Hundreds of Rabbis Support Ya’alon’s ‘Fed Up with Kerry’ Comments

The Rabbinical Congress for Peace (RCP), comprising over 350 prominent Israeli rabbis, has sent a letter of support and encouragement to Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon for his clear and fearless remarks that “enough is enough.”

The rabbis assured him that the Torah supports those who “stand firm, speak the truth, and thereby lead to a true peace in Israel.”

“At long last there is a cabinet minister who demonstrated what true Jewish leadership is – a man who had the courage to advocate the truth that is stated  in the Code of Jewish Law (Orach Chaim, Section 329), that any withdrawal from Jewish territory leads to bloodshed,” the RCP stated. “As Minister Ya’alon put it, ‘Only our continued presence in Judea and Samaria and the Jordan Valley will ensure that Ben-Gurion Airport and Netanya don’t become targets for rockets from every direction.’”

“This simple truth has been proved over and over again is recent decades. Any concession or withdrawal has led to bloodshed and instability and has made daily life miserable.

One of the rabbis said that the fault does not lie with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry but rather with the Israel government,

“He took his cue from Israel’s continued weak-minded mottos, such as ‘Israel is prepared for painful concessions,’ and ‘Israel supports a two-state solution,’” said Rabbi Avrohom Shmuel Lewin, Executive Director of the RCP.

“If instead we already convinced him that he can gain from Israel’s continued painful concessions and withdrawals, why shouldn’t he continue to pressure Israel for even more concessions?” asked Rabbi Lewin.

    The land that was stolen from the Jewish people for 2,000 years is returned to them by the Holy One of Israel, by Jewish sweat and blood. Not one inch should be given to those thieves!…..lets work at building the Third Temple with focus and unity speedily in our days. Amen.

  5. Cathy Sherman says:

    Wow, what a concept – telling the truth is praised by rabbis. Sure, we all know politics is corrupt and an honest politician is an oxymoron, but maybe in Israel we can encourage our leaders to tell the truth and be that light to the world we're supposed to be! I do appreciate Yaalon's honesty and also the support from the rabbis. Also, in politics it used to be a given that one needs a thick skin. Guess the current US leaders weren't told that. Isn't it amazing that telling the truth is now so rare one has to apologize for it?

    "the truth that is stated in the Code of Jewish Law (Orach Chaim, Section 329), that any withdrawal from Jewish territory leads to bloodshed,"

    I looked up Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 329. It is about the importance of desecrating Shabat in order to save a life. It doesn't say anything like what is quoted here.

  7. To Charlie Hall: I advise you to visit our website pikuachnefesh.net and there you will see that this Rulin in Shulchan Oruch 329 is precisely a case and even worse than the case mentioned in that Halacha.

  8. Lets’ look at what happened to the US and Israel after they gave away Gaza. Right off, the terrorists started using their new territory as a closer launching pad for rockets against Israel, The US city of New Orleans was destroyed by a level 5 Hurricane and Sharon went into a comma. I’d say that trying to give away the land of God is a sin and a VERY dangerous occupation. I can’t say that these were punishments from God, but I honestly have to wonder about it. This peace plan seeks to give up more of God’s land and that is a clear sin against God. God has not changed; He is the same as he has always been. From the day that he gave this land to Abraham until now, He is the same. In recent decades there have been many attacks followed by a time of settling and then renewed trouble and more attacks. Today we see this same scenario but with greater weapons involved and with less time settling in between attacks with more and more troubles mounting. There are even terroristic attacks within the settling periods. We see the Muslim nations getting closer to Moscow as time goes. This looks to be setting up the national alignment of the attack made in EZ 38 that takes place in the middle of the tribulation period. I believe that the rapture/departure of the Christian church is to take place very soon and that an evil peace deal will be made for 7/360 day years, between Israel, the Arabs and a person who will head the one world government. That man will be the anti-Christ. I wrote a book in 2012 that discusses some of the prophecies written about in the Bible. It’s a short read of 6 or 7 pages and it’s totally free. I hope you will have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next

    YIsrael as good reason to not trust Kerry "
    the Rabbis are correct !

  10. Eric says:

    Kerry is trying but Obama is the source. Obama is an epic foreign policy failure that will be remembered for decades to come. The US is using the $$$ asnd military knowledge or EU antisemites ( hungary, sweden, greece) as a threat. Boogie stand up for the jewish people and tell obama and co to go kiss ayatollah’s feet and shake assad’s hand. This guy would have negotiated with hitler.!
