Then Why...?

Leil 28 Nisan 5766

Tonight I was pleasantly surprised to find that my comment to an Arutz 7 article had been published. The article was
Arutz 7: Aviner"Spiritual Matters Not Subject to Give-and-Take"
15:15 Apr 24, '06 / 26 Nisan 5766
by Hillel Fendel

I emphasize the word "surprised." Read the article, then my comment, remember that Arutz 7 is located in Beth-El where Shlomo Aviner is co-Chief Rabbi, and you'll understand why.

Here is my comment (#19):

"Rabbenu Tzvi Yehudah ztz"l also said that one should do everything in order to delay and to prevent the giving up [even part] of the Land of Israel. Rav Melamed and Rav Lior understand this. Shlomo Aviner does not. He says one cannot refuse orders to expel Jews. He was seen chit-chatting with the Azza expulsion commander. (See photo below.) He was the one who attacked Jews who were acting on Rabbenu Tzvi Yehudah's dictate. See testimony at: www.aviner.net."

Furthermore I went to the original article, to which Hillel Fendel referred.

Machon Me'ir: 'A Bizarre Suggestion' "A Bizarre Suggestion"
Shlomo Aviner
Shabbath Hol HaMo'ed Pesach
17 Nisan 5766


I wrote to Machon Me'ir with the following question. We shall see if they bother to send me an answer.

"Shalom Aleichem. Regarding Rav Shlomo Aviner's article, I am confused. His statements here contradict his behavior in Azza this summer where he criticized and otherwise attacked Jews who were defending their homes in Eretz Yisrael. The army and police were participants in the expulsion, something which Rav Aviner clearly states is against the Hallachah. Why, then did Rav Aviner prevent and otherwise discourage residents of Azza from doing what needed to be done to defend their homes effectively, and thus prevent their fellow Jews (gov't officials, soldiers, and police) from going against a very big issur of the Torah? Thank you."

Dear President Bush,...Hello?!

5 Nissan 5766

Dear Mr. President (and Cabinet),

Below is an article which sums up the Hamas controlled Arab authority in Yehudah, Shomron, & Azza (Judea, Samaria, & Gaza).

With all due respect, Sir,...don't you get it yet? They want to destroy Israel.

And, do you really think that even if Israel met all of those ridiculous demands they would actually recognize Israel? Of course not!

The reason for the Hamas vistory is clear. The only difference between Fatah and Hamas is that Fatah chose to employ the European leftist tactic of lying more often than Hamas. The only difference between Hamas YSh"W, Fatah YSh"W and the so-called "Israeli" Arabs YSh"W is that Israeli Arabs YSh"W are more patient, willing to wait until they out populate the Jews through their higher birthrate.

The Arabs of Yehudah, Shomron, & Azza voted for Hamas for only one reason. They are impatient. They see a weak Israel, a sickening puppet of the US, and they see that the time is ripe to pounce. The Israel of today is unlike the victor of the Six Day and Yom Kippur Wars. The Israel of today runs away from terrorism and rewards it, hoping for a smile and pat on the back from the EU (which they'll never get), and money from the US. Like an addict, one dollar is too much, and a billion, never enough!

Is it not US policy not to give in to terrorist demands? Then why should Israel have to?

And for goodness sakes, Mr. Presidant, when will you finally accept that there is no difference between Hamas YSh"W and Al-Qaeda YSh"W?

Do you really have to wait for a Hamas-like 9/11 attack on US soil before you are willing to accept this fact? May The Almighty grant you the necessary wisdom, so that it does not have to come to that.

Hamas PeaceHaniyeh Calls for "A just peace or no peace"
22:21 Apr 01, '06 / 3 Nisan 5766
By Debbie Berman

Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh presented the Hamas vision for peace to be based on Israeli concessions in an opinion piece in the British publication the Guardian on Friday.

Haniyeh criticized the international community for putting pressure on Hamas to recognize Israel and accept agreements signed with Israel in the past, while no demands are being put on Israel. "Do policymakers in Washington and Europe ever feel ashamed of their scandalous double standards? Before and since the Palestinian elections in January, they have continually insisted that Hamas comply with certain demands," Haniyeh wrote.

