JUSTICE AT LAST

Court’s Ruling for Hebron Jews Mends Barak’s Violations of their Rights, Honoring Israel’s Moral Obligation

Four years in court, tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars in attorney's fees, more hours than can be counted invested.

Israeli security forces on December 4, 2008 forcibly evicted some 250 Jews from Beit HaShalom in Hebron. Now the court ruled in favor of the residents who've been kept out for four years.

Following the illegitimate expulsion from our homes in Beit HaShalom, the state of Israel, under Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, has a legal responsibility to return this property to its lawful owners, immediately, ensuring that Barak not torpedo this move.

But on a higher level, this decent and rightful move would state, loud and clear, not only in words, but with action, that we will continue to live in our land, all our land, be it in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem or Hebron. This is our land, always has been, always will be.

This is Israel’s moral obligation to our people, our history, our land.

    There is no reliable source that indicates that any “Preparing For A Post Israel Middle East” government report exists. The only source is an article in Foreign Policy Journal:

    http://www.foreignpolicyjournal.com/2012/08/28/us-preparing-for-a-post-israel-middle-east/

    And as this newspaper pointed out, the author is a notorious Israel-hater with little credibility:

    http://www.jewishpress.com/news/hezbollah-supporter-franklin-lamb-urging-the-us-to-forge-israel-free-mid-east/2012/09/04/

    The *Jewish Press* should not be publishing articles that make claims that it itself has debunked!

  2. Yori Yanover says:

    We permit our writers some leeway in these cases. The point of the author's reference was not the WH paper per se, but the notion of the article's conclusion being juxtaposed with the settlement of Hebron.

    BTW, Charlie, when are you going to write something for us? Perhaps along the lines of "Leftist in a den of right-wingers — my adventures on the comments pages of the Jewish Press" ?

    Thanks, Yori! I'll consider it next year ;).

    L'shanah tovah!

Hebron Tent City on Shabbat Chaye Sarah

Toward early mid-afternoon the tents start popping up on the lawn in the park across from the Cave of Machpela.

The present Jewish community of Hebron tries to continue walking in the footsteps of our illustrious Forefathers, learning from their deeds, and acting accordingly. Therefore, when Rabbi Shalom Alkobi, then director of the Machpela authority, realized he had an opportunity to seek a blessing from one of our generation’s most righteous people, he did so, without thinking twice.

Last year Minister Saar initiated a new program whereby Israeli schoolchildren would visit Hebron and Ma’arat HaMachpela, the roots of the Jewish people. Since the inception of this program, hundreds of children have visited Hebron.

When the storm-troopers crashed the party early Wednesday afternoon, very few people were home. Most were at their “other homes,” getting ready for Passover.

But not quite.
