One Rav responded to a previous call to action...
"I do not want to start a project with other rabbis that will end up with dozens of hours haggling over words, phrases, you can't say this or that."
...See Gittin 56, which states, "Because of the humility of Rabbi Zecharya ben Avkulas, the Beit Hamikdash was destroyed."
Now is not the time to be humble.
I hear the frustration and fear.
Let's examine and address what Rabbonim and Orthodox Community Leaders are afraid of.
Defecting en masse is risky and putting lots of energy into such an effort might be a Bracha Levatala, a waste of time.
Even more worrisome is that it will generate a terrible backlash...from significant cuts in funding for many worthy projects and cuts for day to day operations of our organizations, loss of parnassa for many, loss of benefits, etc.... to increased antisemitism, and probably all the above.
A waste of time? I don't think so. Hashem sees our efforts.
A backlash? Very likely.
We see the worrisome repercussions happening in Boro Park and Flatbush. Maybe we are reaping what we have sown and it's under the bridge, or is it...? We can change direction!
Moshe Rabbeinu complained to Hashem "Lama Hareosa?" Why have you made matters worse?
Shemot - Exodus - Chapter 5, see Rashi
כב וַיָּ֧שָׁב משֶׁ֛ה אֶל־יְהֹוָ֖ה וַיֹּאמַ֑ר אֲדֹנָ֗י לָמָ֤ה הֲרֵעֹ֨תָה֙ לָעָ֣ם הַזֶּ֔ה לָ֥מָּה זֶּ֖ה
22 So Moses returned to the Lord and said, "O Lord! Why have You harmed this people? Why have You sent me?
Show Rashi's Commentary verse 6:
ורבותינו דרשוהו לענין של מעלה, שאמר משה (לעיל ה כב) למה הרעותה, אמר לו הקב"ה חבל על דאבדין ולא משתכחין Moses said [verse 22], “Why have You harmed…?” (Exod. 5:22). The Holy One, blessed be He, said to him, “We suffer a great loss for those [the Patriarchs] who are lost and [whose replacement] cannot be found. I must lament the death of the Patriarchs.
At this point, not to speak up seems to be the higher risk option. We are becoming enslaved to the point of no return under Democrat governance, with social media and mainstream media taking away our freedom to express ourselves, freedom to practice religion etc. and their values are a Chillul Hashem, a desecration of G-d's name. Like all risks, if we win this one, the windfall for the Republican party across the State would be enormous and it hopefully would put G-d and G-dliness on Trump's side and strengthen America.
Frankly, many are afraid that even if President Trump does win, it won't be decisive and will be contested. Rav Shmuel Eliyahu: It’s Forbidden For A Rabbi To Remain Silent
"...The Children of Israel were hit with a plague when they didn’t want to enter the Land of Israel during the time of the Spies, when they began to sin with the idolatrous daughters of Midian, and when they didn’t immediately set out to build the Beit HaMikdash in the days of King David.
Likewise, in our day and age, we have to rise up to a new level, and as long as we don’t, the corona plague, or some other, won’t let us rest."
I attribute the uncertainty of our times and the Pandemic to the "Deal of the Century" and the "Abrahamic Accords." Please read.William Koenig - Pattern Consequences of Dividing Israel is followed by Disaster. Pandemic Follows "Deal of the Century"
Only G-d can help President Trump with a decisive victory and there are infinite scenarios, clearly G-d driven or ones we can blame on others, that are downright scary.
Doing what is good and proper in Hashem's eyes is the key for good tidings!
כח ושמעת את כל הדברים האלה אשר אנכי מצוך למען ייטב לך ולבניך אחריך עד עולם כי תעשה הטוב והישר בעיני יהוה אלהיך
28 Keep and hearken to all these words that I command you, that it may benefit you and your children after you, forever, when you do what is good and proper in the eyes of the Lord, your God.
If Jews denounce and discredit the Democrats en masse, meaning getting Chaim Deutsch, Kalman Yeger, Simcha Eichenstein, Simcha Felder to defect with the approval, Haskama of as many Rabbanim as we can unite, it would be a tremendous Kiddush Hashem, sanctification of G-d's name, and would reverberate across the Nation that the Democrats are an illegitimate party and we can't register or be a part of an immoral, unG-dly, unAmerican treasonous party. The Democratic party of 2020 is treasonous in that it rejects the American premise of "one nation under G-d" and the Judeo-Christian values of this great Nation whose foundation principles are the 7 Noahide Laws. Instead this treasonous party advocates cancel culture and nullification of G-dliness that is etched on our dollar "In G-d We Trust". Destruction of the economy, progressive socialism is their agenda.
