Enemies From Within

      When things get bad, I must remember that thousands of people in Israel are doing wonderful mitzvot daily, and we cannot become discouraged. Like many American Israelis, I find it hard to fathom the blockheadedness of our current Israeli leaders.


 

      Haaretz newspaper editor David Landau recently was reported to have told Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice that Israel “wants to be raped by the U.S.” Imagine, a fellow Jew urges the U.S. to “rape” Israel! Our worst nightmare is when our own people invite a friend to become an enemy. Will we ever learn?

 

      I wondered about this editor’s education until reading another “wonderful” piece of news, this one from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. I guess this is why so many I consider to be Jew-haters support Hebrew U. You might not believe the following report. I simply thought this was Arab propaganda until the Israeli press confirmed it.

 

      The Hebrew University Teacher’s Committee granted an award to a doctoral student who produced the following research paper: The paper, by doctoral student Tal Nitzan, reportedly concluded that Israeli prejudice against Arabs is so pervasive that, believe it or not, Israeli soldiers do not rape Arab women captives. The doctoral student was amazed at this “unnatural behavior of Israeli soldiers.” How can it be, he must have asked himself, that Israeli soldiers do not behave as crudely as soldiers around the world?

 

      After a great deal of research, he “discovered” the reason; Israeli soldiers are prejudiced. They are making a right wing political statement against Arabs when they refuse to rape Arab women. Now we know! It is not Jewish values or purity of arms; it is prejudice. Arab soldiers are not prejudiced, for they will rape any captive. It is the Jews who are prejudiced. The right-wing Zionists are to blame – as usual.

 

      If this paper had been ignored or ridiculed by the university, I might understand. But no, the teacher’s committee awarded it a prize! Now we see why we must all support this “wonderful” university.

 

      Thus is it any surprise that our political leaders are willing to set an Arab mass murderer of Jews free? We recently learned that the dream of the Israeli Left might soon become a reality. Prime Minister Olmert not only seems willing to negotiate away the eastern part of Jerusalem, but also reportedly plans to free arch-terrorist Marwan Barghouti – allowing him to lead the Palestinians to “peace.” Shimon Peres stated even before he was elected president that, if elected, he would be happy to pardon Barghouti because he is a popular, “moderate” Arab leader.

 

      In reality, Barghouti is responsible for the mass murder of Jews, and started the second intifada. I guess that makes him a moderate, if the word moderate means murderer in Arabic. What does it say about the Palestinians, when one of their most popular leaders is a murderer of men, women and children?

 

      If further proof of Barghouti’s hatred of Jews is needed, the French town of Pierrefitte (north of Paris) made him an honorary citizen. Many Europeans also expressed their sympathy with his plight. From others I expect anti-Israel behavior, but don’t want it from fellow Jews.

 

      We need Moshiach now!

The Drama Mamas are not an ordinary theater troupe. “When we audition actresses,” says Elisheva, who also serves as the show’s director, “we like to explain to them that the main qualification is that you can honestly say, I have never been on a stage before, but I have always wanted to be an actress!”

It really is time for painful sacrifices for peace. No one wants his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren to suffer the pangs of war and strife. It is time to end the strife and make peace in the Middle East.

Israel is a country that understands security concerns. Many civil rights have been sacrificed in the name of security and Israelis are used to being checked every time they enter a shopping center, a large store or any public building. Americans recently learned that they, too, are subject to many checks on their most private activities.

The Israeli Parliament is usually controlled by a coalition of different political parties because no one party receives enough votes to have a majority. Unlike in the U.S., where there are two major political parties and one of the two political parties commands a majority of the seats in the Senate and/or in the House, in Israel the government is composed of many, many small political parties, each pushing its own agenda.
