The Babylonian Talmud (Pesachim 49b) states that Jewish ignoramuses are greater anti-Semites than Gentiles. The Zohar (Exodus 7b) declares that at the "end of days" certain wicked Jews will become the allies of Israel's enemies.

Such Jews have become Israel's ruling elites. Although they comprise a small (ultra-secular) minority, they control the major levers of power in this country. And they do so while intoning the mantra of "democracy."

Lest I be accused of "extremism," let us recall some facts.

It was precisely such Jews that foisted the Oslo or Israel-PLO Agreement on Israel. The same kind of Jews enacted and implemented the policy of "unilateral disengagement" - a euphemism for treason. Lest I be accused of "extremism," let us recall some facts, beginning with Yossi Beilin, Shimon Peres's erstwhile "poodle."

Backed by Peres, once known as the nation's "saboteur," Beilin initiated secret negotiations (then illegal according to Israeli law) in 1992, which led to the Oslo or Israel-PLO Agreement of September 13, 1993.

Fast forward to December 1, 2003. Even though he was no longer a member of the Knesset, Beilin, together with such prominent Israeli officials as former Labor chairman Amram Mitzna and former Knesset speaker Avraham Burg, signed the Geneva Accord with Yasser Abed Rabbo, a member of the Palestine Liberation Organization'sExecutive Committee. (In the US, Beilin and his Labor colleagues would have been incarcerated for violating the Logan Act, which prohibits non-government officials from negotiating with foreign powers. They might even have been indicted for treason for violating Article III, Section 3 of the Constitution.)

The Geneva Accord is a non-governmental proposal ostensibly intended to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The Accord gives the "Palestinians" almost all of Judea, Samaria and Gaza, drawing Israel's borders close to what existed before the Six-Day War of June 1967. In return for removing most of the Israeli settlements in these areas and giving Palestinians control of the Old City of Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount, the Arabs would limit their so-called "right of return" to Israel to a number specified by Israel's government.

The present writer doesn't know when the Beilin-Mitzna-Burg-Rabbo negotiations were initiated. Perhaps it was before Israel's January 2003 election, since Labor leader Mitzna campaigned on a policy of "unilateral disengagement" from Gaza. Also, it may not have been a coincidence that it was in December, when the Geneva Accord was publicized, that Likud Prime Minister Ariel Sharon publicly adopted Labor's policy of "unilateral disengagement" as the centerpiece of his government.

Be this as it may, those surrendering Jewish land, or intending to surrender Jewish land, to Israel's enemies are prima facie guilty of committing acts defined as treason by Israel's Penal Law, specifically:

1. acts which "impair the sovereignty" of the State of Israel - section 97(a);
2. acts which "impair the integrity" of the State of Israel - section 97(b);
3. acts under section 99 that give assistance to an "enemy" at war against Israel, which the law specifically states includes a terrorist organization;
4. acts under section 100 that evince an intention or resolve to commit one of the acts prohibited by sections 97 and 99.

Eminent Israelis signed scholarly petitions to the Supreme Court challenging the legality of the government's withdrawal from Jewish land. The court nonetheless dismissed the petitions as involving "political," as opposed to "justiciable" issues. Strange, since Aharon Barak, then court president, had decreed even before Oslo that "everything is justiciable."

Unbeknownst to the public, that decree (or dictum) made the Supreme Court the supreme law-giver and virtual master of Israel. Indeed, that decree heralded not only a judicial coup d'état, but also the subtle judicial management of a one-sided civil war - a war waged by the Left against Jews who want to preserve Israel as a Jewish commonwealth and the Land of Israel as the eternal birthright of the Jewish people.

This war became rather obvious when the Sharon government, sanctified by Barak's ruling that Gaza (as well as Judea and Samaria) is "belligerent occupied territory," expelled 8,000 Jews from Gush Katif and turned over this Jewish land to Israel's implacable enemies.

At stake in this civil war is nothing less than the soul or identity of the Jewish people. This war, to reiterate, is being waged by Jewish anti-Semites against Jews who more or less

identify with the Jewish heritage. Refer again to the passages of the Talmud and Zohar cited at the outset of this article. What complicates this civil war is that these Jewish anti-Semites, having control of Israel's government and the national treasury, have enticed unwary and half-hearted Jews - religious and non-religious - to collaborate with them in the war against Judaism.

Unknown to the world, the war now going on between Jews and Jews in Israel is the basic reason why Israel's Government did not, and has not, declared war against the Palestinian Authority, whether led by Fatah or Hamas. Moreover, and also unknown to the world, it is precisely this war between Jews and Jews that has made Israel subservient to Washington.

Indeed, if the Jews of this country were united and armed with the wisdom and power of the Torah, they could be, and would be, invincible, as well as the greatest blessing to mankind.
