Fwd: Chuck Norris: The Case for Mike Huckabee!


This is a wonderful letter in support of Mike Huckabee.  I have one point to add.  Mike Huckabee is a Man of Faith.  There is a theological war going on with Radical Islam, threatening the world, taking over country after country, continent by continent. The only way to fight it, is by exposing their false religion and then fighting it.  The time has come to reclaim our world with the knowledge of Universal Morality and the message of the Bible which is Mike Huckabee's rock. His service to the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob protects him from all  kinds of enemies, those who want to bribe, and those who want to physically attack. May he go from strength to strength. 

This man should be the next U.S. president

By Chuck Norris

First of all, the next president of the United States should not be Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders. Hillary will send us down the same path of destruction as Obama, and Bernie will send us down an even worse path – if worse is even possible!

Every adult American needs to see the movie "13 Hours," then ask yourself: "Where was Hillary during the Benghazi attacks and does her type of AWOL leadership demonstrate what we need as commander in chief, especially with ISIS and al-Nusra on the hunt for Americans here and abroad?"

To me, any one of the GOP candidates would make a good president. Some of them could even be great. All of them would be far superior to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders.

Of course, my personal favorite is Mike Huckabee. Most know my wife, Gena, and I were on the campaign trail with Mike for five months in 2008. During that time, we clearly saw his vision and concern for our country as well as his executive experience to unite and lead our country forward. Mike had, and continues to have, a message that resonates with the American people and is a man of great authentic character.

Chuck Norris provides real solutions to our county's problems and a way to reawaken the American dream in his best-seller, "Black Belt Patriotism."

Mike's qualifications include:

He has supreme executive leadership experience as governor of Arkansas from 1996 to 2007.

He has already run against the Clinton machine multiple times throughout his years as governor of Arkansas.

He is pro-Israel, pro-military and knows the Middle East better than any candidate.

He has already won the Iowa caucus (2008).

He's been fighting conservative causes his entire adult life. The 22 conservative leaders cited in the National Review could never make a case against Huckabee as a principled consistent conservative.

He's rallied millions of citizens for years behind various fights for freedom, family and faith via his Fox News "Huckabee" show.

In 2008, very few people knew who Mike Huckabee was, but because of the "Huckabee" show, over the last six years Mike has become very well known and has his own notoriety to draw crowds to hear his message.

What most people seem to have forgotten is that Mike came in second place behind John McCain in the 2008 GOP primaries. In fact, when the totals came in, Mike had "more than 20 percent of all the votes cast nationwide." He not only won Iowa, but swept many of the southern states on Super Tuesday.

I believe Mike would have won the nomination if Sen. Fred Thompson had not jumped in the race at the last minute to siphon off votes in South Carolina. It appeared to be a strategy implemented by the GOP establishment.

Historian Dr. Timothy Stanley agreed. He cited Aaron Blake from the Washington Post, who explained how Huckabee "had a tremendous potential that went unrealized in '08. Huckabee quit early due to a shortage of cash, so we never got to see how well he could run in a great number of states. Moreover, his early performances were hindered by the candidacy of Fred Thompson – a dour, sour old stick who only seemed to be in the race to hurt Huckabee. It's fair to say that Thompson denied Huckabee a win in South Carolina and thus the momentum he needed to go the distance."

And to the person who might say, "But Mike is presently trailing in the polls," I'd ask: "Since when have polls hijacked the American voter before he or she even votes?"

Just because the media have tried to narrow down the choices doesn't mean the voters have to. We all want to be on a winning team, but we should never hand over our convictions and votes because media or pundits tell us there are only two or three viable candidates.

Mike may not be the "flavor of the day" to the temperamental media or cause a media frenzy like certain candidates do. However, highlighting hype is no substitute for substance, and substance is what we need more than ever in the Oval Office. We already know what voting for smoke and mirrors can get us: Obama.

One of the things I repeatedly tell people is: Vote your conviction even if it's not what's most popular, and rest assure that America's founders and God Himself back you because you're being true to who you are and what you believe.

I've wondered if Ronald Reagan himself could be elected in today's political environment. I would propose that Huckabee is actually more like Reagan than any other candidate, and I'm not alone.

In his article, "Is Huckabee the Next Reagan?," historian Dr. Timothy Stanley summarized Mike's uniqueness among the presidential candidates: "But none of these men has Huckabee's unique ability to speak through the television cameras and straight to the viewer at home. And, aside from Santorum, none of them has run for the nomination before. Republicans are typically cautious voters who encourage a candidate to run twice, or even thrice, before nominating them: … George H.W. Bush and Reagan were veterans of the presidential primaries. As such, Huckabee enters this race with a key asset: He's a conservative statesman. His history alone ought to guarantee him top-tier status."

Few knew Ronald Reagan better than Ed Rollins, who served in the administrations of Presidents Nixon, Ford and Reagan, including serving two tours of duty at the highest level of the White House as assistant to the president and White House political director. Rollins also served as the national campaign director to Ronald Reagan in the 1984 presidential election in which Reagan won 49 states.

