Who Is The Enemy?

Once again, they try to brainwash the entire country into thinking that their brothers are the worst enemy of all and that the enemy is the enemy only because of their brothers.
MK Moshe-Feiglin

Our grandchildren were over for Shabbat, and when Shabbat ended, I didn’t run to turn on my cell phone. We played with the little ones a bit more, took our time with Havdalah and by the time I turned on my phone, I was flooded with messages. There was a big demonstration in Afula over last week’s murder of 20 year-old Shelly Dadon, may God avenge her blood. There had also been an attempted kidnapping of a pregnant woman in Afula. Via the messages, I was requested to participate in the rally.

I quickly got in the car and drove toward Afula when the phone rang again. “The police ordered us to end the protest and the thousands are heading home,” I was told apologetically. I turned the car to head back home. I will write my thoughts here, as I did not express them at the rally.

What exactly were you thinking when you set free close to 100 murderers in exchange for the privilege of speaking with the Palestinian leaders – murderers as well?

What did you think would come of that? A year ago, when I voted against the annual budget because of the government’s intent to free murderers, I warned that this would be the result. The writing was on the wall, written with the blood of all those already murdered after previous terrorist releases. So what were you thinking?

I am not saying that the murderers of Shelly Dadon are necessarily terrorists who were recently released. My claim is much broader and much deeper. When you release the murderers of Jews, the message that you are broadcasting to all of Israel’s enemies – loud and clear – is that Jewish blood is cheap. The Jews themselves don’t think that the release of the murderers of their own brothers is an unforgivable desecration of the sanctity of their lives. The Jews themselves relate to the murders as some sort of unavoidable natural phenomenon.

“The sun shone, the system flourished and the slaughterer slaughtered,” wrote Bialik after the pogrom in Kishinev. It’s as if we have learned nothing in the many years that have passed since then – as if there had been no Holocaust, no state, no Yad Vashem, and no hollow “Never Again.” But this time the murders take place on the watches of the IDF, Israel’s police, the state, the Knesset and a military budget of endless billions. Once again the sun shines and young Jewish women are slaughtered. And the Jews are infuriated and will to do everything to stop the terrible phenomenon, the graffiti called “price tag.”

The news story on the murder of Shelly Dadon was third on the Channel 2 broadcast that evening. The headlines were the “hate crimes” of the settlers. The flaccid internal security minister appears time after time in public demanding emergency laws to put an end to the graffiti revving up the engines of the settlers’ hatred. The limp defense minister speaks at the Memorial Day ceremony enlisting the memories of the fallen soldiers for the war against graffiti, of course! What are the Iranian nuclear missiles as opposed to the real threat: graffiti?

The media is harnessed to the locomotive of hatred – as if Jewish cemeteries and IDF memorials are not desecrated in Israel on an almost daily basis. As if synagogues in Lod and Ramle are not burned down – with nobody saying a word. As if over 50 percent of those murdered on our roads die in bad accidents perpetrated by a very specific group of drivers. And Shelly Dadon is not the first incident. Not even the second or third.

As Peres retires, Israel fights sour legacy: Insistence on setting policy in line with hopes, rather than with reality.

Our capital was not arbitrarily chosen, as capitals of some other nations were.

UNHRC High Commissioner Navi Pillay accuses the IDF of possible war crimes in Gaza again, cutting slack to Hamas.

There is much I can write you about what is going here, but I am wondering what I should not write. I will start by imagining that I am you, sitting at home in the Los Angeles area and flipping back and forth between the weather, traffic reports, the Ukraine, Mexican illegals and Gaza. No […]

Should Jews in Europe take more responsibility in self-defense of community and property?

It is time for a total military siege on Gaza; Nothing should enter the Gaza Strip.

Germany’s The Jewish Faith newspaper ominously noted, “We Jews are in for a war after the war.”

The truth is we seldom explore with kids what prayer is supposed to be about.

Almost as one, Jews around the world are acknowledging the day-to-day peril facing ordinary Jews in Israel and the extraordinary service of the IDF in protecting them.

So on the one hand Secretary Kerry makes no bones about who is at fault for the current hostilities: he clearly blames Hamas.

King Solomon said it long ago: “Cast your bread upon the waters” because you don’t know when you’ll hit something. Our job is to do.

The anti-Israel camp does not need to win America fully to its side. Merely to neutralize it would radically alter the balance of power and put Israel in great jeopardy.

Immediately end the occupation and declare Israeli sovereignty over the entire Jewish Homeland.

For a rare moment – too rare – you taught us the true meaning of oneness.
Oneness at the front and oneness at home.

This is Stalin at his best, now implemented by Israel’s Ministry of Internal Security.

The right to defend oneself is a basic human right. But in Israel, it is not G-d Who gives him this basic human right to defend himself, but the State. And the State really does not want its citizens to bear arms.
