Yeshacide: The treachery of the Yesha Council

David Bedein, community organizer and investigative reporter.

Home demolitions at Netiv Avot represent an affront to the people of Israel, not only to  13 familes whose homes are being destroyed because of minor housing infractions. 

These families w
ill get new homes.  

Yet as in the case of Amonah, where beautiful homes were replaced by small houses not comparable to the homes that the people were force out of, 
 suffering that families go through is not to be underestimated.  

When you build a home, your heart goes into it. 

When a bulldozer destroys it for no reason, part of you goes with it. 

The Bagatz bulldozer is set to destroy another 4000 homes

And that hurts all the more.

This is an issue that could unite all of Am Yisrael.

Arbitrary injustice of the Bagatz, The Israel High Court of Justice, affects every nook and cranny of the land of Israel, not only in Judea and Samaria. 

However, Yesha Council limited  protests  against Netiv Avot and will only mobilize only Israel National Religious camp - 10% of the population in Israel, in the same way that Yesha confined protests over the injustice done to Migron and Amona to a fraction of the people of Israel.

The real issues of injustice behind  the expulsions from Netiv Avot, Migron and Amona remain a secret from Am Yisrael.

Yesha rallies for Netiv Avot, Migron and Amona would not allow 
 anyone to appear unless they were residents of Yesha

With only a  few exceptions, Yesha would not take out ads in promiment newspapers in Israel. 

Instead, Yesha hired a PR man who  retained by the Makor Rishon newspaper. That is where Yesha placed itsads, in addition to Shabbat weeklies that the national religious camp reads before Musaf. 

And the wife of that PR man works for the Prime Minister's office.

Consequently, Yesha did not put any pressure on the Prime Minister, who with a stroke of a pen could stop any action like this.

Instead,  Yesha placed ads and signs about Netiv Avot, Migron and Amona which  declaring that the expulsions are going to happen, a fait accompli, instead of organizing pressure on the PM to not implement an immoral decision of the Israel High Court of Justice. That must have made the wife of the Yesha PR man very happy.

As these words are written, hundreds pray against the demolition of Netiv Avot at the site of Netiv Avot, instead of making a massive last ditch effort to appeal 
people from all over Israel to ask the Prime Minister of Israel not 
​to ​
implement an immoral decision of the Israel High Court of Justice. 

The effect of 1000 calls to the PMO cannot be underestimated.

What influences a public official - calls to God or calls from around the country to change policy

We Jews do not believe in Deus ex machina,  divine intervention which will save Am Yisrael. 

We Jews in this generation of restoring Israel to our land do what we can on earth, with God's implicit blessing.

Now that the campaigns for  Netiv Avot, Migron and Amona have failed, the time has come to demand the resignation of the Yesha council, and cut off of their funds.

Yesha Council chooses not to mobilize people of Israel to help  4,000 more families whose homes will otherwise face the chopping block.

We call that Yeshacide.