Rollins described Huckabee in this way: "Gov. Huckabee has probably inspired me as much as Ronald Reagan … he can connect with ordinary voters. I was with the old Reagan and I can promise you this man comes as close as anyone to filling those shoes."

Mike truly is a first-class patriot and a renowned man of integrity. Our country can use his caliber of character in the White House, not only to help restore the Oval Office but also our nation.

In the end, whoever the American voters decide will be their choice for the Republican candidacy, I will certainly support and encourage others to do the same. Like I said, any of them will be good for our country. And it is only by rallying around that single GOP candidate that we are going to ensure the presidential win and restoration of our country.

Moriah Ettinger: Open Letter to the public on behalf of her husband.


English Translation of letter written by Moria Ettinger  Hebrew below, link above.
My Brothers and Sisters, Am Yisroel

An Open Letter to the Public: Written by Moria Ettinger,  the Wife of Meir Ettinger, now held  in Administrative Detention: 

The Way You Know Of My Husband Comes From Suppression Of True Discourse. The complete letter Moriah Ettinger, 17th day of Shvrat 5776,  01/27/16

Have you ever heard of Meir Ettinger?

Dangerous with horns?

Let me paint you another picture.

My husband, Meir Ettinger, is gentle, soft, shy and quiet. Entirely pleasant.

He is the person who helps all friends, finds a child lost to its mother on the street and listens to those who need.

He does not know how to yell or get angry, but above all, he is a Jew who seeks good for his people.

For all of his life, his money, his time,  his abilities and his honor, he has invested for the people of Israel.

He is a person who does not see himself at all but rather the community.

It's almost six months that he and two friends- Evyatar Slonim and Mordechai Meyer (who was released after five months in jail after it emerged that he was imprisoned due to misinformation) are in detention without trial, in solitary confinement in Beersheva. My husband was placed in the the most guarded wing in Israel, with absolute solitary confinement and severe restrictions. In adjacent cells to his are [Arab] terrorists who killed several Jews each.

The way you have gotten to know my husband has been the result of suppressing real debate that he is trying to create for our nation.

This silence is fear, a fear of words that are great and true.  This same fear is one that  has tried to silence all free thinkers who dared to go forward and lead our world to better places.

This is the same fear that silenced Harav Kook, the giants of Chasidus, Yair Stern and others. 

And this fear presents you with a picture of my husband,  a figure with horns, in order that you agree that this free spirit be shut in isolation behind bars, and so as not to  continue the dialogue between you and her.

Last Chanukah, when I lit Chanukah candles, all the neighbors came out as well.. they lit and proudly sang about the heroic and brave Maccabees. Everyone sang for these admired free thinkers. I looked you in the eye -  My husband is a Maccabee just like them.  Then why is he and his friends imprisoned, tortured and despised?

In another week, the administrative detention which put my husband in jail will end. The order for his detention will end, but the desire to silence the man who speaks gently, measures and weighs each word before he utters them, will not end. The man whom from every book of his that you will open in his  home, will drop scraps of paper in which are written densely packed reflections, parts of them songs/poems and thoughts of our Jewish life here.

I am writing you this letter in order to share with you reality
To ask not to believe everything you've heard about Meir.

The order is about to expire thank G-d, but they can extend it again, and it's up to us.

It will depend on us how long we agree to continue to legitimize the silence of the most severe violence of all. The violence against true Jewish dialogue.

That is the truth. This is not about him. This is us. How do we want our life to be.

And until you can meet him and talk to him, I invite you to read his blog on HaKol HaYehudi,  - and hear his ideas truly. Recognize the clear voice that wishes to invite Israeli discourse with real souls. It challenges us to new thinking, outside the box... I'm not unrealistic... I do not expect that after reading his blog, and be introduced to this, that you necessarily agree with all his ideas.

There could be disagreements between us on the road and even on some of the goals. But it is clear to me that none of you would accept Jews treating other Jews in this manner. 

We all want our government to take care of security and settlement and instead [the government] restricts Jews and abuses some of them.

I think once you get to know Meir, you will identify with his ideas, even if you do not agree with him, you will not be silent and you  will help me to  bring my husband home.

Login to the website, read his blogs, circulate this letter and sympathize with me on Facebook "Jews do not torture Jews". "יהודי לא מענה יהודי"

With Love of Israel, Moriah Ettinger

אחי ואחיותי, עם ישראל

אשתו של העצור המנהלי מאיר אטינגר במכתב גלוי לציבור: הצורה שבה אתם מכירים את בעלי היא תוצר של השתקה של השיח האמיתי. המכתב המלא
מוריה אטינגר, י"ז בשבט תשע"ו, 27/01/16 21:54

שמעתם פעם על מאיר אטינגר? 
המסוכן עם הקרניים?

תרשו לי לצייר לכם ציור אחר.
בעלי, מאיר אטינגר, הוא איש עדין, רך, ביישן ושקט. כולו נעימות. 
הוא האדם שעוזר לכל החברים, מוצא אמא לילד אבוד ברחוב ומקשיב למי שצריך. 
הוא לא יודע לצעוק או לכעוס, אך מעל הכל, הוא יהודי דורש טוב לעמו.
את כל החיים שלו, הכסף, הזמן, הכישרונות והכבוד שלו הוא משקיע בעם ישראל.
אדם שלא רואה את עצמו בכלל. רק את הכלל. 

