Why were the Jerusalem Pride Parade Stabbings Allowed to Take Place?

ערב שבת קודש פר׳ ואתחנן/ט״וֹ באב תשע״ה

Let me be perfectly clear.

I am against the holding of the LGBTQ pride parade.

However, I am also against yesterday's stabbing attacks, leaving six wounded, including one still in critical condition, the last time I checked.

The following is a clear and concise report from CNN.


Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Yishai Shlissel was convicted of stabbing three people in the 2005 Jerusalem pride parade, and was sentenced to 12 years in prison. He was released only three weeks ago, for "good behavior."

Yet, Shlissel has also made his feelings quite clear.
In a letter written two weeks before Friday's attack, Shlissel's intentions clearly remained murderous despite his years in prison. "It is incumbent upon every Jew to risk beatings and imprisonment... to come together to stop and reverse the blasphemy in the name of the almighty, may he be blessed," wrote Shlissel. (YNET)
So, why then was Shlissel not given a restraining order, or even house arrest during the parade and all of pride week, as a condition of his release?

Why wasn't Shlissel's photograph distributed to each and every police officer on duty during the parade?

You can call me a conspiracy theorist, if you like. But, first, tell me how all of the above adds up?

It just doesn't.
Interior security minister Gilad Erdan responded by appointing a special investigation team to examine the circumstances of the stabbing and the reasons why security forces were unable to prevent the attack. (YNET)

JDL to Visit Israel, but Not to Stay?

י״ד לחודש תשע״ה

I just now saw the following post on a Facebook group...
The Jewish Defense League will be in Israel from October 30 till November 12th. Our intention is to attend the 25th memorial for Rabbi Meir Kahane. We will also confront and expose the PFLP Sabeel gang while they are in Israel.
Esser Agaroth (2¢):

Look.

I'm trying very hard to give you the benefit of the doubt.

I know that you want to protect the elderly from the Jew-hatred out there, who for whatever reason, do not have the support to make aliyah (Jewish immigration to Israel).

You want to protect the disabled, as well as the Jews, religious and otherwise, who still do not get that the U. S. is not our country, hoping that they will wake up, like you have, pack their bags, and get on the plane already.

But, when will it be time for you to get on the plane finally, and not just for a visit, and to do misswoth?

We're the ones on the front lines, here in Israel, and we could use your help.

Rabbi Meir Kahane hy"d
You need to think about when to save yourselves, and do what JDL Founder, Rabbi Meir Kahane did, ditch your golah (exile), your temporary dwelling place, just like Egypt was supposed to be, and build your lives here, in the only true homeland of the Jewish People, Eretz Yisra'el (Land of Israel).

And, I said "Land," and not "State." So, you cannot make excuses for not making aliyah, like about how messed up, and counter-Torah the State is. I already know.

But, I'm here, trying to make a difference, and we could use your help.

Kerry Warns Jews. So, What Else Is New?

י"ג לחודש החמישי תשע"ה

The Weekly Standard: Kerry Warns: Jews Will Be Blamed If Congress Sinks Iran Deal
Rafael Medoff, July 26, 2015

U. S. Secretary of State John Kerry
Secretary of State John Kerry's warning that Israel will be "blamed" if Congress opposes the Iran agreement conjures up troubling memories of other instances in which Israel or Jews were warned they might be blamed for international conflicts.

Secretary Kerry made his remark in an address to the Council of Foreign Relations on July 24. He appeared to be not merely predicting that Israel might be blamed, but hinting that the Obama administration itself might do the blaming. And since the administration has repeatedly claimed that rejection of the agreement will lead to war with Iran, the implication of Kerry's statement seems to be that Israel, the Jewish state, would be to blame for such a war.

The possibility that the blame would be extended to Israel's supporters in the United States has already been raised by President Obama himself, in his warning that unnamed "lobbyists" and "money" were trying to block the Iran deal. (cont.)

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
So, what else is new?

Hmm...

Should we support this ridiculous, yet insane and deadly deal with Iran, which increases the danger to millions of Jewish lives, in a futile attempt to be validated, accepted, and loved by the goyim (non-Jews)?

OR

Should we risk being blamed for this ridiculous, yet insane and deadly deal with Iran, failing to receive Congressional approval, but would prevent an increase in danger to millions of Jewish lives?

