran and terrorists with conventional weapons. But he also mentioned that since America has a high debt to countries like China and Japan, that limits us.

Defending the State


To the Editor:

Sohrab Ahmari shows a moment of understanding in his essay "What Does IT Mean to Be 'Pro Israel?' [May] when he writes, "the trouble with such feel-good hasbara is that it betrays an inner insecurity of defensiveness about Israel rather than confidence."  

The problem didn't start with J-Street, Obama, or the State Department, or with the UN or the EU.  It didn't start with Sharon, or Rabin, or Amir, or Begin.  And it didn't start with the UN Partition Plan or the San Remo Conference or the Balfour Declaration. 

 It started and continues in the heart of the Jewish nation.  It started in Numbers, with the Jews' rejection of the land of Israel, and it continues in the Jews' rejection of the Land being given to us by the Creator of heaven and earth, the definer of good and evil, the arbiter of right and wrong.  

The whole problem would fade into nothingness if we were to reach a consensus that this land is ours by dint of our Creator's giving it to us. Not the UN, not the Holocaust, not military right, no historical connections, but simply because He gave it to us.  With this conviction in our hearts, all the "inner insecurity or defensiveness' will disappear and we won't even hear the meaningless voices of our detractors.

A Plea From The Agudah (as seen in AMI Magazine) Issue 231 August 19, 2015


A Plea From The Agudah (as seen in AMI Magazine Issue 231 August 19, 2015)

In the Matter of the Iranian Nuclear Deal

The following letter was issued this past week by Agudath Israel of America

[I saw this letter to the Editor in Ami Magazine but did not see any link to it. Apparently it wasn't publicized.  So I have taken the liberty of posting it on my blog so others will know about it. Robin]

Dear Friends of Agudath Israel of America:

As many experts and elected officials have pointed out, the deal recently concluded with Iran regarding the Iranian nuclear program raises serious concerns for the United States and its allies, especially Israel.  Indeed, the full spectrum of Israeli political opinion has come out strongly against the proposed deal, calling it an "existential threat" to the people of Israel.

Under the direction of the Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah, Agudath Israel of America's staff and lay leadership have reached out to members of Congress over the last few weeks to urge them to vote against the proposed deal. High level face-to-face meetings have been, and are being arranged with key members of the Senate and the House, both in Washington and in local districts.

With Congress currently in recess, and with its vote on the Iranian nuclear deal set to take place soon after its return to Washington in September, now is the time for you, our constituents, to make your voices heard. Over the next few weeks, while Congress is home for summer break, we urge you to respectfully call upon your elected representatives to disapprove the current deal and push for a stronger deal that will better protect the United States and its allies, especially Israel.  If your member of Congress has already publicly spoken out against the deal, please take a moment to thank him or her.

For sample letters and contact information for your elected officials,as well as suggested talking points if you wish to go into greater detail in your written or oral communication with your senator or representative, please contact our office.

Many thanks for your participation to this critical effort. May we hear only Besoros Tovos and always merit the protective embrace of Avinu Shebashamayim.

Fwd: Pidyon Shvuyim! Appeal to the Prime Minister Netanyahu to Release 16 Young Jews With No Charges Filed.


Wow, I didn't realize that there were 16 Young Jews in Administrative detention or under house arrest or administrative orders that limit them in some way.  

There is a Mitzvah of Pidyon Shvuyim. 

One should not be Motzei Shem Ra, spread false reports, on these kids nor accept any Lashon Hara  before they have been verified and found guilty in a court of law.  Even if these detainees do admit guilt, there is a likelihood that their confession was coerced under administrative detention.

As far as I know there is no evidence of prior convictions for any of these young Jews.  We shouldn't assume that they are guilty even if they are placed under house arrest or under administrative detention.

Don't you think with all of Israel's intelligence they would have come up with some conclusive evidence?  

The whole "Price Tag"  policy seems to be untrue, unfounded and slanderous to the settlement community and the hilltop youth.  These "price tag" attacks have probably been staged by Arabs or even Jews, in order to frame, discredit the Settlers and the hilltop youth community. 


This works for Arabs because it gives Arabs an excuse to engage in acts of terror against Jews . Pretty sad.  

But why would Jews want to spread false reports?

