Dorit Beinish

B"H

- Why doesn't Dorit Beinish send Neriah Ofen straight to Siberia, the Gulag or lock him up in a mental institute? After all, only Arab loving extremists like her are considered sane in this country. You don't like Arabs? The idea of hostile goyim living in the Land of Israel? You are a Torah Jew? Get out of Neve Yaacov and Pisgat Zeev: absurd! I also want to know why this so called information source, ynetnews, keeps calling Judea and Samaria by its Jordanian name "West Bank", 40 odd years after the collapse of the Jordanian occupation?

Rabbi Eliezer Melamed's Take On The Emmanuel Story

B"H

A Complicated Situation

The story of what transpired in the city of Emmanuel is complicated. Both sides have claims, and neither of them intended to cause damage to one another. The Hasidic Jews wish to be precise and stringent with their customs in order to create a secure and protected framework for their daughters. The petitioners demanded that they follow the accepted rules of all independently-run educational schools throughout the country, which are more lenient. Precisely because of the educational difficulties in Emmanuel, the Hasidim desire to be more stringent, in order to guard themselves. On the other hand, precisely because of the same difficulties, those who were not accepted into the stringent and secure framework feel deeply distressed.

The problem worsened because the two sides did not solve the disagreement in an appropriate way – through a 'Beit Din' (court of Jewish law) accepted by both sides. Because the Haredi public in general lacks an agreed-upon leadership, similarly, there is no 'Beit Din' accepted by all the various groups. Therefore, when a significant dispute breaks out, there is no way to solve it. This is the situation in the dispute between the Hasidim and those who oppose the administration of the independently-run educational system. This is also what happens when a substantial disagreement arises between the different Hasidic groups, such as the dispute between Satmar and Vishnitz. And this is what occurs when a dispute arises in a Lithuanian yeshiva – as what took place in the Ponivitsh Yeshiva.

In such a situation, it is fitting for both sides to select their own 'dayan' (judge), and the two judges choose a third judge, and what the 'Beit Din' decides – they do.

The Supreme Court is Guilty

Had the Supreme Court demanded that both sides find themselves an accepted arbitrator, someone who profoundly understands the educational difficulties leading to the disagreement, they would have acted properly. Had the judges decided that in Emmanuel, the school must act similar to the accepted rules for independently-run schools throughout the country, thereby allowing a few additional girls to be accepted into the Hasidic framework – it would have been tolerable. However, to force the Hasidim to send their daughters to a school which is not acceptable to them – this is inconceivable. And when the parents refused to consent to Supreme Court's decree – to punish them with imprisonment – this is a crazy situation that every decent person must work to change.

And when the Supreme Court dares to justify its claim against the Hasidim as being 'racial discrimination' – this is chutzpah! The institution which is the most Ashkenazi, the most discriminatory, whose percentage of Sephardic Jews doesn't even reach ten percent, has the nerve to admonish others for not accepting Sephardim?!

Of course, the judges will say that the extremely low percentage of Sephardim in the judicial system is due to practical reasons. But this is exactly what the Hasidim are saying – the reasons are of a practical nature. And the Hasidim are far more correct than the judges. First, the percentage of Sephardic girls in the Hasidic classes is three times higher than the percentage of Sephardic judges in the Supreme Court. More importantly, the Hasidim don't pretend to dictate to all the other communities how to act; however, the Supreme Court does pretend to impose their values on the entire nation. How then, can they not include all the people who represent the gamut of the public's values?

Supreme Court Damage

The Supreme Court limited the actions of the I.D.F. – through severe limitations of targeted assassinations of terrorists, abolishment of the procedure of using them as human shields, and the prohibition of the policy of the Shabak (Secret Security) to "shake-up" informers – even in the case of a "ticking bomb". As a result of this, soldiers and civilians have been killed and it has even caused a war to break-out, for when the enemy cannot be deterred properly they continue to attack, until there is no alternative but to go to war. The Supreme Court damaged the status of Hebrew as the official language of the State of Israel. It changed the route of the "security fence" in contradiction to security considerations and the rights of the Jewish nation over its land. It harmed the values of the Jewish family. It dealt a blow to 'kashrut' arrangements. It harmed the possibility of giving preference in child allowances to citizens who served in the army. It damaged the proprietorship of the Jewish nation on lands belonging to the Jewish National Fund. It incited police and soldiers against the settlers, who, as the result of abuse from the Minister of Defense, were not able to arrange all the proper building permits. On the other hand, the Supreme Court delays taking action against much more severe violations of the law in the Arab sector.