כבר כמעט ששה חודשים הוא ושני חבריו- אביתר סלונים ומרדכי מאייר (ששוחרר לאחר חמשה חודשי מאסר לאחר שהתברר שנכלא עקב מידע מוטעה) יושבים במעצר מנהלי ללא משפט בבידוד בבאר שבע. בעלי נמצא באגף הכי שמור בארץ, בבידוד מוחלט והגבלות קשות. שותפיו לאגף בחדרים מצדדיו, הם מחבלים שרצחו כל אחד כמה יהודים.

הצורה שבה אתם מכירים את בעלי היא תוצר של השתקה של השיח האמיתי שהוא מנסה לייצר בעם שלנו. 
ההשתקה הזאת היא פחד, פחד מהדברים הגדולים באמת. אותו פחד שניסה להשתיק את כל ההוגים החופשיים שהעזו ללכת קדימה ולהוביל את העולם שלנו למקומות טובים יותר. 

זה אותו פחד שהשתיק את הרב קוק, גדולי החסידות, יאיר שטרן ואחרים. 
והפחד הזה הגיש לכם ציור של דמות עם קרניים, כדי שאתם תסכימו שהרוח החופשית הזאת תהיה סגורה בבידוד מאחורי סורג ובריח, ולא יימשך השיח בינכם לבינה.

בחנוכה האחרון כשהדלקתי נרות כל השכנים יצאו גם כן, הדליקו ושרו בגאווה למכבים הגיבורים והאמיצים, כולכם שרתם להוגים הללו בהערצה. הסתכלתי עליכם בעיניים כלות- הרי גם בעלי הוא מכבי כזה, אז למה הוא וחבריו כלואים מעונים ומבוזים?

עוד כשבוע, ייגמר המעצר המנהלי שהכניס את בעלי לכלא. הצו יגמר, אבל הרצון להשתיק את האיש שמדבר בעדינות, מודד ושוקל כל מילה לפני שמוציא מפיו, לא יפסק. האיש שמכל ספר שתפתחו בביתו ינשרו פיסות נייר כתובים צפוף צפוף בהם כתב הגיגים, חלקי שירים ומחשבות על החיים היהודיים שלנו פה.

כתבתי לכם את המכתב הזה על מנת לשתף אתכם באמת.
לבקש שלא תאמינו לכל מה ששמעתם על מאיר. 
תוקף הצו עומד להיגמר בעז"ה, אבל יש באפשרותם להאריך אותו שוב, וזה תלוי בנו.
זה תלוי בנו עד כמה תימשך הסכמת השתיקה והלגיטימציה שלנו לאלימות החמורה מכל.
אלימות נגד שיח יהודי אמיתי.
וזו האמת. לא מדובר בו. מדובר בנו. איך אנחנו רוצים שהחיים שלנו יראו.

ועד שתוכלו לפגוש בו ולשוחח איתו, אני מזמינה אתכם לקרוא את הבלוג שלו באתר הקול היהודי - ולשמוע את רעיונותיו באמת. להכיר את הקול הצלול שמבקש להזמין את עם ישראל לשיח נשמות אמיתי. זה מאתגר אותנו בחשיבה חדשה, מחוץ לקופסה. אני לא פתטית. אני לא חושבת שאחרי שתקראו את הבלוג שלו, ותוודעו לדמות הזו, אתם בהכרח תסכימו עם כל רעיונותיו.

יכול להיות שיש בינינו אי הסכמות על הדרך ואפילו על חלק מהמטרות. אבל ברור לי שאף אחד מכם לא מוכן שכך יהודים יתנהגו ליהודים.

כולנו רוצים שהשלטון שלנו ידאג לבטחון והתיישבות ובמקום זה הוא מגביל יהודים ומתעלל בחלק מהם. 
אני חושבת שאחרי שתכירו את מאיר, תזדהו עם הרעיונות שלו, גם אם לא תסכימו איתו. 
עכשיו אתם כבר לא תשתקו. אתם תעזרו לי להחזיר את בעלי הביתה. 
"יהודי לא מענה יהודי".
                                                                                         באהבת ישראל, מוריה אטינגר

Dear Sirs,

I come from Melbourne Australia and I am writing to you with a very sad and heavy heart.

Israel I have also thought was supposed to be a "Light to the Nations" but I am feeling very disillusioned upon learning that three young boys are being held under administrative detention without any charges or crimes or a fair trial being allowed with one on a hunger strike (Meir Ettinger) and two boys in solitary confinement (Meir David Chaim ben Tova and Evyatar Yisrael Eliyahu ben Gila Chana).

At a time gentleman when surely your focus should be on dealing with the daily terrorist attacks in Israel you seem to be doing all possible to put the blame on the "victims" rather than the "perpetrators". In my own simple way of looking at things I would say that the Duma affair is purely a diversion from the real issues you should be facing right now so why not give the boys a fair trial and open up an enquiry also into the Duma affair as from what I can see this appears to be a frame up by Shabbak and how can you three gentleman stand by and see and allow the torture by Shabbak of young boys?...... and surely any confessions they give under torture must be "null and void"

Please release the boys and give them a fair and open trial!