Haniyeh claimed that his intention was to pursue peace in the region stating, "the Hamas supports peace and seeks to put an end to the bloodshed. The Hamas reaches out its hand to peace based on justice."

Haniyeh proceeded to outline the basis for his proposed peace plan as one that called for a complete Israeli withdrawal from all lands conquered in 1967, including East Jerusalem, the destruction of all Israeli settlements and the expulsion of all Israeli settlers in those areas, Israel's immediate release of all Palestinian prisoners and a demand that Israel recognize the Palestinian right of return.

After these conditions are met the Hamas would agree to an end to acts of bloodshed carried out by both sides. Haniyeh re-stated the Palestinians legitimate "right to self-defense by any means" and stressed that the Palestinians intend to continue their struggle to break free from the ongoing Israeli occupation.

Israeli Civics 101

1 Adar 5766

The following was prompted by Shiloh Muse's well-stated piece "Israeli Supreme Court."

The Supreme Court functions as a shadow government in Israel. The Court makes up the law as it goes along, and according to its own wishes. It is guided primarily by its desire to maintain its power over the country. Yet, it is also influenced by European public opinion, Western, academic elite, sensibilities, and, of course, the all-encompassing hatred for all things Jewish (Read: all things related to Torah).

What happened to Arutz 7 in its attempt at "legal," radio broadcasting is a good example. After the K'nesset granted Arutz 7 its permit to broadcast, the Supreme Court intervened, claiming that the K'nesset legalized the radio station...illegally. ???

The Israeli Supreme Court maintains power through its self-perpetuation. New justices are appointed by a committee, comprised of the Chief Justice, one other justice, the attorney general, and a couple of token K'nesset members.

Truly democratic "checks and balances" are simply nonexistent in Israel.

No matter whom we elect this year (28 Adar 5766), or any other year, Aharon Baraq YSh"W, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, will continue to be our president, Shimon Peres YSh"W will be our Prime Minister, Yossi Beilin YSh"W will be the Ambassador-at-large and "moral conscience," etc. (May God help us!)

The only reason the K'nesset is now able to consider a possible "constitution," is because the left will be able to manipulate the outcome. A constitution will gain points with the U. S. AND give even more "legitimacy" to the Supreme Court, and to the accompanying Baraq-Peres shadow dictatorship.

This is the Erev Rav in action.

What are we going to do about it?

Response to "Crazy Settler"

11 Shevat 5766

Yeah, this is a bit late in responding. But, while browsing through Arutz 7 Opinion Pieces, I could not ignore the following jab against my fellow, Torah-observant Jews, slaving away, to provide for their families and to protect their homes from the Yishma'eli enemy, all in the face of pressures from the anti-Torah, Israeli battling government:

Arutz 7 OpinionCrazy Settler
by Go'el Jasper
30 Adar 5765

"...But it's strange, because I don't feel like a crazy settler. I do believe there are crazy settlers. I just don't think I'm one of them. Nevertheless, I figured you would be interested to know what the average day of a crazy settler is like..."
more

***********************************

Go'el, I cannot disagree with 99% percent of your narrative. You escritorily, and appropriately so, smacked the Jewish hypocite, stuck both physically, mentally, and spiritually in galuth (diaspora). But, one thing caught my attention: "...there are crazy settlers."

Do tell us, Go'el. What is your definition of a crazy settler?

Someone who builds his own home with his own hands?

A Jewish teenager who learns on a hilltop becasue the government's socialist indoctrination of the so-called "religious" educational system isn't appropriate for him?

Someone who doesn't care about "public relations" [PR] with the leftists or with the goyim?

Or is it someone who puts Torah before the "laws" of this government of mostly kofrim (deniers of Torah)?

Gee, I guess that makes me a "crazy settler."

Quite frankly, if we all acted even "crazier," I'll bet we'd be more successful getting the governement to leave us alone, and to give us whatever else we wanted.

After all, look at the Yishma'elim (Arabs)....

Note: I'll give you the benefit of the doubt here. This is an old post of yours, a year old. You had also only been here for a year at the time. Perhaps your tune has changed?

Has it?

Aviner On Amona

11 Shevat 5766

Aviner is at it again!