Our collective statement might be the straw to tip the scale in Trump's favor.

ארץ ישראל שייכת לכל עם ישראל"הנה כל ארץ ישראל ניתנה לבני ישראל בברית בין הבתרים - 'ברית עולם', וניתנה לבני ישראל מ'אלוקי עולם' באופן ד'נחלת עולם'. ועל פי זה מובן שאין ביכולת אף אחד לשנות עניין זה. ואפילו אם נמצא מישהו מבני ישראל שמוכן ורוצה לתת חלקים מארץ ישראל לאינם יהודים - מובן בפשטות שאין הדבר ביכולתו כלל, מאחר שארץ ישראל שייכת לכל בני ישראל במשך כל הדורות, ולכן אין ביכולתו להתנהג כבעל הבית ולהחזיר אפילו שעל מארץ ישראל לאינם יהודים, כי אין הדבר ברשותו. והנהגה זו (לתת למישהו דבר שאינו ברשותו) היא
הפך הצדק והיושר לגמרי.
The Land of Israel belongs to all of the people of Israel"Here the entire Land of Israel was given to the children of Israel in the Brit Bein Habesarim . The Covenant G-d made with Abraham. - 'An Everlasting Covenant', and was given to the Children of Israel from 'the God of the World' as an 'Eternal Inheritance'. And according to this it is understood that no one can change this matter. Even if there is someone willing to give parts of the Land of Israel to non-Jews - of course it is not in his capacity at all, since the Land of Israel belongs to all the Children of Israel for all generations, and therefore he can not act as landlord and return even a small parcel of the Land of Israel to non-Jews, because he does not own it. And this practice to give away something one does not own, is the opposite of everything that is righteous and just.
ובפרט כאשר מדובר אודות חלקים בארץ ישראל שניתנו מהקב"ה לבני ישראל באופן של מתנה, בסבר פנים יפות, בחסד חינם, ומתוך ניסים גלויים (ולא מצד 'כוחי ועוצם ידי'), הרי חס ושלום לבעוט במתנתו של הקב"ה, ולהחזיר חלקים מארץ ישראל לאינם יהודים רחמנא ליצלן..." (משיחת י'
And especially when it comes to parts of the Land of Israel given from G-d to the children of Israel in the form of a gift, with kindness, graciously, and by open miracles (and not by 'my power and by the might of my hand'), Heaven forbid to kick G-ds gift, and give parts of the Land of Israel to non-Jews, Hashem have mercy on us ... "(from the 10th of Tevet 5742)טבת תשמ"ב).
כיצד ליישב את הארץ
How to settle the Land"כדי להביא דבר זה ("לזרעך נתתי את הארץ הזאת") לידי גילוי, נדרש שיהיה "קום התהלך בארץ לארכה ולרחבה" - ליישב כל שטחי ארץ ישראל, ובייחוד אותם שטחים שישנם מערערים עליהם. ועל התיישבות זו להיות באותו אופן כמו שהיה אצל אברהם אבינו (שמעשה אבות סימן לבנים), שבבואו ובהתהלכו בארץ ישראל הנה "ויבן שם מזבח לה' וגו'" - דהיינו, להקים בכל אותם המקומות מקום תורה ומקום תפילה, וכן מקווה טהרה... ופשיטא שלא להזמין ח"ו לחץ מצד אומות העולם, על ידי ההנהגה המוזרה של התיישבות בנקודות ספורות מסוימות. על ידי הנהגה כזו מראים שמתחשבים בטענת המערערים, ואין שום סברא בשכל ובמציאות לחלק בין נקודות ספורות אלו לכל השאר - שכן אותו "רגשו גוים" ו"יהגו" (מחאות מאומות העולם) קיים כשמתיישבים בנקודות ספורות או כשמיישבים את כל אורך הגבול וכל השטחים....
In order to bring this Promise ("I gave this Land to your seed") into actualization, it is necessary to fulfill "Come and walk in the land far and wide" - to settle all the territories of the Land of Israel, and especially those territories that are disputed. And this kind of settling must be the same as Abraham, our Forefather (whose deeds are a lesson to his children and to their children), who came and walked in the Land of Israel as it says "and he built an altar there to G-d etc"  - that is, to establish in all those places a place of Torah and a place of prayer, as well as a Mikva a ritual bath of purity ... , Simply, not to, G-d Forbid, invite pressure from Nations of the World and act as do strange leadership on Settlement matters on certain areas. By such leadership it is shown that the disputer's claim is taken into consideration, as there is no logical or sane explanation in reality to differentiate between these select areas of settlement with the rest of the Land along its borders and territories since as it says in Tehillim chapter 2
א לָמָּה רָֽגְשׁ֣וּ גוֹיִ֑ם וּ֜לְאֻמִּ֗ים יֶהְגּוּ־רִֽיק: רָֽגְשׁ֣וּ גוֹיִ֑ם,
"Gentile feelings" and יֶהְגּוּ (protests from the nations of the world) exist whether settling in select areas or when settling anywhere in the Land.
