We Are Us And They Are Them - The Difference Is Torah!

B”H

- Comparing Judaism to islam is like saying that day is night, night is day, right is wrong, and wrong is right, capitalism is socialism and so on. You are saying that Torah is koran and that koran is Torah. That truth is lies and that lies are the truth, that we are them and they are us. I don’t buy into your secular confusion, Bones: Judaism is not Western and Jewish values are not Western values. Judaism is Eastern, ancient, profound, complex, beautiful and - moral. In Judaism morality and legality coincide! So, if the State of Israel for you has to be a non Jewish Western democratic [read Hellenistic] entity, than it really has not much Jewish reasons to be, does it? What’s the point in having a non-Jewish State on G-d’s biblical Land of Israel? Can you please explain this to us? What is the point in having this holiest of Land coerced, against G-d’s will, into a secular strait-jacket, as if it was America and as if the Jews here were Americans?

To Leah Goldsmith On Xtian Zionists

B”H

– There is only one way a gentile can become “righteous”: By accepting the Seven Noahide Laws upon himself, which is G-d’s universal message. The fact that the Yad Vashem museum issues “righteous gentile” certificates to those who help Jews is a purely secular exercise, usurping Jewish symbols and Jewish terminology for political, Zionist purposes. Halachicly gentiles do not become “righteous” by “loving us”. They become righteous by loving Hashem. The innovation, according to which the xtians’ love of the Jew is proof of their love of Hashem is false, false-false-false-false-false-false-false and false, in as much as they do not pray to Hashem. They pray to their man-god yeshu, therefore they hate Hashem and our G-d hates them. Therefore, we should categorically reject them, not because of what they do, but because of what they are! Besides, there is no way they can possibly love us, as Jews, if they hate Hashem. Ah sorry, there is one: They love us the way we “love” fish. We eat them.

The Author And The Shalom Hartman Center

B"H

- It should be clear to everyone that Donniel Hartman and his Shalom Hartman Center are outside of Judaism, with a declared goal to modify Torah to fit society rather than to do the Jewish thing and modify society to fit Torah. This is also of course an anti-Jewish piece in as much as Torah can not and must not be defined as "fanatic". And no, "rabbi" Hartman, Hanukah is not the Zionist holiday par excellence. It is a Jewish holiday par excellence and no one is interested in your "Jewish democratic liberal" society. What we want on the Land of Israel is Torah, not your innovations and prohibited “interfaith” relations!

Rav. Zuriel On Xtians Brought Into Judea And Samaria

בס"ד כ"ד חשון, תשע"ב



לכבוד אחים יקרים, תושבי יש"ע, ה' יברכם!



נשאלתי בענין מה היחס הראוי בו צריכים להתייחס לנוצרים הבאים לגור בינינו. זו היא שאלה קשה, כי מצד אחד הם מצהירים שברצונם לעזור לנו במלחמתנו נגד אויבינו הערבים שנוקטים בשיטות טרור נגדנו, ויש כאן שאלה של פקוח נפש. ואנו צריכים לכל עזרה שאפשר להשיג.



אבל מצד שני, יש "פקוח נפש" אחר. שלא יזיקו לנו באמונתנו. שלא יצודדו נפשות שיתקרבו יותר ויותר לרעיון הנצרות. חשש זה מתחזק יותר לענין הצעירים שלנו, נערים ונערות, שאם מדברים אליהם בעדינות ובנימוסים יפים, עלולים להתפתות. ויש כבר שמועות שחלק של המהגרים הנוצרים שבאים לגור ביש"ע, הם מסיונרים, והם מחלקים חוברות חומר הסברה וגם בשיחות אישיות מסבירים שבח ותהלה לאותו האיש, יש"ו. ויש כאן סכנה גדולה אפילו אם היה מדובר בנפש אדם בודד ההולך לאיבוד. כל שכן שהחשש הוא לרבים, ולא "רק" לאדם אחד.



צריכים אנו לחזור לדברי הרמב"ם (הל' עבודה זרה, סוף פרק עשירי) הקובע שאין לתת לשום גוי לגור ביננו עד שיקבל עליו ז' מצוות בני נח. וברור ברמב"ם (הלכות מאכלות אסורות, פרק יא הלכה ז) שאמנם הישמעאלים אינם מוגדרים כעובדי עבודה זרה. אבל הנוצרים הם בהחלט נחשבים עובדי עבודה זרה.



חשוב לציין דברי החזון איש, שאפילו לפי דעת המקילים, זה רק אמור אם מקיים ז' מצוות בני נח מפני שהקב"ה ציוה אותנו בהם בהר סיני. ואם הנכרי מקיים המצוות מפני הכרע שכלו אין זה נחשב "מקיים" (כך כתב הרמב"ם, בהלכות מלכים, סוף פרק ח). לכן כותב "חזון איש" (זרעים, דף 298 פסקא ג) יש לחשוש שהנכרים הללו לא ידביקו אותנו בכפירתם, כלומר במה שהם כופרים בסמכות של מעמד הר סיני. עד כאן דבריו. די לנו הכופרים הישראליים. אננו צריכים לייבוא נוסף של כופרים נכרים.



לכן מוטל על כל איש ואשה להזהר מהנוצרים האלו. אמנם יש להתנהג עמהם בנימוס וכבוד, בדרך ארץ (עיין מדרש קהלת רבה, פרשה יא). ודאי חלילה להזיק להם בגוף או ממון. אבל חלילה להתחבר אליהם, חלילה להשכיר להם דירה. חלילה לתת להם עבודה. עדיף לנו שיעזבו את ארצנו.



כן דברי האוהב אתכם, ורוצה בטובתכם באמת.