David Bedein points out that Moshe Yaalon, in his position as IDF Commander, oversaw similar mental training of IDF, vicious psychological warfare, to brainwash the IDF soldiers, prior to home demolitions and expulsions from Gush Katif which then helped them to carry out their mission. Surely, pressures from the Obama Administration, EU, United Nations aren't helping...

Hard to say which is sadder. 

Note that in contrast, over 170 Jewish children, many in Judea and Samaria and Jerusalem, have been killed by Arab terror attacks. 

Unfortunately both Jews and Non Jews, MK's and even Yesha leaders, Jewish and non Jewish media,  have been spreading the false narrative of "Jewish Terrorists" and their "Price Tag revenge". When I was in the Best Western in Rockville Md, the USA Today newspaper distributed for free, to the hotel guests  got this read on page 7a. 

Israel's enemy within: Young militant settlers by Shira Rubin 

For Settlers the best revenge against atrocities as the destruction of their homes, is to build and rebuild.... These are Israel's enemies? Only if you spread false rumors...

From David Bedein

Credible journalists now show that there is every reason to believe that the arson which occurred in Duma on July 31 was the result of internal Arab fights.  
Appeal to the Prime Minister to release 16 young Jews now being held for six months in prison under administrative detention, with no charges filed, no lawyer to represent them, and no court case. 
These young men are subject to daily mental and physical abuse, and have no legal recourse to fight back
Ask the Prime Minister, who is in charge of the GSS, to try them in court if he has evidence of wrong doing, or to release them.

Netanyahu has to hear from all of us that we do not like this policy of Jewish administrative detention especially when there is no history to prove that violence is in the works!  Does it have to take Arabs with real terror on their hands to prove that  Jewish administrative detention is perhaps unwarranted.

...But on reflection, I realized my reaction to the arrest of the suspected Jewish terrorists was wrong. We should not address one human rights violation (administrative detention of Palestinians) with another human rights violation (administrative detention of Jews).

Arresting someone for crimes they have not yet committed is wrong. There is a midrash that teaches that when Abraham banished Hagar and Ishmael, one of the angels objected to God providing them with water. "The descendants of Ishmael will be trouble for the Jews," the angel said. God replied, "He is judged where he is now, not for his future actions or the actions of his descendants."
Arab terrorists should not be tried as criminals. No family should have to put up with what Eliezer and Sarah Rosenfeld  have been forced to suffer.

No IDF soldier should be put in the position of having to decide between a trial and death. 

Arab rock throwers aim to kill, and that puts the victim in a position, legally and morally, of self-defense. 
Arabs who run over Jews at bus stops or on any sidewalk or side of road are aiming to murder, so killing them is self-defense. 
Arabs who shoot Jews are aiming to murder, so killing them is self-defense. 
It's perfectly obvious and clear that these Arab terrorists are not ordinary criminals. They should not have their day in court. There is no moral or legal reason to give them a chance to defend themselves. Arab terrorists must be executed, and that's it!!

Let Arab Terrorists Commit Suicide!

Falsifying the truth and accusing a Jew of being a "terrorist" when they are not, leads to incitement of Arab violence!

Here is a clear example, again today, of how an Arab Leader, President Rouhani falsified the truth calling someone who committed arson in 1969,  a settler.

Fwd: Iran calls Australian Christian Tourist who started 1969 al Aqsa fire a "settler"

At the 13th conference of World Mosque day, today, August 20, 2015,  Iranian President Hassan Rouhani falsely  holds a Jewish settler responsible for Al-Aqsa Mosgue arson that happened  in 1969.  This Al-Aqsa Mosque arson was actually committed by an  Australian,  Christian Tourist who was found to be mentally ill (insane).  

The pattern of such false accusations are that it targets an individual settler who is then depicted as a reflection of the "aggressive, occupying, Zionist Regime". 

OY!  IT"s Catchy.  Pamele Geller is experiencing being falsely accused as well.  Blood Libels against Jews have been around for centuries.....

Pamela Geller writes: I'm Getting Death Threats Daily - and the FBI Is Warning About… Me [being a militia extremist] - Breitbart.

The website Public Intelligence  reported that "an intelligence bulletin issued by the FBI's Counterterrorism Division in late May warns that so-called 'militia extremists' are likely to begin targeting Muslim institutions, including mosques and other religious facilities."

It named me, among others, among those who incite these violent "militia extremists."

Meanwhile, as the FBI libels me as someone who inspires violence, I am getting death threats every day. Every day now.