יש לדעת שעושים זאת בשליחותו ובכוחו של הקב"ה, שעל ידי כך מתווסף יותר תוקף במעשה ההתיישבות, ולגבי כוחו של הקב"ה אין מקום למניעות כלל ח"ו. בשעה שיילכו בדרך זו, הנה לא רק שסוף סוף הם לא יערערו, אלא אדרבה, זה יביא את "הללו את ה' כל גוים שבחוהו כל האומים, כי גבר עלינו חסדו וגו'". (משיחת מוצ"ש פרשת לך לך תשל"ח)
It should be known that Settling everywhere in the Land is done by the Shlichut, sent on a Mission by G-d and by the power of G-d, which thereby adds more validity to the act of settlement, and as for G-d's power there is no reason to stop from proceeding nor hold back, G-d Forbid. When they go this way, not only will they not be undermined, on the contrary, It will bring the Nation to sing הללו את ה' כל גוים שבחוהו כל האומים, כי גבר עלינו חסדו וגו'"."Sing Praises to the Lord, all the nations, all the nations will praise Him, for his kindness has prevailed over us, etc." (From the Rebbes Sicha Motzei Shabbat Parshat Lech Lecha תשל"ח)
מנסיגה לא יבוא שלום
No retreat will bring peace
"ישנם הטוענים שהחזרת שטחים לאינם יהודים תביא לשלום - לא יתכן שהנהגה שהיא היפך התורה תגרום לדבר טוב, ועל אחת כמה וכמה שלא יתכן שהנהגה זו תביא לעניין ה"שלום", שעל זה נאמר "אם שלום כאן הכל כאן".
"Some argue that returning territories to non-Jews will lead to peace - it is not possible that such leadership which is the opposite of the Torah, will cause a good thing, and even more it can be argued, that this leadership will not bring about "peace", which says "if peace is here everything is here." (When really when Hashem is Here everything is Here)
ואדרבה, כאשר מתנהגים על פי התורה, ומסבירים לכולם (כולל אינם יהודים) - בסבר פנים יפות - שהיות והקב"ה נתן שטחים אלו לבני ישראל במתנה גמורה, אין ביכולת אף אחד לשנות זאת וכו' - זוהי הדרך להשכנת שלום אמיתי!
On the contrary, when you act according to the Torah, and explain to everyone (including non-Jews) -pleasantly- that since G-d gave these lands to the children of Israel as a gift, in its entirety, with finality, no one can change it, etc. - this is the way to make true peace!כדי לפעול שיהיה שלום אמיתי - בהכרח להתנהג על פי הוראות התורה "תורת אמת", והוראת התורה היא שצריכים לומר את האמת. כאשר מדברים עם אינם יהודים, אסור לדבר אתם בשקרים, באופן של 'דיפלומטיה', אלא צריכים לומר להם את האמת: בברית בין הבתרים נתן הקב"ה את ארץ ישראל לבני ישראל "נחלת עולם", ולכן אסור לנו להיות כפויי טובה ולא לקבל את מתנתו של הקב"ה..." (משיחת י' טבת תשמ"ב).
In order to act in a way for there to be true peace - one must necessarily act in accordance with the provisions of the Torah "Torah of Truth", and the teaching of the Torah is that one must tell the truth. When talking to non-Jews, we must not talk to them in lies, in the form of 'diplomacy', but must tell them the truth: In the Covenant G-d made with Abraham, God gave the Land of Israel to the children of Israel "an Eternal inheritance", and therefore it is forbidden to be ungrateful and not accept The gift of God ... "(from the 10th of Tevet 5742).
שלמות העם ושלימות הארץ
The שלמות העם, integrity of the people, and the שלמות הארץ, Integrity of the land"אע"פ שאין זה הזמן לדבר בגנותן של ישראל - הרי העניין שידובר אינו מצד רצונו האמיתי של יהודי (כי כל אחד ואחד מישראל רוצה לקיים את רצון הקב"ה) אלא רק מצד זה ש"יצרו אונסו", היינו, שיצרו מתמודד עמו ולפעמים אונסו לעשות היפך
"Even though it is not the time to speak critically of Israel - after all, the matter in question is about the true will of a Jew (because each and every one of Israel wants to fulfill the will of God) but only on the part of the evil inclination that forces him against his will, that means that it struggles with him to do the opposite of his true will.