Is this seriously NOT a no-brainer for people?

Are we Jews THAT self-loathing, desperate for acceptance? Are we THAT suicidal?

Unfortunately, it seems that we are.

Naftali Bennett Making Progress?

י״ג לחודש החמישי תשע״ה

YNET: Settlers Clash with Police in Beit El
Itay Blumenthal, 28.07.15

...The renewed violence on Tuesday came just after Education Minister Naftali Bennett spoke to the crowd, decrying the government's use of the military in the settlement overnight.

"In the early morning hours I spoke to the prime minister. I demanded that during the day, the government of Israel issues an official message to the High Court that it opposes the destruction of homes, and we're following up on that now," Bennett said.

Angry settlers in the crowd called on Bennett to quit the government, a move that would need to either a new coalition or new elections.


Video: Naftali Bennett telling the crowd in Beth-El about his talk with Prime Minister Netanyahu, then proclaiming that, "If disengagement occurs here, it will happen another time."

Seconds after Bennett finished speaking, the violent clashes with police resumed when settlers tried to break into the Draynoff buildings. The settlers were shouting at police, "You've destroyed a home in Israel" and "A Jew doesn't evict a Jew" (cont.)

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Naftali Bennett
Could the residents of Beth-El be getting it after all?

No. Not really, especially when their children are handing out drinks to the same security forces, there to expel their neighbors from their homes.

What were they thinking?!

Speaking of "education," as far as Minister of Education Naftali Bennett goes, he sure made a few, good comments. They must have been, if "seconds after Bennett finished speaking, the violent clashes with police resumed when settlers tried to break into the Draynoff buildings."

(Without the help of the drink servers, of course!)

However, if Naftali Bennett has not yet figured out that the Israeli government does not give a rat's tuchus that Eretz Yisra'el (Land of Israel), all of Eretz Yisra'el belongs to the Jews, with or without Arab testimony, then I am not so sure that he ever will.

The apparent political battle between Prime Minister Netanyahu and the Israeli Supreme Court is just an illusion, a good example of "good cop-bad cop," being played by the government to its advantage.

Plus, until Bennett recants his infamous "plan," which includes granting autonomy to some Arabs, under an Israeli annexation of Yehudah and Shomron (Judea and Samaria), and granting Israeli citizenship to others, I'm counting him out as a serious contributor of benefit for the Jewish People.

Bennett's Plan vs. Arafat's Plan
Can you tell the difference? Neither can I.
The same goes for his cohort in Torah ignorance, MK Tzippy Hotovely.

Let's Face It! Huckabee Is Right!

י״ג לחודש החמישי תשע״ה

Mike Huckabee
Politico: Mike Huckabee not backing down after Holocaust remark
Nick Gass 7/27/15

Mike Huckabee is not backing away from his strident criticism of President Barack Obama and the Iranian nuclear deal — even as his fellow Republican presidential candidates distance themselves from his remarks.

A day after making an explicit comparison to the Holocaust in denouncing the agreement, the former Arkansas governor continued to make his case on Twitter.

In an earlier interview with Breitbart News published Saturday, Huckabee said that Obama is “naive” in trusting Iran to uphold its part of the deal. “By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven.”


The Anti-Defamation League, which monitors anti-Semitism, immediately denounced Huckabee’s language. (cont.)
Esser Agaroth (2¢):
L: Corpse being loaded into a Nazi oven. The deceased has been greyed out to prevent bizu'i hameth (disrespect of the dead).
R: Hiroshima, Japan after being hit by a nuclear bomb in 1945.

What could possibly be more closely compared to an oven from the Holocaust, than a nuclear explosion?

Nothing.

The Nazis' ovens were only used to incinerate the dead. Nuclear bombs kill and incinerate, at the same time.

For those of us recognizing that intermarriage is the second holocaust, it shouldn't be any stretch.



And, for those of us who actually live in Israel, placing ourselves on the front lines, under constant threat of bombardment by Hezbollah's thousands of missiles from the north, by Hamas's rockets from the south, Arab bombers, snipers, and stabbers, not to mention the increasing threat from ISIS, this should be a no-brainer.

The same goes for all of our friends and relatives, living in the U. S. At least you would think.

As for the Anti-Defemation League [ADL], none of us should be in the least bit surprised by its comments.

It's as blind as it ever was.