There Is Only One "Reconciliation"

B"H

- Accept Hashem as He accepts only one "reconciliation". Goyim are not allowed to invent gods for themselves and G-d's universal message is the Seven Noahide Laws, not the xtian yeshu.

B"H

- Indeed all those who love, fear and serve Hashem should reject xtians. Zionists or not Zionists, it does not matter at all. Why? Because Jews do not go by their worldly interests but by halacha, Jewish Law. The innovations of the innovators of the day are called reform "Judaism" and its aim is to change Torah to fit society rather than to do the Jewish thing and change society to fit Torah.

What Makes Us Strong? The IDF Or Hashem?

Parashat Vayishlach - Jewish Photosynthesis by Rabbi Eli Mansour

B"H - We read in Parashat Vayishlah of the angel that attacked Yaakob Abinu as he made his way back to Eretz Yisrael from the home of Laban. The Rabbis teach us that this angel was Satan himself. Every nation has a heavenly angel that advocates on its behalf, so-to-speak, in the heavens. Satan “volunteered” for the job of being the angel of the nation established by Esav, which represents evil and the antithesis of everything that Am Yisrael is meant to represent. Satan’s attack on Yaakob Abinu was launched in order to prevent Yaakob Abinu from establishing Am Yisrael, the nation that would, for all eternity, struggle against the evil of Esav. Fortunately, Yaakob Abinu won this battle, and although he was injured, symbolizing a diminution of Am Yisrael’s power, nevertheless, he triumphed over Satan and indeed we, his descendants, are still able to wage this struggle against the evil spiritual forces in the world.

Rav Elhanan Wasserman (1874-1941) raised the question of why Satan waited until the emergence of the third of our patriarchs before launching this assault. Why did he not try to attack Abraham Abinu, who founded the nation that was destined to be Satan’s nemesis? Wouldn’t it have been wiser for Satan to try to “nip it in the bud,” to cut off Am Yisrael at its very root, the moment Abraham Abinu came onto the scene? And even if, for whatever reason, Satan deemed it unwise to launch this assault against Abraham, why did he not attack during the time of Yishak? Why did he wait until the time of Yaakob?

Rav Wasserman answered this question by analyzing the particular points of strength of the three patriarchs. They were all towering spiritual figures, but each had his own “specialty,” his unique forte, if you will. Abraham excelled especially in the area of Hesed, loving kindness. But although he bequeathed this quality to his descendants, and Am Yisrael has always distinguished itself through its generosity, charity is not a uniquely Jewish quality. Many gentiles are also selfless and giving, as are many non-observant and unaffiliated Jews. Satan did not launch his attack against Abraham, because a nation that is defined primarily by Hesed is not guaranteed to endure. He did not feel threatened by Abraham, because a nation built mainly around loving-kindness, as important as this quality certainly is, will not likely last.

Yishak, too, did not pose an immediate risk to Satan. Yishak, who was offered as a sacrifice, signifies the quality of prayer (which is associated with sacrifices). Prayer, like Hesed, is a crucial aspect of religious life, but does not guarantee Am Yisrael’s survival. Many synagogues here in the United States and elsewhere were unable to continue past the first generation after their establishment. Satan did not feel threatened by Yishak because he knew that praying is not enough to produce another loyal generation of God-fearing Jews.

Yaakob Abinu, however, posed a grave threat to Satan. Yaakob is described as a “Yosheb Ohalim” (“tent-dweller”), a devoted student of Torah. His outstanding quality was Torah learning. Once Yaakob came onto the scene, Satan realized he was in trouble. A nation that devotes itself to learning and education is guaranteed to endure. If there are yeshivot where children are trained and educated to follow the nation’s laws, values and customs, the nation will continue to reproduce itself, generation after generation. And this is why Satan launched an attack against Yaakob. Seeing Yaakob’s commitment to Torah, Satan realized that Yaakob is indeed capable of producing an eternal nation that will hinder his attempts to promote evil. He therefore attacked Yaakob, and although he succeeded in inflicting an injury, making it more difficult for Yaakob and his descendants to fulfill their mission in the world, Yaakob prevailed.

Needless to say, every aspect of Judaism is critically important and may not be ignored. But we can learn from Satan that Torah education is what holds the key to Jewish survival. Satan can handle packed synagogues on Shabbat and charity events, but Torah learning is his kryptonite. It is our greatest weapon against him.

In nature there is a process called photosynthesis which is vital for life. Plants receive energy from the sun, and they process this energy in order to produce oxygen. Without this process, of course, we would not be able to live. In Judaism, we have another kind of “photosynthesis,” which occurs not in plants, but within our precious children. The children receive the “energy” from the Torah, and with this spiritual force they produce our “oxygen” – the key to our survival. When we send our children off to school to learn Torah, we are doing our part to produce our nation’s “oxygen,” ensuring our continued existence.

Torah study is the ammunition we need to fight the Satan. The more we invest in Torah education, the more successful we will be in this ongoing battle, and ensure that Kedusha will prevail and triumph over evil.

The appointment of the two comfortable deck chairs on the top of the tower for him & her are also a nice innovation that we haven not seen elsewhere and they certainly transmit a sense of relax and a promise of unforgetable sun-set views in a most romantic of settings.

Short Manifesto

B"H

Dear William,

- Thank you for your interest in Torah and the problems "settlers" are facing. As I don't know you I googled your email address and did not find any reference of you being Jewish. As far as your Jewish Yisrael membership is concerned this is a problem, because according to Torah only Jews can contribute to the development of the history of Israel, which is the declared goal of the group.

Having said that let me point out to you that the original project of the mailing-list is now largely overtaken by the event of the blogsphere and you are welcome to follow http://www.thetorahrevolution.blogspot.com.

