Jerusalem, Washington, And The Iranian Question


Keeping-Jerusalem

The same reasoning can explain Netanyahu’s weak-kneed response to this week’s destruction of Migron, just a 15-minute drive from northern Jerusalem. Netanyahu no doubt would rather not risk world wrath, or the wrath of Ehud Barak, at a time like this. In Migron’s case, it may turn out to the nationalist camp’s benefit, even without factoring in Iran: The dismantling of Migron has already led to the construction of two new Jewish neighborhoods in southern Samaria: one in Adam, just a few minutes away from N’vei Yaakov in Jerusalem, and one named Givat HaYekev, just a few kilometers further. In addition, Migron itself is likely to once again become a thriving Jewish town itself after the documentation of Jewish purchase of properties there is reviewed and approved.

We are writing about bombing Iran as if it were an academic issue – but it may very soon prove to be quite genuine and concrete. Let us pray that the world is rid of the Amadinajad threat and that Israel is once again saved from its enemies.

Repentance, prayer and charity nullify the harsh decree, especially now. To ensure the safety and integrity of our holy city Yerushalayim, be sure to visit, organize lectures, raise funds, write letters to the editor or for a synagogue bulletin board – and participate in our bus tours in news-making areas of Jerusalem.

    Chaim- the price we will pay for being nice(the high moral ground) is high. "Nice guys come in last on the physical plane. Never again" or over again both have us up against the wall. Certitude of our creator's help is also questionable; -look what he did for us in the shoah? Then,, for us to go up against world opinion both before and after nuking iran also breaks no new path….my vote for is for the big stick.Know your enemy, there have been a thousand battles but we have not had, but need a thousand more victoriesI voye for the big stick.The 12th imam will regret ever leaving his well in indonesia..

  2. If you cannot count on U.S. support before Iran has a bomb, how will you ever trust the U.S. if they do? This is highly reminicent of the book "The Samson Option." The U.S. may want Israel to come out on top, but not without bleeding first. They are too quick to offer land that is not theirs for peace. I seriously doubt that Obama has your back. You will have to rely on Jehovah to preserve and protect you, only the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob can be trusted to keep His promise to you. I believe in Israel, and in the promise of God concerning Israel. You were chosen among the nations, and only your God is God.

  3. AMEN, ONLY THE G_D of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob & CHRIST JESUS is the ONE True G_D.