[The following will help clarify what the Rebbe is saying in the next paragraph.
הקדושה העצמית של הארץ
The independent sanctity of the land
קדושת השכינה היא זו שהארץ מיוחדת לקדוש ברוך הוא, וקרא אותה "ארצי" (יואל ד, ב), ונקראת "נחלת ה'" (שמואל כ, יט). ואמרו חז"ל: "חביבה ארץ ישראל, שבחר בה הקב"ה. אתה מוצא, כשברא העולם, חילק הארצות לשרי האומות ובחר בארץ ישראל. מניין? שכן משה אמר: 'בהנחל עליון גוים בהפרידו בני אדם יצב גבלת עמים למספר בני ישראל כי חלק ה' עמו יעקב חבל נחלתו'" (דברים לב, ח-ט). אמר הקב"ה: יבואו ישראל, שבאו לחלקי, וינחלו את הארץ, שבאה לחלקי." וכן אמרו חז"ל: "הקב"ה ברא ארצות וברר אחת מהן, זו ארץ ישראל. שנאמר: 'ארץ אשר ה' אלקיך דורש אותה, תמיד עיני ה' אלקיך בה' (דברים יא, יב). ואין השכינה שורה אלא בארץ ישראל. ונאמר: 'אשר אני שוכן בתוכה' (במדבר לה, לד)."]
The holiness of the Shechinah is that which the Land is special, unique to the Holy One, Blessed be He, and called it "My Land" (Joel 4: 2), and it is called "the inheritance of the Lord" (Samuel 20:19). And the sages said: "Beloved is Eretz Yisrael, chosen by G-d. You will find that when He created the world, He divided the lands to the ministers of the nations and chose Eretz Yisrael. From where do we learn that?  ' When the Most High gave nations their lot, when He separated the sons of man, He set up the boundaries of peoples according to the number of the children of Israel. Because the Lord's portion is His people Jacob, the lot of His inheritance. ' "(Deuteronomy, 8: 9). God said: "Let Israel come, who came to My Portion, and inherit the land that also came to My Portion." And the sages also said: "God created lands and separated out one of them, this is the Land of Israel. It is said: 'a land the Lord, your God, looks after; the eyes of Lord your God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year to the end of the year.' (Deuteronomy 11:12). ]
לאחרונה החל היצר הרע להתנגד לכללות העניין ד'שלימות הארץ', "ארץ אשר... עיני ה' אלוקיך בה מרשית שנה ועד אחרית שנה", ששלימותה קשורה עם 'שלימות העם', כדאיתא במדרש רז"ל: "כשברא העולם חילק הארצות וכו', יבואו ישראל שבאו לחלקי וינחלו את הארץ שבאה לחלקי", זאת אומרת, שהקב"ה נתן את כל ארץ ישראל לעם ישראל באופן של "נחלת עולם".
Recently, the evil instinct began to oppose the general principles of the matter of שלמות הארץ, "the integrity of the land," "the eyes of Lord your God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year to the end of the year", whose integrity is related to the "integrity of the people," as it says in the Midrash "When G-d created the Land etc., Israel will come who came to My Part and inherit the land that came to My Part, "that is, that G-d gave all the land of Israel to the people of Israel in the form of an "Eternal inheritance".
והנה מאחר שכך נאמר בתורה, תורה נצחית, "תורת אמת", ו"תורת חיים", היינו שהתורה נותנת הוראה אמיתית ונצחית בחיים - הרי בודאי שעניין זה (שארץ ישראל בשלמותה שייכת לעם ישראל בשלמותו)
הוא עניין של קיימא, באופן אמיתי ונצחי.
And since this is what is said in the Torah, "Eternal Torah" , "Torat Emet", and "Torat Chaim", that means that the Torah gives true and eternal instruction in life - surely this matter (that the Land of Israel in its entirety belongs to the people of Israel in its entirety) is a sustainable, true and eternal matter.
ולעומת זאת - כל תחבולות היצר (שמתנגד לעניין זה) אין להם מציאות כלל, כי מאחר שזהו היפך רצון הקב"ה, הרי זה עניין שקר, היפך האמת, אפילו כאשר מדברים בלשונות 'דיפלומטיים' - לכן אין לזה מציאות כלל". (משיחת ליל שמע"צ
On the other hand, all tricks of the evil inclination (which oppose this matter) have no reality at all, because since it is the opposite of God's will, it is a false matter, the opposite of the truth, even when speaking in 'diplomatic' languages - therefore it has no reality at all. " (From the Shichat the Eve of Shemini Atzeret 5742).תשמ"ב).
