We Could Have Saved Gush Katif and Northern SamariaI follow the developments surrounding the holding or cancellation of the parade, and I am very sad about what this means: now it has been proven, once and for all, that we could have saved Gush Katif and northern Samaria.
Restraint is Not HeroismWho knows if things would not have turned out differently if the Gush Katif leadership and rabbis had acted as does Sderot's leaders, and exceeded all bounds to protest, to cry out and - mainly - not to remain silent.
Psychiatrist Needed UrgentlyIf we want to save the settlement enterprise in Judea and Samaria, and thereby the very existence of the State of Israel, we apparently will have to begin with a considerable portion of our national-religious public receiving treatment for a mental disease that is deeply entrenched within us.
We Don't Have the Luxury of Not VotingThe elections are in two weeks, and I want to specially address those among us who declare that they don't intend to vote. I, too, feel only contempt and revulsion for the election campaign.
We've Stopped Being Wimps!If we want this to stop once and for all, then we must learn from the Arabs in Galilee: to act in such a way that we will deter the police, who will prefer to stand on the side, "with their hands in their pockets."
They Are <BR>A-F-R-A-I-DThey 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".
Building Must Come From the DestructionAbout a month and a half after the deportation of the Jews from Gush Katif and northern Samaria and the handing over of the area to the Arab enemy, we still cannot absorb the dimensions of the horror, but there is one thing that we do know: this cannot go on!
Yes, the Doctor is to BlameIf we wish to be victorious in the next battle for the Land of Israel, we must ensure that the official leadership of the National Camp, whose struggle failed, will not continue to lead us.
This Is How We Will Cancel the DecreeThis is it. We've come to the bottom line of the struggle. If some supernatural miracle does not occur in the next week, then we must organize and act, to bring about, with our own hands, the natural miracle that, with G-d's help, will result in the cancellation of the deportation decree.
Just Before Communications Are CutI am writing to you now, because very soon, all communications with Gush Katif will be blocked. Yes, we were told that, closer to August 15, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon will give instructions to block all phone and Internet lines in Gush Katif, and will prevent the media from entering the area in order to tell the world what is going on.
Prepare for Provocation and Blood LibelThe short history of the modern State of Israel teaches us that when the Israeli Left is panicky and fears losing control of the country, it is capable of doing anything to maintain its standing and power.
Relief and Deliverance Will Come to the Jews of Gush KatifI can't begin to describe the beauty of this place. The blue sea, the clean sand, the dunes and the palm trees turn this into an earthly Paradise. I end our first week in Gush Katif with the most optimistic feeling that, with God's help, we will succeed in frustrating Sharon's Plan of Destruction.
And What Are You Doing This Summer?It cannot be that a Jew who is loyal to his land and his heritage will stay home with arms folded and watch the horrendous events on television. Some will come months before the uprooting date. Some will come for two weeks, some for one. But no one will stay at home.
The Man of the Letter AlefLike Mordechai the Jew, Adir Zik was a proud Jew, who "would not kneel or bow low" to all the corrupt elites in Israel. Like Mordechai the Jew, Adir always knew what our internal and external enemies were plotting.
Israel Has Not Learned the Lesson of the HolocaustAs long as Israel does not understand that the Arabs who murder us daily are the successors of the Nazis, and that their goal is to finish what Hitler, may his name be blotted out, did not succeed in completing - that is, the destruction of the Jewish people - then Israel has not learned the lesson of the Holocaust.
I Don't Believe Dept. Insp. Assaf RavidCome on, who are they trying to fool here? The police arrest protesters all the time - usually for no crime at all. And now, a settler who presumably "pushed a police officer and turned him into a cripple" wasn't arrested on the spot? Who believes such nonsense?
Chutzpah and Hypocrisy!Let's imagine for a moment what would have happened if CEO Arik Reichman of the Tnuva company had said that the Arab population in Israel is a "malignant cancer in the heart of the country."
An Open Letter to Minister Limor LivnatI want to try and understand how it is that you and some of your fellow Likudniks are so frightened of Ariel Sharon. I want to believe that you, personally, are not corrupt and concerned only about your Volvo.
Destroying the Party That Elected HimAriel Sharon has reached the ripe old age of 76. At that old age he realistically has concluded that he does not expect to be re-elected. Accordingly, he no longer needs the Likud Party that elected him. Being a former army general, he is used to having his own way, and readily dismisses views that do not agree with him. Not only that, he portrays those who oppose his views as "rebels" and "disloy
To Prevent Further Missile AttacksWhen will this government properly respond to such unprovoked attacks? When will this government take the necessary action to protect its civilians, as it claims is its highest priority? Sadly, it has utterly failed up to now, because it has basically taken the wrong approach. It destroys only individual homes of terrorists involved, rather than involving the entire Arab community to meet its resp
Tali Fahima, Shimon Peres and Yossi BeilinTali Fahima is suspected of involvement in a terrorist attack because she agreed to transfer some explosive charge? In the context of the Oslo accords, Shimon Peres and Yossi Beilin transferred thousands of weapons and ammunition to the Arab terrorists, ignoring that these weapons would be directed against Jews.
