Chabad-Lubavitch “shluchim” (emissaries) have issued a statement at their 34th national conference in Israel that “negotiating with Israel’s enemies of Israel concerning Israeli borders in itself constitutes an ominous danger to the lives of Israel’s residents, men, women and children.”

Following is the complete statement:

By the Grace of G-d

Statement By The Shluchim To Eretz Israel Issued At 34 National Shluchim Conference In Israel

Motzei Shabbos Parshas Ekev 5773uulcWe, the personal emissaries of the Lubavitcher Rebbe to the Holy Land – including Rabbis of cities and neighborhoods in Israel, heads of Yeshivot and Kollelim and social welfare institutions, who were sent to Israel by the Rebbe himself over 35 years ago in order “to arouse and encourage Jews to observe Torah and Mitzvot and help build the Jewish land physically and spiritually” – from the depths of a pained heart protest against the Israeli government’s decision to resume negotiations with Palestinian murderers on withdrawal from territories of the Holy Land, G-d forbid.

Negotiating with Israel’s enemies of Israel concerning Israeli borders in itself constitutes an ominous danger to the lives of Israel’s residents, men, women and children. This ruling is explicit in the Jewish Code of Law, section 329:6: “Even if they are only demanding hay or straw, we take up arms and violate the Shabbat.” Hundreds of prominent rabbis in Israel have ruled that withdrawal from territories is a matter of life or death for tens of thousands of people

Anyone who can put two and two together can see that every time Israel has agreed to concede and withdraw, this has made matters worse. It has only accelerated terror and bloodshed, G-d forbid.

We support the tireless efforts of the Rabbinical Congress for Peace (the Pikuach Nefesh Committee) which for the past 20 years has been vigorously combating the policies of withdrawal and concessions by Israeli governments. The Committee has repeatedly publicized worldwide the definitive ruling in the Shulchan Aruch that such concessions are a matter of life or death.

Many Jews, and not only Chassidim, reverently recall the numerous public addresses in which the Rebbe expressed his pained concern for the well-being of the Jewish nation in Eretz Israel.

We now call upon every individual, in Israel and the world over, to support and assist the above Committee in every way possible. Their vital mission is to save the lives of the Jewish people in Israel – to forestall any territorial negotiations with Israel’s enemies over its borders, by bringing the public and the decision-makers to the realization that the only way to achieve peace and security in the Holy Land is by standing firm by the integrity of the Holy Land. Only thus will we see the fulfillment of the Biblical promise that “I will grant peace in the land…and lead you upright.”

We pray that Almighty G-d have mercy and put an end to our suffering. May we merit the Final Redemption by the righteous Moshiach – now

    Giving up land that was fought for and died for by heros of Israel is a real tragedy for this Israeli Government. If they really want to turn off their last remnant of Disapora Judaism, they are doing a great job. Bibi Netanyahu is acting like he is the husband of the Whore of Babylon. Doesn;t this man know anything about Jewish or Israeli history?

  2. B"H the Shluchim have issued an unambiguous and clear statement that every G-d fearing Jewish person should hear and understand. No compromising on the security of life. Not for political or goodwill reasons. As there is NO LOGIC in releasing killers and murderers who will most assuredly resume their nefarious attacks against innocent lives.

    Simple, the Palestinians will no longer have to be our enemies.

  4. All the Palestinians need to go back to Jordan when they came from. They were Bedouins who squatted on Israel's Land and now they think they own it. They are Islamic Arabs they need to go back where they came from and build their own independent state. They have no currency, most of them have no jobs, Israel funds their children's education, they are given free medical care, Israel pays their electric bill for how many years now…. and they think they are independent enough to have their own State. Are these people insane or what? Ha'Shem holds the DEED to Israeli Land and no man or nation is going to rip that deed out of the Hands of the Most High G-d. HE told HIS people…. do not sell MY Land, do not divide up Jerusalem. Those who divide up HIS Land will suffer HIS WRATH! Any man or nation that comes against Israel, comes agains the G-d of Israel and no man or nation stands against HIM… HE wins…. they loose…. that simple! L'Shalom

  5. I couldn't agree more. They have it exactly right. Maybe Netanyahu should get his head out of his ass and start listening to what Chabad is saying.

  7. Experts on running synagogues in outlying areas; all the power to them.
    But their expertise on matters of national defense and the future of the Jewish state is no greater than any other citizen voting in Israel.

    And as the spiritual leader of a suburban Ct congregation, your daily risks are not getting a minyan, while kids in Israel are drafted at 18

  8. David Hirschfield says:

    Charles Hoffman. Israel belongs to all Jews worldwide. We have the obligation to our great great grandparents and great great grandchildren not to give away more of Israel to false claims. Jews live in "outlying areas' because we were dispersed through the world by hate and emnity. They have as much right as any to comment on issues affecting Israel.
