In a recent account of his first Knesset term, Dov Lipman writes that “Yesh Atid Education Minister Rabbi Shai Piron is hard at work making major changes to improve the education system.” I wonder what values he brings to that project since Piron and other Yesh Atid cabinet members gave key votes to free 104 terrorists .
Looking at Yesh Atid’s statement of beliefs , one finds several sections that need to be revised and clarified given its role as a liberator of murderous Jew haters. Below are some examples with proposed revisions in italics:
“We believe that every person in Israel must have their fundamental rights met…”
Not applicable to terror victims and their families’ fundamental right to justice.
“We believe it is the duty of the state to care for the health of its citizens.”
Not applicable to health damage inflicted upon bereaved families by freeing their relatives’ murderers—depression, loss of sleep , etc.
“We believe in a unified society and the principle which says ‘all Jews are responsible for one another.’ ”
Not applicable to terror victims and their families.
“We believe that it is the state’s responsibility to ensure the safety of its citizens.”
Not applicable to incentivizing terrorism by freeing murderers.
“We believe that it is the duty of the state to care for all its seniors to enable them to live with dignity and enjoy their retirement years without worry or distress. These words are particularly focused on Holocaust survivors who live among us.”
Not applicable to the dignity of murdered Holocaust survivors and their families.
