You Know You’re Israeli if you spend the last evening before government forces remove you from your legally purchased land by decree of an autistic high court… playing soccer.
These young residents of Migron spent their last Saturday at home kicking the ball around. The High Court of Justice (what a humorous title that is, in light of this decision), on Wednesday evening, August 29, 2012, ordered all 50 families in the Judea and Samaria village of Migron to evacuate their homes no later than Tuesday Sep 4.
In a universe in which Justice reigns, these judges should find themselves on the streets of their affluent Jerusalem and Tel Aviv neighborhoods, homeless. I don’t see any other tikkun to their souls for their brazen act of yet again evacuating hundreds of Jews from their homes in their Jewish homeland.
The injustice of it cries to the heavens, and on occasion Heaven cries back.
I’m looking forward to seeing the entire lineup of Supreme Court justices pushing their shopping carts with all their earthly belongings on the streets of the Jewish state.
I could throw in the Attorney general and his industrious staff, but I’m not sure they deserve shopping carts.
So, you also know you’re Israeli if you don’t forget these crimes against human decency and against the Jewish nation, perpetrated by the high court.
Don’t forget, don’t forgive, and don’t vote for Netanyahu, who’s been enabling these crimes.
Fine, he, too, can have a shopping cart.
