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"

Shabbath Hol HaMo'ed Pesach

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.