"ניצחונם של בני ישראל בימי חנוכה הוא - שנשארו נאמנים לעם ישראל, לתורה ומצוותיה, והלכו עם התוקף של "גאון יעקב", מבלי להתפעל מהלחץ של היוונים, ביחד עם ה'מתייוונים' - יהודים שרדפו אחרי היוונים, התרפסו בפניהם והשתדלו לישא חן בעיניהם, תמורת כל מחיר
The victory of the children of Israel on the days of Hanukkah is - who remained faithful to the people of Israel, to the Torah and its commandments, and walked with the force of "Genius Jacob", without dealing with the pressure of the Greeks, nor together with those who assimilated with "Greeks" - Jews who chased after the Greeks, bowed to them and tried to please them, for any price..אבל לדאבוננו, ישנם כיום יהודים שהולכים בשיטתם של ה'מתייוונים', והם אלו שגרמו לכל המחדלים השונים, הן במלחמת יום כיפור, הן בהסכמי קמפ-דיויד, הן במלחמת שלום הגליל, והן בשאר העניינים שהיו
But unfortunately, today there are Jews who follow the method of those who assimilated with 'Greeks', and they are the ones who caused all the various failures, both in the Yom Kippur War, both in the Camp David Accords, in the Galilee Peace War, and in other matters that were in the meantime ...אותם 'מתייוונים' יכולים להיות שמניחים תפילין בכל יום, אבל בעניין זה - הם בבחינת 'תינוקות שנשבו', מכיוון שקיבלו חינוך שצריכים להתפעל מהגוי, להתרפס בפניו ולהשתדל לישא חן בעיניו..." (משיחת שבת פרשת מקץ תשד"ם)
The same Misyavnim, may be wearing tefillin every day, but in this matter - they are considered 'captured babies', because they received an education that they should admire the gentile, bow to him and try to please him ... "(Mishkat Shabbat Parshat Makatz 5745)
ז וַיֵּרָ֤א יְהֹוָה֙ אֶל־אַבְרָ֔ם וַיֹּ֕אמֶר לְזַ֨רְעֲךָ֔ אֶתֵּ֖ן אֶת־הָאָ֣רֶץ הַזֹּ֑את וַיִּ֤בֶן שָׁם֙ מִזְבֵּ֔חַ לַֽיהֹוָ֖ה הַנִּרְאֶ֥ה אֵלָֽיו:

Orthodox Jews: How to Respond to the Democratic bullying to close down Yeshivas, Shuls and Stores in NY State and NY City.
אל המקום אשר...
Robin is absolutely right!The Jewish community needs to see our spiritual, communal and political leaders taking a courageous and long-overdue stand. We cannot pretend that everything is okay when Jews are being threatened by Democratic state and local officials. These actions and those responsible -- and all are Democrats -- must be denounced and defeated!Our Jewish leaders must break publicly with the Democratic Party and urge the broader community to do the same.

URGENT Dear Chevrai Knesset and Friends, We wish to call your immediate attention to the following report we compiled for you to consider before casting approval for the Abraham Accords tomorrow. Abraham Accords -
RETURN OF HOPE or
HOPE OF RETURN?
Will 100,000 Palestinian emigres now in the UAE be invited back to help populate an emerging Palestinian state? The UAE positions itself to spearhead the Ingathering of the Palestinian Exiles Two years ago, an Op-Ed piece in an English language Israeli news site carried this headline: Hope of Return Keeps the Palestinian Refugees Going dateline: 10.4.2018 See: https://www.haaretz.com/opinion/.premium-palestinians-have-a-homeland-too-1.5336086 Last week, this headline was carried by dozens of internet news sites, quoting the UAE state news agency: UAE foreign minister emphasizes return of hope, Palestinians and Israelis to work for two-state solution - WAM [UAE state news agency] dateline: 10.6.2020 See:https://www.reuters.com/ The UAE has its own Palestinian problem and Israel is the solution. The UAE is host to upwards of 100,000 people who claim their homeland to be the lands of the Jordan Valley and west to the sea. These "guests" of the UAE are among the 8 million or so residents in the Emirates who do not have status as citizens – which is more than 80% of the resident population. NEWS OF EXPANSION OF CITIZENSHIP RIGHTS IN THE UAE DOES NOT INCLUDE PALESTINIAN EXPATRIATES The prerogatives of citizenship limited to the few has served the UAE government well since its establishment fifty years ago. But now the UAE is at a crossroads in its rigid qualifications for citizenship, which now excludes some otherwise very successful business and professional people from fully participating in the booming economy. The UAE is drawing up plans to expand eligibility for citizenship. "On Sept. 30, the Emirati government unveiled proposed changes to the country's citizenship law that would ease the way for investors, long-term residents and wealthy foreigners to earn a permanent place in the country." See:https://worldview.stratfor.com/article/larger-uae-citizenry-would-mean-smoother-policymaking-and-rockier-regional-ties But one drawback to such a plan for expanded eligibility for citizenship is that it might have to include such "guests" as the exiles from Gaza and the West Bank, whose utility as citizens is not seen as a prospective asset. PALESTINIAN EXPATRIATES IN THE UAE ARE INSECURE - AND MAY BE TOLD TO LEAVE Eleven years ago, the UAE demonstrated how tenuous is the existence of these exiles within the Gulf state - summarily, an indeterminate number of temporary residents identified as Palestinian were expelled, with no coherent reason being provided until this day. This move was condemned throughout the Arab world, which had already established standards for appeal from deportation orders among its members. See: https://www.haaretz.com/1.5469186 In short, before it can start providing citizenship as a means of upward mobility for the valued residents, the UAE