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

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014

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.

Feiglin Arrested for Praying

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

Moshe Feiglin, head of the Manhigut Yehudit faction within the Likud party ascended up to the Temple Mount (Har Habyit) on Tuesday, as he does every month, and was arrested by the Israeli police along with Hagai Weiss for the crime of praying on the Temple Mount.

Feiglin had gone up to the Temple Mount with 30 other people. Halfway through his usual walk around the site, the police claim they saw him praying and escorted him off the mountain.

Feiglin denied he was praying at the time.

Police questioned Feiglin for 5 hours, and then upgraded his status to “arrest”. The charge was, “Actions that could have led to the endangerment of the public.”

Police demanded that Feiglin sign a guarantee that he would not visit the Temple Mount for the next 15 days, but he refused to sign it.

Feiglin told the police, “I am a free citizen, and I will not willingly suspend my liberty.”

The police brought a request to the court to extend Feiglin’s remand in jail for a few days to “investigate” the matter, but the court refused to grant it, and the police were subsequently forced to release Feiglin unconditionally.

The Israeli Police do not allow Jews to pray on the Temple Mount because the Waqf forbids it, and threaten mass violence if they catch a Jew praying.