And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven; and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. And, behold, the LORD stood beside him, and said: 'I am the LORD, the God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac. The land where you lie, to you will I give it, and to your seed. And your seed will be as the dust of the earth, and you will spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south. And in you and in your seed you, will all the families of the earth be blessed. And, behold, I am with you, and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back into this land; for I will not leave you, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.' And Jacob awakened from his sleep, and he said: 'Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not.' And he was afraid, and said: 'How full of awe is this place! this is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.' And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put under his head, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it. And he called the name of that place Beth-El, but the name of the city was Luz at the first.
There is actually more than one opinion as to where Ya'aqov (Jacob) dreamed his dream. Nevertheless, the connection between Ya'aqov and Beth-El is traditionally strong.
YNET: 200 settlers clash with police in Beit El
Officials join families in defiantly repopulating Sa-Nur, a settlement abandoned in the disengagement, as youths battle security forces for control of Beit El near Ramallah.

Itay Blumenthal, 07.28.15

Violence erupted in the settlement of Beit El near Ramallah late Monday night when a group of approximately 200 young adults took control of the so-called Draynoff buildings, two housing structures which the High Court ordered be torn down Sunday night.

Security forces arrested 50 of the activists according to Honenu, an organization that offers legal help to Israelis. The rest of those protesting in Beit El were removed using riot control measures. The activists claimed that security forces used tear gas was inside the buildings in an attempt to remove those present.

The area was designated as a closed military zone and Israeli Border Police occupied the Draynoff buildings in order to prevent the return of the violent protesters.

Meanwhile, some 250 people, including dozens of families that were removed from the Sa-Nur settlement in the West Bank during the disengagement in 2005, returned to the village overnight without approval from Israeli security forces.

Government officials joined the group, including Bayit HaYehudi MK Bezalel Smotrich and former MK Professor Aryeh Eldad. The entered the fort-like structure that remains standing in Sa-Nur with the intention of permanently returning to the settlement.

"Ten years after the disengagement, it's about time to fix things. And that begins here, in northern Samaria," said Smotrich in a press release. "Families have begun settling into the rooms of the fort with the intention of staying for some time. We don't intend to move from here."

Security officials offered Smotrich and the others in Sa-Nur nothing but an ultimatum that they would be removed by force if they had not left of their own free will by 2pm.

Political Storm
The events in Beit El also led to a political storm Tuesday, with leaders on the political right claiming they were doing their utmost to strengthen settlements and prevent the destruction of the Draynoff buildings.

PM
"Our stance on this issue is clear," said Netanyahu. "We oppose their destruction and we're acting through the courts to prevent this step."

While making similar comments himself, Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon's decision to send troops into the settlement drew criticism from his political partners from Bayit Yehudi and former foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman who called for Ya'alon's resignation.

From the other side of the settlement debate, Yesh Atid Chairman Yair Lapid called for the full support of IDF troops on the ground in Beit El.

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Rabbi Zalman Melamed
After the Israeli governments last shenanigans in Beth-El, the town's Rabbi Melamed himself said he had felt betrayed by the government.

So, why are Beth-El residents repeating the thing over again, trusting the government, expecting different results?

The last time there were major clashes in Beth-El, they were between residents, misguided, State loyalists, and those defending Jewish settlement of Israel. Now they are back to being between the police and residents. Does this mean that Beth-El is waking up?


Nothing exciting to see here, except that the Israeli Border Police do not seem to like being videotaped very much, do they?
(Video: Beth-El Spokeswomen)

No. Apparently not.

What in the heck are these kids from Beth-El doing, handing out drinks to the same security forces, there to expel their neighbors from their homes??!!

Arutz 7 TV
(Screen Shot)
Anyone involved at all in these kids' education should be fired, and that includes their mamlakhti (diehard, State loyalist) parents!

The message has been clear for ages, Arab testimony is held on a higher level than Jewish testimony, even when the Arabs do not have any documents to support their claims, but the Jews do.

Equal enforcement of the law towards Jews, as suggested by Defense Minister Ya'alon and MK Lapid? I think not.

Who is running the country? The legislature, elected to enact the will of the people? Or the courts?

We have met the enemy, and they are the Erev Rav courts,...those officials allowing this travesty to continue, and those of us standing idly by.