needs to find a way to dump its Palestinian population. The "Abraham Accords" open a pathway for the UAE to painlessly divest itself of an irritating obstacle to its plans to include more affluent guests as citizens. THE ISRAELIS JUST DON'T GET IT One hundred thousand Palestinians now living in the UAE forced to return to their place of origin might easily push-start world-wide momentum for a "Palestinian Ingathering" from among the "Palestinian Diaspora". There do not seem to be any media reports on the Abraham Accords disclosing whether Israel is prepared to counter a surge of return by Palestinian natives who might yet be declared unwelcome by the UAE government. Disclosure of such plans would be in very bad taste during at a time when Israel is anxious to demonstrate to the United States its good will in cooperating with the UAE. A JEWISH MAJORITY IS A DETERRENT The establishment of a Palestinian state opens up a can of worms, demographically, for the State of Israel: 5.5 million Arabs are claimed to live in the same territory controlled by just under 7 million Jews. But as many as 2.5 million more people claiming Palestinian nationality live scattered in dozens of countries around the world. Simple logic demonstrates that were they all to return to the area west of the Jordan, they would find themselves a majority in an area dominated by a population suddenly reduced to a minority. But many of those countries where Palestinian expatriates (or exiles) live have no diplomatic relations with Israel. Only the sheer logistics of obtaining a visa to revisit their homeland prevent the area from being demographically dominated by those of Arab ancestry. CAREFUL GRANTING OF VISAS GUARDS THE CLAIM TO SOVEREIGNTY As of today, October 14, the website of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs does not display the UAE among the countries in which the State of Israel has a diplomatic presence. See:https://www.gov.il/en/Departments/dynamiccollectors/israeli-consular-services?skip=0at Further, visas issued to visitors to Israel carrying a UAE passport must be individually certified by the MFA. This of course is subject to change. Checking visa requirements between Israel and the UAE, Wikipedia notes: "More information will be available soon due to the Israel-UAE peace agreement." The hope for a Palestinian state would be immensely enhanced by an inward migration of those currently scattered throughout the "Palestinian Diaspora". Easy visas - or no visas - would make the absorption of Palestinians expelled from the UAE a dream come true for them, and a nightmare for Israeli security. The signal that they need not have any fear of the government disrupting their passage into the land would embolden those who arrive with most murderous instincts - a point made over and over again by the current President of the United States regarding unrestricted access to his own country's shores by uninvited criminal invaders. VISA REQUIREMENTS RELAXED: A WELCOME MAT FOR RETURNING PALESTINIANS While the Jewish state maintains and uninterruptedly preserves its options for sovereignty over the land, there is little incentive for Palestinians scattered throughout the world to return home. But, if...emphasis on "if" these exiles are to be given some shred of tangible evidence that a Palestinian State might become a reality, many would be inspired to make "aliya". The UAE has advertised that its initiative in the Abraham Accords is to keep the concept of a two-state solution alive - meaning that any commitment Israel makes to refrain from annexing lands west of the Jordan - however "temporary" Israel says that commitment is - sounds a clarion call to exiled Arabs to return to their homeland to build their own new state. At the same time, this rallying point provides a benign destination for those the UAE plans to expel. The Abraham Accords, so unpopular today among native Arabs, will quickly be transformed to a perception that UAE is a hero, having forced open the door to re-emigration of exiles to swell the population of a future Palestinian state. Will the Abraham Accords and other similar regional agreements oblige the State of Israel to accept these Palestinian "returnees" with nowhere else to go but back "home"? How will Israel respond to masses of heritage-touring Arabs claiming Palestinian descent and demanding rights to repatriate either to Palestinian-controlled territory in Judea, Samaria or Gaza or to the State of Palestine Israel leaders committed to when they signed these regional treaties that include "achieving a just, comprehensive and enduring resolution (the two-state solution) to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict"? Will Israeli leaders succumb to the pressure to overlook potential, if not, obvious security risks a major influx of Palestinians might cause? Is this the "Right of Return"... in plain sight? At the time of the British Mandate, the anti-Zionist Rabbi Yosef Chaim Sonnenfeld was asked to sign a document relinquishing Jewish ownership of the Kotel Ha'Maaravi, the Western Wall, in a deal to allow Jewish worship there. "We have no right to forfeit a gift of G-d to the Jewish People..." HaRav Kook also refused to sign. The nations of the world must not be allowed to say they have stopped assertion of Israeli sovereignty on what is not an Israeli politician's to give away.

