Where Are The Guards, Mr. Sharon?


News item: Prime Minister Sharon said he’d hired private guards to protect the grave of his wife, Lilly, because of desecration threats. Dear Mr. Sharon:

Hearing the above news made me ill. There is no other word to describe the revulsion I felt in hearing what I take to be yet another one of your lies. You are resorting to the foulest dissemination of disinformation, and your fabrications ought to be nominated for a Pulitzer in the category of fiction.

In your rush to de-legitimize your former constituents and supporters, you know no bounds. In your onslaught against all that Judaism stands for, you do set yourself no limit. The smell of power has entered your nostrils, and the intoxicating fragrance of dictatorial powers has so befuddled your senses, that truth and falsehood have become one.

In other words, Mr. Sharon, I have no reason not to believe that you are a liar.

There are no threats against Lilly’s grave. Judaism has set an air of reverence over the eternal resting place of any Jew. No Jew whose heart is permeated with Torah values and teachings would ever so much as entertain the ugly thought of desecrating a grave.

No, Mr. Sharon, no. The alleged fear of desecration is nothing more than another attempt on your part to besmirch those who oppose your plan to expel Jews from their homes. It is but another attempt to tar and feather those whose legitimate opposition to your one-man rule has become a thorn in your side.

In order to legally arrest, jail and expel political opponents, one needs a reason. If a reason is not readily available, fabrication is the best tool to employ. But one cannot go on fabricating forever, Mr. Sharon.

Yes, there are threats of desecration against graves. There is a very real – indeed a burning – fear that graves of loved ones will be abused, defiled and vandalized. Those fears, in fact, have time and again been shown to be justified. And those fears, Mr. Sharon, are about to be realized in the desecration and defilement you are about to allow against those who died and were buried in the cities and towns you are about to hand over to implacable enemies of the Jewish people.

Where are the guards, Mr. Sharon?

Thousands of Jewish graves on the Mount of Olives have been defiled and desecrated by those with whom you shook hands. Go out, Mr. Sharon, go and take a good look at the thousands of gravestones that have been destroyed and defiled. Go, Mr. Prime Minister, go to Joseph’s tomb (yes, the one abandoned in Nablus) and see what your newfound friends have done.

Where were the guards, Mr. Sharon?

Hundreds of ancient graves in Ashdod, Tzefat, and most recently Acco are excavated – and the bones of long-dead Jews are allowed to roll in the dirt of archeological diggings. Graves, Mr. Sharon. Graves are being desecrated on a daily basis with your permission. And when protesters decry the heartless ransacking and defilement, your guards, Mr. Sharon, do come. They come not to guard the graves from being desecrated but to guard and protect those who have taken the desecration of Jewish graves to a new height of callousness.

Where are the guards, Mr. Prime Minister? Where are the guards you should have sent to protect the remnants of our ancient Temple on the Mount?

Where were the guards needed to stop the truckloads of ancient artifacts dug out by the Muslims (they are still doing it!) from underneath the Temple Mount and dumped as so much garbage?

Strategy? For the longest time Obama couldn’t be bothered to have one against a sworn enemy.

Ms. Foreign Minister, do some reading that won’t cure your insomnia over buildings going up in Israel but may broaden your horizons.

The thug knew exactly what you are and he went after you anyway, Mr. Anteby.

Last month United Torah Jewry MKs heckled a speech by Prime Minister Netanyahu and then walked out of the room. As the prime minister read out the names of the ministers in his new government, UTJ MK Yisrael Eichler shouted, “Jews don’t ban Jews” from the Knesset. (The reference was to demands by the Yesh Atid Party that haredi parties be excluded from Netanyahu’s new coalition.)

In a recent speech, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak suggested that Israel consider unilaterally disengaging from Judea and Samaria.

“If it is impossible to reach an agreement with the Palestinians,” he said, “we should consider an interim arrangement, or even a unilateral disengagement.”

There are so many events about which one ought to write. So much is happening on a daily and even an hourly basis. Slaughter in Norway, unrelenting turmoil in the Middle East, floods, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, revolutions and the threat of a nuclear apocalypse emanating from the maniacal regime in Iran.

While in Israel week before last, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates spoke out of two sides of his mouth. (No real surprise there. The Obama administration has become famous for such indecisive doubletalk.)