I think that we Jews need to get over this whole democracy thing, and fast. There is a reason is not working.

It's not Jewish.

The Torah is the only justification Jews have for laying claim to Eretz Yisra'el (Land of Israel), ALL of Eretz Yisra'el. Yet, it is very rare, indeed, that an MK will ever quote from the Torah, to point out this justification.

I am the LORD, the God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac. The land where you lie, to you will I give it, and to your seed. And your seed will be as the dust of the earth, and you will spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south. And in you and in your seed you, will all the families of the earth be blessed. And, behold, I am with you, and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back into this land; for I will not leave you, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.' (Gen. 28:13-15)
PLO Emblem
Mahmud Abbas's Pseudostine
There is no difference between Beth-El and Har HaBayith (Temple Mount) and Tel-Aviv. Not only does all of it belong to us, but the Arabs want it all.

The Palestinian Pseudostinian Liberation Organization's [PLO] emblem and Palestinian Pseudostinian Authority President Abbas's map speak for themselves.

When will our government finally get that through its thick skull?

When we will finally get it through our thick skulls, that the government never will?

Would You Help These Jewish Refugees?

י״א לחודש החמישי תשע״ה

I saw this ad calling for donations to help families still struggling after their expulsion from Azza (Gaza), ten years ago yesterday.


Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Personally, I mixed feelings about helping these Jewish refugees.

When I first moved to the Shomron (Samaria), I was very surprised to learn that most of those living in Yehudah (Judea), Shomron, and, yes, even Azza were mamlakhtim (die-hard state loyalists). Only a handful of towns, and handfuls of residents in other towns were considered to be strongly connected to Torah taking precedence over Israeli law, whenever the two were in conflict.
"How could our government do this to us!"

"But, we love the State of Israel!"
...were only two of the many cries I remember hearing from the residents of Azza, who were shocked that the expulsion actually happened, and that their government of their Holy State would actually do something like this to them..

I say "Azza," because the area of Gush Qatif was actually only in the southern part of Azza. Four, if not five, of the towns, depending on who you ask, were nowhere near Gush Qatif.

Before the expulsion, members of then Prime Minister Sharon's Likud Party living in Yehudah, Shomron, and Azza, went door to door, visiting fellow Likud Party members, in order to convince them to vote against Sharon's unilateral move to expel Jews from Azza. At first, this strategy appeared to be successful, as the referendum failed. However, in true political form, Sharon went against his own party members' wishes, by pushing through the expulsion anyway.

He simply left the Likud, and formed his own, new, Kadima Party, with none other than Shimon Peres.

And the response from residents of Azza?

More than ten years ago, Efraim Tashnady, long time resident of Neveh Deqalim, approached his local rabbis to ask what they were doing to organize the struggle against their impending expulsion from their homes in Gush Qatif (Southern Azza).

The rabbi's response?
Rabbi: "Pray." 
ET: "To pray is good. But which practical steps are being taken?" 
Rabbi: "None. Pray. It is upon everyone to take personal inventory, with whichever rabbis he listens to. Not once in history have entire communities been led to such ruin." (What about Yamit?)
Most of the residents of Azza proceeded to follow this advice, and to remain in the same denial until it was too late.

And, what did other rabbis do?

Some rabbis actually aided in the expulsion. That's right. They actually told residents to leave their homes, and helped remove their belonging. Those "rabbis" included Shlomo Aviner, who is still prohibited from making rulings on niddah, yet continues to do so anyway, and Moti Elon, whose coercion of his students to engage in sexual acts with him was recently exposed by his peers.

The relationship between mamlakhti "settlers" and the Israeli government is like co-dependent spouse of an abusive alcoholic, who keeps going back, to be abused some more.

Sure, I feel for these Jewish refugees. But, it is high time to break this cycle of co-dependent, self-destruction, and let the co-dependents on the government which has continued to abuse them all these years to struggle on their own until they snap out of victim mode, and realize who is really on their side, and its not the Israeli government.

So, would you donate to help these Jewish refugees?

I'm not so sure that I would.

Think an expulsion of Jews could never happen again?