I would like to make the three of you aware of an amazing plan to create peace in Israel simply by following a Torah approach which we call the "Biblical Path to Peace" where Jew and non-Jew can live peacefully side by side in co-existence when the non Jew simply agrees to abide by the 7 basic laws of humanity the "Noahide Laws"....please take a few minutes to watch our video which simply describes our project and which has had over 10,000 You Tube views.

Horaat Shaah. Call to the Chareidi community. Call to Rabbanim, Pidyon Shvuyim,Pikuach Nefesh. What you can do to help Meir Ettinger and Evyater Slonim held under Administrative Detention in Israel. Urgent plea for influential Rabbanim and Lawyers to speak up. Thank you!


Dear Fellow Jew:

Please pass on to your Rav. Let us all try to help according to our ability.Thank you!  

I have embedded texts of links into this email in case you or your Rav does not use internet access and only has email as is the case of many in the Chareidi camp.   Have in mind MEIR DAVID CHAI ben TOVA  and EVYATAR YISRAEL ELIYAHU ben GILA CHANA. 


Meir Ettinger and Evyatar Slonim have been held in solitary confinement surrounded by Arab terrorists. 

The Israeli government has not charged them with any crime. 

The six months are up next week, and there is great concern that Minister of Defense Ya'alon will renew their imprisonment for another six months without charging them with any crime. 

Evyatar's mother, Gila Slonim, sent out a plea to women to be mafrish challah as a zechut for the release of Evyatar and Meir. She also asks that you include them in your tefillot. 


If you are able to join in baking challot this week in their merit, please do so. Please let Mrs. Slonim know that you are doing so at

Finally, please take a few moments to write an email to Prime Minister Netanyahu, Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon, and President Reuven Rivlin asking them to either charge Meir and Evyatar with a crime and give them a fair trial, or let them free. 

Here are their email addresses: 

Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu   and

President Reuven Rivlin
President Reuven Rivlin. Fax: 972-2-588-7225.

May we merit Hashem' great yeshuot.




My grandson Is in danger

Administrative detention can be renewed forever. Libby Kahane

Op-Ed: My grandson is in danger

Administrative detention can be renewed forever.

Published: Sunday, January 24, 2016 9:50 PM

Libby Kahane

The imprisonment of my grandson Meir Ettinger brings back difficult memories for me. I don't know how many people remember that my late husband Rabbi Meir Kahane, zt"l was jailed under those same despicable administrative detention orders in May 1980.

An administrative detention order deprives a person of his basic rights. He can be held for six months without being charged or tried and the order can be renewed indefinitely.

Simply put, the powers-that-be don't like the way he thinks.
If there were any evidence that my grandson Meir committed a crime, he should be put on trial in an open court. He has not been tried in court because he has not committed any crime.

What he has done is not considered a crime in any democratic country. He expressed unpopular views in a blog he wrote on the Hebrew website "Hakol Hayehudi." Simply put, the powers-that-be don't like the way he thinks.

When his case came to court for review after his first three months in prison, the judge ordered his imprisonment continued. The reason he gave was that Meir had not changed his views. The Honenu lawyer said, "If the judge wants him to change his opinions, he can send him to Korea, there they know how to make people change their opinions."

The administrative order imprisoning Meir can be renewed by the simple signature of the Minister of Defense for another six months, and another and another – life imprisonment by installments.

Is Israel turning into a totalitarian state? What is happening to our beloved Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East?

With two weeks left of the six months decreed by the Minister of Defense Yaalon, my grandson Meir began a hunger strike on Wednesday, January 20. I hope and pray it will succeed in touching the hearts of the powers that be, but I am concerned about the harm to his health
Please plead for Meir Ettinger's immediate freedom. It takes only the signature of the Minister of Defense Moshe Yaalon to decide Meir's future:

Send emails and faxes to Minister Yaalon, Fax: 972-2-5303506. Email:

Your pleas to the Prime Minister and the President will help too:

President Reuven Rivlin. Fax: 972-2-588-7225. Email:


Rabbanim, amv"sh

We were told that if influential Rabbanim and Lawyers especially from Chutz LeAretz would write a letter it would make a difference as per whether Meir Ettinger will be placed under administrative detention for another 6 months.  It was reported that he has gone on a hunger strike and as of Tuesday was unconscious and was receiving medical support. 

Rabbanim,  Please read Meir Ettinger's words below and see if he indeed is a terrorist.  It is a matter of Pikuach Nefesh and Pidyon Shvuyim. 

I remember reviewing Perek Hakones in Baba Kama with my 10 year old son when he started Gemorah

If a person has testimony and withholds it then they are indirectly responsible Chayav Beyedei Shamayim. Grama. If this is true about monetary damages incurred because someone failed to testify on someone's behalf, surely it is true for not testifying to stop someone from being incarcerated. 

