A Jew [Should] Kick Out Non-Jews

Leil 12 Marheshwan 5766

A Jew Kicks Out A Non-Jew

"A Jew Kicks Out A Non-Jew" is the translation of this Hebrew phrase Yehudi megaresh lo yehudi.

It is based on the anti-expulsion slogan Yehudi lo megaresh yehudi ("A Jew Does Not Kick Out A Jew") used by so-called "right-wing" Jews desiring to prevent the expulsion of Jews from their rightful homes in Gush Qatif (a block of communities in Southern Gaza), Netzarim and K'far Darom (Central Gaza), and Dugit, Alei Sinai, and Nissanit (Northern Gaza).

ואם לא תורישו את ישבי הארץ מפניכם והיה אשר תותירו מהם לשכים בעיניכם ולצניים בצדיכם צררו אתכם על הארץ אשר אתם ישבים בה: -במבדר לג:נה

But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the Land before you, those of them whom you leave shall be stingers in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they will harrass you upon the land in which you dwell. -Numbers 33:55

The slogan certainly appears to be in line with Torah!

Bright yellow sweatshirts, bearing the above design, have been seen for sale at various events and locations in Jerusalem. If interested in acquiring one, please e-mail me, and I can look into it for you!

Indeed, a Jew does not deport a Jew. He just brings him back home a few meters back to the State of Israel.

The Hebrew phrase "yehudi megaresh lo yehudi" can be correctly translated as you have, "A Jew expels a non-Jew." It can also be translated, however, as "A Jew who expels is not a Jew." That is a double edged sword, as you will perceive. Yes, it condemns the unJews who expelled the Jews of Gush Katif and the Northern Shomron , but it also militates against expulsion of Arabs.

To Anonymous: Are you familiar with something called the Torah? It is forbidden to give up Land controled by Jews (Ramba"n, Ramba"n). Even more so, according to most poseqim Azza is part of Eretz Yisael (on Genesis 20 -- Avraham walked around all parts of the area that would belong to his decendants, Azza in this chapter.) We do not interpret the Hallachah according to our feelings, nor according to the wishes of the goyim, in order to placate them and to gain their approval and validation of our very existence.

P. S. In other words, it's ALL ours.