Guess again.
Arutz 7 Expert: Israeli Leaders Haven't Learned from Gush KatifProfessor Moshe Sharon says Israeli leaders are still thinking of another expulsion, despite the failure of the first one. 
Hezki Ezra, 7/27/2015 
Middle East expert Professor Moshe Sharon told Arutz Sheva on Sunday that, 10 years after the “Disengagement” from Gush Katif, Israeli leaders still have not learned a lesson. 
“It is obvious that the expulsion from Gush Katif was a very bad mistake, and I do not want to use harsher words. The mistake is not only because we abandoned the security of the State of Israel as a result of the expulsion of Jews and abandoned the control that we had on this area by the IDF," he said. 
"Once we left Gush Katif we gave the whole region to Hamas and gave them a free hand to act against us. Not only did Hamas humiliate the people of Israel when it burned synagogues, we also brought hundreds of thousands of civilians under the threat of terrorism,” added Sharon. (cont.)

Is Women In Green's Progress Really Progress?

ערב שבת קודש פר׳ דברים/חזון תשע״ה

From a Women In Green e-mail update...

Something New in the Tisha b’Av Walk around the Walls – No Limitations by Police...

...The heads of Women in Green, Yehudit Katsover and Nadia Matar, note that contrary to previous years, this year the police have not placed any restrictions on the walk. As we may remember, in the past, certain elements within the Jerusalem Police tried to divert the route of the walk from locations that were defined as foci of friction with the Muslim population and they have even tried to have the walk cancelled. Actually, all of the previous walks ended without any confrontations at all. This year, as mentioned, the police refrained from any such attempts. Women in Green are pleased with this and see it as a testimony to the power of this great tradition to bring about changes even unto the top ranks among the police....
Esser Agaroth (2¢):
"...a testimony to the power of this great tradition to bring about changes?"

Because the police have not set any restrictions on the walk around Jerusalem's Old City?

Perhaps.

But, my money is on this being propped up illusion of progress. When we are allowed to ascend the Har HaBayith (Temple Mount) freely, whenever we choose, and pray there, then I will consider that success.

Nay! Rather when we begin building the Beth HaMiqdash (Temple), and bringing qorbanoth (sacrifices), then I will join in the cries of victory (בלי נדר).

Furthermore, we still cannot rule out the possibility that the police and/or Arabs have some tricks up their sleeves planned for this Saturday night. So, I would like to recommend to Women In Green to be very much on their guard.

Israel's Big Helicopter Giveaway to Jordan!

ערב שבת קודש פר׳ דברים/חזון תשע״ה

YNET: Israeli Cobras gifted to Jordan for 'border security'
US source says about 16 decommissioned attack helicopters given to Jordan last year to fend off potential attacks from ISIS.

Reuters, 07.23.15

Israel has given retired US-supplied Cobra combat helicopters to Jordan to help the Hashemite kingdom fend off insurgent threats on the Syrian and Iraqi borders, a US official with knowledge of the deal said.

The handover, initiated last year, was approved by Washington, which provided mechanical overhauls for the aircraft before they were incorporated free of charge in Jordan's existing Cobra fleet, the official said.

"These choppers are for border security," the official, who requested anonymity due to the sensitivity of the issue, told Reuters.

Asked how many Cobras were transferred, the official said: "Around 16, though some may have been used by the Jordanians for spare parts" rather than kept intact.

Jordanian and Israeli officials declined comment, as did the Pentagon.

Israel and Jordan, as well as Saudi Arabia and Iraq, this week hosted US Defense Secretary Ash Carter, who offered reassurances about the regional fight against Islamic State and the July 14 international deal curbing Iran's nuclear program. (cont.)


Esser Agaroth (2¢):
And with U. S. approval to boot! How gracious of them!

And what business is it of theirs anyway? So, they overhauled them. So what?

Oh, yeah, and the U. S. has provided us with "reassurances?" Yeah, right! Those are worth absolutely nothing!

Israeli AH-1F Cobras flying over Masada.

Anyway, how much do you wanna bet that these helicopters, gifted to Jordan, will just be used against us, here in Israel?

Either they will be taken be ISIS, when Jordan falls. Or Jordan itself will use them against us, with or without an Islamist takeover first.

Seriously, I think our co-dependence on other nations is more of our enemies than other nations themselves.

We are making it just way too easy for them to destroy us.

The Same IDF Treatment Toward Jews as Palestinians? Not Quite.