Can't the Rabbanim testify as experts that according to Jewish Law, Administrative Detention as has been practiced against Jews, holding someone without charges or a trial and taking away their civil rights and inflicting them with  physical and emotional abuse is wrong. It has been public knowledge that this has been the case against many hilltop youth some of them minors.   Meir Ettinger and Evyatar Slonim have gone on a hunger strike protest. Meir Ettinger, Rav Meir Kahana's hy"d grandson is considered a leader of the hilltop youth and is targeted and framed as being especially dangerous  (Apparently lawyers have reported that torture was conducted against suspects of the Duma arson Amiram Ben- Uliel and Elisha Odess a minor who turned 18, both sons of Rabbeim, which led to their forced confessions and incarceration before an actual trial was held,  and the forced confession was the only evidence police have). It has been reported that their trial is scheduled to be conducted privately, not open to the public...



Meir Ettinger's words to the Court: In the end you will repent  


The following are the words of Meir Ettinger said during his hearing on Sep. 10th, 2015. This hearing was the third and final hearing that the court will hear before officially approving his administrative detention. It is important to note that receiving the approval of the court is a mere formality for administrative detention and does not involve an actual trial.

I would like to speak before the court and have my words recorded in the minutes. At the same time, I reiterate that this is not because I recognize the authority of this court. I don't recognize the validity of laws that are against the Torah and I see no reason to defend myself against accusations based on false laws that were created by man today and will be changed by him tomorrow.

Rather, because of our sins, instead of having a court based on the holy Torah, the word of G-d, we have been taken captive by false courts. These captors are the prosecution, the media, and the false courts of today that have waged war against the land of Israel, the Torah of Israel, and those who fear the G-d of Israel. Their goal is to foster the growth of a foreign culture in our midst to replace the way of the Torah and service to G-d in the land of Israel.

It is therefore a Chazakah [predetermined]what this court will decide in this hearing. One way or another, the results are known in advance and I therefore have no desire to play a part in this game. It is merely a pathetic attempt by the government to pretend that their decision is based on justice and democracy. 

Nonetheless, this hearing provides me the right to speak and I will exercise the right to tell you what bothers you so much, what you are fighting, and what was the reason for my arrest.

I cannot discuss in this short time all of the ridiculous media stories. According to the media, I am somehow the number one target of the Shabak.

It should be noted that the targets of the Shabak are not established in order to preserve public safety or ensure calm, but instead are based on a political agenda and focus on protecting the culture of 'equality' that they force down the throats of the public.

Therefore, instead of discussing 'public safety,' I will explain my activism and why my actions are so upsetting to the confused establishment.

In their accusations they used the phrase, "changing the regime." So what does that really mean? What exactly is this mysterious 'group,' which I supposedly lead, doing to further that goal? The truth is that we are dealing with very basic statements that were made freely available to all. Yes, I admit it- I, like many other Jews, have dreams, hopes and desires of establishing the Kingdom of Israel. The 'group' I am a part of, was founded during the exodus from Egypt and the receiving of the Torah on Mount Sinai. There the Jewish people were chosen to be a nation of priests and a holy people in the land of Israel.

So what is this 'Kingdom of Israel'? For 2000 years in exile, Jews around the world said in their prayers "Let me witness the return to Zion" and concluded with the words, "blessed is He who restores His glory to Zion." These Jews did not merely want to return to the land of Israel to build fields and buildings. They wanted more. They wanted to restore G-d's presence in the land by creating a state that would spread the name of G-d throughout the world.

In the current 'Jewish' state, there is complete democratic freedom for all sorts of crazy ideas, except for Judaism alone which is declared illegal. In Israel today, the Torah's solution to security problems is racist, the Torah's views on international relations are incitement, and anyone who supports the Torah's opinion over the laws of the state is an anarchist. Those who struggle with love for the land of Israel are arrested and their homes are destroyed.

In the State of Israel today we have leaders who do not understand the Torah and no one dares explain to them what a true Jewish state looks like, why the Jewish people to the land of Israel, and what right the Jewish people have to the land. Not only are we victims of this unfortunate situation, but you are too- you, the judge, and the prosecutor. All of us are captives of this reality. Each of us has a G-dly soul that wants to live a Jewish life and we all feel alone in our opposition to the state.

Administrative detention orders were issued against me and other Jews not because of a concern for the good of the public as you [the government]have claimed. It is actually you who place no value on Jewish blood and thereby harm the public. You released terrorist murderers and removed checkpoints, both of which have placed many Jews in danger. One could hardly accuse you of caring for other Jews.

We all know that the incident in Duma is merely being used as an excuse for dictatorial actions by a supposed democratic government. Fortunately for you, the public is so accustomed to your lies that they don't bother refuting them.

Not for nothing did you gather all of the media to inform them before carrying out the orders. In truth the administrative detention orders are not meant to silence me, but to silence yourselves, to silence the Jewish voice emanating from your heart.

Your hysterical actions and discrimination against Jews in enforcing the law, your shocking neglect for the values of democracy when dealing with Jews who love the land of Israel, appears strange to many people. However it is not strange to anyone who recognizes that these actions are done in order to silence your inner, yearning Jewish voice. This is part of your general schizophrenia.  It is obvious that these actions will backfire and have the opposite result. You will not manage to silence the voice inside you, anymore than you could expel your Jewish soul from your body. In the end, even you will repent for your actions and your Jewish soul will take over to help bring the redemption.


