The article Leave Lili Alone drives home the fact that a caste society exists in Israel; for Leftist effetes there is total democracy and for their opponents for which there is a police state. The current crop of corrupt, self-interested, agendized politicians have cast the Religious in total negative, sub-human terms. Why should Arik Sharon and his deceased wife be any more privileged than the 10,000 Jews he evicted at legalized gunpoint and now taunts and mistreats by withholding the compensation that they are entitled to? And why should his deceased wife be any more privileged than the deceased Gush Katif residents which he hard-heartedly uprooted from their graves? Leaders lead by example and the current prime minister is a poor example of a national leader!
I followed up the previous word of Torah with the following;
Withstanding and Defying a Gezeira Rah
By Moshe Burt
I wrote previously regarding the contrast between the story behind the Unesaneh Tokef tefillah (expressing the seriousness of the day): the Gezeira Rah (evil decree) faced by R’ Amnon of Mainz and his Kehilla of forced conversion to Christianity dating back about 1,000 years, and the Gezeira Rah that we are currently living through regarding the forced expulsion of Jews from divinely ordained Jewish Land and handing that land over to avowed enemies bent on the eradication of the Jewish people. As previously stated, the Unesaneh Tokef tefillah is recited on both days of Rosh Hashana and on Yom Kippur.
During the 10 days between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur , I wrote a word of Torah entitled “Unesaneh Tokef 5766: Emphasizing the Intense Kedusha of the Day” in which I spoke of the comparison of the recent government of Israel decree of expulsion of Jews from Jewish land and the handing over of these lands to an avowed enemy bent on our destruction, and the dire threats of 1,000 years ago made by the Bishop of Mainz against the Jews unless they complied with his demand that they convert to Christianity. This decree brought R’ Amnon of Mainz to ask the Bishop of Mainz for 3 days to consider the demand.
With this news report, I am beginning a switch over from my homemade news portal to a real blog: “The Sin of Expulsion” Blog where the implications and consequences of the expulsion of 10,000 Jews from Gush Katif and the Shomron will be fully examined so that, Please G’d, we will never see it’s repetition.
