Now is the Time for Change!
Tzvi FishmanBefore making Aliyah to Israel, Tzvi Fishman was a Hollywood screenwriter....
The lack of preparation and advertising weren't the only reasons why people didn't come. The fact is, a great many people have lost their faith in Moetzet Yesha. People remember that is was the fiasco, two-faced, Moetzet Yesha leadership during the Gush Katif campaign that led us into the outstretched hands of the policemen in black. People are fed up with demonstrations where Moetzet Yesha bureaurocrats and media-pleasing rabbis speak passionate words, then work in compliance with the evacuators to make their despicable work easier. People don't want more of the "Love Will Win Out" Moetzet Yesha campaigns. People want a leadership that holds up not only torches, but the banner of faith, and leaders who are willing to sit in jail for their convictions, and not just send 15 year-old boys and girls out to do the fighting against the forces of Darth Vader darkness that are seeking to usurp our Land.
Thirty youngsters arrested for living in a new yishuv -- community --- in Eretz Yisrael. The youngsters were living quietly in a new yishuv called Shevut Ami which was estabilshed during Succot, together with 4 other new communities. Suddenly, yesterday, police pounced upon them and attacked them very violently. WHY DIDN'T THEY HAVE CAMERAS WITH THEM!! The answer is that they did!! However the violent police, as usual, took away these cameras. So, currently, our young heroic kids are under arrest, and the brutal policemen who beat them are free.
Run to Ariel to join the protest! You will be happy to know that brave friends of these youngsters, upon hearing of the arrest, zoomed over to Shevut Ami and are maintaining the presence of the Jewish people at Shevut Ami ("Return of my people") as these lines are being written. These fabulous youngsters NEED every ounce of support they can get! Please RUN to Ariel. The police station is near the famous Ariel college (Michlelet Yehuda veShomron). Particulars -- Nadya Matar 0505500834, keep your call super-brief please.