The basic idea is that Torah is the G-d given Constitution of the Jews and that it gives us specific instructions also on what institutions to establish on the Land and on how to run them.

Having this in mind it is clear that the present State of Israel is not what is required from the Jewish people to strive for and to support and so the political horizon is to at least abstain from the vote.

30 plus per cent of Israelis already do this, so even if we are not a homogeneous group, we don’t start from scratch: Non voters are in fact the biggest slice on the cake-chart and the highest column on the bar-chart. So, we should make our alternative voice be heard.

It has been said that only what we think of as possible is possible. I think our job today is to make Torah seen by the Jews as a possibility: That it is not something to contemplate just in the synagogue, but rather a full time life experience, a project to implement around the clock, 24/7.

Shallow, Un-Jewish Thinking

Here is an "Israeli" who's first thought after receiving Hashem's blessed rain on the Land after 2000 years of deadly exile is: "winter is our first and last hope to wake up in the morning and think that maybe, by coincidence, or by mistake, without knowing it, we were accepted into the European bloc..". Well, talk for yourself Shaked! There are those of us here, and in great numbers thanks G-d, insane Jews according to you, who do not want to be accepted into the European block, who do not in fact want anything to do with the Europeans! Some of us went into great lengths to get away from them! Not just because they kept burning us alive for centuries and would keep doing so only if they could, but because they put themselves, again, on a wrong pass. I am talking about the European Union that does away with democracy in Europe. The European Parliament, in fact is a parliament only in name. It has no legislative power, it is only a consultative body: A huge deception! The real legislative power in Europe is solidly in the hands of the Council, a body made up by unelected nominees of the governments of the member States. What does it mean? It means that Europe done away with its democracy, with the separation of powers and through the EU it allows the governments to legislate. This concentration of powers in the hands of the executive of course is well known and Europe had it before: It is called totalitarism. So Jews in general and Israelis in particular, instead of longing for it, should be the first ones to denounce it in the strongest of terms and declare it inadmissible. Rainy season Sheked, indeed!

  בברכות הבוקר אנחנו אומרים "ברוך שלא עשני גוי".  אחת הפירושים על הברכה הוא ברוך ה' שאני יהודי, שמחשבותיי, ערכיי,הליכותיי, הם של ישראל. ברוך ה' שאומות העולם לא שלטו עלי כל-כך שהם כה השפיעו על החשיבה שלי, שלמעשה, הם יצרו אותו לפי רצונם. ברוך ה' שלא איבדתי את עצמאותי ולא הסירו תורת ה' מעל לשוני, זולת, שאלו, הגויים, מכתיבים לי מה שיצא מפי, ח"ו.
לפני חודשים מספר,בעיתון,המופץ ברחבי יהודה ושומרון,הופיע מאמר, אשר כותרתו,הייתה צריכה להיות "שלום רב למכחישי תורתך". כאילו נוכרים השתלטו על כותב המאמר  והוא נכנע לבקשתם. כמו גלעד שליט הצנום, בסרט וידאו של החמס.יהודי פשוט, ובריא, וחופשי, לא חושב ככה. ברוך ה' שלא עשני גויי.
 קודם כל כמה נקודות פשוטות וברורות.
"נוצרות היא עבודה זרה."( יום עיון על נוצרות- ישיבת עטרת כהנים י"ז בניסן תש"ע.)
אסור לכל אחת, נוכרי או ישראל לעבוד עבודה זרה, במיוחד בארץ ישראל.
אסור להניח נוצרים,כותים ,צדוקים,קראים,או יהודים רפורמים לחדש דת חדשה ובמיוחד, בארץ ישראל.
מענישים עובדי עבודה זרה ומחדשי דת, ובמיוחד, בארץ ישראל.