Non-Jewish Courts: Desecration of God

Even without all these injustices, the existence of a court of law in the Jewish State which is not bound by Jewish tradition is a desecration of God. The entire world learned about truth and justice from our holy Torah, but the judges of the Supreme Court of the Jewish nation, which has returned to its own land, impose non-Jewish laws over the people. At first, they went according to Turkish and British law; more recently, they follow an extreme liberal viewpoint, part of which was invented by Aharon Barak, the previous head of the Supreme Court.

The present situation comes to prove just how costly this sin is for the Jewish nation.

The Two Sins of the Supreme Court

The Supreme Court sinned twice: First, in its assault on the sacred principle that parents are responsible for the education of their children. Just as every citizen has the right to choose where he lives, which furniture he buys, and whom he marries, he also has the right to decide what type of education he wants for his children. This Court wouldn't dare instruct any Arab how to educate his children.

The second sin is that it is forbidden for the Court to force a Jew to be unfaithful to his beliefs. If the Court asks to whom the parents are obligated – to the Torah, or to the Court, the answer of every Jew must be clear: to the Torah. The Jewish nation has sacrificed lives for the freedom of faith and conscience, and decent, non-Jews amongst the nations have learned this from us. And here, it is precisely Jewish judges who dare to undermine this basic idea. Even if disagreements exist about the method of education, inasmuch as the parents and their rabbi's think that this is what they must do according to the Torah, it is forbidden to force them to act in contrast to their beliefs. They have not yet incited their children to support the enemy or prepare bombs.

Power to the Righteous Parents

And when the Court arose to determine for the parents where and how to educate their children, the parents, with the guidance of the Rebbe from Slonim, acted properly by rebelling. And when the court arose to threaten them with imprisonment, they acted properly by going to jail with their heads held high, and not submitting to the Court's tyranny. Even if they erred in their treatment of some of the girls from Emmanuel – in the merit of their willingness to stand firm against the tyranny of the Court, and to place the Torah and faith above any non-religious rule – their sins are forgiven, and they merited sanctifying God's name.

'Yasher koach' to the Haredi public and its leaders, together with a number of people from the National Religious public, who accompanied the parents on their way to prison.

Responsibility of the Prime Minister and Knesset

It must be said: this is not only the sin of the Court. The public's representatives, the Members of Knesset, law-makers, and the Prime Minister, bear overall responsibility for the damage of the Supreme Court. They should have stopped its domineeringness a long time ago. Having not done so, they are full partners in all its injustices

Myths and Facts about the Israeli Naval Operation by Yekutiel Guzofsky

Arabs Try to Lynch Israeli Paint-Gun Commandos

B"H

If it wasn't so sad it would make great material for a comedy. The Israeli government sends its most elite military unit - its navy seals - to overtake the Turkish terrorist supply ships as they penetrated into Israeli territorial waters with the stated intent of breaking the Israeli naval blockade around the terrorist Hamas entity that controls Gaza. That Israel sees it as a priority to continue blocking the free flow of weapons into Gaza is not the problem. However, the feeble tactics used by the Israeli government to enforce the blockade needs to be studied and never again duplicated.Did Israel use disproportionate and excessive force? The absolute opposite is true – Israel armed its fighters with toy paint-guns, and gave specific orders to all troops not to open fire with their pistols unless their lives were in danger. In fact, the poor soldiers refrained from shooting back until some of their commrades were already being lynched, shot at, firebombed and stabbed.

The Israelis had spent tens of millions of shekels to set up hotel-suite jail cells, cake and coffee, and promised that they would not use unnecessary force to reroute the ships to the Ashdod port, where they would run a security check of all of the items and then transport the cargo, free of charge into Gaza. Israel also announced in advance that they would send all of the Turks and Europeans back to their countries of origin at Israel's expense. The European and Turkish Hamas sympathizers had two goals - to break through the blockade thereby easing present and future restrictions to transport and smuggle weapons freely into Gaza, and to embarrass Israel - knowing just how sensitive and obsessive Israel is about international public opinion. Israel also had two primary goals: To minimize damage to its image and to prevent direct passage into Gaza. In Israel's suicidal and futile quest to be loved by the Gentiles and to look good in their eyes, Israel once again risked the lives of is finest soldiers and civilians, lowering them onto the boats, one by one, armed primarily with toy paint-guns. This was after having undergone weeks of mental preparation to be "sensitive" to the terrorists who were known to be on board along with their radical supporters who came along for the voyage.