Earlier this week, Shlomo Aviner, otherwise known as the RaSh"A* of Beth El was heard on the French language radio news admonishing all those who threw rocks at police in Amona. Yet, no word was mentioned whatsoever about the abuses and unprovoked attacks of the police against those engaging in civil disobedience, to which various news reports, left, right, and center, have already testified.

There were many "mamlachtim" there at Amona, many of whom decided that they would leave without a fight As many news reports show, none of them had a change.

How can people still call this man "Rav?"

So, tell me, my dear Mamlachti brothers,...and it's becoming increasingly difficult for me to refer to you with that term, where is the Hallachic (Jewish legal) source that says it was wrong for the protestors to defend Jewish homes and land from these violations and trespasses?

Oh,...that's right. You people don't care about Hallachah. You just don't like stiroth (contradictions) between the Torah and Israeli pseudo-law, so you go out of your way to reconcile them,...at all costs,...even if it means (God forbid) compromising God's Torah and misswoth.

How can you call yourselves Jews?

Wake up, before it's too late! You have been led astray by the Aviners and the Lichtensteins of the State.

Torah Law takes precedence over the laws enacted by men.

There are no ifs, ands, or buts about it!

Ask Pinhas

9 Shevat 5766

Pinhas Wallerstein

Head of Binyamin Council
Member of the self-appointed YeSh"A Council -- (Where do its salaries come from?)

...was the only one requiring a body guard at the recent YeSh"A Council organized demonstration. I wonder why? Not even Members of K'nesset brought [highly visible] body guards.

...whose people were trying to keep the "fanatics" away from the IDF equipment. Why? And why are God-fearing, Torah-passionate Jews referred to as fanatics?

...whose mamlachti followers got hurt because they listened to people like him. They keep getting hurt, yet they continue to listen. Why?

...whose address and phone numbers are:

Rehov HaSela 3, Ofra 02-9973179, 02-9975886, 054-5210200

If we REALLY lived in a democracy, then voicing your opinions [and outrage] to your public officials.

Let's see what happens when you ask Pinhas.

Cosequences Of Mamlachtiyuth

11 Teveth 5766

The following was written as a comment to the
news report --

"IDF Attempts to Destroy Homes in Gush Etzion 'Settlement Bloc,'" 12:54 Jan 11, '06 / 11 Tevet 5766 by Ezra HaLevi:

I assume that the residents of Sde. Bo'az are good and hard-working Jews. Avodah Ivrith gets them points in my book. Unfortunately, most residents of Gush Etzion are "mamlachtim," Jews who don't like to deal with "stiroth" between the gov't and the Torah. They are OFTEN willing to make pil-pul type Torah compromises in order to rid themselves of the "stiroth."

When will you mamlachtim start putting Torah first? When YOUR homes are threatened? I hope it never comes that.

Stop listening to the likes of Lichtenstein, Melchior, and yes your precious little, popular, Shlomo Aviner, who casually blows off the p'saq din against him by Gedolei HaDor, and you MAY have a chance.

Get a real rav.

Fulla What? Fulla Crap!

21 Marheshwan 5766

Have you heard of the new version of the Barbie Doll? She's called "Fulla," and here she is.... fulla

That's right! MSN - Hebrew Edition reports that this Muslim version of the traditional shown to impossible to obtain..

Look at the slutty outfit hidden under her modest garb. This is actually quite typical of the Yishma'eliah (Arab) female.

Why, I'm surprised that Islamic groups all over the world haven't complained. It's obviously a conspiracy on the part of the Western, cultural elite to demonize Muslim culture....

Of course, a few accessories were omitted. Here they are...

fullabomber

The most obvious is her suicide bomber belt, color-coordinated to match her

No I wasn't the first one to think of it. This summer, the British artist Simon Tyszko seemed to have come up with this idea in response to the London bombings.

fulla

The cheesy T-shirt can be complemented with the Arabic decals which are also included. This decal is Arabic for "prostitute," but can also be translated as slut.

I'm sure you are all going to run out and buy this wonderful new toy for your daughters, sons, and neighbors -- a necessary holiday gift for the politically-correct!