אותו נקודות באות לידי ביטוי בהלכות הבסיסיות של נדון דנן.
עיקר הציווי בעבודה כוכבים שלא לעבוד אחד מכל הברואים לא מלאך ולא גלגל ולא כוכב ולא מארבעה היסודות ולא מכל הנבראים... ."( רמב"ם הלכות עבודת כוכבים ב,א) 
כל המודה בעבודה זרה שהיא אמת.. זה מחרף ומגדף את השם הנכבד ונורא....לפיכך תולים עובד עבודת כוכבים כמו שתולים את המגדף ושניהם נסקלים. ..".  (שם ב,ו)
כל ע"ז שבית דין של ישראל ממיתין עליה בן נח נהרג עליה. (הלכות מלכים ט,ב)
מי שאינו  מודה בתורה שבעל פה ... הרי זה בכלל אפיקורוסין.מאחר שנתפרסם שהוא כופר בתורה שבעל פה ...(נשמטה כאן דרגת עונשו).הרי הוא כשאר כל האפיקורוסין והאומרין אין תורה מן השמים והמוסרין והמומרין.( הלכות ממרים ג,א וגם ב)
עכו"ם (נוכרי)שעסק  בתורה חייב... לא יעסוק אלא בשבע מצוות שלהן בלבד. ...אין מניחים אותן לחדש דת לעשות מצוות לעצמן מדעתן ...מודיעין אותו שהוא חייב מיתה על זה....(הלכות מלכים י,ט)
.מסתובבים בינינו ביהודה ושומרון בשנים האחרונות, וביתר שאת, עכשיו, נוצרים,מפיצי עבודה זרה, בגלוי או לא בגלוי, בהווה, או בעבר. כל אלו,מעצם העובדה שהם שייכים לאירגוני עכ"ם האלו, הם חסרי ההכנעה לשם ועמו הנדרשת כדי הם יזכו שאנחנו נקבלם.  יתייצבו מלכי הארץ ורוזנים נוסדו יחד על ה' ועל ה' ועל משיחו. (תהילים ב) לכן הובאו הנקודות לעיל על מנת להבהיר את זה בעליל. כל  פיטפוטי דמלתא בעלמא שלהם, על העם הנבחר והתגשמות הנבואה לא מסתירים עזות מצחם. גם סיועם הכספית וגופנית הוא כחזיר מפריס פרסה האומר כשר אני. מטרתם בזה ניתן ללימוד מהגמרא. חסד אומות חטאת-כל צדקה וחסד שאומות העולם עושין, חטא הוא להון שאין מכוונין אלא להתגדל בו. (בבא קמא י) כל יהודי נורמאלי  מבין את זה. ברוך ה' שלא עשני גוי.
מה עם אילוצי השעה? המעמד של ישראל קשה והמוסלמים מתחזקים לגשרינו מישובי יהודה ושומרון ח"ו.יש יהודים שרוצים לכרות ברית עם אותם עכ"ם.אבל עם  המשך ישיבתינו שם תבוא תמורת
החדרת  ובניית תשתית לנוצרים ודתם החוצפנית ונלוזה, אולי עדיף שהממשלה העליזה והמוסלמים יעקרו אותנו משם ומהטאומה שאנו מביאים במו ידינו על עצמינו בסיוע לע"ז. תארו לעצמכם, עם לאותם גורמים, הייתה היכולת להביא נוצרות להר הבית . לעת עתה, כנראה, הקדוש ברוך הוא וממוניו, המוסלמים,מצילינו מידם.וגם מהייסורים של נשיאת עול העוונות של ע"ז. ברוך ה' שלא עשני גוי.
 אחת מגדולי המלומדים של דורינו, יראה שמיים גדול,מביא באחת מספריו,מהסידור של האר"י ז"ל.שם יש פירוש על  הברכה,"שלא עשני גוי".הובא שמברכים כל בקר ולא פעם בחיים. היראה שמיים
מסביר, שבעת שינה, ניצוצות של גויים עלולים להתערב בנשמה, ח"ו. מקבלתינו את ע"ז, התמוהה ולא מובנת, ביהודה  ושומרון ,חוששני שזה קורה. אבל יד ה' תמיד על העליונה. בעזרת ה, אנחנו נחזור לעצמינו,"להעביר גילולים מן הארץ האלילים כרות יכרתו".                ברוך ה' שלא עשני גוי.

"Religious" Zionism

B"H

- "Religious" Zionism is seen by more and more Jews as idol worshipping the State. Stadlar's article is a reflection of this: Whenever Statenics act against Torah there will be violence in Israel as Hashem, our G-d, keeps a close eye on this Land. You seculars can fill up your mouths with the (civil) “law of the land” and with “democracy”, for many here there is a higher authority. If what you do is against Torah, chances are it won't pass smoothly.

What is worst, it carries out its pogroms on the Holy Land G-d gives to the Jews, a huge and public Chilul Hashem (desecration of G-d's Name). The IDF is an ant-Jewish force on G-d's Land and no Jews shall serve it: Jews wowed their oath of allegiance to Hashem, to our G-d, under the Mount in Sinai. These thugs promise to give even their lives for a replacement god, for the legal command-structure of the State, a reference to an idol, to a purely human command of other, Torah-hating thugs.

Stock markets will explode in euphoria from Tokyo to New York and the dollar, euro and yen will rise in value. Commodities like oil, gold and silver, T-bills will fall. Obama needs this war and needs to win it quick. I am bullish. Ah, at last but not at least, Hashem, our G-d is on our side, so Islamism will suffer another blow and the world will be a safer, more predictable, less crazy of a place.

B"H

- Let's not forget that while Israelis by and large like Italy, it cannot be said that this sentiment is returned by that society. Catholicism and socialism both contribute greatly to the anti-Jewish, anti-Israeli attitude. There is a television program called The Hyenas for example, on Berlusconi's own Italia 1 channel, which recently beamed out a number of broadcasts from Gaza and from the "Tunnels of Gaza", totally accepting the Hamas narrative. It is almost impossible to find a fair article on Israel in the Italian press and left leaning or xtian "pro-peace" so called "Friends of Israel" associations are but the norm. The sons and daughters of the Romans are not even aware, because they are not taught, of their historical role in shaping today’s world by the destruction of Jerusalem, the Temple and provoking the Diaspora. The Italian press routinely calls the Temple Mount the "Clearing of the Mosques" and even in the midst of the debt crisis Italian funds are pouring in to the PA coffers by the millions, either directly or through the EU.

The Jewish, and so your very own right too, to the Land of Israel is directly Torah derived, with other words immediately proportionate to our degree of adherence to Torah. Where do you think the skill of the pilots come from? From Barak?

The accumulated world trillions of debt is crashing down on us and on our unsustainable fiat (paper) money system. The salvation? Easy: Torah economics. What is Torah economics? A commodity, gold and silver based currency issued not as a loan by central banks, but by society for society, under strict, interest free conditions to Jews, with periodic corrections, with Shmita and Jubilee years re-setting the accounts back to zero. It is a perfect, G-d given system and of course no "Bank of Israel" comes even close to it: The State is anything but Jewish and everything it does is learned from the nations, instead of being the other way round. And, of course, we have to pay the consequences for our national stupidity and arrogance. So, I’m not complaining. Just telling you folks, there IS a better way: G-d’s.

