How surrealistic is our reality here in Israel? No I am not referring to the Elections- although that inself is worth reflection and deliberation. I am referring to the daily reality of Jews being attacked in our Homeland – the neccessity of guarding our children, and yes also adults against attacks from terrorists by rocks, car terror attacks, fire bombs, missiles, bullets, mortars – and many or even most of this from Arabs who are living next door to us.

It is so easy to place the burden of blame on Israel and the “frustration” of the Arabs who have no State- no State- how about 24 Arabs States most of which are busy attacking and murdering their own people instead of worrying about the important responsibilities of having a country ; i.e.- education, welfare, human rights- but this is not on their agenda and the accusatory finger is against the “occupation”.


How tragic it is that the world continues to ignore the reality and the truth of the situation. How tragic for the Arab people who were allowed to live with us here inside of Israel, find jobs, education, equal rights even inside of the government and instead of utilizing this for the good of the people, their so-called leaders are only busy trying to destroy Israel and the Jewish people.

The continued incitement to murder Jews and the false accusations that we, the Jewish people wish to or are destroying or contaminating the Holiest Site for us, the Jewish people- the Temple Mount, and Jerusalem – is obscene and insane but accepted by the world as the truth because it is a way for justifying attacking Israel.

The UN and especially the UNWRA are especially guilty of acts against humanity regarding Israel. The use of UNWRA facilties both inside of Israel and in Arab regions such as Gaza to harbor terror cells and missiles, to incite, to call murdering terrorists “heroes”, to continue to falisfy records of so-called refugees from 1948 and ignore the truth is one of the most despicable lies that the world quietly accepts.

What about the “modern refugees” from places like Syrai, Iraq- etc? They are unimportant because it is really difficult even for the UN or UNWRA to accuse Israel of their suffering, their murders rapes etc. All of this of course while the continued humanitary life-saving aid of Israel to injured Syrian or Gazan Arabs goes on day after day, including even terrorists from inside or outside of Israel. At our expense of course!

The determination of the US and other Nations to push Israel into yet another “Peace (piece) Agreement ” calling for 2 States for 2 Nations is the willful choice of ignoring the realities of the situation that even before the historic establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, and certainly before the 1967 Six Day War, Jews were attacked and murdered inside of the Land of Israel- what was the excuse then??? Oh- I forget- our existance justified murdering us in the eyes of the world and even following the Holocaust and the methodical persecution and murder of 6 Million Jews while the entire world locked their doors for any of our families to escape – and the British fought Jewish immigration to the one sanctuary that the persecuted endangered Jews could be saved – the Land of Israel.

This is our eternal Homeland, and no matter what pressures – threats or dangers we face we must gather up our determination, our eternal belief in the L-rd of Israel, and fight in every possible way that we can to protect the one Homeland that we, the Jewish people have – Israel. And now back to the elections that we face yet again, I pray daily for HaShem to grant us true leadership that protects HIS NAME, our Torah our Land and people and that we are deserving to serve as HIS messengers to do the same.
