They Are <BR>A-F-R-A-I-D

They don't know what happened to them. They truly thought that with the deportation and the destruction of Gush Katif and Northern Samaria that they would succeed in finally crushing us. They truly thought that after this terrible summer, the Jewish camp would finally behave as requested: like quiet and docile sheep of the "shepherd".

The forces of evil in the government, the State Attorney's Office, the police and the media are in a state of shock. They don't know what happened to them. They truly thought that with the deportation and the destruction of Gush Katif and Northern Samaria that they would succeed in finally crushing us. They truly thought that after this terrible summer, the Jewish camp would finally behave as requested: like quiet and docile sheep of the "shepherd" - the dictator Ariel Sharon (The Shepherd is the name of a new biography on of Sharon, which just came out in Hebrew).

They truly thought that after the destruction of Gush Katif and northern Samaria, the Jewish camp would focus exclusively on quiet Panim El Panim (face to face meetings) activity in Afula and Hadera, and on slogans like "With Love We Will Be Victorious" - activities and slogans that don't disturb in the least the dictatorship of Sharon and the gang of deportation criminals that surround him.

The forces of evil, of Ariel Sharon and Shimon Peres, actually expected that after this summer, the Jewish camp would totally despair. The deportation forces could then remove the rest of the Jews of Judea and Samaria, and make the entire area Judenrein. Their supporters in the Jewish camp would not dare to protest.

But, lo and behold! All of a sudden, it transpires that the Jewish camp is still alive. And it isn't just alive, it's kicking, breathing, raising its head and daring to say: I'm here! If you thought that you destroyed us, then you are terribly wrong! If you thought that we had ceased to fight for the Land of Israel - then you are wrong, big time!

To the astonishment of Sharon's corrupt system, a new movement has arisen, with thousands of youth, who are organized, proud, strong and not afraid - not of the Arabs, not of the leftists and not of the Sharon government. Yes, those thousands of youth who struggled for Gush Katif and northern Samaria and who have organized anew call themselves "the Land of Israel Youth". Youngsters from the ages of 13 to 25, who are capable of organizing and simultaneously establishing four outpost settlements in different places, with two hundred and fifty of them in each place.

The slogan of these youth frightens the entire system: "We Love You, The Land Of Israel". This slogan is tantamount to incitement and sedition. The regime of the dictators Sharon and Peres cannot tolerate anyone who still dares to express their love for "the Land of Israel". The Sharon-Peres regime is a-f-r-a-i-d of proud Jews who declare that they do not consent to enter ghettos. That they do not want to confine themselves within fences. The Sharon-Peres regime is a-f-r-a-i-d of proud Jews who proclaim that they are sick and tired of being second-class citizens, while all Arabs in Judea and Samaria are treated like first-class citizens. The Sharon-Peres regime is a-f-r-a-i-d of proud Jews who dare to walk about the land, plant, demonstrate a presence, everywhere in the Land of Israel. The Sharon-Peres regime is a-f-r-a-i-d of proud Jews who are not afraid to loudly proclaim: "All the Land of Israel belongs to the Jewish people." The Sharon-Peres regime is a-f-r-a-i-d of proud Jews who say: "Perhaps you succeeded in destroying Gush Katif and northern Samaria, but the next time, we will not be so nice and innocent. The next time, you will not succeed. And this is not all, with God's help, we will yet return to Gush Katif and Northern Samaria."

And because the Sharon-Peres regime is afraid of this new youth movement, it attacks it so strongly and brutally, to try and subdue it before this becomes a mass movement. After what happened last Thursday during the evacuation of the four outposts, we can no longer have any doubts that the security forces received a green light, and an explicit order, to break the bones of anyone belonging to or assisting the Land of Israel Youth. The media aids the Sharon regime. It spreads blood libels, as if the youth were "rioting", "going wild" and "attacking", when the opposite is the case. The attackers are the security forces, who break the bones of the "youth".

It is extremely important that the adults in the Jewish camp not fall into the divide-and-rule trap that the Sharon-Peres dictatorship is setting up for us. It must not begin to denounce these wonderful youth. For example, after the publication of the photograph of the officer whose face was injured at Elon Moreh, there was no need for the heads of the Council of Jewish Settlements in Judea, Samaria and Gaza to come out with a statement against the youth. Rather, the opposite. A forceful announcement should have been released, saying: "We wonder how many youths' ribs that officer broke for their defending themselves." There has been no investigation of the facts. That officer might just be lying. He and his soldiers acted brutally against the youth. He is using this to besmirch the settler public and delegitimize them.

I call upon the entire public of the Jewish camp to support the Land of Israel Youth, with both moral and financial support. Additionally, we must organize to file personal civil lawsuits against every policeman or soldier who dares to touch our children. I, too, do not intend to remain silent after the severe mistreatment I suffered at the hands of the three detectives who brutally kidnapped me in broad daylight, without any cause, in Efrat. They verbally and physically attacked me in their car. Those police officers should be made accountable for what police brutality they rendered to me.

We, the generation of adults who struggled against the criminal Oslo Accords, are proud to have raised such a marvelous generation of youth. They are following in the footsteps of Calev ben Yephuneh and Joshua bin Nun, continuing the struggle for the conquest of the Land of Israel. They are and continue to be faithful to the people of Israel, the Land of Israel and the Torah of Israel. Our youth will undoubtedly succeed; under the age-old admonition, "Go forth and triumph."