The Deep Freeze of Liberty: By Moshe Feiglin

The daily news in Israel has distracted us from the icy winds that have put our liberty into deep freeze. "Why hasn't anybody been arrested?"cried the media. "Jewish terror! Jewish terror!" And the Defense Minister felt the pressure. After all, they will not allow him to evade an issue like 'Jewish terror'.

There are no proofs. But what are human rights in the face of the collective, personified by the media?

Suddenly, it is fine to arrest citizens for no apparent reason, with no trial, no attorney and ultimately – no indictment.

It would be easy for us to think that they know what they are doing. After all, it cannot be that in the State of Israel people will be arrested for no apparent reason…

The Defense Minister clearly knew that the detainees had no connection to the Duma crime but at least it looked like he was doing something. And so, two Jews were put into administrative detention. Of course, the investigation made no progress, so they arrested a few more suspects.

This time, they were minors. This time, not only did they not allow them to meet with an attorney, but they tortured them, as well. And they tortured, and tortured and tortured. Until they confessed and reenacted the 'crime' – as is accepted practice in 'enlightened' regimes.

How could such a thing take place in a democratic state?

Perhaps because they had those frightening side locks. Democracy does not apply to those extremists. And if you think that the elected representatives of the arrested boys would speak out in their defense, you can think again.

Every two hours and thirty three minutes, on average, an attempt to murder a Jew because of his Jewishness is made in Israel. "We are strong," the Prime Minister explains. "This will not break us."

But the foolish murder of an Arab family; a murder that nobody knows – and nobody will ever know – by whom it was perpetrated, will "destroy the entire State."  It will "bring the roof down on our heads," in the words of the elected leader of the Religious Zionists. And in the name of the State, it is good that they are torturing the minors…

That is how the media personalities, the witch hunters, the leftist DNA of the Defense Minister and the pseudo-fascist deviation of the Religious Zionist minister, who exchanged, "I am G-d" for "I am the State" –  joined together to negate any semblance of human rights from minors. This was done not only to prevent them from meeting with an attorney and to justify their torture and every other despicable act committed against them, but to completely ostracize them from any possible public support, as well. Who will come to their defense now, when their political father stands against them?

Half of the detainees who were tortured were released with no indictment. These boys, abducted by the State and afforded no rights or trial, were severely tortured. Their souls were crushed. And then they were released. They are walking indictments of the Israeli justice system.

Did you think that it would stop with the Right? In no time, it spread to the Left.  Channel 2 did an expose' on "human rights activist" Ezra Nawi, who bragged about delivering Arabs who sold homes or land to Jews to their Arab executioners.

Not that the Police or the GSS were not aware of his activities before the television broadcast. They were. But once again, we see that the Police and the GSS work for the media. They scurried to arrest radical Nawi and wonder of wonders – also prevented him from meeting with an attorney. Was he a 'ticking bomb'? Why didn't they allow him to meet with an attorney? Because now they can.

When we allow the State to steal a bit of our liberty, it will always – always – do it. Why? Because it can. And it will always be in the interest of 'security'.

They have to take all of our fingerprints and keep them in order to produce biometric identity cards. For security reasons. It makes no difference that the same results can be achieved without a biometric database. But you are a law abiding citizen and will never have a brush with the law, so what difference does it make to you?

And they arrest tens of thousands of marijuana consumers who don't hurt anyone. For security reasons, of course. For no reason, really. Just because they can. But you don't smoke marijuana, so what difference does it make to you?

And they have to put Arabs into administrative detention. For security reasons, of course. Because we really are in a war with them. But it does not concern you, because it will never happen to you.

And Zadarov, accused of murdering a school girl, has been in jail for ten years. But no matter that there is substantial evidence that points to his innocence. Because it will never happen to you, anyway.

And through this small hole and that tiny gap, which never seem to threaten you – the icy winds enter. And before you even notice it, the deep freeze of liberty reaches you. If not today, then tomorrow. It doesn't matter if you are a rightist or a leftist.

When a police officer will beat you or simply subject you to a humiliating body search…

When you hear the knock on the door and are taken off to interrogation…

And you don't understand how it happened to you…

And then you remember that yes, you did have unkind words for the prime minister while waiting at the grocery check-out.

And somebody thought that it would be patriotic to snitch on you. So that the roof does not cave in on us all…

When more political parties will not be allowed to run in the elections. Not just from the Right. It will be because you remained silent now.

Next week, the half year of administrative detention for Meir Ettinger and Evyatar Slonim, arrested after the murders in Duma, will be up. Of course, they were never indicted. Nobody even attempted to claim that they were connected to the murders in Duma. It is reasonable to assume that the Defense Minister will pressure the justice system to leave them in jail.

Why? Because now it is possible.

After all, if they are released, people will ask some hard questions. Why were they arrested in the first place? And after the "State above all" speech of the head of the Religious Zionists, no real opposition to their continued detention can be expected.

So why not?

Because when you open the window for the icy wind, it enters. Simply because it can.

It's time to wake up and let the sun of liberty shine in.

