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.

I think Seth Lipsky is amazing, but it just drives home the point that newspapers have a lot of moving parts.

While conceding that not all criticism of Israel stemmed from anti-Semitism, Podhoretz contended that those most likely to subject Israel to relentless and one-sided hectoring could be found with increasing frequency in one particular grouping – that of the political left, with the level of animosity rising exponentially the farther left one moved along the spectrum.

Myth #1: It is easy to be a B’nai Noach. It is extraordinarily hard to be a B’nai Noach.

The question of anti-Semitism in Europe today is truly tied to the issue of immigration.

Polls indicate that the Palestinians are much more against a two state solution than the Israelis.

Turkey and Iran the 2 regional powers surrounding the ISIS conflict gain from a partial ISIS victory

Emigration from Israel is at an all-time low, far lower than immigration to Israel from Europe.

Leon Klinghoffer’s daughters: “‘Klinghoffer’ is justified as ‘a work of art’…This is an outrage.”

Do you seriously think that as you kidnap our children we should medically treat and help yours?

Sometimes collective action against the heinous acts of the majority is not enough. The world should not only support the blockade of Gaza; it must enforce the dismantling of Hamas.

The Arab Spring has challenged Jordan with the task of gradual reform with regard to its monarchy.

Israel offered Syria the entire Golan Heights, only to find that the Syrians were demanding MORE!

Israeli hasbara too can be described at best as pathetic, at worst non existent.

If Hamas is ISIS, the world asks, why didn’t Israel destroy it given justification and opportunity?

MK Moshe-Feiglin

What is the solution? We must declare, and believe, that the Land of Israel is truly ours and once again build in Judea and Samaria.

During the First Lebanon War, the IDF forced the PLO terrorists all the way to the Beirut port and then to Tunisia. The PLO, which had lost its stronghold in Lebanon, was shattered. Salach Taamri, the most senior and admired terrorist captured by the IDF, was imprisoned in the Ansar detention camp. He was a broken man.

Soldiers at various hospitals complained that they experienced hostility from Arab hospital staff.

A murderous uprising is taking place in Israel; On the roads, In the mixed Jewish-Arab cities.

We did not win the war in Gaza because we are still captive to the concept of the 2 state solution.

Trapped in a false notion of power, America will lose the battle in the same way Israel now loses.

Israel is our land, not theirs – Gaza included. No talk of the 2state solution; 1 state for 1 people