On Xtians On The Land

B"H

- By blackmail I mean that the secular golden calf State of Israel traces its legitimacy to the approval of the nations, therefore it is only natural that it wants to be loved by them, especially by America. That’s where your tick comes in - in support of "cordial relations and of course, political and diplomatic support [of the nations] for the Zionist enterprise.." You say that most Jews support it.
Well, there are a few problems with this:

a) I'm not sure it is so. Are you?

b) Even if it was so, what difference would it make? Are we going by numbers or by truth?

c) Torah teaches us that we are to dwell alone (Num.23:9) Longing for international support is, per definition, an anti-Torah, erev rav mentality. Jews refer to Torah and trace their rights, one of which is to the Land, and duties to G-d.

With other words, Jews (supposed to) have a "Hashemist" enterprise, not a Zionist one and that is precisely why xtians should not be allowed in, even if they "love us".

Their “love” of us does NOT mean they love Hashem. In fact, by the very fact that they see it fit to worship yeshu, even if in conjunction with Hashem, makes them idol worshipers (Rambam, Hilichot Avoda Zara, chapter two, halacha one).

Conclusion: They hate Hashem and hate Jews having Jewish souls.

Besides, lifting the Land above Torah and doing anti-Torah things on it is at least counter-productive, wouldn't you agree? At worst of course it is a lot worse. A lot.

As far as your reading suggestion is concerned, no thank you, I won't take it up. It would not only be a waste of time for me to study the xtians, instead of Hashem and/or the Jews but actually it would be an outright prohibited activity: "The worshippers of false gods have composed many texts concerning their service, describing what is the essence of their service, what practices are involved, and what are its statutes. The Holy One, blessed is He, has commanded us not to read those books at all, not to think about them or any matters involved with them".

Secular Zionism Certified Dead Today

B"H

- I honestly believe that technically speaking, we are in the presence of a putsch: The Government, the executive branch of the State, with the participation of a President all too willing to abuse his power to pardon, take over the Judiciary branch of the State and for all practical purposes annuls most of its normal functioning: Life sentence becomes meaningless in Israel today and so for the Fogel murderers we have to pretend mandatory capital punishment.

That the so called Supreme Court should support this putsch is outright pathetic and illustrates that entire sectors of the State are occupied by a hard-core political mafia.

This legalized lawlessness in my view signals an end: As hardened Arab terrorists leave prison by the hundreds, the First Republic of the State of Israel seems to be imploding in front of our very eyes.

Change is in the air as the existent clearly is disfunctional. Secular Zionism as we know it has officially defunct and certified dead today.

Institutional Mess Up - An Open Letter To Caroline Glick

B"H

Hi Caroline,

Thank you for this piece.

In my view the problem created is not "just" moral first and strategic second: There are institutional and Jewish consequences.

First, the Shalit "deal" wipes out the meaning of the life sentence from the books in Israel. Second, it perpetrates the wholesale abuse of the presidential pardon.

To correct these distortions of the legal system we must now pretend mandatory death penalty, even if we are not pro-death penalty people, and the limitation of the presidential pardon to let's say 5 cases per tenure: Peres cannot belittle his unforgivable deeds of unleashing thousands of hardened terrorist on us by saying "I don’t forgive and I don't forget": In his quality as the president of this State, he does exactly that!

As far as the Jewish aspect is concerned, you have rightly pointed out that halachicly (by Jewish Law) we are prohibited to pay more for a hostage than his "worth".

Conclusion: By putting these aspects together we see that the State of Israel as we know it is neither Jewish nor it is democratic. So, what is it then? There is a colloquial term to describe such joints. We call them "Banana Republic"s

Wholesale Abuse Of Presidential Pardon Unacceptable

B"H

- Life sentence in Israel is dead. Now we know, the Fogel murderers will be set free. We only don't know when. In this light the death penalty is a must now. Also, presidential pardon must be curbed to let's say to 5 pardons per president. Law and Order just went down the drain folks!

Banana Republic

B"H

- Whereas I am happy for the Shalit family, the Israeli and the Jewish prospectives are different on this.
The Israeli prospective is that we are in front of the erosion of the life sentence as such as it becomes meaningless in front of our eyes. Now we know that the murderers of the Fogels of Itamar will be set free, the only thing we don't know is when. It also is obvious that there is a wholesale abuse of the presidential power to pardon. These two aspects can only be mitigated with a) mandatory death penalty and b) with the reduction of the power of a president to pardon to let's say 5 cases in total.
The Jewish aspect is that the State, as always, goes against Torah, as by halacha we are forbidden to pay more for a hostage than his worth.
If you combine these elements the grand total is that we don't live in a Jewish State and even less in a democratic one. The short for such a joint in colloquial is: banana republic.

It simply means that we erode the life sentence in Israel by a wholesale abuse of the presidential pardon.

Re: Laci

B"H

- The very purpose of the EU is to provide a totalitarian system on Europe. Let me explain: The European Parliament is a parliament only in name, even if it is elected with universal proportional representation, it is not a legislative body, it has only consultative powers. The European law-making body is the Council and it is made up by people nominated by the member States. If you turn this concept around, it means that the EU serves the member States precisely to bypass their national parliaments and introduce government (executive branch) produced legislation. Today about 90% of all new laws enter the books this way, meaning the erosion of separation of powers, a fundamental guarantee in democracy. This erosion leads to a concentration of powers that historically we have seen only in totalitarian regimes, which is the Europe of today. No wonder it allocates about a million Euros every day to support the “palestinian” “cause”, the most visible tip of a whole underlying evil iceberg.