Both Israel's Cabinet Ministers and Knesset verified the Abrahamic Accords.
We will be monitoring the situation especially if there is an uptick of terror attacks and harassment of Jewish Settlers in Eretz Yisroel.
The G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is a G-d Who Makes Promises and G-d Who Keeps His Promises.
May all International agreements regarding the Land of Israel be in accordance and consistent with G-d's vision...namely the Biblical Abrahamic Accords. This is the key to true peace, real security and prosperity for all of mankind.
The Rebbe on giving away Land..please fwd to Jared Kushner and Trump Team. Eye to Eye by William Koenig Tysm!
אל המקום אשר….
Hoshana Rabba 5781
Dear Patriots of Israel,
"For you the world was created."
"In a place where there is no man be a man."
We have an immediate crisis on our hands.
Netanyahu will formally present for ratification the Abraham Accords to his Cabinet on Monday, October 12th.
Following that, the treaty will be brought before the Knesset for vote.
The Cabinet will be under tremendous pressure to ratify this Abrahamic Accord. If they don't it will make Netanyahu and Trump look very bad.
On the other hand Israel can't ratify this agreement so long as there is a mere suggestion of a two State Solution as it nullifies G-d's Covenant with our Forefathers and therefore void in its conception.
Both Trump and Netanyahu need G-d on their side.
G-d is probably not happy with Netanyahu's willingness to share Israel's ancestral birthright with the Palestinians. Is it happenstance that Netanyahu couldn't put together a coalition and now has to share a unity government with Gantz?
Trump was doing amazing even with his impeachment hearings. His popularity just increased but then the Deal of the Century was announced Jan. 28, 2020. Is it happenstance that the WHO declared Covid a global emergency Jan 30, 2020 just 2 days later and the economy he brilliantly salvaged nearly collapsed over a short few week time period?
President Trump is now facing a contested election. Will Trump have to share the Oval Office with the Democrats measure for measure? I don't think he'd like that one bit.
Not too late to save the day!
Introducing Operation Zocher HaBrit.
Between the time you get this email and the time Netanyahu's meeting with his cabinet on Monday we need to "mobilize our troops" and lobby the Cabinet Ministers to agree to sign the Abrahamic Accords only under the following conditions.
- Take out any clauses suggesting self determination of Arabs in the delineated boundaries of Eretz Yisroel. Such a clause is inconsistent with the Bible and the Mandate of Palestine which entrusted Britain to be the Trustee to reconstitute Palestine, to the Jewish People. England with the signing of the White Paper betrayed this trust and closed the border to Jews and opened it to Arabs. 6 million Jews perished in the Holocaust as they had no place of refuge to flee.
- Add a clause that the Jewish Settlers of Judea and Samaria and other communities will have permission to set up militias and have the authority to defend themselves if they are attacked by hostile enemies. See clarification below if red warning lights just went on.*
- Add a clause that the textbooks and educational materials used in UNRWA schools and throughout Israel including Judea and Samaria, will be subject to review making sure all hate indoctrination against Israel and the Jewish people are removed.
If the cabinet ratifies the Abrahamic Accords as presented to them without the proposed clauses that address Pikuach Nefesh, Operation Zocher HaBrit consisting of Jewish Patriots in Israel and the Diaspora will put out a PR campaign on behalf of the Jewish Citizens of Israel with the headlines "Taxation without Representation!" which puts the government of the State of Israel in a negative light. We would rather not do that!
We want everyone to wake up!
No Justice No Peace!
How is it that citizens of Israel who pay their taxes and whose sons are the first to sign up for combat duty are treated as 2nd class citizens?
We have lots of documentation to support allegations against the government of the State of Israel on their failure to protect and defend their citizens!