Israel's futile attempt to look pretty was doomed to failure from the onset, as the Voice of Judea predicted and published Friday, three days before the dangerous debacle at sea that resulted in severe injuries to several Israeli soldiers and in the deaths of some 15 Hamas sympathizers on the boat. In the prophetic words of that Judean Voice issue: "Israel lacks the means to offset anti-Israel bias on campuses and in the international press. Whatever Israel does, she will be portrayed as the culprit. It is nothing more than extreme stupidity and a mere exercise in futility to enter that uneven playing-field, where the deck (no pun intended) is stacked against Israel. Whatever Israel does she will be treated like an Apartheid state. Thus Israel should focus on one thing and one thing only – the prevention of the ships entering into Israeli waters, by any and all means necessary. Israel needs to make it clear to any and all that if they penetrate Israeli waters, they will be immediately sunk." We continued in our Friday commentary - "Nothing will be gained by placing our soldiers unnecessarily at risk by having them physically board the ships, and face off with terrorists and whatever unknown weapons and surprises await them. We have our limits and our borders and whoever penetrates them do so at their own risk. There is not a sane country in the free world that would have operated any differently than the way we have suggested when faced with a terrorist enemy who seeks to destroy them and to smuggle in weapons to annihilate them."

We even predicted the exact outcome: "Unfortunately Bibi lacks the backbone and the faith to do anything else but to play right into the hands of the terrorists, as he already promised to transport all of he ship's loads to Gaza, while on the other hand, he will not be able to avoid the bloody broadcasts of the Israeli commandos overtaking the boats – giving the Hamas the very victory that he is so frightened to deliver to them. This is the true danger of a secular head of state who lacks faith in G-d and the justice of his cause. For one who is scared of the prophetic scenario for Israel to "dwell alone" in separation and in isolation, and one who places his faith in Washington and who sees the Biblical isolation blessing as a dreadful curse, will inevitably lose out on all fronts and in all worlds. And we urge all to watch closely the unfolding of this saga at sea, because it is apparent that we will see yet another rerun of frightened myopic Jewish leaders, who with all of their insane preparations to greet the enemy boats with kid's gloves - it will all be to no avail. The same tons of supplies will be brought to Gaza and Israel will lose the media battle regardless."

What should be done? Firstly, we must not leave any doubt in anyone's mind that we will not risk one soldier unnecessarily, and we couldn't care less about international opinion. We must do what needs to be done to protect the integrity of our borders and the lives of our people. And if you as much as think about entering Israel by sea, land or air, we will blow you to kingdom's come. Bad P.R.? Better to stay alive with bad P.R. that makes the world boil over with anger at us, than to die and "benefit" from the sympathy at Yad Vashem as they come to cry their crocodile tears and place wreaths of flowers, wreathed with smiles and pity for the helpless Jewish victims. There is no way to buy the love of the Gentiles with misplaced mercy of fools. However, we can achieve respect and fear by taking the necessary steps to secure our borders thereby fulfilling the verse, "And the fear of the Jews has befallen the nations". Indeed the time has come to recover from our Jewish ghetto complex of seeking favor in the eyes of the Gentile, and to replace that with faith in G-d and Jewish power. That is the Jewish way, and the only way to restore Israel's deterrent factor lost at sea and lost when Israel fled Lebanon, surrendered Gaza, froze "settlement" growth, permitted Iran and Syria to pump weapons into Lebanon with impunity and forfeited her sovereignty over the Temple Mount. The situation will continue to deteriorate as long as Israel chooses to fight her battles with toy guns in the futile hope to gain favor in the eyes of her enemies.

The Saga at Sea and the Eaters of Stinking Fish
This latest saga at sea can only remind us of that famous Jewish story where a king sends his servant out to buy him fish. The servant returns with fish that stinks. The enraged king offers his servant to choose one of three punishments: to eat the fish, to pay for the fish, or to take 20 lashes. The servant, not wanting to fork over money, tries to eat the fish, but it is so disgusting, that he stops in the middle, and chooses to suffer the lashes. But the whipping is so painful, that he stops in the middle and finally offers to pay for the fish. And so, the servant ends up paying for the fish anyway, but only after suffering all the other punishments as well. The parable is clear: Israel is so worried about it's world image, that it bends over backward and risks the lives of its soldiers to show they are not aggressors. But in the end, they get condemned anyway, like eaters of stinking fish.