 Uniting Chareidim with Dati Leumi


In response to the Har Nof Massacre, according to Rabbi Daniel Travis, HaRav Sternbuch, Posek HaDor said that such tragedies do not come in a vacuum and that we must be introspective. If we go beKeri with Hashem, in happenstance, then so will Hashem go beKeri with us.  


One of the Tikkunim Rav Sternbuch mentioned was to end Machlokes.   


My deepest hope is that Chareidi Rabbanim express solidarity with the Dati Leumi community, and voice their concern and protest on behalf of Meir Ettinger and Evyatar Slonim who are imprisoned under dangerous conditions as well as the other hilltop youth.   Surely it would help to unite two religious yet diverse communities who are Shomrei Torah UMitzvoth! The Chareidi community whose emphasis is on keeping Kedusha within the camp and the Dati Leumi community whose emphasis is reaching the actualization of the Mitzvoth of the Torah in Eretz Yisroel. They might seem like conflicting paradigms but indeed they are merely different perspectives which can be reconciled. 


Dear Chareidim.  This requires education and an open mind on your part. Don't simply rely on what people are saying, Dibah Raah, about Meir Ettinger and on the hilltop youth. 


Is Meir Ettinger worthy of nonstop Administrative Detention and does he indeed pose a threat to the people of Israel.   


 Agreed that his call for a Torah rule of law does pose a threat to the existing non Torah court system.


Rabbi Daniel Travis from Har Nof in his recent lecture in the Agudah of Madison in Brooklyn, in Rabbi Reisman's shul, mentioned that there is a Mishne which says that Eliyahu comes when we do whatever we can. He quoted Rabbeinu Efraim which says that Hashem demands we do actions to bring Moshiach.  Rabbi Travis emphasized that according to the Gedolim the most important thing is Ichpatiyut, which means that we feel the pain of our fellow Jew and connect with their suffering and empathize with what is going on. He also emphasized the need to strengthen our Emunah. 


 I see here an opportunity for Chareidi Rabbanim  to end Machlokes and show how true unity can be accomplished. 


The court system in Eretz Yisroel is not the way it should be.  Meir Ettinger and the hilltop youth are trying to change the status quo.  But they are bearing the brunt of the struggle on their own. Some of them minors. Literally tortured. It is too much to bear.  Hashem would love to send His Tzivos Hashem to their aid, to answer their prayers, but Am Yisroel needs to be worthy. What are their prayers? Please read Meir Ettinger's words above. They are consistent with the words of Rabbi Sorotzkin's call to Teshuva the Tikun to end the Galus. . 
Hamonei Am needs to truly desire Hashem's Kingship over the world, the reinstatement of Malchus Beis David, and the renewal of the Avoda in the Beis Hamikdash.  


 Rabbanim have in their power to inspire Teshuva and bring Hamonei Am to a level of yearning for these lofty goals of generations of tears and prayer.  Meir Ettinger and his followers aspire for all these things yet he and the Hilltop Youth are being blood libeled, slandered and persecuted.

Rabbi Sorotzkin Teshuva - Tikun of ending the Golus - yearn for recognition of G-d's Kingdom, yearn for Davidic Kingdom and yearn for return of Temple Service. Msg following Har Nof Massacre

Rabbi Yitzchok Sorotzkin's Stop the Talking campaign going around, to encourage people to stop talking in shul leads us to a Yalkut Shimoni which describes how Am Yisroel must do Teshuva to dispel the prosecutors up in Heaven. 

Rav Sorotzkin ends his talk describing a scene where all the Tzadikim righteous souls are defending Israel saying how much Chesed, kindness the People of Israel do and how many Mitzvoth they do etc. yet it is not enough... 

He then brings down a Yalkut Shimoni that there are three things that Israel despised 
Maasu B'malchut Shamayim They despised the Kingdom of Heaven
not machshiv Beis Dovid       and the Davidic Kingdom
Ubibinyan Beis Hamikdash    and the building of the Beis Hamikdash.

and until there is a Tikkun on these three things, we won't be zocheh to leave this Galus. 

Let us elaborate...

Maasu B'Malchut Shamayim.  Despising the kingdom of heaven...

We remember the Malchut Shamayim on Rosh Hashana in Malchiyut.  We pray that all the Nations of the world will recognize Hashem and His Kingship.  For that we need to be willing to take a leadership position in the world.  Har Habayit is the key for this to happen.  The Nations of the world will stream to Jerusalem and bring gifts to Hashem.

 Isaiah Chapter 2

1. The word that Isaiah, son of Amoz, prophesied concerning Judah and Jerusalem.   2. And it shall be at the end of the days, that the Mountain of the Lord's House shall be firmly established at the top of the mountains, and it shall be raised above the hills, and all the nations shall stream to it.   3. And many peoples shall go, and they shall say, "Come, let us go up to the Lord's mount, to the House of the God of Jacob, and let Him teach us of His ways, and we will go in His paths," for out of Zion shall the Torah come forth, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.   4. And he shall judge between the nations and reprove many peoples, and they shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift the sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.   5. "O house of Jacob, come and let us go in the light of the Lord."