ז׳ לחודש החמישי תשע״ה
YNET: IDF: Same treatment for Palestinian, Jewish rioters 
Soldiers ordered to respond to Jewish stone-throwers just as they do to Palestinians - with riot control measures, Krav Maga. 

Yoav Zitun, 07.13.15

Israel's security forces often find themselves in delicate situations that have led to harsh claims of racism and misconduct. But orders passed through the chain of command over the last year paint a different picture - one in which both Palestinian and Jewish rioters earn the same response.

"The command tells soldiers not to treat Palestinian or Jewish stone throwers differently," said a military source who expanded on the details of the order.

"In every case of Jewish attacks against Palestinians, the reaction has to be immediate," said the source, "And there are four red lines: One, damage to property or the body of a Palestinian; two, throwing stones at security forces; three, verbal violence against a soldier, police officer, or border police officer; four, damage to IDF property."

 The order has been revised several times in the past, first appearing as a result of several incidents between right-wing activists and IDF soldiers. In many of these cases, soldiers stood by in instances of violence against Palestinians.

"We explain to combat soldiers that there is no difference between a Jewish and a Palestinian who breaks the law," said a senior officer. "There are no special regulations for firing on a Palestinian." (cont.)
And thus there are no special regulations for firing on a Jew.

Anyone out there, worried about a "War Between Brothers" (civil war), this is your cue to start whining about it. (Hint: It already began ages ago.)

Just like the Jew hatred is pushing Jews in the direction of, the erev rav gov't is pushing settlers/religious Jews (including Haredim)

Towns like Yitzhar get it. But, what about towns like Ofra and Neve Daniel? Will they?

Jews and Arabs are to be treated the same, huh? Not quite.
Arutz 7: Jewish Minor Brutally Assaulted by Cops in Demolition Protest
Youth protesting Beit El destruction gets violently assaulted by cops, necessitating hospital treatment; now his case is in court.

Nir Har-Zahav, 7/20/2015

The Jerusalem Magistrate's Court is to discuss on Monday the case of a Jewish youth who was arrested near Kiryat Arba in Judea on Sunday night, during one of a series of protests against the intended demolition of homes in Beit El located north of Jerusalem in Samaria.

The Honenu legal aid organization has revealed that the Jewish minor was brutally assaulted during his arrest by police officers, and was treated at Shaare Tzedek Hospital in Jerusalem on Monday night for wounds sustained during the beating.

Honenu has turned to the division for the investigation of officers, in a request for an investigation against those policemen who beat the youth. (cont.)
Yeah, good luck with that one!
PM Netanyahu
The Supreme Court ruled roughly a month ago that several buildings in the eastern part of Beit El are to be demolished by July 30.

In a stormy meeting last Monday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu admitted he intends to renege his campaign pledge to build 300 housing units in Beit El, saying he will allow the demolition to go ahead.

Netanyahu reneging on a campaign pledge? Please do not tell me that this comes as a surprise to you. 
He also clarified his intentions to continue a covert total freeze on Jewish construction in Judea and Samaria that his coalition governments have been enacting for roughly two years now.

Regarding Beit El, there has been criticism against the paradigm by which all non-state land in Judea and Samaria is automatically considered to be Arab-owned private land, even without any proof of ownership, and therefore construction on it is deemed illegal.
Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Go figure. Since the Torah says that the Land is ours, and the government says that it is not, that means that the government is contradicting the Torah.

And, PLEASE, do not tell me that this comes as a surprise to you, and PLEASE to not throw one of those mamlakhti (diehard State loyalist) responses at me, like "it's more complicated than that" or "we have to be patient" or that "the K'nesseth is a stand-in for a Jewish king."

Haven't you learned your lesson yet?

Still think the Government Of Israel [GOI] is a Jewish government?

I think not.

Who could possibly forget this powerful photo taken at the expulsion of Jews from Amona in תשס״ו/2006?
Nili: “You see me in the photograph, one against many, but that is only an illusion – behind the many stands one man – [Prime Minister Ehud] Olmert, but behind me stand the Lord and the people of Israel.”


Nili is pretty optimistic when she says that there is only one person standing on the other side of the Yassa"m (Israeli riot police) shields. For she is actually up against the Erev Rav. But, she is right about one thing. She has got The Almighty and the People of Israel behind her. We just need to remember that those people calling themselves "Jews" or "Israelis," who are not with her, are against her.

It is going to worse for the Jews!