Did Menachem Begin Err? - Part IIUri Elitzur did not recommend Begin's policy of restraint - with the consequent shock and outrage at his statement. In my humble opinion, Menachem Begin's policy of restraint has resulted in the formation of an image of the nationalist camp as a poor, unfortunate <I>nebech</I>....
Did Menachem Begin Err? - Part IThe entire country was in an uproar when Uri Elitzur, editor of the <I>Nekuda</I> monthly and director-general of the Prime Minister's office under Binyamin Netanyahu, called for refusal to obey the order to uproot settlements and even justified violence.
After 2005: No Longer Any Jews in EuropeThe European Union resolved to put an end to the phenomenon. After lengthy deliberations, a press conference was held in which the Chairman of the European Union announced a dramatic program that would constitute a final solution to the problem of anti-Semitism. The name of the program: "Disengagement From Europe".
Black Day for the Jewish PeopleWhile the seven dissidents to the government vote was an improvement over the sparse two that then dissented, the present government's vote was nevertheless a black day indeed for the Jewish People.
Can the Left Claim Innocence?If we had a truly nationalist government, it long ago would have positively responded to the requests to place the Oslo Accord criminals on trial.
A Disaster for Israel<i>In addition to the troubles from Gaza, there are serious problems from the Palestinian State in the east. A quarter of a million Arab refugees - men, women, and children - are marching towards Jerusalem to pray on the Temple Mount. From there, they intend to march to Sheikh Munis (north Tel Aviv) and other villages in the Gush Dan area that their families abandoned in the '48 war. We are waitin
The Poll Will Determine NothingThe destruction of outposts is just a full dress rehearsal for the real show that Ariel Sharon plans - the uprooting of totally legal settlements, razing them to the ground, and the expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Jews ? men, women and children. It is important that we understand the gravity of the situation: the moment that Sharon gave the order to destroy the synagogues in Tapuach and in K
What Did Lilly Sharon Mean?Lilly Sharon asked the woman: "Do you know the parable of Jotham?" G. was not familiar with that parable, but Lilly did not attempt to further explain.
Limor Livnat, What Happened to You?The Minister, losing her equanimity, actually made these wild statements to the media: "Extremist elements, such as Feiglin and his followers, who were never a part of the Likud movement, and who are not from the Likud, are trying to take over the ruling party, and thereby the government as well."
About Pigs and Transfer of JewsQuestion: If 120 Knesset members and an overwhelming majority in the government were to legislate the obligatory eating of pork, would those who observe <i>kashrut</i> obey this "democratic decision"? Obviously not.
The <i>Yesha</I> PlanHere is the place to remind you that the only political plan with which <i>Moetset Yesha</i> is charged is the excellent plan called "All of <i>Eretz Israel</i> belongs to the Jewish People of Israel, in accordance with the Torah of Israel and the Promise of the Lord of the Universe."
Stop the Leftist Occupation!The Bolshevik dictatorship has struck once again. The directors of Arutz-7 (Israel National Radio) were convicted. The holy cannon of the leftist judicial system, which represents a minority of the people, is trying to gag the national camp, which speaks for the majority of the people.
Are Demonstrations Effective?You certainly are describing a trend over the past few years, where the national camp has stopped going out in masses in the streets in order to demonstrate, and this issue certainly needs to be addressed and discussed.
Hebrew-Speaking, But Jewishly IgnorantOnce again, on the eve of the opening of the 2003/04 school year, we are being shown that the Jewish education being received by Israeli children is extremely wanting. Educated Israeli contestants on the "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" quiz show have no difficulty in answering challenging trivia questions on various universal subjects, but even the greatest Israeli trivia champions fail the easies
Deja VuThe reality in our little country reminds me of a movie that was produced in 1993 (ironically, the same year of the Oslo accords): <i>Groundhog Day</i> (?Waking Up Yesterday? was the Hebrew title of the movie).
The Vision of the Undivided LandZeev Jabotinsky liked to recall for his listeners and readers the lesson of the Judgment of Solomon: If one says, "It is all mine," and the other says, "Half of it is mine," the one who says "Half of it is mine" has lost from the outset. It would appear today that so very many have forgotten this basic principle.