 Isaiah 11:9  "They will neither harm nor destroy on all My holy mountain, for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as water covers the sea"

We need to be Mevakesh these three items as it says in Hoshea 3:5

ה. אַחַר יָשֻׁבוּ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל וּבִקְשׁוּ אֶת יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֵיהֶם וְאֵת דָּוִיד מַלְכָּם וּפָחֲדוּ אֶל יְהֹוָה וְאֶל טוּבוֹ בְּאַחֲרִית הַיָּמִים:
5. Afterwards shall the children of Israel return, and seek the Lord their God and David their king, and they shall come trembling to the Lord and to His goodness at the end of days.

Achar  Yashvu Bnei Yisroel, if Bnei Yisroel will return once again, 
Uvikshu es Hashem Elokeychem.  They will ask for Hashem their G-d.  (This is Malchut Shamayim)
Ves Dovid Malchum  They will ask for the Kingdom of David
Upachado as Tuvam, they will want His goodness, this is the Beis Hamikdash.

Hoshea   tells us the importance of understanding the Chashivos (great importance) of 

Chashivus Malchus Shamayim
Chashivus Malchus Beis Dovid
Chashivos Malchus Mikdash

Yerushalyim Ircha BeRachamim Tashuv.

My comments: 

Surely one can not imagine that in Har Nof there was lack of decorum, among those brutally murdered....  

Hoshea may be the key to better understand why this tragedy happened. 

The key is Unity of Am Yisroel so much noted by the parents of those recently sacrificed namely the parents of the 3 boys and the family members of the Har Nof massacre and the Father of the Sassoon family. 

Let me suggest the following:

  • The Secular yearn for a Malchus Shamayim.  A Jewish Kingdom where Israel is involved in Tikkun Olam and being a light onto the Nations.
  • The Chareidim yearn be be Holy and separate.
When there is appreciation between the Secular and Chareidi Jews of the value of each others yearning, to be a Kingdom of Priests, a Holy Nation serving the Nations of the World then we will be deserving of dissipating our enemies without war and without human sacrifice. 

Let us yearn for the return o the Davidic Kingdom and the return of the Temple and the Holy Sacrifices where Israel will be known far and wide as a Mamlechet Kohanim veGoy Kadosh a Kingdom of Priests and a Holy Nation..

So let us get back to our original discussion about the required Action Item to help Meir Ettinger and Evyatar Slonim.  If influential Rabbanim, (and which Rav isn't an influential person?) would make a statement protesting unwarranted Administrative Detention against righteous Jews it would make the news big time and there would be an outcry by the masses. Even if it is only Hashem that hears their testimony, and I hope that this is not the case and the government of Israel will take note as well, at least they won't be held accountable chas veshalom,G-d forbid,  for their silence in a Heavenly Court. 

Shabbat Shalom UmeVorach and Thank you for listening

Fwd: Police State or Democracy? Bring Meir Ettinger and Eviatar Slonim to Trial for a Crime or Set Them Free!

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: <>

Subject: Police State or Democracy?

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu 
President Reuven Rivlin
Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon

Honorable Knesset members;

The Prime Minister holds the buck as the expression goes "The buck stops here!" 
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu: Fax 972-2-6703398. Email:    Best e-mail: 
Please write individually written letters to PM Netanyahu...the more the better.

 It takes only the signature of the Minister of Defense Moshe Yaalon to decide Meir's future:
Send emails and faxes to Minister Yaalon, Fax: 972-2-5303506. Email:

Your pleas to the  President will help too:    
President Reuven Rivlin. Fax: 972-2-588-7225. Email:

This letter in on behalf of two Jewish citizens of Israel who are currently being held in solitary confinement under administrative detention. 

Their names are Eviatar Slonim and Meir Ettinger. They are on a hunger strike. 

What is their crime? 
The State of Israel has no evidence that these prisoners have committed any crime. 

In one week, the administrative detention of both Ettinger and Slonim will be over. However, there is great concern that Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon will sign an order to extend their detention for another six months,  without presenting evidence that they have committed any crime.  

What is the reason that the State of Israel is holding these young men like criminals in solitary confinement together with Arab terrorists who threaten to kill them? 

The Israeli government does not agree with their ideology.  

Honorable Prime Minister Netanyahu, President Rivlin, Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon, and Knesset members:  only repressive police states hold citizens without a trial or evidence of any wrongdoing  because they don't like how they think. 
The judge ordered Meir Ettinger's continued imprisonment because "he has not changed his views." 

Decent people, Jews and non Jews from all over the world demand: 
Bring Meir Ettinger and Eviatar Slonim to trial for a crime, or set them free!

Some Israeli government officials argue that the Israeli government is within its bounds to keep these boys in jail, because it is within the law in Israel to do so. 

The response to that is that every country has laws. 
Communist Russia had laws legalizing the murder millions of "dissidents" in the Gulag. 
North Korea has laws legalizing torture of dissidents in large concentration camps.   

Just because something is the law, does not make it ethical.  

The State of Israel should not have laws legalizing the imprisonment of citizens without evidence of any prosecutable crime. 

Bring Meir Ettinger and Eviatar Slonim to trial, or set them free!