As long as we, the Jews, keep thinking of "them", of the State of Israel, as "we", as if it was Moshe, and refuse to see that it is a golden calf we are dancing around, it is clear that we run a higher than necessary risk of being destroyed by G-d. Just by doing a simple thing, accepting His Torah on ourselves and refuting Mr. Kook's replacement distortions, we could annul this risk. His Torah does not even mention knesset and explicitly prohibits political parties and "democracy". Wake up Jews, we can't afford to improvise here, on G-d's Land. In Hilchot Melachim Chapter One Halacha One the Rambam says: "Israel was commanded to fulfill three mitzvot upon entering the Land:
- a) To choose a king, as Deuteronomy 17:15 states: Appoint a king over yourselves.
- b) To wipe out the descendents of Amalek, as Deuteronomy 25:19 states: Erase the memory of Amalek
- c) To build G-d's Chosen House, as Deuteronomy 12:5 states: Seek out His Presence and go there.

Now, I understand that there are midrashim that say otherwise, however the point here is not so much the nitty-gritty of the order of things to do. What I'm hammering about is that we should allow ourselves to see the big picture, the whole forest, with other words what the State really is and what real dangers it brings onto our collective head. The present State of Israel is not only not doing any of the "Jewish things" above, it is pro-actively fighting against the realization of any of these G-dly, Jewish projects: As we are called upon to distinguish between holy and secular, let's do it! Just talking about it week after week at havdala, is worthless.

- This is a reply to the following Important Rosh Hashana Piece from Israel - By Yekutiel Guzofsky:

Let us understand the idea behind the shofar – and let us hear the wake-up-cry of the shofar before it is too late.

The Talmud says (Tractate Rosh Hashana, 16b) that if we do not blow shofar at the beginning of the year we will hear terrible sounds at the end of the year, (sounds of distress).

One might ask a basic question:

Do we not blow shofar? Millions hear the blasts of the shofar in their synagogues on the High Holidays? Yet we are hearing the miserable sounds of distress at this year’s end as in many prior years.

SHOFAR WE HEARD – YET MISERABLE CRIES OF DISTRESS WE ALSO HEAR

Over recent weeks, we heard fatal terror attacks in Tel Aviv. We heard sirens of war and counted our dead in rocket attacks on Beer Sheba, Ashdod and other Southern Israeli towns and cities, with synagogues and schools destroyed. We heard the cry of war from Turkey and from the people of Egypt. The Israeli embassy in Cairo was trashed, and six of the guards were almost lynched. Jews were murdered in a deadly terror attack on the Egyptian border. A big rabbi was murdered by one of his disciples in Southern Israel. Thousands of homeless, protested throughout the land. The United Nations Committee blamed Israel for using excessive and unreasonable force to maintain the blockade on Gaza. The PLO petitioned the UN to establish a modern day Nazi state in place of most of Israel. Bibi and Obama may be rejecting the state today but both endorse a PLO state and a surrender from most of the land, if Abbas will promise peace and pretend to accept Israel, as a Jewish state. A father and toddler were murdered in cold blood on the road between Jerusalem and Hebron, as the police initially tried to cover-up the murder. A hurricane left dozens dead throughout the heavily Jewish populated areas of New York and New Jersey. Several of those killed were Orthodox Jews, one a Holocaust survivor. An 8 year old religious Jewish boy was murdered by another religious Jew in Brooklyn, and they found parts of the boy’s body in the murderer’s refrigerator. This all happened in the last month or two of the year. And this is only a partial list. Did we not blow shofar last year??!!

TO SOUND OR TO HEAR THE SHOFAR?

Perhaps this question can be answered by understanding the dispute about the blessing we make on the shofar. If we properly understand the different views about the Shofar-blessing , this will shed light on the underlying idea that stands behind the mitzvah of blowing the shofar. According to Rabeinu Tam the blessing refers to the blowing of the shofar, (litkoa kol shofar) while the Rambam and Shulchan Aruch say the blessing is to “hear the sound of the shofar”. (Rashi maintains that we say both to blow and to hear.) There are many questions asked on the view of the Rambam such as the fact that most verses that refer to the shofar or the trumpets speak of the act of blowing the shofar and not hearing the shofar. Also, if a deaf person, or a minor blows the shofar, even if it is a perfect sounding of the shofar, one that hears the blasts does not fulfill the mitzvah. Why is this so, if he heard the sounds, and if the essence is to hear the sounds of the shofar?

SOUNDING THE SHOFAR IS NOT ENOUGH, NOR IS HEARING IT – ONE NEEDS TO LISTEN, TO ACT!

Most commentaries believe that all of the opinions agree that the mitzvah is composed of both blowing and hearing the shofar. However, the argument is over which component do we accent and which is the the main aspect of shofar…Without going into great detail, we can offer the following explanation:

Hearing the shofar is not enough, just as sounding the shofar alone is not enough. Even according to the view of the Rambam and the Shulchan Aruch that holds that we say “to hear the shofar” in our blessing, they would agree that the mere technical hearing of the shofar is meaningless if we are not listening to the sound, if we are not committing a self-act of blowing that shofar into ourselves. Yes, we must not only hear the shofar but we must listen to the warning of the shofar, the wake-up-call to repent. We must blow the shofar from our ears into our hearts. We must see the warnings and tremble as the verse says.

Thus, when the Talmud says, that one who does not blow shofar at the beginning of the year, will surely hear miserable horrible sounds of tragedy by the yearend, the gemara is talking about the blowing as understood by the Rambam and Shulchan Orach (as well as the other views) A blowing that is translated into listening and into internalizing. A blowing that is one of speaking out as well as hearing the wake-up call of the shofar. For one who refuses to hear that call to teshuva, and who refuses to change and correct his evil ways and to act upon it, will be forced to endure tragedies and plagues until he wakes up to return to teshuva. And G-d gives us an opportunity to do teshuva and pushes off the decree as far as he can. But what can be done if we refuse to hear the shofar? He sounds clear warnings through tragedies to help us recognize where the faults lie and what we must do to repent. He adds those horrible sounds in the weeks prior to Rosh Hashanah with the hope that those events combined with the upcoming shofar blasts will yet inspire us to repent, before the decree of the next year is upon us. 40 days of Shofar together with those events at the close of the year. 40 days of shofar from the 1st of Ellul until the Yom Kippur on the Tenth of Tishrei.