Documentation: Patriots of Israel - Taxation Without Representation
The bottom line is that the State of Israel is doing a very poor job in protecting its citizens, subject to constant stonings, molotov cocktails, rockets, knivings etc. The perpetrators if caught are released and there is no deterrence.
This has to end!
In addition, what point is there in signing a peace treaty with the UAE, perpetuating the myth of self determination of Arabs in Israel's ancestral homeland?
The mere suggestion is giving Arabs false hope of autonomy. Arabs live in very close proximity to Jews and to Israelis, and their school education indoctrinates Arab kids to hate Jews and Israel. This is a sure recipe for disaster.
Who wants a neighbor that hates them?
We are deluding ourselves by calling it normalization.
May Hashem sweeten any evil decree and may all the curses turn into Blessings.
We are suggesting that the Cabinet and Knesset authorize the formation of militias to help protect Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria and elsewhere, militias which specifically represent their own communities and property, militias coordinated with the IDF.
We suggest that a clause of the above suggestion be included in any signed agreement with the UAE..
We are one family. If the State of Israel ties the hand of the IDF and The Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT),
basically turns a blind eye, then Judea and Samaria and all communities for that matter under attack should be given full authority, with the full coordination, support and consent of the State of Israel, to defend themselves.
It's a novel approach but the State of Israel has gotten itself into a bind and can't seem to adequately defend Judea and Samaria and the Jews living in Judea and Samaria are not being allowed to defend themselves. And many communities outside of Judea and Samaria are experiencing similar threats and are under siege unprotected. The citizens of Sderot for example is a perfect example.
Again, the status quo is not sustainable!
We don't want a civil war Chas veSholom!
However, all citizens coming from communities in Judea and Samaria and any part of Israel for that matter, including the Negev and the Galil as well, living on the Gaza border should and must be protected! Especially in communities in Judea and Samaria, where the percentage of combat soldiers relative to other communities are very high, and have loyal Israeli patriots who pay their fair share in taxes, and are sitting on the front line, and live on the high ground.
That's the right of every citizen in any country..
This stipulation in turn protects the entire Israel, especially large population centers situated on low ground like Tel Aviv, Bnei Brak and Ben Gurion.
Compare the situation in Israel with what triggered the Revolutionary War in America. The Patriots created their own militias when they weren't treated fairly. And it wasn't even because the British were physically attacking them with stones and rockets. It was merely "taxation without representation". That was reason enough to fight for freedom!
Of course we don't want a civil war with Jew fighting fellow Jew. These militias are for the purpose of fighting hostile enemies. These enemies of Israel and the Jewish people are stoning innocent travellers on the roads, spreading arson on private property, stealing livestock or cars, infiltrating communities and perpetrating terror attacks, cutting down or destroying planted trees, breaking into homes and robbing the occupants, common in communities near Arab villages, sending rockets and explosive balloons and spreading fires close to Gaza etc...
Practically if communities are surrounded by hostile Arabs and can't defend themselves, and the IDF is not doing their job effectively and COGAT turns a blind eye and even worse, investigates and brings criminal charges against the victims for defending themselves, then naturally there is no deterrence, and the communities are not safe.
Presenting a Revolutionary but Doable Solution!
Here is an opportunity to suggest that the Settlers in Judea and Samaria be given the opportunity to create a prototype Torah Autonomy.
Not a hostile autonomy to the State of Israel like the PA. The opposite! A sister Autonomy governed by laws that are consistent to Torah as per the Resolution of the Moetzet Gedolei HaTorah in Marienbad 1937.
...The text of the resolution of the Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah contains the statements: "The foundation of the Jewish people's right to the Holy Land is based on the Torah and the prophets.... A Jewish State not based on the principles of Torah is a denial of Jewish origin, is opposed to the identity and to the true stature of our people, and undermines the basis of existence of our people...Any relinquishment of the Holy Land given to the Jewish people by G-d has no validity" (HaPardes, 11:6) See page 8
1989 רחבעם זאבי MK Rechavam Zeevi Asks Lubavitcher Rebbe What More Can be done To Protect Israel. He said Spread Torah Judaism in the Land so it's recognized as the natural state of the Land of Israel
The thought of a Torah Autonomy is revolutionary.
The current secular State of Israel is not prepared for such a radical change.
However, if a relatively small prototype Torah Autonomy is given a chance to govern according to Torah guidelines in Judea and Samaria where the population is open and would welcome the opportunity, then it might actually allow the world to see a Torah run government and judge for itself.
It is our belief, hope and prayer that such an experiment will prove to be an eye opener and the world will say. Am Chacham veNavon , a smart and wise Nation ...
A government in Israel based on Torah is what we pray for daily.
Are our prayers relevant or mere lip service?
