Orthodox & Reform Rabbis Condemn Arab Violence against Settlers

Rabbi Lopatin said, “May Hashem give you all strength to continue this age old, noble struggle which God promises us will end in victory.”

Here it is: the shocking violation of human, civil, and national rights endured by Peggy Cidor, who will have to shell out at least $100 to repair the damage to her hallway. This is the last straw, the momentous event that brought together a coalition of rabbis from every known denomination. We demand Jutice! Photo credit: Yonatan Sindel/Flash90

Of course they said none of the above. Or, rather, I lifted their urgent and heartfelt statements from a press release sent out by Reform Rabbi (nebech) Pamela Frydman, International Co-Chair, Rabbis for Women of the Wall,  decrying the despicable acts of vandalism and graffiti desecration found by police at Peggy Cidor’s home in Jerusalem on the last morning of Hanukkah.

Yes, all of the above holy gevalts were a reaction to this lady’s hallway getting a big graffiti. Jewish babies are stoned and carjacked, Jews are stabbed in broad daylight, Arab terrorists are digging tunnels into Israel to kidnap Jewish soldiers, and a population of half a million Jews is being slated for deportation while these words are being written – and the only thing that brings these rabbis of all denominations together is the schmutz on Peggy Cidor’s hallway wall.

With friends like these…

  1. They must go…the sooner the better and safer for us all! Israel is a Jewish nation and not a polyglot patchwork quilt of 'competing' tribes with no legitimate claim for the land…and certainly no 'title' from G-d.

  2. Yonatan Uziel says:

    The sentiment is right but spare us the gobbledygook. What the heck do the Palestinians care if they “violate Jewish law” etc. This is such a turnaround for so many of these “Rabbis”, I wonder what they really want. No way they suddenly care about what happens to the “settlers”. I don’t buy it!

  3. Mark Weis says:

    Way to go Rabbi Asher Lopatin, my dear old friend.

  4. Mark Weis says:

    I keep thinking these dudes would probably be good pitchers with those strong rock-throwing arms. If only they knew the possibilities. Crazy bastards will most likely just get themselves killed anyway so what's the difference. They don't really value life all that much.

  5. Gideon Jones says:

    The Reform Rabbi (and it seems most) is attacking the spray paint used on the home of the WOW moron. Where does she speak out against violence towards “settlers”?

  6. Bigmouth Netanyahu worrying about Iran, he should worry more on what is going inside Israel, it is time that the IDF beginns to strike Judea and Samaria once and for all.

  7. THIS IS BARBARIC TO THE HIGHEST ORDER, ALL THE PERPETRATORS MUST BE BROUGHT TO BOOK

  8. Such class you display Gideon Jones, I'm sure your mother must be proud.