40 DAYS AND 40 YEARS TO REPENT –

G-d even offers 40 year periods of grace after historic events, offering us 40 years to internalize what needs to be done, to decide our destiny and to prevent the bloodshed of an unnecessary decree. Such was the case before the destruction of the First and Second Temples. So often, as Rabbi Kahane points out in his prophetic book 40 Years, is the number 40 connected to punishment, teshuva, or a last grace period to yet repent. 40 lashes. 40 years in the wilderness as punishment for lacking faith in G-d and placing our fear and faith in gentiles. 40 sah - the measurement of water in the mikveh – that purifies the impure. 40 days for Ninveh to repent in the book of Yona. The flood of forty days and forty nights. And 40 days of the Shofar from the beginning of Elul until Yom Kippur.

40 YEARS FROM THE CREATION OF STATE

If we count 40 years from the establishment of the state of Israel, we will reach 1988. G-d in His infinite mercy gave us 40 years to turn the state of Israel into a full Jewish state. We had 40 years to determine and sculpt the true character of the state. Would this be a Hebrew speaking Portugal or one that is truly Jewish, that is governed by Jewish law and the Torah. Would we finally place our faith in G-d or continue to bow and prostrate ourselves to the dictates of the gentiles? In the years preceding the 40th year, there was an open debate and conflict about the very character of the state. Should Israel be a Jewish state or a democracy? If Judaism contradicts modern western principles of democracy, which should rule? In 1988 the internal conflict that rocked Israel was resolved. Judaism lost the battle, as the High Court of Israel refused to overturn a knesset election committee banning of a party that based its entire platform on Jewish law. The state of Israel decided to ban Torah and oust Rabbi Kahane from the Knesset for laws based on Torah that he proposed to legislate in the Knesset. And we saw the Intifada.

40 YEARS FROM THE SIX DAY WAR

If we count 40 years from the miraculous Six Day war of 1967 we reach the great national debate of the years preceding the expulsion from Gush Katif and Northern Shomron. Prior to 2007, Israel again was torn between two opposing worlds, given the chance, to yet again choose between sanctifying G-d’s name or desecrating His name. Israel chose to run away from Gaza and Northern Shomron and to expel thousands of Jews. Again the choice was made, not to expel our enemies, as G-d and logic dictates, but rather a futile attempt to appease the nations of the world, only to bring the missiles closer to Beer Sheba and Tel Aviv. We made the choice: And our fear of the gentiles and lack of faith in G-d brought upon us, Gilad Shalit the war in Gaza and the second war in Lebanon. As well as the ongoing fear of rockets from the very areas we have surrendered.

40 YEARS FROM THE YOM KIPPUR WAR – THAT STARTED ON OUR 40TH DAY OF REPENTANCE

If we count 40 years from the Yom Kippur War of 1973, we will reach 2013. Yes, we are entering into yet another final cycle as we rapidly approach the point where we can still determine our fate and avert further tragedy. Will we assert our sovereignty over Judea and Samaria and the Temple Mount or will we continue to allow the biblical lands of Eretz Yisrael to slip away from us? Will we show faith in G-d or continue to suffer the natural consequences brought upon our heads for placing our faith in the nations?

BLAST THE TRUMPETS – MAKE NOISE TO CALL FOR TESHUVA AND AVERT TRAGEDY

The Rambam says in Hilchot Taaniyot, that one who sees tragedy around him and who refuses to see the hand of G-d and to search his ways to learn from the events around - him how to correct his ways, will be brought more “coincidences” until he wakes up to repent. Indeed, one, who calls the events a coincidence, will be delivered more coincidences, until he wakes up. In the Rambam’s words, Rambam, Hilchot Taniyot, Cahapter 1, Halacha 1-3:

ONE MUST RECOGNIZE THAT TRAGEDY IS FROM G-D – so that we search why and repent

“It is a mitzvah to shout and sound the trumpets upon any tragedy that befalls the community. As it says, (Behalotcha) ‘When an oppressor besieges you, sound the trumpets’, anything that brings sorrow to you such as drought…this is the way of teshuva. That when sorrow befalls upon you and you shout about it and make noise, all will know that this is because of your evil ways…and this will cause the trouble to go away. (Explained to mean that when you understand the cause of the tragedy and do teshuva to mend your ways, the troubles go away, after you have repented or accepted upon yourself to correct your ways). But if you refuse to shout and to make noise, but rather you say, this is only a natural coincidence – this is the way of cruelty and only causes them to further attach themselves to their evil ways. And the tragedy will add more tragedies…in other words, G-d brings the tragedies so that you repent, if you say it is a coincidence, I will bring upon you the wrath of more coincidences.”

THE ESSENCE OF THE SHOFAR – A WAKE-UP CALL

The Rambam in Hilchot Teshuva (Chapter 3, halacha4) says, in explaining the essence of the call of the shofar, “Awaken those sleeping from their slumber, search your ways and repent remembering your creator, those who forget the truth…and make the mistake in their sleep in emptiness and waste which will not save them or help them. Look into your souls and correct your evil ways…”

THE SHOFAR IS A WAKE-UP-CALL FOR THOSE WHO NOT ONLY HEAR THE BLASTS BUT WHO LISTEN. THE TRAGEDY IS ANOTHER FORM OF WAKE UP CALL FOR THOSE WHO REFUSE, ON THEIR OWN TO SEE AND TO HEAR WHEN G-D GIVES US CLEAR SIGNS TO WAKE US UP. UNFORTUNATELY AS IT SAYS IN TEHILIM 115, THERE ARE THOSE WITH EYES WHO DOI NOT SEE AND WITH EARS WHO DO NOT HERA. There are those who see the tragedy but who do not see, and who refuse to listen.

CHAFETZ CHAIM MADE A FAST DAY FOR A HURRICANE IN JAPAN

The Chafetz Chayim, proclaimed a fast in 1923 after hearing about an earthquake in Japan that caused the death of many in Japan in and around Tokyo. The news reached him long after the Japanese tragedy. When he was asked why he declared a fast day, the Chafetz Chayim explained that any tragedy in the world is only to cause the Jewish people to search their ways and to repent.

TRAGEDIES CRASH UPON OUR HEADS AND WE SEE AND HEAR NOTHING

We saw tragedy in Japan this year as well. But I speak not of that tragedy earlier this year. What can be said of us, as we watch tragedy after tragedy crashing upon us, and as we refuse to ask ourselves what we need to correct? Not only do we see these events and these tragedies as coincidences, we do far worse, as we see the tragedies and curses as blessings and often hide the reality of the tragedies. There is no hope of correcting our personal and national sins if we do not see the tragedy. G-d in His infinite mercy gives us hints and clues that nobody could make up. Yet we choose not to hear and not to see.

RABBIS IN AMERICA FEAR FOR JEWS IN ISRAEL – BUT IRENE HITS THERE

Before Ellul, great Rabbis in America gave a halachic ruling that yeshiva students should not leave America to go to Israel due to the dangers posed to them in Israel. Spiritual and physical dangers in Israel? That very week there was a historic and unprecedented hurricane in all of the Torah centers around New York and New Jersey, leaving Orthodox Jews dead and homeless. The name of the hurricane was Irene! Sounds like Iran. One thinks they will escape the dangers of Israel, in Borough Park, Monsey and Lakewood? One worries about the poor Jews in Israel, threatened by Iran? Irene can strike in Brooklyn.

ISRAEL REJOICES OVER PALMER COMMISSION THAT PROHIBITS JEWISH SELF-DEFENSE

The Palmer Commission in the U.N. blames Israel for using excessive force to save the Jewish hostages that had been taken on the Marmara ship. The fools in Israel “qvell” with joy, as Palmer, on the one hand, accepts Israel’s right to make a blockade. Palmer, however, rejects the right of the Jews to enforce the blockade and to save her soldiers that were moments away from being lynched. It rains and we see sun. We refused to take the necessary action, sending our finest soldiers in with toy paint-guns, and we risk their lives and end up getting condemned anyhow, and we just don’t get it. We refuse to see the collapse of Israel’s borders and the dissolution of any deterrent force we once had.

INNOCENT PALMERS LOST DUE TO OUR SILENCE OVER CRIMINAL ISRAELI ACCEPTANCE OF PALMER

G-d brings about the murder of two innocent Jews, at the same time that the United Nations meets again to discuss the type of Israeli surrender to be imposed. As the U.N. meets to discuss PLO statehood, Asher and his toddler son Yehonatan PALMER are taken from us. But we refuse to see any connection. The innocent Palmers shall be taken for no crime they committed due to our silence and refusal to fight the criminal Palmer report, and for our refusal to speak out and shout against a government that continues to appease the criminal Palmers and the evil nations of the world, sacrificing the innocent CHILDREN OF Israel on their futile altar of appeasement to the nations.

OUR LEADERS COVER-UP THE TRAGEDIES -

Yehonatan and his father have fallen. In the bible Yehonatan and his father Shaul also fall, and the reason given in David’s poetic eulogy is the refusal to teach the children of Judah archery. Here we have a government who disarms Jews and who refuses to allow her soldiers to shoot back with the necessary deterrent force against our enemies. But our sin is far worse. Not only to refuse to see the blatant warnings from Heaven but our leaders cover up the tragedies and distort the facts to prevent good people from taking action to save themselves. They tell us that terror attacks are coincidental accidents or even the fault of the reckless driver.

One has to be absolutely blind and deaf not to see the hand of G-d in the tragedies that are befalling us. We watch the timid faithless government of Israel send Israeli troops to destroy houses in Migron, to appease the nations and to maintain our fragile peace with our neighbors and peace-partners as our closest peace partner raids and destroys our house of peace and our embassy in Cairo. Instant retribution, measure for measure and we see nothing and hear nothing.

SOUNDS OF PALMER AND OF POLLARD

This is what the Talmud means when it says that, one who does not blow the shofar, will hear the sounds of misery at the year’s end. It does not mean the technical ritual of shofar blowing that we all excel in. It means the ability to hear the shofar and to re-sound it into our own hearts. It means the ability to hear the pain of Yonathan Palmer (sounds almost like Yonatan Pollard). This is what the Rambam means when he says not to view tragedy like a coincidence, otherwise we will get yet another year of escalating tragedy and worse. And G-d gives us enough hints to understand what we need to correct.

Yes, on a personal level we must show our faith in G-d as well as on a national level. We have reached a critical crossroad in Jewish history rapidly approaching the year preceding yet another 40 year cycle of mercy, to repent before the storm. Will we have the courage and the faith to blow the shofar and to take the necessary action to sanctify G-d’s name? Do we truly believe that G-d can save us from Obama and from Turkey? Will we take the necessary actions of faith such as annexing Judea and Samaria and the Temple Mount, driving out our hostile enemies and taking a preemptive strike against the nations who openly call for our destruction?
